Animals and Oil Do Not Mix Well

Four years after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico many animals still are in dire straights. Not only have many animals died due to the disaster, but the offspring of many species still is threatened by the aftermath of this ecological nightmare.

“This summer, endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle hatchlings faced many obstacles as they scrambled from their nest towards the Gulf waters.

But their biggest hurdle in the waters ahead may be the lingering effects of the 2010 Gulf oil spill.

Finally, we’re nearing a point where the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council can seriously start reviewing long-term restoration projects in the Gulf.

Urge the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council to restore habitat for Gulf wildlife like the Kemp’s ridley sea turtles!

Make More Noise for Nosey

Please speak up for Nosey, the tortured elephant, thank you!

A fun weekend lies ahead of many families: fall fairs are on in abundance, parents will take their children to the rides, let them have cotton candy, stroll around over the fair grounds, and … see animals being abused? Yes, there are still people who have not heard about the forms of torture used to make animals perform unwillingly in front of humans.

“Nosey the elephant is scheduled to be in Indiana this week, where she will be forced to perform with the Great American Family Circus and give rides at the Kewanna Fall Festival from September 26 through 28, despite the fact that recent video footage shows that she is in pain. Nosey needs you to speak up for her! Please urge festival organizers to cancel Nosey’s appearances immediately and to pledge never to host elephant acts again.”

Stephen Huneck was an artist who dedicated much of his work to dogs. He and his wife Gwen opened up Dog Mountain to the public and since the year 2000 many dog events have taken place in this beautiful part of Vermont. Dogs get to run free and can enjoy some fun times with many other dogs.

One last dog party is coming up:

“Saturday October 11th, noon to 4. It’s our last dog party of the year, and it should be great!

It’s the most beautiful time of the year in New England, and it’s time once again to celebrate the season at Dog Mountain’s annual Fall Dog Party!

There will be a host of activities for the whole family, from foot-tapping live music by Vermont folk duo The Endorsements, to a bounce house for the kids, door prizes, food, dog contests, and more.

We hope you can take the time to grab your camera, hop in the car, and take the scenic ride to leaf-romping, four-legged fun and smiles at Dog Mountain. Your dogs will thank you with many wags of their tail and wet kisses.

The Fall Dog Party 2014 is free to the public and will be held rain or shine

If you would like to help Dog Mountain promote the Fall Dog Party, please print out our poster Here.

Or, if you would like to donate an hour or two of your time to help out at the party, please fill out a volunteer form Here.”

Torturing and Killing in the Name of God

Photo: HSI

Photo: HSI

Almost every religion has some kind of torture, sacrifice and killing of animals laid out in their scriptures. No one should discriminate against any of these religions or people of any faith. Any changes should come from the inside, the people involved, not from the outside, claiming to know everything better. This usually only leads to more tensions, hardly getting anyone to help. Helping those willing to change is of the essence here, and in almost all religions there are those willing to help change traditions that hurt others.

“In just weeks, more than 500,000 water buffalo, pigs, goats, chickens, pigeons and even mice will be slaughtered en masse by inexperienced people – tortured, beaten and in some cases, beheaded with all manner of weapons, causing a slow, painful death. The goal: pleasing Gadhimai, the goddess of power.”

Please speak up for the animals, not down on people of another faith.

Would You Experiment on Your Dog? Or Cat? Or Hamster?

At first, most people will respond to this question with an immediate negation. But asked whether or not they want progress in medical research they would mostly support this, even if it includes experiments on animals. In times of medical crises these numbers rise, as can be seen with the spread of ebola.

So first of all, finding alternatives to these inhumane experiments is crucial, and secondly, educating the public on what kind of experiments are done and to whom is essential. Progress is being made, but there still are many unnecessary torture-like experiments being done on animals.

“Almost a year has passed since the release of our investigation that captured painful dental experiments on dogs like Shy Guy behind closed doors at Georgia Regents University (GRU). Fortunately, the university agreed to stop buying dogs from random-source “Class B” dealers in response to our investigation. But it appears that lethal experiments continue on other dogs, and additional public pressure is needed to bring them to an end.”

One Deal = Heaven or Hell for Millions

Photo: HSI

Trade deals between nations can change the fate not only of these nations´s human population but can also make or break the lives of millions of animals.

The more animal welfare groups speak up before all deals are settled, the better the chances are their voices will be heard.

“Currently, the United States lags far behind the EU, where legislation protects farm animals from extreme confinement systems like battery cages and gestation crates. The EU also bans animal testing for cosmetics, but the U.S. still allows this painful and lethal testing. And unfortunately the U.S. and EU continue to legally import and export wildlife — in many cases, from endangered species who are caught, transported, and often killed in the most inhumane ways.

The TTIP agreement could push the U.S. to improve animal welfare standards if it wants to gain greater access to the EU market. It’s a roundabout — but effective — way to improve living conditions for millions of hens, pigs, and cows; ending the suffering of hundreds of thousands of rabbits and mice, and protecting wild animals. In other words, this single trade deal could accomplish the same progress for animals as multiple laws.”
