END the Yulin Dog Meat Festival NOW!

The Yulin Dog Meat Festival is an inhuman festival held each year in Yulin, China where dogs are stolen from their owners, picked up as strays off the street, or bred from illegal puppy mills to be cooked and eaten because they supposedly help the health of those who eat them. Some people there even consider it a delicacy which I find sad and crazy, especially since this only started in 2005 so it's not like it's part of a long tradition. While being brought to the festival, the dogs are crammed into cages -- 5-6 dogs in a cage meant for a rabbit -- to the point where they can't even move their heads. Their limbs are often twisted into awkward positions causing them great pain. The dogs are deprived of food and water for many days. When they finally arrive at the festival, they are tortured even further. After dying an extremely painful death, they are then cooked and served to anyone at the festival. Around 15,000 dogs have been eaten during the 10-day festivals in the past. I want people to sign my petition to make people aware of what's going on. I want to send a message to the government there and make sure the Yulin Festival doesn't continue so that not one more dog suffers. I am a 13-year-old dog owner and animal lover who finds it hard to live knowing dogs are being tortured on the other side of the world as I live my life. Whether you're a dog owner or not, please help stop innocent dogs from being tortured and killed. http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/yulin-dog-meat-festival-explainer-what-is-it-when-start-banned-controversy-a7800721.html

END THE YULIN DOG EATING FESTIVAL IN CHINA!

STOP! The Yulin dog eating festival! Dogs are innocent animals, that deserve love, attention, care, and a family. First, dogs are stolen from owners, taken from puppy farms or taken from the streets as strays, next they are crammed into cages that are way too small for the amount of dogs inside, click this link to see: https://goo.gl/images/wnGjrN , which often twist their limbs into extremely uncomfortable positions and have to stay there for several hours. Once they finally reach their destination, then, like some sort of torture the dogs are boiled, beaten, strangled, electrocuted, burnt and skinned ALIVE! They think the dog tastes better and will be more tender if it has adrenaline! After the horrendous ordeal the visitors happily eat the dogs. Animal cruelty is not a crime in China! When a dog just bites a human, it usually gets euthanised, or, in China there was a policeman that beat a dog to death in public! Here is the link to that: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5228433/Golden-retriever-dies-beaten-policeman.html They eat dog meat because they believe that if you eat dog meat it gives the men more sexual stamina and that it will keep them cool during the summer and it will apparently ward off evil spirits. I just can’t beleive that these people could torture the animals that help with the police, help disabled people, support and love each family they have, support and love children if they have been abused and many more.   If a human tortures a dog in China, nothing happens! PUT AN END TO THIS MADNESS!   If you really want to see how China really treats man’s best friend, contact me on drongolian1@outlook.com and I will send you the link as soon as I can. I’m warning you that the video is extremely graphic and upsetting.

Localicen a esta perrita en India, enferma y explotada, y a quienes abusan de ella

Este video esta causando indignacion en las redes sociales. En el se puede ver como explotan a Mani, una perrita claramente triste y enferma, la cual se ve obligada a transportar a diario una gran cantidad de leche en su lomo, y a veces hasta niños que se divierten a su costa. Su mirada clama auxilio. La estructura en la que hace el transporte va atada a su cuello por un collar grueso de hierro. Debe ser rescatada antes de que sea demasiado tarde! Su rescate debe llevar el mensaje de la no explotacion animal bajo ninguna circunstancia y tras cualquier frontera, y ser a la vez un ejemplo para los niños que crecen viendo esta crueldad como algo normal. Los animales sienten y sufren, no son cosas! Aqui os dejo el enlace con la noticia y el video: https://kachorros.club/comerciante-entreno-a-su-perro-para-entregar-la-leche-en-un-pueblo-de-india/ Gracias por tu compasion, por favor, firma y comparte. Por Mani. Mani is exploted in South India. Instead India is a very kind country caring about many animals, this is happening right now there. She carries milk by her back day after day. But not only milk, so her owner can earn some money easily...she also has to suffer some kids taking her like a funny way of transportation. Her owner has just considered she has to work for him, and that its all: all her life will be that, because he wants to be the more original seller of milk. Lets avoid Mani has to suffer, she seems very sick and tired, this not could be life for her! Her face is claiming for justice, patiently...we cant stay doing nothing. Her rescue must carry the message of intolerance of animal abuse in any country, in any case, and cannot be a model of animals care for the children. Animals suffer, can feel, they are not things! Please localize her and make justice!, bringing a new home where she can knows love and peace, as a sanctuary. Here you can see the whole article including the video that crush my heart: https://kachorros.club/comerciante-entreno-a-su-perro-para-entregar-la-leche-en-un-pueblo-de-india/ Thanks a lot for your compassion, please sign and share, for Mani.

SHUT DOWN PUPPY ZONE

https://www.wate.com/news/local-news/former-west-knoxville-puppy-store-employee-makes-claims-about-animals-health/792723403 https://hannahmoulton.atavist.com/hidden-practices-of-puppy-zone9dscx ***IF you still need some convincing or want to be more involved with our fight, please follow this link https://m.facebook.com/END-PUPPY-ZONE-243397039657097/ and you will see tons of articles, posts, etc to further show the INJUSTICE these animals are enduring.. Also find the headquarters for what we are doing next and event information!*** I'll start this by posting a link of a story that has ALREADY made it to our local news channel about this place. Then I will post ANOTHER article that furthers my point. For YEARS, I have heard negative story after negative story. I have never, not ONCE hear a positive outcome from Puppy Zone in Knoxville, Tennessee. Former employees and volunteers have told countless HORROR stories of feeding puppies bleach, puppies being drugged, improper care or puppies, etc.. on top of the fact that these dogs are the products of puppy mills and are sold at an outstanding rate. The percentage of survival for adopted puppies at Puppy Zone is somewhere south of 50%. YET SOMEHOW, this business is STILL running. You walk in to lethargic puppies who are barely responsive in cribs with cage floors. One woman walked in with her daughter to find a DEAD PUPPY recently. This was the final straw. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. This is inhumane and sickening. Please help me in shutting down the worst excuse of a business I have ever seen. Help me save these puppies and pray that God will save their souls.

