Animals Are So Much More Than Property
Most Americans consider animals to be members of their family—and even best friends. So why do our laws still classify animals as property?
The Animal Legal Defense Fund is in the courtroom every day, fighting for the legal system to recognize that animals are more than property. But we need your help.
Most people don’t even know animals’ legal status—and if you don’t know there is a problem, you don’t know it needs fixing! So, we are raising awareness through a new social media campaign! Join our “I Am Not Property” campaign by following the steps below.
Simply print out the “I Am Not Property” sign, write in something that describes your animal buddy, take a photo, and post it on social media with the hashtag #NotProperty.
Print the sign in color or black and white.
Don’t forget to tag the Animal Legal Defense Fund so we can share your photo with our supporters.
