It`s painful to think about, but it`s important to know: you could be entitled to compensation if someone injures or kills members of your animal family. Do you have a special person or animal in your life? Donate to the Animal Legal Defense Fund in honor of this person. It`s a thoughtful way to honor a special service animal or let someone know that you care about them and animals. When you honor someone with your gift, we send them a message informing them of your donation. Your donation to the Animal Legal Defense Fund will support our fight in Washington State to give abused animals a legal voice – supporting all our work on behalf of animals that can`t speak for themselves. You stopped at the local pet store on your way home from work to fetch food for your cat. Your children begged to visit a store that offered puppies for sale until you gave in. But when you enter, you are shocked by what you find: puppies that seem too young to be separated from their mother, that seem sick and poorly cared for. Other animals for sale are clearly sick. To maximize the impact of our supporters` donations, Animal Legal Defense Fund staff focus their resources on programs to protect lives and promote the interests of animals through the legal system. Please read the following to find the fastest way to get the information or support you are looking for.

The person who was injured – or the person whose animals were injured – can file a civil lawsuit against you for financial compensation. You trust your veterinarian to diagnose, treat and care for your animal family members.
But what if you suspect your vet made a mistake – and the mistake hurt your pet? This tragic story is all too common: someone buys a puppy from a breeder or pet store only to find that their new furry family member is very sick, often fatal. If this happens to you, your heart won`t improve so easily. However, you can have a remedy for the breeder or pet store. It`s not uncommon for families to be told to choose between two bad options: either get rid of their pets or lose their shelter. There are resources to solve problems with homeowners, property management, and homeowners` associations. It can be disturbing – and heartbreaking – to witness an act of cruelty to animals. Whether it`s an act of acute abuse or chronic neglect, find out what you can do if you witness animal cruelty. The Animal Legal Defense Fund works at the federal, state, and local levels to advance important legislation. We advocate laws that promote or protect the lives and interests of animals, and we oppose laws that would harm animal welfare. You can be sued if your dog bites a person or attacks another animal. However, in most cases, while it is beneficial, there is no need to find a lawyer who specializes specifically in animal law.
The Internet and social media are a reflection of our society – the good, the bad and the ugly. Too often, the Animal Legal Defense Fund receives calls and emails from people who have come across digital content containing images depicting obvious acts of animal cruelty and asking us what to do with the evidence they discover. Please note that your contact with us is not confidential or privileged and does not establish a legal relationship with the Animal Legal Defense Fund or any member of our legal staff. Please understand that ALDF does not represent individuals in private lawsuits and we are not authorized to provide legal advice for your personal situation. It can be heartbreaking to see a neighbor`s pet suffer in a situation of neglect. Depending on the situation, there are different ways to help the animal or animals involved. Every donation donated today will be doubled to $125,000 to help suffering animals end animal cruelty and get justice for innocent victims of animal cruelty. So please don`t miss this opportunity to show an innocent animal the kindness and love it has been waiting for. Donate now to double your gift! For more than 40 years, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has worked tirelessly to end cruelty and injustice to animals.

Your tax-deductible donation today helps fight animal cruelty and save the lives of innocent animals.
Animal law is a relatively new and growing specialty in the field of law, and more and more lawyers are specializing in cases involving animals. The Animal Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (our EIN number is 94-2681680) committed to better legal protection of animals. We rely almost exclusively on tax-deductible individual contributions from members and benevolent donors like you. Our animal companions are a family. So it`s no wonder that when we separate from our spouses or leave our family home, disputes can arise over who is allowed to keep the animals.
