Justice for Chunky - stop people who abuse animals from owning ever again
This petition is for Chunky the Chihuahua who was attacked for hours in what the RSPCA called one of the most disturbing cases of animal abuse they had ever seen. Chunky was, over a period of hours, beaten and drugged, his neck was broken, he was set on fire and finally he was dumped and left for dead. Despite serious injury, and against all odds, Chunky lived. The people who committed this abuse were only banned from keeping animals for five years. As an animal lover, who once owned a dog just like Chunky, I found this story highly upsetting. What shocked me is that these abusers and others like them will be able to own an animal again one day. There’s nothing to prevent them doing this again. I'm asking that anyone who abuses animals, regardless of their age, be placed on an Animal Cruelty Register which would follow them for life. In some states in the US they already have animal abuse registries. If this had happened in New York these abusers would have to sign onto an animal abuse list that would prevent them from ownership of animals. The UK need to introduce a similar law. A five year ban is not sufficient-- it is hard to implement in practice and why do we assume abusers attitudes will have changed after a few years? Our legal system should have an animal abuse list so that we are aware of people who have mistreated animals. Please sign this petition for an animal abuse register. Let's get justice for dogs like Chunky.

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 email@example.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.

Help me to change the law for Cats involved in RTA's
In the U.K. It is against the law to not take a dog that's been involved in a RTA to the vets but it is not the law to take cats to the vets or to report it following a RTA! Why??! A cat is a much of a loved pet as a dog is so the same rules should apply. Over 230,000 cats are run over every year and the person who runs them over has no responsibility to that animal at all. In 2015 the Telegraph attempted to change the law with a petition but only 12,000 people signed it meaning it never went through, if even half of the 230,000 people who had a cat ran over last year signed them there's a chance the law would be changed so please sign and share and help stop the hurt that people go through when their pet doesn't come home and they've no idea why!

A PETITION TO SAVE OUR DOG, TANK.
An incident occurred at the Olatunji’s residence on the 23rd of July 2018 whereby their neighbour came on to their property to pick up her parcel that they had collected on her behalf. The neighbour had known Tank since he was 10 weeks old. Tank ran out to play with the her but she reacted aggressively by shouting, screaming and hitting the dog constantly with the parcel. Due to her hitting their dog, he sustained cuts and bruises to his face and this resulted in Tank nipping her once. She later called the Police called and requested that the dog should be euthanised. They took their dog to their local kennel to calm him down as he was stressed, they also put a few things in place on their property and arranged to do some training so that such incident would not occur again. The Police were aware of what they had put in place including a non-refundable 50% deposit in excess of £2000. They were hoping to collect Tank on Monday the 30th of July 2018 from the Kennel. The Police came to their house on Saturday the 28th of July asking them to sign an Acceptable Dog Behaviour Contract. After they had signed the contract, it was later drawn to their attention that the Police had already seized their dog so they could lose their training deposit and did not informed them that their dog had been seized. The Police also lied to them in seizing the dog. There is plenty of evidence on the YouTube channel of Deji showing the dogs temperament and nature. Please help us in getting back this kind, friendly and loving family dog. He is dearly missed, it saddens us all.

A HUTCH IS NOT A HOME
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 end 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 - if you're on social media, please use #HappyBunnies. 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.

Link Pet Registries Australia wide to prevent theft and loss.
The NSW Pet Registry is not linked to any of the 5 other national pet databases. This means someone could steal your pet and bring it to (or from) NSW and their microchips wouldn’t scan in their new location. With any luck, your pet would end up in a new loving home. But equally, it could end up used as a fighting dog, or as bait, or sold into a puppy mill, or for any number of other awful scenarios. But no matter what, you’d be left heartbroken. A real life example… In 2013, whilst living in Melbourne, my girlfriend and I rescued the two most amazing dogs in the world. A Husky named Cali and a Labrador named Snickers. I registered them and paid the adoption fees, and they came to live with me for good. In 2015, life took us to Sydney. But a year later, my ex and I split up. At first we shared the dogs, but then my ex changed her mind and I haven’t seen them in 10 months and counting. I’m now facing legal bills in the tens of thousands to win them back through the courts, and it’s something that could have been avoided. You might be wondering how this happened, since I paid for them and they’re registered to me... Well, just a few days after we split up, my ex went down to the local council and re-registered the dogs in her name. They already had microchips with my information, but the NSW registry doesn’t link to any other database in Australia. It’s the only one that doesn’t. So when their chips failed to return any information, she simply pretended they had never been registered before, and that I didn’t exist, even though both dogs had been officially mine throughout the rest of Australia since 2013. She wasn’t even asked for a change of ownership form. It was negligent of the council not to ask why an 8 and a 5 year old dog had chips that had “not been activated", but moreover it’s a failure of the system that their chips didn’t scan correctly. This is exactly what micro chipping is meant to protect against! How is it possible that the registries are not linked? Please sign this petition to have Pet Registries (in particular the NSW Pet Register) linked Australia wide effective immediately. Protect your pets from loss/theft.

End the sales of eggs from caged hens in Tesco
I have been campaigning to end caged hen farming through letter writing for several years now. I have five hens myself, two of them are ex- commercial barn hens and one of them once lived in commercial colony cages. They are amazing animals to be around. Keeping my own hens and knowing their past has made me determined to improve the way hens are kept commercially. I found out that Tesco is one of the few supermarkets that still sell eggs from caged hens. After trying to end this through my own letter writing I have come to find that the written opinions of one person creates little impact on a company like Tesco. However I believe that with the help of like-minded people on social media, we can make Tesco listen and create an impact. Food production affects everyone. Very few of us, however, know the truth behind the processes that leads to the food sold in our stores. A prime example of this is the egg productions industry. Lots of eggs sold to us in stores come from hens kept in "enriched cages". The conditions in these "enriched cages" are cramped and very restrictive. The hens never see the light of day or get to experience a natural lifestyle. In addition, the hens never get to experience the real outside world. Which I believe is an essential element for a hen to live a happy and healthy life. This methods of egg farming are cruel, unnatural and inhumane. Tesco is one of the biggest supermarket chains in the country. If it stopped selling cage eggs it would drastically reduce the number of hens who spend their lives in cages. It would also send a message to other supermarkets that this is an option that is realistic and achievable. Companies such as Sainsbury’s, Marks & Spencers and Waitrose stopped selling eggs from caged hens years ago and new companies are listening to the public and realising that something has to change -- recently Mcdonald’s UK responded to a petition and agreed to stop using eggs from cage kept hens. Please sign this petition and take the first steps towards freedom for hens.

Ban domestication of the Lesser Anteater
The Tamandua Tetradactyla/ lesser anteater is a wild animal which many people are now deciding to keep as pets. This is a form of animal abuse as he anteater is not an animal suited to domestication; they need a wild environment, solitude and a mix of forestation, bodies of water and access to insect nests. The claws of a Tamandua tetradactyla are so thick and sharp that they could easily kill a human, many people choose to keep them as pets. They require a high level of care and access to a burrow. Due to their arboreal life style, they need to be able to climb trees of various heights and diameters for adequate exercise and muscle development. Their 33⁰c body temperature is unusually low for a mammal and so they require cold living conditions in captivity to prevent heat stroke. All of these things paired with the large number of insects they feed on per day makes them animals which are far better suited to being left alone in the wild.
