The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has invited the public to join New York State Assemblyman Anthony J. Brindisi and HSUS New York State Director Brian Shapiro for a public forum to discuss animal abuse issues affecting Central New York. Oneida County District Attorney Scott D. McNamara, Sheriff Rob Maciol, and The New York State Humane Association will also be part of the conversation about animal cruelty laws.

The forum will be held on Wednesday, December 18, 2013 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Mohawk Valley Community College, ACC Building, 1101 Sherman Drive in Utica.

"This forum is an opportunity for all who support tougher legislation, to meet and discuss a strategy for achieving this goal," said Assemblymember Brindisi. Animal cruelty has been featured in local headline with tales of bound kittens (rescued before they could be set afire), some left to die in the elements, Lainey the starved dog, and abandoned huskys are just some of the examples.

Individuals concerned about animal cruelty and looking for ways to make a difference may attend this free meeting and discover ways to help.
