Petition to Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kılıç
Sign: Justice for Dog with Ears Cut Off for Selfies
In a now-viral image circulating throughout Turkish social media, two young men pose proudly next to a cowering dog with bloody stumps for ears, each man holding what appears to be a dog ear in his hand. According to Turkish news, the pair are suspected to be involved in dogfighting, and were reportedly punishing one of their losing dogs. The Turkish justice system has now let the men off with a fine of just over what is equivalent to $1,000 U.S. dollars. And no jail time. This lax punishment is not acceptable for inflicting such reprehensible harm on an animal. These men's shockingly light sentence is not even close to proportional to the pain and suffering they senselessly inflicted on an innocent animal — let alone the multiple dogs presumably forced to tear each other to shreds in fights staged for human entertainment. Animals are not toys. They are not property. They have thoughts and feelings, as backed up by research demonstrating that dogs are just as sentient as a human child. What’s more, cruelty to animals is irrefutably linked to cruelty to human beings. This incident of grossly inhumane treatment highlights the urgent need for the Turkish government to revisit their animal cruelty laws. Please sign this petition now to call on Turkey's Ambassador to the United States, Serdar Kılıç, to advocate for stronger punishment for animal abuse. Dogs like this deserve justice, and animal torture must be treated like the serious crime that it truly is.
Petition to Mayor Pedro Santisteve Roche of Zaragoza, Spain
Tell Friendship City, Paju, Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture/Consumption of Dogs.
For more actions you can take please visit: http://koreandogs.org/friendship-city-campaign-paju-south-korea-zaragoza-spain/ Mayor Pedro Santisteve Roche of Zaragoza, Spain: Tell Friendship City, Paju, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats. Señor Alcaldeso de Algemesí, Pedro Santisteve Roche: Comuníquele por favor a la Ciudad Amiga de Paju, Corea del Sur, que nos oponemos a la tortura y el consumo de perros y gatos. (Scroll down for the Spanish translation) Zaragoza has become Friendship City with Paju, South Korea. This relationship was no doubt formed in the spirit of friendship and for your mutual benefit, for business links and trade etc. And, while Zaragoza would have expected to learn about the differences in cultural practices of the Paju citizens, we feel certain that the your city would have hesitated to form such a Friendship City relationship had your city known about the aberrant and cruel practices routinely carried out in the dog and cat meat trades in Paju and all over South Korea. Lucrative, but illegal trades which carry on unchallenged: with no enforcement of the laws and no punishment for those violating them. South Korea is the home to global companies, such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK and POSCO, which is why it is so shocking that an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year within South Korea, because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry; while the majority of those Koreans, who don’t actually participate in this offensive trade, show a profound indifference by doing nothing at all to stop it. We know how loyal and faithful our dogs across the world are; and we all ask a lot of them - they serve us in innumerable ways: farm work, war work, police and guard duties, search and rescue, help for the disabled, guiding and guardianship, and, of course, as our loving and trusting companions. Dogs were first domesticated many thousands of years ago, and so much do they want to be part of our ‘human’ family that they have learned to understand our gestures and our language - the language of another species, which shows remarkable willingness and intelligence. In Paju there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty. Please watch this undercover video by animal rights activists in South Korea: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for human consumption yet these laws are routinely and blatantly ignored. We believe that there must surely be some social responsibility for the representatives of one city to take a stand against any wrongdoing being sanctioned or ignored by their Friendship City. As such, we ask you to please urge Paju Mayor Jae-Hong Lee to take action, and to state that Zaragoza and its citizens demand that Paju issue an