Ross Abelow: Rallying For the Benefit of Animals

Animals have for a long time been essential to the society. In recognition of this, a renowned and successful lawyer in New York initiated a fundraiser with the primary objective of taking care of animals in the city. While the target has been set at $5000, Ross Abelow has pledged to donate the entire amount that will be raised for the provision of care and shelter to animals in need especially in times of winter when the temperature drops considerably. At this time, some animals have been established to suffer a lot from the unfavorable weather. The premise and influencing factor for the project was the need to take care of animals that suffered owing to adverse weather conditions.

The money will be distributed across different animal home shelters across the city. The primary objective will be directed towards offering warmth and medication to the rescued animals during winter. The GoFundMe page has provided a description of the nature of the project as well as offered a clear indication of how the money will be spent. This is a clear indication of the high degrees of transparency and accountability that Ross holds himself in the animal welfare project. The animal shelters that will benefit from the proceeds do not necessarily have to have any specific animal. As long as they pledge to advance the interests of animals, they fit the bill. This is evidently a laudable and noble cause.

Ross has been in practice in New York since 1990 when he was licensed. Over the years, he has built a reputation as one of the most successful and accomplished lawyers. He has been involved in a number of high profile cases which he successfully argued. With a focus on family law, Ross has a successful academic background since graduating from Brooklyn Law School. His becoming partner at Abelow and Cassandro is an illustration of the strides he has made in life to this point. He has always been committed to using law practice to advance the interests of members of the community. During his spare time, Ross writes and submits legal articles on emerging legal issues.

Ross has set an important example to everyone in society particularly when it comes to caring for animals and engaging in general acts of charity. As seen from his expertise and how he chooses to work, Ross will continue enjoying success in his field of practice and in life in general.

The Dog Food Revolution

The old tradition of feeding pets with the remains of human food is dead and gone. Innovation has brought into the market specific enriched foods for pets. People are also moving away from the old-fashioned canned dog food. Some of these innovators are so obsessed with the quality of their products and use only fresh ingredients.

The producers make sure that their meals do not sit for long on the shelves so that they are consumed while still fresh and the original flavor is not lost. The products are supplied to big stores like Amazon, Wal-marts and Targets. They also brand the refrigerated cases, and it therefore becomes very easy to identify a specific product for a prospective client.

Some companies have even injected the aspect of customized pet food. In this, a pet owner who is believed to be best placed in knowing his/her pet’s dietary needs is allowed to choose the ingredients and proportions for their pet. The ‘self-cooked’ pet meal is then delivered to the pet owner.

One of the renowned producers of pet food is Purina store with their Purina Beneful brand, Beneful dog food. Their ingredients include real meat and veggies rich in vitamins. This means that with a Beneful brand, one gets a completely balanced meal for your dog. The tastes of the food and textures are also top notch.

The Manager of Technical Operations, Mr. Kevin, is steering the company to its heights. He says that growing up in a farm gave him a unique perspective on the ingredients and the best processes that are involved in making the best quality dog food.

The nutritious dog food by Beneful is fed to more than 15 million dogs every year. Their quality control and protocols ensure their products meet all the requirements of the safety regulation bodies like FDA, AAFCO and USDA. Their ingredients are also tested for over 150 substances like lead, arsenic and mycotoxins. Beneful staff are also pet lovers and feed their dogs the very same products they make.




If Congressional leaders thought they would get answers from former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli regarding his purchase of a number of drugs and then dramatically increasing the price, they were disappointed. Mr. Shkreli evoked his U. S. Constitutional Fifth Amendment Right against self incrimination on all questions presented to him by the congressional forum. With close ties to Laidlaw & Company and other investment bankers, Mr. Shkreli almost could not contain his disdain for the congressional forum seeking answers in his actions to increase the price of a drug fifty times over overnight.

Shkreli, was the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, before he was indicted on United States securities charges for fraud, this past December. As Shkreli continued to press his right against testifying, various members of the Congressional “House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform” expressed their anger toward him. One member threaten to find Shkreli in contempt but decided to take no action. This did not keep Shkreli from expressing his contempt for the Congressional hearing by tweeting the the members of the Congressional panel were “imbeciles.”MARTIN SHKRELI REFUSES TO TESTIFY

The members of the panel have not indicated whether they would take any further action. Legal experts doubt that further hearings will be called while Shkreli is under indictment. If found guilty of the federal charge levied against him, Shkreli could face up to ten years in federal prison. Shkreli has not been scheduled a new court date yet.
