Protest the Animal Cruelty at the HLS&R


Promote Compassion and Veganism

Everything you hate about the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is back for its 2018 incarnation.  HLS&R continues to promote & glorify cruelty to animals!   All rodeo events including the carnival & concerts are part of the exploitation & abuse of nonhuman animals.

Please come out and join HART & other compassionate Houston animal activists for this educational outreach effort.  Some posters will be provided, but feel free to bring your own & a few friends!
