1. Fight the Castle Rock pit bull ban

It's a shame we can live in such a nice place and one thing such as a pit bull ban can change everything. For those of you who know, pit bulls are known to be the second greatest family dog behind the golden retriever based on information from the ukc, and adba along with other organizations. Reputation says these dogs are killers because they have "lock jaw" for anyone who can get on a computer and do research, there is no such thing as lock jaw. It is simply they have strong jaws. If you have every been bitten by a turtle of lizzard, they don't like to let go either, are they illegal? Also known to the ukc registration they are people pleasers and with the right owner they will rarely show aggression and at that typically only to estranged animals. Help us save our dogs

2. Help the Barrel Dogs of Ikaria

On the Greek island of Iakria dogs are used as tools, instead of cattle grids, to restrict the movement of sheep. Forced to live chained up on one metre chains, with old rusty barrels for kennels, these dogs live down deserted roads and tracks rarely seeing anyone.

The barrels do not provide suitable shelter in inclement weather and they are like ovens during the summer months providing absolutely no relief from the scorching sun. To add to their misery, they have some dirty water to drink and inappropriate food, often just bread and bones. They are all young dogs craving human companionship. It is alleged that many of the dogs die before they are one year old.

Reports from tourists hiking on the island describe how these dogs are overjoyed when they receive a kind word and a gentle touch and how harrowing it is for the hikers when they continue their trek, to hear the dogs bark, cry and strain at the end of their chains as if saying, “Please come back. I only want some love and attention”.
