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 2020:

1. Become an animal-friendly traveller

Each year, over 500,000 wild animals are trapped, confined and forced to live and behave unnaturally to entertain tourists. As tourists, we have the power to help stop this. By making animal-friendly choices on holiday, you can reduce the demand for wild animals in entertainment.

How you can help:

2. Take a stand for animals in farming

We’re moving the world to protect the 70 billion animals farmed each year around the world. Inhumane slaughter and live export are just some of the animal welfare issues we’re campaigning to improve. You can influence debates that will shape the future of farming.

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 bushfires, heatwaves, floods and cyclones. Make a plan so you’re there when your best friend needs you most.

4. Help us protect more animals in need

In 2019, our supporters helped protect millions of animals around the world. This ranged from helping save animals affected by natural disasters and supporting change for animals trapped in the wildlife tourism industry, to funding ground-breaking investigations and research that exposes animal suffering.
