February 18-24 is ALDF’s fifth annual National Justice for Animals Week. Follow ALDF all week and take action each day. Join us in fighting animal abuse and honoring animal victims! To participate, connect with ALDF:
Animals can’t speak for themselves–even when they are horribly abused. It is our duty to be their voice and make sure cases involving animal victims get heard in the courts. ALDF created National Justice for Animals Week for this very reason.
Every year we dedicate one week to raising awareness about how to report cases of animal abuse, and how to work locally to strengthen animal protection laws and enforcement.
Take Action Everyday
You might not be able to take action for animals every day of the year–but you can do it for one week. Check back each day and we will post a new action to take. Join thousands of other people across the country this National Justice for Animals Week, and be a voice for animals.
Take Action Each Day This Week! Each day during National Justice for Animals Week, ALDF will post an action that you can take part in to bring us closer to real justice for animal victims. Here are the actions so far!
