Why Animal Activist Support?

At In Defense of Animals, we believe that every single activist is needed to bring about animal liberation. That’s why we’re excited to offer the Animal Activist Support Line, an innovative new service for animal activists which includes supportive telephone and e-counseling, contacts for local and national activist resources, and referrals for psychotherapists who are sensitive to animal activists’ concerns.


All of our Support Line counselors have been trained in nonviolent communication and are passionate animal advocates themselves. Even if you only have a few minutes, we can help! Whether you need a momentary pick-me up or someone to listen in-depth. The Support Line is available to all animal advocates via our toll-free number, 1 (800) 705-0425, or by email at activistsupport@idausa.org.


There are lots of reasons to call the Animal Activist Support Line.

The Support Line is your “one-stop shop” for all things activist! Counselors provide resources from our Activist Resource List, which contains Meetup groups, workshops, webinars, videos, vegan therapist referrals, and books on effective activism.


The Support Line is part of our Sustainable Activism campaign providing emotional and spiritual support for animal activists via workshops, webinars, retreats, and blogs to ensure that activists can continue helping animals for the long haul.


Our goal is to help animal activists gain clarity on their missions, work effectively and efficiently, create successful and satisfying careers, balance activism with the rest of their life, and avoid or heal from burnout and trauma.
