The Animal Legal Defense Fund provides valuable information videos and documentaries. They hope to share positive changes and resources to better the community. The lives of animals are just as precious as our own. Fortunately, the ALDF has given us a space where we can learn about keeping our animals safe. Throughout the week, we may learn:

  • the criminal cruelty laws
  • what we can accomplish if we work together to create safety laws
  • How to prevent criminal cruelty
  • The justice for animals against their abusers 
  • Share the stories of the victims
  • …Plus so much more 

To begin the National Justice for Animals Week, the Animal Legal Defense Fund will hold an event with two important people in the justice system. The event will be on February 21st on the ALDF website.
