Despite a storied history of being litigated, regulated, and protected under the law, wildlife is all too often overlooked in the context of animal cruelty statutes. Join ALDF Senior Staff Attorney David B. Rosengard to explore why applying animal cruelty law to wildlife matters – and the unique challenges that exist at this intersection of resource law, environmental law, and criminal law.
Webinars in this Series with the ALDF include:
- Sept 29: The Status of Animals in Criminal Animal Cruelty Cases
- Oct 29: Understanding Wildlife Animal Cruelty (this webinar)
The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
Founded in 1979, the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s mission is to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system. The Animal Legal Defense Fund accomplishes this mission by filing high-impact lawsuits to protect animals from harm, providing free legal assistance and training to prosecutors to assure that animal abusers are held accountable for their crimes, supporting tough animal protection legislation and fighting legislation harmful to animals, and providing resources and opportunities to law students and professionals to advance the emerging field of animal law.
