Information from The Performing Animal Welfare Society:
Join efforts to save exotic animals from the horrors of traveling circus life. On Tuesday, March 20, 2012, help light up “In Boxes” in Washington, D.C., and around the country.
Animal organizations, humane groups, sanctuaries and animal advocates everywhere on this day, your help is needed to make a difference!
The 2012 Congressional year is well underway. PAWS is working with Animal Defenders International (ADI) to mount a mass broad-based support campaign for the Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, H. R. 3359 – the bill to protect wild animals from traveling circuses in the United States. This life-saving bill is in the Agriculture Committee of the House of Representatives. This is the committee where most animal protection laws are assigned, and all too often, die. Without your help on March 20th, H.R. 3359 may never make it out of this critical committee.
