Visit or Volunteer at an Animal Sanctuary
Help local animals and educate chapter members by volunteering at a farmed animal sanctuary or humane society. You can pair this visit with a discussion about the shockingly inadequate legal protections for farmed animals or puppy mills and the millions of companion animals killed in shelters every year.
Meet regularly to discuss animal law articles or books. If you are looking for suggestions, we have a list of animal law books and periodicals. We also have course guides with suggested readings for farmed animal law, companion animal law, and wildlife law, which you can use to help structure your group. Contact us to request the course guides.
