Student Animal Legal Defense Fund
The SALDF is a student chapter that is affiliated with the Animal Legal Defense Fund and shares its mission to protect the lives of animals through the legal system. Founded in 1979 by attorneys active in shaping the emerging field of animal law, ALDF has blazed the trail for stronger enforcement of anti-cruelty laws and more humane treatment of animals.
The primary goals of our student chapter are to raise funds and further support the local Bristol Animal Shelter. To accomplish these goals, we hope to host a fundraiser in the fall and are working on the possibility of hosting a charity fashion show in the spring, the proceeds of which go directly to the animal shelter.
