On Friday, State Representative Fred Camillo (R-Greenwich) was honored with the Humane Legislator Award by the Humane Society of the United States in recognition of his commitment to supporting animal protection legislation in Connecticut.
The award was presented to Camillo on Friday at Adopt A Dog.
“In the ten years since we started the first ever animal welfare caucus in the nation, we have become a top five rated state when it comes to how we treat our animals,” Camillo said, adding that despite the accomplishments, there remains much work yet to do.
“Working on behalf of the voiceless constituency is one of my passions, and I pledge to continue the efforts for as long as I can. I am honored to be recognized by HSUS, a wonderful national organization with a broad reach, but I would also like to share this award with every person out there who advocates and volunteers for our animal friends. They give me hope, faith, and inspiration to carry on with the work ahead. ”
