Petition to Theresa May MP, RSPCA, Xi Jinping, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, UK Parliament, European Parliament, National People's Congress, Elizabeth ll
Make animal cruelty illegal in China.
China is one of if not the worst country when it comes to animal cruelty, each year thousands of animals are brutally killed and in front of each other. Did you know regularly in China dogs are stuffed into small cages before being hanged up by their paws and skinned alive, this happens in front of other dogs and those dogs see what's going to happen to them and they start barking and wailing in fear and for what so some rich people can wear fur clothing? This has to stop every animal can feel pain people need to stop thinking that because they can't speak they can't feel either and that means we control them but we don't! Animals were here first this is their world not ours we need to respect them! In the photo attached to this petition you can see a dog very much still alive having a leg sawn off and there's more to come for that terrified dog and many other animals. Pets are actually stolen off of the street, taken from their loving homes and killed in the most painful ways possible. I am absolutely disgraced to be human if that's what other humans will do for no good reason. Some of us clearly have no humanity in us if we can do this to poor defenceless animals or just sit back and pretend it's not happening because it is happening... right now! So please be the right kind of human and have humanity, sign the petition do these animals good and pass it on so we have a greater chance of stopping this. Please help them, because they need you to care.
Petition to The owner of Ashtaraki Dzor Restaurant
ANIMAL EXPLOITATION: SURRENDER THREE SUFFERING BEARS CAGED AT A RESTAURANT
These three caged bears are used by the owner of Ashtaraki Dzor restaurant in Armenia to attract visitors and tourists to the venue. In spite of complaints from local animal lovers, he refuses to let us rescue them . He is fighting hard to hold on to the bears who have been robbed of their dignity, their freedom and their ability to express all natural wild bear behaviour. They should be roaming in the Armenian mountains, not locked in a cage so that visitors to the restaurant can laugh and poke fun at them. Our petition aims to raise awareness of the miserable plight of these poor animals and put pressure on the owner to surrender them. Your signature really will make a difference. Please help us set these helpless bears free. They are suffering mentally and physically from their imprisonment. The sight of their misery is heart-breaking. But once we have the go-ahead to rescue them, we can move them to our purpose-built rescue centre where they will be treated with compassion and respect. The expert team at our centre has a wealth of experience in the rehabilitation of rescued bears and will give them all the treatment and care they need to recover from their years in captivity. These three beautiful bears are relying on the kindness of animal lovers like you to stand up and fight for them. Please don’t let them down. Please sign the petition urging the owner of Ashtaraki Dzor Restaurant to surrender the bears to International Animal Rescue. Thank you International Animal Rescue launched its Great Bear Rescue campaign in November 2017 and has since rescued 23 caged bears from lives of mind-numbing boredom and frustration behind bars. Some of these bears will be candidates for reintroduction into protected areas of the Armenian countryside, while those that can no longer fend for themselves will be given lifelong care. Support our Great Bear Rescue campaign here.
Petition to To the Prime minister Ramush Haradinaj, AUVK , Kosovo veterinary and food agency
Stop dogfighting in Kosovo now and close all the kennels where dogs are bred especially for dog fighting.
