ADLA has a long history of working to protect Arizona's animals abused by industries including agribusiness, entertainment such as circuses and greyhound racing, and animal testing facilities.  Our goal is to target broad patterns of abuse, rather than isiolated cases of animal cruelty.  More information is at links below:
