SAFE’s Legal Justice Fund Matching

Help us defend the rights of animals used in rodeo

The calves, horses and bulls unlawfully abused in rodeo events can’t take the Government to court, but we can.

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

A generous matching donor has stepped forward, inspired by YOU – our passionate SAFE community, to help you do more good for animals unlawfully abused in rodeo.

Give now to have your gift for animals matched $ for $!

Your $10 gift becomes $20
Your $20 gift becomes $40
Your $50 gift becomes $100

Your donation counts twice as much

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.

There’s never been a better time to help us get there. Right now, you will have the most impact for animals, because your gift will be doubled by our generous matching donor.

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.
