Following talks with PETA, Polyram Plastic Industries—which had previously sponsored the Hadi Shrine Circus in Evansville, Indiana—made the compassionate decision to support only animal-free entertainment going forward! The company decided to separate itself from the cruel circus after learning that it’s among the last remaining shows still exploiting wild animals, who are confined to small crates, kept in shackles, and deprived of any semblance of a natural life. Hundreds of venues and dozens of communities across the country prohibit or restrict animal acts, and several Shrine clubs have nixed their animal circuses. Please join us in urging the Hadi Shrine to get with the times by leaving animals out of its circus.
