He has now been taken by police and been seen by the Breed specialist who has classed my Staff cross as a Pit bull Type dog and have requested I sign him over for destruction. Simba has done nothing wrong, he just happens to look like an illegal breed. Me and my family are now taking this to court and if you could please sign this petition to show your support, we would be very grateful.

Sign the Dog Breeding Establishment Bill NOW! - The Petition Site

The Dog Breeding Establishment Bill was passed through the Irish government in July 2010. Almost a year and a half on and it has still not been officially signed in by the Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan. This is totally unacceptable.

Currently it is not illegal to have a puppy farm in Ireland. It is therefore not surprising to learn that Ireland is officially the puppy farm capital of Europe

STOP the barbaric treatment of galgos in Spain! - The Petition Site

  • Target: Spanish Ambassador to Ireland, Spanish Tourist Office Dublin, Spanish Government, Spanish Royal Family
  • Sponsored by: Animal lovers
The method of placing tubes or sticks in the mouths of galgos (Spanish greyhounds) to ensure they can't eat or drink and die a long slow agonising death over several days when they are no longer wanted or needed is barbaric and completely unacceptable to all civilised people. It has to be STOPPED!!!
Galgos are Spanish greyhounds used for hunting hares in the countryside. At the end of hunting season, they are often hung or this method, as seen in the photo, is employed because it costs nothing. It is SICK.

INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE RETURN OF BULLFIGHTS TO ORAN/ALGERIA - The Petition Site

Background from:
INTERNATIONAL MOVEMENT AGAINST BULLFIGHTS MOVIMENTO www.iwab.org
Oran, the second largest city of Algeria, has a bullring. The first bullfight took place in 1954 and during the French colonization held bullfights that ended with the independence of the country.
During the 90′s the bullring was used for political meetings, sports and theatre.Meanwhile over time the bullring became delapidated so the City Hall of Oran decided to repair it in 2010.It will be inaugurated in December this year and instead of using it for cultural spectacles they decided to reopen with a bullfight to boost tourism.
The media of Algeria begin to report these intentions in August. Meanwhile some of the articles mysteriously disappeared but the City Hall has this announcement in their website http://www.oran-dz.com/ville/actualite/article69.html .

We cannot allow that another country hosts bullfights. The bullfighting industry is desperate to export their bloody business to other countries because in their own countries is no longer profitable.

Please send letters of vehement protest to the authorities with CC to the newspapers and blind copy to IWAB. less

End the Sale of Animal-Tested Cosmetics in the EU - The Petition Site

Animal testing of cosmetics is an ugly business, especially when animals -- like rabbits, mice and guinea pigs -- are blinded and poisoned just to test a new lipstick or shampoo.

The European Union (EU) promised that from 2013, the sale of animal-tested cosmetics would be banned, meaning the EU would become the world's first cruelty-free zone. An EU sales ban would also force companies around the world to stop cosmetics animal testing or have their products removed from EU shop shelves. But now EU decision-makers are looking to delay the ban by up to 10 years, meaning more unnecessary animal testing.

Make sure the EU knows how the world feels about animal-tested cosmetics: Sign the petition demanding a Cruelty-Free EU in 2013.

No Funding to Dog Killers in the European Union - The Petition Site

  • Target: President of the European Parliment, Jerzy Buzek
  • Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

Romania is part of the European Union but the Romanian Government does not abide by European Union Animal Welfare law/regulations yet it is still being allowed to collect billions of euros from other EU taxpayers.

Killing millions of stray dogs in Romania benefits both the Romanian Government and the thugs that are labelled Animal Control.

For a country to be seen fit to join the EU they have to prove that they are managing employment levels, and on paper these dog killers are a positive statistic, because they are classed as employed.

We ask that you remove Romania from the European Union and stop all funding until they abide by EU Animal Welfare laws and regulations.

EUROPE HAS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MILLIONS OF STREET ANIMALS!

Tuesday, 9 August 2011 0 comments
EUROPA MUSS DIE POLITISCHE VERANTWORTUNG FÜR MILLIONEN STRAßENTIERE ÜBERNEHMEN

Right in the middle of Europe, millions of street animals are dying year in year out: in killing camps who call themselves animal shelters, or in “freedom” – of hunger, cold, diseases, poison.

Granted, you’ll find local laws forbidding the above – but often enough neither local authorities nor elements of the executive authorities do comply with the laws.

Even the most barbarian cruelties to animals go without prosecution because it is not avenged, as a rule.

On December 1st, 2009 the treaty of Lisbon (so-called EU reformation treaty) became effective.
The major agreement states that the Union and its member states have to take account of the well-being of the animals as feeling beings. But the ratification of this treaty does not automatically imply the end of the brute widespread deaths.

Therefore necessarily have to follow the words and deeds:


Petition

The European Commission and the Parliament have to enact a law which guarantees the animals right of living to their needs.

Thus we call for:

• Prohibition of installation and preservation of killing stations – whatever camouflage name they are given
• Prohibition of any killing of street animals which is not medically indicated – in case of medical indication
the use of painless euthanasia means
• Implementation of binding governmental vaccination and castration routines
• Implementation of (minimum) standards for animal shelters
• Review of hunting laws and regulations in being which allow for careless killing of pets and street animals
• Prohibition of abuse of street animals for laboratory experiments
• Implementation of laws for pet breeding and restrictions for commercial pet breeding
• Implementation of classes in animal protection in schools



Please forward this petition to continue as many friends and acquaintances and support our cause with your signature!
We will forward your signature to the Petition Committee of the European Community.

