Pit Bulls in the Pits

Bildschirmfoto 2015-03-31 um 10.56.16

When most people meet a saint bernard on the street they will run up to her and pet her. Not so with pit bulls. People will try to cross the street and go as far away as possible. As with most animals, one should take a look at the other end of the leash. Yes, dogs have been bread to enhance certain characteristics. But no,  this does not make most pit bulls killer machines. Most of the time you need a human to turn the dog into a vicious being.

“Up to 99%  of pit bulls that enter a shelter are killed. Part of the problem is homeowners are finding it more and more difficult to obtain homeowners’ insurance that accept their breed of dogs.  In recent years, several insurance companies have blacklisted dog breeds they consider dangerous, making it all but impossible for dog owners to get the insurance they need to protect their home. Now Pit Bulls and similar dogs are filling up California shelters, breaking up families and costing the state millions of dollars.

It is time that California joined Pennsylvania and Michigan and prohibit breed specific insurance exclusions so we can stop the needless separation of families and the eventual euthanasia of innocent dogs.”

Remember Nosey the Elephant?

There is a glimmer of hope for a better life in the future of Nosey the elephant:

“The USDA has ordered Nosey out of the circus where she was performing in Texas and back to Florida for a veterinary check!

Thank you to the 163,000+ of you who signed this petition and sent letters to the USDA asking them to act on behalf of the long-suffering Nosey. Your voice has been heard!”

Thank you for helping and we will keep you updated on Nosey´s progress.

Do keep in mind to let your city officials know that you do not want circuses with animals performing in your city.

Don´t Monkey Around: Help Stop Unnecessary Experiments, Please



Most animal friends have by now probably heard of the exceptionally cruel and inhumane experiments planned at the University of Wisconsin. Many have written to show their contempt, horror and shock. There seem to be small cracks in the university´s hard shell of ignorance:

“Your efforts are starting to show signs of success. The university has decided that it will not separate and isolate the baby monkeys from their mothers at birth. I’m sure pressure from you helped them put extra effort to look at ways to reduce the controversy about these baby monkey experiments.

While this change is welcomed, the baby monkeys will still be tormented and killed after the first year of life. The experiment has not taken place! It’s scheduled to begin in June 2015 so now is the time to step up the pressure and be heard.

1) No matter where you live, everyone please contact Chancellor Blank’s office at (608) 262-9946 and ask once again that the university cancel this unethical and wasteful study.”

Three Baby Owls – How Does That Matter?

The Fund for Animals took in three young Great Horned Owls since they otherwise would not have survived. In times when daily millions of animals are slaughtered how important is the survival of three animals?

As so often, people will tend to be attracted to the fate of the young ones much easier. This interest can then be channeled into something bigger, more important, namely the survival not only of these three babies but their species. The more people get involved emotionally, the better chances are for a multitude to survive.
