Student Animal Legal Defense Fund


The Student Animal Legal Defense Fund strives to fill a void in the legal profession regarding animals. SALDF does not oppose the proper and respectful use of animals, but rather helps defend and protect innocent animals against abuse, misuse, and violations of state and federal laws and regulations. SALDF primarily focuses on legal pro bono work and is affiliated only with the National Animal Legal Defense Fund.