Urge the European Commission to suspend the export of animals to Turkey - The Petition Site

An investigation by Compassion and two other animal welfare groups has unearthed the terrible reality of the live transport trade between some EU states and Turkey. The investigation by Eyes on Animals, the Animal Welfare Foundation and Compassion in World Farming, looked into the export of bulls, pregnant heifers and sheep from a number of EU Member States to Turkey. The animals had come from Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece and Latvia with the distances travelled as far as 2,200km in some cases. Forty four animal transports were checked at the border between Bulgaria and Turkey and extreme welfare problems leading to severe animal suffering were discovered.

We are calling for the European Commission to suspend the export of animals to Turkey as a matter of urgency in order to prevent further suffering by EU animals.

This inhumane and unnecessary trade should be brought to an end altogether.

If you want send a message to the Commissioner:

To free Russia's Olympic bear and other aniamls kept caged on parked bus - The Petition Site





  • Target: Prime Minister of Russia Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin
  • Sponsored by: Rachelle VanDerWyst

(AP) ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — For two years, a 36-year-old bear who performed during the 1980 Moscow Olympics has been kept with other retired circus animals in a rusty old bus parked on the outskirts of St. Petersburg.

Animal rights activists say they receive only minimal care in their cramped and stinking cages.

Katya the bear was a longtime star of the Big St. Petersburg State Circus on Fontanka, where night after night she and another bear delighted children by riding motorcycles around the ring.

During the 1980 Summer Games, the bears were applauded by thousands at a ceremony opening the football competition in St. Petersburg, then called Leningrad. Katya also performed in two movies released in the 1980s.

Since her retirement in 2009, Katya and the painted bus on which she once toured with the circus have not left a parking lot near a busy highway. The aging bear spends the long hours jumping up and down in her cage and trying to crack the rusty metal railings with her chipped and yellowed teeth.

Dozens of other retired circus animals also live in the smelly cages placed inside the bus and a minivan parked nearby.

Some occasionally are taken out to accompany photographers to downtown St. Petersburg to have their pictures taken with children and tourists. Others never get washed or examined by veterinarians, animal rights activists say.

"They can't move normally and start going crazy," Zoya Afanasyeva of the Vita animal rights group said as she stood by Katya's sweltering bus on a hot summer day.

"Apparently they are being taken care of, but not more often than once a day, and this care is perfunctory because the smell here in the parking lot is unbearable," Afanasyeva said.

Klava the bear shares a small cage with Pasha the boar. Birds with atrophied muscles live next to cats that don't meow and stare straight ahead with pus-covered eyes.

Circus director Viktor Savrasov said the animals are cared for and Katya's fate would have been worse if her trainer had agreed to have the bear put to sleep.

"Whatever happened, she did not leave her," he said of retired trainer Natalya Arkhipova, who still visits Katya to feed her.

Animal rights activists have long urged Russia's government to strengthen animal protection laws.

Animals Petition: THE WORLD SAYS NO to the 2012 DOG SHOW to be held in ROMANIA! | Change.org

OVERVIEW

It is unjust and unfair to all the abused and brutally massacred strays in that country and we demand change of venue for the show now!

PETITION LETTER

NO to the 2012 DOG SHOW to be held in ROMANIA!

Greetings,

We read with dismay about Romania’s audacity to organize the 2012 Dog Show in the country, whilst Romania’s image as one of the cruellest nations towards its animals in general and strays in particular is spreading throughout the world like wildfire.

We strongly oppose the venue of such event in Romania, until Romania observes and strictly applies animal care rules for its strays, through spay/neuter/return programme, which proved to be so successful in other parts of the world and in Europe. We demand, hereto, the change of venue for the 2012 Dog show to a country where animals are treated with the respect they deserve.

Also, we expect the sponsors to exercise common sense and fairness in the matter, guard their image as responsible authorities and withdraw their support to the venue.

The Romanian Kennel Club cannot surely sustain its reputable breeding business image, while its “pure breeds” end up in the streets of Romania as strays, abandoned and thrown away like trash, so often literally into the dustbins.

Romania’s indifference to the world’s protests, letters, mails, petitions and its arrogance despite despicable cruelties towards the animals, puts off not only potential tourists but it enrages those who view the organizing of a Dog Show as an affront and its note on the official webpage, which reads “the wonderful world of dogs” a mockery in the true sense of the word.

The responsibility towards these animals should not rely solely on the public’s shoulders while the institutions and authorities by distancing themselves from the situation or on the other extreme end, by applying cruel methods of disposing of them, are keen on projecting a “perfectly clean image of their professionalism” to the world. This is offensive to all animal lovers and Romania’s tainted image of irresponsibility, apathy, condoning cruelty and total neglect of its animals/strays is spreading further for the whole world to see.

The barbaric methods of killing the strays, by shooting, clubbing, dumping them in deserted areas or cramming them into so called “shelters’ without adequate conditions where they are left to die of hunger or in many cases where they are brutally massacred inside the shelters, are unacceptable for an EU country. We expect Romania, as a European country, to strictly apply the only civilized method acceptable for stray population control, which is the spay/neuter/return programme and stop the cruelties towards its animals immediately.
Until this happens, THE WORLD SAYS NO to the 2012 DOG SHOW to be held in ROMANIA!
Sincerely,

[Your name]

Free Wenka and the Elders! - The Petition Site



57 years in a lab and still counting..........

