Petition to Maybelline, Robert Hiatt, L'Oréal
Maybelline Needs to Stop Animal Testing
Do you know the process of creating makeup products? Many makeup brands are using animal testing for their products. Maybelline is one of them. Makeup brands test on rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, rats, and dogs. There’s nothing in it for the animals but a life of suffering. Some animals are killed after the tests are done. I want Maybelline to end all animal testing and become a brand that is cruelty-free. Although L'Oreal has added a response to the petition indicating that they no longer animal test, they go on to contradict themselves in the last sentence. Allowing their products to be sold in China means that they have to allow for animal testing where the government deems it necessary. Being complicit in animal testing does not mean a company is cruelty-free. Maybelline continues to lack a cruelty-free rating by EthicalElephant. Maybelline is one of the top brands in the makeup industry- known for their mascara. But, many are not aware that they test on animals. Is making your eyes appear more fluttery worth an animal's life? Many people think animals are wild creatures and do not rights. But they do. Animals can procreate and that makes as human as possible. They are beautiful living organisms that have lived on earth before us. For the makeup industry, dogs are one of the main animals that undergo testing. Experiments specifically use beagles because they are closer to humans. Dogs should not have to go through this process. As a dog-owner this is one of the main reasons why I have switched to cruelty-free mascara. Dogs are meant to be a human’s best-friend and are not meant to be used for cosmetic experiments. Animals should have the right to live a life to the fullest without fearing that they might die the next day. Animals should not go through pain to benefit only the consumers’ appearance. If it is illegal to harm animals, why isn't animal testnig banned? Why should humans have the right to harm an innocent animal for cosmetic benefits? You can stop makeup brands like Maybelline from testing on animals by signing this petition.

Shut down of Ellis County SPCA
Ellis county SPCA has been mistreating animals for a long time with volunteer witness. Now there has been a animal who was sent there to get better but instead had to be taken to to the ER and was later pronounced dead. This petition is to shut the place down so no more animals are mistreated.
Petition to Peter Neronha, Rhode Island Attorney General
Sign if you believe this is animal abuse
For too long, Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training in Rhode Island has been engaging in and teaching dog training techniques that are scientifically unproven and harmful to dogs - oftentimes using tools that are banned in other countries such as electric shock collars (banned in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Germany, etc.) and choke collars (banned in New Zealand, Austria, Australia, Switzerland and more). He promotes a "technique" that includes hitting as punishment. In a recent video, Jeff can be seen hitting a dog causing it to cry. A clip can be found HERE. (See the Pet Professional Guild's statement on the use of shock collars HERE. See the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior's statement on the use of aversive training methods HERE.) Under Rhode Island state law, "Every owner, possessor, or person having the charge or custody of any animal, who...willfully, intentionally, maliciously, recklessly, and/or knowingly authorizes or permits that animal to be subjected to unnecessary torture, suffering, or cruelty of any kind; or who places, or causes to have placed, on any animal any substance that may produce irritation or pain...shall be punished for each offense in the manner provided in § 4-1-2." We are asking Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Neronha to investigate Solid K9 Training and these abusive practices including hitting, choking, shocking dogs. Our dogs deserve better. They deserve HUMANE and scientifically backed training approaches.

DEMAND JUSTICE FOR ARIZONA’S WILD HORSES
Who is killing the wild horses in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest? Since October 2018, 36 horses have been killed with 24 confirmed being shot. This includes stallions, pregnant mares and foals. Several horses were shot multiple times to inflict extreme agony. The US Forest Service supervisor in Heber has stated he doesn’t believe there is a risk to the general public despite many of these horses being killed near a main road. The US Forest Service has no plan to improve security in the forest where these horses have been killed. A man was seen shooting in the immediate vicinity of/at a herd of wild horses, but an ‘investigation’ determined he was just ‘target shooting’ at stumps. However, an eyewitness who was photographing the horses feared for her own safety because of the actions of the shooter. The eyewitness was able to take over 150 pictures and numerous videos of this incident. Why hasn’t the US Forest Service and local sheriff’s office made any progress in this investigation after reviewing these photos and videos? Why have they tried to discredit her as a witness? Some local residents have expressed fear not only for the horses, but for themselves! THIS MUST STOP!!! Rewards totaling $15,000 are being offered for the apprehension and conviction of the person(s) who is killing these beautiful animals. Please sign the petition. Let the US Forest Service and Sheriff Clouse know you stand with the Heber Wild Horses. Let the US Forest Service and Sheriff Clouse know you are watching and are asking for a thorough and transparent investigation. These are YOUR wild horses and YOUR national forest.

