A little while ago, we wrote about powerful advertisements that were designed to raise awareness about important social and environmental issues. But what about animals? They don’t have any way to raise awareness about the issues they face, so it’s up to us to help them out.

These advertisements address different types of issues, but they’re all about giving a voice to the voiceless. Most of us love animals, and yet we remain ignorant of or apathetic towards the abuse of domestic or circus animals or the extinction, poaching and over-harvesting of wild populations. If you’re an animal lover, consider putting your time or your money behind one of these noble campaigns!

There are lots of powerful animal ads out there, so if you’ve seen one that we missed, share it with us at the bottom of this post!
