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.

Letter to
GEICO CEO Tony Nicely
I was dismayed to learn about GEICO's partnership with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

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 stress and physical injury to the animals. It's surprising that a company which has adopted an animal as its mascot in advertising is proud to condone the mistreatment of animals.

I urge you to take a stand against animal cruelty and immediately end GEICO's partnership with PRCA.

Thank you.