Summary: We request from Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, AUVK, and Kosovo Police to stop this cruel act once and for ever and to instruct all police forces to take action against the offenders and the abuse of dogs for fights.Personal story: I am starting this petition to stop the sick blood sport of dog fighting in Kosovo and to close all the dog breeding kennels Where dogs are bred especially for dog fights. Dogfights are taking place every day in Kosovo. In Rahovec Kosovo just recently in January 2019 two dogs were forced to fight each other until one of the dogs died from bleeding injuries. I have also come across people who have made dog fighting an online business. They breed dogs especially for dogfighting and they advertise them and sell them via Facebook. The biggest one is in Prizren Kosovo Fighting dogs are kept isolated from other dogs and most people, so they spend most of their lives on short, heavy chains. The conditioning of fighting dogs may make use of a variety of legal and illegal drugs, including anabolic steroids to enhance muscle mass and encourage aggressiveness. Narcotic drugs may also be used to increase the dogs’ aggression, increase reactivity and mask pain or fear during a fight. Fighting dogs may have their ears cropped and tails docked close to their bodies. Fighters usually perform this cropping/docking themselves using crude and inhumane techniques. Dogs forced into fighting suffer terrible injuries, both from the fights and at the hands of their vicious 'owners'. Most will ultimately be killed in the ring or die soon after from their injuries. Those who can no longer fight are often brutally dispatched. This barbaric practice must be stopped. Those that take place in dog fighting are generally involved in other illegal behaviors. Dog fighting is barbaric and cannot be allowed to be part of a modern society. Instead of tolerating such cruel acts which have impacts on human minds and their willingness to accept killings of living existences, we demand the Prime Minister to adapt a law for animal protection, putting every cruelty against animals and every offence under severe punishment. Will you join me today by signin this petition to help bring dog fighters to justice? The issue: Dog fighting is barbaric and we cannot allow it to be part of modern society.Take action! Dogfighting is the worst thing to happen to dogs. It's brutal. The people who do this are disgusting and should be ashamed of what they're doing. Dogs are supposed to be loved not killed. I care about all dogs and they deserve to be treated with love and respect. Please join me by signing my petition so that all dogs in Kosova are treated with love and respect they deserve Thank you. A.D.F.C Kosovo Manager Shqip-Albanian Ne kërkojmë nga Kryeministri Ramush Haradinaj, AVUK dhe Policia e Kosovës që ta ndalojnë këtë akt mizor një herë e përgjithmonë dhe t'i udhëzojnë të gjitha forcat e policisë që të ndërmarrin veprime kundër shkelësve dhe keqpërdorimit të qenve për luftime. Historia personale: Po e filloj këtë peticion për të ndaluar sportin e gjakut e luftimeve të qenve në Kosovë dhe për të mbyllur të gjitha kutitë e mbarështimit të qenve ku qenët rriten vetem për luftra te qenve . Luftimet e ashpra po zhvillohen çdo ditë në Kosove. Ne janar te ketij viti 2019 ne Rahovec Kosovo nje qen i pafajshem hupi jeten mizorisht duke luftuar sepse ishte detyruar te perlahet me nje qen per qeshtje argetimi. Unë kam hasur edhe nëpër njerëz që kanë bërë një biznes online. Ata mbareshtojne qentë për luftime dhe reklamohen per shitje nëpërmjet Facebook-ut. Më e madhja është në Prizren Kosovae. Qenet mbahen të izoluar nga njerezit dhe , kështu që ata kalojnë shumicën e jetës së tyre në zinxhirë të shkurtër dhe të rëndë. Kondicionimi i qenve luftarakë mund të përdorë një shumëllojshmëri të barnave ligjore dhe ilegale, duke përfshirë steroidet anabolike për të rritur masën e muskujve dhe për të nxitur agresivitetin. Drogat narkotike mund të përdoren gjithashtu për të rritur agresionin e qenve, për të rritur reaktivitetin dhe për të maskuar dhimbjen ose frikën gjatë një lufte. Qen eve te luftrave iu priten veshet pa anestezion dhe pa ndihme veterinare, zakonisht kryejnë këtë prerje duke përdorur teknika të papërpunuara dhe çnjerëzore. Qentë të detyruar në luftime vuajnë nga lëndime të tmerrshme, si nga luftimet ashtu edhe nga dora e pronarëve të tyre të egër. Shumica në fund të fundit do të vriten në rrjet ose do të vdesin shpejt