A fundraiser benefit has been started by New York attorney Ross Martin Abelow. This fundraiser has a goal to raise over $5000 for help area shelters with medical costs, food and even blankets for the homeless animals.
There are so many animals in need as the dangerous winter temperatures plummet resulting in many animals left with no visible means of shelter or to just keep warm. Whether they are faced with lack of financial resources or space by the shelters, these animals are not likely to survive without the help of caring individuals like Ross Abelow. Abelow’s hopes his efforts will help to keep more animals in the shelters to avoid these tragic events from happening.
Across the country, over 15 million animals are brought to area shelters every year, and only about 25% of them are placed in forever homes. For the poor unfortunate ones that do not find homes, they are put to sleep. With the area shelters being overrun, and the winter weather conditions, the number of animals that simply do not survive may reach an even higher percentage.
The leading cause of the overwhelming amount of pets being homeless is the rapid reproduction that is now providing a higher rate of survival of these animals. Another factor is the commercial breeding trade that has caused over-breeding and many cases of neglect by the owners and breeders.
Ross Abelow has been a long time resident of New York and received his license to practice law back in 1990 from the State of New York. After attending New York’s State University as an undergrad, Abelow obtained his law degree in 1998 from the Brooklyn Law School.
His specialty has always been focused around family law, including matrimonial law as well as commercial litigation and entertainment. Over his 26 year career in handling clients, he was made a partner in the law firm of Abelow & Cassandro, LLP.
This fundraiser was established by Abelow in order to prevent unnecessary animal deaths and provide a longer term residence at area shelters for these animals. This will allow the shelters, additional time and resources to find forever homes for these homeless animals.
