This little puggle spends his days lying on wire mesh in a brightly-lit "state-of-the-art" cube in a Petland pet store. No blankie, no mat, no toys -- no hope.

"Most of the important things in this world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."
           ~ Dale Carnegie

       There are so many protests and informational events coming up in the near future that we decided to start a calendar to post them all. If you have a pet shop protest or other event taking place in Wisconsin that you'd like to see added, please Email us the details for review. We must have a contact email for confirmation, and either an email address or a website URL for more information for people who want to participate. We also ask that you please read and abide by WPMP's policy for peaceful protest, as found in the Protesters' Pledge on our Peaceful Protest page.

       You are MORE than welcome to join any of the protests listed below! Please click on the "More Information" links for the details. Remember, dress for the weather, as you will be outside, and bring a sign or a poster if you can. If you don't have one, don't let that stop you -- there may be extras on-site, and your just being there is very important!

     For those of you who would like to become more involved for wildlife in Wisconsin -- did you realize that ANYONE can run for election as a Wisconsin Conservation Congress Delegate? The election will be the first item on the hearing agenda, and would be a great opportunity to get some non-hunter or trapper voices heard. An explanation of the Conservation Congress Delegate Election Process can be found starting on page 3 of the Meeting Questionaire.
