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: Strays [Chapter 2]

I had planned on getting this post up yesterday, but I was celebrating my partner’s birthday so I wasn’t on the computer until late. I hope my first post covering the prologue and first chapter of Strays inspired you to grab your own copy. For the readers who are new to my blog, I am … Continue reading

Today in Speciesism: Why does the Nebraska legislature want to protect animal abusers, but criminalize animal rights activists who use drone photography?

I was going through my Google alert notifications when I came upon “Bill seeks to stop drone use to spy on people, harass cows“, an article written by Grant Schulte. The headline was appalling enough; the text of the article was even worse. Not only does the article fail in its objectivity – it only … Continue reading

Hi everyone! New year, new books to read! I’m starting off this year’s Reading Series, in which I blog about the books I’m reading, with the novel Strays by Jennifer Caloyeras.

Reading Series: What’s Planned for 2018 (I hope you join me!)

As you guys know, last year I blogged as I read the nonfiction book Dogland. I feel like I blogged the book way too slowly, so this year I declare to pick up the pace and stick to a schedule. I know the first two books I will be reading and blogging about, so read … Continue reading

TGI Fridays now has Beyond Meat burgers! But vegans, don’t get fries with that.

Following a successful test run in October, the restaurant decided to include the Beyond burger in ALL of its locations starting… NOW! That’s right, at any of the 450+ TGI Fridays … Continue reading

Book Review: A Place To Call Home: Toby’s Tale

As you may know, throughout this past year I blogged the nonfiction book, Dogland. Dogland, written by Jacki Skole, investigates the American shelter system and rescue efforts, looking for answers on how we can reduce euthanasia rates in shelters and help adoptable dogs find homes. Now, what you don’t know is that some time ago, … Continue reading

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
