Retire Penned Up Circus Animals to Sanctuary

Target: Jodi Timms, Secretary of Peter Jolly’s Circus

Goal: Retire all of the animals used in Peter Jolly’s Circus to accredited sanctuaries.

A new investigation has revealed the deplorable condition animals endure in a popular circus. Animal Defenders International (ADI) has released footage of what happens to the animals of Peter Jolly’s Circus when they are not on stage.

In the winter months, animals are crammed into an enclosure so small that it is common for them to fight for space. In addition, many of the animals are tied up for extended periods of time. The ADI stated that some of them are tethered for 14 hours a day and on one occasion, they were tied up for 40 hours. Kashmir, a camel used by the circus, was held in his pen for six days without seeing sunlight or breathing in fresh air.

These animals are treated terribly and they should not have to endure another minute of it. Sign this petition and demand these animals are retired to an accredited sanctuary.


Dear Ms. Timms,

A new investigation led by Animal Defenders International (ADI) has been looking into the treatment of your animals. What was found was horrific.

In the winter months, your animals are held in a small enclosure and pens. This enclosure is so small that the animals tend to turn on each other for space. In addition, many of them are tied up for 14 hours a day. This is unacceptable. What is even worse is that on one occasion, the animals were tied up for 40 hours and a camel, named Kashmir, was held in his pen for six days straight. This is absolutely disgraceful.

Please consider retiring all of your animals to an accredited sanctuary where they can live the rest of their days happily among friends and in nature. If you truly care about these animals then you know this is what would be best for them.
