Advocacy Groups in the North Texas Area
Animal Rights & Rescue is not the only group working to advocate against exploitation in the North Texas region. We have learned of the work of many of our fellow advocates and wanted to highlight the important work they are doing in our region, for the benefit of others. These groups include:
Animal Connection of Texas primarily supports single issue campaigns against some of the worst animal abusers in the State. They have demonstrated against the circus, the rodeo, slaughterhouses, cattle auctions, fur sales, and pet stores that buy from puppy mills.
