END THE YULIN DOG EATING FESTIVAL IN CHINA!
STOP! The Yulin dog eating festival! Dogs are innocent animals, that deserve love, attention, care, and a family. First, dogs are stolen from owners, taken from puppy farms or taken from the streets as strays, next they are crammed into cages that are way too small for the amount of dogs inside, click this link to see: https://goo.gl/images/wnGjrN , which often twist their limbs into extremely uncomfortable positions and have to stay there for several hours. Once they finally reach their destination, then, like some sort of torture the dogs are boiled, beaten, strangled, electrocuted, burnt and skinned ALIVE! They think the dog tastes better and will be more tender if it has adrenaline! After the horrendous ordeal the visitors happily eat the dogs. Animal cruelty is not a crime in China! When a dog just bites a human, it usually gets euthanised, or, in China there was a policeman that beat a dog to death in public! Here is the link to that: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5228433/Golden-retriever-dies-beaten-policeman.html They eat dog meat because they believe that if you eat dog meat it gives the men more sexual stamina and that it will keep them cool during the summer and it will apparently ward off evil spirits. I just can’t beleive that these people could torture the animals that help with the police, help disabled people, support and love each family they have, support and love children if they have been abused and many more. If a human tortures a dog in China, nothing happens! PUT AN END TO THIS MADNESS! If you really want to see how China really treats man’s best friend, contact me on email@example.com and I will send you the link as soon as I can. I’m warning you that the video is extremely graphic and upsetting.
Petition to Theresa May MP, RSPCA, Xi Jinping, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, UK Parliament, European Parliament, National People's Congress, Elizabeth ll
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.
Petition to Theresa May MP
Reverse the government's decision to give the go ahead for a puppy farm in Hull, created with the purpose of providing beagle puppies to laboratories for animal testing!
The government have just given the go ahead for a puppy farm in Hull to supply animals to laboratories for testing. These beautiful and loving animals will never know love or compassion, just pain, suffering and neglect! It's WRONG and CRUEL!!!! But quite apart from the suffering of innocent dogs, these experiments are now proven to also delay and prevent the arrival of effective treatments and cures for human patients. MPs are now signing EDM 66, calling for a thorough science hearing to prove that such 19th century obsolete science must immediately stop, for all our sakes. EDM 66: http://edm66.forlifeonearth.org/

Petition to end the cruel treatment of elephants in India - by Save The Asian Elephants
Above: a baby elephant beaten to the ground in the "training" process of pajan. http://stae.org Young elephants are snatched from their forest homes to supply tourist attractions, temples and festivals. Capture from the wild often entails slaughtering the mothers and other herd members who attempt to protect their young. PAJAN – THE BRUTAL ‘BREAKING IN’ PROCESSThe captured calves are isolated and then forced into a pen and tied with ropes to prevent them moving. They are deprived of water, food and sleep. Terrified, they are brutally, often fatally, beaten with rods, chains or bullhooks (a rod with sharp metal hooks at the striking end) and stabbed with knives and nails. This practice – “pajan” – is designed to break their spirits and brutalise them into submission. We respectfully urge:Narendra Modi to end pajan and ensure the proper treatment of captive elephants. These magnificent creatures should either be released into the forests or kept in genuine sanctuaries. David Cameron to urgently fulfil his Government’s Manifesto commitment to “support the Indian Government in its efforts to protect the Asian elephant”. The Association of British Travel Agents to press its members to remove elephant attractions from their itinerary in India and the rest of Asia. Only visits to genuine sanctuaries and wildlife reserves where tourists observe elephants at a respectful distance (and do not ride them) should be permitted. STAE asks for your signature to this petition as we need maximum visible support as we enter crucial meetings with the UK Foreign Office and the UK tourism industry.

