Serious About Animal Rescue

Larry and his friends are serious about animal rescue. It is always at the forefront of his mind and how could it not be. Larry loves animals, especially dogs and cats. It is important that we treat these creatures with kindness and caring, that we act responsibly when it comes to these helpless creatures. You only have to witness a cruel puppy farm once or a box of dead kittens once to know that we are still not where we need to be in protecting our four legged friends.

Larry Romano is always open to helping promote animal shelters, animal rescues and animal non-profits. It is his passion to rescue as many animals as he possibly can during his time on this earth. In fact, Larry has developed a proposal to be presented to state politicians for consideration in making changes or amendments to the animal laws on the books. He calls it Animal Love Laws.

Animal Love Laws

“Everybody is entitled to make a living, just not at the expense of other living creatures”

According to Larry, the problem is the never-ending stream of Dogs and Cats who are being caged and euthanized in the United States due to over breeding caused by lax breeding laws.

His Solution … Strict New Federal Breeding Laws that will put an end to over-breeding and stop the once endless stream of Cats and Dogs who are slaughtered at Tax Payer Funded Animal Shelters.
