Lara Trump will help lead an animal rights crusade Thursday with fellow activists pushing to put a stop to greyhound racing in Florida.
President Trump’s daughter-in-law is set to make a special guest appearance with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi for the fundraiser, ‘Protect Dogs – Yes on 13,’ that will take place in Greenwich, Connecticut.
The fundraiser is sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States and GREY2K USA, a non-profit organization that promotes the protection of greyhound laws.
The 35-year-old mother-of-one has played an active role in several other animal rights campaigns – most notably pets for vets, which couples mentally and physically ill veterans and homeless pets.
