You Can Do
Do not attend rodeos, shows, circuses, animal races or amusement
parks that exploit animals. Most children love animals and enjoy
seeing them whenever they can. Explain to children why your
family chooses not to support these forms of cruelty.
If your local community sponsors a rodeo or circus, write to the
city manager, city council members and corporate sponsors and
If you wish to enjoy a circus, support non-animal circuses
instead. Tell your friends, family and coworkers not to go to
the circus. Remind them that circus animals are not volunteers.
Contact the venue that will be hosting a circus or rodeo and ask
management to withdraw the invitation or, at the very least, not
to invite them back next year.
Watch television shows and films carefully for potential animal
abuse. Point out the realities of “training” to your friends and
family. Educate the media about animal exploitation.
