Please inform both entities that fish are complex, sentient beings who deserve better than to be doled out as trinkets. Ask them to cancel this portion of the event, then forward this alert far and wide!

Fundraising organization Kiddo! has admitted that it plans to hire California Carnival Company to supply entertainment again for the organization’s annual Mill Valley carnival, which is scheduled to take place May 23 through 26. The problem is that California Carnival Company has a history of including “Fish Game” booths—in which goldfish are given away as prizes—in its entertainment package! Goldfish require a sizable tank, climate control and filtration, regular cleaning of aquariums, and ample enrichment. Most “prize winners” are hardly prepared for such a commitment, and the animals suffer as a result. PETA asked Kiddo! and California Carnival Company to do away with animal giveaways, but to no apparent avail. We need your help now!

NS& e-mails sent. I went to this carnival back on the day ~ I never knew that live animals (yes, they ARE animals) were given away as prizes. Most of these animals never make it as far as *home* and those that do die.
We got the Fireman's Picnic and the Hartford Fair ~ hey, those are BIG events where I live ~ to stop giving away fish and hermit crabs.
