Save the Animals of Venezuela

The Metropolitan Park Zoo in the Venezuelan zoo state of Zulia is in appalling conditions. Every animal in the zoo has gone for weeks without food, the lions are starved to the point where their bones are showing. Thanks to the countries economical issue the cost of meat has become too expensive for the zoo to afford. Starving animals have resorted to cannibalizing each other. The zoo also has started killing off their domestic animals in order to feed the big cats. Goats, pigs, and ducks, as well as older animals, have been sacrificed in order to feed the lions. It is responsible and the duty of the zoo to care for the animals that they have caged. To sacrifice one animal to save another is short side and unsustainable in the long run. The zoo should relinquish their animals to other countries that can care for them. It is a dereliction of duty to keep the animals in such appalling conditions. Please sign and share, together we can rescue the dying animals before it is too late. Time is of the essences, it won't be long before the big cats who require 25 pounds of food a day die of starvation. Thank You.

Help Protect The Loris

In the animal kingdom, being cute can be a curse. A prime example of this would be the Slow Loris. These cute animals are endangered due to being poached by the thousands for the pet industry. These cute little animals are nocturnal and when spotted with a flashlight, they freeze up like a deer in headlights. Unfortunately, this makes poaching trivial. Combine that with deforestation which destroys the hiding places and the Slow Loris doesn't have a chance. The older ones are ground down into a powder which locals believe can "cure" cancer. Others are boiled alive in order to extract the oil from there skin. The oil is believed to slow down aging. The fur of the Loris is used to heal wounds, the flesh to cure epilepsy, eyes are used in love potions, and the meat is reported to cure asthma and stomach problems. The cuter baby Loris is sold to the pet trade but not before their teeth are removed. Often the teeth are yanked out leading to infection. As pets, the nocturnal Loris is subjected to bright lights daily leading to stress. Their defensive behavior of putting the arms up in order to secrete a toxin is seen as "cute" leading to owners who purposely trigger the behavior. Been a primate the Loris requires specialized care, care that very few people are able to provide. This, in turn, has led to high mortality rates in the pet trade. Despite being internationally banned, the Loris is still been sold out in the open in countries such as Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. A single Loris can be sold for as much as $100 USD while the fine for selling one can range anywhere from $2- $200 USD. Clearly, the enforcement of the ban is severely lacking. Please sign and share, together we can pressure the governments of Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand to impose stricter bans and harsher enforcement of poaching.

Stop Animal Killing

Imagine for a minute that your job consists of saving animals, now imagine a law that forces you to kill those same animals instead of saving them. Unfortunately, that scenario might become reality soon. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is planning on passing a law that would force animal control professionals to euthanize captured animals. Currently, the standard procedure for captured animals is to relocate them. If the new law passes, all captured animal must be killed. This includes animals like raccoons, opossums, and coyotes. No longer will animals be relocated, instead they will be killed in a misguided attempt to control the population. Realistic the only reason such drastic measures are being considered is to appease farmers who claim the wild coyotes are attacking their livestock. It is insane to be legally required to kill any and every raccoon and coyote that is trapped. An animal control officer was quoted as saying “I’m going to have to take a mama raccoon and babies off of her fur and put them in a box and gas them.” Please sign and share the mandatory killing of innocent wild animals must not be allowed to pass.

Ban Acid Attacks

In India, incidents of attacks against cows are on the rise. Despite being a sacred animal, the cows are still subjected to cruelty. Cow was even attacked with acid. In the state of Odisha, India two cows were found with their skins peeling off. Someone had thrown acid on the poor cows. The cows were found writhing in pain and suffering from severe burns. In the state of Karmana, India another five cows were attacked by acid in the span of a week. All five suffered severe burns. Even worst the cows were strays who just happen to be passing by. Thankfully all of the cows have received veterinary care and are expected to make a recovery. But the next cow that gets attacked by acid might not be so lucky and even if recovery is possible, the poor creature will still be scarred for life. In India, acids are sold openly and with little to no regulation despite a ban that was enacted. Please sign and share, together we can urge the Indian government to end the sale of acid once and for all.

