Animal Defenders International US
May 11, 2013

Animal Defenders International works worldwide to not only rescue animals but to stop the abuse of them. Their efforts to ban the use of animals in circuses in many countries have been very successful. Animals in horrific situations have been rescued and placed in sanctuaries; they no longer will be beaten, abused and forced to perform. I am very appreciative of their tremendous support to public grassroots campaigns - such as to those of us advocating against the use of animals in the circus here in the U.S. ADI is a well-respected organization who truly are dedicated to ending the abuse, exploitation, and suffering of animals in all situations, whether it be the circus, animal testing, farm animals, etc. and to protect animals in the wild as well. I hope others who may not be familiar with their work will take the time to research their website and support ADI.

ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
April 6, 2013

One of the most important ways to make a strong impact on behalf of animals and their welfare is through the legal system. The Animal Legal Defense Fund is an extraordinary organization who fight for the rights of animals. ALDF is dedicated to bringing justice to animals by ensuring laws to protect them are enforced, and those who exploit and abuse animals are held accountable for their actions. We have a responsibility to protect those who truly have no voice – animals are innocent beings who deserve our advocacy. I am very appreciative for the ALDF and the tremendous work they do.

ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
November 15, 2012

I have always loved The Animal Legal Defense Fund’s mantra “"We May Be The Only Lawyers On Earth Whose Clients Are All Innocent." It is so important to be a voice for those who have none – our animal friends who truly are innocent – and ALDF has proven repeatedly their commitment and dedication to helping animals in all situations whether it be a bear named Ben in a roadside zoo, a tiger named Tony at a Louisiana truck stop, the horrific puppy mill trade, sickening foie gras industry and countless other issues. Their work is critical to the welfare and lives of animals and I am thankful for this wonderful organization.

THE WILDCAT SANCTUARY
January 8, 2012

The WildCat Sanctuary: “They will never know freedom, Can they at least know compassion?“ This sanctuary not only provides compassion, but also respect and exemplary care for the cats in their charge. The cats live in spacious natural habitats and receive enrichment, expert medical care and a proper diet. TWS also works to educate the public about the serious issue of privately owned big cats in the United States and why these magnificent cats are deadly animals to have as pets. As a true sanctuary, TWS does not buy, breed, sell or exhibit animals. TWS is closed to the public, giving the cats additional privacy. You can clearly see these cats are well taken care of by the dedicated staff of TWS and are happy and healthy.

ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
August 6, 2011

The Animal Legal Defense Fund is an important organization because they defend the rights of those who are truly innocent and have no voice. They have championed for many different animal welfare issues and one that I am truly indebted to them for is that of Tony The Truck Stop Tiger. ALDF's commitment and dedicated efforts led to a victory in obtaining a permanent injunction barring the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries from issuing any further permits to Tony's owner. ALDF continues to advocate on behalf of Tony for his early release. All animals deserve our respect and protection; the vital work of The Animal Legal Defense Fund ensures that animals and their rights will be defended, and laws to protect them will be enforced.

The Great!

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

their tremendous efforts in the Tony The Truck Stop Tiger case.

Ways to make it better...

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

hope the great work they do for animals becomes more recognized and known worldwide.
