Young Advocate Action Kit


Animals suffer in so many ways at the hands of humans! They are:

  • Raised and killed in terrible conditions for food, fur, and other fashions.
  • Exploited in cruel and unnecessary experiments.
  • Confined and displayed at roadside zoos.
  • Forced to perform in shows at theme parks.
  • Used as weapons and bait in dogfighting, pig wrestling, coyote penning, killed in killing contests.

Unfortunately, the list goes on. But there are things each of us can do today to help animals right away.

Animal protection laws are an important part of making the world a better place for animals. That’s what makes animal lawyers so influential in solving these problems. But even if you’re not an animal lawyer, you can support the work we do with powerful actions to speak up for animals. Here are some great project ideas for students who want to get active for animals in their community.


These are great ways to speak out in your community about animal protection issues! And your voices will be heard!

For example, Ms. Buck’s fourth-grade class at Guilmette Elementary School wrote letters to Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, asking him to free Tony, a Siberian-Bengal tiger held captive at a truck stop. How awesome is that?
