This year, Shekarchi and Serpa were honored for the tireless advocacy for animals in the state legislature. The awards were presented Friday as the organization celebrated its 80th year during its annual Diamonds in the Ruff cocktail party at the Towers in Narragansett.

    “This award is tremendous honor,” said Leader Shekarchi, a long-time animal advocate whose sponsored legislation has included the creation of an animal abuser registry, banning the sale of shark fins and giving the RISPCA the right to seize dogs trained to fight. “I am humbled and gratified that my efforts to protect animals have been recognized by Animal Rescue Rhode Island, which has done so much for animals for the past 80 years.”
