New York City must end all animal abuse and mistreatment in our city, and ensure that no more animals are mistreated for the sake of human greed or profit. Mel will give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves and work to ensure that all animals are treated with kindness and dignity.
What Mel Will Do About It:
- Crack down on puppy farms and hold shelters responsible for the welfare of their charges.
- Collaborate with community leaders and elected officials to ensure the availability of vegetarian and vegan meals in our schools, hospitals, and senior centers.
- Encourage schools to teach our children about the importance of protecting animals and treating them humanely.
- Protect our parks and natural spaces, and enforce leash rules and other protections for wild animals.