pas nga lëndimet e tyre. Ata që nuk mund të luftojnë më shpesh trajtohen brutalisht. Kjo praktikë barbare duhet të ndalet. Ata që ndodhin në luftimin e qenve janë përgjithësisht të përfshirë në sjellje të tjera të paligjshme. Luftimi i qenve është barbar dhe nuk mund të lejohet të jetë pjesë e një shoqërie moderne. Në vend që të tolerojmë akte të tilla mizore që kanë ndikim në mendjet e njeriut dhe gatishmërinë e tyre për të pranuar vrasjet e ekzistencave të gjalla, ne kërkojmë nga Kryeministri që të përshtasë një ligj për mbrojtjen e kafshëve, duke vënë çdo mizori kundër kafshëve dhe çdo vepër penale nën dënim te ashpër. A do të bashkohet me mua sot duke nënshkruar këtë peticion për të ndihmuar dhe te ndalojm ket act mizor njehere e pergjithmone. Çështja: Luftimi i qenve është barbar dhe nuk mund ta lejojmë atë të jetë pjesë e shoqërisë moderne.Vepro! Luftimi me qentë është gjëja më e keqe që mind ti ndodh nje qenit. Është brutale. Njerëzit që bëjnë këtë janë të neveritshme dhe duhet të kenë turp për atë që po bëjnë. Qeni duhet të jetë i dashur dhe jo te malltretohet. Une I dua të gjithë qentë dhe ata meritojnë të trajtohen me dashuri dhe respekt. Ju lutem bashkohuni me mua dhe firmosni kërkesën time që të gjithë qentë në Kosovë të trajtohen me dashuri dhe respekt që meritojnë Faleminderit. A.D.F.C Kosovo Manager Serbian-Serbski Zahtevamo od premijera Ramuša Haradinaja, AUVK-a i Kosovske policije da jednom zauvek zaustave ovo okrutno delo i da svim policijskim snagama nalože da preduzmu mere protiv počinilaca i zlostavljanje pasa za borbe. Počinjem ovu peticiju da zaustavim bolestan krvni sukob borbe pasa na Kosovu i zatvorim sve uzgajivačnice za pse gde se psi uzgajaju posebno za borbe pasa. Svakodnevno se događaju borbe na Kosovu. U Orahovcu na Kosovu tek nedavno u januaru 2019. godine dva psa su bila primorana da se bore jedni protiv drugih dok jedan od pasa umro od krvarenja. Naišao sam na ljude koji su ovo napravili u online poslovanje. Uzgajaju pse posebno za borbe pasa i oglašavaju ih i prodaju ih putem Facebooka. Najveći je u Prizrenu. Psi na Kosovu borbe su izolovani od drugih pasa i većine ljudi, tako da većinu svog života provode na kratkim, teškim lancima. Uslovljavanje borbenih pasa može da koristi razne legalne i ilegalne droge, uključujući anaboličke steroide za povećanje mišićne mase i podsticanje agresivnosti. Narkotici se mogu koristiti i za povećanje agresije pasa, povećanje reaktivnosti i maskiranje bola ili straha tokom borbe. Borbeni psi imaju iseceni uši, a repove pristati u blizini njihovih tela. Borci obično obavljaju ovo sečenje / dokovanje koristeći sirove i nehumane tehnike. Psi koji su prisiljeni na borbu trpe strašne povrede, kako iz borbi, tako i od strane svojih zlih 'vlasnika'. Većina će na kraju biti ubijena u ringu ili će umreti ubrzo nakon povreda. Oni koji više ne mogu da se bore često se brutalno šalju. Ova varvarska praksa mora biti zaustavljena. Oni koji se odvijaju u borbama pasa uglavnom su uključeni u druga nezakonita ponašanja. Borba pasa je varvarska i ne može se dozvoliti da bude deo modernog društva. Umesto da tolerišemo takva okrutna dela koja utiču na ljudski um i njihovu spremnost da prihvate ubistva živih bića, zahtevamo od premijera da prilagodi zakon o zaštiti životinja, stavljajući svaku okrutnost prema životinjama i svako krivično delo pod strogom kaznom. Hoćeš li mi se danas pridružiti potpisivanjem ove peticije kako bi pomogao da se borci pasa privedu pravdi? Pitanje: Borba pasa je varvarska i ne možemo dozvoliti da bude deo modernog društva. Preduzeti! Borba sa psima je najgora stvar koja se događa psima. To je brutalno. Ljudi koji to rade su odvratni i trebalo bi da se stide onoga što rade. Psi treba da budu voljeni a ne ubijeni. Brinem o svim psima i oni zaslužuju da se prema njima postupa s ljubavlju i poštovanjem. Molim vas, pridružite mi se i potpišite moju peticiju tako da svi psi na Kosovu budu tretirani s ljubavlju i poštovanjem koje zaslužuju Hvala. A.D.F.C Kosovo Manager
Petition to CITES, Ms Magdel Boshoff
BAN THE SOUTH AFRICAN TRADE IN RHINO HORN AND THE GLOBAL TRADE IN ENDANGERED SPECIES PARTS
