What does AJLA do?

The Animal Justice League of America will end animal abuse through REAL accountability.  We will give a voice to the voiceless and shine a bright light on the animal abusers and the law enforcement process.  We work with local shelters, veterinarians, law enforcement, and the public to help animals in need, provide the proper care, and hold the abusers accountable for mistreatment.  AJLA also works diligently to help shelters and rescues work towards becoming no-kill and becoming a thriving non-profit organization.

How long does the “justice” process take for each case?  

Justice is coming, but justice takes longer than any of us would like.  We believe it is more important for things to be done right instead of fast.  We will bright justice as fast as possible, but we will not sacrifice our long term success for short term gain.  AJLA is committed to do everything legally and morally possible to end animal abuse through REAL accountability.  We are working on cases nationwide, all at the same time.  We are committed to following through in each and every case we accept into our system.  Although we would like to accept every case that is submitted we have a set of checks and balanced we put submitted cases through.  We are growing very quickly and intent do significantly scale up very soon.  As we grow it is important for us to remain flexible so we can keep investigating as many cases as possible.  Although we would like to keep our schedules set in stone, it is important to not be rigid as we continue to gain momentum.  Sometimes we will have to move or change the order of cases to improve the overall outcome for all our cases.  We are committed to following through on each and every case we accept.  Justice is coming.  We appreciate your understanding and patience.   

Where are you located?

The Animal Justice League of America was founded in Kansas City, Missouri; However, we are a nationwide non-profit organization. 

Who started AJLA?  

Shane Rudman and his family had the idea about creating the Animal Justice League of America after they took in Lucky the Pitbull.  The movement did not fully take off until the Rudman’s began fostering Laggie, which was when they said enough was enough.  AJLA was officially founded!  Read more about Laggie’s story here and Lucky’s story here.

Why should I help? 

Animal abuse happens every day nationwide.  It is a major problem that is causing millions of animals to be hurt or injured, usually by people who will go on to hurt their significant others and children. Putting an end to animal abuse takes a village. Together, we can make a change and live in a country where animal abuse is no longer brushed under the rug.
