Dear Dr. Katz,
Thank you very much for your generous donation to my defense fund. This case is not only important to me, but to the whole animal rights movement. Let's hope we can defeat this attempt to criminalize dissent.
Dear Dr. Katz,
My name is Dan Hanley and I am a student at the University of Colorado and am co-chair of the CU Dog Lab Campaign. I have worked on this issue since October of 1998, soon after having moved to Colorado. I wanted to take a brief moment to tell you how grateful I am to you and IDA for all of your support of our campaign. You all have been an incredible asset. Marshall Smith being able to come out here in March was a great help, and your donation to us for advertising helped even more. We'll keep fighting till we win, and the fight is easier with allies like yourself and IDA. Thank you.

Dear Mr. Kuba,
As had previously been discussed, the Hollister Police Officers Association has unanimously decided to no longer support or sponsor the annual Bently Brothers Circus. Thanks for bringing the issues to our attention.

I would like to thank your organization for everything you have done for me. I am so very grateful. When my beautiful little Max was brutally beaten to death, I was devastated. I didn't know where to turn for help. I have emailed over 60 organizations, and In Defense of Animals has been the only one that has taken a major interest in the case. I would also like to thank Gretchen Hersman personally for her help.
Dear Dr. Katz,
My name is Stacey Ruth and the day after Thanksgiving my dog Ace Man was shot by a new neighbor for going to the bathroom on their tree. I did not know what to do as far as what my rights were. Someone told me to call Doll Stanley, so I did. I really don't know what I would have done without her. She told me what to do, and we won our case and the man had to pay for what they did. Doll Stanley is a very busy woman but she took the time to help me. I don't know what I could ever to do repay her for all her help. But I do know that we need more people like her. All our neighbors, friends and family here think that Doll Stanley deserves a pat on the back because we would not have won our case without her.
I had good feedback since my last tabling session last month. Probably there will be another event that I will also organize. In the meantime, I have already followed the instructions in your activist pack for starting an animal rights group. Thanks for helping me out!
Dear Dr. Katz,
My husband and I just received a mailer from you. And I must say we are outraged that a company like Procter & Gamble continues this inhumane and barbaric treatment of animals. I worked for a company that sold computer imaging, cell cultures, etc., and many veterinarians, schools, labs, and corporations used these products as opposed to actual live animals. I am going through my house throwing out everything I can find that has to do with Procter & Gamble, as well as notifying everyone I know about this barbaric practice. Just wanted to let you know. Keep up the good work.

Many thanks indeed for your EXCELLENT website. Apart from the wealth of information, it makes a refreshing change to find a site that has recently updated material!
I have kept my Fall 2000 IDA Magazine on my fireplace hearth and the art on the cover has just been so pleasing. It reminds me of the good work that IDA does. I was wondering if copies of the cover photo are available.
I am an animal lover, a vegetarian and very concerned with what humans are doing to animals." The Iams Kills information was very useful, because I am planning to get a dog soon, and I was going to feed him/her Iams, but now i know the truth about them, and I will look elsewhere for petfood."
"I am a vegan and animal rights activist and wanted to see what your organization represented. I 100% support your work, and I plan on joining. Thanks for working to make the world a better place for all creatures."

"Once I read about the 4-year sentence for the youth that blew off the dog's jaw, I knew I wanted to contribute. Stiff sentencing for animal abusers is always an uphill battle. Good job!"

"I visited your web site because i am strongly against animal abuse, and i think what you are doing for animals everywhere is wonderful. The most useful part was the puppy mill and dog abuse in korea. The puppy mill part of your site had a great deal of information. I think it is just wounderful what you are doing to help these animals.After all,we don't own animals like they are items we would pick up from a store; they are our friends, not slaves!"
"Thank you for all of your hard work in keeping us informed of the atrocities committed against the animal beings in our world. I have followed many of your suggestions and either e-mailed, written, called or faxed people suggested by your alerts. It makes me feel like a worthwhile part of humanity if I can do a small part in adding a voice to your campaigns."
"Keep up the good work! The animals need us!"
"I am doing my grade 8 speech against vivisection, and I needed to do some research. I went to Google, and this site popped up. After reading some of the articles and looking at the graphs, I realized how much effort is put into stopping known vivisecting researchers, and how horrible the practice of vivisection is. So I decided to try and do as much as I could to help out. Thank you for creating this site, because it not only helped me with my speech, but it helped me want to stop vivisection and help out the organization that tries to stop it, too."
"You are wonderful! Go on! Thank you very much for all that you do for the animals, your activity is hope to a better world for humanity and the animals. Thanks in the name of the animals! I will support you!
