Tell Popeyes Chicken: End the Cruelty Now
Popeyes has been cooking up something terrifying. Though Popeyes claims the chickens they source are subjected to “ethical, humane treatment,” the truth is much scarier...and it all starts on a factory farm. Chickens raised for meat make up 95% of farmed animals in America—and because of cruel farming practices, they suffer more, too. The vast majority of factory farmed chickens spend their entire lives with no access to the outdoors, crowded by the thousands in dimly-lit sheds. The birds have no access to natural light and little room to roam—in fact, each chicken generally spends her life in a space roughly the size of a sheet of paper. But here’s the really frightening part: factory farming has turned the modern chicken into a genetic monster who grows so big, so fast, she often struggles to stand under her own massive weight—a real-life Frankenchicken. She’s a prisoner of her own body, often unable to move freely and vulnerable to heart, lung, and leg problems. This is a bird bred to suffer. There are billions of Frankenchickens just like her—and Popeyes is supporting the cruel practices that bring them to life. You can stop this. It’s time for Popeyes to end the horror show by committing to a better breed of bird, one whose genetics do not inherently cause suffering, and better living conditions that let chickens be chickens. Sign the petition to tell Popeyes you don’t support the Frankenchicken. Other restaurants like Subway, Burger King, Moe's Southwest Grill, Panera, Chipotle, Qdoba, Jack in the Box, and more have already committed to improving the lives of chickens. Join Compassion in World Farming in demanding that Popeyes raise the bar for chickens—sign this petition today and help spread the word by sharing it with friends and family. Because chickens deserve better than a factory farm.
Petition to Hordaland Statsadvokatembeter, Justis- og beredskapsminister Per-Willy Amundsen
Man gets no jail sentence or fine for abusing puppies to death. We demand strict penalty
En 32 år gammel mann fra Bergen ble nylig idømt 21 dager betinget fengsel og forbud mot å ha hund i 5 år, etter å ha mishandlet flere valper til døde. Med den betinga dommen vil han ikke sone en dag i fengsel. Dommen gjaldt den siste valpen, som ble systematisk mishandlet over en periode på flere måneder i 2015. Valpen som het Lord ble ukentlig slått og sparket og påført skader i ben og ribben, og han ble bitt til blods i snuten av eieren. Han døde alene i leiligheten etter å ha blitt mishandlet en siste gang. Mannen har innrømmet å ha gjort det samme med et ukjent antall hunder før. Det er dokumentert at han kjøpte 8 dachsvalper i løpet av noen år, og at 7 av dem døde etter kort tid. Kun en av dem ble reddet etter at den ble oppdaget med bruddskader. De andre døde etter uker med grov mishandling. De led ubeskrivelig og levde i vedvarende redsel i en periode der de var ekstra sårbare og avhengige av beskyttelse. Til tross for dette kan han etter 5 år igjen få eie hund, og i mellomtiden kan han ha andre dyr. Den milde dommen er en hån mot dyrs rettsvern, og den gir en farlig signaleffekt. Den viser at de mest hjelpeløse fortsatt er uten rettsvern i Norge, og at folk kan mishandle dyr til døde uten å få verken bot eller fengselsstraff. Sammenhengen mellom vold mot dyr og vold mot mennesker er grundig dokumentert. Dette bør norsk rettsvesen ta innover seg. Både for dyrs og menneskers sikkerhet er det svært viktig at dyremishandling tas på alvor. Vi ber om at dommen ankes og at strafferammen på 3 års fengsel benyttes i grove saker som denne, i tillegg til fradømming av retten til dyrehold på livstid. English: A 32-year-old Norwegian man gets away with only 21 days conditional imprisonment and a ban on having dogs for 5 years, after mistreating several puppies to death. With the conditional sentence he will not serve a day in prison. The judgment was for the last puppy, who was systematically abused over a period of months in 2015. The puppy named Lord was regularly kicked and beaten, causing injuries to his legs and ribs, and he was bitten in the nose by his owner, leaving an open wound. Ha finally died alone in the apartment from his injuries. The man has admitted to have done the same to numerous dogs before, all of them puppies. It is documented that he purchased 8 dachs puppies before 2015, and that 7 of them died shortly after. Only one was rescued after it was discovered with fractures. The others died after terrible suffering. Despite of this he can own dogs again after 5 years, and in the meantime he can have other animals. The link between violence to animals and violence to humans is well documented. This should be taken into consideration by the Norwegian judiciary. For the safety of both animals and humans it is very important to take animal abuse seriously. We request that the sentence is appealed and that the maximum penalty of 3 years prison is used in cases like this, in addition to denial of the right to own animals for lifetime.