Wenka was born to lab parents in 1954. When you think of the fifties, you think of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and James Brown. These performers have long passed, yet Wenka still sits in a concrete prison four decades later. Wenka is the oldest known chimpanzee in a U.S. lab, and during her lifetime she has been used in studies that include alcohol, oral contraceptives, aging, and cognitive studies at Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta. During her lifetime she has had her babies taken away, she has had cell-mates she has bonded with come and go, but for the most part she has had a sad solitary life.


The suffering of chimpanzees and other animals used for research is not limited to what goes on in actual experiments. Their day-to-day existence in a laboratory is traumatic in itself. Chimpanzees experience ongoing mental and physical suffering from the endless boredom, confinement, and fear and stress of daily laboratory life. Former employees at Yerkes say that Wenka suffers from severe stress. She can be seen rocking back and forth, and is said to have a 1000 mile stare. Wenka has endured enough abuse in the name of science. After five decades in a cell, and only a few remaining years left, Wenka deserves to be at peace in a chimpanzee sanctuary.

ALL Elders deserve retirement. Please help us make this happen!

Please help stop this violence! - The Petition Site


Please help stop this violence!

The perpetrators of these murders that take place in turkey cannot be found.

Even if the offenders are caught, the so called "punishment" given to them is a joke as they are released by paying only a few bucks (most of the time this fine is converted into an installment plan for the offender's convenience)

We, the animal rights activists are striving to change the turkey animal protection law 5199 that is not enough.

The researches show that the next victims of the offenders that commit these brutal crimes are the children, the elderly and the disabled, who make up the weakest links in the society.

Even though we obtained a promise from the government for the change of the current inadequate law 5199, for some reason this promise is yet to be fulfilled. The signatures will be a reminder for the Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

We are grateful for your signatures!

We hope these painful incidents will never take place on our planet again!

We the undersigned are asking the Thai Government to release Charlie into a rescue or sanctuary.

Charlie has no shelter, is chained up by the neck that is connected to a pole stuck in the ground. It is clear that the monkey lives chained to the ground with out shelter all the time. Guests are encouraged to trow beer bottles and objects at Charlie for entertainment, and many people did trow things at Charlie. And the staff were trying to make guests stay for dinner by telling us they were going to feed Charlie beer at 7pm for entertainment. Charlie had a rope around him, that people could not cross, other wise Charlie would attack and bite you. He looked very sad and angry and tried to attack many people near it, during the short time that I was with the monkey. A person told the staff they shouldn't treat a monkey like that. They replied and said "who cares its just a monkey".

Cowboy Cruelty: End Animal Abuse at the Calgary Stampede - The Petition Site

Target: Vern Kimball (vkimball@calgarystampede.com)
Sponsored by: Jo-Anne McArthur (We Animals) and Shannon Kornelsen (Empathy Unlimited)

Respecting tradition shouldn't be automatic, least of all when the tradition is cruel. When calf-roping, chuck racing and bull riding were introduced to rodeos, the scientific community had yet to confirm what our intuitions already told us -- animals feel fear and pain in ways startlingly similar to our own. But science has long since confirmed this, and it must now be understood that Canadians will not support animal suffering, least of all for entertainment. As Wayne Pacelle, the President of the Humane Society of the United States, explains: "With our new knowledge of how animals think and feel come new obligations in how we care for them."
Let's send a message to the Calgary Stampede and it's supporters: the abuse of animals for entertainment and profit is NOT acceptable. Let's leave this cruelty in the past where it belongs and create a Stampede ALL Canadians can be proud of.

Mom and kids beat kittens with baseball bat - The Petition Site

Target: Hernando County State Attorney
Sponsored by: People Against Animal Cruelty

At 8 weeks old, a small black and white kitten named Dexter is lucky to be alive after his owner and her two young sons took him to a neighborhood park and beat him and another kitten with an aluminum bat. Dexter is clinging to life, but his brother died as a result of his injuries.

Four children at a park in Brooksville, Florida watched in horror last Friday evening when they saw 24-year-old Wilana Joenel Frazier and her two sons -- one 8 years old and the other 5 -- torture the two small kittens.

Demand justice for the tortured kittens.

Frazier hit the kittens with a baseball bat and encouraged her children to kick the animals and throw them against a tree. Then they placed the kittens on a swing. When one of the animals died, the boys put him in a trash can and covered him with water.

By the time Linda Christian, a Hernando County Animal Services officer, arrived on the scene little Dexter had been rescued and wrapped in a white T-shirt by one of the boys who witnessed the event. Blood was running from the kitten's nose and mouth. Soon he began to have seizures from the trauma to his brain.

When Christian touched the kitten, he began to convulse. Christian told the St. Petersburg Times, "I thought I was going to lose him at that point. It was very upsetting."

Christian rushed Dexter to the Pet Luv Nonprofit Spay and Neuter Clinic and miraculously the small ball of fur has survived the first few critical days. Employees at the clinic care for him during the day and a veterinary technician has been taking him home each night.

Dexter is able to keep his medication down, is eating from a feeding tube and has started to walk a little on his own. But veterinarians are still very concerned about potential damage to Dexter's brain and are not sure if he will ultimately succumb to his injuries.

