  • New York: Protect Wildlife from Cruel Snare Traps

    Bills A.927a/S.2953a would allow New York's wildlife to be trapped in cruel and indiscriminate snares again. Protect all animals from the agony of snaring.

  • New York: Help Homeless Cats

    Tell Governor Cuomo to fund trap/neuter/return programs for cats by signing into law Bill A.2778/S.1081. TNR programs control homeless cat populations humanely, helping both cats and their communities. Call today.

  • New York: Cows Need Their Tails!

    Many dairy producers cut or crush the tails off cows without any pain relief. Cruel and unnecessary tail "cutting" or "docking" will be outlawed in New York if you help pass bill A.925. Call and email today!

  • New York: City: Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages

    New York City carriage horses are forced to work and live in inhumane conditions, and there have been dozens of accidents resulting in horse injuries and deaths. Please urge your NYC Council Members to support the ban of this inhumane practice.

  • Consolidated Animal Crimes Bill for New York

    New York animal cruelty laws have been more difficult to enforce because they're hidden within the state's Agriculture and Markets statutes for decades, confusing police, prosecutors and judges. You can change that now!
