Tell Geico: Stop Supporting Rodeo Cruelty

GEICO Insurance is partnering with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA).

In a press release, GEICO Vice President, Ted Ward, said: "We are proud to be partnering with the PRCA and the exciting world of ProRodeo." Rodeos aren't exciting, they're exhibitions of animal cruelty, where animals are prodded, shocked, and spurred through events that cause them stress and physical injury.

Urge GEICO to stop sponsoring animal cruelty.

For more details on this campaign and rodeo cruelty, check out the SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness) GEICO Cruelty website.

      Geico brags about how it saves its customers money, however it does so through its lack of responsibility to those who have claims.

      A company that can spend as much as this one does on advertising certainly should act responsibly toward humans and animals.

      This petition is right - Rodeos, like Bullfights, are cruel to animals.

      Please see my petition exposing Geico's failure to care for an injured biker on the Outer Banks of NC after its customer hit the biker head on - on the highway's shoulder.

      Rodeos are cruel sports, I & my family wouldn't ever consider having Geico insurance, we don't want to support corporations without conscience.

      i was going to write how only men with small testicles are able to ride frightened, thrashing, tortured animals, because men with real ones would be concerned for their own welfare as well as the humane and kind treatment of the animal. but i won't. instead i will simply condemn the use of animals as entertainment...be it in rodeo or circus or ..... coercion and cruelty is never manly, it's sadistic. sponsors of sadism will not be using my money. it's so obvious, even a caveman can understand it.