Rick Silvani, president of Pet Luv said, "All animals have a right to life, but a helpless, defenseless kitten... You don't know what to say. It's just incomprehensible." The group has agreed to cover the costs of Dexter's medical care.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office questioned Frazier, but she denied being involved and said her children were not part of the beating either. However authorities charged Frazier on two counts of cruelty to animals and two charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She is out of jail on $3,500 bail.

We need your help! Socking new video has come to light of Australian cattle being tortured in Indonesian slaughterhouses. The footage, captured by Animals Australia and reviewed by RSPCA Australia, shows terrified cattle being beaten, enduring intense pain and agonizingly slow deaths.

View it to the left, but please be warned, it contains graphic material.

Public outcry from this footage has been unprecedented and the Australian Government has put a temporary ban on live cattle going to Indonesia. BUT this terrible video is just one example of the cruelty involved in the live animal export trade. Many more animals are still suffering and this ban could be lifted in as little as six months.

Live animal export to ALL countries needs to end now!

Torture or mutilation of a vertebrate animal; killing a domestic animal

A person who knowingly or intentionally tortures or mutilates a vertebrate animal commits torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal, a Class D felony.
(5) "Torture" means:
(A) to inflict extreme physical pain or injury on an animal with the intent of increasing or prolonging the animal's pain
STARVATION: Experts in the animal care field can attest to the great length of time it takes an animal to starve to death, and the great pain and cruelty the animal is subjected to during this time. This is cruelty in its most severe form, and must be punished as such.
On October 23rd 2010 Evansville, IN police were summoned to a residence in the 1600 block of South Morton avenue following neighbor complaints of a foul odor coming from the home. Upon entering the home police discovered the decomposing bodies of 2 dogs locked in their kennels and another dog and puppy were discovered in the basement. It was determined that the animals had been deceased for at least 2 months due to starvation and dehydration. The owner of the home, Latiese Jovan Reed had not been seen by neighbors for several months as well her landlord reported that her utilities had not been paid for several months indicating that the home and animals had been abandoned by Reed.

Dog attached with machete- convict the man who did it - The Petition Site

Levy County, FL - A Golden Retriever was the victim of a vicious attack by a man trying to "punish" his brother-in-law for putting a small dent in his truck.

Behind the horrific act is Gary Denning of Trenton - the victim, a Golden Retriever.

The brutal incident occurred on May 19 - police responded to a 911 call placed by Gavin Denning after Gary Denning's daughter ran screaming from the home - terrified by her father's actions.

Gary Denning had attacked the dog with a machete - severing the innocent dog's spine. Though the dog was severely wounded, it was still alive when the police arrived to investigate.

From the Levy County Police release:

Denning stated that the dog was not aggressive towards him and he was getting the victim back for the small dent in his truck.

Denning's daughter (Juvenile) was in the residence when the attack occurred.The juvenile stated that she heard the dog yelping and attempting escape this brutal and unnecessary attack.The juvenile screamed to her father to stop and he turned with the machete in his hand, but didn't say anything to her.The juvenile stated that her father's behavior frightened her and she immediately ran out of the house.

Sadly, the injuries were so severe that the dog had to be humanely euthanized.

Hopefully the courts will punish Gary Denning appropriately for this horrific act of cruelty. His actions clearly show him to be a dangerous individual.

Gary Denning was arrested on domestic battering and animal cruelty charges.

Prevent the killing of thousands of dogs! - The Petition Site

  • Target: Roberta Anastase, President of Chamber of Deputies, Parliament of Romanian
  • Sponsored by: Bianca Arsene

Despite the fact that we are living in the 21st century and despite the the fact that it it part of the European Union, Romania%u2019s approach towards animals has remained disgustingly cruel.


For the past two decades, Romanian leaders have allowed hundreds of thousands of stray dogs to be killed.


Despite the fact that this mass killing was proved ineffective in extincting the dogs living on streets, despite the fact that the only programme that has been proved to be an effective solution to extincting stray dogs from the streets is sterilisation and despite the fact that euthanasia costs 62 Euro,while sterilisation costs only 15 Euro, the Romanian Commission of Public Administration wants to reintroduce euthanasia of dogs in Romania.


The majority of stray dogs are very fearful (after years of abuse from people) or friendly. A few of them, sick of being maltreated, hit or chased by people, dare to bite their attacker. These dogs are said to be dangerous. They are not! If no man attacks they are harmless. The majority of them are starving, ill or wounded and starved for affection.


At this point Romania is Europe%u2019s butcher and it does not deserve to be treated as a modern country, but as a criminal, unworthy of clearance.


A modern country would sterilise and vaccinate the stray dogs, then it would provide shelter for the aggressive dogs and it would release or arrange the adoption of those which do not present a public danger.


If you wish to prevent the mass killing of thousands of dogs, by urging Romania to sterilise and allow the stray dogs to return on the streets, please, sign this petition!

Stop the killing of a lion in Egypt in the name of "Tourism" - The Petition Site

Stop the killing of a lion in Egypt in the name of "Tourism" - The Petition Site

We, the undersigned, call upon the Egyptian Government to take action against the act of barbaric animal cruelty planned for the 25th June 2011 - to prevent Al-Essawy from killing a lion as part of a grotesque public spectacle, and to bring him to justice so that no animal can be harmed by him in the future .

