Want to help animals, but have limited time? Feel bad
that you can't volunteer at your local shelter or protest at the nearest
Macy's? Fret not, my friend, for there are small simple things you can
do each day that will change the lives of millions!
~~ When you get mail from organizations that claim to
help animals, but actually help to kill others (like local kill shelters
and places like WWF and NWF), take those cards that ask for your
donation and write "No Money Until You Stop The Killing" and mail it.
You won't have to pay for postage because most organizations give you
envelopes with postage paid already. That's $0.34 that won't go to
~~ Teach a fact about animal rights to a neighbor,
friend, family member, or coworker a day. Don't come across strongly,
and do not break into an argument. Even if the person says that you are
wrong or crazy, rest assured that your thought is in their mind, and
might change their way of thinking.
~~ Go vegan! With each dairy, meat, egg, and animal
product subtracted from your menu, lives are saved. Tell others why you
are not eating "the norm."
~~ Post no-kill shelter phone numbers on bulletin
boards. There is always someone looking for a companion.
~~ Become the human billboard. Wear buttons with animal
rights messages. Wear hats with logos of animal friendly companies.
~~ Buy smart. Shop only cruelty free. With a more and
more companies opposed to animal testing, the choices become easier to
the compassionate shopper.
