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.

Petition to Mayor Bill de Blasio, Max Rose, Andrew M. Cuomo, Michael McMahon
Bring charges against the person who stabbed an opossum in the face in Staten Island.
On January 12th, 2020, an opossum was viciously stabbed in the eye by an unnamed assailant on Chesire Place, a residential street in Staten Island, N.Y. The opossum died the following day after desperate attempts by rehabilitators to save its life. Although the suspect was charged with assault for kicking a person that same night, no animal cruelty charges have been brought against him for this horrific and unprovoked attack. Please sign and share this petition asking Mayor Bill Deblasio, District Attorney Michael E. McMahon, Congressman Max Rose and Governor Andrew Cuomo to seek that animal cruelty charges be brought against this suspect and that the maximum sentence allowed under New York State statutes be sought in a court of law. After signing, please take a moment to contact the offices of all those below and respectfully ask for justice in this matter. Such cruelty against animals should not be tolerated in New York, or anywhere else. Please make this go viral! Opossums are non-aggressive and beneficial animals who do not harbor rabies and pose no threat to humans. Opossums benefit humans by eating many animals and insects that we consider pests, including ticks, rats and mice. Link to story below: WARNING!

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.
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.
