What can kids do for the animals?
Be kind to animals.
Make sure your friends are too.
Learn about animals so you can be their voice.
Write your congressman. We make it easy at www.CatLaws.com
Don’t wear or play with things made out of real animals.
If you see fur for sale at a store tell the manager that it’s cruel to kill animals for their fur.
Don’t go to animal shows or circuses that use animals.
Never pay someone to touch a baby tiger or take your picture with one.
Don’t let people bring wild animals to your school. They aren’t props!
Recycle ink cartridges and cell phones at Recycle
Do a fundraiser for the big cats by selling magazines at www.MagFundraising.com/bigcatrescue
Or you can wash cars, mow yards, walk the neighbor’s dogs or have a yard or bake sale. Party Ideas.
Do a zoo check to find out if your zoo is dumping animals when the next babies come.
Ask to see where the animals are kept when the zoo isn’t open. Most of these animals spend half their lives shut in small cells.
Try making fewer of your meals out of dead animals. Soy is protein from plants and better for you anyway. Go Veg!
Pick up litter. Lots of wild animals are killed from eating or being trapped in litter.
Spay or neuter your pets. Hundreds of thousands of pets are killed each year because there are more babies than homes.
Micro chip your pets so they can always find their way home!
