Celebrating 25 Years In Defense of Animals
Please let me share with you some of the many successes for the animals that you helped make possible over the past twelve months. And the past 25 years!
2008 marked our 25th year—our Silver Anniversary—as a leader in the fight to protect the rights, welfare, and habitats of animals. 2009 is the first of our next 25 years.
As you will see from our Special Anniversary Issue of our Victories & Highlights Report, 2008 was yet another year in a string of so many dramatic achievements and precedent-setting victories!
Although I am proud of IDA’s many accomplishments, my joy is dampened by the increasing determination of the animal abusers to fight for their “right” to exploit, torture, and kill—to do everything in their power to discredit and sabotage our efforts.
That is why your continued support is so critically important.
We simply must break their deadly cycle of violence, torture, and death.
Your donation today will go a long way in helping to continue to protect, rescue, and save countless innocent lives. Please give generously to reaffirm your commitment to fighting for the lives and safety of millions upon millions of animals. And read our Victories and Highlights with pride, as you are a big part of our success.
With all my heart, I thank you for your trust, generosity, compassion, and caring.
Elliot M. Katz, DVM, President, In Defense of Animals
