Our Mission

There are animal charities, sanctuaries and rescues doing extraordinary work to change the way society treats and views animals. But many of them—particularly small and mid-sized nonprofits—are limited in the resources they can devote to their mission due to the day-to-day financial and operational demands all charities face. ADP works to unburden its clients where possible from these stressors, with the goal of freeing up resources that they can put to best use in their advocacy efforts directly on behalf of animals.

ADP’s mission is to contribute our legal and professional training and experience to the greatest extent and best of our ability to the growing effort to protect animals from cruelty and suffering in all forms and wherever occurring.