official document mandating that the following existing Korean laws be enforced by its government officials, police and judges: Unauthorized processing of food waste fed to dogs in the meat trade is a violation of Wastes Control Act, Article 15-2, Article 25, Section 3. Suppliers of food waste and transporters of food waste to dog meat farms are violating this regulation. Food waste fed to dogs in the dog meat trade is a violation of Control of Livestock and Fish Feed Act, Article 14, Section 1 & 2. Unauthorized collection of food waste and the act of feeding it to dogs in the meat trade is in violation of this regulation. Excrement and resulting environmental damage produced as a by-product of the illegal dog meat farm is a violation of Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta Article 11. The excrement produced at dog meat farms causes environmental damage to the immediate and surrounding area. The act of slaughtering of dogs for human consumption is a violation of Animal Protection Act Article 8, Section 1, Clause 4. The act of slaughtering of a dog, without a justifiable ground – such as out of necessity for veterinary treatment, or in circumstances of immediate threat, harm or damage to human life or property, is a violation. The slaughter of dogs by electrocution is a violation of Animal Protection Act, Article 8, Section 1, Clause 1. Inflicting injury or death to any animal by the following means: battery by tools, exposure to drugs, exposure to extreme heat or fire, electrocution and drowning is subject to legal punishment. Therefore, the routine slaughter of dogs by butchers and farmers by these methods is in violation of the Act. Further, electrocution as a method of slaughter is internationally recognized as an inherently cruel method of slaughter and banned globally. Slaughter of dogs from unauthorized slaughterhouse is a violation of Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, Article 7 Section 1. The Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, states that dogs are officially recognized and classified as “animals” that are “prohibited from being slaughtered and distributed as food for human consumption”. Therefore, those vendors operating dog slaughterhouses are operating outside of the parameters of the law and in violation of the law. Slaughter of dogs for his/her own consumption is a violation of Animal Protection Act, Article 10. The intent of the Act is to ensure that no animal is slaughtered in a cruel or revolting manner, and shall be free from unnecessary pain, fear, or stress during the process of slaughter. Therefore, only humane way of slaughtering dogs would be by euthanasia (lethal injection). All currently practiced methods of slaughter by butchers, farmers and traders excludes euthanasia as a method of slaughter, therefore they are all in breach of this Act. This is also a violation of Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act Article 7 Section 1 Clause 2. According to the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, slaughter of animals for his/her own consumption is allowed only for the livestock animals that are publically announced as classification of livestock in the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act and dogs are not classified here. Display and sale of dog carcass in traditional outdoor markets is a violation of Food Sanitation Act, Article 4, 5. Violation of laws banning sale of harmful food due to the contamination from unsanitary and illegal slaughter of the animal and display of the dog carcass. For example, dog carcass are routinely contaminated by microorganisms that cause human diseases and food poisoning which can lead to serious and life threatening health complications. There are also strict laws which ban the sale of meat from sick animals, due to the fact that there is no quality control or formal monitoring of slaughter practices in the dog meat trade it is very likely that violation of these laws is happening routinely. Dog meat restaurants’ sale of dog meat soup made with dog carcass from an unknown source is a violation of Food Sanitation Act Article 44 Section 1 Clause 1. Uninspected livestock products must not be transported, stored, displayed, sold or used for manufacturing or processing of food for human consumption. Please refer to the legal information regarding the dog meat consumption in South Korea published by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates): http://koreandogs.org/kara-publishes-legal-information-booklet-ending-dog-meat-consumption/ We believe these demands are in line with the spirit and goals of Friendship cities to establish friendly communications in the areas of tourism, commerce, cultural exchange and public health. International coverage of the brutal dog and cat meat trade in South Korea has stained Paju, South Korea’s image. Don’t let it also tarnish your City’s Friendship city relationship. The time to end this tragedy is now. The favor of your reply is requested. