SALDF Gives Back to the Commnity

Law Student Animal Legal Defense Fund

SALDF presents a check from their successful calendar sale to the Alabama Animal Alliance

The Faulkner Law Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF) raised over $800 for the Alabama Animal Alliance. The check was given presented to Rachel Tears, director of the Alabama Animal Alliance, at the Faulkner University Jones School of Law during a presentation Tuesday, February 18.The SALDF raised money throughout the year by selling calendars comprised of photos of student’s pets. Photos were submitted and voted on, and the top twelve earning photos were selected for the calendar. Rachel Boyd, president of Faulkner Law’s SALDF Chapter, was excited about the success of the fundraiser and it’s ongoing partnership with the Alabama Animal Alliance. “The SALDF is excited to once again be involved in our community and on the JSL campus. I am very impressed in all the members’ dedication and perseverance to organize such a successful fundraiser,” Boyd said. We are all very happy to support such a wonderful organization in Montgomery with whom we have a common interest—helping the lives of animals in our area.” The Alabama Animal Alliance is working to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in central and south Alabama through prevention, education, and collaboration. They provide high quality, high volume, low cost spay and neuter surgeries for companion animals while educating the public on the importance of preventing unwanted pets, according to the organizations website. “With the money raised by the SALDF, more than 20 animals will be spayed or neutered at our clinic. Statistically speaking, those 20 surgeries have the ability to prevent more than 150 unwanted animals from being born this year,” Tears said. “Every dollar the SALDF raised has the potential to save an unwanted animal from being abandoned and/or euthanized. The impact the SALDF will make with their calendar fundraiser is significant, meaningful, and downright amazing. We are so appreciative!”
