Sanctuaries and Shelters
Vegans do not use animals as entertainment or pay others to see animals in captivity, performances or otherwise being exploited. Animals strive best in their own natural habitat surrounded by everything they need for health and happiness, including their family and loved ones. You can still have contact with animals without exploiting them by visiting your local animal sanctuary and volunteering to help. Click below for more information:

Vegans don't buy animals as animals are not things. Of course we must look after the animals we already have, those we bought before going vegan, and those who have been abandoned. It can be wonderful to share your home with a companion animal and there are thousands of animals in local shelters who need a good home. Click below for more information.
