MONTHLY CAUSE UPDATES
Indiana allows private ownership of exotic animals like lions, tigers, cougars, ocelots, wolves, bears, alligators, and nonhuman primates. Exotic animals belong in their natural habitat. If individuals among us feel the need to confine these wild animals for their own entertainment, then we need laws to stop them.
Sign the petition calling for an exotic pet ban in Indiana and share. With 544 signatures, we’re half way there!
BAD RAP ’s Donna Reynolds and Tim Racer turned the Michael Vick dog-fight tragedy into a hard-earned opportunity to dispel the myths surrounding loyal, loving pit bull and pit bull mix breeds. The Honest Kitchen, makers of dehydrated, human-grade whole foods for dogs and cats, will donate a percentage of online store profits to BAD RAP this month.
That donation would have doubled had THK reached 40K Facebook fans in March. BAD RAP will still get their original donation from THK and you can still help BAD RAP…
- Listen to and share Bark Out Loud Weekly’s interview “After Vick: What Have We Learned?” to learn more about BAD RAP and the amazing work they do.
- Visit BADRAP.org, and follow BAD RAP on Facebook and Twitter.
Every sentient being deserves humane treatment. Farm Sanctuary works to protect farm animals from cruelty, to inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and to promote compassionate living. Through shelters in Watkins Glen, New York and Orland, California, Farm Sanctuary also provides lifelong care for hundreds of rescued farm animals.
While many commented and shared on Facebook, action is still necessary.
- Please join Farm Sanctuary’s Advocacy Campaign Team (ACT) for alerts on ways to help in your area.
- Send this letter to Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, asking for stricter regulations in slaughterhouses and production facilities.
- And visit the Activist Toolkit.
It’s never too late. The animals always need you.
LET US CELEBRATE YOU!
See you next week!
BtC4animals.com never asks you to spend a cent, just a few minutes of your time.