Allow Esther the Wonder Pig to Receive Emergency Treatment and Return Home
Esther the Wonder Pig has been raised at the home of Derek Walter & Steve Jenkins, and she is the founding member of the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary in Campbellville, Ontario, where she currently resides. Esther's story has inspired hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Her book Esther the Wonder Pig: Changing the World One Heart at a Time is a NY Times Bestseller and she's made countless TV and radio appearances. While Esther is a star, to Derek and Steve, she is a very important member of their family. Esther has recently fallen ill, and is currently being treated at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph. Unfortunately, she needs immediate, urgent testing that can only be provided at Cornell University Veterinary Hospital in Ithaca, NY. The problem is that Esther would be required to undergo a 3 week quarantine upon her return to Canada after she receives the tests and treatment that she needs at Cornell. Please sign the letter below and respectfully ask The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau and Mr. Paul Glover, President of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, to waive this requirement for Esther, who is truly a Canadian national treasure. #EsthersAppeal You don't have to contribute to sign, contributions made from this site go to change.org to help them in their mission and further promote the petition.

Petition to Turkish Ambassador Serdar Kılıç
Sign: Justice for Dog with Ears Cut Off for Selfies
In a now-viral image circulating throughout Turkish social media, two young men pose proudly next to a cowering dog with bloody stumps for ears, each man holding what appears to be a dog ear in his hand. According to Turkish news, the pair are suspected to be involved in dogfighting, and were reportedly punishing one of their losing dogs. The Turkish justice system has now let the men off with a fine of just over what is equivalent to $1,000 U.S. dollars. And no jail time. This lax punishment is not acceptable for inflicting such reprehensible harm on an animal. These men's shockingly light sentence is not even close to proportional to the pain and suffering they senselessly inflicted on an innocent animal — let alone the multiple dogs presumably forced to tear each other to shreds in fights staged for human entertainment. Animals are not toys. They are not property. They have thoughts and feelings, as backed up by research demonstrating that dogs are just as sentient as a human child. What’s more, cruelty to animals is irrefutably linked to cruelty to human beings. This incident of grossly inhumane treatment highlights the urgent need for the Turkish government to revisit their animal cruelty laws. Please sign this petition now to call on Turkey's Ambassador to the United States, Serdar Kılıç, to advocate for stronger punishment for animal abuse. Dogs like this deserve justice, and animal torture must be treated like the serious crime that it truly is.

Free The Chalkwell Park Peacocks
Peacocks confined in an enclosure at Chalkwell Park are being denied their freedom to exhibit natural behavior such as flying, roaming and roosting in trees. For many, seeing these magnificent birds in permanent captivity is saddening and an unpleasant part of the Chalkwell Park experience. They should be rehomed to a more spacious and appropriate environment, such as a stately home or sanctuary.

