We need as many people as possible across the country to contact their Representatives and Senators on Wednesday, March 24, asking them to support the Traveling Exotic Animal & Public Safety Protection Act (TEAPSPA), to prohibit the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling performances. We need you to ask them to sign on as a co-sponsor when the bill is reintroduced this year.

How you can help in less than five minutes:

  1. Click on this link.
  2. Enter the first line of your address and zip code and click go! Your senators and representatives will pop up along with template letters that you can use.
  3. Fill in your contact details and hit send – feel free to include a personal message to the template letter, saying why banning the use of exotic and wild animals in traveling acts is important to you.

You can also message members of Congress via Twitter, Facebook, and call them by phone (talking points are included in the link above).

We need as many people as possible to take part on March 24, so that a message is sent loud and clear that it is time to stop the suffering of circus animals in the US.

Please watch for our e-alert and social media posts on March 24 – share them with your family and friends, urging them to take action as well.
