You can get active by volunteering for a local shelter, writing letters to the editor, getting involved with grassroots lobbying or joining a protest. While it's possible to be a solo animal rights activist, joining a group will plug you into the animal rights community, even if it's only through an email list. If you join a local group, you'll get to meet other local activists and get involved with local issues where you have the most impact.
