241. Help Stop Animal Testing

We are an organization called the A.A.A.T. Club.

We are a group of pre-teen girls, but we are determined to give the animals the love they deserve.

242. Eliminate Unnecessary Animal Testing

Animals have been killed and tortured just so they can tell you how much detergent will burn your eyes out on the warning! Just so we can have makeup, just for us to have shampoo! Is this right? NO!

Companies that test:
Kleenex
IAMS
Chanel
L'oreal
Pantene
Calvin Klein
soft soap
Johnson and Johnson
Victoria's secret
Clairol
Playtex

and thats barely any!

EXAMPLES: These companies usually test on chimpanzees, chickens, and rabbits. They torture them endlessly. An example of animal testing: A rabbit's eyes are taped open and a liquid acid is slowly dripped in (laundry detergent).

They see how much detergent it takes before the rabbit goes blind or they're eyes burn out. They do this just so they can put "Warning. Not safe if goes into eyes" on the label. Really?

EVIDENCE: A few years ago the goverment put up an under cover case.What did they find but another tape of scientists working for a company placing a baby monkey into a blender. Yet, more signs of abuse from animal testers!!!!

PLEASE HELP STOP THIS BY SIGNING THIS PETITION!!!

243. Save the Whales Again

As many of you have heard and others have not, in Japan and surrounding areas, they are trapping and killing whales once again.

I personally have nothing against Japan or its people but i don't think that killing these animals is the right thing.

244. Help Stop a Puppy Farmer!

I purchased two puppies from a "Licenced Breeder" both Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. The owner lied to me about everything & my little puppy was extremely ill with Kennel cough & bronchitis. She nearly died & is half the normal weight.

It turns out they were bought from a PUPPY FARMER... who continues to sell sick & dying puppies....

My little puppy Lola has been on constant treatment costing £400 + and she is starting to recover. The puppies were suppose to be Kennel Club registered and they are NOT.

245. Close Huntingdon Life Sciences

Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is Europe’s largest contract animal testing laboratory.

They have about 70,000 animals on site, including rabbits, cats, hamsters, dogs, guinea-pigs, birds and monkeys. These animals are destined to suffer and die in cruel, useless experiments. 500 of them die each day.

HLS will test anything for anybody. They carry out experiments which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colourings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms.

HLS have been infiltrated and exposed a number of times in recent years. Each time horrific evidence of animal abuse and staff incompetence has been uncovered, including workers punching beagle puppies in the face.

Take action to have this disgrace of a company closed down. For more information please visit www.huntingdonlifesciences.com and www.shac.net. These sites can explain it much better.

246. Stop animal slaughter in the name of religion

Apologists for Ritual Slaughter claim that it is both quick and humane. We say that this imported ritual isn't - it is barbaric, cruel and wholly unnecessary. In addition ritually slaughtered meat should not be clandestinely fed to our kids in their school dinners - as is happening in hundreds of schools up and down the country at present!

Does your kids' school secretly serve up ritually slaughtered meat in their meals? If you don't know then we urge you to find out!

Parents and pupils alike should contact their schools to demand that any ritually slaughtered meat used in school catering be clearly labelled as such, so as to provide freedom of choice for the vast majority of pupils who, quite rightly, have no wish to participate in the most prolific form of animal cruelty practiced in Britain today!

247. Eliminate Animal Cosmetics Testing

Please sign this petition, this is for the rights of animals to stop animal cosmetics testing because many animals die every day/year, and I want to stop it.

248. ANIMALS FEEL PAIN

The dog in the picture was snatched from the streets by sick thugs.

It’s muzzle was bound so tightly with twine it could barely breathe let alone whimper.

Then callously forced into a sack she was tossed onto a pile of other terrified dogs ready to be butchered for meat.

She was one of the lucky ones because a team of police and volunteers intercepted the shipment and seized her and the other poor dogs.

We urgently need your help in our campaign to free dogs like her from the clutches of this heartless and illegal trade committed by criminals in Thurrock.

We demand severe punishment for anybody who abuses animals in any way.

