4-5-6 … The ‘No More Glue Traps’ List

Published by PETA.

I bet it made your Monday to read how one determined woman helped countless small animals by convincing Gelson’s to pull glue traps from its stores’ shelves. (Really, how dang adorable is the mouse in that post? I could stare at her all day.)

Let us make your Friday too. Check out this year’s ever-growing list of companies, businesses, and agencies that have pledged to not use gruesome glue traps ever again, all because of the hard work of PETA and our supporters:



  • Notables at the Party Store: Lexington, Kentucky
  • AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) software company: Austin, Texas
  • Central Technical School: Toronto, Ontario
  • Manhattan building owners Richard and Hilde Basch: New York City
  • USPS facility: Baltimore, Maryland
  • JPMorgan Chase banks
  • American Eagle Outfitters stores
  • Virginia Beach School District: Virginia Beach, Virginia
  • Knox County School District: Knox County, Tennessee
  • Carroll County School District: Carroll County, Maryland
  • Princeton School District: Princeton County, New Jersey
  • Fashion Institute of Technology: New York City
  • Lanterman Developmental Center: Costa Mesa, Orange County, California
  • Ireland’s Four Provinces Restaurant: Falls Church, Fairfax County, Virginia
  • Local restaurant: Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida
  • Lowe’s: West Jordon, Salt Lake County, Utah (This store stopped using glue traps to catch birds—now if only the chain would stopping selling the traps as well.)
  • Circle Center Mall: Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana (birds)
  • United States Postal Service: Lexington, Fayette County, Kentucky (birds)

And we’re waiting for the final word from the following:

  • Costco: Gaithersburg, Maryland
  • L.A. Unified School District: Los Angeles County, California

I’m sure there are many more establishments that we haven’t heard about. Make PETA Files readers’ week by leaving a comment below about any businesses you know that have sworn off glue traps.
