Make a New Year’s resolution for animals
Animals can’t make New Year’s resolutions to transform their own lives but you can help stop their suffering.
Every year, billions of animals worldwide suffer needlessly. Chickens are factory farmed in appalling conditions, stray dogs are culled in misguided attempts to tackle rabies, and elephants are beaten so they will take tourists for rides.
Here are five great ways you can help us make a difference for animals in 2019:
1. Don’t support entertainment that harms wildlife
Your choices on holiday have the power to reduce demand for cruel attractions and save animal lives. Each year, over 500,000 wild animals are trapped, confined and forced to live and behave unnaturally to entertain tourists. Pledge to be an animal-friendly traveller and help end this cycle of cruelty. You’ll be demonstrating to travel companies and tour operators that there is demand for animal-friendly venues.
2. Volunteer for animals
Meet like-minded people, do something different and help create a world where animals live without suffering. You don’t need any experience to take part, just lots of energy and enthusiasm! The volunteering could consist of: beach cleans, helping at festivals, and other fun activities. Volunteer to join us today.
3. Make a plan to protect your pet in case of a disaster
In New Zealand, we love our pets. But sadly, not all of us know how to protect our pets in case of a disaster. New Zealand is prone to severe weather events including storms and earthquakes.

4. Help us protect more animals in need
In 2018, you helped protect millions of animals around the world – from disasters, in communities, on farms and in the wild.
You could help us achieve even more by pledging a monthly gift. Your donation could help save animals affected by natural disasters or support change for animals trapped in the wildlife tourism industry, or fund ground-breaking investigations and research that exposes animal suffering.
