Dale's statement about the Missouri Alliance for Animal Legislation:
"No other animal welfare organization works exclusively on legislative matters not only within Missouri, but nationally as well. Although state-based, the Alliance has garnered national attention for its efforts and achievements. Our work is vitally important since passage and retention of animal protection laws is the first line of defense for animals. We also work towards enforcement, as application and adherence to those laws and subsequent prosecution of violators is just as important to ensure compliance.
One of our ongoing goals is to expand awareness of our legislative efforts throughout Missouri (and the country) via our website and usage of social media, supporting initiatives within institutions of higher learning, and providing educational opportunities to all residents of Missouri.
An educated and informed public can and will make a difference in the lives of animals."
