NORRISTOWN, PA — The District Attorney’s Office recognizes the inability of animal victims to voice their pain so we continue to provide that voice and fight for them in court. Beyond battling for voiceless animal victims in court, our prosecutors have again organized a collection drive to benefit the Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Anyone wishing to donate blankets, towels, canned pet food, animal toys or other items to benefit the Montgomery County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals can drop the items in boxes located in the lobby of the District Attorney’s Office on the fourth floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse and by the security checkpoints on the plaza level and first floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse.

Justice for All Animals: The Way Forward

Fall 2012 — Take part at a library near you! (ages 13 and up.)
Free Lectures by Responsible Policies for Animals Founder David Cantor

Injustice toward nonhuman animals causes them inestimable suffering. It wreaks havoc on human beings, families, communities, nations, and the natural world, causing disease and other misery and preventing happiness and fulfillment. Recognizing injustice toward other animals, we can better assess policies and practices, pointing our officials, candidates, and institutions in the right direction. Surprises and laughs likely! All ages, 13 and up.

A lifelong educator and a full-time advocate for a quarter-century, David Cantor founded Responsible Policies for Animals in 2002. Bringing humor and original insight to his work, he enjoys speaking with people in all walks of life. Visit for Cantor’s background, publications, and ideas.
