To defend the inalienable rights of both companion animals and wildlife through education, legal and legislative
Defenders of Animals Inc., began a 44-year journey of caring for and defending the rights of animals in
April of 1978, and was founded by Dennis Tabella and Patricia A. Tabella.
Our legislative campaign consisted of intensive lobbying efforts that entailed numerous conferences with selected
legislators, presentation of testimony, newspaper ads, mass mailings, media contact and calls/letters from members.