Tourism to Egypt will certainly not be boosted by the slaying of an innocent animal but taking measures to prevent this action will show the world that these acts of sheer barbarity have no place in Egyptian society. We implore you to act and thank you for your attention.

News report - 25th May 2011 - DAQAHLYIA, Egypt: In an unusual move to revive Egyptian tourism, a young Egyptian man has announced he will fight an African lion.

Al-Sayed al-Essawy said he bought the lion, which weighs 280 kilograms (617lb), for 25,000 EGP (U.S. $4,200).

Al-Essawy, who lives in Daqahlyia governorate, has finished the iron cage and said he will train with the lion and will be prepared mentally to face the lion. He said this mental preparation takes more than five hours.

Al-Essawy said he will use an iron shield and dagger to defend himself but will kill the lion with his own hands. Full report here: http://english.youm7.com/News.asp?NewsID=340295

Killing a Lion with Bare Hands will NOT "Boost Tourism"! - The Petition Site

  • Target: Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt, Minister of the Interior,Prime Minister
  • Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

A man in Egypt plans to murder an endangered lion with his bare hands in an attempt to boost tourism.


Al-Sayed al-Essawy wants to hold the event on June 25, and has asked the Ministry of Interior to agree to hold the event in front of the Giza Pyramids.


He says can jump from the tenth floor of a building and eats woods and rivets. He also can drag cars by his teeth and fixes hooks in his skin to drag trucks and intends to shoot a movie about supernatural activities. There isn't anything outstanding about murdering an endangered animal.

Killing an endangered, innocent animal is no display of "supernatural abilities"- it is simply a freak show of animal cruelty. We ask the Egyptian authorities to stop this display of barbarism.

No more Elephants for Auckland Zoo - The Petition Site

No more Elephants for Auckland Zoo - The Petition Site

On May 25 the Auckland Council voted to approve the acquisition of two more elephants for the city's zoo to join Burma, the 28 year-old elephant who could live another 40 years of a miserable life in this zoo.

Elephants are highly intelligent, complex and self-aware individuals who have evolved for long distance living. In the wild they range tens of miles a day, live in large, tight-knit family groups, and communicate with one another at great distances. Yet zoos keep elephants in tiny exhibits of a few acres or less, where lack of movement and standing on hard surfaces cause painful foot infections and arthritis, the leading causes of euthanasia in captive-held elephants. The stress and boredom of intensive captivity results in abnormal behaviors such as repetitive swaying and head bobbing.

The process to bring the elephants to New Zealand includes a quarantine in their country of origin, flying them to the island of Niue for medical checks and more quarantine procedures before coming to Auckland. Yet Auckland's Mayor defends the Council vote by saying that the decision was important in helping Auckland become a major tourist destination and making the city the capital of events.

Despite strong opposition, the Auckland zoo pushed forward their plans, claiming that having elephants in captivity helps elephants in the wild and shamefully the City Council supported the idea.

Please ask the Auckland City Council and Auckland Zoo's director Jonathan Wilcken to cancel their plans to import two elephants and to better consider sending Burma to an elephant shelter overseas.

Voor betere wetgeving inzake dieren - For better legislation for animals - The Petition Site

Target - Belgian Government

This petition will be handed over to our government leaders for an adaption and activation of a good and adequat legislation for the animals and with in particular the following points :

  • Punishment of animal neglect, abuse, dumping,
  • Compliance with the ban on the trade of animals in stores, public places and stop the illegal importation with strict control and punishment
  • Heavy penalties and prosecution and implementation of verification body for daily operations and to ensure their implementation (ie extension of existing body or collaboration with independent newly created service)
  • Raising awareness of people that overconsumption leads to an even larger animal abuse and neglect of mainly small animals and livestock, consumption of meat annually saves many animals from cruel treatment and slaughter
  • Prohibition of vivisection and mill breeding
  • Finally see animals as living beings rather than as an article.

INTERNATIONAL COLLECTION OF SIGNATURES TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION TO STOP THE EXTERM - The Petition Site

INTERNATIONAL COLLECTION OF SIGNATURES TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION TO STOP THE EXTERMINATION OF STRAY IN ROMANIA AND OTHER MEMBER STATES OF THE EU.
The shocking images, combined with eyewitness accounts that reach us every day from Romania, disconcert us.
This group was founded with the aim of collecting at least 1.000.000 signatures from around the world through a single petition; signatures to be presented at the European Commission. This collection of signatures can help save, besides the Romanian animals, many other animals in the same situations in other EU member countries and serve as a warning to those who are on the waiting list for entry.

Le immagini sconvolgenti , unite alle testimonianze dirette che ci arrivano dalla Romania ogni giorno ci sconcertano. Questo gruppo nasce con lo scopo di raccogliere
almeno 1.000.000 di firme in tutto il Mondo, attraverso un%u2019unica petizione, firme che verranno presentate in Commissione Europea. Questa raccolta di firme può aiutare a salvare , oltre agli animali rumeni
moltissimi altri animali nelle stesse situazioni in altri paesi Membri della EU e servire da monito per quelli che sono in lista d'attesa per l'ingresso.


SE PREVEDE STRANGEREA de semnaturi internationale pe o petitie impotriva exterminarii cainilor fara stapan, in Romania si in alte tari, petitie ce va fi inmanata COMISIEI EUROPENE .

