Animal Rights Activist from Rochester, New York Needs Urgent Help

 

The following story was published on Examiner.com by Denise Carey-Costa and is reposted here with the author’s permission.Eddie Cintron

Every now and then we meet people who keep giving to others, caring about other people and animals, putting others’ well-being ahead of their own. And one day they suddenly fall in need of help. That is when others need to be present for them. Such is the case of my animal rights advocate friend Eddie Cintron of Rochester, New York.

Founder of the K9 Partners of Monroe County, Eddie has worked tirelessly for saving dogs from lethal shootings at the hands of cops. His work led to the first ever training on dealing with dogs non-lethally for police officers at Monroe County Sherriff’s Office of New York. This is a breakthrough for both law enforcement and dog owners since shootings of innocent dogs in the line of duty has been infamously in news quite often.

Unfortunately Eddie has lost his job of ten years and is struggling now to pay his rent and expenses for the next month. Due to physical limitations, he cannot work at the moment and is likely to apply for disability.

A fundraiser has been launched for helping Eddie Cintron get through this difficult time when he is unable to work on account of spinal injury and fears losing his dog in case he loses his accommodation. For all the great work that Eddie has done for our canine friends, it’s time now to help this wonderful fellow with all that we can. Please donate to the fundraiser at this link :https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/5fgL7?utm_campaign=new-campaign&utm_medium=email&utm_source=01-2014.

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
