your prosecutor or other local law enforcement official taken a strong
stand against animal cruelty? Let us know! Submit your nominations for
who should be honored during next year’s National Justice for Animals
From insisting on long probations requiring that animal
abusers not be allowed to own or cohabitate with animals, to creating
an Animal Cruelty Prosecution program within the Los Angeles County
District Attorney’s office, the attorneys honored during 2009’s National Justice for Animals Week
have gone above and beyond to give real teeth to animal protection
laws. Have there been any cases in your community where a prosecutor
got real justice for animal victims of crime? Nominations for next
year’s National Justice for Animals Week honorees are now open!
- Your submission need not be formal, but there is some basic information we’ll need:
- the name of the person you’re nominating and his or her title;
- your nominee’s location (city/county and state) and, if you have it, contact information;
- a brief summary or example of the work they’ve done to fight animal cruelty and honor animal victims;
your nominee has worked on a specific animal cruelty case you’d like to
note, please include the name of the case, details about the case, the
case number, and the disposition (outcome) of the case. Feel free to
include links to news coverage of any relevant cruelty cases.
