ENGAGE: Let’s Stop Live-Animal Sales at Swap Meets

PetSupply_2_033111.jpgAs the weather warms and days brighten, swap meets and flea markets lure many of us in search of fresh air and bargains. The convivial outdoor ambience darkens, however, when live animals are offered for sale or barter. Caged and in many instances poorly fed, abused and/or neglected, these unfortunate amphibians, birds, fish, mammals and reptiles suffer enormously and pose risks to human health and safety. Born Free USA is dedicated to ending these types of sales. Our video, “No Bargain for the Animals: Swap Meets and Flea Markets,” illustrates some of the deplorable conditions under which critters are sold. Watch the video and you’ll become inspired to help ban the sale of live animals at flea markets and swamp meets. You then can direct your local or state legislators to our model legislation and, before long, you’ll have made a positive difference!

SEE: Follow Our Trapping Investigation on YouTube

PetSupply_4_033111.jpgBorn Free USA earlier this month unveiled its landmark undercover investigation into the cruel and barbaric world of recreational and professional trapping for the fur industry. Since we announced “Victims of Vanity” and shared online its accompanying photo galleries, investigator notes and tips on how you can get involved in the anti-fur movement, each week we have released a trapping video on YouTube. The most recent includes footage of a non-targeted cat having been fatally trapped. Our household companions mean so much to us — how can we let this kind of thing happen? Please become engaged in whatever way you can against the trapping industry, and help us in our efforts by making a one-time donation or — for free! — subscribing to our YouTube site.
