Make a 2021 New Year’s Resolution to Help Animals!

In a year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re more than ready to say, “Out with the old, and in with the new!” Whether you saw us expose slaughterhouses and mink fur farms in 2020 for being breeding grounds for disease or were inspired by celebrities like NFL star Cam Newton and actor Alba Flores, the time to go vegan is now. The new year is the perfect time to adopt a resolution that will help animals. And the best part is we’re here to help!

This year, please make a New Year’s resolution to help animals and share it on Twitter with the hashtag #Veganuary. Encourage others to make 2021 count for animals by going vegan, buying only cruelty-free products, avoiding roadside zoos, and more.

Here are some examples to help you get started:

  • Did you know that every vegan saves nearly 200 animals annually? This year, I’m going #vegan! #Veganuary
  • After humans force animals to live in cramped, filthy cages, they often mutilate and even skin them alive—just to make cruelly produced clothing. My 2021 resolution is to refuse to wear any material stolen from animals! #Veganuary
  • This year, I’m buying only #CrueltyFree products. Animals are not ours to experiment on! #Veganuary
  • In 2021, I’m going to start doing outreach events for #AnimalRights. My goal is to get organized and active! #Veganuary
  • Roadside zoos are prisons for animals, so I resolve not to visit them! #Veganuary

If you’re looking for tips or literature to help keep you on track with your resolution, e-mail us at [email protected] with your mailing address, and we’ll send you tips and free literature!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
