Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) started this petition to Elephant tourism industry

There is nothing humane about tourists interacting with captive elephants, including riding or bathing an elephant or participating in an up-close photo op – whether on an overseas trip or in the United States.

These attractions require the often-violent domination of elephants and a lifetime of misery for these highly intelligent, emotionally complex, and self-aware animals.

No elephant should have to suffer for someone's entertainment.

That’s why the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) wants your pledge to:

  • Never ride an elephant – in another country or at home.
  • Never pet, bathe, or participate in an up-close photo op with an elephant.
  • Never patronize places where elephants are made to perform tricks.

Sign this petition to show that you've taken the pledge. We’ll use it to convince business owners – and legislators, if necessary – to end the cruel exploitation of elephants for entertainment.

Then visit our “Take the Pledge!” page on MightyCause where you can link to our special Elephant Interactions FAQs sheet. You can also make a donation to support PAWS' work to protect captive wild animals, including the rescued or retired elephants, bears, big cats, and other animals we care for at our sanctuaries in California.

Share this petition and ask others to “Take the Pledge!”

Thank you!
