Speaking out for animals

Take action

Even if all you have is one minute you can still take action to help animals.

There are lots of positive ways you can help animals and make a difference.

Everyday people around New Zealand are standing up for animals, and there is real change as a result.  We are seeing law changes for animals and compassionate living is more popular than ever before!  And it’s because of people like you getting involved.

Even if all you have is 60 seconds, you can help.

Protect the ban on Live Export

National and Act are seeking to reverse the ban on live animal exports, posing a significant risk to animal welfare.

You can make a difference by showing Christopher Luxon (National Party Leader) and David Seymour (ACT Party leader) that there is significant support in the general New Zealand community for ending the live export of animals.

Demand a commissioner for animals

While there are Government bodies to represent vulnerable members of our community, including children and the environment, animals are not represented in Parliament. That is why we have formed the Commissioner for Animals Alliance. Together, our voices are stronger.

Ban rodeo cruelty

Every summer, countless animals are subjected to fear, distress, risk of injury and death – all for the sake of ‘entertainment.’ Demand an end to the torment. Write to the Associate Minister for Animal Welfare and the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee to call for an end to rodeo in Aotearoa

Take urgent action for Greyhounds

The Government has delayed its decision on the future of greyhound racing in Aotearoa until after the election. Hundreds of dogs will continue to suffer while our leaders kick the can down the road.Enough is enough; urge Prime Minister, Racing Minister, and Associate Agriculture Minister (Animal Welfare) to take decisive action and ban greyhound racing once and for all.

Demand an end to fish factory farming

Sadly, just beneath the pristine waters of the Marlborough Sounds and Stewart Island, millions of salmon are living secret lives of misery and suffering in underwater factory farms. These farms have no place in Aotearoa and SAFE is working towards a ban on fish farming – something Argentina has already achieved. Until then, it’s important to ensure that those trapped in this cruel system are better protected. SAFE is calling on NAWAC to create a code of welfare for farmed fishes, as a matter of urgency.
