Daily Voice : Tell First Responders to Carry Pet Oxygen Masks
« Reply #320 on: May 21, 2014, 01:00:47 AM »
Tell First Responders to Carry Pet Oxygen Masks

A cat named "Little" was saved from an Indiana house fire thanks to quick-thinking fire fighters and the pet oxygen masks they had on hand.


Firemen Troy Platz and Ken Knoell found the cat hiding in the corner and immediately put on an oxygen mask while rushing him outside. Little's owner was happy to see him alive and welcomed him with open arms.


Unfortunately, not all first responders carry pet oxygen masks. It is a simple thing that fire fighters and EMTs can do to save animals' lives and spare families the trauma of losing a pet on top of property damage from fires. Please sign the petition to urge all first responders to carry pet oxygen masks!

Daily Voice : Stop the Illegal Slaughter of Leopards
« Reply #321 on: May 22, 2014, 01:00:20 AM »
Stop the Illegal Slaughter of Leopards

The Leopard is protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, or CITES, and the sale or possession of its parts is illegal in South Africa. The leopard is also listed as "near threatened" by the International Union Conservation of Nature- and the sale or possession of its parts is illegal in South Africa.

Yet thousands of leopard skins are showing up and being used as essential  attire for religious ceremonies, threatening the leopard with extinction.

150 leapards may be legally poached, but thousands are openly traded at church gathering with no law enforcement.

Stop the illegal slaughter of leopards imediately, and replace the leopards skin with fake fur.

Daily Voice : Arizona- Ban Canned Hunting
« Reply #322 on: May 23, 2014, 01:49:50 AM »
Arizona- Ban Canned Hunting

Animals are trapped within a fenced enclosure from which they cannot escape, then people go in and pay a fee to kill those animals. Many of the animals used in canned hunts come from private breeders and zoos. These are animals that are indigenous to Africa or Asia, but they're bred here in the U.S. for this kind of activity.


Nearly two dozen members of Congress have co-sponsored a bill known as the Sportsmanship in Hunting Act, which would make it illegal to transport exotic species between states for the purposes of hunting.


The Safari Club International in Arizona has lobbied Congress and spoken out against bills that would make the practice of hunting exotic game in fenced-in preserves illegal. The organization based in Arizona is defending this controversial type of hunting that is against the law in Arizona.

Oregon; Donâ??t Treat Animals as Property But Family Members In Abuse Cases

Please sign and share this petition on all your media sites in an effort to get Oregon and hopefully other states nationwide to change their laws that treats animals and the abuse/cruelty they endure as property with meaningless effects.


Recently, a case was brought to court involving a dog that was starved by its owner and the case was thrown out without punishing the woman. Local citizens were appalled at the case and decision of the judge. This incident could set a precedent by making it more difficult for animal-cruelty investigators to seek instantaneous care for beaten, starved or otherwise injured pets. And the ruling could make it tougher for prosecutors to go after people suspected of abusing or neglecting their animals.


PETA or the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have more than 300 million members and supporters throughout the United States with the slogan that states that, "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment or abuse in any way." Many states enforce this slogan in their laws against animal abuse and cruelty, especially Maryland and other eastern areas. However, some states are still lacking in their laws and practices that involves the care and well-being of animals.


It is sad to think that animals are only considered property in the eyes of the law. That is why there is so much abuse of animals worldwide; who cares if “property” is broken, abused and tossed out like yesterday’s trash??!! Such a case exist in Oregon when an informant told the Oregon Humane Society that Portland-area resident Newcomb was beating her dog, failing to properly feed it and keeping it in a kennel for many hours a day. An animal-cruelty investigator went to Newcomb’s apartment and, once invited in, saw the dog in the yard “in a near emaciated condition.” The dog, the investigator reported, “was kind of eating at random things in the yard, and trying to vomit.”The investigator asked why, and Newcomb said she was out of dog food but that she was going to get more that night. Really?


After the case went to court, this woman was actually sentenced to a year of probation and not able to own another animal for five years. However, the case went before the Court of Appeals to try and release of her any sentencing because officials did not have a search warrant when the dog was discovered. The dog was near death! The owner argued that dogs are personal property and she has the same privacy rights to her dog as she would to objects such as pocket knives or boots -- which is a reference to previous case law. This is such unfair treatment of a living, breathing being that most humans consider members of the family. Additionally, with the original sentencing she received, she should never be allowed to own another pet as long as she lives. Since they are objects to her and others like her, you know she will be a repeat offender!


