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.

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.

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 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.

Stop the Starvation of Community Cats of Disneyland Area/ Anaheim!
Anaheim Law said DISNEYLAND & Residents Must STARVE their BELOVED Stray CATS! The Ban was finally legally dropped but citizens are still being told by enforcement officers to starve cats! UPDATE: The city of Anaheim finally changed the law to make it LEGAL again now to feed stray cats - but the city's officers are still telling residents they must stop feeding hungry kitties!!! We are telling the city to train their officers to allow feeding of innocent homeless and abandoned kitties! It does no good to drop the feeding ban if people are still being told to stop feeding!! MORE INFORMATION: 2 and a half years ago, the City of Anaheim enacted a new code that made it illegal for residents to feed feral cats. Rather than spending their resources on humane spay/neuter programs, the city began harassing and threatening caretakers for simply feeding community cats; innocent creatures that depend on devoted feeders for their very lives. Not only does this hurt cats, it turns warmhearted people into criminals. Anaheim is home to Disneyland, which has its own famous feral cat community. Anaheim Fix Project fought hard to get the law changed - and finally the ban was dropped. But some officers are still telling people to stop feeding and Anaheim Fix Project is trying to get the city to retrain their officers - and the group is also spay/neutering (TNR) and rescuing as many cats and kittens as possible! The rescue group, Anaheim Fix Project is providing spay/neuter, vet care, rescue, and providing food for hundreds of homeless and abandoned stray cats and kittens of Anaheim and surrounding Orange County cities, but the group is very small and underfunded. They are overstretched, overwhelmed and unable to keep up. They don’t have the resources or people to save all the kitties in need! For more information please visit the Facebook page for Anaheim Fix Project / OC Communitry Cats: https://www.facebook.com/AnaheimFullertonTNR To Make a Donation: https://www.gofundme.com/HelpSave-Suffering-Kittens They are in dire need of donations to help feed the 500 plus kitties who depend on them for food and care everyday! Thank you for any help at all! No amount is too small! Let us know if you live in Orange County, California and would like to VOLUNTEER with Anaheim Fix Project! Come Help the Kitties! Thank you for caring! Anaheim Fix Project: OC Community Cats / Caring Friends Cat Rescue
