Urge U.S. Postal Service to Ban Live Animal Shipments!

Each year, countless fragile chicks, ducklings, and even reptiles are shipped nationwide by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). Many of these animals are injured or killed when packages are delayed, roughly handled, dropped, crushed, or left in extreme temperatures. Last summer, 1,000 baby chicks were found dead during 105-degree weather at a mail-processing plant in Louisville, Kentucky. While the USPS currently prohibits the shipment of most live birds (excluding day-old poultry), the agency is now considering relaxing this restriction and allowing the shipment of any adult bird weighing up to 25 pounds! This means that countless more animals would suffer and die in transit. The USPS is currently seeking public comment, and your voice is needed!

Please use the form below to urge the USPS to ban ALL live shipments of animals. Be sure to include your mailing address in the letter, and do not change the "Live Animals "subject line (otherwise, your comment may go unread). Please also share this alert widely!
