Good News: Seventh Generation Got the Message

It is clear that through social media, petitions, e-mails and other forms of communication companies feel the pressure of the consumers and are able to react fast. So adding your voice to a petition, writing an e-mail or picking up the phone makes a difference – for many animals in this case.

“After receiving tens of thousands of calls and e-mails and after 85,000 angry consumers signed our petition, Seventh Generation now understands the importance of animal-protection issues to consumers, and it has cleaned up its act! The company reversed course and signed on to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s letter to Congress acknowledging that animal tests are “slow, unreliable, and expensive” and calling for non-animal methods and strategies to be used first and foremost, and it has committed to advocating for this principle in all of its lobbying efforts.”

Thank you for spreading the word on animal awareness!

Good News: Wyoming Wolves Protected Under The Endangered Species Act

It is wonderful to share some good news:

“A federal judge ruled that Wyoming wolves must once again be protected under the Endangered Species Act.

Today, it is no longer legal in Wyoming to shoot wolves on sight, chase them down with vehicles, or gas wolf pups in their dens—all of which were permissible under Wyoming’s flawed wolf management scheme.”

War Zones: Human Suffering Always Leads to Animal Suffering

The conflict in the Middle East has left people homeless, children orphaned, nearly everybody suffering. And in the midst of the misery the animals hardly have a chance of help. Some organizations still take the risks and try to help these animals in desperate need.

“The conflict in the Gaza strip that went on for weeks caused not only human casualties but affected animals as well. The zoo in North Gaza was heavily damaged during the conflict. More than eighty animals in the zoo perished. The twenty surviving animals are now finally receiving medical assistance. The animal rescue organization FOUR PAWS was able to get access to the heavily damaged zoo and provide lifesaving medicine and food for the animals, as well as to restore the water supply.”

Due to the public´s outcry the governor of the state of Washington stopped the killing of the wolf pack known as the Huckleberry Pack. Several organizations have helped in this fight for the lives of the wolves, one of them being the Center for Biological Diversity.

“We breathed a sigh of relief this weekend as officials in Washington state finally called off the hunt for the Huckleberry wolf pack. The pack, hounded by helicopter snipers and trappers on the ground, faced the very real possibility of being destroyed within a matter of days.”

Thank to all who have helped so far!

Auch im Tierschutz kann ein David gegen den Palmöl-Goliath gewinnen, wie die kleine Organisation Save Our Borneo bewiesen hat:

“Ein Gerichtsurteil in Indonesien zeigt, dass Umweltschützer auch gegen eine mächtige Palmölfirma gewinnen können: Das Unternehmen Bumitama Agri Ltd. hat Mitte Juli vor dem Obersten Gerichtshof einen zweijährigen Prozess verloren. Der Firma, die an der Börse in Singapur notiert ist, wurde nachgewiesen, auf Borneo 7.000 Hektar Primärwald ohne Genehmigung gerodet zu haben.”

Pigs Would Support Punjab´s Decision

Is Punjab going to lead the way in preventing cruelty toward pigs? If only other countries would follow in the footsteps of this country´s grand decision:

“Back in June we posted on Facebook about shutting down India’s only gestation crate facility, a swine farm seeking to introduce this intensive confinement practice into the country. Sows confined in gestation crates aren’t able to turn around and often can’t lie down comfortably for months at a time. Such extreme confinement causes physical and mental suffering for these intelligent, sociable animals.

Closing the facility was a good start, but we also wanted to win broader and long-lasting protection for pigs, and we have good news to report!With further encouragement, the Government of Punjab has now issued an official direction making this type of intensive confinement an offense under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Officials in the government confirmed with us this week that their focus is now on alternatives.”

Chinchillas Are Waiting For New Homes

There are many chinchillas being kept as pets. Subjectively, I believe most of them are in homes unsuited for these rodents whose looks make them more “likable” than for example rats. Since chinchillas can live for up to twenty years chances are they will not be kept by the same people their whole lives. These little animals come from the Andes mountain range, do not like heat nor high humidity. But more often than not, they have to live in surroundings totally unsuitable for them. And then there is their beautiful fur. Some people would rather wear their chinchilla as coat than take care of the live animal.

“Valley View Chinchilla Ranch masqueraded as a breeder of “pets,” despite slaughtering, skinning, and selling the pelts of any chinchillas who supposedly did not “work out” as companions and even going so far as to hide its involvement in the fur industry—including a freezer containing pelts—from the public. The facility owner admitted to denying chinchillas veterinary care, performing painful medical procedures—including limb amputations—herself without pain relief, and using a method of painful electrocution deemed “unacceptable” by the American Veterinary Medical Association.”
