Make Your 2013 Resolutions Animal-Friendly

Posted by at 4:44 PM | Permalink | 1 Comment


Out with the old and in with the new! New Year’s resolutions are all about the chance to start over and do things differently. You have an opportunity to make this year count for animals by dedicating one of your resolutions to helping them. Pick one or all of these resolutions and you’ll be on the right track to a compassionate year:

Go vegan. What better time than the start of a new year to turn over a new leaf and go vegan? Going vegan is the most effective choice that you can make for animals, the environment, and your health. With so many delicious and meatless alternatives available, there’s never been a better time to make the switch! Check out our free vegetarian/vegan starter kit, packed with tips and resources to help you make the transition. Not quite ready to go vegan? Even cutting back on your meat intake one day a week is a step in the right direction!

Do your spring cleaning early. Get a head start on spring cleaning this year! Dedicate a weekend to cleaning out your closet of all fur, wool, leather, and exotic skins and be sure to purge your kitchen and bathroom of all products that were tested on animals. Buy products that are cruelty-free to make sure that our furry friends have a good 2012 too. Request PETA’s free cruelty-free shopping guide to have on hand next time you’re at the store!

Donate to help animals. By making a generous donation right now, ] you’ll be strengthening PETA’s vital work for animals and helping us ensure that 2013 is an even better year for animals than 2012.

Promise to spend more time with your animal companion. Make sure Fido has a good New Year, too, by promising to take him or her on long walks and spend extra time playing. Even if you don’t live with a companion animal, you can make a world of difference to an animal at your local animal shelter. Even just spending just an hour of your day on the weekend would mean the world to the dogs and cats at the local shelter!

Get active. Sign up for PETA’s Action Team! By joining, you’ll be on the forefront of PETA’s groundbreaking campaigns. You’ll be able to participate in protests and outreach events in your area and will be given the opportunity to lend your voice to the animal rights movement. From arm-chair activism to leading protests against Ringling’s cruelty, everybody’s unique talents for helping animals fit in on the Action Team!

These are just five animal-friendly resolutions, and there are plenty more! Leave a comment below telling everyone how you are going to be a friend to animals in 2013.

    Love these! My resolutions for 2013 are to take my vegetarianism to the next level (90% or more vegan – try to make as many months as possible 100% vegan), spend more time with my three companion cats, etc. These are right on target!
