Urge Congress to Pass Law Against Ownership of Tigers For Personal & Fun Purposes!

Please signing and share this petition in an effort to support the World Wildlife's efforts in saving wild animals like the big majestic tigers from captivity through private ownership, in zoos and circuses. According to the Big Cats and Public Safety Protection Act, we are encouraging Congress to pass a law that bans these types of practices, not only for the safety of humans but the these glorious tigers and other wild animals.


Through their investigation, the World Wildlife Fund has surmised that the attack on humans throughout many countries like the United States, India, Australia, China and Singapore has escalated tremendously because of the dangers and cruelty endured by one of the planet's top predators while in captivity. Several children and adults have been killed by large cats in captive situations like zoos, circuses, private "entertainment venue's" and even private ownership.


Statistically, the WWF estimates that about 5,000 tigers are being held in captivity in the USA alone, with 6 percent residing in zoos and similar facilities. Unbelievably, the remainder of these animals are held in tiny, repulsive cages in unaccredited zoos, private backyards, circuses, sideshows, private ownership, truck stops for private viewing and private breeding facilities. These occurrences happen because most areas have little to no regulations, and those that do are not enforced.


These animals need to be in their natural habitats or in sanctuaries like the one at Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Texas, where the needs of the tigers is a top priority. Help us to support Congress in passing a law that will ban ownership of tigers in zoos, circuses and any private ownership or venues. Additionally, not only should these laws be implemented, they need to be enforced for the health and well-being of the tigers and humans.

Daily Voice : Namibia: Don't De-Horn Rhinos for Profit!

Namibia: Don't De-Horn Rhinos for Profit!

The Namibian government has been cutting the horns off rhinos in national parks and private conservation reserves in an attempt to deter poachers. Poachers have killed 14 of Namibia's rhinos so far this year to sell their horns for use in unscientific Chinese medicine that has never been proven to improve any ailment.


While the government's actions may be well intentioned, cutting off the rhino's horns strips them of all the protection they have against poachers. In a disturbing twist, the government is seeking permission from the United Nations to sell the horns for profit, undermining their claim that they have the rhinos' best interests at heart.


Please sign the petition to urge the Namibian government to focus their efforts on controlling poachers without stripping rhinos of their natural defense and beauty.

Daily Voice : Ban the Import of Lion Trophies to the U.S.

Ban the Import of Lion Trophies to the U.S.

In the 1960s, it was estimated that there were 200,000 lions on the African continent. Sadly, only 20,000 are left today. Sport hunting is still permitted in the wild and South Africa specifically breeds lions for captive hunting,- "canned hunting".


Sport hunting refers to animals killed for the prize of an animal trophy, usually the skin or mounted head of the animal. That can be done legally in a few places, such as game reserves. However, illegal sport hunting across Africa and poachers selling on lion trophies to the rest of the world is a real issue.


Sport hunting mostly targets adult male animals. Hunters regard them as the most impressive to kill. It is estimated that only 15 percent at most of any lion population is composed of adult males--the primary trophy targets.


The continued specific removal of the male from the lion population, (called "mining"), is unsustainable since they cannot be replaced. We ask that the United States ban importing these "trophies" of male lions from sports hunting.

Daily Voice : Help Us Prevent Child Blindness
« Reply #507 on: November 29, 2014, 12:00:18 AM »
Help Us Prevent Child Blindness

Up to 500,000 children go blind every year from vitamin A deficiency. And the most tragic part is that it's entirely preventable.



Vitamin A deficiency is the world's leading cause of preventable blindness in children. 44% of preschoolers in Sub-Saharan Africa are vitamin A deficient. Not only does this mean they are much more likely to go blind over the course of their lives, but they are also more likely to die before they turn five from compromised immune systems.



Helen Keller International is committed to eliminating vitamin A deficiency and ensuring that women and children all over the world have the nourishment they need to lead healthy, productive lives.



Orange sweet potatoes are especially rich in vitamin A. Eating one small orange sweet potato daily will provide a young child with enough vitamin A to keep them growing healthy and strong.



Help us combat malnutrition and its tragic consequences all around the world. Take a stand today and sign the petition to ensure no child becomes ill or goes blind from avoidable vitamin A deficiency.

Demand police find a dog fighting ring that stole loved pet dog from garden

A dog was abducted from its family home in Melbourne, Australia and used as bait in a dog fighting ring.


Alfie, a kelpie-Labrador cross, went missing from his home for 24 hours - it is believed the dog had been stolen from the back garden in broad daylight.


However, Alfie managed to escape the hands of his abductors and miraculously made his way home with horrific injuries, including 10cm-deep and 20cm-long gash which came within millimetres of his jugular artery.


A rope was still tied around his back leg and there were chain marks around his neck.


When the dog’s owner found Alfie outside the family home – she rushed him to the vet where he underwent emergency surgery and a blood transfusion. The vet believed Alfie had been attacked by a much larger dog.


Police say an unknown woman was seen leaving the home and getting into a car on the day of the dog’s disappearance.


Police must conduct a thorough investigation to find and prosecute those responsible to ensure justice for Alphie and that no other dog suffers the same fate – or worse. Please sign and share the petition.

