Responding to Disasters
ALDF provides the legal resources necessary for rescuers and shelters dealing with the overwhelming numbers of sick and abandoned animals struggling for survival during disasters. We also support critical legislation to ensure that animals are never again left to fend for themselves in the case of natural disaster.
