Petition to Ambassador Cui Tiankai
Ban the Sale of Cruel 'Live Animal' Keychains
On the streets of China, live animals such as turtles and lizards are sealed in plastic bags filled with colored liquid and sold as keychains and mobile phone charms. Treated as objects rather than living beings, the animals endure extreme confinement -- and usually, suffocation and death -- for a few moments of human enjoyment. One seller of live animal keychains told CNN that the pouches contain “crystallized oxygen and nutrients.” But animal advocates counter this claim, asserting that lack of sustenance and oxygen deprivation quickly kill the animals. And frankly, it doesn't take an expert to realize that an animal will not live long in a plastic bag. Some compassionate people may free the animals from their plastic tomb and keep them as pets -- but these people could face serious health risks. Turtles, for example, are known carriers of Salmonella, a dangerous bacteria. No matter how you look at it, the practice of forcing live animals into keychains is simply cruel. Unfortunately, in China there are no animal welfare laws preventing this outrageous treatment of living creatures. These animals are subjected to a slow death by suffocation in a watery grave. Sign now to send a message to Cui Tiankai, Chinese Ambassador to the United States, urging him to help put a stop to this atrocious practice. Let the government of China know that this treatment of living, sentient beings will not stand with the rest of the world.
Petition to Mark Zuckerberg
FACEBOOK, please BLOCK videos of animal cruelty!!!!
As an animal lover and animal rescuer for over 16 years, it is extremely hard to constantly see videos of animal abuse and extreme animal cruelty being shared on Facebook feeds with the faces and laughs of the disturbed perpetrators. We are animal lovers, advocates and rescuers... NOT THE POLICE and usually with no power to exert change or due punishment. These images are highly unsettling and stay on our minds, disrupting our day and our belief that there is hope for humanity. The people who commit these atrocious acts of cruelty find it easy and entertaining to have a worldwide platform with over 2 billion users that will ALLOW this to happen and do nothing. When that ability to share and feed their sick minds is cut off, it might help discourage these repulsive acts. Please, join me in asking FACEBOOK to block these videos from their feeds and hopefully even work on developing an algorithm that will, at the same time, send this content to the authorities in the country they are being streamed or filmed from so that proper action may be taken by the people in charge of this type of criminal acts. Mark Zuckerberg in 2011 - "The question isn't, 'What do we want to know about people?', It's, 'What do people want to tell about themselves?'" Please Mark, with that being said, you have the ability to MAKE THIS A BETTER WORLD for all living beings! Use all the data collection to do some GOOD too. Just because you can!!! And because "connecting people around the world" shouldn't be about disseminating horror and/or cruelty.

Ban Cruel Horse-drawn Carriage Rides in Birmingham
Birmingham should be a city of compassion instead of abuse which can be achieved by banning horse-drawn carriage rides. Horse-drawn carriages are cruel to horses by forcing them to pull oversized loads, constantly breathe in noxious exhaust fumes and suffer from serious hoof ailments due to walking on hard pavement past the point of exhaustion - no matter how hot the weather is. Horse-drawn carriages are a disgraceful exploitation that does not represent the wholesome and progressive image of Birmingham.
Petition to Ryan Zinke, Donald Trump, United States Department of the Interior
Ban Elephant "Trophies" in the US
The Trump Administration has quietly made it legal to bring tusks and other elephant parts back to the US as "trophies" from big game hunting. This policy sends the wrong message to poachers and endangers an already threatened species. From Washington Post: "The decision, announced quietly in a March 1 memorandum from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, withdrew previous rulings on trophy hunting and said the agency would allow sport hunters to receive permits for the trophy items on a 'case-by-case basis.'" However, the Trump administration/Dept. of the Interior has not commented on HOW these permits will be administered. Secretary Zinke of the Dept of the Interior, Eric Trump, and Donald Trump Jr. are also known big game hunters and this policy would be greatly beneficial to them. Secretary Zinke needs to remember that his job is to PROTECT wildlife, not to encourage hunting threatened species.
