Boycott GEICO and Rodeo Cruelty - The Petition Site

Target: GEICO CEO, Tony Nicely
Sponsored by: Animal Advocates

GEICO Vice Presdident, Ted Ward has said, "We are proud to be partnering with the PRCA and the exciting world of ProRodeo."

To portray an animal, a gecko, participating in vicious and bloody torture of animals in rodeo, is a bizarre and idiotic way to sell car insurance. They even have a picture of their gecko wearing a cowboy hat on the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association website.

Let GEICO's CEO, Tony Nicely, know what you think about the company's support of rodeo cruelty and thier marketing partnership with the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association.

Free Charlie Campaign - The Petition Site

Target: Royal Thai Embassy in London
Sponsored by: Animal Defence Society

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

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

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.

Stop Live Animal Export and Abuse - The Petition Site

Stop Live Animal Export and Abuse - The Petition Site

Target: The Hon. Joe Ludwig, Australia's Minister of Agriculture
Sponsored by: World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)

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!

Sign this petition to Australia's Minister of Agriculture and stand alongside 100,000 Australians who want to see an end to the unnecessary and inhumane live export trade.
