In news recently released by the circus company, Ringling Bros., they announced they will be ending all traveling acts that involve elephants by May of 2016. This statement came as a surprise as they had already made plans to end this act over the next couple of years. The Humane Society of the United States applauds the action by Ringling Bros., as a step towards positive change in the organization. Donating your car to charity is one way to help and support such organizations to protect animals.

The Humane Society of the United States

One of the largest and most effective organizations to protect animals, the Humane Society of the United States has been fighting for the rights of more than 100,000 animals each year by providing care and services. Giving education and training for local organizations is another way The Humane Society works to protect all animals. Also, The Humane Society battles animal cruelties like animal fighting, puppy mills, seal slaughter, wildlife trade, and many other harsh treatments of animals, pushing for a transformation in the U.S. and in other parts of the world.

More About Elephants

Although only a small amount of animals will be affected by the announcement of the Elephants retirement by Ringling Bros., it is viewed as a very symbolic gesture and should help continue the trend of being gentle and kind to all animals, no matter their size or monetary value.

A traveling show for wild animals can be a very difficult life, with exhaustive training, and confined living conditions. An elephant performs with the assistance of a bullhook which is a cross between a fire poker and a baseball bat that the handler uses to help control them. In California they are looking to ban the use of such implements, and are getting close to making it law.


Ending live-animal entertainment at places such as Ringling Bros. that encourages any mistreatment of animals is the goal of The Humane Society. Although there is still a long way to go in the protection of animals, every animal saved from cruelty is one step closer to a more gentle and kind world for both animals and humans.