United States MUST Update Rabies Vaccine Laws
I'd like to call this law (once it gets to be a law) " Freedom's Law " in honor of my Service Dog. Our laws about Rabies vaccines just do not match the science. And we are harming/killing our pets, livestock, etc, by insisting on repeating the vaccines one or every three years; when Animal Immunologists know that "boosters" are useless and unnecessary. They know ONE vaccine (at around 4-6 months of age range) confers life-long immunity. Even if Titer Tests show no results, it's still dormant but can be activated if the animal needs the immunity. This affects not just pets. Or livestock. It also severely and detrimentally affects people who have Service Dogs or Service (mini) Horses, or Military Working Dogs, or Police Dogs, etc. France did a study on rabies vaccine efficacy and adjusted their laws based on their findings. www.rabieschallengefund.org - someone here in USA wants to do a similar study, in hopes it will help us get these laws to match the science. Please adjust these laws? Set up a database of which animal has had ONE vaccine at 4-6 months old, Titer Test thereafter, and do NO more regardless of the results of the titer test. Then we can quit harming our furry friends or helpers. UPDATE: " ' And, instead of quarantine (which can cost thousands of dollars) or euthanizing a dog or cat or other animal who's had a rabies vaccine, if it has been bitten by another animal. Should just get a booster ' '' -- Kansas State University's new protocol advises to AVMA. Even though that is a risk, it is still better for the family who loves their pet than 6-8 months of quarantine or worse. This is based on Kansas State University's new test results, protocol advocacy. But, again, I'm still advocating that our laws be updated to match the science. I guess AVMA's recent update (based on Kansas State University's advisement) is a step in the right direction. However, since vaccines themselves can and do cause harm, even death, I hope that someday the laws will be updated again to where " ' Only ONE vaccine in a lifetime and NO more ' ''. Or, in the cases of where the animal has had any illness(es) prior to the appointment, then, a NOSODE should be used instead. Australia and some other areas of the world DO use nosodes instead and still see results WITHOUT the harmful side-effects (such as behavior changes, allergies, etc). I know Australia accepts NOSODES against rabies instead of vaccines. I wish American laws would allow nosodes, too. Since nosodes works from a much more natural means than injection and can be adjusted to the individual animal's or person's needs. Whereas, the vaccine is not adjusted due to the animal / person's size, etc, at all. Nosodes work by being ingested through the mouth. This is a MUCH more natural way to get the animal's immune system to react to the 'invader' than injection. AND, nosodes do NOT carry toxic metals, several other animals species' DNA, human DNA, or other chemicals. Truly, nosodes are the best way to go. http://www.naturalrearing.com/coda/a_rabies_the_big_scam.html http://www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com/AnimalWellness/Petvacc.aspx and http://vitalanimal.com/vaccination-safety/ and http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/rabies-vaccination-and-aggression-in-dogs/ and http://www.dogs4dogs.com/blog/2008/06/18/20/ and http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/is-there-hope-for-rabies-law-reform/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=facebook_page&utm_medium=Dogs+Naturally+Magazine and http://www.ahvma.org/rabies-press-release/ and http://www.k-state.edu/media/newsreleases/dec15/ahvmarabies12115.html and http://www.dogs4dogs.com/blog/2016/02/11/rabies-vaccination-change/ and http://news.wisc.edu/schultz-dog-vaccines-may-not-be-necessary/ and http://vitalanimal.com/rabies-titer-gone/ and http://www.protectthepets.com/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc4tNd1t-qs&t=53s http://vitalanimal.com/right-choices-rabies/ https://www.thewholedog.org/id63.html (nosodes explained) https://www.change.org/p/us-congress-evolve-with-science-people-animals-first-not-profit-stop-the-over-vaccinating-of-our-animals-now/u/20042288?recruiter=695988875&utm_source=share_update&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=facebook_link
Petition to Mike Navarre
Revoke the nonprofit corporation status of Crazy Dog Kennels and Canine Rescue in Paxson.
Please revoke the nonprofit corporation status of Crazy Dog Kennels and Canine Rescue (entity #101639). We ask this largely due to the deplorable conditions these dogs are forced to live in - they are chained to dilapidated dog houses in various states of deterioration; they have rusty coffee cans for water buckets; they are forced to constantly walk on mud, urine, and feces because they have limited movement due to being chained. This kennel also breeds one or more litters of dogs every year and competes in high-profile sled dog races for cash prizes, complete with merchandise for sale. This is not in any way, shape, or form to be considered a "rescue," and should not be able to claim nonprofit status and ask for tax deductible donations. Photos on the musher's Facebook page of deplorable conditions have since been removed since the start of this petition. Saved copies can be seen by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and will be filed with this petition. Sled dogs need to be rescued from this place - there is no way this should be listed as a nonprofit rescue in and of itself when their animals are forced to live in such horrific conditions.