Petition to President of the United States, Ivanka Trump, Secretary of Agriculture, Mark Mulvaney, American Horse Council
Mr President, Please Publish Federal Rule Save”The Horses” From “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty
“We, The People” respectfully petition you to please instruct Secretary of Agriculture, Mr. “Sonny” Perdue, and OMB Director, Mr. Mark Mulvaney, to expeditiously review and publish the Federal Rule in the Federal Register to remove the “Pads and Chains” from Tennessee Walking Horses. This will eliminate 50 years of corruption and Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses! CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty) grassroots advocates are largely Southerners who voted for you, but more importantly, they “Speak FOR ‘The Horses Who Cannot Speak For Themselves”. These are animal welfare advocates, not animal rights” people. Many of them eat bacon, steak and hunt wild game. We are not against Horse Shows featuring flat shod natural Tennessee Walking Horses. According to famous Tennessean newspaper Sportswriter Mr. David Climer, “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses is akin to “Dog Fighting” and “Cock Fighting”. For years, many of those involved in the Tennessee walking horse industry have yearned for its competitions to be taken seriously as a legitimate sport. Blood sport, yes. Legitimate sport, no. Sorry, but I’m calling horse excrement. Soring is still in common practice, and everybody knows it.” Native Tennessean MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says: "the “Big Lick” is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses. The fact is the big lick can only be accomplished by soring. When one soring technique becomes detectable, another one is developed. The big lick is a learned response to pain and if horses have not been sored, they do not learn it.” CCABLAC animal welfare advocates have peacefully publicly demonstrated against this Animal Cruelty from the Gulf of Mexico at Panama City Beach, FL; to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC; to Nashville, Columbia & Shelbyville, Tennessee; to Times Square in your New York City; to the Nation’s Capitol in Washington, D.C. Videos taken by CCABLAC animal welfare advocates at “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Shows have reached over 7+ million persons. The Tennessee public has responded to calls to “BOYCOTT” the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. The Federal Rule has unprecedented Bi-Partisan support. The lead Sponsor is Tea Party Republican Rep. Ted Yoho, DVM (R-FL) who is a large animal vet. The other lead sponsor is Blue Dog Democrat Rep. Kurt Schrader, DVM (D-OR), also a large animal vet. The Federal Rule was proposed on July 26, 2016. Over 135,000 public comments were made, and 95% favored publication of the Rule in the Federal Register. Over 182 U. S. Representatives wrote a letter to the Secretary of Agriculture on October 25, 2016, “strongly” urging U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to “expeditiously finalize” the Rule (to abolish ‘Big Lick’ Animal Cruelty). The American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Horse Council have strongly endorsed the proposed Federal Rule. They know the score. Mr. President, key persons in the Republican establishment have been bought and paid for where this issue is concerned. Former House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) blocked a vote on this in 2014. Unfortunately, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has taken over $750,000.00 from the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty interests since 1988. He will not let this measure be voted upon by the U. S. Senate. Mr. President, please do the right thing to help “The Horses” who cannot speak for themselves” To do so, you will have to go against some key members of the Republican Establishment, but by doing so, you will win over many people who have doubted you. It is what you promised when you ran for President, and said yesterday in your Inaugural Address: “The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes starting right here and right now. Because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you.” Mr. President, “the establishment” will not protect “The Horses” who cannot speak for themselves. This is a marvelous opportunity for you to "Make America Great Again" by taking the side of these magnificent horses who cannot speak for themselves. Mr. President, please fulfill YOUR promise to “WE, The People”, and "Make America Great Again", by helping “The Horses” Who Cannot Speak For Themselves". ---------------------------------------------------------------------- After you SIGN, please SHARE this petition with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter! A CCABLAC delegation will deliver Your PETITION Signatures and Comments to the White House, Secretary of Agriculture and Director, OMB (Office of Management and Budget). WE, The People, CCABLAC (Citizens Campaign Against "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty) - “We Speak FOR “The Horses” Who Cannot Speak For Themselves”.
Petition to Mr. Matt Buchanan, N. David Smith, William "Bill" Moore
Cancel and Boycott “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Classes - North Carolina Championship Show
Please SIGN this Petition to STOP “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to beautiful Tennessee Walking Horses. Asheville and Fletcher, North Carolina, are two progessive beautiful cities located in Western North Carolina. Both are known for gentle tolerance, enlightenment and kindness. Unfortunately, these two cities are hosting the three day “Big Lick” North Carolina Championship Walking Horse Show, Oct. 6 – 8. Sadly, the horse show will feature “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses. Tennessee Walking Horses are tortured from an early age to learn how to do the “Big Lick”. It is a pain induced gait. The horses throw their legs high while wearing Chains and 6 – 8 pound stack shoes. Caustic chemicals are applied to sensitive skin above the horses hooves, and then wrapped with plastic to “cook in” the chemicals which causes the skin to be blistered. When the chains hit the skin, the horses throw their front legs high while squatting down on their back legs – creating the cruel “Big Lick”. “Big Lick” TWH are the only horses in America which wear Chains in the show ring. According to Tennessean and Noted Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner, the "Big Lick" is a "business built on the suffering and pain of horses". Dr. Haffner is a member of the Horse Science Faculty at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) in Murfreesboro, TN. Even worse, the horse show will be held at the McGough Arena at the Western North Carolina Agriculture Center owned by the State of North Carolina. Of 83 total horse classes 45 will feature the “Big Lick” gait. In March 2015, the North Carolina Commissioner of Agriculture banned “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses from the 2015 NC State Fair. This action came after a Change.Org Petition gained almost 20,000 signatures, and a public Protest was held at the 2014 NC State Fair. At the 2015 North Carolina Championship Horse Show, USDA Vet inspectors disqualified a shocking 35% of all the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses they inspected for allegedly being in violation of the Horse Protection Act (Animal Cruelty). On July 25, 2016, the U. S. Secretary of Agriculture took action and opened a Public Comment period to make the “Big Lick” illegal by removing the “Pads and Chains”, consequently abolishing the “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. So far over 81% of the “Public Comments” favor the Federal Regulation to the Horse Protection Act. The Regulation can be made official after October 26, 2016. It’s time for Americans, and people all over the World, to urge the General Manager of the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center; North Carolina Chief Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture; and the Mayor of Fletcher, North Carolina to ban the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse classes, and to urge the public to Boycott “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty. After you SIGN, please SHARE the petition with your friends and family via email, Facebook, and Twitter! Your PETITION Signatures and Comments will be delivered to the proper officials.

Justice for the 4 month old puppy HANGED by the "mother of 5" in Barsa, Romania
It came to my attention in the media that this horrible human being,some say MOTHER OF 5, hanged a 4 month old puppy with a plastic bag. Because the plastic bag broke, she proceeded to use a wire to hang the puppy. The puppy fought for his life and cut his throat but survived and escaped.The puppy is rescued by a kind human. This woman violates the animal protection law of both Romania and EU. This petition is forwarded to the POLICE OF ARAD AND POLICE OF THE VILLAGE BARSA where the woman leaves to investigate the case and apply the law. I also demand a written report to be publicized with the measures taken. Where there is animal cruelty, there is child abuse too! POLICE OFFICE IN BARSA,ARAD, Romania Address: Com.