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- [Spanish] Señor Alcaldeso de Algemesí, Pedro Santisteve Roche: Comuníquele por favor a la Ciudad Amiga de Paju, Corea del Sur, que nos oponemos a la tortura y el consumo de perros y gatos. La ciudad de Algemesí se ha convertido en Ciudad Amiga de Paju, Corea del Sur. Esta relación indudablemente surge de un espíritu amistoso que las beneficia mutuamente a través de vínculos culturales, comerciales, etc. Pero, mientras Algemesí quizá hubiera esperado conocer diferentes modalidades y prácticas culturales de los habitantes de la ciudad Amiga, estamos seguros de que habría dudado en establecer aquellos vínculos si hubiera sabido de las prácticas crueles, aberrantes, que imperan dentro del comercio de carne de perro y gato en Paju y en toda Corea del Sur. Se trata de negocios tan lucrativos como ilegales que operan sin ser objetados, al margen de la ley, sin que les apliquen penas a quienes la violan. Siendo Corea del Sur asiento de compañías globales como Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK y POSCO, resulta sumamente impactante que casi 2,5 millones de perros sean torturados y sacrificados cada año en Corea del Sur sólo por la codicia de los comerciantes de carne de perro y por el paladar de algunos comensales, mientras la mayoría de los coreanos que no participa de este ofensivo comercio muestra profunda indiferencia, sin hacer nada para acabar con él. Sabemos cuán leales y fieles son los perros en todo el mundo, y cuánto les exigimos a tantos de ellos que prestan servicio en innumerables formas, sea en trabajo de granjas, en guerras, o como canes de policía, como guardianes, o en operativos de búsqueda y rescate, tanto como al servicio de discapacitados, sirviendo de guía, protegiendo, y muy especialmente como amorosos compañeros en quienes nosotros confiamos. Los perros fueron domesticados hace miles de años, y tanto quieren formar parte de la familia "humana" que han aprendido a interpretar nuestros gestos e idiomas, es decir, el lenguaje de una especie distinta de la propia, mostrando así su notable disposición e inteligencia. En Paju existen numerosas granjas de perros, mataderos, mercados y restaurantes donde los canes, tras ser torturados durante su vida, terminan siendo sacrificados de la manera más inhumana, por electrocución, colgados o golpeados y luego arrojados al agua hirviendo incluso estando a veces con vida todavía. En muchos de esos predios, los perros son muertos y desmembrados a la vista de otros canes cautivos aterrorizados en sus jaulas. Esto ocurre en público, a plena luz del día. Así también, las mascotas perdidas o robadas a menudo terminan en manos de esta industria que las somete a la misma crueldad. Por favor, vea este video captado por activistas que defienden los derechos de los animales en Corea del Sur: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q Hay leyes en Corea del Sur contrarias a la venta de perros y gatos para consumo humano, pero son rutinaria y descaradamente ignoradas. Pensamos que la responsabilidad social cuenta para los representantes de una ciudad, moviéndolos a tomar cierta posición frente a los actos ilícitos de su ciudad amiga o Amiga, ya sea para sancionarlos o ignorarlos. Por esta razón, le solicitamos que inste a involucrarse al Alcalde de Paju Jae-Hong Lee, reconociendo que sus ciudadanos le solicitan emitir un documento oficial que ordene a funcionarios, policías y jueces cumplir con la siguiente reglamentación coreana ya existente: No está autorizado el procesar desechos de comida para alimentar a los animales de consumo humano; es una violación a la Ley de Control de Desechos, Artículo 15-2, Artículo 25, Sección 3. Quienes proveen y transportan los residuos de alimentos a los criaderos de perros violan esta reglamentación. Los desechos alimentarios usados como alimento para perros destinados a carne, viola la Ley de Control de Ganado y Peces, Artículo 14, Sección 1 y 2. La recolección no autorizada de desperdicios de alimentos y su consumo por perros destinados a carne, viola el presente Reglamento. Los