Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, Donald J. Trump
Pass the Preventing Animal Cruelty (PACT) Act
Ask Congress to pass the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, the first-ever general federal Animal Cruelty law in history. This is a bill with broad bipartisan support. Even prior to swearing in the new members of Congress, this bill had 36 Co-Sponsors in the Senate and 283 Co-Sponsors in the House. It was previously blocked from a vote by a single congressman. Now that the House of Representatives has changed, this bill needs to be brought to the floor of Congress for a vote. We should not go another day without protecting the animals from cruelty, bestiality, and torture. Why is this law important? This law will allow the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies to crack down on malicious cruelty and the sexual exploitation of innocent animals. The legislation will build on the federal “animal crush” video law that was enacted in 2010, which banned the creation, sale, and distribution of obscene videos that show animals being crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or subjected to other forms of heinous cruelty. The PACT Act will prohibit those same extreme acts of animal cruelty when they occur in interstate or foreign commerce, regardless of whether a video is produced. The PACT Act will also enable the federal government to prosecute malicious acts of animal cruelty on federal property such as military bases, federal prisons, airports, and national parks. Additionally, it will enable federal authorities to crack down on the practice of bestiality which often involves a subculture where animals are moved across state lines and where information is exchanged on websites that enable the exploitation to happen. Who supports this bill? This legislation is endorsed by more than 200 law enforcement agencies across the country. This bill was previously passed in the Senate by a UNANIMOUS bipartisan vote. This bill had 283 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and 36 Co-Sponsors in the Senate even prior to the swearing in of the current members of congress. History In December 2017 the Senate UNANIMOUSLY passed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, S. 654. This bipartisan legislation protecting animals against cruelty and torture was led in the U.S. Senate by Senators Pat Toomey, R-Pa, Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and was joined by 34 cosponsors. Despite the overwhelming bipartisan support we still do not have this important federal law. The bill was blocked by a single member of Congress despite the valiant efforts of Reps. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and Ted Deutch, D-Fla. to help pass this bill (H.R. 1494). Reps. Lamar Smith and Ted Deutch previously secured an unbelievable 283 cosponsors and broad bipartisan support by ⅔ of Congress. Now, with the change of leadership in Congress, there is a new and fresh opportunity for congress to pass this important law with vast bipartisan support. Why should we sign this now? There is a new and fresh opportunity for congress to pass the overwhelmingly bipartisan Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act that was previously blocked by a single member of congress. The shift of power in Congress has removed this one congressman as an obstacle. Now this bill has a real opportunity to pass if the public demands that Congress makes it a legislative priority, and brings it to a vote. Passage will bring the first federal animal cruelty bill that protects against bestiality, animal cruelty, and animal torture. Your signature will help demonstrate the public outcry to make this a legislative priority. The animals cannot speak for themselves. Please consider being the voice for the voiceless and sign the petition. Your support will speak volumes to lawmakers! "Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have." ~Margaret Mead What you can you do to help RIGHT NOW in addition to signing the petition? (IMPORTANT) (Total Time: 5-7 minutes) 1.

Del Taco: Adopt the Better Chicken Commitment
As a resident of Southern California, Del Taco is a staple food group (period). And adding its mouthwatering Beyond Meat items has only made its menu even more irresistible (seriously, those Beyond Avocado Tacos though). Not only do I get to enjoy a delicious plant-based meal, I can feel good about supporting Del Taco’s steps towards a more sustainable future. So you might be wondering why I’m starting this petition. Well, consumers across the globe are demanding more transparency about where their food comes from — especially with regard to animal welfare. And while Del Taco has introduced great plant-based options to its menu, it’s falling way behind the industry when it comes to how the animals in its supply chain are treated. Currently, chickens raised for Del Taco’s supply chain live a life of pure torture. They are bred to grow at an alarmingly unnatural rate, which causes leg deformities, organ failure, and heart attacks in these baby birds. Each flock, which consists of tens of thousands of birds, are kept in dirty, windowless sheds where they are forced to live in their own waste with ammonia levels so concentrated that many suffer from chemical burns. When these birds are brought to slaughter, they are violently shackled upside down. Their throats are then slit, often while they’re still conscious. This animal cruelty is not what you’d expect from a restaurant chain that prides itself on food quality and has the slogan “Fresh As Del”, but this is the sad, disappointing reality. It doesn’t have to be this way though. Over 150 companies in the United States have adopted the Better Chicken Commitment, a comprehensive set of welfare reforms that address the worst abuses suffered by chickens on today’s farms. Chipotle, Qdoba, Moe’s, Burger King, Subway, Starbucks, Dunkin Brands, and many more have stepped up and put an end to the most egregious of practices. No matter your eating preference, we can all agree that this horrific abuse is not acceptable. And if all of these other companies can take action to end this extreme cruelty, why can’t Del Taco? I hope you will join me in urging Del Taco to keep moving in the right direction for its customers, the animals in its supply chain, and the planet -- and adopt the Better Chicken Commitment.

