This update from The Animal Legal Defense Fund posted at http://www.aldf.org/tony
On August 15, lawyers for ALDF will be in court in Baton Rouge to defend against Sandlin’s attempt to get the case dismissed. The Court has also set a hearing date of September 15 for ALDF’s motion for a mandatory injunction, which seeks an immediate revocation of Sandlin’s permit to keep Tony.
Please also show your support for The Animal Legal Defense Fund and the tremendous work they do for all animals by writing a review for them. Every organization that receives 10 or more positive reviews during the month of August will make the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Animal Welfare Nonprofits List. Information at: http://aldf.org/article.php?id=1784 The campaign ends August 31st, 2011.
