Animal Ashram's founder Leesa Rowland welcomed over 100 guests during an event honoring Last Chance for Animals' Founder Chris DeRose, in support of Last Chance For Animals and Animal Ashram. Robin Cofer, Liz Derringer and Arden Wohl co-chaired.

Last Chance is known for investigative work against animal cruelty, often putting undercover agents into testing labs and slaughter houses. "We've been called the FBI or Navy Seals of Animal Rights," DeRose told the room. "We go in there and make a difference." Currently, they are working behind the scenes in China and South Korea. And they recently exposed a toxicity lab and pig farm in Canada for torturous conditions.
