Help ban goldfish as prizes from the NC State Fair!
Fish are living, feeling, intelligent creatures who have specific needs for proper care. They should not be given away to people who may not realize they require more than just a bowl of water to stay healthy.
Please read the article below about all the reasons why it is cruel to offer them as prizes - as if they were objects instead of sentient beings! - and then sign this petition to support a ban on allowing them to be given away at the NC State Fair.
For extra effectiveness, please also go directly to the Fair website to share your comments directly: http://www.ncstatefair.org/2017/ContactUs.htm
Thank you so much for caring!
