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.

Bring Back Roseanne!

"Roseanne" is hit reboot-TV show run by ABC. Recently, Roseanne Barr made "controversial" statements on Twitter, which she later recanted, and apologized for her "racist" joke simply saying it was made in "bad taste." This is not the first time Roseanne has spoken in ill-manner of Democrats, nor is it the first of snarky comments in the quoted form of bad taste, but I find that is what I like most about her. I support Roseanne 100%: she has done nothing wrong, in the juxtaposition of other celebrities who support the blue-tainted agenda, and what those same nasty things those celebrities said about other more prominent members of Congress, who also happen to be Republicans. If "Roseanne" was truly cancelled because of her "offensive" tweet about a former White House representative, why hasn't Jimmy Kimmel been cancelled as well? The answer is simple: they were both on ABC, but Kimmel's jokes have been swept under the rug because he supports the agenda that ABC wants him to press on. Barr, on the otherhand, thinks and speaks for herself, which clearly did not earn her any brownie points with ABC.  I have always admired Roseanne's openness and free-thought process, and I strongly believe that is one of many things that set her aside from all the majority of today's celebrities. She bites back. Roseanne Barr has been especially outspoken against the leftist media and Democratic party, contributing to the abrupt cancellation of the series reboot, which was launched Tuesday, March 27th of this year. Barr is best known for her alt-right views, as well as giving a voice for Americans that share similar standpoints, which is being steadily and very obviously stripped from mainstream media outlets as increasingly leftist views become the standard for misled, uninformed Americans, and freedom of the press is, sadly, enforced only via propaganda and blue-colored bias. LETS BRING BACK ROSEANNE AND FIGHT BACK IN THE NAME OF FREE-THINKERS EVERYWHERE!

Retract Cruel Rabbit Video & Promote Responsible Rabbit Care

What kind of message is Nat Geo showing their viewers?  There is nothing cute about this video and it is not an adorable game of hide and seek.  http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/wild/unlikely-animal-friends/videos/hide-and-seek/ In our opinion, sadly many rabbits will suffer and die because of this misleading message being promoted. What the story failed to mention is that setting domestic rabbits loose is a Death Sentence, and encouraging a predator to hunt and chase a prey animal is Cruel, Inhumane and Terrorizing.  A knowledgeable bunny person would know that Petey's posture in the video tells he is defending his claimed territory and his life while displaying excitement and agitation.   Some rabbits are more territorial than others, but many rabbits will be very angry if you reach into their homes.  If you do so, anticipate getting charged at, pounded hard with pointy-tipped paws, and even bitten.  It is stated the rabbit has bitten Ellie and shown Ellie's mouth grabbing the rabbit.http://language.rabbitspeak.com/why-you-fiend/  Ellie and Petey's videos are posted on Youtube, one especially appalling and cruel video named "Ellie enlists Charlie to help take on Petey".  Here people "Laugh" while Two dogs team up barking and chasing Petey, a prey animal who is running Terrified for his life.http://causes.worldpeacemeet.com/reap/causes/petitions/ According to this hazard-herald.com articlehttp://www.hazard-herald.com/news/news/309250/Unlikely-friendship-lands-deal-on-national-television?template=art_smartphone The family set rabbits loose on their farm while stating they had concerns the dog would hurt them; that the biggest threat to the dog and rabbits friendship was when Petey chose another rabbit, Darla, as his mate.  Darla and Petey had babies, then the article mentioned that Darla died. The article goes on to state that they thought Petey had died from dehydration once and they do not expect him to live much longer and hopes one of the baby rabbits will take his place with Ellie.  Is this entire rabbit family being hunted and chased in fear for their lives for human amusement?   How did Darla die, are any of her babies still alive?  Although there can be friendships between dogs and domestic rabbits, this happens under close supervision.  With many dogs, the hunting instinct is buried deep below generations of domestication.  After being harassed by a playful dog  a rabbit can go into a terminal state of shock and symptoms may not show up for several hours, and by then it may be too late.   Rabbits also have small, fragile bones and can be severely injured by unintentional mishandling and have been known to break their backs struggling to escape predators or inexperienced caretakers. It is nothing short of a Miracle that Petey survived this type of cruelty. Reports of stray rabbits are increasing and the stories are horrifying.In reality, a prey animal such as a helpless domestic rabbit lacks the wild instincts of their cousins and become sitting targets when "set free" or allowed to "free roam" in a family yard where predators may have no fear of humans when hungry. There are many dangers for domestic rabbits outdoors, disease, toxins, pests, human predators and weather. If stray rabbits live long enough to breed many of the babies are killed or eaten alive and for the one's that survive, the cruel cycle continues.  If the rabbits populate and become a nuisance they are then poisoned or otherwise killed by humans. Nat Geo Wild’s David Mizejewski makes monthly appearances on various TV shows and has participated as a wildlife expert in press events, is a media personality, author, blogger and a naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation, however, he seems to have no education on domestic rabbit care and is teaching a cruel and inhumane practice to the entire world. National Geographic claims to be one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world. The Rabbit Community is outraged at the thought that others will imitate this irresponsible practice of setting their domestic rabbits loose.  We the Petitioners respectfully request a retraction of this program.  We further request that they contact the President of the House Rabbit Society to offer education on proper care of domesticated rabbits.  It is especially important at this time when so many people are being misled to buy live Easter Bunnies for their children. We also hope the family will educate themselves on proper care for their rabbits and provide them with a safe living area and necessities; instead of believing prey animals are playing, being cute or entertaining when being terrorized by a predator.

