Join the Animal Defenders of Yuma for our 11th annual peaceful protest against the abuses suffered by circus animals. We will be meeting at 6:30 PM in the vacant lot at the corner of 2 1/2 E and Palo Verde, just outside of the Yuma County Fairgrounds. Demonstration signs will be provided.
Animal Defenders of Yuma, a local animal welfare organization, has been protesting the Jordan World Circus every year since 2007. In addition to the circus, we maintain a Facebook page and operate an email list that alerts members to urgent animal welfare issues.