Aceste semnaturi pot salva viata animalelor, nu numai in Romania dar si in alte tari membre UE, si pot sevi ca avertisment tarilor care doresc aderarea la UE.

International Outrage at the Massacre of over 230 dogs in the municipal shelter, BOTOSAN, Romania - The Petition Site

  • Sponsored by: I.A.F.A.R.R., ALF-ARA ROMANIA, ANIMCORD.

I, as a human being and citizen of the world, can not find the right words to express my outrage about the massacre of strays at the city pound in Botosani, Romania.
It has become obvious already that local authorities in your country will do anything to slaughter as many strays as possible.
What has happened in your town is yet another example of how horrible the animals are treated in your country, and and there is no excuse for this barbarism.

We ask for a thorough investigation into this atrocity. We ask that the veterinarian Cristian Pencu be suspended without pay, for the entire duration of the investigation. We ask for all tests done to determine that ALL THE DOGS at the shelter were contaminated with Distemper, be released to the media.

We ask for the resignation of the Deputy-Mayor, Florin Ghiorghita, who gave the order to KILL all dogs, based only on two handwritten pieces of paper given to him by the veterinarian. We expect one of the most honest and severe investigation possible and we ask that all persons found guilty be punished in the most severe way, at the full extend of the law.
It is incomprehensible how those dogs who looked so well the day before their slaughter, have been deemed sick, incurable and killed without mercy.

We ask for the punishment of the workers, who physically harassed the people and obstructed the Police, to be fired immediately, and charged in accordance with the law.
It is in the interest of your country to finally APPLY THE LAW. Romania's and Romanian people image in the world has been stained, once again with innocent blood. Romania has become a shame for the EU.

http://www.stiri.botosani.ro/stire/28842/Performanta incredibila a medicului veterinar%3A peste 200 de caini eutanasiati in 2 ore!.html

I shall boycott Romania until the animals will be treated properly and until Romania will implement the only successful program to reduce strays population, recommended by the WHO, Capture/Castrate/RETURN....and will implement and APPLY real laws for the protection of animals...
In deed, Romania is the land of death for the animals...
I try to understand WHY the animals have been killed OVER NIGHT...? And why the local association DID NOT KNOW about the distemper epidemic in the shelter,...and why the dogs where OK one day before...
I still hope that a HONEST, THOROUGH and OPEN investigation will take place and ALL those responsible for this hideous crime against innocent animals, will be punished.

Thank you very much for your attention

Help Sentence Animal Abuser - Jennifer Petkus - The Petition Site


On Friday, April 29, 2011 Jennifer Petkus, owner and operator of the Thyme & Sage Ranch in Cazenovia, Wisconsin will be sentenced on multiple convictions of animal cruelty.

In 2009 more than 300 dogs, cats, horses and other animals were rescued from her non-profit animal sanctuary" after numerous complaints from the public about adopting sick and dying dogs.

They were found living in deplorable conditions with little or no food or water. Some had open wounds, ear and eye infections, fur matted with urine and feces and internal infections.

In addition, an abnormally large number of the dogs were pregnant which lead investigators to believe Petkus was breeding the dogs and running a puppy mill with previously abandoned animals.

Now that Ms. Petkus has been found guilty we ask that her sentencing fit the crime. We ask that she is banned for life from having contact with animals, that a lien be placed on her property to repay the animal rescue groups that took custody of her dogs and that Ms Petkus enter into a mental health program.

EUROPE HAS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MILLIONS OF STREET ANIMALS! - The Petition Site

EUROPE HAS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MILLIONS OF STREET ANIMALS! - The Petition Site



Right in the middle of Europe, millions of street animals are dying year in year out: in killing camps who call
themselves animal shelters, or in "freedom" - of hunger, cold, diseases, poison.

Granted, you'll find local laws forbidding the above - but often enough neither local authorities nor elements
of the executive authorities do comply with the laws.Even the most barbarian cruelties to animals go without prosecution
because it is not avenged, as a rule.

On December 1st, 2009 the treaty of Lisbon (so-called EU reformation treaty) became effective.
The major agreement states that the Union and its member states have to take account of the well-being of the animals as feeling beings.
But the ratification of this treaty does not automatically imply the end of the brute widespread deaths.
This is why we need to suit the action to the word.

Free Kral- Beautiful Dog Caged in Istanbul

Free Kral- Beautiful Dog Caged in Istanbul


  • Target: MURAT ARSLAN: head of the Istanbul Veterinary Association
  • Sponsored by: Let's Adopt!
This is Kral, a wonderful turkish dog that has been living trapped in a cage at a vet clinic in Istanbul. Kral, a stray dog living in the city of Yalova found himself lying on the floor, bleeding. He had been shot in the back by a policeman.

The dog was rescued by a man, Ismail, who rushed him to the clinic. Unfortunately, Kral would remain paralyzed for life. Ismail didnt know what to do with the dog so he entrusted him to Dr. Cemaliye Yegane, owner of PETERINER a small veterinary clinic in Nisantasi, Istanbul and asked them to take care of the dog whilst a home was found but a home was never found.

For over a year Kral has been living in conditions you can see here. About a couple of months ago Let's Adopt members heard of this case and they stepped in. First they offer their help in rehoming the dog, their help was initially accepted, then they purchased a wheelchair for the dog so that he would regain mobility. Our members then offered to get Kral out of the cage and take him as a foster whilst a final home was found.

