STOP THE CANADA COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT: Don't Seal Their Fate.
WE RAISE OUR PAWS TO BRING FORTH URGENCY TO END THE CANADA COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT --- UNITED WE STAND FOR LIFE! As members of Canadian society, and an animal rights not-for-profit incorporation, we have always believed that Canada has represented itself as a progressive nation -- but such progression should not include sacrificing and inhumanely killing innocent life for making profit or products. I am speaking and bringing to your attention of Canada's Commercial Seal Hunt, or "Harvest" as even the Federal Fisheries Department has claimed it to be - a definition basically stating that this slaughter and treatment to be mere hunting and collection of commodities that can be used for humanity's own personal & profit making gain such as fur, seal oil (health supplements) and aphrodisiacs etc. It is truly a blemish upon the country, when its Government and Fisheries Department continues to defend the nature of such a dying industry, calling it humane and sustainable, and putting forth funding towards the inhumane and cruel suffering and death of innocent life ---- where the majority of innocent seals (by the hundreds of thousands) are either shot or clubbed in the head by instruments so that the pelt of such life is not damaged, and that the life suffering and dying are approximately 95 - 98% are 3 weeks to 3 months old. According to the Federal Fisheries Department Website -- The Three-Step Process, which also applies to harvesters with personal use licences is: Striking - The Seal Harvesters must shoot or strike animals on top of the cranium with either a firearm, club or "hakapik" - a multipurpose hunting tool -- wooden club with a hammer head (used to crush seal's skull) and a hook (used to drag carcass away) on the end. Checking - the harvesters must palpate both sides of the cranium (left and right) following striking, ensuring that the skull has been crushed -- this ensures the seal is irreversibly unconscious or dead. Bleeding - The harvester must bleed the animal by severing the two axillary arteries located beneath the front flippers and must allow the minimum of one minute to pass before skinning the animal -- bleeding ensure the seal is dead. The much awareness and outrage of not only individuals, but organizations and celebrity endorsements as well has made a huge impact against the commercial seal hunt --- even bringing upon bans from other countries against the imports of seal products have caused a collapse in sales. But even with such impacts, the Canadian Government still funds this industry, and has even increased quotas, despite the decline and collapse in such a market. We are truly appreciative and thankful to all those who have contributed and supported the efforts in raising awareness and impacts against this issue - Please continue the fight and urge the Canadian Government to finally abandon its efforts to save the commercial seal hunt.

The Restoration Of Animal Cruelty Information Back
ATTENTION ANIMAL ANGELS & INDIVIDUALS OF HUMANITY: It is truly a loss of words when we encounter certain reports and news that literally seems to throw us back into the shadows of a veil that we have fought dedicated and determined to remove ourselves from --- a veil that keeps us as the public from knowing truths that occur to innocent life behind closed doors. This loss of words came from the actions of the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) when they made the poor decision to remove thousands of reports and documentation from their website, which provided us as the public and consumers vital public interest and knowledge that not only furthered the fight for animal rights and welfare -- but also the protection of the public and consumers as well. These documentation and reports that were basically blacked out by the USDA, included such places as animal test labs, puppy mills and dog breeders, zoos and circuses and among many others --- which included animal facility inspections, enforcement , incidents of animal cruelty and inhumanity and other information that was collected in order to help assist in the agency's course to enforce the Animal Welfare Act. The USDA, according to many sources, claimed that their action for purging these crucial records was based on their commitment to being transparent.. a reason that not only created red flags and outrage within individuals & organizations, but it also raised many questions that he public etc are demanding answers for. This so-called "Commitment of Transparency" that the USDA stands by, literally goes against everything that they are suppose to represent and stand for -- their duties and responsibilities for innocent life and the protection and safety of such well-being and welfare. We must take into account that in the past animal cruelty and inhumanity within these industries and companies have been transparent from the public (tax payers) and consumers for too long --- and now with this strategy they have not only robbed us of vital public information and knocked us back steps, but they have basically given offenders a free pass and violated our right to freedom of knowledge and protection of consumers. We as humanity cannot ignore this situation, or stand by and allow ourselves to be veiled over again.. not when we have fought dedicated and determined and made such impact steps to get where we are today. We must not only fight for our rights as individuals and consumers -- but for the innocent life in need as well. We at Raise Ur Paw truly hope that we can count on your support and voices, so that together united we can make a difference.
