What we're about

Santa Clara County Activists for Animals is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to reducing and eliminating the suffering of animals and to raising community awareness of animal issues. Our main focus is Santa Clara County, but we also participate in campaigns outside the county. We are motivated by compassion — we seek to prevent cruelty to all animals, especially those used for food, clothing, and entertainment. Our website for more of our activities and actions: http://www.sccaa.info/

We are looking for motivated volunteers to help either directly and on the street or at your desk to help in this end. While doing so, it is hoped, that new friends and fun networking results in more action and partnerships on behalf of the animals.