The veterinarian, Dr. Cemaliye Yegane clearly annoyed at the possibility of loosing his longest staying paying client turned completely uncooperative. She said Kral was under the supervision of one of her clients, a mentally deranged individual who didn't wish for him to ever leave the clinic.

For over two weeks we have been negotiating the release of Kral, to no avail.Today we found out that the veterinarian, Dr. Cemaliye Yegane and her clients have taken a decision. Kral will never leave the clinic. He is good where he is, living in that cage. At this point we are going to request the help of our entire community to solve this case.

Kral's health is deteriorating quickly
and he is developing horrible contact sores due to lack of exercise. If his condition continues deteriorating we believe he will die in a matter of months if not weeks.

We need your help, here is what to do:
1. Please share this post in your profiles. It doesnt matter where you are. Just share it. Exposure is the only thing that is going to get Kral out of the cage where he is in. Be his voice. Share this story worldwide.

2. Call Dr. Cemaliye Yegane on 90 212- 246-3171 or if you are abroad send her an SMS on her mobile: 90 532- 440- 3940 and demand the immediate release of Kral into Lets Adopt! custody. Tell Dr. Cemaliye Yegane that as long as Kral is confined in that cage the world will know what goes on in that clinic.

3. Email the head of the Istanbul Veterinary Association, Murat ARSLAN at ist-vho@ist-vho.org.tr

If any of you wishes to adopt Kral, please get in touch with Viktor Larkhill at viktor@myletsadopt.com. less

Justice for Booka - The Petition Site



On April 6, 2011, I received a call from my 16 year old niece about 5:30pm CST. She lives in Columbia County in Lake City, Florida 32055. She told me that she had come across a 4 month old puppy that she believed ingested Antifreeze. She said the puppy was dying and she needed help. I was told that the puppies mouth was locked shut and she could not open it, her tongue was swollen and she was very weak.

With me being all the way in Indiana it was almost impossible to help. I called a Lake City Animal Hospital and spoke with Dr. Leslie. She told me that they had a treatment for anti freeze poisoning but she did not keep it in her office that we would have to get the puppy to the Gainesville Animal Hospital Emergency Room right away. My niece does not have a vehicle so this was impossible.

I called the Lake City police department and was told that the police department did not handle animal calls. I asked what they did if they found a sick animal on the street. He told me that they would pick it up and put in in an overnight area for Animal Control to get the next day. I told him the puppy would die before Animal Control got into their offices. I asked if that is what happens to all of their sick animal calls. The police man told me that they have never come across a case like this.

Because of my persistance, they were able to page someone from Animal Control. His name was T.J. I explained the situation to him. He said that his manager told him that this is not a call that they would handle. By the time they would get to pick up the puppy, it would be dead. If they did pick up the animal, they would charge my 16 year old neice $65.00 then they would go back to the office and euthenize the puppy. I said that I spoke with a vet and there is a treatment for antifreeze poisoning and he told me that they only have animals vaccinated. Anything else, they just put the animal to sleep. I asked how they could call themselves a humane society if they don't do anything to save the animals. I was then told that they were not a humane society but animal control. By this time, I was frustrated, angry, and upset to the point of crying. This poor puppy is dying and no one would help it.

Booka did pass away during the night, I am sure in immense pain due to the poisoning. Please help me make a call for action in Columbia County and Lake City to let them know that there has to be more done for these sick animals then was done on this day.

in the case of: Anthony Glenn Johnson vs Milagro
Dear Sir,
I am writing to you in regard to the case of animal abuse against the cat named Milagro by Anthony Green Johnson.
I would like you to advocate for the fullest sentence allowed by law in this case of animal torture. Many people have been appalled by this story and people such as Mr. Johnson need to be punished fully for their crimes against animals.
Animal abuse is a crime and people who abuse animals go on to harm people. They should not be able to free in society if they can do this to an animal.
Thank you for your consideration.

On Monday, March 14, 2011 between the hours of 8:00am and 10:00am our beloved dog Taz escaped from our yard. I had been sent home from work because it was raining and windy. I am in construction so this is very common in the winter months. When I arrived home I saw Taz was not there, so I immediately began to look for him. After a couple of hours of looking for him I called the pound and was advised I needed to contact Mike Horton with the Klamath County Animal Control.

There is nothing strange about finding a raped dog in Turkey.
It happens everywhere and you only have to spend some time on Facebook to discover many many cases, sometimes on a daily basis.
But this case is a little different. The end result is the same, a dog is raped by a human and is killed afterwards... what is different is the LOCATION of the crime.
The rape took place right behind the building of the Sincan Municipality in Ankara.
A few meters away from a building constantly surveiled by security a dog is being raped, his screams are loud, can be heard from the distance...
But nobody did anything...
Please call the office of the mayor Mustafa Tuna on:

Justice for the Starved German Shepherds - The Petition Site



  • Target: Judge John D. Whitesell
  • Sponsored by: Jeannie Lee
German Shepherd Dogs were found living in their own waste without food, water or heat in a house of horrors in February in Cresco, PA, USA. There were 10 dogs total, 3 were found dead and the others were emaciated, matted and covered in feces and urine. These dogs were continuelly breed, never saw the light of day, and never left their jail cells.
Peter Zervas, who ownes the sucessful Blue Comet Diner in Hazelton, PA, USA, left the dogs without any care for approximately a month or more in the brutally cold winter.
Zervas told police that he paid somebody to take care of the dogs but did not know the man's phone number or address. This is not Zervas's first brush with the law. In 1991 he was arrested for receiving stolen property, criminal conspiracy and corrupt organizations for his involvement with a burglary ring.
These full grown German Shepherds weighed between 40-45 lbs when found. Normal weight for this breed is 65-95 lbs. This video tells it all.

