The Animal Defense League (ADL) is an internationally active grassroots animal rights organization fighting to put an end to animal exploitation and abuse. Working under the same banner, the coalition of activists and supporters that make up the various ADL chapters are able to have a stronger effect in their campaigns and fight together towards the collective goal of animal liberation. The Texas ADL was established in 1934 in San Antonio.[1]
