Discussions about animals happen all the time in our schools, in our churches and at public government meetings. Senators and representatives consider laws that protect wildlife and wildlife habitat, farm animals, and animals used in research. You can take part in these discussions and influence their decisions by calling, writing or visiting them – as an individual or as part of a group. Here are some tips on how to be heard.

It’s never too early to learn the importance of speaking up for your beliefs. Here are some ideas:

  • If you can’t write a letter, draw a picture and have an adult help you send it.
  • Join an animal protection group, like Humane Society Youth. That way you can receive alerts about upcoming legislative decisions.
  • Does your school offer an alternative to dissection? If not, ask if you can make a presentation to the faculty. Do your research first!
  • Ask your local library if you can put up a display about animal protection.
  • Check with local emergency preparedness authorities to learn the disaster plans for people with pets in your area. Share the information with pet guardians you know.
