Require Pet Stores to Partner with Rescue Groups

Shelter animals face a daunting road when trying to find a forever home.

Please sign this petition to urge Colorado to create a statewide partnership between pet stores and animal rescues.

Protect Birds From Cruelty in Farms and Labs

Birds do not receive the same animal welfare protections as other animals that are used in research, commercially bred and transported, and exhibited to the public.

Demand More Vegan Food Options to Save Animals

There is no way to humanely kill an animal who doesn’t want to die.

Please urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to build rope bridges to give squirrels a safe way to cross the road.

Don’t Strip Protections From Majestic Manatees

Save Animals From Shrinking Habitats

Do Not Ban Dogs From Downtown Area

Dogs cannot stay or walk anymore in the downtown area of Eugene, Oregon. The canine ban has been criticized for not only locking out inoffensive animals but also excluding homeless people and limiting citizens’ right to come and go. Sign the petition to have this absurd ban immediately lifted and Eugene transformed into a city that welcomes everyone.
