Top 7 Ways to Help Save Animals

It’s super-easy to help animals, no matter where you live, what you do or how old you are. Check out our Top 7 Ways to Save Animals to get a jump-start on making a huge difference in the lives of animal everywhere:

1. Go Vegan!

Going vegan means that you don’t eat, wear, or use anything that came from an animal, such as meat, milk, eggs, leather … you get the idea. Just by going vegan, you will save the lives of more than 100 animals every year! Pretty awesome, right?

If you, your family or your friends are concerned about your health as a vegan, tell them that according to the American Dietetic Association, vegan diet is safe for everyone. Try some green smoothies and vegan recipes on this site. So take the pledge to go vegan already!

2. Buy Cruelty-Free

Animals shouldn’t be blinded, poisoned, or burned just for the soap, shampoo, or lip balm we use. But in labs across the country, these things happen all the time. Take a stand against animal testing by buying only cruelty-free products. It’s easy! Just take a look at the package, and make sure that it says that it wasn’t tested on animals.

3. Don’t Support Animals in Entertainment

Animals are alive for their own reasons, not to entertain us. Animals in movies, circuses, and zoos are denied everything that is natural and important to them. They will never be allowed to hang out with their families, graze, or do anything that they would do in the wild. Refuse to support this cruelty by never going to a zoo, marine park, or circus that uses animals.

4. Volunteer at Your Local Animal Shelter or Animal Sanctuary

Animal shelters are always in need of more help! Whether you are helping by walking dogs, cleaning out water bowls, or hanging up signs, we bet they have a job for you. Call your local shelter and ask whether it needs any help. You could make a big difference in the lives of homeless dogs, cats, and other animals!

5. Cut Out Dissection

If your class is planning on dissecting any animal, ask your teacher for a humane alternative assignment, such as using a computer program to perform a virtual dissection. An animal will be saved, and you will actually learn and remember way more! Check out more info on how to get a dissection alternative at your school.

6. Pledge to Be Fur-Free and Wool-Free!

Even just “a little bit” of fur trim on mittens, boots, and collars caused tremendous suffering for an animal who was abused and killed on a fur farm or trapped and killed in the wild.  Help protect animals by refusing to buy or wear any fur or wool.

7. Tell Your Friends!

Share with your friends why you have decided to stick up for animals and encourage them to get involved, too.
