Robert Fisk, Jr. founds Maine Friends of Animals

YouTube video: Robert Fisk Jr. legislative experience becomes the genesis in forming MFOA

 

Robert Fisk, Jr. of Falmouth, ME was elected to the legislature in 1997; and as a freshman he sponsored a successful endangered species bill for the Maine Audubon Society. His key issues as a legislator were the envirnoment, small business and campaign / government reform. But given his background in animal protection, through osmosis or default, he became the legsilative go-to-guy for most legislation affecting animals. Realizing animal welfare had no cohesive vechicle in passing legislation in Augusta, Fisk filled the void by establishing the non-profit Maine Friends of Animals to give Maine animals a voice.
