Who We Are

Founded in 1986, Animal Connection ofTexas (A.C.T.) is a non-profit animal advocacy organization made up of volunteers who are committed to ending the suffering, abuse, and exploitation of all animals.

Tortured Existence

Animals on stage, in cages, or on display are deprived of their freedom and happiness. Animals deserve to be free, and we’ll support liberation for every animal until the last circus, zoo, and rodeo is shut down.
