Animal Beat: Senator Greenstein Responds to Animal Shelter Abuses

Animal Beat: Senator Greenstein Responds to Animal Shelter Abuses
BY PAT SUMMERS

COMMENTARY

When animal welfare activists protested horrific conditions at an area animal shelter, Senator Linda R. Greenstein (D-Middlesex/Mercer) listened. Then she convened a meeting of "concerned citizens, officials and experts" from around the state to consider whether the laws governing New Jersey animal shelters need reforming.

Years from now, those committed to animal welfare may remember January 2015 as the time when things started getting better for shelter animals. That’s when discussions began that may lead to potential "reforms through state law that may be needed to improve conditions not only at Helmetta [Regional Animal Shelter] but at shelters around New Jersey."
