The Animal Law Committee provides education, updates and analysis of relevant issues, and holds regular meetings to discuss the changes and new directions in animal law. The Committee will maintain a website and offer CLE and public service programs. It shall also serve as a reference point to facilitate cooperation with government agencies, non-governmental humane societies, rescue organizations, animal clubs, breeders of animals, and other entities and persons involved in legal issues affecting animals.
Holiday Pet Food Drive!
The Animal Law Committee is collecting canned cat and dog food, dry cat and dog food, treats and cat litter for its 2013 Holiday Pet Food Drive. All items will be donated to pet food pantries and shelters throughout South Carolina. Pet food pantries provide pet food to needy families so that more families can keep their pets instead of having to surrender them to a municipal shelter. Items dropped off at any of the following locations through Dec. 31. For more information, contact Katie Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax-deductible monetary donations to specific pet food banks are also welcome. Please mail checks directly to a specific pet food bank and include “pet food bank” or “S.C. Bar Holiday Food Drive” on the check. Pet food donations can also be made through online retailers, such as Amazon and Petango, and shipped directly to the pet food bank.
