Justice for Wombat stoned to death
An off-duty police officer was filmed stoning a wombat to death while his mate watched, filmed, and laughed. Police, off-duty or not, should be held to high standards. Celebrating an act of animal cruelty in this way is unacceptable. Wombats are beautiful, gentle creatures and do not deserve such cruel torment. We have dedicated our entire lives to saving these beautiful animals and here is the polar opposite. It hurts our heart and this is something we will never forget. May this baby not have suffered and died in vain. Aboriginal elder Major Sumner said legislation needed to be strengthened to ensure that traditional hunting laws were not exploited. Major Sumner denounced the stoning of the wombat as “wrong” and showing “no respect”. We are asking for these perpetrators to be investigated under the Animal Welfare Act, and to ensure pre-existing laws are not exploited in cases of animal cruelty.

STOP ANIMAL TESTING - Close the “Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology“ Hamburg
DE/EN/ITA/ES Hi , my name is Carolin Iding, I am 26 years old and live in a small village near Hamburg.I have decided to raise my voice for those who have no voice on our planet - the animals. That's why I have opened this petition. On October 11th, the SOKO Animal Welfare and Cruelty Free International has published images and investigations about the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology ("LPT"). The LPT is an experimental laboratory in which approximately 12,000 animals (including beagle, monkeys, cats and rabbits) are systematically tormented and misused as test objects for industrial and agricultural chemicals. This makes the LPT to one of the largest animal testing laboratories in the EU. The monkeys live in small cages, many of them have developed compulsive behaviors and only move in circles. They are fixed on their heads for trials and punished with the utmost rudeness, so they suffer bloody injuries. The beagle only see humans during feeding times or when they are picked up for the experiments. And even then, they happily wag their tails, so much they need human caring. The rest of the time, they vegetate in their cages, which are covered in blood by the poisoning symptoms of the tests, until the moment they die lonely and agonizing. Most of these studies end in death, after which many of them are literally slaughtered and end up in garbage bags. The LPT has operated for years in the greatest secrecy, external views and visits were undesirable and were rejected in a charmless way. We all know now why! When I think about how much animals are suffering in this moment behind the walls of the LPT and experiencing hell on earth, everything in me contracts. No creature deserves to be treated like that and to die in this way! Therefore, we demand the immediate closure of the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Hamburg and Mienenbüttel by the authorities and nothing else!

Petition to RSPCA
Justice for Homer
Homer deserves to have his story told.... Almost 6 years ago, Homer was seized by RSPCA as a 5-month-old puppy, under Breed Specific legislation, along with his dad Jack. Held in kennels for such a long time, Jack gave up the fight and he died frightened and alone. Homer was assessed as a Pit Bull type dog, not by a Dog Legislation Officer as is customary, but by a vet that who was actually paid for directly by the RSPCA. It is believed that RSPCA has spent an estimated £280,000 of donated money, trying to kill this poor dog, who has done nothing wrong. Despite this and the clear discrepancies between the expert opinions, Homer has been condemned to death. He is waiting in kennels right now, for his sentence to be carried and he will be put to sleep in the coming days. Homer has done nothing wrong, so why has the RSPCA has only argued for destruction without any compromise? Last year, the RSPCA headlined a national campaign to end Breed Specific Legislation, at the same time as using your donations to take court action to enforce it against Homer. Which face should we believe? Please save Homer by signing this petition demanding that RSPCA accept that killing Homer would be a huge miscarriage of justice. We ask that they re-apply to court, to suspend the destruction order, as clearly this dog is not a danger to the public and does not deserve to die.
Petition to donedeal
Ban Dog sales on Donedeal
The sale of pups and dogs on Donedeal feeds the Puppy farming industry in Ireland. There are thousands of animals for sale or free to good home. There are people advertising looking for particular animals to breed, use for bait or food. People can set up numerous accounts to try hide the amount of animals they sell. It is one of the largest forums for selling animals in Ireland. It is fueling the industry. Rescues are over run with pets needing homes and cleaning up the mess caused by these forums allowing them to advertise for free. Let's get it stopped. Make it harder for these breeders to advertise. Its not a piece of furniture for sale, it is lives. Please sign this petition so we can start shutting this forum down.

