Alliance For Animals ~ Wisconsin’s voice for animals since 1983

Adopt Don’t Shop

Did you see our ad in the Pets section of the Wisconsin State Journal? If so, maybe you are looking for the perfect companion and don’t know where to start.

Over four million animals are killed by shelters in the United States each year. You can personally impact this number by adopting an animal from a shelter. While shelters usually have puppies and kittens, consider adopting an older animal, as you will be spared the hassle of toilet training, chewing, and other behaviors. In addition, shelters are often able to give you information on an animal’s temperament. Alliance For Animals is not an animal shelter, but here are some of our recommendations of places to look.

We Celebrate the End of Elephant Acts in Dane County

After eight years of handing out fliers while braving the bitter cold and howling winds, the day finally came. On Sunday, February 16, Alliance For Animals and animal activists from the area both protested the Zor Shrine Circus and celebrated the last elephant show in Dane County with a toast. As a certain astronaut might say, That’s one small step for the end of exotic animal acts, and one giant leap for elephants. Thank you all who worked on this for so long, and for those who came out on a cold day.
