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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the link as soon as I can. I’m warning you that the video is extremely graphic and upsetting.

Alleged UPS Worker Sold Suffering Injured Baby Rabbit for $10. To Be Fed Alive To Snakes
Does United Parcel Service take kindly to their employees inhumanely treating household pets? Makayla Dye rabbit/animal breeder appears to be representing UPS on Facebook. Dye posted a baby rabbit for sale as a "live feeder" in a Facebook group to reptile owners while stating the baby rabbit had a leg injury for weeks and was not getting better. It appears the helpless baby rabbit was neglected and not taken to a Veterinarian causing weeks of suffering then sold for $10.00 as live snake food. To further the cruelty of an untreated leg injury, Dye deliberately sought out a snake owner to use the baby rabbit as live food causing even more suffering that would result in terror and an excruciating death. Failure to provide animals with medical attention causing unnecessary or unjustifiable suffering in WA State is Animal cruelty in the second degree. Rabbit rescues and pet owners offered to purchase the baby at a higher price and would have given him proper medical care and the life he deserves; Dye refused the offers. We the petitioners request David Abney, President of UPS investigate if Makayla Dye is in fact an employee of UPS and if so; take responsibility and ask the proper authorities to investigate the whereabouts and condition of this injured baby rabbit and request the animal cruelty laws in Washington State be upheld. We further request the Humane Society, SPCA Cowlitz Animal Control uphold WA State animal cruelty laws and investigate the whereabouts and condition of this injured baby rabbit, lack of Veterinary care given and provide a wellness check on all animals in care of breeder Makayla L Dye, Castle Rock, WA 98611 as well as check on any licensing required to sell animals for profit.

Petition to Johnson & Johnson
Stop cutting down trees for Palm Oil
Hello owner of Johnson and Johnson. My name is Dylan and I am 6 years old, and my mummy is helping me write this. It makes me sad that humans are cutting down trees and hurting orangutans to get palm oil. Mummy said that you put palm oil in your products. Please can you stop paying people to chop down trees for palm oil. When Mummy showed me Iceland’s orangutan cartoon and I got upset because there were humans in the forest cutting it down. I told mummy that we should bring all the orangutans here to save them but she said we can’t because they need their own home. So I’m writing this letter instead. If Johnson and Johnson keep using unsustainable Palm Oil then we will keep losing orangutans. It's really sad because when humans cut down trees to get palm oil they are knocking down the orangutans’ houses and sometimes the orangutans die. If someone came and knocked my house down with me inside and all my family I would be sad and I'd get hurt and that's not fair. You would be cross if someone knocked your house down too. When I grow up I want to go see orangutans but if you keep getting people to knock down trees there won't be any orangutans left. I hope you stop before Christmas so the orangutans have a great Christmas. Thank you for reading my letter. Dylan (Please sign)
Petition to Animal welfare board of India
Ban on use of horses/donkeys/mules as rides to pilgrimages in India.
"The horse was forced to stand on his legs moments after it fell down. Its legs were shaking as it did. It was being forced by its owner to carry a man up the hill. The owner took no notice of a fractured ankle of the horse. When asked by me about the health clearance certificate of the animal the owner fled with the saddle leaving his horse again crashing to the ground in pain. People kept walking by........", I cried as I read somewhere. The man who shared this was on his way to Vaishno Devi Temple in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. But such incidents happen everywhere in India during the holy Yatras. This petition is a tribute to all the animals who have died or are dying carrying people up and down the holy mountains of India. It puts humanity to shame when pilgrims pass by injured, and in worse cases, dying horses/mules, that are used as mere mediums for carrying them up and down the hills, unnoticed. Most of these animals are employed illegally by their owners. There is a policy in India called 'Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act' which is being violated openly everywhere, all the time. The protectors of the law often become aides in the abusive use of animals in India. There is no check on the health of the animal before taking it on a 10-20 km ride uphill/downhill with loads ranging from 40 to 120 kg on their backs. The owners overexploit the animals which can often be seen limping with injuries to their ankles and knees. Wounds due to friction from the belts around the buttocks of these animals can't go unnoticed since they are often bleeding red. Ask yourself, is it OK to arrive at a temple having given such pain to an animal? It's your wish to go to meet your high dwelling deity, why should an animal be troubled immensely for that? Ask yourself, is it not a sin to ride to a holy place on the back of a sick and injured animal? Stop the cruel treatment of animals and ask for other means of transportation. When you say no to atrocious use of animals new alternatives will be created. Next time when you are going on a pilgrimage ask yourself, would you risk the life of an innocent animal to visit your holy place? If your conscience tells you it's wrong (I am sure it does) rise up for these innocent and harmless beings who can't speak up for themselves. Let's come together as a loud voice in support of providing a better life to these fellow earthlings who have been tortured for our comfort for centuries. Through this petition, we ask the Government of India to look into this matter seriously and put a complete ban on the use of animals as means of carrying people to holy places. This is the only possible way for the redemption of these creatures.
Petition to GVK, CIDCO
Animals are dying at Navi Mumbai International Airport Site! Appeal CIDCO to build Shelter
If you haven't heard already, construction of Navi Mumbai International Airport has begun at Panvel. This land, used to be collection of villages, which have now been abandoned and flattened for the construction. The villagers left tonnes of rubble and 100s animals behind. These animals, once dependent on the villagers for food and water, are now walking miles to find nothing but mud, rocks and dust. The site preparation involves breaking down hillocks and boulders and levelling the ground. Furthermore, the construction equipment, destruction of water bodies and constant movement of rocks and earth have injured many animals. A group of Activists - NMIA Rescuers have been feeding the animals. Every day, they make their way to the site, walk through barren land and pick up stray dogs and cats who are often famished or injured. They feed these animals each and everyday. They also carry water to fill up the water bowls placed at the site. The total expenses for feeding and transport exceeds Rs 3000 per day! We no longer have the funds left to feed them. It is the responsibility of the Government Body and the Contractors of this project to rehabilitate these animals. We are appealing CIDCO to build a Shelter for the animals affected by this project. Please sign this petition to save the animals at the NMIA site from starvation and death! To volunteer or donate for the feeding and rescue mission please contact Pooja Teli at 7208878300

