Standing up 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.

Demand a ban on live export

Live exports simply aren't worth the risks. A ship 'Gulf Livestock 1' which left Napier port carrying 43 crew (including two New Zealanders) and 5,800 cows bound for China is missing. These cows should never have been at sea. Write to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Agriculture demanding a ban on all live animal exports.

Demand a Crown entity to protect animals

Farmed animal cruelty is a widespread problem that the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) is failing to deal with.

Stop greyhound racing

Animals suffer and die in the New Zealand greyhound racing industry. Dogs are injured on the track and often killed, as their injuries will prevent them from racing again. An even larger number of healthy greyhounds are killed simply because they do not run fast enough, and therefore do not provide a financial return.

This summer stand with the animals

Rodeo is a brutal form of entertainment that inflicts terror upon innocent animals. Their bodies suffer horrific injuries such as broken necks, haemorrhaging, dislocations and organ damage. Some of them die as a result - all so that a small group of people can ‘play cowboy.’

End feedlots

In New Zealand we love animals, and we value our natural environment. There is a future for New Zealand where both these values can be realised, but it means we need to end the use of feedlots.

Duck shooting

Duck shooting is indiscriminate slaughter of both native and introduced species, and it can cause severe suffering for those birds not killed outright.
