Petition to the Animal Welfare Service from Belgium

Save Pippie from puppy mill practices

Every animal deserves protection! That’s why we have started this petition in the hope of helping cat Pippie. Who is Pippie?Unfortunately, Pippie is not an ordinary house cat that enjoys a warm and soft basket. Pippie lives in a dirty box in the village Rijkevorsel in Belgium and she is used for breeding purposes. Medical care is missing for her and for every litter of kittens she brings to the world. Pippies kittens are sold for a lot of money without complying with the law for cat and kitten adoption imposed here in Belgium – that is if the kittens survive the first weeks of their lives. Unhealthy kittens ‘just disappear’ … What can you do to help Pippie?Up to now notifications have been reported to both the Belgian Animal Welfare Service and the Belgian police department without any success as both services find one cat not worth the trouble. We are now trying to save Pippie by collecting signatures. By bringing Pippies case under the attention of a broad public we hope to finally be able to give this brave little mother the very much needed help she deserves. And hopefully also for all other cats that are used for gain of wealth. Every animal deserves respect! What we hope to achieve with your help?With this petition we request at the Belgian Animal Welfare Service:– That a new home gets searched for Pippie.– That Pippie gets finally sterilized.– That Pippie and her kittens get normal medical care.– That Pippies new litter of kittens finds a new home according to the Belgian law for adoption.– That, if it appears that the current owners are willingly refusing their animals normal care, they are forbidden to keep pets from here on out. For those interested: updates and more background information will be made available here

TEXAS POLITICIANS: STOP PET STORES FROM "SELLING" PUPPIES!

"PUPPY MILL DEFINITION: an establishment that breeds puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis and in conditions regarded as inhumane." -Google THIS PETITION IS IN HONOR OF PUPPY MILL AWARENESS MONTH: SEPTEMBER. PUPPY MILLS ARE CRUEL AND INHUMANE. DOGS THAT STAY IN PUPPY MILLS ARE PRISONERS OF GREED, SUFFERING IN MISERY. AS LONG AS THERE IS A PROFIT IN IT, THESE PUPPY MILLS WILL NEVER STOP. IT'S NO SECRET, TEXAS IS OVERRUN AND OVERWHELMED WITH PETS NEEDING HOMES. STRAY AND HOMELESS PETS RUN AROUND IN ABUNDANCE. SHELTERS ARE OVERFLOWING. ANIMAL RESCUES ARE OVERWHELMED AND UNDER FUNDED. WE ARE TIRED OF POLITICIANS AND LEADERS LOOKING THE OTHER WAY.  BANNING PUPPY MILLS would save TAXPAYERS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS A YEAR AND PROVIDES HOMES TO THOUSANDS OF ADOPTABLE PETS FROM KILL SHELTERS.  PUPPY MILLS ARE ALL ABOUT PROFIT. THAT MEANS NO VET CARE AND NO LOVE. MANY OF THESE PETS SUFFER CONDITIONS LIKE PARVO AND WORMS. MANY PUPPY MILLS HAVE LITTLE TO NO OVERSIGHT. THEIR LIFE IS NOTHING BUT PAIN AND LITTER AFTER LITTER OF PUPPIES. PUPPY MILLS= ANIMAL CRUELTY.  MOST PUPPIES SOLD IN PET STORES COME FROM PUPPY MILLS OR BACKYARD BREEDERS. WE ASK OUR POLITICIANS TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST PUPPY MILLS. STOP PUPPY SALES AT PET STORES IN TEXAS OR AT LEAST STRICTLY LIMIT THEM WITH STRONGLY ENFORCED GUIDELINES AND STANDARDS. WE ALSO ASK OUT POLITICIANS TO OFFER PET STORES INCENTIVES TO FEATURE ADOPTABLE PETS FROM ANIMAL SHELTERS/RESCUES. SHOW TEXAS YOU CARE ABOUT TEXAS ANIMALS. TEXAS NEEDS BETTER, TOUGHER LAWS THAT PROTECT ANIMALS FROM ABUSE AND OVERBREEDING.  WE ASK THAT: 1.    TEXAS POLITICIANS ban the sale of commercially raised DOGS, CATS and rabbits in pet stores and flea markets across the state. Sign into effect a law requiring pet stores to work with animal shelters or rescue operations if they want to adopt out dogs, cats or rabbits. 2.     OFFER PET STORES INCENTIVES TO FEATURE ADOPTABLE PETS FROM ANIMAL SHELTERS/RESCUES .  3.  WHEN PUPPY MILL DOGS ARE UNABLE TO PRODUCE LITTERS ANYMORE, MANY BREEDERS DUMP or KILL/DISPOSE THESE DOGS TO QUICKLY GET RID OF THEM. MAKE THIS ILLEGAL, WITH STRONG PENALTIES FOR DUMPING or Injuring/killing ANIMALS. 4. Allow a short grace period for pets currently in Pet Stores, to avoid being dumped or inhumanely disposed of.  Stopping pet stores from selling pets is a necessary step towards "no kill policy" .  Our eleceted leaders need to work with rescue(s) to find ways to stop cruel puppy mills and humanely handle the animal overpopulation issues in Texas.  We hope and pray, for the sake of the ANIMALS in the great state of TEXAS, that our leaders will show action on this subject IMMEDIATELY- as SO MANY are waiting for HELP and SUFFERING right now.  TELL GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT PET STORES AND PUPPY MILLS: https://gov.texas.gov/apps/contact/opinion.aspx EMAIL GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT: Info@GregAbbott.com CALL GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT: (512) 463-2000
