Do you believe animals deserve basic legal rights?

DO YOU BELIEVE ANIMALS DESERVE BASIC LEGAL RIGHTS?

Deprived of legal protection, animals are defenseless against exploitation and abuse by humans. Through the Animal Bill of Rights, the Animal Legal Defense Fund is working to show Congress a groundswell of support for legislation that protects animals and recognizes that, like all sentient beings, animals are entitled to basic legal rights in our society.

More than a quarter-million Americans have already signed the Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Animal Bill of Rights. Sign on your support and speak out to your lawmakers today!

A Petition to the United States Congress

I, the undersigned American citizen, believe that animals, like all sentient beings, are entitled to basic legal rights in our society. Deprived of legal protection, animals are defenseless against exploitation and abuse by humans. As no such rights now exist, I urge you to pass legislation in support of the following basic rights for animals:

The Right

of animals to be free from exploitation, cruelty, neglect, and abuse.

The Right

of laboratory animals not to be used in cruel or unnecessary experiments.

The Right

of farm animals to an environment that satisfies their basic physical and psychological needs.

The Right

of companion animals to a healthy diet, protective shelter, and adequate medical care.

The Right

of wildlife to a natural habitat, ecologically sufficient to a normal existence and self-sustaining species population.

The Right

of animals to have their interests represented in court and safeguarded by the law of the land.