Black Jaguar White Tiger Please Return My Savannahs
My name is Andrea. I live in the US. Over a year and a half ago, I was erroneously and incorrectly pressured by my veterinarian to find temporary housing for my two Savannah cats. She thought tearing apart cardboard (they didn’t eat it) was a form of pica/anxiety that could be solved with a large area of outdoor space. I reached out to Eduardo Serio as I saw him as a savior of big cats. I made the fateful decision to send them to Black Jaguar White Tiger. Serio promised to provide my cats (who were extremely well cared for - for more information and evidence refer to my Instagram @Lion_Hearted_Gurl) with lots of outdoor space on 22 acres of the 2000 acres he claimed to have. Once I arrived with my cats at the BJWT facility in Mexico, I immediately realized I had made a fateful mistake. There was no 22 acres; there was only a house which housed new born lion cubs, a house which was a completely inappropriate environment, and lacked enrichment and warmth. I wanted to take my cats and return to the United States but was coerced by my partner to leave them in Serio’s care. I left with Serio’s promises ringing in my ears he would look after them and would send me weekly updates and visitation. None of that eventuated. He made it clear on social media they were becoming a nuisance to him. When I asked to come get my cats, things took a turn for the worst. Serio took to his social media, calling me crazy, accusing me of abusing my cats (even though Serio is the one on video kicking one of them) refused to talk to me, refused to show me my beloved animals I had entrusted to his care. He blocked me, unblocked me, taunted me, teased me then blocked me again. He destroyed my character and reputation. Serio had promised to return my cats to America, only if I agreed to give him US$1600 (normal people would call this extortion, Serio preferred to say “reimbursement”). After I acquiesced, and publicly paid Serio the money (check my Instagram for the demand video and PayPal receipt), on Facebook Live he laughed at me, thanked me for the “donation” and said he was keeping my cats. Then, after several fans offered to murder me for daring to beg for the return of my cats, Serio “accidentally” published my name, phone number, and email on his social media sites, without giving a thought to my welfare and safety. I have lodged a police report with the Mexican embassy in California and they have forwarded the report to the Attorney General in Mexico. I did not sign ownership papers over to Serio. They are still legally my cats. I have attained the services of a Mexican lawyer. They have requested Serio to appear in court and voluntarily return my cats to me through the American Embassy on 3 separate occasions. Eduardo Serio has been cited to appear in court. Aeromexico offered to help transport the cats back to the US but Serio refused to cooperate. I learned later that BJWT is NOT recognised by Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). Serio will block anyone who questions him about my cats, documentation of his rescues and or proof that he does not support the declawing of animals in his possession. He also has a track record of publicly shaming women who disagree with him. He publicly defamed and shamed a young woman in Colombia on the pretense she stalled the transfer of 6 lions which Serio wanted to import to his facility in Mexico. He made statements on his social media there was a warrant for her arrest and that she was an “animal murderer.” The reality was his CITES permit had expired and after applying and receiving a new one, the lions are still languishing in Colombia due to his own incompetence. He recently publicly shamed a woman in Mexico by the name of Erika Ortigoza calling her a prostitute and saying she is sleeping with government officials in order to gain favors for her work. He sexually demeans any woman who questions his unethical animal welfare practices, saying they are sexually unable to fulfil the needs of men, calling them fat and ugly. His "secret" @thekerfuffler Instagram account is getting increasingly racist and mean. All I want is the return of my cats but they have now disappeared. I do not know where they are and I fear for their safety. My Lawyer will continue with legal proceedings against him. It is my hope you can help bring to light his grievous actions against my cats, myself and others he has targeted and above all get my Savannah cats returned safely to me.
