Take Action

Help us get killing traps out of New Jersey

New Jersey Senate Bill S179 would ban the manufacture, sale, possession, importation, transportation, or use of any trap that is a spring-loaded device that restrains an animal by capturing the foot, leg, or other body part, including an enclosed foothold type trap or any other type trap that uses a jaw, arm, bar, cable, or wire to grasp or pin the animal’s foot, leg, or other body part.

This is an exceptionally strong bill! Please contact your legislators and ask them to support S179/A3110. You can find your legislators here.
