Meet National Justice for Animals Week’s Mascot Teagan

Posted by Stephen Wells, ALDF's Executive Director on February 20, 2012

Today’s daily action for National Justice for Animals Week is: meet the week’s mascot, Teagan!

February 19-25 marks the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s fourth annual National Justice for Animals Week, a yearly event that is dedicated to raising public awareness nationwide about how to report animal abuse and how to work within your community to create stronger laws and assure tough enforcement.

Join us on Facebook and here on ALDF’s blog for a week-long campaign to fight animal abuse and honor animal victims! Take part in daily actions to bring us closer to real justice for animal victims.

Today’s action is: Meet National Justice for Animals Week’s mascot Teagan, a little German shepherd who endured a life of severe neglect and abuse before she was miraculously rescued. Teagan was shot at close range and left for dead in central Mississippi. Upon rescue she was starving and weighed only 15 lbs. Teagan is now a healthy and happy in her forever home after being adopted from Rocky Ridge Refuge by ALDF’s Student Liaison Nicole Pallotta. Read more about Teagan at
