The Veterinary Medical Association of New York City recently named Robert Reisman, DVM, Veterinarian of the Year for his work on behalf of cat and dog cruelty cases at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Reisman, medical coordinator of animal cruelty cases at the ASPCA Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital, was also recognized for his service as president of the association in 2007 and as veterinary editor of the association’s newsletter from 2001 to the present.

“Addressing and eradicating animal cruelty is one of our key goals as an organization,” said Ed Sayres, ASPCA president and chief executive officer. “I am very proud of Dr. Reisman’s continued excellence in the management and caretaking of cases of abuse and neglect that, unfortunately, pass through our doors every day.”

Congratulations Dr. Reeisman, an honor I believe very justly awarded. To see what you see so often, and to continue with determined effort to stop the cruelty takes true compassion and courage. You are definitely a hero to the animals - and to the people who love them. Thank you so very much.
