Petitions:

Ban Body-Crushing Traps That Paralyze And Kill Endangered Animals

Body-gripping traps work by slamming shut onto helpless animals, crushing their bones or organs in an inescapable hold. Millions of animals suffer slow and agonizing deaths because of these cruel devices. Ban the use of such traps in protected areas throughout the U.S.

Stop Auctioning Off Frightened Baby Animals

Stop Cutting Fish Open While Still Alive

Sturgeon fish are brutally cut open–often while still alive and conscious–so that their eggs can be stolen from their ovaries and sold as caviar. A “delicacy” that causes so much suffering and pain is no delicacy at all. Demand a ban against caviar in the state of New York.

Don’t Sentence Exotic Animals to a Life in Cruel Captivity

Success: Endangered Species Once Again Federally Protected

The Trump administration removed a series of vital environmental protections and put endangered animals at risk of extinction. Thankfully, these species are now safe, and their welfare is guaranteed by law. Praise the judge responsible for protecting these animals.

Afford All Lab Animals Federal Protection Against Inhumane Treatment

Mice, rats, birds, fish, and reptiles are used in animal testing experiments more often than any other species. This means they endure painful physical and psychological procedures without any legal safeguards. Demand that they gain federal protection against inhumane treatment.

End Cruel Shark Killing Tournaments

Each year, tens of thousands of sharks are murdered for fun during shark killing tournaments. This causes a drastic drop in their already dwindling population. Demand an end to these cruel competitions before more sharks disappear from our oceans.

Strip Misleading Labels from Meat and Dairy Products

The barbaric practice of gassing dogs and cats to death may soon be banned in one state. Thank the people who fought for this victory for animal rights.
