Animal activist Laura Guttridge received The Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2007 by the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County. This award recognized Laura for her dedication to the protection of animals. Laura Guttridge was a top signature gather in 2002, collecting over 5,000 signatures that helped lead to the successful banning of the cruel confinement of pigs on factory farms in Florida. In the early 1990’s Laura started an animal rights organization called “Marion County Voices For Animals” located in Central Florida. MCVA successfully urged the local animal pound to stop using the out dated decompression chamber to kill un-wanted animals, and switch to the more humane lethal injection.

“Gypsy The Christmas Cat” – A holiday Tale Written By Activist Laura Guttridge

In “Gypsy the Christmas Cat” a simple act of kindness marks the beginning of Gypsy’s journey gently teaching children about compassion, patience, and trust along the way. Children adore the story of the homeless cat Gypsy, and the young girl who teaches her how to love, and trust.

“Gypsy the Christmas Cat provides a delightful message to children that all animals deserve a loving home, and protection. Children have an instinctive desire to help animals, and this story highlights the message of compassion.” -Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO of the Humane Society Of The United States.