Please sign and share this petition on all your media sites in an effort to get Oregon and hopefully other states nationwide to change their laws that treats animals and the abuse/cruelty they endure as property with meaningless effects. Animals are living, breathing beings that should be treated and respected as family members; not objects or property.

1-800 Flowers: Investigate Conditions in Your Colombian Factories!

With Mother's Day coming up this weekend, flower sales with be at a high. Unfortunately, horrible exploitation goes into about 80% of the flowers Americans give for Mother's Day. Workers are exposed to pesticides, denied medical care, and sometimes even fired if they become pregnant -- all for a $300/month salary.
The company 1-800 Flowers imports flowers through Ascoflores, an export association that provides about 75% of the flowers from Colombia to the US.
This is especially bad since they claim on their "about us" page that they try to work with sustainable organizations that pay a living wage!
Working mom Lorena never wanted to work in the cut flower industry. But she needed the money once giving birth to her first child at 19. In the region of Colombia where Lorena has spent her entire life—known as the Bogota Savannah—cut flowers are king. “There’s no other work, no other industry here,” she told Vice. As a single mother, Lorena had few alternatives but to enter the vast farms and cut flower factories.
Years of dangerous work have wracked Lorena’s body, leaving her with debilitating injuries. Lorena traded her youth and health to support her family. “I don’t want the same for my daughters,” she told Vice. Thankfully, neither of her daughters have to work in the industry.
Ask 1-800 Flowers to investigate the conditions in the Colombian factories they source flowers from, and pledge only to work with growers who treat workers with respect, fair wages and safe conditions!

Duke, don't charge customers $10 billion to clean up your mess!

Duke Energy told North Carolina lawmakers recently that removing all of the company's coal ash away from the state's rivers and lakes would take decades and cost up to $10 billion, with its electricity customers footing nearly all the bill. 
No need to read that again, you read it correctly the first time. What should be entirely the responsibility of Duke energy is being made the problem of the consumer: making their customers dig into their pockets and footing the bill to clean up something that should never have happened in the first place. Duke will ask state regulators to raise the rates it charges customers. Raising the rates will not only make it the consumer’s problem, but will also add the pressure of ever rising inflation and pressure an already pressured population. Rising the cost of electricity will indirectly affect the cost of other good and services.
With an annual profit of almost 3 billion dollars, surely one has to ask the question. “Why are they trying to make their problem, our problem?”
A few more questions come to mind also. “How did Duke allow this to happen?” and if not for the spill in the Dan river which brought a lot of unwanted attention to their landfills, would they have been in this position trying to fix the problem now anyway.
In all fairness lets give credit where it is due. They are making an effort to clean up the mess that they have created. But that is as far as it goes. They have bent to public pressure to clean up their act, now we need to apply that pressure again to make sure that they do it with some integrity. And that is where you come in.
Lets send a message to Duke that we refuse to pay for their cleanup. They should take responsibility for what they have done, and for them to fix it with their own money. And not break the backs of the ordinary Americans who already suffer under the burden of a high cost of living.
Come on Duke, do the right thing! Pay to clean up your own mess.

Daily Voice : Help Protect Wolves In California

Help Protect Wolves In California

Good news for wolves on the West Coast: California's first wolf in 87 years, wolf OR-7, may have a mate and puppies.Just this week agency officials in Oregon announced that information from OR-7's radio collar and images captured on trail cameras suggest that OR-7 and a female wolf may have denned near the Oregon-California border.The writing is on the wall: More wolves will be returning to California.  With federal protections about to be lifted, it's essential wolves be granted full state endangered species protections to help them get reestablished.In April the California Fish and Game Commission voted to ban predator-killing contests but are holding a second hearing before deciding whether to give wolves full state protections.So-called "contest-hunts" or "derbies" that award cash and other prizes to those who kill the most or largest animals (often coyotes) are antiquated and brutal. They also put endangered species at risk. It's important to ensure the commission follows through on its vote to end these derbies. Sign before May 30th and help us urge the commission to grant wolves full protections under the California Endangered Species Act and end these barbaric hunts.
