Write a letter
If you live in a county or state that allows the surrender or sale of pets from pounds or shelters,
to class B dealers or research facilities, write to your officials asking them to stop this barbaric and outdated practice.
Sign a petition
Petitions are frequently circulated in many areas. They are also posted on the web. Look for these
petitions and sign them if they endeavor to change animal welfare laws for the betterment of the animals.
Educate yourself and others
Learn all you can about animal welfare issues. There are many organizations, nationwide,
working to benefit animals and their owners. Most if not all provide informational materials. Send for these materials, learn
from them and distribute them in your area. Help spread compassion towards animals world wide!
Help an animal
Look around your own hometown. Do you see an animal in need? One, which is injured? Take it to a
vet and offer to pay part of the fees. Abused or neglected? Call your officials and demand something be done, then follow
up. Does the owner need help? Get involved! Remember that animal abuse is often a symptom of people abuse. Animal appears
neglected? Sometimes the owner needs help too. Maybe they are having financial problems, or too ill to care for themselves
much less the animals. Offer your help, you might save a human life along with the animal's life!
Sometimes the best
thing for all is to find a new home for the animal. Do what you can. Beware though, that "free" ads often bring
"bunchers". These are people who prey on unsuspecting owners, offering good homes; only in reality they will sell
the pet to a research dealer or facility.
