Petition to xi, mao, Xi Jinping
To stop the cruelty of killing dogs in china for leather.
No dog deserves or needs to be brutally murdered like this! Dog skin produced in the slaughterhouses are used in products, labelled real leather, destined for export to the West, according to an animal rights group. Footage taken by People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) shows workers stood by a door at a slaughterhouse in the northern province of Hebei. As dogs are led through the door, the men kill them with a heavy stick. Sometimes it takes several blows to finish off the unwitting animals. Meathooks sway grimly in the foreground of the upsetting footage. PETA Asia's investigator saw workers peel the skin off dogs who were still alive. Please read more here at http://investigations.peta.org/china-dog-leather/ P.S : The petition created before has been expired, please sign in the petition for MAN'S BEST FRIEND

Go for Free-range Birds
Like you and me, birds and animals have the right to a decent life for the while that they live on the face of earth. None of us hold the right to make their life miserable for the sake of meat or egg consumption. Industrial livestock production has grown exponentially over the past years. Thousands of birds are kept in cramped spaces for the duration of their lives, many of whom reach the slaughterhouse too sick to even stand. Watch the video in the link here for horrific scenes shot at sites. (Warning: Not for the faint-hearted). I was shocked too! This doesn't necessarily have to be this way. Lets wake up and do our bit to goad the industry in the right direction. "Cage-free" and "Free-range" are popular labels used to indicate that the hens are provided more space than the typical battery cages where egg laying hens are rared. Cage-free means that hens are able to walk, spread their wings and lay their eggs in nests, vital natural behaviors denied to hens confined in cages. Free range denotes a method of farming husbandry where the animals/birds, for at least part of the day, can roam freely outdoors, rather than being confined in an enclosure for 24 hours each day. It is to be noted though, that in countries where the labels are popular, like the US, they are also widely misused by the industry. According to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), “no information on stocking density, the frequency or duration of how much outdoor access must be provided, nor the quality of the land accessible to the animals is defined” in the regulatory text and thus these are flexed to still maintain some of the old practices. This is especially true for those factory farms that rare tens of thousands of chickens. Hence the need for adequate regulation and supervision on the use of the labels by large farms. By virtue of what it implies, the cage-free egg movement has quickly spread throughout the world and a growing number of food companies are adopting cage-free egg purchasing policies. In India however this is yet to gain as much strength as say 'organic'. In 2016, McDonalds committed to a plan to switch to cage-free eggs in US, Canada and South Africa, a transition that could cost them big money. The important thing to note though is that once McDonalds had made the commitment nearly 200 competitors said they will do the same. The last major fast-food chain to announce cage-free was KFC that had committed to a timeline of end-2016, which is much ahead of McDonalds' 2025 plan. However for India (as also for the rest of the world), the announcements made in US mean that the large number of the popular McDonalds and KFC outlets continue to sell meat and eggs sourced from birds rared in battery cages, fed high doses of hormone, antibiotics and a diet that is largely uncontrolled. The lack of awareness about cage-free practices has slowed down the demand for a change in India. We should definitely say No to unhealthy food served to public by restaurant chains. This food may scale high in the tastiness index, but it will certainly prove harmful in the long run. The stress undergone by the chickens translate to harmful chemicals that in turn enter our body system while ingesting the burgers and muffins from the popular and fast-moving outlets spread across the country. Numerous researches done on broiler hens have established beyond doubt that hens rared in poultry farms suffer impact to their physiological functions at multiple levels, all caused by high concentrations of stress hormones in blood. See the link for one such article. As the most popular restaurant chains in India that consume chicken meat, we petition the McDonalds and KFC to lead the way...... by declaring that all their products sold in India come only from free-range, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, and humanely raised birds. This petition goes to Steve Easterbrook, CEO of McDonalds and his executive team, including Amit Jatia, Joint Venture Partner & Managing Director, McDonald’s India [West & South Region] and Smita Jatia, Chief Operating Officer, McDonald’s India [West & South]. So also it goes to Muktesh Pant, CEO of KFC, David C Novak, Chairman and CEO of Yum! brands (KFC is a subsidiary of Yum!), and Roger Eaton, COO of Yum! and President of KFC. Please note. This is not about vegetarianism or non vegetarianism. This is about doing our bit to save a living being from extreme suffering. A suffering that is totally avoidable! We the people petition the biggest corporate houses in the industry to take steps to discourage cages and thus contribute to a happier, healthier world.
