Make animal cruelty illegal in China.

China is one of if not the worst country when it comes to animal cruelty, each year thousands of animals are brutally killed and in front of each other. Did you know regularly in China dogs are stuffed into small cages before being hanged up by their paws and skinned alive, this happens in front of other dogs and those dogs see what's going to happen to them and they start barking and wailing in fear and for what so some rich people can wear fur clothing? This has to stop every animal can feel pain people need to stop thinking that because they can't speak they can't feel either and that means we control them but we don't! Animals were here first this is their world not ours we need to respect them! In the photo attached to this petition you can see a dog very much still alive having a leg sawn off and there's more to come for that terrified dog and many other animals. Pets are actually stolen off of the street, taken from their loving homes and killed in the most painful ways possible. I am absolutely disgraced to be human if that's what other humans will do for no good reason. Some of us clearly have no humanity in us if we can do this to poor defenceless animals or just sit back and pretend it's not happening because it is happening... right now! So please be the right kind of human and have humanity, sign the petition do these animals good and pass it on so we have a greater chance of stopping this. Please help them, because they need you to care.

Justice for Ruby & Benji. Left Starved & Without Water For Weeks & Died Painful Deaths.

Maximum penalties for Ms Atwell’s actions need to be enforced. We need the RSPCA to appeal the Magistrates decision and enforce the penalties to set an example and get the message out, that it is ILLEGAL let alone inhumane to starve & abuse animals. These dogs died locked up in a laundry in their own vomit, urines and faeces without ANY food or water for 3 Weeks. Ms Atwell is a murderer and her actions have struck the entire nation with utter disgust, shame and sadness.  “Kelpie puppy Ruby and two-year-old staffy cross Benji were found dead without food and water in a home in Albury near the Victorian border. Their owner, Kimberly Thi-My Atwell, was on Thursday fined $144, ordered to complete 80 hours of community service and banned from owning animals for five years by Magistrate Rodney Brender.  Both dogs were rated one out of nine for health and were deemed to have died from a combination of dehydration and starvation.” “She displayed no concern whatsoever and noted the dogs could easily be replaced”. These laws need to be taken seriously & maximum penalties applied to offenders, our leaders nationwide need to open their eyes up about Animal WELFARE.  In NSW, the offence of committing an aggravated act of cruelty upon an animal carries a maximum penalty of 200 penalty units (each unit is $110 so $22000)  and/or two years imprisonment for an individual. A charge under this section can be brought by the Police, or privately prosecuted by bodies such as the RSPCA or Animal Welfare League (AWL).In NSW, a court can impose any of the following penalties for a charge of aggravated cruelty to an animal. Home Detention, Prison Sentence Intensive Corrections Order (ICO),Suspended Sentence, Community Service Order (CSO), Community Corrections Orders (CCO), Good Behaviour Bond, Fines,Section 10A, Conditional Release Order (CRO).  News Report-

Save The SABC and be - the voice for the voiceless !