Ban Animal Traps

Hunting traps are devices of torture. The traps maimed and crush bones, most animals caught in it either bleed out or attempt to escape by chewing their own limb off. The problem is the traps are indiscriminate, which leads to cases of pet cats triggering the trap. Recently a kitten was found caught in one of these inhumane traps. The poor kitten was injured so badly that he had to be euthanized. He was found underweight, and in so much pain that he unable to eat or drink water. The little kitten was stuck in the trap for days, unable to move and constantly calling for help. By the time authorities finally responded it was too late. Sadly cases like this are far too common, as long as steel-jaw traps are legal more and more innocent animal will suffer. Even China, a country that eats about every animal has banned the use of such traps. Yet the traps are still perfectly legal in the United States. Please sign and share, together we can end the use of these torture devices that harm hundreds of animals every year. Animals like that poor kitten who life was cut short by human cruelty.

Shut Down University of Utah

The University of Utah is no better than a torture chamber. It is a lab that has run experiments on vulnerable shelter kittens and puppies. It is a lab that has racked up over a dozen federal animal welfare regulations. It is the lab that ran the following experiments: - Chemical injection into the brain of 7-week old kittens - Drilling a hole into the skull of a cat and    attaching electrodes to it- Burning a macaque monkey to death- Killing multiple rabbits and mice by running   unapproved experiments - Heart experiments that involve the removal of a beagle's heart The University of Utah after numerous and repeated violations has received an official letter of warning from the government, yet the facility is still running and still experimenting on helpless animals who deserve better. To make matters worst, non of the experiments yielded any tangible result.  With your help, we can invoke the facilities experimentation licenses and finally shut this torture chamber down. Please sign and share, the University of Utah's animal experiments must end.

Ban Ear Cropping and Tail Docking in Dogs

Ear cropping and tail docking in dogs is an inhumane procedure that serves no purpose other than changing the appearance of a dog. It is really forced mutilation so that makes dogs look prettier or fiercer.This practice is illegal in many countries in Europe but it has yet to be outlawed in the US, where it can still be performed by a licensed Veterinarian. More outrageous is the stance held by the American Kennel Association who encourages those procedures for dog shows. Let us learn more about each of those revolting practices. Ear Cropping:Cropped ears is a process in which the ears of certain breeds are transformed to look alert and erect. The process can only be done by a licensed veterinarian and only if the owner is dedicated to the pet’s post-op with any aftercare that is needed. Dog ear cropping is usually done whenever the pup is 8 to 10 weeks old.This procedure is always performed with general anesthesia, because both ears have many nerve endings, and without it the dog would be in extreme pain. The cropping is done by removing about two thirds of the pinna, also known as the floppy part of the ears. Ear cropping has been marred with myths such as preventing ear infections, being a standard procedure for certain breeds, or even being like spaying/neutering. Another more preposterous myth alleges that ear cropping is not painful to the animal. There is of course no evidence to substantiate those claims but we do not know for a fact that such a procedure is extremely painful for the dog and that it requires very thorough post-op care. The American Kennel Club supports ear cropping in order to maintain the standards of appearance for certain breeds, and they even claim that it protects dogs' ears from being bitten and helps them hear, for example – all unsubstantiated claims. Meanwhile, the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Animal Hospital Association oppose it.   Tail Docking:Puppies' tails are docked during the first five days of life, either surgically or with a constricting band. It involves removing a portion of the tail, the length being cut off varies depending on the breed. Dogs with docked tails include Cocker Spaniels, Rottweilers, and Yorkshire Terriers. Currently 62 breeds recognized by the AKC have docked tails. Some dogs, such as the Old English Sheepdog and Australian. As with ear cropping, there are many myths associated with tail docking such as being a pain-free procedure since it is done at birth, or even that some dogs do not need their tail. Let us squash this last claim right away. The tail is not a limb but is an appendage; it is the distal section of the spinal column and comprises vertebrae, muscle, nerves and blood vessels. The muscular structure and activity are an integral part of the normal bodily shape and function, especially in the perineal region. Thus removal of the tail in an immature puppy may lead to improper development of these muscles (Canfield 1986). A relationship has also been suggested between tail docking and submissive urinary incontinence in puppies. The tail in a dog is used as a counter-balance in various locomotory activities. A dog with a tail is able to express its emotional state, assertion of social status, acceptance of a subordinate or equal position, or willingness to fight. It has been suggested that the absence of a tail may, in some instances, predispose a dog to unwarranted aggression (Wansborough 1996). Unfortunately those facts have not curtailed those practices, which have even become popular among the youth wanting their dogs to look fierce. Other than the aesthetic, a reason one may chop a dog’s ears off would be for dog fighting. If they don’t have ears or a long tail, they won't bleed as much since they won't get beaten in those areas. What is more outrageous is the fact that the media abounds with tutorial videos of DIY ear cropping and recommendations on how and when to do it. The lack of legal ramifications is producing a breed of misguided dog owners and unscrupulous pet owners who choose to mutilate their pup for their own personal gains. We need to stop them, education is not enough, it must become illegal. PLEASE SUPPORT THE AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) IN BANNING THIS PROCEDURE. DOG OWNERS WHO "MUTILATE" THEIR DOGS MUST BE PROSECUTED. Photo credit: Stray Rescue of St. Louis

