ALDF is truly on the cutting edge of animal protection litigation. The organization's dedicated team devises creative and effective strategies to advance protections for animals, and doesn't shy away from going after the industry giants that perpetrate some of the worst animal abuse.

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.

I support ALDF because as a former Chairperson of the Fort Worth Animal Shelter Advisory Committee, I have seen firsthand the atrocities committed against animals in our city. We need groups like ALDF to fight and take action on behalf of animals everywhere.

I have been writing a pet column in newspapers for 35 years and The Animal Legal Defense Fund is the most important organization for the present and the future. We must have animal advocates in every town, city and state. Humane Officers are the first source to help animals on the scene immediately, but then comes the court case. The precedents set in court are going to help animals in the future and will send a messages to those who are cruel or negligent, that the people of The United States value other species . Criminals will be held accountable.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would request television and billboard ads.

The ALDF helps bring justice to those who abuse, torture, or kill animals. We as a society need to send a clear message that abuse in any form will not be tolerated.

the aldf is a joke, no better than the h$u$. They should try to focus on the animals in need, not just just big publicity cases.

Clerking with ALDF, I got to see first-hand how passionate and amazing this group of people of is. Love for animals comes through in all of their actions and words.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with and for them, being a member, and closely following their blog.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the number of members!
