My husband and I visited ALDF 5 years ago, and met staff who were intelligent & committed to fighting animal abuse by use of the legal system. We supported them on a wildlife project & saw ALDF gets results. A GREAT org!

I have been a supporter of this organization for many years. They provide a vital service for animal rights: ALDF changes the legal landscape for the benefit of animals. Some organizations help with bringing issues to the public, and some charities are grassroots rescue and response. This organization helps to change the laws to protect animals and prosecute abusers, pushing back against the myriad of animal atrocities.

I have been thoroughly impressed with this organization and their commitment to animal rights and laws. They take on the small and the large with only the welfare of animals in mind. They are one of the leading organizations at the forefront of animal activism and advocacy.

On 7/27/2014, I ran the San Francisco Worth-The-Hurt 52.4 mile double marathon and raised over $10,000 for this group of angels. That's how much I believe in what they do.

I donate to a lot of different non-profits but I donate most to ALDF because they talk the talk and walk the walk. All of their employees are vegan ... they live for their work to help animals from abuse and suffering. There's no organization out there like them ... battling for animals a case at a time in the courtroom.

I'm very satisfied with and grateful for the work ALDF does to bring many of the injustices against animals to light, and then actually take concrete action to potentially prevent future injustices through legislation. I only wish they had unlimited resources and capacity to help meet the seemingly endless needs in the arena of animal protections. Thank you for all that you do, ALDF, please keep it up.

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!

This is such a wonderful organization and should have a stronger presence in the world of animal rights! They do fantastic work and are silent angels!

Thanks to all of you for the work you do in the name of all the animals who do not have a voice!

God Bless!