On the 5th April 2017 the late, South African Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa announced that she planned to permit the trade in rhino horn domestically and to allow the export internationally of Rhino Horn for 'personal purposes'. After losing a court case she chose the option to trade in rhino horn instead of re-instituting the moratorium on the domestic trade in rhino horn in the correct procedural manner. The South African Government has in the past been accused, and found guilty of corruption at the highest levels. Informed conservationists feared that the implementation process of the proposed permits for trade will be less than perfect. The rhino horn farmers have complained that they have had difficulties with obtaining permits that they have been stymied by the South African government and the bureaucracy of the CITES system. The rhino poaching statistics released in February 2019 have raised many questions. IF the poaching figures do really indicate a reduction in loss of rhino this fact would question the necessity for trade. Poaching figures may be less in the Kruger National Park BUT that is a result of fewer rhino being available to poach. Elephant poaching has increased in the Kruger National Park. Elephant poaching has increased dramatically in neighboring Botswana as discovered by scientist Dr Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders. Rhino in South Africa are still facing extinction. South Africa has lost half its rhino population since this crisis began. Conservationists have confirmed their own figures that on average three rhino per day are losing their lives to rhino poachers. The opening of the domestic trade of horn has not slowed the extinction of this iconic species. The South African Government are curators of an enormous Rhino Horn stockpile. The black market value of Rhino horn is £51 000 per kilogram. This black market value makes Rhino Horn more valuable than Gold, Platinum for Diamonds per gram. At CoP17 held in Johannesburg in October 2016 the international community voted overwhelmingly AGAINST the trade in Rhino Horn. The rhino horn farmers will be encouraging the South African government to apply to legalize the international trade in rhino horn at CITES CoP18 in Sri Lanka in 2019. Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa have proposed the lifting of the ban on the sale of their ivory stockpiles. Megan Carr VP Social Media GMFER
Petition to Sean Clarke, David Potts
End the sale of eggs from caged hens in Morrison's and Asda
Two out of the four major British supermarkets, Morrisons and Asda, still intend to sell eggs from caged hens without any obvious intent to change. The fact that Tesco, the biggest supermarket in Britain, have decided to stop selling caged hens’ eggs is proof that no matter how big the company, or how demanding the supply chain, the prospect of a free-range future is not impossible. Customer choice isn't only about what people want to see sold in supermarkets, it is equally about what customers do not want to see available. I know people worry about cost but the supermarkets can & must provide for people and families who require lower cost options by reaching a compromise that means products are affordable as well as sourced from a free range environment. Caged hens spend 72 weeks cramped in restrictive cages, unable to spread their wings or experience the outside world. After this time, many of the hens are barely feathered and in poor condition. The space available per hen is marginally larger than an A4 sheet of paper. Hens require more than the bare minimum commercial cages provide. They need space to roam, experience the outside world and show natural behaviour in a natural environment. The fact that hens can lay eggs which provide significant income for supermarkets, doesn’t justify forcing them into a life restricted to a cage. No animal deserves to live like this. The Tesco petition, proved that power is in the hands of us, the consumers and the customers of these stores. I believe that if enough people support this campaign, it is Asda and Morrisons responsibility to respond and reassess the eggs they sell. Please sign this petition and join a movement towards freedom for hens. Thank you, Lucy

End the sales of eggs from caged hens in Tesco
