The Susie’s Law First Responders mobile app is the #1 way to speak up for animals without a voice in North Carolina.
Stay Informed. Unite. Be their voice.
This app allows you to stay informed about important proposed animal protection legislation. Most importantly it gives you the power to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves by quickly and easily contacting your state and local NC representatives from your Android device, giving you and thousands of others the collective power to impact the passing of important animal welfare laws.
In 2009, Susie was a puppy found in Greensboro, NC brutally beaten, with 2nd & 3rd degree burns over 60% of her body. She had a will to survive and recovered while capturing the hearts of people all over the Country. Susie’s perpetrator received minimal punishment and no jail time. Concerned citizens knew changes had to be made to make cruelty and killing of animals a Class H felony, bringing incarceration, and helping to put an end to countless cases of animal abuse each year. After many months of NC citizens calling, and writing letters and emails to their legislators, Susie’s Law PASSED unanimously and went into effect December 1, 2010.
This app is dedicated to Susie and all the other animals out there who have suffered as a result of abuse and neglect in North Carolina.
However, this is only the beginning. North Carolina still has a ways to go in protecting the rights of those who don’t have a voice for themselves. With this app you can be a ‘first responder’, receiving timely “Action Alerts” asking for quick action in the form of emailing your government official to tell them you support a new animal rights bill that is being proposed. You will also be informed when a law is passed or when more help is needed.
North Carolina Voters for Animal Welfare (NCVAW) is a state-wide grass-roots organization dedicated to improving the care and treatment of all animals. Support their efforts by downloading, using and sharing the Susie’s Law First Responder App. By doing so, you are the voice for the animals of NC!
