Help ALDF Keep Animals Out of the Hands of Horse Abusers!

Posted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on April 14, 2009

As an animal advocate, no doubt you agree, no one has the right to abuse, exploit or neglect animals. That’s why the Animal Legal Defense Fund is taking Michael, Judy, and Gayle Keating to court for severely neglecting eight horses whom they starved – in one case, literally to death – and deprived of all veterinary care. ALDF is heading back to court on May 18th, and we need your support!

We are happy to report that all of the surviving horses are recovering and safe, but we need your help to ensure that no other horses ever suffer at the hands of these abusers.

Help send our team of animal law experts to North Carolina to finish this fight and ensure that the Keatings are not given the chance to abuse any other animals – ever again. Your donation will help us ensure that the suffering of River, Diva, Twister, Shadow, Lacy, Groucho and Raven – and of Rain, who died of starvation before she could be rescued – was not in vain.

Watch this video of Lacy less than two months after the rescue. Then, please, make a donation of whatever you can afford to help ensure that these horse abusers are never given the chance to harm another animal again.
