Belly Rubs Worthy of an Award

Posted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on August 5, 2009

Last Saturday, ALDF’s founder, Joyce Tischler, was granted the Excellence in the Advancement of Animal Law Award by the American Bar Association TIPS Animal Law Committee for her exceptional work in the field of animal law.

We caught this video of the special moment, including Joyce giving belly rubs to one of the presenters of the award, Deputy K-9 Dick Butkus, a young pit bull refugee from Toronto, Canada, a result of Toronto’s pit bull ban.

    Joyce is proof that one person with vision and dedication to a worthy cause can change the world. And, just think: each of us has the potential to be that “one person” by fulfilling the good purpose for which we are designed.
