Rep. Camillo (R-Greenwich) spoke to a room full of students at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT about the legislation he has proposed this year to combat animal abuse and neglect. The course, “Animal Law and Policy,” is the first of its kind at the university, and Rep. Camillo was invited to address the class and discuss his specific initiatives at the Capitol.
On February 20, 2018, Rep. Camillo joined his colleagues in the Connecticut Legislators Caucus for Animal Welfare at a press conference to unveil their 2018 legislative agenda. Initiatives for this year include adequate shelter for dogs in extreme weather, modifications for accelerated rehabilitation for animal abusers, and recommendations from the Human Animal Welfare Task Force.
Rep. Camillo is committed to helping the voiceless constituency in Connecticut. Animals from household pets to police canines deserve protection under the law, and the caucus hopes to move the state into the number one spot for animal compassion in the near future. We are currently ranked number five.
