Shelley Rios, Attorney at Law and co-founder of
The Animal Protectorates™ (TAPS), recently requested a donation of primer and paint from the Dunn-Edwards
Paints of Burbank to support TAPS and Operation Adopt. JoAnn MacKenzie,
its manager, responded generously by providing 20 gallons of primer and
25 gallons of paint, as well as volunteered hours of labor. The goal of
Operation Adopt is to provide members of the Burbank community a rescue-only
pet shop and humane education center. The donations of paint and primer
will be used to decorate and garnish this storefront.
What the firm does would not be possible without the generous donations
from businesses like Dunn-Edwards and people like you. The firm cannot
express their gratitude through words for what JoAnn MacKenzie and others
have done to help further this important cause.
Other than providing an awareness of animal cruelty and advocating the
fair treatment of all animals everywhere, TAPS also has a focus on the
legal reclassification of animals as more than just property but instead
as valued members of our families with rights and privileges of their
own. The organization also financially supports and collaborates with
other programs and groups that encourage the protection of animals.
If you would like to learn more about TAPS and Operation Adopt –
or if you would like to speak to a Los Angeles animal law attorney that
truly cares about animals and their well-being – please
contact the firm of Shelley Rios, Attorney at Law, today.
