We Believe...

...in compassion, kindness, respect, unity, dialogue, community, commitment, strategic action, one world for all beings, neighbors talking to neighbors, and friends talking to friends.

And, like you, we envision a day when all animals are free to live their lives free from unnecessary harm and suffering. 

But change for animals will not happen unassisted. The elephants, tigers, orcas, bears, camels, dolphins, and other animals enslaved within the entertainment industry need our collective voice. They are counting on us to speak loudly and clearly on their behalf--to let the world know that they are sentient beings with families, feelings, and a desire to be free.

At CompassionWorks International, we provide the assistance needed to bring hope to those animals. We believe that by implementing professional, strategic actions within our communities, every one of us can be a beacon of light that spreads awareness about the pain and suffering that occurs inside the tanks and under the big tops of the circus industry.

Thank you for visiting our store and speaking for the animals. We salute your bravery and your compassion.
