This Is Our Mission
We are using the tools of the legal system and the court of public opinion to:
- Fight to give SoCal animal guardians (aka “animal owners”) the basic legal
and constitutional rights they're entitled to but are often denied;
Update SoCal's antiquated animal control laws to reflect today's moral and social values.
While current laws are in place, insist that Animal Control personnel enforce them fairly and properly.
- Inform people of their legal rights, and instruct them on how to protect themselves and their animals
if the sudden need arises.
This Is What We Do
EMPOWER THOSE WHO LOVE THEIR ANIMALS. If you are like most people,
you are unaware of your legal rights as an animal guardian (or, as some say, “owner”). We see many people, uninformed of their rights, being intimidated by the animal control system and feeling fear, confusion, and despair. Our main mission is to challenge current, but outdated, local laws to hold Animal Services accountable for fair and reasonable standards; AND to change the laws to better protect people's property rights (since, for now, animals are considered property).

"DANGEROUS DOG" CASES. We intervene with local Animal Service
Departments to save family animals from being impounded or killed. [more]
DOG SHOOTINGS. Through law suits and officer training,
we fight to put an end to needless dog shootings by police. [more]
RESCUE GROUP SUPPORT. We help very small rescues,
whose funds are better spent on animals than on legal issues. [more]
