Animal Abuse


PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona authorities arrested a veterinarian Monday on suspicion that he hit a five-pound Chihuahua in the head so hard that he dislodged the dog’s eye. Joshua Winston faces animal cruelty charges in the June 4 incident, according to Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Paul Chagolla. [Read more…]


Our loving, young pet Mimi, a very small, chi was murdered by a man named Frank on Tuesday afternoon. Frank took our little dog and slit her throat then threw her over his back fence. Thanks to the excellent, diligent work of the Novato Police Department, Frank was arrested and is in jail with a over $100,000 bail. This man took the life of our family member, a dog that gave nothing but love to all that she met. She made our family laugh everyday with her antics. Her best friend was Ty the big black Great Dane, who is now moping around the house looking for his little friend. When I found my dog with her throat cut, ants crawling on her body, blood coming out of her ears, my belief that every human being has some level of basic kindness, died in that moment. Who is this man, whatever reason he has for committing this act, this is a sick person who does not belong in our society. He should be listed as a predator, just like sex offenders. Is any one safe anymore? GIVE THIS MAN THE MAXIMUM SENTENCE. [Read more…]

Help Billy the elephant retire from the L.A. Zoo

I recently visited the Los Angeles Zoo and met Billy. I was very saddened by what I saw. He displayed behaviors that of a sick and stressed elephant and this broke my heart. Zoos are just not capable to maintain such an intelligent giant. As of May 15, 2007, he is now the only elephant at the Los Angeles Zoo and on exhibit. He will be moved onto a new expanded exhibit in 2009, but Billy will remain sick and stressed, living a life unfit for an elephant. Because Billy is a male elephant, he will be hard to place and this is why your help is even more important. [Read more…]

Stop Oregon Cougar Extermination

Oregon Fish and Wildlife have begun exterminating nearly half of Oregon’s Cougars. They plan to kill 2,500 of them including kittens and their mothers. This violates Oregons laws and Constitution, and was voted down by the state legislature but they don’t care. Please tell Governor Kulongoski to stop them, firing and fining all involved in the massacure of our wildlife, Oregon’s proud Mountain Lions. [Read more…]

Primate Sanctuary Regulations

This petition evolved from a recent case of horrid findings in a Texas primate sanctuary, where years of inadequate care of it’s residence and upkeep resulted in the Attorney General stepping in and placing the facility in receivership. A national movement to establish standards and regulations is needed to stop this kind of nightmare from every happening again. I challenge the USA to take a stand and help start a movement to try and ensure that the remainder of these beings lifes are spent in sanctuaries that are well monitored. We owe it to them.

Therefore, we the undersigned, will be boycotting ALL Chinese goods, and asking family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, groups and anyone else who will listen, NOT TO PURCHASE CHINESE PRODUCTS or visit Beijing’s upcoming 2008 Summer Olympics.

Protect the Most Important Fish in the Sea!

Atlantic herring just need some respect. These small fish are essential to the health of our oceans. But large industrial ships known as herring mid-water trawlers are removing more Atlantic herring from New England’s inshore areas than is sustainable. [Read more…]

Help Save the Florida Panther!

There are fewer than 100 Florida panthers left in the wild, and many of them live in Big Cypress National Preserve. Yet the National Park Service is now considering opening up a part of Big Cypress to off-road vehicles (ORVs)! [Read more…]

Stop Out of Control Gas Prices, Increase Fuel Efficiency Standards!

It’s not a secret. Gas prices are out of control and reached a historic high this Memorial Day weekend, the official start of summer drive season. It’s time for Congress to do something meaningful to control gas prices by requiring our cars, light trucks and SUVs to go further on a gallon of gasoline. But the powerful auto industry continues to stand in the way of miles per gallon standards. [Read more…]

Protect Our Coasts from Drilling

With the help of powerful Congressional allies, pro-drilling forces are aggressively pushing bills that would undermine the moratorium that protects our coasts. Tell the Administration that you do not want our coasts opened up to destructive oil and gas drilling. [Read more…]

Best Friends Animal Society: IT’S NOT COOL TO BE CRUEL!

It appears that the violent subculture of dog fighting has permeated the world of professional sports and entertainment. Dog fighting is horrifically cruel for the dogs, but also a dangerous, illegal activity that often involves violence, weapons, illegal gambling and drugs. We, the undersigned, urge America’s major sports leagues—the National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and Major League Soccer to take immediate action to help stop participation and support of dog fighting.
