millions of animals in the United States every year with your tax dollars

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
—— Mahatma Gandhi
Public lands belong to all of us and are the last refuge for many wild animals.
These beautiful animals should be nurtured and protected. Instead millions are exterminated in their homes at an outrageous rate by a cruel and secretive program of the U.S. government called Wildlife Services.
Last year alone this rogue program admitted to killing at least 1,681,283 native animals with brutal methods including aerial gunning, trapping and poisoning. Be a Guardian for animals. Let’s End the War on Wildlife.
