ANIMAL ISSUES LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

March 26, 2020

UPDATES


Since we are on standstill for the foreseeable future, please consider donating to your favorite zoological institution.  Several circus related animal businesses could very much use the help, not only for the animals that had to be pulled off the road, but for now not being open to the public.  If you know of any others you would like listed please let me know and I will compile another list for next week.

The Endangered Ark Foundation - winter quarters for Carson & Barnes circus 
Two Tails Ranch - Zerbini elephants
The Preserve - Kari and Gary Johnson’s elephants
Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary- The Rosaire’s cats and zoo
Bearadise Ranch - The Welde Bears
