National Justice for Animals Week 2014
February 16-22 is ALDF’s sixth 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.
Today’s action is: Watch actress and animal advocate Charlotte Ross talk about why she supports National Justice for Animals Week.
Today’s action is: Make news for animals!
Don’t just read the news—make it! If you don’t think the issue of animal abuse is getting enough coverage in your local paper, or if you want to applaud a particular reporter for going in-depth to cover a case of animal cruelty, a letter to the editor is a great way to take action for animals.
Today’s action is: Download ALDF Crime Tips!
Fight cruelty with your phone! ALDF Crime Tips is a first-of-its-kind app designed to help you help animals—by letting you report abuse and neglect of animals in your community right from your smartphone.
The Houston Humane Society and the Vermont Humane Federation are two supporters of ALDF Crime Tips. If you are a shelter, rescue group, or animal protection organization and interested in promoting Crime Tips, we encourage you to send an email to your volunteers, and share this page on your social media channels, explaining the benefits of the Crime Tips app in fighting animal cruelty.
Today’s action is: Help ALDF Help Animals.
Animal victims of abuse cannot speak for themselves—so concerned citizens and our legal system must speak up for them. You can help animals every month of the year by making a monthly donation to the Animal Legal Defense Fund. Learn more about becoming a Partner in Protection.
Today’s daily action for National Justice for Animals Week is: Fight animal abuse from your home computer.
