SONJA MEADOWS - FOUNDER, PRESIDENT & LEAD INVESTIGATOR OF ANIMALS’ ANGELS INC. Since 2007, Sonja has traveled across the US on behalf of America’s farm animals - visiting auctions, feedlots and slaughter plants, documenting the dreadful conditions that far too often exist. Sonja’s videos exposing cruelty and intolerable conditions have been used by countless media outlets, educating the public about the plight of US farm animals. She is responsible for the first-ever cruelty conviction of the largest auction on the East Coast. And was then successful in getting them convicted a second time. She is also behind the exposure & conviction of a large scale horse rescue that, instead of providing hundreds of horses with a safe home as promised, was shipping them to slaughter. Sonja has testified in court against animal abusers and has lobbied local, state, and federal bodies, advocating for stronger laws and improved conditions for farm animals. https://ginamc.blogspot.com/2016/07/animals-angels-interview-with-sonya.html
