Action Alerts

Every day, ALDF attorneys work to keep animal abusers off the streets and prevent them from ever harming another victim. Letters, emails, and phone calls from concerned members of the public often make the crucial difference for animals in cases of criminal animal cruelty and proposed legislation. Action Alerts provide urgent updates on cruelty cases and legislation around the country, and what you can do to help win justice for animals.