Petition to Karmenu Vella
JUSTICE FOR PINCHO - amend EU animal welfare directive to include domestic pets
CAMPAIGN FOR MORE RIGOROUS ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS ACROSS THE EU BY AMENDING THE 1998 -COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 98/58/EC TO INCLUDE DOMESTIC PETSWhen the horrific story by Yvonne West about Pincho, her sexually abused Spanish rescue dog, broke on Facebook (May 2018) animal lovers worldwide sprang into action. Now safe with Yvonne in Suffolk, UK, after a very difficult rescue highlighted by the Rescue Group for Spanish Animals, Pincho is now receiving worldclass veterinery care funded by public donations through paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org and https://uk.gofundme.com/pincho-the-abused-dog Pincho also has his own group page where those who care follow his long road to recovery https://www.facebook.com/groups/171005326906919/?ref=bookmarksThe rescue group who undoubtedly saved this dog life and many more like him are found here https://www.facebook.com/groups/Rescuespanishanimals/?__nodlPINCHO'S STORY MUST NOT END HERE!Through him, and the Spanish rescue group (funded only by donations) trying desperately to secure the release of other dogs at the property whilst saving as many horrifically abused animals as they can, the true story of a government that fails to legislate against this abuse has emerged. A campaign is in place to help them get their laws changed https://www.change.org/p/ministro-de-justicia-reformacodigopenal-subtipo-agravado-e-inhabilitacion-especial-definitiva-para-condenados-por-delito-de-maltrato-animalSadly, this kind of abuse is not limited to Spain. Cultural and legislative differences across the EU allow the barbaric treatment of the very animals we choose to have as our companions without consequence. Strays are rounded up, caged in unsanitary conditions in pounds prior to being inhumanely destroyed, often without anaesthesia or even a vet. Dogs are thrown out of homes no longer able to afford to care for them and they are left roaming the streets, interbreeding and riddled with diseases. Unspayed bitches produce litter after litter, their puppies standing no chance of medical care, and often, the minimum chance of survival. As their self appointed guardians we have a duty of care to protect them and to ensure they are afforded their basic rights to food, water, shelter, companionship, exercise and a life free from willful or neglectful abuse. Domestic pets are not vermin to be extinguished as mere pests. They bring about companionship for the lonely, they work for us on our wool farms, they provide stability and purpose to those suffering mental health issues, they protect our properties from intruders, they are our friends. Justice for Pincho must come in the form of pets being afforded the same protection as farmed animals. Namely :-1. Freedom from hunger or thirst2. Freedom from discomfort or harm 3. Freedom from pain, injury or disease4. Freedom to express normal behaviour 5. Freedom from harm or distressKarmenu Vella, we appeal to you to initiate a debate amongst member states of the EU and to bring about an amendment to the 1998 Animal welfare directive, namely Council Directive 98/58/EC , to include all domestic pets which in turn would compel all member states to legislate to protect them all. ThankyouBeatriz Collantes - Campaign co-ordinator Corina Maas - Campaign co-ordinator Gloria Winfield - Campaign co-ordinator Gilly Smith - Campaign Marketting manager
Petition to Arklow Seabreeze Festival
End the Pig Race
I'm calling on the committee to once and for all end the cruel and frightening pig race, as in this day and age, this outdated and backward form of entertainment should be laid well and truly in the past. Pigs are highly intelligent and sentient beings, with real fears. Forcing them to race in a crowd of baying people, is absurd and beyond cruel and is not 'Entertainment'. You can see the look of fear in the pigs every year and it's time to come into the 21st century and end this now. Arklow has shown it's progressive outlook toward ending animal abuse by supporting the ban on allowing any circus that uses exotic or wild animals from performing here, the pig race is not much removed from using animals for entertainment in an outdated and sinister way. We as people should know better and not support any form of animal abuse and this is clearly cruel. Some of the public may think it's funny, but I guarantee those pigs don't think so. Surely another alternative can be sought for cheers and laughs for the public without resorting to animal cruelty? No matter what 'care and attention' the pigs get from their owners during their upbringing and on the day itself, it does not remove the fact that the pigs are forced to run among noise and on