I've donated to this organization for many years and they do wonderful work. I'm happy with their rating on Charity Navigator and happy to see that the CEO's pay is within reason. They hold animal abusers accountable for their actions and work on behalf of animals to bring those who would harm the innocent to justice. So grateful for their work!

ALDF takes up everyday causes on behalf of suffering animals, from companion pets to animals in laboratories. They do a fantastic job representing the best interests of animals everywhere.

This charity fights for those who cannot fight for themselves - animals. They use their legal expertise to fight for animals like Tony the Truck Stop tiger, whose owner refuses to obey the law and give him to an accredited sanctuary where he could have much more room, better food, better health, and enrichment. They are reasonable, intelligent, and kind, even as they stubbornly fight. This is an animal charity you can contribute to with confidence.

We hear horror stories everyday about animals being abused, tortured, slaughtered, starved, and we weep and try to help as best we can as donors. It is the ALDF, though, that goes after the perpetrators of these atrocities and this group is the only legal group i know that can fight for our animals in court and know the legislation governing the crime. I hope it grows and grows. I have a dear friend, a litigation attorney, who will retire in two years and will seek to join this group of fighters for those who have no voice. ALDF is in my modest will along with a few other animal groups. Think about supporting it now and including it in your will.

There are many great non-profits out there helping animals. I think ALDF is a very strong, commendable, organization that I am proud to support. The battle to prevent, protect from, and punish cruelty to animals is widespread, but the spearhead is in the courts. Without strong laws it doesn't matter how wrong something is, abusers get off with little or no punishment and continue their abuse. Without dedicated lawyers to go to bat for animals, and for people fighting to defend an animal, we can make very little progress. The ALDF is on the front lines of pursuing convictions for animal cruelty. Thank you all so much for all your work and dedication. And thanks to all animal lovers out there for standing up for the animals that are so often thrown out and disregarded.

This is a wonderful charity. They do amazing work and fight tirelessly for the rights of non-human animals that suffer under the human hand. A truly noble organization. The morals of man can be directly gauged by how man treats non-human animals.

Other non-profit animal organizations seem to place a bucket underneath a leaking faucet of animal problems; whereas, the ALDF works to fix the leak. The ALDF is a great organization and will be my only charity for life.

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.
