|About||Salem Saves Animals is dedicated to the change in animal abuse laws and to promoting education and awareness in our community through positive example.|
Salem Saves Animals is dedicated to the advocacy of change in the laws of animal abuse in our neighborhood and country. We are also working to promote education and awareness in our community, to show people that everyone can do something to help make a difference.
When New York City was able to get an Animal Abuse Registry into affect after only a few short months, we were inspired to work towards getting a registry in our own city. Although there are petitions and laws being discussed in state and national government offices, it is unknown how long it will take before there is massive change; our goal is to begin spreading awareness in our own neighborhood and branch out, inspiring others to follow our example.
As we become a Non Profit Organization our team will be hosting fundraisers and charity events to raise money for local shelters to take care of animal bills and legal fees.
|Description||After the horrific tragedy of the "Puppy Doe" animal abuse case rocked media across America, our group of dedicated animal lovers were moved to spark change in our local community to protect innocent animals from those who would do them harm. Our founder, Lorelei Stathopoulos, was so upset by the savagery committed that she and founding member Leanne Marrama attended the Puppy Doe hearings to honor the poor creature who had suffered. After being unwelcome by other protesters, Lorelei used her feelings of deep anger and sadness to promote change. Now Salem Saves Animals is working hard to promote tougher penalties and longer jail sentences for individuals who commit vicious crimes against our four legged friends. With the aid of Senator Joan Lovely, we are working to implement an Animal Abusers Registry in the city of Salem; we are also working to assist local shelters to find good homes for abandoned animals.|
