campaign victories

fur trade

In 2021, we helped pressure Neiman Marcus, Oscar de la Renta, and Yves Saint Laurent to stop selling fur. Currently, we are working to end the sale of fur at Louis Vuitton.

Companion Animal protection

ACT championed and won a 4-year battle to end pound seizure in Dallas (the practice of selling dogs and cats from city shelters to research labs).

Every year, thousands of unwanted cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters or worse, suffer tragic deaths outdoors after being forced to fend for themselves. 

ACT helped establish SNYP in hopes of eliminating shelter euthanizations and reduce stray populations through pet owner education and providing reduced-cost options for dog and cat owners to have their pets safely spayed or neutered.

In 2022, ACT got a Dallas city ordinance passed banning the sale of dogs and cats in pet stores. Petland was selling dogs from cruel breeders instead of helping shelter dogs and cats who are already in need of forever homes. But not any more.
