Petition to Scottish Government, British government, UK Parliament, David Linden MP

Change the law surrounding car accidents involving cats.

There are an estimated 8 million pet cats in the UK currently. Cats are the 2nd most popular pet to us in the UK, after dogs. So how come cats get the raw end of the deal when it comes to reporting car accidents? My oldest cat, Leo, was hit by a passing car whilst he was outside. The car sped away and we were only informed by a neighbour who had witnessed it. Luckily, Leo was alright. I was so angry that the driver drove away without so much as trying to find out who owned him or alerting someone about it. Upon researching I found out that cats aren’t covered by the same law as other animals including cattle and ‘man’s best friend’ dogs. I love both animals very dearly - but who’s to say that one life is to be treated differently to another. The resoning is that cats are ‘free to roam’ therefore it’s their own fault and the driver shouldn’t have to report it. So how come humans who are also ‘free to roam’ are reported when they are knocked down? Cats and humans are obviously not the same but I can tell you that I love my pets more than I love a lot of people. So why shouldn’t someone have to report hurting them?  I believe it is unjust and unfair that it’s legal to hit and run a cat and not report it. Please help me make a difference by signing my petition. Together we can help our furry feline friends get the justice they deserve.

Petition to UK Parliament

BAN THE HUTCH!

Would you keep a cat or a dog in a hutch? Cottontails believes it is equally cruel to cage companion rabbits and that they deserve a better life. The average hutch on sale in pet shops measures just 90cm X 30cm X 30cm. This means the rabbit cannot stand up or take a few hops and has to lie in her urine and droppings. There is no room for toys, a litter tray or a companion. The hutches are cheaply made (though not cheap to buy) and offer little protection from predators and the elements. Rabbit Habitats Rabbits should have a living area of at least 2m X 3m, for example a spare room or part of a room (you can use a pet gate/room dividers to limit the space). In addition they should have access to a larger exercise area where they can RUN! e.g. another part of the house or a secure pen in the garden (in the daytime with supervision). Please Sign our Petition! We are seeking to ban the sale and use of rabbit hutches and cages. Even the biggest ones barely allow a pair of rabbits to turn around once you've furnished them with food and water bowls, hay, straw, litter tray, bed, toys, etc. And as long and they’re available to buy, they will be used to confine rabbits, guinea pigs and other animals, often for their whole lives. Please help us give them a better quality of life by signing our petition and spreading the word. Thank you. Need More Info? Cottontails has been promoting keeping rabbits completely free-range ever since it was founded in 1993. Our first rabbit Carolina and later our foster bunnies taught us that a home is not a hutch or an indoor cage. Please visit our website at bunny.org.uk for lots of advice on rabbit care, from housing to bonding rabbits and finding a rabbit shelter near you.

Petition to Xi Jinping, Liu Xiaoming, International Animal Rescue, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

END THE YULIN DOG EATING FESTIVAL IN CHINA!

STOP! The Yulin dog eating festival! Dogs are innocent animals, that deserve love, attention, care, and a family. First, dogs are stolen from owners, taken from puppy farms or taken from the streets as strays, next they are crammed into cages that are way too small for the amount of dogs inside, click this link to see: https://goo.gl/images/wnGjrN , which often twist their limbs into extremely uncomfortable positions and have to stay there for several hours. Once they finally reach their destination, then, like some sort of torture the dogs are boiled, beaten, strangled, electrocuted, burnt and skinned ALIVE! They think the dog tastes better and will be more tender if it has adrenaline! After the horrendous ordeal the visitors happily eat the dogs. Animal cruelty is not a crime in China! When a dog just bites a human, it usually gets euthanised, or, in China there was a policeman that beat a dog to death in public! Here is the link to that: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5228433/Golden-retriever-dies-beaten-policeman.html They eat dog meat because they believe that if you eat dog meat it gives the men more sexual stamina and that it will keep them cool during the summer and it will apparently ward off evil spirits. I just can’t beleive that these people could torture the animals that help with the police, help disabled people, support and love each family they have, support and love children if they have been abused and many more.   If a human tortures a dog in China, nothing happens! PUT AN END TO THIS MADNESS!   If you really want to see how China really treats man’s best friend, contact me on drongolian1@outlook.com and I will send you the link as soon as I can. I’m warning you that the video is extremely graphic and upsetting.