Petition to United Nations
End animal experimentation
When certain restrictions are placed on humans they all react angrily and object, the question that rises here is that how are these rabbits and rats supposed to oppose the harsh treatment done on them such as deciding what they consume, what type of pain they endure and when they die? So all of us can sympathize with these animals however only a few raise their voices. Hence we are now providing you with a platform where you cannot only speak up against this injustice but can also give in your suggestions on how we can reduce and eventually completely finish animal testing.
Petition to H.E. Mr. Koro Bessho
United Nations Declare a World Dog Day
Even before I come to the main text, I urge people to sign and share this petition because if it succeeds, it will go a long way in ending cruelty to dogs. This petition impacts not just one dog but all the dogs of the world so please see the BIG picture. Despite protests all over the world, this year too China went ahead with its cruel dog eating festival. Unless a petition like this succeeds, cruelty to dogs will continue. A dog is truly man's best friend. Unconditional love is just one of the gifts dogs give us and teach us. The relationship between humans and dogs goes back to almost 32000 years. Dogs have helped humans not only as pets but also as guide dogs for the handicapped, police dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs, war dogs and much more. It is high time a truly global day (declared by the United Nations) is declared for them and hence I request as many people as possible to sign this petition and urge H.E Mr. Koro Bessho (the permanent ambassador of Japan to the UN) to place a proposal before the United Nations to declare Nov 10 (Hachiko's birthday) as the World Dog Day. Hachiko was one of the most loyal dogs to have lived and his story has been shown in films, the most recent one being 'Hachiko - A Dog's Tale' starring Richard Gere. Hachiko waited for his dead master at the railway station for almost ten years after the latter's death. Hachiko was a legendary dog and lived in Japan and hence it is only fit to have a Japanese representative place a proposal before the UN. The UN World Dog Day will not only create greater awareness and understanding about dogs and their rights but also reduce cruelty towards them such as in the Yulin Dog Meat festival and elsewhere. The success of this petition will force countries to strengthen dog protection laws (in fact animal protection laws in general) so it is important for all animal lovers (not just dog lovers) to sign this petition. The World Dog Day declared by the UN will be at par with other important days such as the Labor Day, Women's Day, etc. Dogs (in fact all animals) will get greater respectability not just from dog lovers but also from those who do not like dogs or are indifferent to them. This will be the first time that the United Nations will have dedicated a day for a particular animal. No animal lover can deny that of all animals, dogs truly deserve this honor. I urge as many people as possible from different countries to sign this petition. PS - Some countries such as the US do have their National Dog Days, however those 'days' are not truly global but are country specific only. The fact is, unless a day has been declared by the United Nations (such Labor/Women's,etc.) it is not truly global, hence, signing this petition is important. The photo in the petition is of the statue of Hachiko in front of the train station of Shibuya, Tokyo, where he waited for ten years for his master. People can be seen paying homage to this wonderful and loyal dog.

Save our homeless furry friends in Uttarakhand.
