Stop Circus Suffering

Peru freed them. The rest of the world can too.

Urge Congress to pass a federal bill to ban wild animals in traveling circuses

Like all businesses, circuses change to stay relevant and profitable. The public increasingly chooses humane entertainment, and while attendance at animal circuses plummets, human-only circuses, like Cirque du Soleil, are thriving. There are now over 20 human-only circuses in the US, including some that previously had animal acts. A 2015 Gallup poll shows over 2/3rds of Americans are concerned about animals in the circus. Times are changing, yet some continue to insist upon cruel wild animal acts.

It’s time to end the cruelty.

Join ADI to urge Congress to pass a federal bill to ban wild animals in traveling circuses.

    I urge you to make this a federal Bill to ban all animals in circuses and traveling circuses and side shows and everything else they call them to protect these animals that will be extinct and they deserve so much better.