It makes us sick to the stomach with the problem we have with animal torturers. These people are complete and utter cowards. They pick on defenceless animals because they know they can't fight back, it's disgusting and we feel ashamed to live in a society where animals can be treated this way.

249. Stop the abuse of chickens for KFC

Every day, thousands of chickens are tortured and slaughtered, just so people can eat at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

These chickens are stuffed in tiny cages, and given chemicals that make them grow so huge that they can't even walk. Then they are strapped upside down and put it in an acid bath that immobilizes them. Most avoid that in their struggle. Then their necks and wings are broken, and all this time they can feel it. Then their heads are cut off.

And when they're not going through that, they are being beaten by workers. The workers stomp them and throw them against walls. All out of boredom. This is wrong. Help stop it.

250. Stop animal cruelty in circuses

Behind the scenes, elephant trainer Tim Frisco instructs would-be trainers how to dominate elephants and make them perform circus tricks. “Sink that hook into ’em. When you hear that screaming, then you know you got their attention.”

An elephant trumpets in agony as Frisco’s bullhook, with its sharp metal hook and spiked end, tears through her sensitive skin. Frisco, a Carson & Barnes elephant trainer, learned the trade from his father, a former trainer for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

The fact is, animals do not naturally ride bicycles, stand on their heads, balance on balls, or jump through rings of fire. To force them to perform these confusing and physically uncomfortable tricks, trainers use whips, tight collars, muzzles, electric prods, bullhooks, and other painful tools of the trade.

We applaud trapeze artists, jugglers, clowns, tightrope walkers, and acrobats, but let’s leave animals in peace. Sweden, Austria, Costa Rica, India, Finland, and Singapore have all banned or restricted the use of animals in entertainment—it’s time for the U.S. to do the same.

251. Against the Cruel Treatment of Animals in ihe Sharjah Animal Market

The condition of the keeping of animals especially pet animals ie. cats and dogs in unhealthy and cruel conditions is way beyond belief.

A visit to the Sharjah animal market will guarantee you to be in shock after seeing for e.g. 2 large dogs in cages less than 2x4 no space for movement no water no food. Cats in bird cages even small dogs in bird cages!!!

Birds jam packed together in cramped conditions, some dead on the floor. This is only a fraction of the horrors there....

252. Banning Pit Bulls in Michigan

THERE ARE NUMEROUS CASES OF CHILDREN BEING ATTACKED, AND IN SOME CASES KILLED BY THESE ANIMALS.

253. STOP ANIMAL ABUSE!!

Im only 13 and i have learned the world is a cruel place.

Animal abuse is wronge and its mean. I hate animal abuse and dog fighting and just in generally being mean to animals! They are living creatures and I just wish more people would report any sign of animal abuse and dog fighting.

PLEASE STOP ANIMAL ABUSE!!

254. No live animal should be given away, raffled of offered as a prize

Currently New Hanover County offers space to fairs which raffle live animals to contestants. The raffled animals range from baby iguanas to goldfish.

People who win these animals receive little or no information on how to care for them. They may not even want them. The futures of these animals is unknown. It is possible that they are mistreated or even abandoned.

255. Help Stop Horse Slaughter

Each Year Hundreds of thousands of horses are slaughtered in United States and are transported to Canada for inhumane consumption.
Wild horses, ponies, race horses, pleasure horses, sick, old, even healthy are all unwanted or no longer needed will be slaughtered because owners demands change.
Sold through auctions horses will then be sold from the killer buyers by the pound.
The fatter and bigger the horse it's chances are at higher risk to go for meat.
The horses are then packed in double decker trucks which should only be used for pigs and cattle.
The ceilings do not meet there needs as they are to low for the horses to lift there heads comfortably.
The horses being transported for slaughter are not properly rested, fed or given water.
The long rides are approx 36 sometimes more.
Alot of times when the driver reaches his destination most of the exhausted horses end up being injured or dead from cramming too many horses in the trucks.
The dead ones end up being left behind.
The law states that horses be unconcious before having this awful practice done but in most cases that doesn't happen.
Many investigators have witnessed horses still consious and were improperly stunned.
Usually with a device called a captive bolt gun which shoots a metal rod in to the horses brain.
The conditions in the slaughter house are stressful and frightning.
France, Holland, Mexico, Europe, and Japan are just some of the countries that eat horse.
The over breeding such as race horses and pleasure horses has got to stop it has made a higher risk for slaughter.
In the states 92.3% of horses are still in good condition alot of people lie and state there sick, old, or injured but again thats not always the case.
Owners selling there school horses or ponies to auctions are not always aware what happens after they are sold.
Do you really know where there going?
I don't get horse people any more once there horse gets sick or can't do the job anymore the owners give up on them people should be ashamed of them selves and wake up and realize whats happening.
These horses were not meant for meat.
These living loving animals have done so much for us like win the race bred beautiful foals.
They all deserve a second chance and better lives for people to love them for them instead of being sent for slaughter.
These horses suffer a painful death.
I believe there's a home for every horse out there.
My heart will never stop until this ends in happiness for them.
If I can save one horse I made a difference.

