Ross Abelow: Giving a Voice to the Voiceless

When the temperatures drop and winter descends, the one place everyone wants to be is in the warm comfort of their home. It is tempting to ignore the outside world and enjoy the safety and security of indoors. Unfortunately, the vast number of strays and abandoned pets in cities and towns means there will inevitably be some animals left out in the cold. There is often a lack of finances that could help these animals survive the harsh winter months, but New York lawyer Ross Abelow is trying to change that.

On January 13th, 2016, Abelow created a GoFundMe campaign to raise $5,000 that will be donated to animal shelters. This money will go towards purchasing food, blankets, medicine and other supplies to aid shelters and potentially save an animal’s life.

Ross Abelow attended the State University of New York. He then attended Brooklyn Law School and graduated in 1989. He was licensed to practice law in New York in 1990. His practice ranges from matrimonial and family law to matters of commercial litigation and entertainment law. After 26 years of service, he was made partner at Abelow & Cassandro, Llp.

In addition to his legal practice, Abelow is active in online communities and makes the most of social media. He uses Facebook and Mashable and writes a blog that offers information and advice on finances and legal issues. Additionally, Abelow frequently submits articles for publication in different sources, such as the blog Crown Point New York.

Abelow’s efforts may mean the difference between life and death for these animals. As the are incapable of defending themselves, Abelow has stepped in to defend them. His goal is twofold. First, he aims to keep animals in shelters and off the streets. Second, he wants the shelters to have adequate supplies to be able to care for the animals. It goes beyond giving them a home on a cold night. More supplies means the shelters can accept more animals, and fewer will be put down.

Ross Abelow is taking an active interest in his campaign, and will gladly answer any questions via the website.
