Support CAARA by emailing and/or mailing letters to the following individuals on the Agriculture Committee (see copy-and-paste email/letter template at the bottom of this webpage):
Dear Assemblyman/Assemblywoman/Senator ________:
I ask you to support the Companion Animal Adoption & Rescue Act (CAARA), introduced by Assembly Member Micah Kellner and New York State Senator Joseph Robach. This bill, known as Assembly number A.7312-A, and S05363A in the Senate, will reduce the number of animals killed in shelters throughout the state.
This legislation will benefit not just the shelter animals, but the citizens of New York who support humane treatment of animals and administrative accountability in the shelter system. To end convenience killing, to ensure shelter animals are receiving adequatefood and water, and to require transparency in shelter operations are just a few of the provisions of the bill that the citizens of New York, including myself, support.
I hope that I can count on you as my senator to support this important legislation. If you wish to speak with me, I can be reached at (phone number). Thank you for your consideration.