POR UNA RTVE EN LIBERTAD: SIN SECTARISMOS, SIN ODIO. POR UNA RTVE DONDE IMPERE LA VERDAD

                       MANIFIESTO POR LA LIBERTAD EN RTVE            RTVE ha sido y debe ser la expresión más objetiva de servicio público en España en materia audiovisual  y digital de información, formación y entretenimiento. Su obligación legal es el reflejo de la pluralidad de la sociedad española dentro del marco de la Constitución, que garantiza los derechos e igualdad de todos ciudadanos. Por su estructura e implantación en el territorio nacional, ha de constituir un pilar fundamental  viable del Estado y de la sociedad para que entre esos valores y principios constitucionales se preserve el derecho de los españoles a una información veraz, independiente, rigurosa y de calidad. El verdadero cometido de RTVE la convierte en  elemento transversal  mediático esencial de la democracia española. Y por tanto, adquiere un ineludible compromiso moral y ético con la verdad y la libertad que no se puede ver amenazado por los cambios políticos y su traslado a la radio y la televisión públicas de forma partidista.  La Ley 17/2006, de 5 de junio, de la radio y la televisión de titularidad estatal ha sido retocada por decreto en dos ocasiones, hasta llegar al momento presente de incertidumbre e indefinición producto de una reforma apresurada de difícil aplicación que está derivando en alarma social por la naturaleza de su metodología política. Para renovar el Consejo de Administración de RTVE y la Presidencia, el Parlamento surgido de la legitimidad de las urnas abrió un Concurso Público que debiera culminar en otoño si bien corre el riesgo de ser abortado o cuando menos ralentizado en función del calendario y la conveniencia electoral. La designación de una "Administradora Provisional Única" por decreto apelando a una presunta “pérdida de independencia y al final del mandato anterior” ha facilitado una cascada de ceses y nombramientos en departamentos estratégicos que ronda el centenar, y que son claramente contradictorios con la vocación de provisionalidad con la que se ha justificado política, mediática y socialmente tan radical cambio. Máxime si tenemos en cuenta que en dicho periodo interino no está representada una RTVE "de todos" y se ignora la proporcionalidad en su concepción y origen. Para ello se requirieron  hasta ocho plenos en Congreso y Senado confeccionando un inicial Consejo de Administración a la carta que dejaba fuera a una parte mayoritaria de la sociedad española y usurpaba las competencias de designación de  la Cámara Alta. Con una votación sorpresa sobre la que desde algún grupo parlamentario se expresaron “dudas razonables” quedó frustrada esa  maniobra dando lugar al nombramiento de una Administradora Provisional Única que ha procedido junto a su equipo afín a la elaboración de un organigrama diseñado a la medida. De tal manera que nos encontramos con una dirección provisional  que ejerce de única al hacer recaer sobre si misma competencias del Consejo de Administración inexistente, sin colegiación, poco representativa y sin filtro alguno. Una "Administradora Única Provisional" que ignora su provisionalidad y que ha acometido unos cambios de tal profundidad que son de dudosa higiene democrática y plantea numerosos inconvenientes de recorrido jurídico. En consecuencia, este MANIFIESTO POR LA LIBERTAD EN RTVE se abre al apoyo  de quienes dentro y fuera de RTVE creen en la necesidad de una auténtica radiotelevisión pública libre, independiente y plural, más allá del partidismo y de la ideología o de las denuncias de parte por  supuesta “manipulación o malas prácticas”. Con ello reclamamos la culminación en plazo del Concurso Público para que se subsanen y reparen en los tres meses previstos legalmente las anomalías de este proceso, pues lo contrario sería una vulneración de los derechos de los ciudadanos, de los valores constitucionales y de los principios democráticos. Y exigimos que los órganos de seguimiento, desde el Parlamento y la Comisión de Control de RTVE a otros internos y externos, se mantengan vigilantes y no callen ante lo que muchos consideran un “atropello” innecesario dado el periodo de renovación por Concurso en la que estamos inmersos. Del mismo modo instamos a que las instituciones, los partidos políticos, asociaciones de profesionales , grupos vinculados al periodismo y la comunicación y ciudadanos de toda condición y pensamiento tomen en consideración este Manifiesto para hacer de RTVE el objeto de un verdadero Pacto de Estado por el bien común y el interés general de la sociedad española, algo que por las formas en las que se ha llevado a cabo el proceso descrito consideramos no cumple hasta ahora los parámetros de transparencia y neutralidad debidos. Y al mismo tiempo invitamos a que se denuncien los casos de “represalia” que están circulando en los ámbitos profesional y personal con la finalidad única de hacer puramente democrática dicha renovación de RTVE en defensa de la verdad, de la libertad y demás derechos de los ciudadanos garantizados en la Constitución de 1978.   FIRMADO: PLATAFORMA POR UNA RTVE LIBRE
