GET ACTIVE FOR ANIMALS - Volunteer with SAFE
Volunteers are the public face of SAFE and it is an essential role to spread the message against animal cruelty and welfare issues across New Zealand. Volunteers can assist with and organise stalls, displays, public meetings, protest actions, fundraising events, and actively support SAFE's humane education programme.
For local activities and more on the volunteer network go to the SAFE's events page. To become a volunteer please sign up here!
By educating yourself about the issues you will often have the advantage when being challenged and you will find it easy to inform others in a confident and relaxed manner. Share your understanding about animal issues within your own networks of friends and family, so you can develop and strengthen your views and opinions.
The best place to start is on SAFE's Campaigns page.
Stay in touch - sign up to the SAFE ebulletin and recommend it to your friends.

SPREAD THE MESSAGE
The people around you are the ones you are best positioned to influence. Try to talk to your network of family and friends about the issues and adopting a compassionate lifestyle.
If you're at school, undertake a project or presentation on animal suffering and explain how classmates can help make a difference.
Businesses are sensitive to the views and concern of their customers. Write letters to companies and industry bosses voicing your opposition to cruel practices they support, such as factory farming or animal testing.
