Make All Shelters in USA to be "NO KILL SHELTERS"
Every day around the country many dogs are killed in shelters, just because they need space. In fact approximately 3 million dogs and cats die each year. Precious dogs that can still have many years to live and have a lot of love to offer. Euthanasia should be reserved only for animals who are suffering or are too aggressive to safely reside in our communities. But animals that die are so loving, and their trusting faces are just asking for love and companionship. This is barbaric. Let's do something about this cruel practice. Let's put a stop to this unnecessary murdering. We can educate the public about spaying and neutering, about adopting instead of buying, about population control. People need to be aware of how many loving dogs are killed in USA, just because the shelters lack space and funding. But stopping the shelters from euthanizing animals is not enough to save them. Others will find a way to get rid of what they perceive to be an unwanted pet. And unscrupulous breeders are off the hook. We must do more… We need more shelters, so there would be enough spaces for every dog, and we need NO KILL SHELTERS. Shelters should be a temporary transition place for animals. The term shelter means to protect, not to kill. and the animals should be taken care of until they are adopted. This can be achievable. We can help getting the communities involved too, to donate and help, to serve as volunteers, to "sponsor a pet" in the shelter. Even if you can’t adopt a pet, we might be able to help there, we can advocate to get him/her adopted, we can volunteer at the shelter, we can provide funding. The shelters can be encouraged to provide a once a month "sale" to the dogs that have being there longer, for people to get them cheaper or free. We can help with better advertising of animals put up for adoption. Sometimes people don’t have the money to adopt in a particular moment, but they can still offer a loving home to a dog. Instead of killing them, give them for free to someone suitable that will love them and offer a home. The rescue groups do the impossible to bring back to life animals they find abused, neglected, and to the brink of dying, many times thanks to private funding to help with vet expenses. They also advertise and advocate daily for pets in shelters that are at risk of getting euthanized. But in the end many don’t get to go to loving homes. In those high killing shelters, if someone doesn’t rush in a short period of time to adopt these poor dogs or cats that have suffered so much, that have overcome so much, at the end, after all that effort, they will get killed. They are the unwanted, the forgotten, yet beautiful pets that all they need is more time to find a loving home. This is senseless, unfair, and tragic. There is no excuse that they are murdering healthy, previously owned, neglected, abused dogs and cats or highly adoptable. While we are disgusted by events like the Yulin festival in China, we let millions of our own animals die every day, every year. Let's do something. Let’s be better. Let’s save them. Let us advocate for only NO KILL SHELTERS unless the animal is suffering or violent. And more importantly, let’s treat the root of the problem: lobby for laws that are effective in reducing unplanned births and shelter intakes by developing low-cost or free sterilization programs for dogs and cats, laws that limit the number of animals bred for profit, laws that promote responsible pet ownership like contracts, laws for pet stores to carry only shelter pets and providing better education for pet owners. And finally, please get out there and help out. Together we can make a change. Their lives matter. Every animal deserves a chance to get their forever home. Some may take longer than others, but there should not be a time limit on life.

Petition to The White House
It's time for Pit Bull Reforms
It’s time to stop the abuse, the cruelty and victimization against pit bulls. We need to educate the public, to have real enforceable laws that protect these poor innocent creatures. Pit bulls are not the problem. Pit bulls are domesticated dogs, not savage beasts. The whole breed should not be destroyed because of a select few that have been illegally trained to be aggressive fighters. Too many innocent puppy and adult dogs are being euthanized and not allowed to be adopted, dogs whose lives can be saved. We need to stop punishing the dogs and start punishing those responsible, the humans who break the law. Did you know that the American Pit Bull Terrier was the most popular family dog at the beginning of the 20th century and in fact, was once called the "nanny dog", because of their extreme loyalty and kindness, especially with children? What happened? Unscrupulous people happened. Because of their loyalty and strength, they were used for the wrong reasons, for dog fighting, for bad behavior. And now, because of misinformation and media frenzy, a whole breed of dog is being destroyed. Facts: It is estimated that for every ONE pit bull that attacks someone, over 5 million DON'T!Most dog behaviorists and trainers will tell you, a dog is almost 100% a product of its owner and the training it receives, and NOTHING to do with the breed.In North America, not only are pit bulls not in the top 5 most likely breeds to attack, they are actually behind shepherds, collies, and even golden retrievers!There is no scientific evidence that shows genetics are a key to aggression or "unpredictability".Pit bulls’ jaws DO NOT lock, yet another ridiculous myth. Every year 1.2 million shelter dogs are euthanized. Of these 1.2 million dogs, 40% are American Pit Bull Terriers, more commonly known as Pit Bulls.The ASPCA conducted a study that showed the Pit Bull Terrier came in second for having the highest temperament (lowest aggression). Pit bulls are naturally