On Tuesday October 9th, the Animals' Battalion joined NYC animal advocates at a hearing in City Hall to urge the city to move forward with it's proposal to build a Bronx animal shelter. This initiative is being challenged by real estate developer, First Hartford Realty Corporation which is lobbying for its own commercial interests. At stakes are the well being of countless animals. The Animals' Battalion stands resolutely in defense of placing a shelter in the Bronx as well as any measure that aids animal rescuers in their endeavors.
Roberto Bonelli, the founder of the Animals' Battalion, was invited to give a presentation on the topic of declawing at the Anti-Fur Society's recent conference on September 15, 2018 in New York City.

There has been a war waged on animals for as long as humanity has existed. They are consumed, worn, experimented on, enslaved and killed every single second of the day throughout the world. They are not respected as sentient beings; instead they are considered property or resources to be used. What little laws there are concerning animal cruelty are barely enforced.
Facing the reality of what animals can expect at the hands of humanity, the Animals’ Battalion has its own interpretation of animal rights and veganism. We do not pin our hopes on a magical day of enlightenment. We commit ourselves to safeguarding animals from the baser elements of human nature. We endeavor to continuously evolve in every area of animal protection- education, outreach, protest, legal activism and rescue. Most importantly we understand this is a lifelong path.
Our sole political stance is to advocate for the rights, interests and well being of all animals. We will never allow other issues or interests to interfere with that. We believe animal rights is a vocation not a hobby or simple pastime. If you agree, we invite you to join the Battalion.
ACT UP. FIGHT BACK. GO VEGAN.
PROTECT THE FAUNA!
