Petco Foundation Stop Promoting The Sale of Live Animals as Christmas Gifts
Petco Foundation Executive Director Susanne Kogut , please honor Petco's 2015 promise to the Animal Rescue Community and remove the 2016 Guinea Pig video promoting live animals as Christmas Gifts. The mother in this Petco Holiday ad nonchalantly ask if the father placed the guinea pig in a box being violently shaken by the son, this is sending a very bad message to the public and is not humorous.Please Stop encouraging parents to purchase small animals as Holiday Gifts. Small animals that are given as gifts are often neglected, or abandoned where they are killed or mistreated. Small animal shelters are currently full of domestic rabbits and guinea pigs as a result of being unwanted. This ad is currently being aired on the Hallmark Channel, Up TV and various sites on the Internet. Please see the Letter below for Petco Foundation contacts. Sign & Share this new Petition.
PetPartners Pet Insurance - Please Stop Supporting Animal Cruelty
Despite concerns and complaints from the voting public and despite the clarity of PetPartners Contest Rules, it appears that PetPartners Pet Insurance proudly states, supports and "understands" the Live Feeding, torture and killing of tame domestic rabbits, rats and other helpless animals at Big Cat Rescue Tampa and awards them the 2016 Animaltarian of the Year. PetPartners Quote:" Animaltarian" is about animal welfare and there are many different types of rescues that help a certain classification of animals. Big Cat Rescue focuses on all cats, domestic and wild. ...We have been advised and researched that rabbits and rats are fed to some animals that are being rehabilitated to be released back into the wild. While none of us at PetPartners like the idea we understand why it has to be done and hope that everyone will take that into consideration". End QuoteLive Feeding of one animal to another is not honored or practiced by ethical and professional rehabilitation centers. PetPartners dismissed professional letter references written by Rehab, Veterinarian and Department of Biology experts. Please Read the Facts and References on the Petition Letter Below:

Please Help Stop The Tippah County Fair Rabbit Scramble
I:19 minutes into this 2014 video you can see a rabbit to the left of the screen frantically kicking and flailing being dropped and picked up then ran with being dangled by the ears still struggling, you see more rabbits kicking and flailing from fear while being painfully dangled by their ears by children running and screaming, rabbits fighting for their life. You can see another violently being dropped resulting in a state of shock unable to move (most likely a result of the back being broken or spine injured). While grown adults do nothing smiling, encouraging and praising this behavior being taught to them. Teaching kids to commit animal abuse and cruelty is not acceptable and the adults should be charged for these heinous acts. 3 more videos just as disturbing can be viewed here.All 50 States Now Have Felony Animal Cruelty Provisions!PLEASE READ THE PETITION LETTER BELOW

Meat Rabbit Breeder Pulls Heartstrings Using a Crippled Baby Bunny to Receive Donations
This video may appear as a heartwarming rescue story however; rabbits on this farm live a short life and are slaughtered for food or sold. As this video spreads giving the impression of rescue, in reality this baby's family and cute little friends are or will be slaughtered and most of the 6 litters born - froze to death due to inappropriate housing and insufficient protection of the young which resulted in Wheels back/spine injury and him also being found half frozen.
