Ban The Sale Of Mink Eyelashes In Australia
Ban the sale and importation of mink eyelashes in Australia.Mink eyelashes have become more and more popular in the recent years, with celebrity endorsements and cheap prices. They give the illusion of longer fuller lashes but it isn't worth the abuse and torture of these beautiful animals.There is no way to get "cruelty free" mink fur as these poor animals are kept on cruel fur farms. Usually in individual cages, as minks are solitary animals and can become aggressive. Especially when cramped in such a small space.As anyone who has looked into the mink fur industry will know, minks are killed when their winter coats come in, so the fur taken for eyelashes would be taken just before or after the death of the mink.Mink eyelashes are an unnecessary product. Especially when there are hundreds of other cruelty free synthetic brands available that work just as good, if not better. This petition is based on a petition by Shannen Stanley called "Ban the sale of mink eyelashes in the UK”: https://www.change.org/p/uk-parliament-ban-the-sale-of-mink-eyelashes-in-the-uk
Petition to The New Zealand Government
Join SPCA's fight to save innocent lives
The New Zealand Government has announced an action plan that will see animal shelters like the SPCA banned from re-homing dogs they see as "menacing". Thousands of innocent lives are at risk. What is going to happen to all the dogs that are guilty of nothing else than their visual appearance? By making it illegal for animal shelters to re-home dogs of certain breeds, the Government are effectively condemning them to die. Dogs will be judged - not on their character or temperament - but on how they look. Their life will literally be determined by the shape of their face, or the size of their nose, or the colour of their eyes. Not by how much they love their family, or playing with their friends at the beach, or how they would do anything for a chin scratch. The SPCA believes that each individual dog should be judged based on temperament and behaviour, not breed. This is why each dog re-homed by the SPCA undergoes health and behaviour assessments. This is not right. We won't stand by and allow innocent lives to be lost. Please stand with us. Will you join our fight to stop the Government and help save these innocent lives? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This law change is part of an action plan the Government has rolled out in an attempt to reduce dog bites in our communities. But we know that trying to fix this complex problem by killing thousands of dogs guilty of nothing but the way the look will not work. How do we know this? Breed specific legislation has categorically been proven in studies worldwide not to reduce dog bites Many countries - including our Australian neighbours - are repealing their breed specific legislation because this does not work We believe responsible dog ownership and public education are key to making positive change in our community Animal lovers - please tell the Government the lives of these innocent dogs matter. We can't do this without you.

Legislate to end the cruel live export trade
As my elected representative I urge you to call for immediate action to prevent any more animals from suffering as a result of live exports. The cruelty inflicted on Australian cattle in Gaza shown on ABC’s Lateline on 22/10/14 was horrific, yet it comes almost 12 months after similar shocking scenes from Gaza were first reported. I ask you, how was this allowed to happen? I, along with thousands of other Australians, was led to believe that the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System (ESCAS) would protect our animals from such suffering – instead the system has completely failed them. Please do what you can to ensure there is an immediate investigation into this incident and help bring an end to these repeated scenes of suffering. A phase-out of live exports not only makes sense from an animal welfare perspective but also from an economic one. Meat exports are worth nine times more than the live export trade: over 93% of livestock raised in Australia are slaughtered here. The vast majority of Australian farmers have nothing to do with the live export trade: only 4% of sheep producers and 12% of Northern cattle producers rely on it as their main source of income. Transitioning these producers from high- risk live exports to the more stable meat export trade would boost economic opportunities in rural and regional communities and help safeguard Australia’s clean green image. Australian animals deserve protection. This cruelty should not, and does not, have to continue. It’s time for serious steps to be taken to protect Australian farmers and ensure the welfare of our animals by implementing a phase-out of this cruel and unnecessary industry and replacing it with a meat-only trade. I look forward to your response.

Change in punishments for animal abuse in the ACT
The RSPCA does an amazing job keeping animals safe, and removing them from abusive homes. However the punishments for abusing animals in the ACT (and Australia) are very light. Often a small fine and a short ban on owning animals. One woman had 156 counts of animal abuse and was fined $1000. She got good behaviour and a ban on owning small animals. This woman had chickens, rabbits, Guinea pigs, ferrets, all living in small cages with no water and had dead decomposing animals in the cages with them. Yet she received no gaol time. Another woman was charged just $200 and a lifetime animal ownership ban after she left a dog in her care to die a slow and inhumane death in her backyard. The dog had multiple organ failure and renal failure. This isn't good enough. These people need to see gaol time, or some real fines to say the least! Please sign if you'd like to see some real change for animal welfare.

STOP PUPPY FARMING
Puppy farms, also known as puppy factories or puppy mills, are intense breeding facilities that churn out puppy litters for profit, often at the expense of the health and wellbeing of the animals. Sadly, it's a lucrative business in Australia, and one that raises serious welfare concerns. According to the RSPCA, a puppy-farming environment where dogs can be caged in conditions similar to those of battery hens, can cause long-term health and behavioural problems in breeding dogs and their puppies, due to: extreme confinement – in some cases breeding animals may never be allowed out of their cage to exercise, play, socialise, have companionship or even to go to the toiletinadequate veterinary care and general care (grooming and parasite control)unhygienic living conditionsinadequate and overcrowded housing conditions. This is not funny. We need to stop it NOW.

Save Australian Wildlife, Like Koalas & Their Habitats! #StopLandClearing #SaveTrees
I use to be a Wildlife Carer, Aussie Wildlife are the most important thing in My Life! Koalas and other Wildlife are very important to Australian Image, more so than New Train Lines, Highways or Mines! Koala should be named "Australian Treasure", like The Giant Panda is to China! Australians should care about our Unique Wildlife, before they all become Extinct! That includes Kangaroos! They should not be culled as Pest or killed for Food or Fur. Make a Law to Protect Wildlife Habitat all over Australia and over rule State Laws!
Petition to Malcolm Turnbull
Make puppy farming illegal
Puppy Farming should be Illegal After my investigation about puppy farms, I think that puppy farming should be illegal because the dogs aren’t treated well and people aren’t caring about the dogs and puppies’ health. Everybody cares about their own health, but in puppy farms, there’s nobody looking after these dog’s health. All their life is spent making puppies. When the puppies get a bit older, they get sold to the pet shop or as soon as they are old enough, they get made to produce babies all the time like their parent. Stop this ill treatment now, sign this petition for these poor dogs, give them their freedom.
