Our Purpose



The Animal Defense Partnership is an independent advocacy and consulting non-profit that provides the highest quality pro bono legal and related capacity-building services to animal protection organizations. 

In our animal charity collaborations, we take on aspects of the legal and operational burdens that encumber so many animal protection non-profits. Our goal in supporting the immensely important work of these remarkable front-line organizations is to enable them to maximize the time and resources they can devote "in the field" to protecting animals from suffering and abuse.

ADP’s goal as a 501(c)(3) non-profit is to contribute our legal and professional training and experience to the greatest extent and best of our ability in the collective effort to protect animals from cruelty and suffering in all forms and wherever occurring.
