Review firework rules to protect animals from injury and distress

Fireworks can cause serious distress to animals. They don’t only suffer psychologically, but also physically as many attempt to run away from, or hide from, the bangs. With extreme noise levels and people being able to let off fireworks any time of year, it’s difficult for those who care for animals to be able to put measures in place to protect their animals. This is why I’m calling for an urgent review of firework regulations to further restrict their use, as a step to preventing needless animal suffering. Around 40% of dogs are fearful of loud noises such as fireworks, meaning thousands of animals’ lives are made a misery by random fireworks, some starting in early October in the run up to Guy Fawkes night and continuing until the following January.   Every year the RSPCA receives hundreds of calls about the terrible effect fireworks are having on animals - not just dogs and cats, but other pets, livestock and wildlife. There are also frequent reports of horses harming themselves by crashing into stable doors and over fences. These poor animals don’t understand what is causing the loud bangs and bright flashes. The 2003 Fireworks Act and the 2004 Fireworks Regulations don’t do enough to protect animals. We urgently need a review of fireworks regulations that should consider: Restricting private use (not just purchase) of fireworks to traditional dates such as November 5th, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year and Diwali.  Reducing the maximum permitted decibels for private use fireworks from 120, which is above the human pain threshold, to 97. Requiring all public fireworks displays to be licensed. Requiring fireworks packaging to be labelled indicating the noise level, to allow consumer choice. In January 2018, the Government set up the Office for Product Safety and Standards after two Parliamentary debates, about the negative impact of fireworks, many months on, there has been little movement on this issue.   When it comes to fireworks, animals need protecting. Please sign my petition calling for an urgent review into firework regulations as a step to minimise distress in animals.

Petition to City of Delta, Mayor George Harvie, Councillor Dan Copeland, Councillor Alicia Guichon, Councillor Lois E. Jackson, Councillor Jeannie Kanakos, Councillor Dylan Kruger, Councillor Bruce McDonald

Dog Park Desperately Needed for Mackie Park Area in North Delta

Currently in North Delta there is a lack of fenced-in off-leash dog parks with proper facilities. The only one that we know of is a small area in a local park that is not accessible to a large number of North Delta pet owners. It's essential that dogs have proper exercise, off-leash, and in the parks we currently have in North Delta, that's not possible. A dog park in the Mackie Park area would give dog owners of our community somewhere to properly exercise and play with their dogs. Responsible dog owners would respect the dog park rules and all members of the community would welcome the move to providing a large secure dog park, and allowing the city parks to be free for the rest of the public. We present this petition to the Mayor & Council of Delta in the hope that local dog owners' views will be heard and we will have a safe and secure area to play with our dogs locally, with no need to drive to distant parks multiple times a day. Mayor Harvie has promised more Delta dog parks and has established one in the South Delta Tilbury Island area. The Mackie Park area would be an excellent additional area to help Mayor Harvie fulfill his promise.  https://www.peacearchnews.com/municipal-election/harvie-promises-dog-parks-for-delta/ https://talkingenergy.ca/topic/delta-opens-un-fur-gettable-new-agility-centre

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 Responsible department: Department for Environment Food, and Rural Affairs

.@DefraGovUK: "BAN THE BOLT" ABOLISH THE USE OF THE CAPTIVE BOLT GUN TO DESTROY GREYHOUNDS IN THE UK.

C.A.G.E.D North West 'Ban the Bolt' Campaign   [Petition Supported by Ricky Gervais and Jane Fallon] Each year an estimated 10,000 ex-racing greyhounds are 'unaccounted' for -- puppies that don’t make the grade, dogs that sustain injuries, are pregnant or unable to find homes, most are less than five years old.Many of these dogs are disposed of in the most 'economical' way - by bolt gun. Under existing UK legislation, any person can use a bolt gun to destroy a greyhound, if they are the legal owner. Attempted destruction of greyhounds by bolt has resulted in innocent dogs being left to suffer in agony for hours, before being found and taken to a veterinary surgery to be finally put to sleep by lethal injection.These dogs should at the very least be entitled to a humane death. Destruction of greyhounds should only be performed by use of intravenous euthanasia, administered by qualified veterinary surgeons. Following the controversial use of bolt guns by RSPCA inspectors a few years ago, the RSPCA requested the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) comment on their review of its 2004 euthanasia rules and guidelines. In April 2010 the RCVS announced that use of the captive bolt guns on dogs was inappropriate.Defra have the power to end this cruel practice so we are calling on them to immediately abolish the use of captive bolt guns to destroy greyhounds in the UK.For more information please click on the links below to read about Milton the greyhound and use of bolt gun in destruction. http://www.cagednw.co.uk/ban-the-bolt.html  http://www.cagednw.co.uk/greyhound-disposal.html http://www.greytexploitations.com/resources-and-reports/a-license-to-kill                http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-396015/The-killing-fieldsof-10-000-greyhounds-old-race.html
