Get Involved
  • Visit PETA’s Call to Action Page – tell major corporations like Chrysler, Coca-Cola and Alaska Air to stop sponsoring the Iditarod! – Click Here
  • Speak Up! Change starts on a local level; many people who go dog sledding for fun do not realize the conditions the dogs are kept in – we didn’t!
  • In many states and provinces in the U.S. and North America, elementary school children are taken on field trips to go dog sledding – encourage your child’s school to educate their students about animal welfare and opt for a field trip to their local animal shelter instead.
  • Use social media. Get involved in the conversation. Tweet using #SledDogsFilm and follow Sled Dogs on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • Adopt, don’t shop! Consider adopting a retired sled dog as they make wonderful pets.
  • Follow/Like From Sled Dogs to Bed Hogs on Facebook to learn more about adopting sleddies
