The Paw Report

I graduated from St. John's University School of Law in 2012, and am admitted to practice law in New York State. I was a member of the New York City Bar Association's Animal Law Committee for three years. I was born and raised in Rhode Island, but moved to New Mexico when I was 18. After dabbling in film for two years, I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a degree in Anthropology. I've been living in New York City since 2008, and currently reside in Brooklyn with my boyfriend and our two cats. I am a former organizer with Direct Action Everywhere - New York City.

Reading Series: Dogland – Meeting Miss Daisy [#readathon post]

It’s the final chapter of the incredible non-fiction book, Dogland. After finishing the book (And no… I’m not crying… not at all!) I will be posting a review on my Goodreads and recommending it as a must-read to every animal advocate I come across. I’m actually a bit sad that the book has come to … Continue reading

Reading Series: Dogland – Teach the Children [#readathon post]

I really wish that I kept on top of my reading posts for this wonderful book, Dogland, by Jacki Skole. It normally doesn’t take me that long to finish a book, but when it comes time to blog about books – I’m horrible at it! So I apologize for the delay and my lack of … Continue reading

Next I’m moving onto Dogland… which I should have been blogging about but I let it lapse. So expect some quick posts as I wrap up my thoughts on Dogland! I am also still fundraising … Continue reading

Raising money for Puerto Rico, and why I’m doing the 24 hour #readathon

On October 21, Dewey’s 24 readathon takes place! I participated last April, although I read nowhere near 24 hours. I plan on reading for at least half the day – if i can hit around 18 hours, I’d be really happy! This will finally get me to knock a few books off my never-ending TBR … Continue reading

Reading Series: Dogland – Dogs for Dollars [#readathon post]

As part of the 24 hour readathon (I don’t think I’ll make it 24 hours! I’m only halfway there…) I wanted to read, and hopefully finish, Dogland. The chapter I read tonight is about bad rescues and the harm they cause to the animal rescue movement. “I realized that rescue had become part of the … Continue reading

Quotes from Coetzee’s novel, “Disgrace” [readathon post]

As part of the 24 hour readathon this year, I decided to re-read – this time finishing! – J.M. Coetzee’s acclaimed masterpiece, “Disgrace.” It’s an important, complicated book on racism, sexism, and exploitation; I can’t recommend it enough! I collected some animal related quotes from the book, along with some images and links. What do … Continue reading

Dairy industry is shook! Outrageous legislation, shocking lobby spending, and more.

The dairy industry thinks consumers are confused about plant-based milk products. Could they be right? Readers, maybe it’s time we had the talk. In case you don’t know, products like “soy milk,” “almond milk,” and “cashew milk” do not come from cows. Cows only produce cow milk. No soya, almond, or cashew were forcibly impregnated … Continue reading

Reading Series: Dogland – Pet Deserts

“The shelter is at the back end of the equation. People need to realize these animals are not the shelter’s problem; they’re the community’s problem.” I love this quote, which comes from Chris Protzman, interviewed by Dogland author Jacki Skole, who helped found the Blount County Animal Center. The chapter I’m currently blogging, Pet Deserts, … Continue reading
