Stand With Us to Defend AnimalsPosted by Stephen Wells, ALDF's Executive Director on August 2, 2011
As a supporter of the Animal Legal Defense Fund — the law firm for the animals — you know that our team of trained lawyers and animal protection experts work tirelessly — nationwide — to ensure that animal abusers are brought to justice.
Abusers like Thomas Martin Nebus, who, in July, was found guilty of felony animal cruelty for stabbing his neighbor’s dog Rosco at least a dozen times. Prosecuted by ALDF Attorney Geoff Fleck serving in his dual capacity as an Assistant State Attorney, Nebus now sits behind bars in a Florida jail cell while awaiting his sentencing date later this month.
No animal deserves a vicious, painful death at the hands of a violent abuser. At ALDF, it’s our job to make sure that animal abusers are brought to justice. That means that laws intended to protect animals must be enforced. And innocent animals who cannot speak for themselves must receive the protection they deserve.
There is no other organization that does what we do and none of it can be done without your support. Join us today to win animals the legal protection they so desperately deserve — and to ensure abusers like Thomas Martin Nebus don’t get off with a slap on the wrist.
Thank you for standing with us to defend animals.
