Lawyers for Animals (LFA) has chosen its 5th biennial Animal Law Breakfast to launch its Guide to Animal Cruelty Sentencing. The Guide is the fruition of LFA’s longest-running project, which commenced more than ten years ago. It aims to generate uniform and proportional custodial sentences for perpetrators of serious animal cruelty.
Please join us for a sumptuous vegan breakfast, generously provided by Maddocks, followed by an informal Q&A-style panel discussion featuring two of Victoria’s most senior legal prosecutors of animal cruelty: Wendy Gutteridge of RSPCA Victoria, and Amitoj Singh and Anna Leith of Victoria Police. Both will attempt to answer audience queries while sharing their personal experiences of prosecuting animal cruelty in Australia and also (in Wendy’s case) the UK.
The Animal Law Breakfast has once again been made possible through the generous support of Maddocks, for which LFA is immensely grateful. This year, all proceeds from the ticket price and donated cosmetic items (to be sold on the day) will be evenly divided between two direct animal rescue charities: Maneki Neko Cat Rescue and Big Sky Sanctuary, both of which directly care for the animal victims of cruelty and neglect.
