Be Kind to Animals – Don’t Eat Them

Be on the lookout for our newest Madison Metro bus ad, appearing February through April! It is because of your donations that we are able to purchase ad space pointing out that all animals deserve our care and respect. Thank you.

If you spot one and have a chance to snap a picture, send it to us at!

Thanks to a very generous donor our Be Kind to Animals-Don’t Eat Them ads will continue another two months!

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.
