Ask Everett to stop supporting animal circuses
This coming week, Ringling Bros will have numerous performances at the Everett Events Center
The animals do not enjoy being carted all over the country to jump through hoops in a brightly lit circus ring. Elephants, and the other animals in the circus, deserve better than to be forced to perform tricks for peoples’ amusement.
There has been endless documentation to show that the elephants in the circus are abused, and it is time to stop supporting animal circuses.
Take Action
In addition to attending the circus protests, please contact the Comcast Arena at Everett, and politely ask them to make this the last year that they host a circus with animals.

Urge Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to Retire the Alamogordo Chimpanzees
Tell Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius to keep almost 200 chimpanzees at the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) in New Mexico and create a sanctuary there. Since 2001, chimpanzees have been housed at APF, where they cannot be used for research. However, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) plans to move the chimpanzees—many of them at least 30 years old—to the Southwest National Primate Research Facility in San Antonio, Texas, where they can be used in painful, invasive experiments.
* I am troubled that NIH wants to move almost 200 chimpanzees from Alamogordo Primate Facility on Holloman Air Force Base.
* Please ensure that the chimpanzees stay in Alamogordo.
* These highly intelligent animals should be retired and a sanctuary created for them.
* If these animals are moved almost 40 people who work at the facility will lose their jobs.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
