Petition to UK Prime Minister
Support The UK Parliament's Call To End The Dog Meat Trade!
We respectfully ask that the UK government take immediate action to use its influence in the countries listed below, to end the inhumane trade in dogs and cats in Asia, as per the declaration made below by an unprecedented number of MPs from all parties at the recent meeting at the House of Commons. We, the undersigned MP’s, hereby call upon the governments of Cambodia, China, Laos PDR, Indonesia, South Korea, The Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam to take action to end the production, trade in, and slaughtering of dogs and cats for the purposes of meat and by-products. In recognition of: 1. The mounting body of evidence linking the consumption of such meat to human health and disease transmission notably cholera and trichinellosis. 2. The universal acceptance that the uncontrolled movement of unvaccinated dogs is the main cause for the spread of rabies. 3. The increasing number of pet animals brutally stolen for the purpose of meat and skin production. 4. The significant impact the production of, trade in, slaughtering and consumption of dog and cat meat poses to animal welfare. 5. The increasing awareness of the suffering of fur bearing animals, including dogs and cats, whose skin and fur products are widely exported and sold. 6. The risk to the health of UK citizens visiting the region and being exposed to the trade. There can be no excuse for the intolerable suffering and cruelty these animals are facing as a result of this trade. The time has come to end it.
Petition to chinese Minister of Agriculture, Governor of Yulin GuangXi Province
End the Yulin Dog and Cat meat festival
We at the International Society for Animal Rights are dedicated to end the dog and cat meat trade in the Guangxi Province of Yulin, China. This infamous region is responsible for the highest number of dogs and cats killed Annualy for the "Yulin dog meat and lychee Festival". Support us as we work towards putting an end to this cruel "Festival" and bringing positive change for the helpless Cats and Dogs of China. Dear. Ambassador and Governor of the Peoples Republic of China; We, the people of the world have witnessed the lack of compassion and cruelty inflicted upon the helpless Cats and dogs in Yulin, Guangxi Province. We strongly and respectfully urge you, the Chinese government to end the suffering of the tens of thousands of Cats and Dogs who are being brutally killed at this festival Annually. China is a prosperous and forward moving country where tens of Millions of your own compassionate and devoted citizens have taken a stand against the dog and cat meat trade as well as Animal cruelty all together. You can win the hearts and minds of your Citizens and the citizens off the world by making a change that will move your nation further forward by establishing and passing legislation that will bring Animal protection laws into motion and making it a criminal and punishable offence to anyone who is found guilty of Cruel treatment, Confinement, Abuse, Neglect, Slaughter and any other form of Animal abuse. "All beings tremble before Violence, All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others then whom can you harm? What harm can you do?" - BUDDHA- THE YULIN FESTIVAL: The Yulin Festival, also known as the Yulin dog meat and lychee festival is a brutal occurrence that has taken place every year since 2010. The sheer brutality that takes place every July for an entire month has outraged the world with millions of people all over the world taking a stand against this cruel and evil "Festival" including 10 Million Chinese Citizens who are disgusted and appalled at the atrocities that take place in Yulin. Change is at hand as the next generation of Chinese animal lovers are viewing dogs and cats as companions, rightfully. Each year 10,000 to 50,000 Dogs and Cats are sold and brutally killed at the Yulin festival, some of the methods used to kill these innocent and helpless animals range from violent beatings over the head to being thrown alive into a pot of boiling hot water, other cruel methods that have surfaces have even seen conscious cats and dogs being burned alive with a blowtorch. The fear and helplessness felt by these innocent cats and dogs goes further as it is believed fear makes their meat taste better, this sick and sadistic belief means many dogs are bludgeoned and killed in front of other dogs to incite and trigger fear. Unfortunately, morals and compassion are not prevalent amongst dog meat traders as many have and continue to steal beloved pets from their owners to fuel the ever growing demand for dog and cat meat at this cruel and barbaric "Festival". Animal rights and protection laws are practically non-existent in China and that is one of the toughest hurdles we face as we try to end Animal cruelty in a country where there are no repercussions for harming, Abusing and killing Animals.