Save The Seals Of Namibia

Seal Hunting is a crime against nature, which is why it is banned in almost every country. Every country except Greenland, Canada, and Namibia. As a matter of face, Namibia is the only country in the Southern Hemisphere hunting seals. Rough estimates put Namibia as the second largest hunt after Canada. Namibia has killed more than 400,00 seals. Averaging about 8000 a year. Just like in Canada, the baby seals are clubbed to death. While the bigger males are riddled with bullets. Unlike the Canadian harp seal, the Cape fur seals in Namibia are agile on land, resulting in multiple blows in order to kill them. It's not uncommon to see baby seals throwing up milk while trying to escape or mother seals suffering miscarriages due to the trauma. The little seal pups are turned into fur, while the genitals of the males are ground down into traditional Chinese medicine. The blabber that is left over is used to make omega 3 pills. So far Namibia has exported 33,000 gallons of seal blabber, 5000 pounds of genitals, and 400,000 pelts. It is beyond cruel to club a seal pup to death, yet Namibia remains the only country in the Southern Hemisphere to continue this practice. Please sign and share, together we can outlaw seal hunting in the entire southern hemisphere.

Stop The Killing Of Monkeys

It is human nature to blame others for our own problems. Such is the case with the yellow fever outbreak in Brazil. Howler monkeys are being killed by villagers who blame them for the spread of the disease. So far over 238 monkeys have been found dead, 69% of them showed signs of dying from unnatural causes. A majority showed signs of being beaten to death. The villagers have a misconception that the monkeys are spreading the disease. That cannot be further from the truth. The howler monkeys are just as valuable to yellow fever as human. In fact, they serve as early indicators of a yellow fever outbreak. The true culprits are a mosquito, but that hasn't stopped the local villagers from attacking the monkeys in a misguided attempt to stop the outbreak. The monkeys are a protected species and anyone who attacks them must be charged to the fullest extent of the law. Unfortunately, the local government isn't keen on prosecuting the monkey murderers. With your help that can change, please sign and share, together we will urge the government to punish those who murder the innocent monkeys.

Ban Turtle Farms

The Cayman Turtle Center is a horrendous place. It's a place that breeds and farms endangered sea turtle for meat. The turtles are kept in abysmal conditions until their slaughter. At the center, the turtles who are solitary in the wild, are kept in concrete tanks. Hundred are crammed together in a single tank. The turtles out of stress and hunger resort to cannibalizing each other. On top of that workers have been observed dumping chlorine onto the turtles. Also, the center has a terrible track record. In 2012, 300 turtles died during a heat wave, two years later another 300 after a bacteria outbreak. The turtles go through all of this abuse before being killed for their meat. Studies have shown that turtle meat contains traces of Salmonella and E. coli. As well as metallic elements such as lead and mercury. Certain species even act as a carrier for cholera and Vibrio infections. Despite the serious health risk people still farm and consume the endangered turtles. The government of the Cayman Islands refuses to shut this horrendous place down. Instead, they have subsidized the operation, spending millions in taxpayer money to keep the facility open. But with your help, we can pressure the government to reconsider. Please sign and share, the turtles need your help. Thank You.