Petition made by the animal lovers and activists including youngsters of Uttarakhand, India, against a very vague ruling by the High Court of Uttarakhand it is as follows-Uttarakhand high court on Thursday directed the state government to ensure there are no stray dogs on the roads of the Himalayan state within a period of six months starting from month of July 2018The high court also noted that the state government may consider framing a law to kill “dangerous stray dogs”.The PIL (Public interest litigation} filed by an advocate highlighted the issue of increasing dog menace in the state. It said in the past five years, over 11,000 dog bite cases have been reported in a tourist place ‘Nainital’ itself which is false and baseless made up story.First of all who will determine 11000 bites in 5 years in Nainital I.e around 3500 bites in one year !!! Is it not a huge amount of bites!!! Do u have the evidence following bites records ...After all the grieving people would have gone to govt hospitals and got injections fir bites...so where are the records of 11000 bites in five years !!! ....This is all made up news made by dog haters who are concerned with tourism and concerning business people who don't want dogs around them !! The court directed the chief secretary to issue necessary directions to all authorities concerned to take appropriate steps for checking the dog menace in their respective areas. The court also made it clear that the directions issued by the chief secretary will be binding on all authorities, including municipal bodies and other local bodies. It was further said by the High Court that the dogs who are homeless should not be seen on roads within six months, that they should be adopted by charitable organizations. The High Court further said that a law be framed to kill the stray dogs who are on roads can be further killed if dangerous! That those having objections can take them home! The high court said the non-compliance of the directions issued by the chief secretary to the local authorities will be treated as a contempt of court.This is obviously a very serious matter, and all the dog lovers animal activists,NGOs along with should unite and stop this cruel ruling of “killing” stray dogs just because they have grown in number. Dogs are man’s bestfriend” and I don’t think this is a way to treat our bestfriendHonourable Supreme court of our country India has protected stray dogs saying no one can kill or maim them . It is simply not understood why any high court will go against supreme court , also shows inhumane behaviour while asking the state to make a rule to killing 'dangerous dogs' ...A dog hater will find any dog dangerous !!! So all strays left out without shelter should be killed ??? Unless they are not rabied they have a right to live as per Hon Supreme CourtDogs being man's best friend is also a guard of the colonies , a saviour in army , a sniffer to detect bombs and save lives in airports and tourist places , even stray dogs are being admitted and trained in army ...there are dogs who relieve serious patients in hospitals , a blind man's companion , a lone person's joy , babies delight !!!Dog haters can spoil everything and would want the best friend of human to die.So please sign the petition and join with us in the movement against killing of the wonderful man's best companion. This petition would be presented to all officials who matter and can save our dogs of Uttarakhand!
Petition to Mr. RATNAKAR and the TRUSTEES, The Ashram Officers
Sai Baba Ashram: STOP NOW THE KILLING OF DOGS BY POISONING in Puttaparthi
In the ashram of the late Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba in Puttaparthi, Andra Pradesh, India, the well-known family of 9 dogs, a mother with her pups of different ages, has been completely exterminated by poisoning. A first wave of killings happened on Easter day (30 March 2013) and took the life of 7 of them, two could be treated in hospital and saved in extremis. A recent new wave of poisoning occured on 5th May 2013 which killed also the two surviving dogs. They were all young, kind, loving dogs, sterilized, vaccinated against rabies, born in the ashram, living peacefully and permanently there for many years, loved and cared by many animal lovers and above all they were dear friends to all of us. The joy they were giving to all can be seen in the photo album dedicated to these innocent victims ( http://sdrv.ms/16hJ795 ). Many other dogs in the ashram which are also all castrated and vaccinated by the Karuna Society are also often mistreated, some are strangely disappearing and the others are still in danger of being soon poisoned if the culprits of this deplorable killing are not exposed by a proper, legal and objective investigation. A complete and detailled unfolding of the situation and the recent events is available at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/saibabaofindia/message/26674 A flow of personal complaints from many all around the world after the first poisoning remained unheeded by the authorities of the ashram. Now we plead the authorities to listen with compassion to the cries of those divine innocent creatures’ sufferings and of all our bleeding hearts after knowing about such cruelty against the animal kingdom. We pray them to take all initiatives to solve the case and to stop the repeated incidents of dogs poisoning and to promote their future protection and welfare e.g. by launching a SAI ANIMAL WELFARE PROJECT. OUR MIGHT as caring human beings IS OUR LOVE AND OUR DEVOTION TO RIGHT ACTION AND NON-VIOLENCE towards all living beings including the animals. EACH VOICE OF THE HEART COUNTS. So please join us in this movement of Love by signing this international SAI DOGS PETITION and by raising awareness around you, using Facebook and Twitter and informing all your friends and family members about this international action to save our friends.

Petition to Government of India, Animal Aid Unlimited
STOP KILLING DOGS
By signing the petition you support the following: Animal torture should remain illegal in all forms and in all countries. The government of INDIA has to ensure that Animal Protection Laws are followed in their country. Dogs are people's companions and helpers, not livestock for meat. Dog farms, raising dogs for food and killing them for meat should be made illegal. Selling dog meat in restaurants has to be banned.