Petition to Rosedene Animal Rescue Centre, RSPCA
Bring Zeus back home
Zeus is a lovely mild mannered rottweiler - absolutely friendly and lovable with an excellent temperament, although if you ever raise your hand at him or he senses a repulsive negative energy exuding from you, he will get angry and show you his teeth. He has been known to bite those that are aggressive towards him. Zeus is approximately 15-months old, and has been living with Annette, his owner, since he was 7 weeks old. She has trained him as a security dog and can perform an arrangement of useful talents for Annette to make her life that much safer and easier – from turning on lights in her home and opening doors, to barking when intruders are near... he can even ride a scooter. Annette is a master practitioner of Reiki and has formed an incredibly strong bond with Zeus, she has even opened channel on YouTube to host videos of Zeus while he is receiving Annette's healing energy. They had only been apart from each other for two weeks previously, but since the rehoming of Zeus, they have now been apart for three. Zeus was rehomed by a very controlling and abusive man, who is the partner of Annette's daughter, after Annette was sectioned under the Mental Health Act a few weeks ago. She was released last Friday pertaining to legal reasons involving the CQC and has fought her hardest to reclaim Zeus from Rosedene Rescue Centre, only to be met with cheeky, ill mannered staff who have fallen in love with Zeus, contacted and sided with the abuser that put him in there, and refuse to give him back to his rightful owner. Zeus is on a specific diet that includes cooked minced beef that Annette cooks for him everyday. She would NEVER feed her dog regular wet or dry food. He also spends a lot of time inside and sleeps in the comfort of Annette's home. The conditions of the rehoming centre that Zeus has been placed in are absolutely horrendous, and can literally be classed as torture for him as he is being denied of all the creature comforts that he is used to. Annette wouldn't dare to hurt her dog like this and it is tremendously heartbreaking for her knowing that Zeus is caged, and sleeps on the cold and hard concrete floor, that she is left sleepless thinking about him. The staff, particular the owner of Rosedene Animal Rescue Centre – Kelly, have hurled abuse at Annette and even used the Mental Health Act against her. They've called her a nutjob, slammed the phone down on her, and even impersonated a police officer to unsuccessfully deter Annette from her fight. This has made the experience all the more traumatic as she is forced to use all of the available resources to reclaim Zeus. The only thing that is preventing Annette from displaying she has full ownership is Zeus' microchip, which is registered in her daughter's name. This has become a roadblock for Annette as an argument ensues as to who has power of attorney over Zeus. It's questionable whether a microchip can grant somebody the right over someone else's dog, as anyone can enter your backyard and insert a chip under the skin that traces to whomever they please. It is outrageously unfair for Annette as she has been the sole rearer of Zeus and absolutely loves him to the moon and back. All Annette wants is for Zeus to be back in his rightful home where he has all of his creature comforts and the love of his owner. It is beyond disgusting for Zeus and Annette to be put through this and has generated massive amounts of stress for the both of them, as well for her other dog Bleu who is missing Zeus dearly.

Stop Foodstuffs NZ from supplying supermarkets with eggs from caged and barn kept hens
As a child, I remember seeing trucks crammed full of chickens, wings protruding through the bars as they were so tightly packed in together. When I was young this sight made me cry more than once as I imagined the terrible lives that these hens would be living, the horrible places they had been and where they would end up. In the UK a change.org petition recently convinced Tesco, one of the biggest supermarket chains in the country, to stop selling eggs from caged and barn hens. This was an amazing achievement and something that New Zealand needs to take note of. Every time I go to a supermarket and see caged or barn eggs for sale my heart aches for the animals that have suffered for people to buy cheap, nutritionless eggs. Even the NZ government has acknowledged that this is not ok and has pledged to make battery farming hens illegal by 2022. That is still 5 years away, and even when the law passes barn-farming hens will still be allowed which isn't honestly much better. Barn-farmed hens are kept in large overcrowded sheds with seven birds kept per square metre. To reduce aggression and cannibalism, barn hens are often kept in dimmed lighting and usually have their beaks trimmed. Not nice. Foodstuffs is one of New Zealand's biggest grocery distributors and supplies the PAK'nSAVE, New World, Four Square Supermarkets, Henry's Beer Wine and Spirits, and On the Spot convenience stores. If Foodstuff stopped supplying cage and barn eggs to its stores it would drastically help to reduce the number of hens who spend their lives in cages and barns. It would also send a message to other supermarkets that this is an option that is realistic, achievable and required. Globally companies such as Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencers and Waitrose stopped selling eggs from caged hens years ago. Even Mcdonald’s UK listened to the public and responded to a petition and agreed to stop using eggs from caged and barn kept hens. Phasing out caged and barn eggs isn’t going to be easy, but if Foodstuffs can show some good faith and lead the way in doing the right thing by the animals who make them money it would be a huge step to eventually ending cages and barns in the commercial egg farming industry. Please sign this petition, share it in your networks and take the first steps towards creating happier lives for New Zealand hens.

