Review from CharityNavigator
September 27, 2012

I READ THE REVIEWER (JOANNE) AND CHECKED OTHER CHARITIES OF THIS TYPE AND FOUND HER NAME ON THEIR REVIEWS. SHE LIES AND MAKES UP REDICULOUS BAD STORIES ABOUT THESE CHARITIES AND IS A REALLY BAD PERSON AS WELL AS A TOTAL MORON. PLEASE DON'T BELIEVE HER AWFUL/NEGATIVE COMMENTS. THIS IS A THOUGHTFUL AND ADMIRABLE CHARITY; I HAVE BEEN DONATING TO THEM FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

There are few groups as effective as the Animal Legal Defense Fund within the animal protection movement. I know when i give to ALDF it is going to directly help animals. I'm thankful such a group exists that is truly making a difference for animals. Thanks to all at ALDF for the work you do to make this a better world for the non-human animals with whom we share this planet-- and for speaking up for those without a voice.

The ALDF is a wonderful organization that has done a lot to help get justice for animals. I really appreciate everything they've done on behalf of Tony the Truck Stop Tiger in Louisiana, as well as all of their efforts to promote the humane treatment and protection of animals.

When I lost my job last year, I knew I could only donate to a precious few causes anymore...I had to choose carefully. Ultimately, I chose ALDF alone. Through my animal rights circles, as well as my own research, I kept noticing how proactive the ALDF was on important issues. It consistantly provided detailed information to its followers which instilled confidence in me that my donations were being put to good use. I will donate to ALDF as long as I can!

The Great!

I support the Animal Legal Defense Fund for the legal impact they have on animal welfare and safety. I enjoy receiving news and updates via facebook and feel more aware of issues that impact animals. I think they are positive force animal welfare and feel positive they are making a difference!

The ALDF inspires me because they are really doing the legwork - setting a standard for the future - by attending trials, engaging in litigation and educating the public about animal welfare. Their recent victory in court, on behalf of Tony the Tiger, was exactly why the ALDF deserves recognition for all their hard work.

The Great!

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

I am inspired to attend more seminars and conferences on how I can become involved in animal welfare legislation.

Create more offices across the country, specifically in the Northeast.

I think the work you do on behalf of the animals is extraordinary! Most who go into law do it for the purpose of making money or as a stepping stone to other things, so for your people to work on behalf of animals who have no money to offer you in return for your services is admirable. I applaud your work on behalf of those who can't speak for themselves. The cruelty that is aimed at animals every day of every hour in this country is unacceptable and I firmly believe you are a leading force in the animal welfare campaign for justice! By changing the laws and prosecuting criminals Americans and those all over the world will come to acknowledge this generations civil rights movement on behalf of animals.

The Great!

ALDF is a great organization that takes a common-sense approach towards contributing in a fairly unique way. Laws at the federal, state and local level are written by harried politicians and enforced by harried prosecutors; ALDF helps create and enforce these laws because nobody else will (everyone is busy with other and "more important" issues). Basic animal cruelty laws that exist today were created by folks like ALDF in the past, so please don't regard them as extremists. Thank you for reading.

The Great!

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

Seeing specific animal cruelty cases being prosecuted almost entirely due to ALDF support. Animal welfare law being introduced to law students.

More feedback...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very "normal" people! Good sense of humor etc.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

significantly reduce incidents of cruelty by preventing and prosecuting specific incidents and help changing laws in different municipalities.

I support the ALDF on both a professional and personal basis. From a professional standpoint, ALDF has consistently and successfully crafted novel theories of law to increase legal protection of animals and enhance the legal protections available to animals under existing laws. And personally, there has never been a time when I called upon ALDF with a question or concern that I did not receive a thorough and reliable response. An excellent example of the forward thinking work of ALDF was in Virginia in 2008. In the wake of the Michael Vick tragedy, the ALDF drafted a bill approved by the Virginia Assembly and signed by the governor adding dog fighting to the list of crimes that can be prosecuted under the Virginia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) laws. ALDF gets the job done.

The Great!

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

Louisiana is my home. While other non profits offered talk concerning the BP Gulf oil spill, ALDF took action. Filing suit against BP alleging violation of the Endgangered Species Act, ALDF brought relief to turtles being burned alive. That's personal.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would make no changes. ALDF uses their funding wisely, maintains a competent staff, is led by a top notch Executive Director who keeps ALDF on mission, and informs supporters of their work through a comprehensive website, newsletter and law journal.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Where other organizations say it can't be done, ALDF says it can be done and they do it and do it successfully.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Top notch. Always thinking of another way to promote animal welfare through the legal system.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save 10 million animals.

Ways to make it better...

Every interaction I have had with ALDF has been educational, rewarding and encouraging.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Obtaining the necessary funding in a slow economy to continue their work. The mission and work of so many non-profits is, frankly, redundant, but ALDF has a specific focus, they stay on mission, and get the job done.

One thing I'd also say is that...

ALDF has proven that the organization is very worthy of the support of anyone who supports animal welfare. ALDF gets results.