Petition to Disneyland, consumers, The Walt Disney Company
SAVE DISNEYLAND HORSES - SEND THEM TO A SANCTUARY
Disneyland is a progressive company which is why dated and senseless practices that come at the expense of sentient beings freedom and well being should be removed from the park. Disneyland makes horses pull trolleys with humans on the trolley, all for entertainment. They do not need to do so at all because the park has so many great forms of entertainment that do not exploit or use sentient beings. What is done is not in the best interest of the horses. The horses do not need to be bred into existence to be treated like slaves or to be used as a form of transportation. It is not essential at all. Right next to the horse pulled trolleys they have cars that transport you to other sections of the park. Those cars do not use or exploit anyone. There is a driver who willingly chooses to do the job and gets paid for it. Humans can consent to a job, non human animals cannot. They are forced and it is all they have been taught. I spoke to a cast member in the guest services section of the park. He told me that the horses were bred to pull heavy loads otherwise they get restless. The only reason why those horses are bred is to feed demand because some places such as Disneyland, are willing to obtain the horses to use them as slaves just how a circus would use animals for human entertainment. Breeders know there is a spot to fill which is why they do it. Their physical capabilities are not a justification for the exploitation or objectification of those sentient beings. Sanctuaries rescue several horses that come from different backgrounds some of which include horses that were forced to perform for human entertainment. Sanctuaries do everything in the best interest of the horses and do not force them to perform for human entertainment as it is not essential for their well being. Horses can get exercise and be happy without having to be in a loud and busy environment like Disneyland. Disneyland has huge loud crowds and other noises that are not ideal for any animal to be subjected to. Disneyland has countless kids that visit the park daily and by them having the horse drawn trolleys they are teaching kids that the use of sentient beings is essential or acceptable. Disneyland is called "the happiest place on earth", but where is the happiness for those horses? Regardless of the conditions that the horses live in, regardless of the treatment, they are still being objectified and viewed as a means of transportation which is totally not essential in modern society. The objectification opens doors for other forms of abuse which is why there are unfortunate events that occur to horses at other establishments that use horses for human entertainment. Disneyland can set an example to others by removing the horse drawn trolleys. Removing the horse drawn trolleys from the park would not harm anyone and like stated prior there are still several forms of entertainment the park has to offer that do not exploit sentient beings. Disneyland can send the horses they currently use for human entertainment, to sanctuaries. Sanctuaries do everything in the best interest of the animals and do not force them to perform for human entertainment.
Petition to Senator Lauren Book
STOP DECLAWING IN FLORIDA
Thank you, Senator Lauren Book for introducing SB 48, which would make non-therapeutic declawing illegal in Florida. Similar legislation has been enacted in New York, and the time is right to do the right thing by ending this inhumane and unnecessary practice. Declawing is amputation, whether performed by scalpel, clippers, or laser. We believe there is never a reason to declaw for non-therapeutic reasons (that is, unless surgery were necessary to treat animals' medical conditions). Declawing does not keep cats in homes, a fact acknowledged by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Eight cities in California - Los Angeles, San Francisco, West Hollywood, Burbank, Santa Monica, Berkeley, Beverly Hills, and Culver City - plus the City and County of Denver, Colorado have enacted declaw bans. Veterinarians in the seven Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Alberta, New Brunswick, Manitoba, and Newfoundland and Labrador have rejected declawing as unethical and inhumane. Statistics publicly available from the California cities having declaw bans indicate that the relinquishment of cats to shelters in those cities, in the years since the bans were enacted, has not increased - in fact, the number of cats dumped in shelters has DECREASED consistently in the ten to 18 years since the laws went into effect. There is no reason to declaw cats to protect human health. The NIH, CDC, US Public Health Service, the Infectious Diseases Society of America, and the Canadian Medical Association, all have specifically stated that the declawing is "not advised," even for the animals of persons who are severely immunocompromised, including those with HIV. This opinion is echoed in statements on declawing published by the AAHA and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). We hope such a bill would be successful and be a model for humane legislation in other states.