Government of Ontario: Please Revoke Pit Bull Ban In Ontario
We at RAISE UR PAW, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit, is hoping to urge individuals around the world to please play their active roles in helping us urge the Ontario Government to revoke the BSL in which they passed 11 years ago, banning pitbulls and mixed breeds of their kind. In August of 2005, according to reports, the Ontario Government jumped on the BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) bandwagon, despite the protests, campaigns and the countless outcries of individuals & organizations within the province and around the World. The Government of Ontario seemed to have believed that turning towards the BSL ban was a possible solution in order to "keep society safe", but what they did not understand, or perhaps they did, was the number of inherent problems, issues and ineffectiveness that goes along with such legislation. It was the agreement of having this ban placed that literally signed and sealed the death sentence of thousands of innocent lives within animal shelters, humane societies, and punishing responsible owners and their "fur-children", while irresponsible owners who wanted a "dangerous dog", as the stereotypes call this breed, to choose another kind, which puts more innocent breeds upon the list, and get away with their treatment & the way they raise these dogs, because it is the innocent canines that suffer. Now such breeds have to be adopted outside the province, and according to sources, many of these breeds are brought into shelters and humane societies as strays, due to the strict rules and restrictions that the BSL places --- and those who do still reside within loving homes and families are now forced to be punished by wearing muzzles and discriminated against by society due to fear and ignorance, whether the breed is a threat or danger to society or not. It is imperative to realize that even though "Pitbull" breeds are the main viewpoint of the BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) any breed of dog can become a target of this discrimination, due to the fact that it is basically a bill that looks to ban or places restrictions in which are severe upon the owners of such specific breeds who have certain physical characteristics - whether or not the dog is a threat or problem within the community. This Discrimination Against Innocent Life Needs To Be Stopped - and the Governments need to understand that there are alternative measures that can be taken in order to find solution to incidents of "dog attacks" instead of sentencing & punishing this certain breed or other breeds to such strict, unfair treatments and in some cases death. We are confident and have hope that with your help and support we can achieve this goal and urge the Government to make the right choice by revoking the BSL ban within Ontario - for how can a Government who thinks about the "safety of society" ban an entire breed of innocent life and yet permit pedophiles, rapists, and murderers to live next door to us -- #RaiseUrPaw4Hope

Revoke Veterinarian License of Dr. Mahavir Singh Rekhi
We at Raise Ur Paw, A Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit, are requesting and urging individuals to please join us in petitioning to get the license of one Dr. Mahavir Singh Rekhi, who practices at Skyway Animal Hospital of Welland Avenue, St. Catherines, Ontario executed for his extreme actions of animal abuse and cruelty towards his voiceless patients. According to reliable sources and video evidence, Dr. Rekhi, has not only been accused of animal cruelty and abuse against innocent lives, but has also been suspended for ten months after being found guilty of professional misconduct by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO) this summer. Such actions of animal cruelty and abuse that Dr. Rekhi has been accused of is, choking a little dog to the point of defecation, picking up a feline under anesthetic, swinging the innocent life around and permitting its limp body to be slammed up against the side of a cupboard, and while clipping a dogs nails, used metal clippers to beat him over the snout due to the dog moving --- and who knows what other mistreatment other victims have endured by the hands of this doctor. Such a punishment for cruel actions, 10 month suspension and could be treating animals by December 2016, is merely just a slap on the wrist and statement of the lack of consequences that follows such inhumane and cruel behaviours towards innocent life. We are truly hoping that we can convince those of power to execute his license and stiffen the punishment received for these conducts, strengthening and enforcing the laws in which protect the welfare and well-being of innocent life. Dr. Rekhi needs to be shown as an example of 0 tolerance and acceptance of animal cruelty and abuse and that the consequences of such conducts and behaviours are maximum instead of mere slaps on the wrist. Please SIGN and RAISE UR PAW TODAY.