Ban Live Export.
I started this petition because I have seen a lot of evidence involving incredibly cruel acts on livestock that leave Australian Soil. If we do not speak up and take action these horrendous acts will continue. The latest pictures I have seen involve cows being hit numerous times on the head with a sledgehammer. I have seen video footage of cows and sheep having their throat cut without being sedated before the slaughter. The look in the eyes of these animals is heartbreaking and WE need to make sure there is NO live export and animals that are to be slaughtered are sedated prior to the kill. I'm not going to post videos or pictures, because believe me they are something NO one should ever have to see. So PLEASE sign this petition, I'm not asking a lot and it will take 3-5 minutes out of your life THANK YOU.

Free our Bandit from the Scenic Rim Regional Council who want him destroyed
On 11 September 2017 the Scenic Rim Regional Council unlawfully impounded my Daughters 18 month old pure bred, registered and non regulated Red Cattle Dog pup. The Senior Ranger Kylie Addi made no effort to explain any process and her Ranger John Morrison claims he had complaints. Ranger Addy advised us "we can keep him as long as we like" The Council under leadership of Mayor, Greg Christensen has now kept him in a 1.2 m cell with no exercise for over 3 months days and refuses visitation. The ongoing torture has been ignored by Councillor Nadia Oconnell, CEO Scenic Rim Kelly Stidworth and the Local Government Minister, Mark Turner,MP. We have had ongoing issues with our neighbours trying to release the pup and attack him with a homemade shiv. I need your help in getting a spotlight on this entrenched unlawful behaviour of the Scenic Rim Regional Council. They are breaching the QLD Animal Management Act and the Animal Protection Act 2001. Please help me get Bandit back home and sign the petition.
Petition to Joy Hentschke
We the undersigned wish to see Streaky Bay Council laws on Volunteer Cat Traps change.
At the moment Volunteer Cat Trapping is welcomed by the District Council of Streaky Bay, as Feral Cats have been always been & continue to be a problem for this town. Unfortunately though, not everyone seems to be doing the right thing as suggested by Council & many Pet Cats are mysteriously disappearing. The Council laws needs to be looked at, so that Pet Cats & their owners are protected. Cat trapping needs to be undertaken ONLY by Council Officers, so that it's Feral Cats being caught & euthanised properly, NOT family pets by Community members hiring a trap to deal with a problem Pet in their area. It is far too easy to trap a neighboring cat & dispose of it, without anyone ever knowing. Many people in Streaky Bay have had Pet Cats mysteriously disappear & some people have stories about how they are fully aware of who disposed of their pet after trapping it in a Volunteer Cat trap (easily available from Council) or from many sites on the internet. We would like The District Council of Streaky Bay of SA to meet & discuss making changes to the hiring of Cat traps to members of the Community within the town. We would like the following changes to be made: Volunteer Cat Trapping to STOP within the inner residential part of Streaky Bay. That descision be made very clear to Community members & a fine put in place for ignoring the new Bi-Law. We require our local Council to protect Pet owners in the Community by making these changes.
Petition to RSPCA NSW
TELL THE RSPCA NSW THAT THIS IS CRUEL
Please help convince RSPCA NSW that keeping cats in an enclosure (at Camp Kitty, Cowra) with a dead cat in their midst is cruel. The RSPCA has known about this for over a year and the only response i can get from an inspector is that I am not qualified to judge if this is cruel. Below is what I wrote to RSPCA NSW- `I write about the cats at 230 Conimbla Road, Cowra. Attached is a photo of the dead cat whose photo I have previously sent you. It has lain in the top part of Richard's property for many days now and has been partly eaten by the other cats in the enclosure.I am unable to understand why the RSPCA has not taken action to prevent this animal cruelty taking place. It has been going on for almost four years now and numerous people have reported this to you.If humans were locked up in a prison semi starved and allowed to die without any medical help and the body allowed to remain in the prison yard without removal then there would be a world wide outcry. Why do we allow cats or any animals to be treated with such cruelty?' Please let the RSPCA NSW know that you think this is cruel as well.
