Signing for SuccessPosted by Stephen Wells, ALDF's Executive Director on February 24, 2011
Today’s daily action for National Justice for Animals Week is: sign petitions and speak out to lawmakers.
You can help fight animal abuse and honor animal victims from your own desk. Join the hundreds of thousands across the nation who have already taken action online to support critical ALDF campaigns, which are strategically designed to have the maximum impact for animals. A better world for animals is a click away!
- If you haven’t yet joined the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have signed the Animal Bill of Rights–take action now! Let Congress and all of our elected officials know that the law should protect the basic needs of all animals–and should provide justice for those who are abused and exploited.
- Communities have good reason to be concerned about the whereabouts of animal abusers. In story after heartbreaking story, abusers repeat their violent crimes against helpless animals, and often go on to victimize people as well. Keep your animals and your families safe. Visit ExposeAnimalAbusers.org to contact your local legislators in a single click and ask for an animal abuser registry where you live.
- Currently, most states have no mandatory requirements keeping those who are convicted of animal abuse crimes away from animals following their convictions. ALDF’s model “First Strike and You’re Out” law will help in the fight against animal neglect and cruelty by keeping offenders away from potential new animal victims and will also help reduce the huge economic toll which repeat offenders impose on their communities. Contact your state legislators today and ask them to support a "First Strike and You’re Out" law for those who are convicted of animal neglect or cruelty.