256. Ember's Chance

I want to make all vet offices in the state of Michigan to give treatment to an animal even if the owner is unable to pay at that moment. On July 17th my dog Ashley's Ember died of Organ Failure. We couldn't come up with pay till Friday (this was Monday).

She wouldn't have died if Vet offices would have given her the treatment with out pay until later. We had been searching for a vet office in our area to take her in for 3 days. She soon became lethargic and was unable to walk.

I soon (being only 15) begged my dad who is divorced from my mom to give us the money we needed for her to be treated. By the time that we got her to a vet she was far gone and we were forced to put her down.

So I ask that you sign to give all other animals the chance that Ember had lacked.

257. Allow Animals @ 684 Warden Ave

Re: Letter of removal of any and all animals from owners at 684 Warden Ave.

258. STOP EATING ANIMALS AND ANIMAL PRODUCTS

You cant be an animal lover and a non-vegetarian. This is for all the people who love animals to stop eating tham and animal products.

Animal lovers should be a voice for these voiceless innocent animals. Please discourage non vegetarians from eating animal meat and also try to make your pets vegetarians.

259. North Stonington Residents Against Zone/Regulation Change for Garden Court

Garden Court, LLC has submitted a Zone regulation change to build a complex of 408 one and two bedroom units in 17, four story residential buildings. Each building will house 24 units.

The location on Boombridge Rd., will not be able to handle the traffic that will be generated as it is a small, narrow, winding country road and to add an additional 400+ cars per day would make the road a hazardous one. The Lewis Farm constantly has farm equipment and often has the cows or bulls in the road moving them to different fields.

The farms have gotten tax breaks to keep the town rural and this would be located right near Lewis farm. This would take away from the historical farm and pose a hazard to the farm animals.

The additional polution created be automobile emmissions would also be unhealthy for the farm animals. People drive fast now down Boombridge (which is 35) an additional increase in travel would make this country road into a small highway.

260. Bring Back the Webkinz Unicorn

The webkinz unicorn has retired and I want to get it back.

Webkinz are stuffed animals that you can enter online and take care of them as
well as play with them. also as known for best selling stuffed animals in the
country.

Ganz,inc has discontinued the webinz unicorn and I want to get it
back.

261. Stop circus animal abuse toward elephants

Jordan once forced a tiger to perform while sick and waited a month to cure a tiger's fractured leg. He has a past of agressive behavior towards elephants and he gives dirty drinking water to elephants and does not give any veterinarian care towards the animals.

262. Ban all animals Circuses and all animal acts! speak for those who can't speak for themselves

Animals exploited for human entertainment face appalling treatment, pose threats to public health and safety, are currently not adequately regulated by state and federal laws, and do not conserve endangered species as is so often claimed.

I strongly believe that the standard industry tools and methods used to initially "break" and train animals throughout their lives, including the bullhook, chaining, food and water deprivation, use of whips, clubs and blunt objects, and electric prods, are incredibly inhumane. In addition, subjecting circus animals to travel for up to 11 months of the year for thousands of hours, over long distances, is unspeakably cruel. As you know, these animals may be chained while not performing, transported in vehicles that lack climate control, and forced to stand or lie in their own waste.

