There is so much animal abuse that occurs every second.
What can I possibly do that will have any effect?
DON’T CONTRIBUTE TO ANIMAL SUFFERING. Before we can ask
others to stop harming animals, we must eliminate all forms of animal
cruelty in our lives:
•Boycott companies that conduct animal tests.
•Refuse to wear animals (fur, leather, wool, etc.).
•Boycott events that profit off of animal
"entertainment" (circuses, rodeos, zoos, aquariums, etc.).
EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT ANIMAL EXPLOITATION. Pick up some
of the following books and share them with friends:
•Animal Liberation by Peter Singer
•The Case for Animal Rights by Tom Regan
•Diet for a New America by John Robbins
GET INVOLVED IN THE ANIMAL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.
•Volunteer at local pro-animal organizations.
•Attend animal rights demonstrations in your area.
•If there are no groups in your area, start organizing!
EDUCATE OTHERS ABOUT THE PLIGHT OF ANIMALS on factory
farms, in labs, or other areas where they are exploited.
Good Intentions Aren’t Good Enough…GET ACTIVE!
