API is a proud sponsor of the Design Against Fur poster contest. The 2006 theme was “Protect Seals.” Posters poured in from around the globe as students created striking visual designs speaking out against the cruelty of Canada’s commercial seal hunt — one of the largest and most brutal slaughter of marine mammals on earth.
At API, we’re always looking for nifty ways our supporters can express their affinity with API's goal of fighting abuse and exploitation of animals. We are pleased to announce our latest endeavor, the “Grand Opening” of our Café Press store. Here animal lovers can find one-of-a-kind clothing items and accessories that not only look stylish but support API through a donated percentage of all sales.
Finding a home for mink proving difficult
Residents express concerns even though proposed new site is within an agricultural zone

Nicole Paquette, API’s Director of Legal and Government Affairs, and Assemblymember Lloyd Levine, discuss the issue of forcing exotic animals to perform for entertainment and nationwide legislation to protect animals such as elephants from the abuse inherent to the circus.

Sacramento County was the last in California to allow the practice of “pound seizure” — allowing the sale of animals from the county shelter to research facilities. Last night, the Board of Supervisors voted to end the practice after more than twenty years of protest from animal groups, including the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights and API.
