Make an Impact! Advocate for Animals in Need.

There are many ways to advocate for animals, but the most important item to remember once you’ve decided to be a voice for animals is to get engaged and do it effectively! Here are some of the typical ways that we can advocate for animals:


  • Let your elected officials know your views on an important animal issue:
    • Schedule a meeting
    • Call their office to share your opinion
    • Email their office to ask them to support an issue
    • Write a letter to the editor to your local news outlet about an animal welfare matter

Consider your sphere of influence to expand impact of your voice for animals


  • Do you know any influential members of the community who can join you in advocating for animals?
  • Do you have any other friends or family in key legislative districts who can help support an issue with their representatives?
  • Do you have any involvement or affiliations with organizations or groups that may be able to have an impact?
  • Do you have or know anyone who has any celebrity connections who have taken actions for animals?
  • Do you have any business connections within the area?