Please don't let the justice system give him a "slap on the wrist" for his crimes. He needs to be given jail time. Please sign this petition.

A neighbor in the town of Swiftwater discovered the abandoned dogs and reported it to police.
When police arrived, they found three dead puppies and seven starving adult dogs. They were transported to veterinary hospitals in very poor condition, rescuers said.

A vet estimated the dogs went for a month without food.

It is now time that Peter Zervas answers to 10 counts of animal cruelty. Please join us in asking Judge Whitesell to bestow the maximum sentence for this horrific crime.

Rosie the chimp was taken from her mother before she was just one year old. She spent her life in a San Antonio research facility, where she anesthetized or immobilized 100 times and stuck with stainless steel needles for kidney biopsies. In 2000, Rosie was rescued from the lab and taken to a primate facility, where she was safe from cruel, invasive experiments.

But last year, the National Institute of Health (NIH) ordered Rosie back into the research facility.

When she was in the lab, Rosie experienced unspeakable trauma and exhibited signs of anxiety, depression and even post-traumatic stress disorder. Now "used up" by human experiments, Rosie is old and diseased -- and shouldn't be subjected to more inhumane and unproductive lab work.

Together we can save Rosie and 13 other chimps like her: Urge the NIH to permanently remove Rosie and these chimps from the San Antonio lab and transfer them to the safe Alamogordo Primate Facility in New Mexico.

EU Parliament, please help save the lives of strays in ROMANIA ! - The Petition Site

EU Parliament, please help save the lives of strays in ROMANIA ! - The Petition Site



With this petition we kindly ask the EU Parliament to advise the Romanian authorities not to approve these HORRORS :
The Romanian Parliament's Committee for Public Administration Territorial Planning and Ecological Balance intends to make a new law regarding the management of strays....and they want :
- the dogs captured by the dog catchers will be PTS after 14 or maximum 60 days ( those considered dogs for fights, aggressive breeds will be PTS after 48h or 10 days ; those sick will be PTS immediately )

- sick animals will not be given for adoption.
- those who feed or take care of strays will be fined
- the minimum conditions for the captures, living quarters, transport, care ( food and shelter ) WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM the new law
- the clear description of how the euthanasia will be done and what substances are to be used WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM the new law...it will be replaced with " the euthanasia will be done by a specialist ".
- the non profit organizations for animal protection WILL HAVE NO RIGHT to complain about the living conditions of dogs in municipal shelters. the control will be done only by the Sanitary-veterinary Authority.
- the non profit organizations for animal protection WILL HAVE NO RIGHT to capture, take care or spat/neuter strays.
Horrible requirements for adoption from a municipal shelter :
- proof that one has the space necessary to have a pet
- proof that one has enough income to have a pet
- approval from the tenants in the same building that THEY allow you to have pets, and from one's close neighbors that THEY allow you to have more than 2 dogs
- and the adoption fees are astronomical for many Romanians..
I remind you the intentions of the deputies (from Committee of public administration) for dog management: mass incarceration in extermination camps and euthanasia of old, ill, aggressive dogs (considering the continuously abuses against animals from Romania this mean all dogs, they will deem any animal aggressive, without any kind of professional expertize...Aggressiveness can be provoked in any animal , any time, just to justify the killing... ).This is HOW Romania implements the international treaties and conventions....


PLEASE HAVE MERCY AND advise them TO PASS the Legislative Initiative ( Approved in unanimity by the Romanian Senate in 2007 , but held in-debated by this commission for years )

PL- X 912/19.12.2007 with regard to the management of animals ( strays ) which will complete the OUG 155/2001 : this Initiative will impose the IDENTIFICATION, the STERILIZATION, the REGISTRATION, the RETURN IN THE TERRITORY of stray dogs and cats and the building of REAL shelters for old and sick animals and the adoption of any of these animals by people who would like to adopt them.

More in the letter to the Target .
Thank you.

We do NOT want bullfights in Brazil - "Touradas aqui NÃO" - The Petition Site


I was astonished to find out about the intentions of the Major of Passo Fundo, Rio Grande do Sul, in the extreme south of Brazil.
He is promoting the first bullfight ever in Brazil in his city on February 2011.We have too much animal cruelty in Brazil already.We brazilians simply do NOT want to import other countries' cruelty traditions to this country.
At this very moment the world is acting against bullfights and asking for the end of this barbaric tradition.This man's plans must not go ahead. And it cannot become the first of many other similar events. We have already too much work going on against rodeos and other barbaric events that take place in the country.
We have already writen to the local authorities asking for the cancellation of this stupid event. The brazilian laws & Consttitution are on our side.
Please help us by urging the brazilian authorities not to consent to this "innovation", born of a sick mind, whose only concern is Money, with no consideration with animal life.
We do NOT want bullfights anywhere in Brazil.
