Say NO to DOG SEXUAL ABUSE. It's NEVER ok to fondle private parts of dogs or any animal.

I have an adorable Maltese Terrier named Snowy, he is faithful, barks hello after a trip down the driveway whenever I collect mail, loves playing and is such an innocent creature. The best thing I love about my Maltese Terrier is the way he walks to his toy basket and brings his chosen toy in his mouth, lays it at my feet with his tail wagging, hoping for me to play with him. His big brown eyes always melts my heart with love and he usually gets his play wish. Such purity, such adorable innocence.  Unfortunately, I'm shocked that not all people value the innocence of 'Man's Best Friend'. Sadly, there's a 'Child friendly' movie called "Show Dogs", I've discovered that this movie shows a police dog private parts being 'fondled' by his owner to prepare him for the judge of the dog show to 'fondle' his privates.  … SHOCKING, isn't it? I wouldn't let anyone fondle my dog's private parts let alone a stranger!! Since when is it ok to deliver messages in a movie form that sexually harassing a dog is ok? What's even worse is this movie is targeting children, teaching them subliminal message that sexually harassing animals is no big deal.  I'm creating this petition because I think from the depths of my heart that our beautiful, innocent dogs or any animals must never experience such behaviour of this kind and that we as a human race must never encourage harassing behaviour just for 'entertainment' sake. I don't want my child to watch this movie because I don't want her getting any 'ideas'. I don't want animal cruelty in any shape or form being seen as 'fantastic', or '... keeping it together under pressure', as some articles say. DOGS MUST NEVER BE PUT UNDER SUCH PRESSURE!! This is the last thing we need in our planet. If you feel the same way as I do, and want to put a stop to this movie being released in July 2018 here in Australia. I encourage you to share this to as many people you think share our mindset and together we can protect our precious pets.  I'm also hoping that animal rights activists will stand with me and for the sake of our pets, not allow this movie to be aired in their cities and nations. Sexually harassing animals must never be taken lightly and if our pets could talk, I'm confident they'd agree with us … and probably bite the hand of their harasser.

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 need 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.
