VeggiePlace.com Event Details National Bird Day
Date: 1/5/2004 , Location: Worldwide
Join API and the Avian Welfare Coalition in its second annual National Day of Action for Captive birds by helping to educate the public about issues affecting captive birds and by asking Petco and PetsMart not to sell live birds in their stores.
There are many ways you can participate:
Hold a peaceful protest and leaflet in front of a Petco or PetsMart to educate their customers on why they should not support Petco or PetsMart so long as they continue to sell birds. Or drive to your local Petco and PetsMart stores and place flyers on the windshields of cars parked in the parking lot.
A reproducible Petco/PETsMART flyer is available from API at www.api4animals.org/images/BirdDayFlyer.pdf.
A variety of AWC flyers are available at www.avianwelfare.org/action/flyers/index.htm.
Write letters to Petco and PETsMART and let them know why you won't patronize their stores. Sample letter and contact information available at www.api4animals.org/doc.asp?ID=317.
Send a letter to the editor or Op-ed drawing attention to the plight of captive exotic birds in this country. Sample letters available at www.api4animals.org/doc.asp?ID=1391 and www.api4animals.org/doc.asp?ID=1392.
