Support the Animal Legal Defense Fund

Since 1979, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has been the leader in the fight to win animals the legal protection they so desperately need—and deserve.

Your generous support is vital to our continued success.

ALDF is proud to be a four-star Charity Navigator rated nonprofit, Platinum-level GuideStar Exchange participant, a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity, and have been awarded the Independent Charities Seal of Excellence, ensuring that we meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.

ALDF is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization and relies almost entirely on individual, tax-deductible contributions from caring members and donors like you. Because more than 80% of ALDF’s annual budget goes directly to our program work, your donation will go to the best possible use to win the case against animal cruelty.

Here are some of the many ways you can contribute to ALDF:
