INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Some politicians view animal protection as inconvenient, rather than essential for a compassionate society. They are campaigning hard for this bill. We need your help to ensure that animal cruelty remains a crime in Brazil.
If the proposed bill is passed by Brazil's National Congress:
To date, over 65,000 Brazilians have contacted Brazil's National Congress to protest the bill. We believe international pressure will add huge weight to their actions.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
