Jiffy Lube Puts the Brakes on Ringling Promotion

Jiffy Lube

Oil’s not the only thing they’re changing at L.A. Jiffy Lubes. After learning that Ringling beats and whips animals behind the scenes (among other things), the prez of the chain’s SoCal operations has promised us that the Jiffy Lubes in the greater Los Angeles area will no longer give away free Ringling tickets with the purchase of an oil change.

That’s one way to stick it to those dip sticks at Ringling!

  • Maria Zoltek says:

    Thank you sooooo much jiffy lube for giving the animals a voice. These are amazing creatures and need to be treated as such not exploited. I will only use Jiffy Lube now for all oil changes and will tell everyone I know. Thank you again for a step in the right direction for the elephants.

  • Mel says:

    Way to go Jiffy Lube. Lets put that stupid abuse factory called Rigling Bros out of business. Elephants and all the other animals deserve a lot better than to be whipped and beaten by stupidity employed by that circus. They don’t care about anything. Glad you do Jiffy Lube

  • P Bausch says:

    Thanks Jiffy Lube! You will keep my business!!! I think it’s awesome that you will not support this animal abuse.

  • Timothy says:

    Thanks Jiffy Lube! Hopefully others will take notice as well and boycott Ringling Bros.

  • Molly says:

    Thank you Jiffy Lube for doing the right thing.

  • Shawna LaRee Klema says:

    Thank you President of Jiffy Lube!! Caring at the corporate level is where it starts and with a high profile chain such as yours I believe it really sends a strong message to middle America. Maybe you will inspire other such sponsers to do the same. Kudos!!

  • Edward says:

    It says in the article that it is only for the Los Angeles area. That does not mean all Jiffy Lubes will stop giving away tickets. Please read the article more carefully next time.

  • lynne says:

    On behalf of the elephants tigers lions monkey dogs forgive me if i’ve forgotten any furry friends. I will be leafletting when the circus hits Austin !!! Thanks for doing the right think Jiffy Lube!

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    Jiffy Lube should give away free tickets or discounts to amusements that do not include animal acts. Some suggestions for Southern California would be Discovery Science Center Bowers Museum Los Angeles County Museum Of Art family Sundays etc. Thank you Jiffy Lube you will be getting my business!!

  • Iris Block says:

    Go Jiffy!!!

  • Lindsey says:

    GREEEAT!! Anything helps when it comes to such a huge issue such as this. I think I’m going to do some research to see what other companies give out free tickets and let them know the truth. We have to stop the suffering of these creatures.

  • Brien Comerford says:

    The masses are gradually learning that circuses are inhumane atrocity exhibitions.

  • Francisco & Isaac Martinez-Alvarez says:

    Well as a small thank you from now on I’ll use Jiffy Lube ONLY for my oil changes! And will spread the word of the good deed you’re doing….

  • Laura says:

    Excellent choice Jiffy Lube. I will recommend you to friends and family.

  • Cyndi says:

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW thanks Jiffy Lube..lets start a domino affect to other companies Thanks PETA

  • Ava says:

    I completely agree with all of the comments above. I’m sick of people who use the argument of “They’re JUST animals. People are more important”. We should fight for human AND animal rights EQUALLY. Everyone deserves a chance at a happy and healthy life.

  • Kathryn R. says:

    I’m so glad to here that about Jiffy!! Let’s all pray that one day these beautiful creatures will never be ripped away from their families again! They are one of the most family oriented animals on earth! They are beautiful and deserve all the love possible.

  • Jessica Quadrel says:

    I think that its our responsibility as Americans and humans to boycott all circuses who exploit animals. Circuses are like battles in the gladiator days. We cannot sit back and enjoy this exploitation at the disadvantage of helpless animals. These are elephants one of the most majestic creatures on the planet. How did they become the laughing stock at shows? I can honestly say that my children will NEVER go to a circus.

  • Susan T says:

    Right on Jiffy!!! And thanks for caring about the magnificent Elephants! Sooner or later the “freebies” will disappear and the remaining bottomfeeders of society the ones who wouldn’t recognize animal cruelty if they walked right into it and became victims themselves will stumble one step up and find something else to amuse their pathetic selves and spawn.

  • Joanna says:

    Great News…Time to go and get the oil changed!