Ban Glue Traps: Stop The Inhumanity & Cruelty
We at Raise Ur Paw, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit, are coming to individuals worldwide, and to those of political power & influence, to unite against the inhumane and cruel devices known as GLUE TRAPS. Countless desperate individuals are unknowingly purchasing and setting up these traps and other devices in order to rid their homes, businesses, or other places of establishment of "little intruders", as some may call them, without knowledge or understanding the torturous and cruel process that goes along with the use of such mechanisms. It is extremely imperative and necessary to be aware of these GLUE TRAPS, to research and educate yourselves on the process of which these devices work, before you go out and purchase them from such places as hardware stores, department stores, some pet stores etc. -- because believe it or not, companies in which manufacture such traps will not inform you of the extremeties that these traps go to in order to rid your house etc of these little lives. GLUE TRAPS, are pans or trays that coated in an extremely sticky adhesive, which once in contact, the little animal becomes entrapped and immobilized -- causing extreme pain, suffering and injury due to fear, stress and trying to escape from the bounds, even though there is little chance of escape at this point. Such entrapment, and with the extreme stress and fear, have forced countless victims to chew threw their own limbs or cause sever injury in attempt to free themselves -- even larger animals who have become accidentally or purposely trapped, have managed to free themselves, but with consequences such as loss of fur, and skin in some cases. Did you know that it could take approximately 3-5 days for the little victim to perish... whether it be due to starvation, dehydration, even exhaustion... or succumb to the injuries that these traps inflicted upon them... Companies and industries who are producing and selling such devices, lead buyers to believe that this form of trapping is safe and effective -- but in all honesty, they are merely veiling the truth, keeping the consumers from knowing that such traps are not a quick and painless death for these innocent souls... we can no longer allow ourselves to be fooled. THE IMPACT WE ARE HOPING TO ACHIEVE: We are aiming for a complete ban on such cruel traps, to remove such inhumane and cruel devices off the shelves, and stop their production, manufacturing and selling. It is our determination to raise awareness and attention upon this issue, and raise much support and voices, through individuals and those of political influence, to make the stand and play their active role in helping succeed at this goal. The safety and protection of innocent life is imperative, and with much humane alternative out there, there should be no acceptance or tolerance of such cruel devices -- and it is up to us and individuals of the world to raise their paws and show that we are working united to make a difference.

Yulin Köpek Yeme Festivali'ni Durdurun
Çin'in Yulin şehrinde, her yıl Haziran ayında gerçekleşen Köpek Yeme Festivali'nin yasaklanması için yardımına ihtiyacımız var. Her yıl gerçekleşen festivalde, sayısız masum köpek öldürülüp yeniliyor. Dünyanın en vahşi festivali, Çin'de yıllardır süren bir gelenek. 2011 yılında tepkiler üzerine festival iptal edilmişti. Şimdi bu festivalin tamamen yasaklanmasını sağlamalıyız. Eğer festival yasaklanmazsa, her yıl insanoğlunun en iyi dostları köpeklerin binlercesi, acı çekecek, kesilecek, ölene kadar dövülecek, canlı canlı derileri yüzülecek. Zamanımız kısıtlı. Bu katliam bir daha gerçekleşmeden, seslerimizi birleştirip binlerce masum canı kurtarabiliriz. Şimdi hep beraber, kendini koruyamayan bu masum canların sesi olalım. Onları kurtarmak demek insanlığımızı da kurtarmak anlamına gelecek. Sen de patini kaldır ve imzanı ekle!