excrementos y los daños ambientales resultantes, subproductos de la actividad de granjas ilegales de perros, violan la Ley de Gestión y Uso de Excrementos de Ganado, Artículo 11. Tales residuos causan daños ambientales a las zonas circundantes. La faena misma de perros para consumo humano contraviene la Ley de Protección Animal, Artículo 8, Sección 1, Cláusula 4. El acto de sacrificar un perro sin un fundamento justificable – eutanasia veterinaria, o circunstancias de amenaza inmediata, o daño a la vida o a la propiedad de personas – constituye una violación a la ley antedicha. La matanza de perros por electrocución viola la Ley de Protección Animal, Artículo 8, Sección 1, Cláusula 1. Infligir lesiones o muerte a cualquier animal por los siguientes métodos: abatimiento con herramientas, por exposición a drogas, exposición a calor extremo o fuego, electrocución y ahogamiento, son objeto de penalización. Por lo tanto, la matanza habitual de perros llevada a cabo por carniceros y granjeros según los métodos descriptos viola la ley. Además, la electrocución como forma de sacrificio está internacionalmente reconocida como método cruel y prohibido a nivel mundial. El sacrificio de perros en mataderos no autorizados viola la ley de Control Sanitario de Productos de Ganadería, Artículo 7, Sección 1. La Ley de Control Sanitario de Productos Ganaderos establece que los perros están oficialmente reconocidos y clasificados como "animales prohibidos de ser sacrificados y distribuidos para consumo humano". Por lo tanto, los vendedores que operan mataderos de perros lo hacen completamente al margen de parámetros legales y en abierta violación de ellos. La matanza de perros para consumo viola el artículo 10 de la Ley de Protección Animal. La intención de esta ley es asegurar que ningún animal sea sacrificado de manera cruel o repugnante, y que sea liberado de dolor innecesario o estrés durante el proceso de faena. Por lo tanto, la única forma humana de matar a los perros sería mediante eutanasia (inyección letal). Todos los métodos de sacrificio actualmente practicados por carniceros, granjeros y comerciantes excluyen la eutanasia, de modo que todos infringen esta ley, como también la Ley de Control Sanitario de Productos Pecuarios, Artículo 7, Sección 1, Cláusula 2. De acuerdo con esta Ley, el sacrificio de animales para consumo sólo está permitido para aquellos clasificados como “ganado” en la Ley de Control Sanitario de Productos Pecuarios, y los perros no figuran allí. La exhibición y venta de la canal de perros en mercados tradicionales al aire libre viola la Ley de Higiene Alimentaria, Artículo 4, 5. También viola las leyes que prohíben la venta de alimentos nocivos por contaminación, tal como la generada por la matanza operada en condiciones insalubres e ilegales, prohibiendo así mismo la exhibición de la canal del perro. Un ejemplo, los esqueletos se hallan habitualmente contaminados por microorganismos causantes de enfermedades e intoxicaciones a humanos, capaces de conducir a complicaciones en la salud humana potencialmente mortales. También existen leyes que prohíben la venta de carne de animales enfermos, pero, dado que no hay control sanitario ni de calidad, como tampoco supervisión formal de la faena dentro del comercio de carne de perro, es altamente probable que también se violen estas reglamentaciones cotidianamente. La sopa de huesos de perro de procedencia desconocida que se vende en los restaurantes implica una violación a la ley de Higiene Alimentaria, Artículo 44, Sección 1, Cláusula 1, que ordena que no pueda transportarse, almacenar, exhibir, vender o emplear para la manufactura de alimentos de consumo humano ningún producto de ganadería que no haya sido inspeccionado. Por favor, consulte la información legal sobre consumo de carne de perro en Corea del Sur publicado por KARA (Defensores de los Derechos de los Animales de Corea): http://koreandogs.org/kara-publishes-legal-information-booklet-ending-dog-meat-consumption/ Pensamos que cuanto aquí pedimos hace al espíritu y a los objetivos de la hermandad entre ciudades, que procura establecer relaciones fructíferas entre ellas en áreas tales como el turismo, comercio, intercambio cultural y salud pública. La cobertura internacional que ha recibido el brutal negocio de carne de perro y gato en Corea del Sur ha manchado a Seúl y a la imagen toda de Corea del Sur. No permita que eso mismo empañe también la relación con la Ciudad Amiga. El momento de acabar con esta tragedia es ahora. Se solicita el favor de su respuesta.
