Winning Justice for Animals

Posted by Stephen Wells, ALDF's Executive Director on August 18, 2009

Join us as we celebrate our 30th anniversary at the Animal Legal Defense Fund!

When a San Francisco attorney named Joyce Tischler put an ad in her local legal newspaper in 1979 calling for attorneys like herself to join forces and put their legal skills into practice to protect animals, she didn’t know it, but the Animal Legal Defense Fund and animal law as a recognized field of practice were born.

Since the very beginning, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has been at the forefront of animal law. There is no other organization that does what we do, and none of it – not a single animal’s life saved – can be done without your support.

Celebrate 30 years of winning the case against cruelty by helping ALDF continue to protect the lives of animals through the legal system. Make a gift to ALDF’s Annual Fund Drive, going on for just a few more days, and take a stand against animal cruelty.

I know you agree with me: when it comes to the abuse, mistreatment, exploitation or neglect of animals, there are no acceptable reasons, no explanations and no justifications. That is why ALDF has, for 30 years, worked successfully to strengthen anti-cruelty laws in our country and make certain those laws are enforced.

We rely on you, on your support, your dedication, your determination to save animals lives, and so I hope that you’ll take just a moment to make a gift to the Animal Legal Defense Fund today. Your donations give us the power to fight for justice for animals.

On behalf of the animals, I thank you for supporting our important work!
