Award winning film and TV legend Ed Asner​ is one of more than a dozen celebrities, from the entertainment industry, who feature in ADI’s new 3-minute short film, ‘The Reluctant Entertainers’, calling for an end to circus misery; to be launched on the same day – follow Animal Defenders International​ on Facebook for updates. Over 30 countries have ended circus suffering – make the US the next!

Contact your Representative to sponsor TEAPSPA, and if they have questions, ask them to with meet with the ADI team Mon/Tue March 27/28.
