Support H.R. 5092 – Crush Act Amendment
Tell your Congressional Representative to support H.R. 5092. This new bill amends the Crush Act to give it a much narrower focus that would still prohibit selling or offering to sell any depictions of animals being crushed, drowned, impaled or burned where such acts are illegal.

Tell USDA: Get Queenie out of San Antonio Zoo and send her to PAWS Sanctuary
Despite widespread public opposition to her transfer, Queenie was moved to the San Antonio Zoo. The move was part of a settlement agreement with circus handler Will Davenport for federal animal welfare charges against him. This action is particularly egregious since the PAWS Sanctuary had made a formal offer to give Queenie a home that would provide the highest possible quality of life including 50 acres to roam, high quality care, her choice of social companions, and some peace and quiet.
What you can do:
Please call USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack today at (202) 720-3631, and send the fax at the bottom of this page to Secretary Vilsack and new USDA/White House Liaison Kevin Washoe.
Boycott PETCO and PetSmart
Video footage obtained in a new PETA undercover investigation reveals
disturbing living and dying conditions for animals at Sun Pet Ltd., a
wholesale animal dealer that supplies animals to numerous PETCO and
PetSmart locations. PETA’s investigator documented cruel, extremely crowded, and filthy conditions that forced animals to eat, sleep, urinate, and defecate all in the same tiny space as well as the violent killing and rough handling of birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, mice, and rats.
Tell both companies to stop selling animals altogether, and let these companies know that you, your friends, and your family will not be giving them any business until animals are no longer part of their “inventory.”
Pass the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act
Tell U.S. Congress to support H.R. 4733, and end the use of gestation crates, veal crates, and battery cages in America.
The U.S. government spends upwards of 1 billion dollars per year on animal products that feed government programs and agencies, like the National School Lunch Program, the federal Bureau of Prisons, and the Armed Services.
The Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act, H.R. 4733, would require the government to purchase food for these programs only from farms where animals can move freely and extend their limbs in their confinement– that means no gestation crates, veal crates, or battery cages. Since it’s essentially impossible for every packer to trace each piece of meat back to it’s farm of origin, they would need all of their suppliers to comply with these standards; so the law would apply to virtually every farm in the country.
Contact your Senators and US Representatives, and ask them to support The Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act, H.R. 4733
