Animal charity Animal Tracks, which helps exotic animals that were rescued from the illegal pet trade (often the victims of abuse or severe mistreatment), has partnered with a few high-profile metal musicians in order to raise money and continue supporting exotic animals. You can view what they have for sale on the website, but there’s something for everyone, from a Queens of the Stone Age signed guitar to drum gear signed by Lamb of God drummer Art Cruz, an M. Shadows-signed copy of The Stage and more, including guitars, posters and clothing.
You can read further about Animal Tracks via their website and also via their stated mission:
“Animal Tracks was founded in 2002. Stacy took over as Executive Director in 2008, maintaining its “woman-run” business status, while also making it a Non-Profit. Under her guidance, Animal Tracks has rescued, or taken in well over 100 exotic animals. Many of those animals are from the illegal pet trade and have lived through horrible conditions or abuse. She knows each animal intimately, their personalities, likes, and dislikes, but most importantly what each animal needs to thrive individually.
“Inspired by Jane Goodall and David Attenborough, Stacy has built a solid foundation for the staff and volunteers. This foundation is based on a few simple principles. First and foremost, let them be the animal they are. No animal is forced to do tricks or anything they don’t want to do. Second, you exist in their world as they do yours. So, learn how they communicate and speak their language. Finally, understand all animals can experience trauma. Much like humans, healing takes time and care.
“100% of the proceeds from this auction goes directly to Animal Tracks for animal care.”