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE DONATING TO CHANGE.ORG DOES NOT COME TO WISH OR THE SABC. TO DONATE TOWARDS WISH OR THE SABC, PLEASE VISIT OUR WEBSITE OR FACEBOOK PAGE WWW.WISHANIMALRESCUE.ORG.AUPHOTO - MURRAY WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES, NOW SAFE IN WA THE STORYDuring the week of the 18th of March 2019 WISH Animal Rescue were sent several messages, and tagged in posts, in relation to the RSPCA SA trying to euthanize 10 adult border collies, and their pups. We attempted to contact RSPCA SA direct on Thursday 21st March 2019, to offer our assistance with these dogs, to no avail. On the Thursday evening we were put in contact with someone on the ground in SA, who had already successfully removed several dogs from the same breeding facility that the RSPCA 10 were from, and placed them in rescues. On Friday 22nd of March 2019, we were asked if our team could take on 16 Border Collies, to help re-home them within WISH. Our team made some phone calls and organised to get the RV and Dog Trailer ready for an early morning Saturday departure.On Saturday 23rd March 2019, 5 members on the WISH team headed of on our biggest road trip ever. Driving two vehicles across borders from WA to SA, and back. On Monday 25th March 2019, the team arrived at the breeders facility in SA and collected the 16 above mention dogs, along with a further 15 dogs. We took all dogs the owner was willing to surrender. On Wednesday 27th March 2019, the team arrived back in WA and our new dogs were dispersed to experienced foster carers, to receive their vet work and much needed human interaction. We were asked to take on a further 6 Border Collies from the same breeding facility and took these into care, making the total number of dogs in care be 37. Due the impending court case, due to take place on Friday 29th March 2019, we decided not to share any information with regards to our trip, until the court case was finalised.On Friday 29th March 2019, we were made aware that the RSPCA had won their court case to gain ownership of the 10 Border Collies in their care, and the 23 puppies. We received a copy of the court document, and decided we had to fight for the 33 dogs now in their care, as they now had full control over if they live, or were euthanized. We shared with the public, what we had been doing over the last week, and information on how our dogs were doing in care - shy but not aggressive. This petition was started to gain public support, in the release of the Border Collies, from RSPCA to A rescue. We were happy for these dogs to go into care of another rescue, if the RSPCA preferred not to work with us, we only wanted them safe.Over the next few weeks, we received numerous anonymous emails containing videos, photos and documentation of the seizure, and condition of the dogs in RSPCA care. We were disgusted by what we saw. After numerous attempts to contact the RSPCA SA direct, to offer our assistance in taking over custody for the 33 in care, we felt we had no choice but to go public with what we had received. We in no way intended to "take on" the RSPCA or "damage their reputation", we only wanted the 33 dogs in their care, safe. We offered to purchase the 10 adults at a cost of $1000 per dog (covering their full adoption cost) to bring them to safety.On Wednesday 3rd April 2019, we received confirmation that four of the 10 adults, had been euthanized by the RSPCA SA. They also advised that all puppies in care, would be rehomed, or had already been rehomed. Despite proof that ALL of our 37 ADULTS were settling in wonderfully, and had shown no aggression, these four lost their lives. We continued to fight for the remaining 6 adults in their possession.Over the next three years we continued to take in SABC (SA Border Collies), transport them to WA, rehab and rehome them. At no cost to anyone but WISH. Between foster carers in both SA and WA, numerous road trips, and lots of flights, we got all we were offered safe. To date WISH have saved 142 SABC.On Monday 17th January 2022, the case between the RSPCA and the owner of these dogs started. Please note we are not involved with the court case at all, nor have we been asked to provide any information and/or evidence for either party. What has been disclosed by the RSPCA is that 10 adults and 5 puppies were seized by the RSPCA in the original inspection of the facility. Of these, 3 were pregnant resulting in a further 27 puppies. Out of the 32 puppies in total, 12 did not survive. During court, "Prosecutor Peter Saul told the court that the RSPCA seized 10 dogs from the property"... "8 being euthanised". This means our original appeal to save these 10 dogs did not succeed. After 4 days in court, the case was adjourned.On Monday 9th May 2022, the court case continued. We are yet to be given any information regarding the case, as details are currently being kept private. On Wednesday 11th May 2022 final statements were given. We are awaiting details on when the judge will rule and don't yet have a confirmed date.We would like publicly remind both parties, we are here to help. Please do not let any more SABC suffer the same fate as the 8 that were seized. We have the time and experience with these dogs, and the willingness to take them on. We will take them on with full responsibility and expense to no-one but WISH. No more of these dogs need to be euthanised. Please share, sign and lets crack the 200,000 mark.To be continued.....Petition - Video One - Video Two - Documentation - are they now?