Qld Racing Needs To Find Homes For Retired Racehorses Too
We are petitioning Racing Queensland and the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission to set up an adoption program for all retired racehorses, similar to the Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP) that QRIC funds. SAQ announced their horse adoption program will cease to accept any further retired OTT Standardbred racehorses for rehoming as from 1st October, 2019. The Standardbred Association Queensland Inc (SAQ) have regrettably been forced to announce that they are no longer in a position to accept any further retired OTT Standardbred racehorses through its long standing and very successful Adoption Program, due to lack of financial support from Control and Integrity Bodies. SAQ established its Horse Adoption Program in 2002, and over the past 17 years has rehomed almost 1,200 Standardbreds, transitioning into both pleasure and performance horses after their retirement from their traditional role of Harness Racing. This program has been run entirely by volunteers, with very limited resources and funding, and the current demand from owners and trainers requiring assistance with rehoming their retired racehorses is no longer manageable by this small group without much needed help from the Racing Industry. The Association has been trying to initiate a meeting with Racing Industry stakeholders to discuss rehoming strategies and options for the future of this industry, but sadly, our requests for assistance from Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC), Racing Queensland, and the Minister for Racing, Stirling Hinchliffe, have not been seen as urgent. SAQ will continue to attempt to find suitable homes for the existing 18 Standardbreds currently on our books, and follow up all obligatory health checks for the 130 horses rehomed through our Adoption Program this past year and are still under an adoption contract. SAQ is the only Standardbred Breed Society in Queensland, and will continue to organise and run our annual championships, events, musters, clinics & training days, share the success stories and actively promote the attributes of the breed beyond racing. It is now time for the racing industry to come together and start taking some responsibility for the welfare of racehorses for their entire lifetime, not just when earning money as racehorses for the government, the industry of racing and wagering. For too long it has been left to a small minority of volunteers who have apassion to step up and advocate for these forgotten animals! If the government can find money to invest in increasing racing prizemoney, then surely, they can find money to invest in ensuring these horses are looked after when retiring from racing. It shouldn’t take a scandal such as what happened with the greyhounds to find that money! It is unfair that only that code is fully funded to operate the Greyhound Adoption Program (GAP), leaving the Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds to fend for themselves, with the expectation that small volunteer groups will hopefully fill the void. Help us to let Racing Queensland and the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission know that as a community we hold them responsible for welfare of the Racehorses for the whole of their life not just during racing, by signing this petition and sharing it with everyone you know.

Petition to The Mayor of Ramallah Dr.Laila Ghannam
Stop the Palestinian Authority (PA) Municipalities from Shooting Dogs
We are Animal Welfare supporters . Animal lovers and human beings all over, International and local. We are asking Dear Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to please immediately stop the shooting's, of dogs in the Palestinian cities of Ramallah Bethlehem Etc..The stray dogs are being called a nuisance,Hence they are being shoot on a daily basis. Alot of the dogs do not die immediately !They are left to suffer in agony ,waiting hours till death.They are left on the streets to rot ,which is also a health hazard ! we are pleading to please stop this terrible crime. Instead of shooting the poor dogs, we are suggesting a more Humane approach, of spaying/ neutering ,vaccinating and releasing the dogs back to the wild. This will drastically decrease the number of dogs. A female dog gives birth to a litter of between 5 to10 puppies twice a year. This would be decreased with a spay/neuter program. The dogs are suffering from lack of food and terrible abuse. The solution is not to shoot! But to spay/ neuter and release the dogs. The dogs can be tagged and designated feeding areas could be created. This would be the right and humane way to treat the animals. We ask you to please show the world your kind side and take a much more Humane approach .This is not a political petition! This is purely an animal welfare concern. Please Dear Friends worldwide help us by signing this petition so that we could save those poor dogs, from a life of misery and agonizing death.
