Take Action

  • Everyone has something to offer.

    There are a variety of ways you can assist us!

    Artists, photographs, people to attend hearings/meetings related to trapping, writers, collaborators, coordinators, computer gurus, items to sell, grant writers, fundraising, event invites and participants.

    People can always help by keeping their eyes and ears open to trapping and notifying us. Pictures are very helpful.

    Letters to the editor spread the word and increase public awareness about trapping. We are more than glad to review your letter before you submit it.


    Your donation to Trap Free Montana helps us advance the education, science, economics, cultural and societal beliefs in support of wildlife, and their intrinsic value contrary to the unnecessary, unethical, inhumane, indiscriminate, and highly unregulated act of trapping. Donations are tax deductible.

    Become a sponsor of one of our multiple billboards, i.e. "End the Suffering", "Indiscriminate Victims", "See the Traps, Neither Does She", "Protect Beaver", "Killing Wolves Harms All", and "Trapping Hurts All", located along major highways across Montana furthering public awareness and support against trapping, and promoting coexistence, responsible stewardship, and trap free public lands.

    Contribute to our assistance with the medical expenses for the indiscriminate victims of trapping, including dogs and cats, and our efforts to prevent these from happening. We also offer reward funds for information leading to the arrest and conviction of poachers, especially of carnivores, and involving any illegal acts of trapping.

    Donate to our non-lethal projects to help mitigate conflicts and in lieu of lethal trapping and killing.

    Provide financial assistance towards our litigation costs resulting from our inability in other ways to stop the war declared on wolves originating in the 2021 Montana legislature and then the Governor Gianforte appointed Fish & Wildlife Commission. We have our own case in Montana and are a plaintiff in Idaho.

    Please become a monthly donor. Just a $10 per month commitment from many can go a long way in helping the animals!

  • S.1081 - Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act

    RE: S.1081 - Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act

    Our National Wildlife Refuges number over 500. 

    A guiding principle of the National Wildlife Refuge System states:
  • S.1081 - Refuge from Cruel Trapping Act

    Our National Wildlife Refuges number over 500. These refuges are reported home to more than 700 species of birds, 220 species of mammals, 250 species of reptiles and amphibians, 1,000 species of fish as well as innumerable invertebrates and plants. The refuges are promoted to provide safe haven for 280 endangered species.

    Well over half of them allow trapping!

    Now where does trapping fit in to refuge, shelter, conservation, restoration and safe haven? It doesn't!
