SAFE’s Legal Justice Fund Matching

Help us defend the rights of animals used in rodeo

Thank you! Because of you, we have successfully hit our matching goal!

A generous matching donor provided dollar-for-dollar matching for rodeo donations until Monday 11 July. You, our community of passionate animal defenders, accepted the challenge and help us achieve our matching goal. Thank you!

You have helped be the voice of calves, horses and bulls in the High Court.

On the 11th and 12th of July, NZALA and SAFE took the ultimate step to defend the rights of animals. Together, with your help, we challenged the Government and New Zealand Rodeo Cowboys Association in the High Court. We made the legal case that rodeo violates the Animal Welfare Act 1999 and is unlawful.

You can still help us reach our $150,000 fundraising goal to defend the rights of animals used in rodeo

Donate and be a part of making history for animals

Your gift will seek justice for the calves, horses and bulls unlawfully abused in rodeo.

Justice for the scared calves who are chased, roped and thrown to the ground.
Justice for the steers who have their necks painfully twisted 180 degrees.
Justice for the bulls and horses forced to buck unnaturally at great risk to their spines.

We need your help to reach our $150,000 fundraising goal to defend the rights of animals used in rodeo.

A legal challenge against the Government is no small task and if we are not successful the financial penalty could be more than $150,000. As one of the only voices for animals, we cannot let possible costs stand in the way of justice.

Legal proceedings are expensive, but we believe, and I'm sure you do too, that a life free from suffering for the horses, calves and bulls abused in rodeo each year is well worth the expense.

Give a gift now and be a part of making history for animals.
