Actress Charlotte Ross Speaks Up for Animals during National Justice for Animals Week

Posted by Jennifer Molidor, ALDF Staff Writer on February 16, 2014

This week, ALDF hosts National Justice for Animals Week, Feb 16-22—a tribute to the human heroes who protect animals, and the animal victims of cruelty. Actress Charlotte Ross, star of popular television shows like Glee and NYPD Blue, joins ALDF’s campaign as spokesperson. “As a detective on NYPD Blue, I fought for justice for victims of heinous crimes,” says Charlotte. “But you don’t need to be an officer of the law to stop abusers in their tracks. Every single one of us can join the fight to stop animal cruelty in our own communities.”

Watch our special message from Charlotte Ross below:

“ALDF’s National Justice for Animals Week gives each of us the tools to stop animal abuse, and urges law enforcement, prosecutors, and lawmakers to protect our animals and communities from abusers,” Charlotte explains.

National Justice for Animals Week provides a way for all of us to take action for animals. From ALDF action alerts, adoption campaigns, spreading the message with social media, signing the Animal Bill of Rights, to downloading ALDF’s Crime Tips app—where you can report animal cruelty to law enforcement with just a few clicks on your smartphone—ALDF’s National Justice for Animals Week makes it easy for you to speak up for animals.

“That’s why I’ve teamed up with the Animal Legal Defense Fund to celebrate National Justice for Animals Week,” Charlotte explains. “There are so many ways that you can help stop cruelty. Please join us at the Animal Legal Defense Fund in fighting animal cruelty and honoring animal victims.”

    Animals have no way to defind themselves from abuse. They have no voice. Please help support laws being made to protect animals from horrific, uneccessary acts of abuse and torture made on these fellow habitats and God created creatures. Lets take a step towards being humane!