Wild animals used in public displays are dangerous — and even deadly. Recent incidents nationwide highlight the need for tighter restrictions on the exhibition of these animals. In addition to the many documented escapes and attacks by captive animals used for exhibition, elephants may carry tuberculosis (TB), and can infect humans with the bacterial disease.

Circuses are entertainment, not education. Watching wild animals perform unnatural tricks only teaches our children that it is acceptable to exploit animals; it does not teach respect for animals, nor does it help animals in the wild. Animal-free circuses and entertainment, such as Cole Brothers Circus and Cirque du Soleil, are growing as the use of wild animals becomes recognized as archaic, unsafe and inhumane.

For the sake of human safety and animal welfare, please stop using animals in Carson &Barnes,Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey.

People who support the circus should be ashamed of themselves. To sit there and watch these animals suffer a lot of them die and kill people. Do you blame them? I am so angry about this and how can you buy a show and sit there and watch them suffer?

263. US Government MUST be held responsible

Around May 15, 2007, the US Military was conducting routine exercises. At some point in these exercises a flare was discharged and a HUGE fire was started in the Pine Barrens of South Jersey. At this present time, 7 pm EST on May 16, 2007, over 13,000 acres of land and approximately 13 homes have been damaged or destroyed.

The government has given people some money to help them out but NO ONE from the government has stepped up to help the local animal shelters that are in the area of this enormous fire, which they (the government) has caused.

I, Kim Dermond, have taken this upon myself to help the animal shelters involved in this horrific fire. I am demanding that the US government help these shelters and the animals monetarily.

264. Remove Jeff Edmonds' Dog Lot

The dog lot located at 5206 Mockingbird Road has been a nuisance to the neighbors of Lynwood Lakes for more than three years. The "Coon hounds" being maintained and bred for sale at this location have been the source of hundreds of complaint calls to the residents of the property, the owners of the property, and both the Guilford County Sheriff's Department and the Guilford County Health Department.

A number of these complainants have medical problems and have suffered additional problems and resultant costs associated with ongoing noise. Their complaints and the citations that have resulted from them have had no influence on the behavior of the dogs owner who continues to refuse to control his animals.

We, therefore ask that the Guilford County Sheriff's Department use it's maximum efforts to bring to bear the force of the new animal control law passed by the county commissioners last year and force the closure of this business and that associated dog lot.

265. Stop using animals as testing tools

Im working on a project in my Launguage Arts class and i need to write a letter to a company to inform them that there sales will increase if they stop using animals as testing tools. I need all the info i can get. Please.

266. Stop Animal Testing Immediately

If you want to learn more about animal testing then you should go to www.google.com for a search engine. Or go to youtube.com and type in animal testing!

267. Harsher Sentences for Animal Killers

It is only recently that people are starting to be punished for killing animals, but at the moment these sentences are . . . lacking, they usually get a slap on the wrist and a fine.

Animals are living beings too and deserve as much respect as us humans. And think, if they kill animals they can kill children and adults alike.

268. Inadequate Zoological Park: Parque de las Ciencias, Bayamon, Puerto Rico

269. Make Pit Bulls Legal In Addison, IL!

Please! Help me make it legal to own a pit bull in the City of Addison, IL!

Pit bulls are one of the greatest dogs you could ever want! They are sweet, smart, loving, gentle, and most of all, NOT human aggressive!

Don't punish the breed, punish the deed!

According to studies, you are more likely to get attacked by a Collie (Lassie dog) then by a pit bull.

Don't judge a dog by it's looks! After all, how would you like it if the government decided to ban YOUR dog? Wouldn't you do anything to fight a law like that? Please help me rid Addison of the Pit Bull ban.

Thank you so much!

Here is a copy of the Addison village ordinance reguarding pitbulls:

"Sec. 4-27. Keeping of Dangerous, Vicious, or Wild/Feral Animals or Fowl. [back to top]

270. Shut down Dog-hostile site - www.hundefeind.de

A Petition to shut down www.hundefeind.de as it should be closed. It contains cooking prescriptions like one dogs cooks, offenses against dogs, and it is simply tasteless!!
