ACLA Canada's mandate is to undertake the following activities as they relate to animal cruelty/protection legislation and its enforcement:

  • write, administer, and deliver petitions to courts and government leaders

  • organize rallies, events and other action campaigns

  • provide links to the latest news stories regarding animal cruelty cases

It is a quality of revolutions not to go by old lines or old laws, but to break up both and make new ones.    

                         ~ Abraham Lincoln

The mission of Animal Cruelty Legislation Advocates Canada is to advocate for animals with the public, the criminal justice system, and all levels of Canadian government, with the express goal of improving the lives and safety of animals and, by extension, people and communities, in Canada and abroad.
