Can you help fund Kinship Circle’s investigative research?
Kinship Circle composes action campaigns that bring results. Supporters like
you take public outcry to the decision-making tables. Our past campaigns and
future goals require extensive research, investigation and materials
.

GOAL: $10,000
Any amount you can donate helps. We are deeply grateful for your support!

AMONG MANY VICTORIES FOR ANIMALS, KC CAMPAIGNS HAVE HELPED:
*   Expose a pet-killing dogcatcher and prompt his firing and subsequent
investigation. “Thanks to Kinship Circle’s help and publicity,” our source
writes, “We WON for the humane treatment of animals in our small town!”

*   Hurricane Gustav: Send volunteers to New Orleans to evacuate pets with their people.
*   Hurricane Ike: Coordinate volunteers to care for stranded animals.
*   Iowa Floods 2008: Rescue dogs, cats and even a few pigs displaced in the floods.

*   Network for funds and transport to ferry 8 sheep from a California
research lab
to their 1,000-acre refuge at The Kindness Ranch.

*   Persuade medical schools to drop live animal labs: New York Medical
College, Washington University School Of Medicine, Saint Louis University,
University of Rochester, University of Illinois

*   Give voice to Michael Vick’s dogs, who were spared, and push for maximum
penalties in federal and state cases.

*   Influence Congresspersons to support the Animal Fighting Prohibition
Enforcement Law,
which passed in 2007!

*   Lead to the cancellation of Camarillo, CA July 4th fireworks near the
Ventura County Animal Shelter, which traumatized animals.

*   Sway POM Wonderful pomegranate juice to cease all animal testing.

*   Craft letter campaigns and press materials for Senator Fontenot’s office
to pass the Louisiana Pet Evacuation Bill in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Cathy Wells, Sen. Fontenot’s aide at the time, writes: “We all know if it
weren’t for Kinship Circle’s campaigns to legislators, this bill would not
have had the success it did…”

Just a few months ago, Kinship Circle helped send Christopher Barnett to
jail for filing his dog Lucas’ teeth down to the bloody gumline. “Thanks to
Kinship Circle for notifying the wider animal advocate community to write,
email, fax or call principal contacts,” Emilie Bottiggi writes.

Your tax-deductible donation lets us address more animal cruelty issues in