STRAY DOGS ON MADEIRA
Hi, I have decided that its time to try and get as much support as possible for the poor Stray Dogs roaming the streets of Madeira Island, These animals are abused and betrayed badly by their owners who, when they decide to go on holiday, or they have just had enough of them, will callously throw them out onto the street to fend for themselves. People dump tiny puppies in the mountains or their garbage with no hope of survival, Sadly, there are no enforced animal cruelty laws in Portugal. Please sign this petition to help stop this very sad situation and bring about positive change for these helpless animals. There needs to be a free national spaying and neutering policy implemented when an owner first takes a dog from a kennel and for owner of dogs that haven't had this done. Presently, people have to pay for this and they will not do it, therefore there are endless strays. and there needs to be micro-chipping so dogs can be identified, Also make it illegal to chain dogs up.! :When people visit Madeira they are very saddened by what they see and it is such a beautiful island!

Protect chicks from egg-hatching projects in schools
Every year, young hatchlings are distributed across the country to paying schools and educational facilities, who have no idea what happens to the chicks when they’re too old to be handled in the classroom.These schools say that it is educational for children to watch the chicks be born and play with the chicks, when most are in fact very young (sometimes 2-3yr olds) and often end up mishandling the chicks. Because teachers and children aren’t experts in caring for unborn/baby chicks, these chicks often end up very sick or dying before birth. Sometimes their organs stick to the sides of shells because their eggs weren’t properly rotated, which is what mother hens do. Or they hatch at the weekend with no-one around to care for them.The rehoming of these chicks once they are no longer ‘cute’ and have grown out of their small incubators is difficult too. Hens are easier to rehome as they produce eggs, but males are seen as useless and will either be killed or sold to the meat industry. I volunteer on a farm and have seen firsthand the difficulties with rehoming. We have had poultry thrown over fences and abandoned in desperation. My sister works in a nursery and year after year has had to rehome the chickens and makes it her mission to do so. Despite warning colleagues of the implications of buying hatchlings, they continue to buy into the industry and often discuss snapping the necks of the chicks to dispose of them when they feel they have no other options. These children aren’t taught that the chickens they handle could be thrown into meat grinders (alive), or that my sister has to rehome them to save their lives. These programmes teach children the wrong lesson - that animals are disposable. My goal is to prevent schools and facilities from purchasing chicks, when they have no idea how to care for them. That’s why I’m calling for the government to write to schools, to warn on the dangers of running hatching programs and to advise schools not to run them unless they can care for these chicks as they age. I hope they will recommend a better and more humane solution to teach children about animals than having hatching projects. *DISCLAIMER* the image of used for this petition is not my own. I have just used it to emphasise what happens to the chicks in the meat industry. It is a very REAL picture however. Please sign and share my petition - let’s teach children to value animal life!

Stop the ill treatment of donkeys!
Santorini is a beautiful island however this needs to STOP. Using donkeys to carry people & their luggage?? The people of santorini need to make a living some other way because THIS AIN’T IT! And anyone paying for this service is just as bad and you are LAZY. They can’t speak out, they don’t have a choice. The donkeys need to be freed from the ill-treatment just for people’s own beneficial use.
