A Better Tomorrow for Animals w/ RZA, Pigs, Sheep, Preventing Animal Cruelty & Torture (PACT) Act!

RZA's lifestyle company, 36 Chambers, and Embassy of Bricks and Logs, a contemporary vegan outerwear brand based in Germany, have teamed up with PETA for the launch of the Flying Guillotine Puffer Jacket, a new limited-edition down-free jacket made with recycled plastic bottles collected from the ocean.

"As we evolve as a people through technology and ingenuity, we have the ability through humane ways to fashion garments that not only serve our purpose but also more importantly abandon the unnecessary cruelty to animals," says RZA. The jacket is available for purchase at 36Chambers.com and EmbassyOfBricksAndLogs.com.

Victory! You Helped Pass a Historic Animal Cruelty Law!

On Monday, President Trump signed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act into law. This is truly historic. This is the first general federal animal cruelty law in US history, and this new, animal protection law will save lives.

More than than 867,000 of you signed this petition, and you made a difference in the world. You made this petition a success. In fact, each and every one of you that signed the petition should know that this petition was brought up on the floor of congress by Rep. Ted Deutch (Dem), the original co-sponsor of this bill. Your action helped to demonstrate that this bill needed to be a legislative priority. Thank you for doing your part to make this world a better place.

Thank you's are in order for all of co-sponsors of the bill, Vern Buchanon (Rep), one of the original co-sponsors of the bill, Senators Richard Blumenthal (Dem), Dianne Feinstein (Dem), Dick Curban (Dem), and Pat Toomey (Rep). However, a special thank you needs to go to Congressman Ted Deutch (Dem), the original co-sponsor of this bill who worked for years on the passage of this law.

Last, to all of the animal advocates that signed and promoted this petition, shared the petition, and made donations to help spread the petition.... I hope you know how important you were to the petition's success. I am truly grateful. We are all lucky to have people like you in this world. I hope that you know that this victory truly belongs to you.

Congratulations and thank you again to each of you.

Thanks to you, we’ve just secured a victory in our fight against Cricket Hollow Zoo in Iowa, where animals were caged with feces, rotted food, and dirty, standing water. The zoo even left live animals trapped in their cages with the decomposing bodies of deceased animals.

Now the surviving animals need your help again. Following our lawsuit, the zoo’s owners were barred from owning any wild animals. But now the zoo is attempting to block us from rescuing the animals, by filing an appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court!

We’re not giving up, especially when we’re so close to shutting down this inhumane zoo for good and saving these animals’ lives. We need you with us to see this case through. Relocating 300-plus animals is a massive undertaking, and we’ll need emergency funds for things like care and housing for the animals — as well as to continue pursuing necessary legal action against Cricket Hollow Zoo. Your donation today, worth double, can make a tremendous impact in our fight and in the health and wellbeing of innocent animals.

You see, after an incredible Giving Tuesday yesterday, we received confirmation that any additional gifts we receive by midnight tonight will be matched up to $10,000! This news comes at a critical time, given the fights we’re facing to protect animals.

If you missed yesterday’s Giving Tuesday deadline, today is your chance to double your impact for animals suffering in roadside zoos, puppy mills, research labs, and at the hands of abusers. If you already contributed but want to make an even bigger difference, you can do that too. Your donation by midnight tonight will have twice the impact on our fight against cruelty and injustice.

When you give now, you are giving animals a voice in our legal system and the chance to live healthier lives. Please make your gift before midnight to make twice the difference for animal victims of cruelty. They’re counting on you.
