Dona K. Burke: Save the carriage horses from their slave drivers in Helen, GA!! | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
The Alpine Village of Helen, GA is supposed to be a wonderful, quaint fairytale of a town. But as with any fairytale, there are always monsters. In this case, those monsters are the slave drivers of Alpine Carriage Company and every other horse-drawn carriage company in this town. The horses are worked in the heat and humidity from morning to night. I have personally seen the same horses sweating to death in the morning as I have in the afternoon and night. They work their horses despite the tem

Government Body, Government official, Danish Government: Stop the whale slaughter in Faroe Islands

Government Body, Government official, Danish Government: Stop the whale slaughter in Faroe Islands | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
I just wish to take a stand to attempt to stop the senseless slaughter of hundreds of pilot whales that is occurring in The Faroe Island regions.
This occurs annually and sometimes more often and is deemed accepted by the locals and the apparent 'cultural' aspect of the act.
I strongly believe that any form of culture that believes that senselessly killing hundreds of marine mammals for any reason is justified needs to be changed.
Hundreds of thousands of people are sickened by the media

Katherine Fernandez-Rundle: Charge Lazaro Ruiz with Maximum Penalties for Animal Cruelty, With Separate Charges for Each Dog | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
Backyard breeder and animal abuser Lazaro Ruiz should face full punishment for his crimes of animal cruelty. First, because he deserves it, and second, so others like him understand that their crimes against animals are not treated lightly. It's time the laws put in place to protect animals were fully enforced. 
Attention was brought to Lazaro's abuse by Huntley Wood's October 26th petition to have him arrested . Thankfully, he was arrested November 18th. Under Florida Law, he can be charged

All Canadian Provinces: Change the to allow the right to break a window to save a pets and kids left in a hot car. | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
I have seen, heard of pets as well as kids being left in vehicles on hot days. The death toll is too much to fathom. People need to relise that their vehicles become an oven. Regardless if your windows are down. There is little air movement inside your vehicle. Pets can't regulate their temperature as well as we can. Kids can't regulate their temperature as well yet either as nthey are still growing. Lives are worth more than the groceries you buy or your cup of coffee. We need to make the law t

L'Oreal: Stop Animal Testing On Cosmetics

L'Oreal: Stop Animal Testing On Cosmetics | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
A few years ago it was brought to many peoples attention that L'oreal (the cosmetic brand) uses animals to test their products, and we fought back. There was a huge situation about it and L'oreal claimed in 2013 that they no longer test on animals for any of their products, however, the statement on their website is full of loopholes that allow them to still test on innocent animals. I have taken some words from an online blog post by 'cruelty free kitty' quoting the websites statements and exp

Barack Obama, John Kerry: Outlaw Trophy Hunting Clubs such as Bushmen Safaris and Ivory Trade Safaris | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
These hunts are a senseless slaughter. These groups claim to be conservationists and are not instead they take away lives of animals that are on the verge of being endangered. Just so some rich person can have a trophy of a big game animal. We need to stop these hunts and preserve our wildlife cause once they are gone they are gone and we loose a little more of our humanity. So I plead with every human to urge our President and Senator Kerry to take action against these groups.

United Parcel Service: Stop shipping dead animal "trophies".

United Parcel Service: Stop shipping dead animal "trophies". | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
UPS has said "There are many items shipped in international commerce that may spark controversy," said Rosenberg. "The views on what is appropriate for shipment are as varied as the audiences that hold these views."
In other words, they care more about the almighty dollar than their customers and protecting the earth from destruction.  By continuing to ship big game trophies, canned hunting will continue and our lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo.  
Let's send the message to UPS that we will no longer stand for the senseless and needless killing of the animals of this world; that we value life over money.

Calin Rovinescu, CEO of Air Canada: End the transportation of Canadian wildlife trpohies

Calin Rovinescu, CEO of Air Canada: End the transportation of Canadian wildlife trpohies | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
Each year, tens of thousands of animals are killed in trophy hunts right here in Canada. Air Canada has stated that they will join other airlines in prohibiting the transportation of several types of wildlife trophies from Africa following the killing of the protected lion Cecil. But Air Canada can make their message felt more directly – and have a larger impact for the wild animals and environment of our country – if they make such prohibitions for animals killed in Canada.

Save sacred elephants from being tortured and abused in India

Save sacred elephants from being tortured and abused in India | ~ADVOCATING FOR ALL ANIMALS~ | Scoop.it
Despite India's progressive animal protection laws (considered to be the best in the world), elephants in the country are suffering unimaginable cruelties in the name of tradition.
These sacred and holy elephants are beaten and enslaved in ‘training’ camps located in Kerala and Karnataka. Many elephants have languished there for decades, chained to concrete pillars or trees. Some of them are babies who have been poached from their mothers, put in chains and beaten with rods to break their spirit. Their lives are filled with misery and despair.
An article in The Daily Mail Newspaper recently highlighted the story of 57 of these elephants who have been suffering for years in the name of tradition. Click here for story.
Please join Wildlife SOS in requesting the Prime Minister of India and the Forest Minister to ensure cruel practices of training and management are legislated by using existing laws that must be extended to apply to elephants held privately used for processions, begging and tourism and have the elephants live out their lives in a sanctuary setting where humane management techniques are practised and the elephants receive the dignity they deserve.

I have been following the story about the tragic death of Cecil the Lion with sadness and interest in seeing Zimbabwe's laws on hunting tighten up and the hopeful prosecution of Walter Palmer, who took this magnificent animal's life for what any rational human would term - no good reason.
As a consequence it was feared that the loss of Cecil would lead to the death of some or all of his cubs. Cecil along with 'brother' Jericho protected a pride consisting of both their cubs and a group of lio

When trophy hunters share photos of their kills on Facebook it desensitize people towards it and promotes it thus causing more and more wildlife to be killed just so someone can have a 'nice' wall decoration. These animals are precious and should be protected. Facebook has the power to limit the spread of trophy hunting preventing more animals like Cecil the lion to be hunted down.

There are less than 20.000 African Lions left in Africa and Walter Palmer, a Minnesotan Dentist who enjoys killing for pleasure, has killed at least 2 of them, the latest one being Cecil (this without taking into account that power struggles caused by Cecil's death could result in the death of Cecil's brothers and offspring.
