{ else }   Alert: please help stop animal cruelty on factory farms  
Focus:Animal Welfare
Action Request:Petition
Location:California, United States
Animals on factory farms are horribly abused and live their whole lives in misery and suffering.  They are by far the greatest number of abused animals in our country.   They are housed in cages, crates, or pens in which they can not turn  around or lie down, often in their own waste.  This is bad for the animals, but also bad for the environment, bad for the workers, and bad for the consumer.  YOU CAN HELP!   

The Humane Society of the US, along with other national and local groups, is supporting a ballot initiative in California to outlaw 3 of the cruelest confinement structures for chickens, pigs, and cows on factory farms.

We must gather 650,000 signatures from registered California voters by mid- February. We need volunteers to help with signature gathering, office work, etc. Please turn your compassion into action; use your power to change conditions for these animals now!

Please call 415 772 0952
email nora@humanecalifornia.org
and visit us at http://humanecalifornia.org/volunteer/index.php

Thank you!

Blog: Politics and Animals: Sign the petition!  

Think politics are separate from animal issues? Think you can save and help animals without politics? Unfortunately, you’d be wrong. Policy is how we get things done in a democracy.  So if you refuse to acknowledge policy, you’re essentially refusing to help animals and further enabling the forces that threaten animals, both domestic and wild.  

I know how many animal lovers and activists hate politics, and believe me it’s not a pretty thing most of the time. And I know how many of my friends here on Care2 write back to me expressing how they’re uninterested n politics whenever I send around invitations to progressive political groups. But the fact of the matter is, as I demonstrate in the summary reports below at Election 2008, is that policy is the only way to make change. Political officials decide whether animals survive or flourish. Like it or not, the people we elect have the final say.

How can we change that? Vote and elect officials who promote pro-animal legislation. Get rid of the ones who vote against animals. You’ll see which party is which after reading the results.  

Where do you think petitions go? Where do you think all of our favorite animal and environmental non-profit orgs go to lobby on an issue? Politicians.  

Be heard. Write them and let them know you’re watching. But most importantly, vote!   

Presidential Candidates and Animals
Congress and Animals

Sign the petition:

I will personally deliver it to the campaigns of the official presidential candidates.

{ else }   Message: Please Help Me Bring Littlebug Home  
Hi, I am embracing a horrific trauma in my life that has seen three anniversaries since April 15, 2003 in San Diego Family Court and find myself in need of friends like you for your generous support.

You see due to judicial crimes to me, I can't contact my Granddaughter and naturally this hurts me very much but there is another life this loss of contact has emotionally abused as well, and that would be, "Mama Guinea" Littlebug's guinea pig. I hate to see Mama Guinea grieving unnecessarily for her master Littlebug, and you could help me change that.....

I would like for you to sign the following petitions in CARE 2.
I am trying to get District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis to do something about perjury  and religious hate-crimes in San Diego Family Courts so I can have a fair hearing and bring my Granddaughter I have raised for seven years back home to Missouri to reunite with Mama Guinea.

I am also going to approach the senate to change some laws In California that are by the people & pets and for the people & pets so please sign the following two petitions in the two links below.

Thank You from Mama Guinea and Littlebug, the links are below. Please pass it around to your friends, family, etc..
Jacklyn