Petition to Dick Lynch
Tell Popeyes Chicken: End the Cruelty Now
Popeyes has been cooking up something terrifying. Though Popeyes claims the chickens they source are subjected to “ethical, humane treatment,” the truth is much scarier...and it all starts on a factory farm. Chickens raised for meat make up 95% of farmed animals in America—and because of cruel farming practices, they suffer more, too. The vast majority of factory farmed chickens spend their entire lives with no access to the outdoors, crowded by the thousands in dimly-lit sheds. The birds have no access to natural light and little room to roam—in fact, each chicken generally spends her life in a space roughly the size of a sheet of paper. But here’s the really frightening part: factory farming has turned the modern chicken into a genetic monster who grows so big, so fast, she often struggles to stand under her own massive weight—a real-life Frankenchicken. She’s a prisoner of her own body, often unable to move freely and vulnerable to heart, lung, and leg problems. This is a bird bred to suffer. There are billions of Frankenchickens just like her—and Popeyes is supporting the cruel practices that bring them to life. You can stop this. It’s time for Popeyes to end the horror show by committing to a better breed of bird, one whose genetics do not inherently cause suffering, and better living conditions that let chickens be chickens. Sign the petition to tell Popeyes you don’t support the Frankenchicken. Other restaurants like Subway, Burger King, Moe's Southwest Grill, Panera, Chipotle, Qdoba, Jack in the Box, and more have already committed to improving the lives of chickens. Join Compassion in World Farming in demanding that Popeyes raise the bar for chickens—sign this petition today and help spread the word by sharing it with friends and family. Because chickens deserve better than a factory farm.
Petition to Chief minister of Nagaland, Indian Ambassador to the United States
End the Horrific Dog and Cat Meat Trade of Nagaland
Shocking new images have emerged of the cruel dog meat trade in Nagaland, India, where terrified stray dogs and stolen family pets are tied up, stuffed into sacks so they cannot move and transported -- sometimes tied to the roof of a car -- to restaurants where brutal slaughter awaits. The appalling new photos were taken by photographer and dog lover Surabhi Jaiswar, who documented the cruelty in the hope that "animal activists take action." And now, it is up to us to speak out against the horror and work to save more dogs from torture and death. Dog and cat meat are outlawed in India; however, the slaughter notoriously continues in this region. In 2016, Humane Society International investigated the "Nagaland nightmare" and found the same extreme brutality. Some smugglers even stitched the dogs' mouths shut to muffle the animals during illegal transport. The abuse must not go on. Sign now to urge the Chief Minister of Nagaland to enforce the dog and cat meat ban at once and file criminal charges against anyone caught engaging in this horrific trade.

Outlaw hog vs. dog hunting/fighting in the wild
Goal: To outlaw the cruel and inhumane practice of using dogs to hunt wild boar in Florida, as well as in the 31 others states it's currently legal or have no laws on the books. Florida (as well as other states) has a wild boar problem. Hogs are numerous, omnivorous and have no natural predators, making them one of the largest nuisance pests in the state. There are many humane options for dealing with the pigs, which do not need to involve brutally killing the pigs or putting domesticated dogs in harm’s way. However, despite the existence of alternatives, Florida and other states have exempted the use of "bait-dogs" in boar hunting. This practice is incredibly dangerous and very inhumane for the dogs and boars involved. Each of the 32 states that allow this practice laws differ, but Florida animal cruelty statute states: FLORIDA ANIMALS: CRUELTY; SALES; ANIMAL ENTERPRISE PROTECTION: http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0800-0899/0828/Sections/0828.122.html 828.122 Fighting or baiting animals; offenses; penalties.—(1) This act may be cited as “The Animal Fighting Act.”(2) As used in this section, the term:(a) “Animal fighting” means fighting between roosters or other birds or between dogs, bears, or other animals.(b) “Baiting” means to attack with violence, to provoke, or to harass an animal with one or more animals for the purpose of training an animal for, or to cause an animal to engage in, fights with or among other animals. In addition, “baiting” means the use of live animals in the training of racing greyhounds.(c) “Person” means every natural person, firm, copartnership, association, or corporation.