Animal Legal Defense Fund  Animal lawyers. Fighting to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals.

If it's too cold for you, it's too cold for her. With winter—and low temperatures—upon us, it’s important to make sure companion animals are safe and warm. Dogs, cats and other companion animals are not equipped to handle the cold. Every year, animals freeze to death. If you see an animal in distress, call 911. Find other winter safety tips at aldf.org/cold (link in bio).

#Repost from @Shy38inc - He's #notproperty, he's Barney! Most of us understand intuitively that dogs and cats are not pieces of property, they're members of the family. But farmed animals often don't receive that same understanding. There’s an estimated 9 billion land animals raised and killed for food every year in the United States. Many of these animals are subjected to near-unimaginable cruelty — much of which is perfectly legal, under current law. Thank you to Barney for helping us make the connection that all animals deserve our empathy and respect!

Tippy-Toes, who is being fostered by ALDF's Associate Director of Communications Elizabeth, is getting bigger every day! She's also getting into the holiday spirit. We don't blame her. 🎉🐱

BREAKING - Today the Animal Legal Defense Fund, as part of a coalition of public interest groups, filed a lawsuit in Kansas challenging the constitutionality of the state’s Ag-Gag law, which makes it a crime to document animal cruelty at factory farms and slaughterhouses. Enacted nearly 30 years ago, the Kansas Ag-Gag law is the oldest in the United States. Kansas is a major producer of cows, pigs, and other animals raised for food. Virtually all of these animals are raised in inhumane factory farms where animals undergo routine mutilations, intensive confinement, and -- ultimately -- cruel slaughter. The law has successfully prevented whistleblowers from investigating the cruel conditions that millions of animals endure. We're fighting back against Ag-Gag laws across the country - and winning.

#Repost from @kissfroma_rosie - Thank you to Rosie for sharing her family's story! Last week, Animal Legal Defense Fund Executive Director Stephen Wells had the honor of meeting Rosie at @petconofficial. Rosie lost her sister, Lola, under the care of a negligent dog walker. Now she's fighting to change the way the law views animals. To learn more about Rosie's story, go to @kissfroma_rosie. Animals are #notproperty.

We love turkeys everywhere, except on our plates. That's why we fight for turkeys and all animals in courtrooms and legislatures across the country. But we could not do our work without you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Happy Thanksgiving!
