“Money rules the world - Animals pay the price”: This statement in our presentation on the GAL basics SHOULD not be regarded as being too true.
The GAL PROJECT needs money to improve the lives of animals globally - what a mind-blowing vision. Therefore every $, £, € etc. is urgently needed. The more we receive, the quicker, the bigger, the deeper and the higher the GAL Project will grow.
As of 27 May 2016, the funding body of the Global Animal Law Project is the Global Animal Law GAL ASSOCIATION. It has its registered office in Zürich at Höschgasse 68 and is tax-exempt. The president, founder and CEO is Dr.iur. Antoine F. Goetschel; an additional board member is Marco Gianini.
A ‘dozen’ plans are waiting to be funded and put into action, such as:
- refining the MATRIX
- getting our Contributors (dolphins) in touch with each other in an electronic “paddock” to share knowledge and experience;
- enlarging the Animal Welfare Legislation Database (AWLD) with information about animals
- in the Constitutions,
- as a third category between humans and objects,
- as voices in criminal, administrative and civil cases,
- and certain bans of malpractice;
- providing consultancy for our interest groups in law adoption, enforcement, improvement and education at local up to global level;
- forums on actual themes;
- supporting cooperation between our “foxes”;
- supporting or creating reunion conferences with the “foxes” and the “dolphins”;
- involving the “foxes” & “dolphins” in publishing;
- media work and platforms;
- translations in other major languages, at least in parts;
- enjoying the successes within a suitable framework.
Are we allowed to dream of global academies on animals in law as a utopia and a vision, and a leading electronically-connected library and database on all animal cases?
For the creation of the project, the work to run it and the creating of visionary GAL sub-projects, we desperately depend on generous financial support. Your warm-hearted and generous funding makes the young, baby-like GAL Project survive and grow. Thus enabling it to fulfill the major needs of the key players in a flexible and independent matter.
With the growing interest in our GAL project and its financial and sustainable support, we plan to create an association such as “The Friends of the GAL Project” that will sincerely welcome donations that will be exempted from tax.
Please do not hesitate to contact us concerning generous funding and the terms and conditions at email@example.com.
Let us thank you very, very much for your urgently needed, warm-hearted and generous support of our young and visionary GAL Project!

Squirrels are great at finding acorns in the woods. They save them, they help them through the winter, they help other squirrels too, and the woods profit as well.
In a similar way, you can also offer crucial and essential HELP to GAL - as a “GAL Squirrel”. Speak to friends and to generous, warm-hearted people about the GAL Project. Convince them to support the project financially. AND then you can benefit from this support too... also financially! Because you can get a commission on the sum paid if you want - paid to you by GAL. You can also leave your commission to GAL, but if you change your mind, you can, without any questions, ask for it back. This might motivate you even further to make the GAL project grow in every sense.
In detail: you sign up to GAL saying that you would like to become a "GAL Squirrel“. After accepting the clarifying terms and conditions - sorry, but we are lawyers after all - you can then start hunting for acorns. It’s up to you to convince people to support us. So let’s say you have convinced Sammy to give US$ 7,000 to GAL. If Sammy confirms to GAL that you, as a GAL Squirrel, motivated him to give the money, you are entitled to US$ 350 (5%) commission from us. You can claim this money within three months of us receiving the US$ 7,000 payment.
The commission percentage declines the greater the amount given. We start with the following scale:
- 1 to 100 US$, € or CHF, the commission is 7%
- 101-1000: 6%
- 1001-10’000: 5%
- 10’001-100’000: 4%
- 100’001-1’000’000: 3%
- 1’000’001-10’000’000: 2%
- over 10’000’000: 1%.
So if Sammy gives, let’s say, US$70,000 to GAL, the squirrel’s commission will be US$ 2,800 … and so on.
As an efficient and successful GAL squirrel, you can make the difference and play a very supportive role in the project! And you get money for doing it as well - so the energy flows in a circle.
