Los Angeles Nonprofit Formation for Animal Protection Organizations

Get Started with an Animal Lawyer in Burbank & Los Angeles!

One study indicates that more than 9,000 pets are killed each day in shelters across America, only because they are without proper homes. Fortunately, through intentional effort and hard work, this statistic can decrease significantly. One of the most effective ways to begin is by creating a nonprofit animal protection organization for these pets without homes.

She knows that all animals have rights and is committed to providing legal counsel to those who want to make a difference. Attorney Rizzotti has nearly 15 years of legal experience, making her a valuable asset as you begin your animal protection organization.

How do I begin forming my organization?

Also referred to as a humane organization, animal protection organizations can bring awareness to the public and serve as a beacon of hope in an otherwise dark place. There is, however, a lot that must be prepared in order for your efforts to be successful.

The following steps are a general outline to follow as you begin:

  • Establish a mission statement
  • Set realistic goals
  • Gather a team of people you can trust
  • Make your organization legal
  • Raise public awareness

Many human organizations fall by the wayside due to insufficient resources and attainable goals. With a lawyer on your side, you can constantly reevaluate your goals for the highest possible level of success. It is important that your organization is equipped to care for the extensive needs of the animals you’ll be housing and that you comply with the city’s laws.

Whatever your goals are for your animal protection organization, Attorney Shelley Rios is capable of assessing your case and may be able to represent you throughout its entirety.