loyal, caring towards people and children, and wonderful family dogs. Yet society has demonized pit bulls just because they fear them. Yet this is sadly misplaced. It is wrong and unjust to paint a picture of a certain breed of dogs as all being vicious or unpredictable. Pit bulls have been labeled "dangerous" because of the reputation forced upon them from people using them as fighting dogs. It could have been any breed, but it was Pit bulls who are tortured and forced to fight and become pawns to human greed. They are bred specifically for the purpose of fighting and have no chance for a normal life unless they are rescued. If these pit bulls do not want to fight or lose a fight they are punished by the most inhumane methods and die unimaginable deaths. They are beaten, hung, starved, electrocuted, slammed onto the ground, shot and set on fire when they are still alive and thrown away. Ignorance and sensationalized reporting has led to the deception that all pit bulls have an innate desire to attack anything in its path. Pit bulls have been banned from communities and as this happens people are forced to give up their family members whom they love. These pets face death and again they are victimized by an uninformed government that is supposed to protect them. It’s time to set aside the misguided prejudice about pit bulls. We ask that our Representatives learn the truth about Pit bulls, talk to pit bull owners, talk to veterinarians that understand pit bulls, visit a pit bull rescue. With this knowledge, you may save an innocent life. These dogs are thriving members of society when placed with the right person who cares. There are countless stories of pit bulls saving lives and helping people. These stories remain untold and in the shadows. If we are not helping to stop the victimizing of pit bulls, we are re-victimizing them all over again. We ask our Representatives to introduce a bill that will stop the banning or discrimination of a certain dog breed in the United States and to help protect these animals. For a state to ban a breed is leaving countless dogs abandoned in shelters, creating overpopulation. These dogs are then euthanized because of breed specific legislation instead of anything they did wrong. This is discrimination. Isn’t that what America has fought against throughout history? WE DEMAND PIT BULL REGULATIONS THAT ENFORCE LAWS FOR: PET REGRISTRATION FOR PIT BULL OWNERS TO BE ALLOW FOR TRACK OF ABUSE, DOG FIGHTING AND ILEGAL BREADERS. STOP BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION (BSL) AGAINST PIT BULLS ENFORCEMENT OF SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAMS FOR PIT BULLS DOG FIGHTINGTO BE CLASSIFIED AS CLASS A FELONY TEMPORARY PIT BULL BREEDING BAN OF 3 YEARS. Remember it's a dog that bites when it does bites; it's not a breed that bites. Pit bulls have been victims of humans for so long. It's time to stop the ignorance and cruelty done to these dogs. They are beautiful, intelligent, loyal and loving dogs. They deserve the same treatment that all other dogs. They deserve better.

Petition to Riverside County Animal Control - San Jacinto - All Shelters - USA Government
Save the abused dogs rescued from a cruelty case at San Jacinto from being euthanized.
Sasha, Ashley, Gary, Byron, Libby, Paris, Timothy, Charles, Elsa & Mary, are survivors of animal cruelty and abuse. They were found in a home with 10 dead dogs and about 25 other neglected and emaciated pit bulls at a trash-strewn property in La Sierra, California. THEY DID NOT SURVIVE SUCH CRUELTY JUST TO BE SENT TO A SHELTER AND BE KILLED. They, like many other dogs, are killed every day in shelters. But their story is different, it's heartbreaking. They are pit bulls. Pit bulls are tortured and forced to fight. Most of them are bred for the purpose of fighting and have no chance for a normal life unless they are rescued. If these pit bulls do not want to fight or lose a fight they are punished by the most inhumane methods and die unimaginable deaths. They are beaten, hung, starved, electrocuted, slammed onto the ground, shot and set on fire. When they are still alive are thrown away. And when they are injured they are improperly treated and set in a dark place alone and in pain without any compassion. Pit bulls that are used as bait dogs are not medically tended to at all. They feel pain, they feel fear and they feel and express love. These dogs are afraid and they should be because they see more horror in their short lifetime than most humans see in theirs. This case of animal neglect and torture was particularly heinous, and has attracted attention from around the globe. See the link from ABC News http://abc7.com/news/neglected-dead-pit-bulls-found-at-riverside-county-home/1435515/ The laws must be toughened and we need to send a strong message that any animal abuse is not tolerated in our society. We ask our government to do the right thing and toughen the statutes to make the punishment fit the crime. We also lobby at state and national levels to strengthen laws protecting animals, increasing the likelihood that animal cruelty will be taken seriously by the legal system. People who harm animals may also harm people. THEY SURVIVED THIS. BUT THEY WERE TAKEN TO A SHELTER. A shelter should be a place for giving temporary protection from something harmful. A shelter is a place that is supposed to protect, shield, cover, preserve, guard and defend those who seek help. Yet, they are now sitting on a cold shelter on death row waiting to be euthanized, when they should be protected. Please show them love and no more abuse!! If we are not helping to stop this, we are re-victimizing them all over again. They are currently residing (waiting to be euthanized) at Riverside County Animal Control - San Jacinto Valley Animal Campus 581 South Grand Avenue San Jacinto, CA 92582 Phone Number: (951) 358-7387.