(3) Any person who knowingly commits any of the following acts commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084:Baiting, breeding, training, transporting, selling, owning, possessing, or using any wild or domestic animal for the purpose of animal fighting or baiting; (9) This section shall not apply to:.....(e) Any person using dogs to hunt wild hogs or to retrieve domestic hogs pursuant to customary hunting or agricultural practices." The exception (e) makes NO logical sense, because dogs are trained to "hunt" by chasing, cornering, attacking and fighting. So, why is it illegal to cause a dog to fight another dog, or a pig in an enclosure, but it is legal to use dogs to chase and viciously attack pigs while being trained and in the wild? Boar hunting with dogs is exactly what it sounds like: dogs trained to track and attack. They are taken out into the country, or wherever wild hogs are plentiful, and set loose to sniff out hogs. Once a hog is found the dogs will chase it down, corner, bay and attack it, usually leaving it badly injured, but normally still alive. Hunters (when they catch up) will kill the pig, usually by "sticking," which is a prolonged death vs. the use of a proper gun. Wild hogs are incredibly difficult to kill and will put up a fight until the end. Many dogs involved are wounded by tusks, bitten, trampled and sometimes killed. This is basically animal fighting, in the wild. Putting dogs in such a dangerous situation is inhumane and should not be legal. PETITION LETTER: Wild boars are a major problem in Florida and in other states. The species has no natural predators, is omnivorous and repopulates very quickly: it is because of these traits that wild boars are a force hard to reckon with. There are many control methods used, some of them very inhumane. Currently it is legal for dogs to be used in wild hog hunting. This practice is extremely dangerous for the dogs involved and leads to inappropriate practices elsewhere. Dogs involved in hunting are likely to be seriously injured by the hogs. Dogs get trampled, bitten, pierced by tusks and may be infected with diseases that pigs carry. The hogs are frightened, outnumbered and suffer a painful death. I urge you to propose a ban on hunting wild pigs with dogs in order to put a stop to these inappropriate behaviors. Please consider other methods of wild pig population control, such as designating land for hogs to be displaced to, and controlling breeding of the species. Allowing dogs to hunt them is inhumane and unnecessary. Sincerely, [Your Name Here]

Stop the Starvation of Community Cats of Disneyland Area/ Anaheim!
Anaheim Law said DISNEYLAND & Residents Must STARVE their BELOVED Stray CATS! The Ban was finally legally dropped but citizens are still being told by enforcement officers to starve cats! UPDATE: The city of Anaheim finally changed the law to make it LEGAL again now to feed stray cats - but the city's officers are still telling residents they must stop feeding hungry kitties!!! We are telling the city to train their officers to allow feeding of innocent homeless and abandoned kitties! It does no good to drop the feeding ban if people are still being told to stop feeding!! MORE INFORMATION: 2 and a half years ago, the City of Anaheim enacted a new code that made it illegal for residents to feed feral cats. Rather than spending their resources on humane spay/neuter programs, the city began harassing and threatening caretakers for simply feeding community cats; innocent creatures that depend on devoted feeders for their very lives. Not only does this hurt cats, it turns warmhearted people into criminals. Anaheim is home to Disneyland, which has its own famous feral cat community. Anaheim Fix Project fought hard to get the law changed - and finally the ban was dropped. But some officers are still telling people to stop feeding and Anaheim Fix Project is trying to get the city to retrain their officers - and the group is also spay/neutering (TNR) and rescuing as many cats and kittens as possible! The rescue group, Anaheim Fix Project is providing spay/neuter, vet care, rescue, and providing food for hundreds of homeless and abandoned stray cats and kittens of Anaheim and surrounding Orange County cities, but the group is very small and underfunded. They are overstretched, overwhelmed and unable to keep up. They don’t have the resources or people to save all the kitties in need! For more information please visit the Facebook page for Anaheim Fix Project / OC Communitry Cats: https://www.facebook.com/AnaheimFullertonTNR To Make a Donation: https://www.gofundme.com/HelpSave-Suffering-Kittens They are in dire need of donations to help feed the 500 plus kitties who depend on them for food and care everyday! Thank you for any help at all! No amount is too small! Let us know if you live in Orange County, California and would like to VOLUNTEER with Anaheim Fix Project! Come Help the Kitties! Thank you for caring! Anaheim Fix Project: OC Community Cats / Caring Friends Cat Rescue
