Signing for Success

Posted 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!

  1. 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.
  2. 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 to contact your local legislators in a single click and ask for an animal abuser registry where you live.
  3. 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.

    Please save our innocent animals.

    All animals should have the right to be treated with kindness, respect,and love. And that goes for domestic pets, farmed animals, animals in testing labs, and animals on Fur Farms. These are Gods creatures and we need to protect them. We are their caregivers, but sadly, we have turned a blind-eye to their suffering. It all comes down to greed!!
    Please make the compassionate choice to help end their suffering by creating laws to protect them!

    Every animal on this planet has the right to live a peaceful life just as ourselves, and no animal should have to endure anything less than a peaceful life. We need to put a stop to all of the abuse…be it in the farming industry, in the labs, out in the open…such as Alaska, and the middle of our country…Animals should be able to roam without the threat of being killed for sport or otherwise. It sickens me everytime I hear a story of the mis-treatment of animals. Most people abusers start with animals so we need to be more aware and nip it in the bud before anymore of Gods special creatures are harmed any further. Ans all abusers should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If I was in charge of sentencing, I would do to the abuser what he did to the victim.

    why is the only answer to unsolved animal issues torture or killing them or hurting them in some way. We as humans are commissioned by God to take care of these animals and yet abuse goes on. this has to stop

    We have such rich diversity of animal life on this planet.  Every animal has a role to play in the world ecosystem.  It is OUR responsibility, being the most highly evolved of all animals to, preserve this diversity for ourselves and the future generations.  It is one thing to have dinosaurs driven to extinction because of climatic changes before we arrived on the scene.  But it is quite another to be the one single SPECIES to be responsible for driving, not just one or two, but so many creatures to extinction!  Please, we need to stop, right now, before it is too late for these animals and for ourselves.  What kind of legacy are we leaving for our future generation?

    I am totally and utterly astounded, dumfounded and disgusted and any other words that describes the ATROCIOUS and HORRENDOUS treatment to another living creature that mind you has done absolutely nothing wrong to deserve this!! I am soooo ashamed to be associated and part of a human race that is this evil. I have found more and more latley that I have more respect for animals than I do for humans.

    Humans are destroying everything that is good in this world; the environment, other humans and especially animals. How can you look into the eyes of these living, breathing, feeling creatures and inflict so much harm and pain? Animals feel pain just like we do. They look up to US humans for help not to be tortured by us. My heart breaks knowing that this type of treatment is being inflicted upon them, it’s almost like it’s being done to me.

    These wonderful creatures have every right to be here as much as we do. They should be treated with kindness and respect, like how we want to be treated. We need them to survive! We are their voices, we need to stand up for them and do what is right for them. Humans need to show compassion, put their selfishness and greediness aside and put an end to animal cruelty!