Press Charges For Animal Abuse, Cruelty & Neglect at NJ Animal Shelter

Please sign and share this petition in an effort to gain the harshest charges against the original owners and staff at the Helmetta Regional Animal Shelter in New Jersey. Potential criminal charges were filed against the shelter and it was also placed in quarantine by the Middlesex County Department of Health. Although these charges exist, a new administrator is taking over currently to try and help the animals therein and do what is best to pull this facility out of its mess. Help to find justice for the animals who rely on shelter care by prosecuting those responsible for the neglect and abuse.


A shelter in Helmetta, NJ has been serving two communities of Middlesex and Monmouth counties but they have been under scrutiny and investigation by animal activists regarding allegations of possible cruelty, abuse and neglect. During the earlier inspection, they found six areas of concern that needed to be addressed, but were not. The authorities discovered 170 cats; several in isolation, some that had to be removed the shelter, a cat in critical condition, one with a high 105 degree temperature and one that died shortly after the rescue on the way to the vet. Another animal had to be euthanized right at the shelter due to critical illness.


They also discovered 30 dogs; four that were in isolation and others with varying degrees of neglect and abuse. A new interim administrator, 26 year old Matt Crane was selected to oversee the shelter, along with the help of a new veterinarian. The previous administrator and staff were given several warnings and opportunities to address issues presented by the New Jersey SPCA but did nothing to resolve the concerns. Major issues dealt with disease control, such as mingling sick animals with healthy ones. Now the shelter is closed and quarantined, remaining as such until the completion of the investigation and health clearance of all animals.


As stated by one of the investigators, "The love of the animals is what this is all about. We do what we do for the animals.” Authorities are appalled by what they found when they all came together to check on the facility and the animals in their care. The rescue group integrated 15 officers and veterinarian Dr. Heather Lingley who were there to help and care from all the animals which included many pets with respiratory concerns and eye issues. Some of the animals needed immediate medical care while others were not as critical and could be tended to within 24 hours. Most did not even have water in their crates which is a major concern.


As stated by those in charge, a shelter is considered an inherent contagious environment where animals come all types of areas and circumstances. It is important that the animals arriving be screened for good health before putting them in with other healthy specimens. Obviously, proper protocol was not followed by the administrators and staff at the shelter in Helmetta. Help us to make these folks held accountable while also requiring anyone working at a shelter to be fully educated on proper procedures and policies when it comes to the health and well-being of so many animals. Please sign and share this petition on all media sites to spread the word so such occurrences do not happen again at a place that we expect animals to be cared for unconditionally.

Daily Voice : Stop Fisheries Managers From Cutting Crucial Habitat Protections
« Reply #510 on: December 02, 2014, 12:00:10 AM »
Stop Fisheries Managers From Cutting Crucial Habitat Protections

Important areas in New England's offshore waters, protected from destructive fishing gear for decades, are under threat. These places are essential for a variety of marine animals, including some of the region's most iconic species such as cod and whales.



Right now, New England fisheries managers are considering plans that would expand the range of damaging forms of fishing by dramatically reducing the overall size of protected areas. In the worst case scenario, 70 percent of currently closed territory would be opened up to bottom trawling and dredging.



The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) must prevent this from happening. Recent studies show that cod in the Gulf of Maine are only at 3 percent of a healthy population: an all-time low. Even if fishing is reduced dramatically, cod will still need safe places to grow and reproduce in order to recover.



Now is not the time to roll back protections that depleted fish species, marine mammals, and seabirds need.



Take Action: Tell NOAA Fisheries to improve protection of ocean habitat in New England waters!

Urge Punishment for Teen That Kills Kittens out of Boredom and Post on Face book

I just don’t understand how kids these days think it is okay to abuse animals as a form of entertainment!!!!  What is going on?  A teen was bored in Indiana recently and thought he would fill his leisure time, rather than part time work, sports and other fun activities, by hunting down poor defenseless kittens with a bow and arrow and then posting their mutilated bodies on Face Book!!!!!!!!!!


This 17-year old boy said he was bored out of his mind, so he thought he would go hunt cats.  He speared one kitten through the head and disemboweled the other one, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s office. After he finished his “hunt,” he put the photographs on his Face book page. The photos included pictures of him pretending to eat the kittens, and were so gruesome they were ultimately removed by Face Book. Officials stated that the photos were very disturbing and psychotic. This young individual was so proud of what he did that he decided to post them on his Face Book page.  http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/08/bored-indiana-teen-allegedly-killed-kittens-posted-images/


An anonymous tip came from a Face Book viewer who alerted the Lake County Sheriff’s Office in Indiana and the teen was brought in and charged with animal cruelty.  Of course, he can’t be charged as an adult; he is a juvenile who will get off with a slap on the wrist and back to his demented idea of fun!!!  Even adults don’t seem to face proper punishment for animal abuse and cruelty!!  We must get legislators to develop and enforce stronger laws and harsher punishment for abusers of poor defenseless creatures without a voice – and kids need to learn from parents and schools to have more respect and compassion for loving, living beings!
