This week is National Justice for Animals Week, an important time to focus on one of the most vulnerable victims of abuse. It is vital that people take action to protect animals and give a voice to the voiceless. Many of our supporters have kept up to date on Hardy, a cat Alley Cat Rescue saved who had endured weeks of torture and mutilation. Although his recovery was inspiring, it was a difficult story for many to hear. ACR has been advocating for Hardy and cats who have endured similar abuses, to end this senseless violence. You too can help victims of animal cruelty by calling your representatives and urging them to take action on these important bills:
