When Newark, NJ Mayor Cory Booker saw the following message posted to social networking site Twitter last Thursday, he took immediate action:

“Is there anyone in Newark NJ who can stop the torture of a dog? There is a dog who is locked in a small crate on a vacant lot.”

Booker responded by asking where the dog was located, and then said he was on his way. Only a half-hour after he first responded to the initial call for help, Booker reported he was “on the scene” and had located the dog. When asked how the pup was doing, Booker responded “Its raining pretty hard. But looks like dog is in rough shape & in a tiny cage. Figuring out a strategy now.”

What’s more, this isn’t the first time Booker has come to a dog’s rescue. Back in January, the Mayor rescued a dog from the bitter cold, also in response to a tweet.

Of course, these could be at their heart ploys for publicity on the part of a candidate for The U.S. Senate. Still though, we’re not going to argue with saving dogs’ lives – politics or no.
