After PETA received complaints about Hallmark cards featuring trained captive chimpanzees, we contacted the company to request that it pull all cards featuring chimpanzees and pledge never to use any great apes outside their natural habitats again. Hallmark has failed even to discuss the issue with PETA and glosses over our concerns.
Exotic animals forced into the entertainment industry are trained through domination, punishment, and fear. They are taken from their mothers as infants, denied everything that is natural and important to them, and subjected to years of extreme confinement, abusive training, and confusing performances.
Please take a minute to send a message to Hallmark to urge executives to drop greeting cards featuring trained chimpanzees and orangutans and never to use great apes outside their natural habitats in any future greeting cards. To contact Hallmark, please use this form.
Please forward this message to friends, family members, and coworkers.
Thank you for everything that you do to help animals!
This is an ongoing pledge that should be fulfilled as often as possible.