Justice for Pumpkin Puppy

I adopted Pumpkin at 8 weeks old. She had been surrendered to a local rescue. Pumpkin had problems walking. After her Scans at a specialist veterinary clinic Pumpkins injuries were shocking and disturbing. She had  recieved injuries due to extreme trauma as a new born puppy. Her spine was broken, along with her legs.She was not born like this! Someone or something caused these injuries.Pumpkin is now fully paralysed from the waist down. She will never recover or walk again. She is not in pain. She is trying to live a normal happy, puppy life without the use of her legs! She will need intense hydrotherapy and physiotherapy for the rest of her life.  The breeder needs investigating. We need to know the truth. Was this an accident? Why wasn't she taken to a vets? Why & how did this happen?  We need to know & stop it from happening again.  Please sign this petition to support her cause and get justice for Pumpkin... Tougher laws needed for Breeding of animals. Tougher sentences for animal cruelty & neglect. Puppy mills are the cause of half the animal welfare problems in the UK: The poor little bitches are made to produce litter after litter until they are worn out;The puppies are not looked after properly and even ill treated, as happened to Pumpkin;They are often not properly inoculated and in poor health; Hereditary defects (e.g. epilepsy, eczema) are not weeded out, but allowed to continue into the next generation;Not enough care is taken to ensure that the puppies go to good homes.Respectable breeders want to see puppy mills closed down and refuse to deal with them;People concerned for animal welfare want them closed down; For people simply wanting a dog for companionship, plenty of wonderful rescue dogs are available, who need a good home,from the RSPCA, Battersea etc. If the Government claim that they do not have the resources to inspect breeders' establishments, they should delegate the task to local authorities or non-Governmental organizations.

These donkeys are being made to work in unacceptable heat with hardly any water or food

For far too many years, Donkeys have been used as a form of amusement in summer months on Coney Beach. Whilst you may think it would be a fun activity for your child to partake in, it’s also compromising the animals health. The donkeys, ponies and often horses are left all day with minimal shelter and water on the hot sand, temperatures reached 30° plus this past week which is too hot for animals with suitable shelter and copious amounts of water, let alone an animal left ALL day with lack of these necessities. It’s deeply saddening, if you aren’t going to look after your animals correctly then don’t have any at all. Many argue that these animals are used to the heat as they are robust and used as transport in very hot countries, this may be the case however the donkeys on Coney beach are not acclimatised to this sort of heat as they do not live in said countries - we have very very hot weather for a matter of weeks in the UK and therefore they would not be used to it. Please, if you care for these poor animals sign this petition to hopefully stop this animal cruelty, now and for the future. On 18th July 2021, I saw a picture get posted on social media of these poor babies in 30° heat with a tiny bucket of water and hardly no hay left to eat. May I add, I’ve had people who work for these people, tell me that when their hay bale is empty it stays empty for the rest of the day. One tiny bucket between 6/7 donkeys and 2/3 horses for 6/7 hours every single day, this needs to stop! They're clearly not looked after and are neglected. All that’s happened in the past is they have been suspected, I’ve made this petition so they get completely shut down! Help these poor animals have a better life, not just used as money making machines!

Stop animal neglect by Qantas airlines

My beautiful Boxer dog Duke died when flying with Qantas from Sydney to Brisbane. Duke suffered a terrible death- on a day that was extremely hot, he was left in a crate, out on the tarmac, with no shade for at least an hour. Qantas baggage handlers thought it was ok to leave Duke on the tarmac while they loaded all the passengers' luggage, and then continued to leave him out there after the flight was delayed. I became increasingly distressed as I watched him sitting out on the tarmac and each time I alerted Qantas staff of my fears for Duke's safety, they assured me Duke was fine. Qantas investigated Duke's death and have told me they accept no liability for what happened. Their response is that they followed standard animal handling procedures and then continued with their standard statement on 'snub nosed' breeds being at higher risk when flying. I want everyone to know Duke's death had NOTHING to do with the flying, he travelled from WA to NSW two weeks prior, a much longer flight without issue. Qantas, Duke died because you neglected your duty of care and left him out in the heat for so long, he became overheated. An extremely dangerous condition for any dog regardless of breed. If you left a dog in a car you would face prosecution. To me, this is no different. I know I can't bring Duke back, but I want to make sure no-one else loses their beloved pet this way. Sadly, since losing my beautiful Boxer, a Bulldog puppy has also died under the same circumstances on a Qantas flight from Sydney to Melbourne. I have also heard of other tragic stories pets going missing, pets being given to the wrong person, pets collapsing on arrival and needing medical attention and others that haven't survived. If this is Qantas' standard, we need change! Beloved pets cannot continue to lose their lives through Qantas neglect. That's why I'm calling on the airline to undertake a full review of their policies and procedures to ensure this doesn't happen again. Please, sign and share my petition and let Qantas know that our pets are precious cargo! You can read the full story here.
