We have some great news for animals today! Following a request from PETA, the District of Columbia¬†Public Schools has voluntarily adopted a progressive dissection-choice policy. This means that students in Washington, D.C., can take a stand against chopping up dead animals at school and instead learn using modern computer software and other humane methods. How awesome is that?! ūüėÄ Want even more good news? The nation’s capital is not alone! Many districts around the country¬†as well as¬†15 states already have similar policies. Check if your state is one of them!

You don’t live in one of these states? No prob‚ÄĒjust e-mail us at We’ll help you get a dissection-choice policy at your school and send you all the free material that¬†you’ll need to get the rest of your classmates on board! Don’t forget that you can print your own petition sheets to get started right away!

P.S. On Friday, we’ll be launching an all-new, interactive site that’s going to make it even easier to cut out dissection and help animals at your school, so be sure to check back! Who else is super excited for this? ūüėÄ

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
