    Information on Livestock Guardian Dogs and how they work.

    The organizations listed provide the work of petitions, legislation and public awareness. Who does animal testing? What products are cruelty free? How do we stop the shooting of pigs with exploding bullets just to see how quickly they die? How do we reach the people who make changes in our states and country's law? What can I do about how pigs are confined in factory farms?

The organizations on this page do those things in varying ways but all with a single dedication and commitment to the animals.

Your support in reading and signing petitions, making calls to voting legislators and yes, financial help too, can all make it a better world tomorrow.
