Four Easy Ways to Help Animals When You Travel

PETA's Vacation Animal Tax

One of the most heartbreaking parts of traveling away from home is spotting a homeless or neglected animal and being unsure how to resolve the animal's plight. People shouldn't ever turn their backs when animals need us most, so here are few simple ways that you can be prepared to help animals when you travel:

1. Look up local animal shelters and veterinary options in an area before you leave for your trip. Jotting down a few quick phone numbers could well save an animal's life!

2. Pack PETA literature about companion animals for your journey. Leaving a leaflet in a hotel reading room or coffee shop may inspire locals to take new action for animals in their own town.

3. Ask your hotel or resort staff which animal shelters or local animal groups are active in the area. Many animal organizations are happy to have vacationing volunteers help with desperately needed services.

4. Consider paying PETA's special Vacation Animal Tax before you hit the road!

For more than 30 years, PETA has worked to save countless animals in the U.S. and around the world from natural disasters and human cruelty. Your Vacation Animal Tax will directly support PETA's Animal Emergency Fund, a vital program that has made it possible for PETA to respond quickly whenever and wherever animals are in crisis.

Your "tax payment" today will help us save animals' lives by providing local media, government officials, and the public with crucial information about how to safeguard animals and will make it possible for PETA to respond quickly when tragedy occurs—from coordinating rescuers, veterinary care, and experts, when possible, to acting as a clearinghouse of information about what concerned people can do to help.

Please take a moment to support PETA's critical work for animals, both before and after crisis strikes, by contributing your own Vacation Animal Tax right now.
