ALL Old Live Animal Export Ships MUST be banned from Australia
(Pictured: the Bader III, built 1978, and the Maysora, built 1989) Hundreds of thousands of animals have DIED hideous, wretched deaths on old livestock ships sailing from Australia. The Government, and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority are proposing a ban on ships over 20 years old. The proposal does not go far enough. It's suggesting the ban may only apply to shipments in Australia's winter months. This means ships will sail to searing temperatures in the Middle East. THAT IS NOT ENOUGH. If these ships are substandard, and we know they are, then there must be a complete ban. Australian animals have died a slow sickening death. Many have died from heat exhaustion, cooking from the inside. Animals die of pneumonia, salmonella, injury and trauma on long, multi-port voyages of up to SIX WEEKS. Their suffering is immeasurable, horrendous, and indefensible. http://splash247.com/australia-looks-banning-elderly-livestock-carriers/https://thewest.com.au/business/agriculture/old-live-animal-export-ships-face-ban-ng-b88575313z
Petition to The Speaker and Members of Legislative Assembly of Parliament of Western Australia, Alannah MacTiernan, Mark McGowan
Plead to WA Government to review the Animal Welfare Act and enforce harsher penalties.
To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled. We, the undersigned, say that in light of the tragic and horrific event on Wednesday 17th May 2017, in which Luna a beloved family labrador was fatally stabbed by a 37-year-old man at Polyantha Reserve in Apple Blossom Drive, Mirrabooka and animal welfare cases that have been failed by the system, the WA Animal Welfare Act 2002 does not provide animals with adequate protection, neither does it recognise the inhumane killing of an animal is a serious offence and the need to incorporate harsher penalties and punishments. This is in particular reference to Part 3 of the Act: Offences Against Animals (under clause 19: 1 and 2) which does not include the inhumane killing of an animal as a serious offence, nor does it enforce harsher punishments and penalties to suit. Currently Luna's offender is on bail for not only killing an animal, but carrying a dangerous weapon and in line with the current law of the Animal Welfare Act 2002, if convicted is likely to face no more than a monetary fine and if deemed appropriate up to 5 years (maximum) in prison. Current penalties do not match the severity of these crimes and are not considered tough enough to deter animal cruelty and in particular, the inhumane killing of an animal. Now we ask the Legislative Assembly to review the WA Animal Welfare Act 2002 and to enforce harsher penalties and punishments. Temporary animal bans, community service and monetary fines are simply too lenient. Penalties such as lengthy prison time needs to be enforced by the government, as well as permanent animal bans. For the people signing the petition this is the first step in making our voice heard and where animals are silent, it is hoped that justice can be served. In the memory of Luna and the many other animals who have suffered and tragically lost their lives. Thank you for your support!
Petition to Victorian State Government, Melbourne City Council, Melbourne Central Shopping Centre
Shut down @pets Melbourne central
Everybody knows of the renowned @pets located within Melbourne central shopping centre. There have been numerous complaints and petitions trying to have this horrible shop shut down. It seems as though profits are worth more than the innocent little lives that suffer day by day, including the mothers of these poor beings who are most likely locked away in tiny little cages on an over crowded breeding mill. Animals who have been bred for the purpose of profit tend to burnout within 5 years and are then killed. It is a well known fact that there are overpopulated shelters throughout Melbourne who euthanise thousands of healthy animals a year, if this sick torture chamber of a store is shut down then it gives the homeless animals a stronger chance at life. I am willing to do my research and organise homes for the animals on the closure of the store. I find this store and it's owners absolutely vile, these are innocent living beings who are suffering at the hands of humans all for a profit. No amount of money is worth what these sick and depressed animals are suffering, as human beings we have the power to make a change. Animals do not have a voice but I will continue to fight for them and be their voice until somebody listens. I urge you to look within your heart and show some compassion and mercy on the fellow loving beings who are suffering for a dollar.

Our tiny Jack Russell was mutilated and dumped - justice for Honey
Honey, mum’s sweet 14 yr old Jack Russell and much-loved member of the family, was brutally tortured. Mutilated and her body tossed away without a thought. We found her lifeless corpse in a neighbour’s yard. Honey may have been little in size, but had a big heart and glowing personality. Now our sweet furry mate is gone. Another pet innocently taken by the hands of man. We've heard of other incidents of torturous animal abuse in the area -- many going unpunished. We're terrified that Honey's death could be swept under the carpet. I am fed up of reading about poor pets being brutally killed, their abusers getting away free. When is Enough is enough Australia. Our politicians need to harden up on punishments for animal welfare rights. Please help me demand justice for Honey and a crackdown on animal cruelty laws in NSW. Rip little honey girl xx

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 69 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.

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.
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.
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 Council as Feral Cats have been 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 owners of Pet Cats are protected.