Petition to Sylvester Turner, Houston Police Department
Justice for Steven Ethan Jones
On November 12, 2016, 19-year-old Steven Ethan Jones was reported missing by his girlfriend and his father after he hadn't returned home. That day, he was with Darian Hammond, his girlfriend, at the Houston Zoo. She dropped him off at home and later that night when she stopped receiving responses from him she filed a missings person’s report. On the morning of November 13, 2016, police identified a dead body on 2920 was Ethan. He was hit by a car in a hit-and-run, and left on the side of the road. When police found him, they couldn’t identify him by description. They identified him with Darian's ID that was left with him and found the report she filed, and also by a shoe that he was wearing that was removed when he was hit. It wasn’t until six and a half months after his death that the car that hit him was found. Ethan’s blood was found on the car within the damage and under the front. The persons who owned the car were taken to court and the case was presented to a grand jury. When the case was presented, there wasn’t enough evidence to indict anyone. The alleged driver walked free and has no charges to their name. The only way for his case to be re-evaluated is if more evidence arises, but to our knowledge, there were no witnesses or cameras near the intersection he was hit at. Therefore, there is no more evidence, unless a witness steps up. A week or so after his death, a video of Ethan's dismembered body was sent to people from his previous high school. The video circulated around and eventually, his girlfriend's mother came across the video. It is believed that whoever recorded this video may be the people who first found Ethan and may know at least anything that could help. As of now, no witnesses have come forward, meaning whoever took this video hasn't spoken. Ethan’s friends, family, and loved ones continue to fight. The only thing we want is for there to be justice for Ethan. No one deserves to lose their life so soon, but the person behind the wheel didn’t see a living person. They saw someone who wasn’t worthy of help, who wasn’t worthy of justice. So we are working for justice to be brought. The case wasn’t taken as far as it could have been taken, and we want for Ethan to gain attention hoping that his case will be presented to a new jury, or that someone who may have been a witness may find this and come forward. Even if it’s presented, and they are found not guilty again, there is still progress and that’s what we want. To all who are reading this, thank you for your time and thank you for your help. We won't ever stop fighting for Ethan until he get's the justice he deserves. Here is an updated news article from ABC13: http://abc13.com/news/family-devastated-after-driver-not-indicted-in-hit-and-run/2133316/ And if anyone is interested in hearing more about Ethan's story, follow @justiceforjones on Instagram.

End the Philippines War on Drugs
How many deaths is enough to realize an unviable solution? Extrajudicial killings are not the answer, the world need to hear what is really going on with Duterte. Read the Human Rights Watch Philippines World Report to educate yourself on the truth. Help end the Philippines War on Drugs by bringing this world issue and its human rights violations to light. Human Rights Watch is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization made up of human rights professionals. Collecting information, statistics, and stories, the organization publishes many reports on human rights violating issues. They are collect information from almost 90 countries and their publications are read and referenced internationally. One of their larger and current initiatives is on the long and ongoing war on drugs in the Philippines. The drug war began on June 30, 2016, announced by current and long running President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte. Duterte’s domestic policy has focused on stopping the illegal drug trade by commencing the Philippine Drug War. In an effort to control the drug trafficking, the government encourages police enforced brutality on anyone affiliated with drugs, which has ended up making many innocent people the victim of this war. The government has recently pulled out of the ICC (International Criminal Court) and has a track record of false claims and reports on the events in the country. Human Rights Watch has reported that 12000 Filipinos have been killed, 2555 because of police brutality. Despite intervention and an increase in negative attention, President Duterte has vowed to continue this drug war campaign. The Philippine War on Drugs is entirely a world issue. In addition to violating an extent of human rights, the ongoing conflict is challenging its physical borders. Human Rights Watch has done a tremendous amount of work to cover the events of the war on drugs; bringing attention to both the severity of the issue and the truth behind what is being falsified by the Philippines government. An annual report of the drug war has been updated by Human Rights Watch, detailing each of the human rights violations of this conflict. This war violates several human rights through extrajudicial killings and attacks on human rights defenders, children, journalists. There have been several deaths by police, especially to innocent citizens. Also, the government falsified evidence on the death toll in an effort to justify the killings as ‘obstructing justice’; “Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) data