No a la macrogranja de cerdos en Villamalea (Albacete) #stopmacrogranjas

En este enlace puedes firmar para que prohíban y dejen de subvencionar las macrogranjas en España #stopmacroganjas (PETICIÓN GENERAL) Los proyectos de macrogranjas de ganadería intensiva no paran de brotar, especialmente en las zonas más despobladas del Estado. En Albacete, una macrogranja de cerdos no va a necesitar la Declaración de Impacto Ambiental (DIA) porque según la Consejería de Medio ambiente este proyecto no tendrán efecto significativos. En esta granja se van a cebar a más de 2.000 cerdos y se van a almacenar los purines de tres meses en una extensión de más de mil metros cúbicos. Además, ya han solicitado el abastecimiento de agua a la Confederación Hidrográfica del Júcar que supondrá unos 7.000 metros cúbicos al año pero para las autoridades regionales no les parece que esta actividad vaya a tener impacto medioambiental. Las macrogranjas suponen una clara amenaza para el cambio climático. Son innumerables los estudios que así lo reflejan. La ganadería es la responsable del 18% de la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero. En España, según los últimos datos publicados, los sectores de la agricultura, ganadería, silvicultura y pesca son los responsables de las emisiones del 54,4% del metano y del 72% del óxido nitroso, dos gases de efecto invernadero más potentes que el CO2. A los efectos del calentamiento global se suman la pérdida de diversidad biológica: es ingente la cantidad de pastos y piensos que necesitan las macrogranjas como la de Villamalea en Albacete. Estos proyectos también traen consigo un impacto paisajístico y una destrucción de los hábitats, el sufrimiento animal, la contaminación de los acuíferos y los suelos o la escasez del agua, además de los conocidos problemas para la salud - en España se consume casi el doble carne que lo que recomienda el World Cancer Research Fund -. Por todas estas razones decimos que NO a la macrogranja de cerdos en Villamalea, Albacete y te pedimos que firmes esta petición para hacerle llegar este mensaje claro y contundente a las autoridades responsables. Tenemos que parar esta barbaridad. Reivindicamos nuestro derecho a respirar un aire limpio, sin malos olores, a tener nuestras aguas no contaminadas, a un mundo rural vivo.

End animal rape, brothels, and pornography

Thank you for contacting PETA about bestiality (humans’ use of animals for sexual pleasure). It is a very serious issue and should be considered an act of abuse. Sexual assaults against animals can be fatal, and we encourage everyone to take action against this type of violence. If you encounter a website that depicts acts of bestiality, please report the site to its host. For information about what to do about websites depicting or supporting cruelty to animals, please see http://www.PETA.org/action/get-active-online/cruelty-internet. The Department of Justice has developed a division to help investigate Internet crime. Please go to http://www.usdoj.gov/criminal/cybercrime/ to learn more about this program. To submit a complaint, please go to http://www.justice.gov/criminal/cybercrime/reporting.html. Animal abusers need to be aggressively prosecuted. If you visit the action alerts page on our website (http://www.PETA.org/action/action-alerts), you will find that many alerts address cruelty cases. Our Cruelty Investigations Department (CID) pursues animal-abuse cases by contacting law-enforcement officials, pushing for vigorous prosecution and strict sentencing, sending out news releases (http://www.PETA.org/media/news-releases), and offering rewards for information leading to convictions of perpetrators. CID has also mailed our “abuse link” packs—which explore the connections between cruelty to animals and violence against humans—to hundreds of prosecutors and judges across the country. Please visit http://www.PETA.org/issues/companion-animal-issues/ to learn more about the following topics: • What to do if you witness cruelty to animals • The link between animal abuse and human abuse • How to campaign effectively for tougher laws Thanks again for your compassion for animals. Sincerely, The PETA Staff http://www.PETA.org

STOP ANIMAL TORTURE IN OTHER COUNTRIES!!!

Diandra, Thank you for sharing your concern with us regarding the abuse of animals around the globe. Ending animal suffering is PETA’s main focus, both in the United States and abroad. PETA has entities around the world in efforts to accomplish this goal. These include PETA UK, PETA Deutschland, PETA Asia-Pacific, PETA Austrailia, PETA France, and PETA India. In regards to China, PETA Asia-Pacific just announced a huge victory in regards to “crush” videos. PETA Asia worked with authorities to ensure that the Ridons were located, arrested, and prosecuted. They received a life sentence for their part in making the videos. You can learn more here: http://blog.petaasiapacific.com/companion-animals/breaking-news-makers-cruel-crush-video-sentenced-details The best way to end cruelty to animals is to encourage the local people themselves to work against it―hold public demonstrations, take their case to the media, and use any political clout at their disposal. We fight for animals in many countries, but without the invaluable support of local people fearlessly denouncing cruelty, we can only offer animals so much. To find animal rights groups in a particular area, consult http://www.WorldAnimalNet.org, a Web site that offers an extensive listing of organizations categorized by country. Ultimately, great courage and strength will be required to fight against injustice and cruelty. We appreciate everyone who has signed this petition and works to make a better place for animals, worldwide.