I have been campaigning to end caged hen farming through letter writing for several years now. I have five hens myself, two of them are ex- commercial barn hens and one of them once lived in commercial colony cages. They are amazing animals to be around. Keeping my own hens and knowing their past has made me determined to improve the way hens are kept commercially. I found out that Tesco is one of the few supermarkets that still sell eggs from caged hens. After trying to end this through my own letter writing I have come to find that the written opinions of one person creates little impact on a company like Tesco. However I believe that with the help of like-minded people on social media, we can make Tesco listen and create an impact. Food production affects everyone. Very few of us, however, know the truth behind the processes that leads to the food sold in our stores. A prime example of this is the egg productions industry. Lots of eggs sold to us in stores come from hens kept in "enriched cages". The conditions in these "enriched cages" are cramped and very restrictive. The hens never see the light of day or get to experience a natural lifestyle. In addition, the hens never get to experience the real outside world. Which I believe is an essential element for a hen to live a happy and healthy life. This methods of egg farming are cruel, unnatural and inhumane. Tesco is one of the biggest supermarket chains in the country. If it stopped selling cage eggs it would drastically reduce the number of hens who spend their lives in cages. It would also send a message to other supermarkets that this is an option that is realistic and achievable. Companies such as Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencers and Waitrose stopped selling eggs from caged hens years ago and new companies are listening to the public and realising that something has to change -- recently Mcdonald’s UK responded to a petition and agreed to stop using eggs from cage kept hens. Please sign this petition and take the first steps towards freedom for hens.

Irish Government: Stop Giving Millions of Euro to Cruel Greyhound Industry
Please sign our petition calling on the Irish Government to stop funding the cruel greyhound racing industry. The Irish Greyhound Board - which has control over track racing and hare coursing - received 16 million euro of hard-earned taxpayers' money in the latest budget (an increase of over a million euro compared to the previous year's figure), while other desperately needy sectors of Irish society saw cuts in grant aid. This despicable industry is responsible for the premature deaths of huge number of greyhounds, considered no longer fit to race on the track and those who don't make the grade. The average lifespan of a greyhound is 12-14 years, but Irish racing greyhounds can only expect to live 3-4 years. Also, many greyhounds are sent abroad to destinations that have little or no animal welfare protection legislation, where they are kept in appalling conditions and raced to death. It is also a corrupt industry with owners and trainers "openly admitting to doping" dogs as revealed on BBC and Channel 4 documentaries, while blooding (using hares, rabbits and small animals to keep the greyhounds keen) is an "open secret" in the industry. Given the ongoing fall in attendances at tracks, it is clear that the general public has little interest in greyhound racing. The Irish Government must stop wasting precious funds on this dying industry.

Petition to Michael Gove
Ban lion trophy hunting imports into the UK
The body parts of lions killed in gruesome hunts are being bought and imported into our country as ‘hunting trophies’. To hunt these beautiful animals for fun is inhumane and wrong - but it’s also contributing to the rapid decline of lion numbers. That’s why I’m calling on lion trophy hunting imports to be banned immediately. I lived and worked for two decades in several African countries to help the conservation of lions there and I’m now the director of Lion Aid. It pains me that their numbers continue to drop. The number of lions in Africa has decreased from over 200,000 to less than 15,000 within the past 50 years. Most of the ‘trophies’ are male lions. This has a disastrous knock on effect, pride structures are disrupted, reproduction almost grinds to a halt as cub survival is severely affected, and mortality among females increases as they attempt to protect their cubs during encounters with more and more displaced males. We must immediately stop our involvement in this cruel trade of lions killed for fun, like others around the world have. Australia, France and the Netherlands have already banned lion trophy imports. Why have we not yet joined them in doing so? In 2010 and 2015 promises were made by British MPs about introducing a ban, but years later nothing has happened. Every single day we delay makes it more and more likely that we push lions towards extinction. Please sign my petition calling on the UK to immediately ban imports of Lion trophies.
