Post Reminders About Keeping Cats Indoors

When left to wander around the neighborhood, cats are vulnerable to many life-threatening dangers such as diseases, parasite infestations, starvation, and attacks by humans and other animals, just to name a few. Go to the General section of Nextdoor and remind your neighbors never to let cats outside unattended.

Found a Lost Animal? Post the Info on Nextdoor

Nextdoor offers a page dedicated to lost and found animals. Check out PETA’s resources regarding what to do if you find a lost animal and what you can do to find your lost dog or cat. Be sure to share these resources with your neighbors as well.

Recommend Vegan Businesses in Your Area

A personal recommendation goes a long way to promote vegan businesses. Many people may not know that they can find delicious vegan food, businesses that sell cruelty-free cosmetics, and stores that offer animal-free clothing right in their own town. Go flood the Recommendations page with suggestions.

Promote a Mini Neighborhood Library Filled With Animal Rights Literature

Mini libraries are a great way to add a little color to our sidewalks. Fill the ones in your neighborhood with animal rights stickers, pamphlets, and even a copy of Animal Liberation that you don’t mind parting with. Organizations like Little Free Library can help you build or buy your own mini library. Take photos and let your neighbors know where to come check out the goods.

“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
