If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” – Albert Einstein
Founded in 2012, Animals and Laws promotes the respect and protection of all animals all over the world. AAL believes in the inherent value of all animals and that we have a responsibility to protect them from suffering and exploitation. We work together to promote new policies and legislation in over 20 countries. We assist our international partners in regional campaigns to establish uniform standards for the welfare of animals through strong legislation.
Our team includes, policy experts, attorneys, campaigners, scientists, veterinarians, educators, rescue workers, and volunteers, all dedicated and determined to create a better world for both human and non-human animals.
We believe that comprehensive and effective national and international legislation is essential for the protection of animals from exploitation and suffering.
1. National legislation establishes uniform standards for the treatment of animals, making it easier to understand and enforce instead of individual municipal or state/provincial laws and regulations.
2. National legislation is a simple and efficient means of advancing international agreements.
3. National legislation also demonstrates a nation’s commitment to the well-being of animals.