indicates that police operations resulted in the deaths of 3,906 suspected drug users and dealers from July 1, 2016, to September 26, 2017. But unidentified gunmen have killed thousands more, bringing the total death toll to more than 12,000, according to credible media reports” (“World Report 2018: Rights Trends in Philippines.”). President Duterte’s campaign is very public in its support of violent police intervention. However, human rights are further violated by targeting specific groups. Duterte has sought to cut funding for human rights, giving groups a smaller voice and making them a larger target. “In August, Duterte encouraged police attacks against human rights groups and advocates, instructing police, “If they are obstructing justice, you shoot them””(“World Report 2018: Rights Trends in Philippines.”). Another group targeted is children. “In July, a Philippine children’s rights group published data indicating that police have killed 56 children since the start of the “drug war.” Most were killed while in the company of adults who were the apparent target of the shooting. Both Duterte and Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II have dismissed those child killings as “collateral damage”...In August, the government approved mandatory drug testing for high school and college students and applicants. This will effectively allow the police to extend their abusive anti-drug operations to high schools and university campuses” (“World Report 2018: Rights Trends in Philippines.”). The Duterte government is looking to end the illegal drug trade by killing any ‘relative’ aspects, in this case “collateral damage” is extremely problematic term by normalizing and justifying the mass innocent killings. Yet another targeted group are journalists attempting to cover the issue. “On social media, pro-Duterte trolls and supporters – some of them officially working for the government – have threatened violence against human rights advocates, including Human Rights Watch staff and journalists who report critically on the “drug war”” (“Philippines: Duterte's 'Drug War' Claims 12,000+ Lives.”). It is not only the violation of human rights making this conflict a world issue, the extent of this violence has turned caused the world to get involved. First, Human Rights Watch involvement in the issue, sending journalists and human rights advocates to report on the events, is crossing borders to make this an geopolitical concern. Deciding who is going to enter the Philippines to involve themselves in the conflict, and the Philippines response are all geopolitical decisions. A more recent concern that has stirred yet further geopolitical decision making is the fact that the Philippines has withdrawn from the International Criminal Court, potentially in hopes of avoiding charged based on false claims. However, this will not be effective for some time. “President Duterte's spokesman, Harry Roque, dismissed the ICC's examination as a "waste of time and resources… "This announcement is a warning to leaders around the world that those who order or incite crimes against humanity including murder will not be able to get away with it, and will be subject to investigation under international law," said James Gomez, Amnesty's south-east Asia director” (BBC, Feb. 8, 2018). “Mr. Duterte temporarily placed the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in charge of the drug war last year after police officers were found to have killed three teenagers and then lied about how the boys died. News of their deaths prompted protests and a Senate investigation. The exact number of people killed since Mr. Duterte’s drug war took effect in 2017 is unknown. The government says fewer than 4,000 suspects have been killed, but Human Rights Watch last week estimated the figure at more than 12,000” (Villamor, Feb. 2, 2018). Following several false claims and extrajudicial killings, international concern for the liability of the Philippines has risen. “The truth is, the Philippine government needs to answer for the more than 12,000 lives lost without due process in this brutal campaign across the country. The government should stop depicting itself as the victim,” said Human Rights Watch Philippine researcher Carlos Conde” (Gamil, Inquirer News). As the drug war continues in its second year, the proof that extraducial and targeted killings are not a viable solution to the drug trade. Human Rights Watch has made itself a major figurehead in the involvement of the Philippine War on Drugs. However, due to the extent of the violence and targeting of human rights activists and journalists, the groups main initiative has been bringing awareness and up to date, true report on the issue. This has not altered the impact of the initiative though, as Human Rights Watch has asserted itself as a very reliable source; providing true statistics on the killings. The group itself and affiliate reporters have been quoted as a reliable source in many articles concerning the drug war; including CBS News, The New York Times, and BBC. A CBS article suggested Duterte is violating women's rights; ”The U.S.-based group Human Rights Watch said the remark last week was the latest in a "series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements he has made about women" that encourage state forces to commit sexual violence during armed conflicts” (CBS News, Feb. 13, 2018). These secondary sources not only provide coverage as the HRW reports do, they incorporate subsequent information that isn’t directly in the reports.
