SPEAK UP NOW to End the Suffering of Traveling Animals!

How would you like it if someone chained you to the inside of your car, whipped you, starved you, and screamed at you whenever you did anything that the person didn’t like? You probably wouldn’t like it—right? Well, this may come as a big shock … but animals don’t either.

Unfortunately, countless exotic animals are forced to travel in stressful conditions—being electro-shocked, beaten will bullhooks, and deprived of food or water, all for our entertainment.

Fortunately, Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia has introduced H.R. 3359, or the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, a new bill that, if passed, would mean unprecedented improvements for animals used in circuses and other traveling acts!

However, Ringling Bros. and its parent company, Feld Entertainment, are misleadingly labeling this important bill as an “attack” on “another American tradition” and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to oppose it—which is why it is so important that you take a moment now to contact your federal representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 3359! Let your representative know that animal abuse is not a tradition worth supporting!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
