Animal Legal Defense Fund: 2017 Year in Review
The new year is almost here, and it’s time to take stock of all the legal advances we’ve made together for animals in 2017. Victories defeating dangerous Ag-Gag legislation, increasing the pressure on the U.S. Department of Agriculture to uphold the Animal Welfare Act, and assisting police and district attorneys in nearly 100 animal cruelty cases across the country to hold animal abusers accountable are just a few of our accomplishments this year!
Watch the new video from our Executive Director Stephen Wells which highlights many of the victories we’ve accomplished together in 2017.
