This field covers topics such as ethical livestock care techniques, animal ownership rights, animal abuse and violence laws, and therapy/service dog training programs. SALDF's main goal is to participate in activism for various local non-profits and to conduct and attend educational opportunities for this niche area of environmental law. Please email to sign up and receive emails about events, volunteer opportunities, and meetings. Once we get a group back together, we can have our first meeting and plan for the year.
