All across the U.S. animals are forced to entertain the general public in circuses. These animals are taken from the wild and forced to perform and amuse with dangerous stunts.

Circuses are continuously fined and cited under the Animal Welfare Act, but this does not seem to dissuade circuses from their horrific practices.

Nevada laboratories now have the option to adopt their animals after testing, but a senator is aiming to make it a requirement. Applaud him for working to make the world a better place for animals, and support his efforts by signing the petition today.
