National Alerts: Urge PETsMART to Stop Selling Birds Diseased Birds Found in Multiple PETsMART Stores

PETsMART has temporarily suspended the sale of birds in approximately 775 stores in 44 states across the U.S., after birds in 23 PETsMART stores tested positive for avian chlamydiosis (also called psittacosis) — a disease that is transmittable to humans.

The disease is suspected to have originated with a major bird vendor/distributor in Florida — where birds are mass-produced and shipped all over the country to stock pet shops libreoffice kostenlos windows 10. This includes major pet shop chains PETsMART, Pet Land, and Superpetz.

Of further concern in this case, is that it has been revealed that the Florida distributor (with approval from PETsMART) uses antibiotics as a prophylactic treatment — dosing birds with antibiotics whether the birds have the bacteria or not. But only birds confirmed to be sick should be treated for disease.

Now is the time to help turn PETsMART’s temporary suspension of sales into a permanent change wieviel filme kann ich bei netflixen. Urge PETsMART to stop selling birds in its stores, and to instead work exclusively with bird rescue groups and/or to refer customers interested in birds directly to the rescue groups.

Urgent: Sign a Petition to Help Save Wild Tigers

Sadly, we currently live in a world where there are likely more tigers in Chinese tiger farms than there are wild tigers living free vera 2018 herunterladen. And here in the U.S. there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild. We must work together to save the tiger before it’s too late.

As part of our work with the International Tiger Coalition, Born Free USA united with Animal Protection Institute is urging the Chinese government — in the face of mounting pressure to reopen the domestic trade — to make its current prohibition on the sale of tiger parts a permanent ban.

To aid in these efforts, we need to gather as many petition signatures as possible by January 21.

Born Free USA strongly believes that reopening any trade in tiger parts — even just within China — will stimulate global market demand and lead to even more widespread poaching.

Allowing the legal sale of tiger parts and products within China will result in a bounty being placed on the head of every wild tiger clinging perilously to life on this planet. This cannot be allowed to happen.

You can help stop the downward spiral toward the extinction faced by tigers in the wild, by signing our online petition today — and sending a message to the Chinese government that the eyes of the world are watching.
