Last Chance for Animals (LCA), often referred to as the "FBI of Animal Rights", is widely known for investigations that expose horrible cruelty of animals everywhere. From exposing illegal companion animal consumption, the mass slaughter of deer by the National Parks Services at Gettysburg, to the first ever conviction of USDA licensed Class B dealers, leading to maximum prison terms for three people, LCA is committed to bringing animal cruelty issues to the forefront and exposing animal abusers.

Many of these investigations were made possible due to the generosity of Sam Simon. Not only was Sam one of entertainments greatest icons, he was a pillar in the animal rights community. Because of Sam's support, LCA renamed the Special Investigations Unit to the Sam Simon Special Investions Unit (SIU). Sam passed away on March 8, 2015. 

The Sam Simon Special Investigations Unit functions as the investigative arm of LCA. The SIU team is focused on validating information, detecting suspect activity, and exposing illegal or unethical activities and reporting them to local, state and federal authorities for prosecution or other disposition.

The information obtained in LCA's  investigations is used in developing campaigns, public education and outreach, and in working with lawmakers that will bring real changes for animals.
