I live in the state where Tony the Tiger is held as a roadside attraction just off of the interstate where he has inhaled gasoline fumes for over a decade. ALDF has fought valiantly for Tony. Even though state legislation failed to pass that would release Tony to a sanctuary, ALDF hasn't given up and is still fighting for Tony and other animals in my state. Even better, they fight for all animals everywhere!

ALDF is out there taking on the law that is now so unfavorable to animal welfare and making it take a look at itself! They're fighting from the inside to make a difference. I know their lawyers hardly earn what they could if they worked for a commercial entity. But they make the sacrifice to figjt for and be the voice of those who cannot be heard. I make a monthly contribution to ALDF because they are making this difference for animals!

We need more organizations that fightto protect not only domestic animals but wild
animals as well. If we do not do more protecting of our pets..of the wild and animals that are cared and loved for food...even though we may eat meat this is not an excuse to
abuse..they must be loved..given fields and companionship
and put to sleep with care. Animal Abuse IS Child
Abuse and we must get the same penalties. This organization truly loves all animals and wants
to protect them. Thank you please continue doing the wonderful work you do.

Animal Legal Defense Fund is an outstanding group who stand up for animals when they are "wronged".
They are probably the only lawyers in the world who represent "innocent" clients....I fully support their work every chance I get.

ALDF are absolutely and utterly amazing. Having both a grass-roots and a strategic focus means that they operate at all levels in their uncompromised focus to save animals from harm. Over time, I've come to know two of their members personally and I can tell you that their focus does not change when they operate in their personal capacity. I highly recommend ALDF - they are not just a great non-profit but an outstanding one and one which is making real, significant and long-lasting changes in our world.
