Double Your Impact For Animal ProtectionPosted by Joyce Tischler, ALDF's Founder and General Counsel on October 15, 2008
The horror is finally over. This summer, the Animal Legal Defense Fund helped rescue hundreds of dogs and cats, who for years were hoarded, abused, and neglected at All Creatures Great and Small "shelter" in Henderson, North Carolina.
Help us continue saving animals’ lives and double the impact of your support for animal protection through the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s 2008 Matching Gift Challenge! Between now and November 1, every contribution ALDF receives up to $30,000 will be matched, dollar-for-dollar.
Your gift will help us to continue to systematically fight animal abuse and neglect for the animals who are so desperately in need of our protection.
After months of relentless advocacy and with the threat of an ALDF lawsuit, All Creatures Great and Small was finally shut down earlier this year and will be demolished. Hundreds of dogs and cats have been freed from the filthy "shelter" that once held them thanks to ALDF’s unique expertise and exceptional team of attorneys.
Your support enables us to put all of our legal muscle into the fight to help animals like the dogs and cats abused at All Creatures Great and Small. With additional resources, we can help even more animals – and that’s what makes this matching gift opportunity so exciting.
