As much of an animal advocate as I am, when it comes down to the most important thing for animals, it isn’t the rescues. It is to get the laws changed for animal protection. This is why today’s guest, lawyer and Executive Director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, Stephen Wells, is such an incredible human being and an incredible hero. 

Stephen talks about overturned Ag-Gag laws and what it means for farmed animals who are currently locked behind closed factory doors. He speaks of the fact that in many states it is legal to do certain things to farmed animals that would not be legal to do to your pet. In fact, we discuss how, in 42 of the 50 states, factories are exempt from animal cruelty laws.  

Stephen is on an incredible journey of helping animals gain justice. In one circumstance a horse named Justice is actually in the process of a lawsuit against the owner. Another instance was in New York a dog named Bella was beaten to death and there is a bill coming soon named after that dog that addresses animal cruelty laws. Things are changing and much of it is due to the Animal Legal Defense Fund and their growing number of lawyers, university chapters, and funding.