Save this baby elephant from daily torture and abuse.
Yesterday I encountered the most shocking image of a baby elephant named Gluay Horn who is being systematically abused and tortured at a facility called the Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo at this address 10280, 555 Thanon Thai Ban, Pak Nam, Amphoe Mueang Samut Prakan, Chang Wat Samut Prakan 10270, Thailand. The Thai government needs to create and enforce laws to protect these suffering animals. Until then, people of good heart and sense need to boycott any facility that so blatantly and cruelly mistreats animals --and any country that turns a blind eye to it, day after day. With great respect we ask that the Thai Royal family and government intervene to save this one animal -- and pass legislation to offer rights and protections to all others. It is within your power to make the world we all live in a more compassionate and hospitable place for all God's creatures. And to set an example for other nations to follow. Thank you.
Petition to Kim Reynolds, U.S. Senate
The Mollie & Maggie Movement
On the evening of November 1, 2019, our beautiful German Shepherd dogs were killed by a heartless human being in Hopkinton IA. We let them out, they ran off and we could not find them anywhere. We came to find out the horrific fate of our two girls - Mollie & Maggie were both shot in the head by a cruel human being. The reason we are bringing this to people's attention, is because the heartless human that did this cannot go to jail. Under Iowa law, 351.26. Right and duty to kill untagged dog - It shall be lawful for any person, and the duty of all peace officers within their respective jurisdictions unless such jurisdiction shall have otherwise provided for the seizure and impoundment of dogs, to kill any dog for which a rabies vaccination tag is required, when the dog is not wearing a collar with rabies vaccination tag attached. Weeks before our innocent dogs were murdered, Mollie had her rabies tags on. Maggie wasn't even 6 months old!! Because they didn't have them on at the time of their death, this sick human gets to walk away with no charges of animal cruelty. To give you all a little insight of how sick and cruel he is, he would not admit he killed them. "It is highly doubtful you will see them again." "If I produce the dogs, will this be the end of it? You wont come back and sue me?" "You better keep that black dog locked up or she's next." These aren't even half of the gut wrenching remarks he made to us. He knew they were our dogs and still decided to do this. We believe he called them over, held them by the collar, then shot them in the head. Mollie and Maggie would never hurt a fly. There were no livestock where he killed them. His excuse: he was bow hunting(Illegally by the way) and they were bothering him. There will be the arguments that we should have been more responsible. We were trying our best. We have been saving up for an underground fence - We even bought a wireless fence, which they would walk right through. Each day we would lock them up because we knew they needed to stay home. Our dogs ran off being dogs. They would play in the river and run throughout the corn. This time they went too far, but this does certainly not justify his actions as they were not doing anything wrong to any livestock or property. Please help us bring attention to this tragedy in hopes that we can better the animal cruelty laws in Iowa. They both had bright orange collars on, along with their name tags clearly showing they had a home, but according to Iowa law this was justified. Our girls did not deserve what happened to them. No animal deserves this! We need to stand up for our four legged friends - they don't have a voice. We are calling all animal lovers. Please sign in hopes that Governor Reynolds sees this and that we can change Iowa's laws for the better. A slap on the wrist or getting away with nothing will not change things for the better and sick human beings like this will keep doing this to innocent animals. Like I stated above, no animal deserves this!