hard ground, that can only be very disorientating and fearful for them. The ISPCA is on record for not supporting these events, as is the RSPCA as is anyone with an ounce of compassion or sense. If you feel strongly, that pigs should not be raced at the Arklow Seabreeze Festival this year and from now on, please sign this petition and share it. I am sure that public opinion will end this outdated and cruel practice. If you would like to contact the Arklow Seabreeze Festival committee directly it's email@example.com or catch them on Facebook under Arklow Seabreeze Festival 2017 or Arklow Seabreeze Festival, look for the most up to date post from them and that's your queue as to which page is currently active. Leave them a message there to show how disgraceful and unnecessary this event is.. My protest event page for 2018 is under this line, please come along if your'e in the Arklow area https://www.facebook.com/events/205804450224434/ Thank you. Ciara Fitzgerald
Petition to Enniscrone Events Committee
Cancel Enniscrone Pig Race at the Black Pig Festival
On Friday the 27 of July, as entertainment part of the Black Pig Festival, the town of Enniscrone/ Inishcrone/ Inniscrone will play host to a pig race. With the current weather and travelling all the way from Belfast, this is only one of the concerns for this event. The Ballina Salmon Festival organisers have cancelled this very same event. There is no need to put these animals into a situation that causes them stress and injury purely for our own "entertainment". We're hoping that with the outrage from the public and statement of the NSPCA, this will be an added incentive for them to make the decision to cancel for the sake of the poor animals. Please CALL 087 2241881 to contact the Enniscrone Event Committee and express your concern. You can contact them anonymously, you DO NOT have to provide your name! EVERY phone call helps and hopefully they will realise that animals for entertainment is an abusive business and should not be supported! Animals used in travelling shows and menageries are often subjected to severe abuse in order to force them to provide “entertainment” at shows. These highly intelligent, sensitive animals are also stressed by the constant travel and the large, boisterous crowds. Animals used in travelling acts are almost constantly confined to tiny transport cages or trailers. They suffer from extreme temperatures and are not provided with adequate food and water. The North West SPCA Ballina has posted a statement on their Facebook Page in regards to Pig Races with the following information:…these are the Internationally agreed Five Freedoms for animal welfare and the basis for a humane attitude and respect towards defenceless animals.According to this concept, an animal’s primary welfare needs can be met by providing:• FREEDOM FROM HUNGER AND THIRST• FREEDOM FROM DISCOMFORT• FREEDOM FROM PAIN, INJURY OR DISEASE. ...• FREEDOM TO EXPRESS NORMAL BEHAVIOR. ...• FREEDOM FROM FEAR AND DISTRESS We hope that in the future the exploitation of defenceless animals for 'a bit of fun' will be a NON EVENT! Thank you to those who care, your voice does count!
Petition to Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare
Stop Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare killing animals for their cafe
"My own view, and that of every decent minded person, is that no animal should be caused to suffer at all for any reason." Miss M Raymonde-Hawkins, MBE, founder of Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare. Currently the Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare, an animal sanctuary in Ringmer, East Sussex, serves meat, dairy, egg and fish in its café. Since Raystede is also an educational centre, inviting families and school parties to learn from them how to be compassionate towards animals, serving animal products in their café is sending a confusing message, one which is very detrimental to the cause. Visitors look to Raystede for an example of how best to be kind to animals. If they see that Raystede condones animal farming they will not be likely to question it themselves and millions of animals will continue to be bred for the butcher's knife at the sanctuary supporters' bidding. If Raystede served only plant-based food in its café then it would send a clear and consistent message:“There is no need for animal protein in the human diet and therefore eating it is done only for pleasure. Animals suffer horrifically for the meat, fish, dairy and egg industries and since hurting animals for pleasure goes against everything Raystede stands for, it will not serve animal products in its café.” We therefore ask that those in charge of Raystede demonstrate their compassion for ALL animals by refusing to sell products of animal cruelty on its premises. Please make the cafe vegan.
