Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) gives legal advice and representation to help animals who would otherwise not receive legal help. Many advocates who try to help animals cannot afford to take legal action when that avenue becomes necessary. ALDF provides that legal assistance. There is so little help for suffering animals in our society. Organizations like ALDF put legal advocacy within the grasp of people who want to help animals and the animals they are trying to help. ALDF has been willing to help us as we try to get the long-suffering Woodland Park Zoo elephants to a more elephant-friendly life out of their life-threatening confined zoo environment. It is obvious to me that this organization is critically needed in the struggle to help suffering animals in our legal system.