Abolish All "BABY HORSE" Two Year Old Tennessee Walking Horse Classes (“Big Lick”)
The Tennessee Walking Horse is the ONLY equine breed in The World which shows TWO YEAR OLDS wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES with CHAINS hitting the sensitive skin above the horse's front hooves. The "BABY HORSES” are put into "TRAINING" often as early as 15-16 months old. They are "STARTED" with a "SMALL" foot/package which-h is built up to the larger size platform shoes. They are "SORED" to see if they can "WALK" through the pain, and ‘Step High’ to be a Tennessee Walking Show Horse. This shocking (DoDo) video - "Here's What Soring Does To Horses" exposes the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Animal Racket as nothing more than base and abject ANIMAL CRUELTY. https://www.facebook.com/NowThisNews/videos/1606891339327953/ Viewed over 16.4 MILLION TIMES, the viral video features “Gen’s Ice Glimmer”, an abused Tennessee Walking Show Horse. The first horse show is a Two Year Old “BABY HORSE” at the 2016 Coumbia, TN “Big Lick” Horse Show. This Video is from the “BABY HORSE” Two Year Old Class at Asheville, NC in October 2018. It has been viewed over 343,000 times. https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/172197800350091/ This Video is the “BABY HORSE” Two Year Old World Grand Champion at the 2018 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. Facebook first “covered”, and then removed the content as being “graphic and violent”. The TN Walking Horse National Celebration considers it to be wholesome family entertainment. https://youtu.be/2GfihLBW3Ao This video shows 59 DAYS of "Big Lick" Training on a “BABY HORSE” (Sep. 6 - Nov. 4) needed to "Make" a "Big Lick" Show Prospect. https://youtu.be/KOouMSaKRdE “The ‘Big Lick’ is a pain induced gait,” says Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, Horse Science Professor at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University). "It is a business based on the suffering and pain of Horses”. “Soring” is the illegal and cruel practice of using chemical and mechanical methods to create pain in a gaited show horses front feet to exaggerate their animated step." Many Tennessee Walking Horses like are started under saddle as merely “Babies” – about 15-17 months old in the Fall of the year. And now Videos like this one are starting to surface on the internet with “Big Lick” Trainers and owners bragging about the progress of the “BABY HORSES” doing the “Big Lick”? https://youtu.be/iL0T8NGvUYQ Putting “BABY HORSES” in the Show Ring wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES and CHAINS is barbaric, and an atrocity. The "Big Lick" gait should never be accepted or sanctioned by civilized society in 2019. Please voice YOUR outrage and opposition to this vile practice by SIGNING and SHARING this Petition. Your Signatures and Comments will be delivered to: · Mr. Bill Cantrell, President of the Walking Horse Trainers Association; · Ms. Janet Donlin, CEO, American Veterinary Medical Association; · Mr. Jeffrey Howard, Publisher - The Walking Horse Report/Director of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration; · Mr. Rory Williams, Executive Director (TWHBEA) Breed Registry; · Ms. Robin Broadway, President, American Horse Council.

To end this "BABY HORSE" Torture, the “WE, The People” - CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against Animal Cruelty To Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”) and Animal Wellness Action of Washington, D. C. first proposed the introduction of the “U.S. Senator Joseph D. Tydings Memorial PAST Act” to end the Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses Here is that story: https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/387172041860204/ The "TYDINGS Memorial PAST Act" was introduced in the U.

Require pet food Industries to include definitions of the ingredients in their pet foods.
Require pet food manufacturers to disclose the quality of ingredients information on pet food labels with definitions for their ingredients. Not just for example byproducts. They need to have clearer descriptions of the ingredients information. They also need to label whether the ingredients are human grade or label them as a animal feed. So many health issues for our pets causing cancer, diabetes, food allergies and other diseases and health issues. My cat just recently passed away because she became allergic to her food, chicken and turkey and other food allergies. We had to put her on a prescription diet and by then it was to late and she just stopped eating. She eventually starved herself to death. You wouldn't feed your children the ingredients in most pet foods. Ground up bones, feathers, dead carcasses that have been found in the fields after a few days, and here's the one that really is horrific and they have found traces of euthanized animals with traces of the drug they use to euthanize animals in 30% of the foods they tested. Now that's just plain sick and whomever is responsible for that should be imprisoned or worse.

Petition to Kevin Plank, ÖSV Präsident Prof. Peter Schröcksnadel, Präsident Oke Göttlich, Kevin Mansell, Roberta Myre
Please Boycott Under Armour for promoting Trophy-Hunters
Picture: Under Armour sponsored "Athlete" and Trophy Killer Lee Lakosky. Under Armour sponsors numerous Trophy-hunters like Kendall Jones, Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Cameron Hanes, and many others, to kill wild animals for sport on different continents in order to promote the sale of Under Armour Hunting Gear. Under Armour trophy hunters flaunt their numerous kills ostentatiously on "UNDER ARMOUR HUNT" social media pages as well as their personal websites. To Kevin Plank, Founder and CEO of Under Armour: "Sir, the inspired spirit of innovation that built your company is contrary to the sport hunting programs you support and sponsor. Watching individuals butcher unsuspecting wild animals for the thrill of killing, flaunting pictures of themselves with their kills on social media is something that haunts any conscientious human being. Your aim to inspire through sport is noble and innovative. Including killing sentinent beings into that aim is base, grotesque and inhumane. Please reconsider and cancel your involvement in hunting. It literally destroys the reputation of your entire company."
