I have decided to create a topic for the petitions that I am passing on... most of mine are activist petitions so non-profit petitions, those from other sites such as change.org as EXTREMELY important as well. Several people have asked me how can they get credit and do groups with limited time. I also want to encourage others to do what Love and I have done... Have a thread of our own. So if you do just ask - and I WILL create it!!!! Thanks..
And if you haven't signed my petition yet, please do:
(I once took my cat to a vet who over-vaccinate/medicated her and she almost died)
For the rest of you who only want to post occasionally - put them in the latest Petition thread - right now that is "4".
(this one has a graphic photo)
All signed Valle, thank you...
All done Thank you Vallee.

Hi Ivonne - good to see you here this afternoon. We have a new friend, Peter, and also Ellen. I am so excited! Thanks for signing.
Linda and Peter... thanks tons!!!!! Without your guys help, these petitions wouldn't be signed by as many.
For those of you who are new - please check into my petition please.

This is from Love:
This is Urgent!!!
Please help me spread the word!!
The State is planning to kill 200,000 Canadian Geese.
Please view this video from CNN regarding Canada geese. Pass it on to all you know. It is the second video on this site:
Love Animals Too
Kudos once more to you Linda...
This new petition site is a little confusing...
(These last 2 are related - think I've seen before, but every petition makes a difference; they may just be worded differently)
(this is about the abandonment and maltreatment of animals)
Thanks Val!!! All SIGNED!!!
All up to date with petitions.Tankyou Val
Vallee there was 4 i could'nt sign as i'm not in US, Thank you.
All signed Val, much love, IVonne
Thank you all - most of you I can't send a green star and have to go so . Will post more tomorrow. Was in the ER most of the day today with my husband - all OK now thanks. But too tired and have to water the plants and walk the dog, then crash... Thank you again.
Well here are some more petitions, but I can tell you the credits are all screwy - mine went up, then down and ended up with none. Wrote a long post to the Help group. Hopefully they'll figure it out. For new members especially - we had a
problem 6 months ago and they got it figured out. Care2 has a very small paid staff and quite a few volunteers - people like you and I - so let's have some patience. There is a petition to change the petition site I will post as well. Thanks for hanging in there.

OK - they are working on the petition site and the credits so keep signing people!!!
Signed all of them Val, except the second one...it comes out paged moved!
All signed apart from second one. Thanks Vallee.
Ditto, and I was instantly credited for the poultry one but not the others. Obviously they're chicken lovers at Care2.
I take that back. So did Care2, just deducting my 50 points.
I know they are working on it and we must be patient. They jumped my credits up yesterday for the petitions but nothing else. I have one here - will post more later and I admit I didn't get any credits for this one but was forwarded to me so I assumed activist but unsure. Will check into the group help sites after I chack out your hangman answers. Thanks for your patience all!
There's the news and the petition here.
Here are 4 more. I checked with Care2 and they say that the credits are in their database (same thing happened 6 months ago).. So I asked when we would see them.
All I can say is hang in there. I'll see if I can copy and post and paste it here for you all. Thanks for continuing to suport our animals.
(this is basically about pasing laws to give animals the same rights as humans in the situation of no abuse and being reated fairly-
only sign if you feel comfortable).
Here's the post from Care2:
This is just a quick note to let you know that we think we've identified all of the bugs stemming from the changeover to the new Petition Site, and our engineers are in the process of squishing them.
And more importantly, the new site is much more robust than the last version. I don't want to jinx things, but the stuff under the hood is vastly improved and will let us do some great things in the future.
And yes, that means there are a few more new features on the way. Hopefully, "soonish".
P.S. You can rest assured that Butterfly credits do not just disappear, and that they're safe. Sometimes the different servers used to display the site get a little out of sync, but the information itself is safely stored in our databases.
Better late than never... finally finished the painting. Now a week of appointments... exhausted.... Have a great evening!
So tired put in wrong thread at first.
Thanks Val. All signed in the other thread and received all the credits.
Have a good day
THought the credits were back - just give Care2 a little time.... they DO Care 2!
Thanks for Signing all - this evening will wotk on more - a doctor's appt for my husband today (every day this week) and errands. Need to get to the chiro or the aqua massage today or tomorrow too. I really appreciate all you do in this group

All done except the non profit ones showing page not found. Thank you Vallee. Glad you got the paiting done, come and do mine if you want, hoping all is well with your hubby.
Linda - thanks - don't know why they didn't show up - will try again sometime...
Ivonne thanks also ...
THIS IS A STORY TOLD FROM THE DOG'S POINT OF VIEW REALLY TOUCHING AND MOVING, PLEASE READ AND FORWARD
As per Linda, I couldn't access several. Also there's still work to be done on the petition site. They have my name and email but each time I have to change the country, which is set on US, and insert address and post code, all of which takes time and makes me
Hopefully they'll get it right. I am sorry you are having problems. I am not doing anything different. Will try a few now and see what happens. Getting late for me... and the computer.

Thanks Val, all petitions signed!
Thanks Ivonne. Have a nice evening!
From a friend:
my new petition this really ticks me off--using live dogs for reasearch after 30 years,plz sign and frwd thanx
Please be sure to check out Love's petitions and the topic Animal stories/News as well please! Thanks.
Having real trouble with the petitions this afternoon and have contacted The Petition site about some of my concerns - mainly that there are "many" that say pets in all these different languages, there are quite a few that have nothing to do with animals and I want to know how we can see the profile of the author to know if it is a scam. If anyone has any info on these questions/concerns, please let me know thanks. Choice which ones you want to sign - I skipped over many.
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/757/198/063/ (animal abuse on entertainment TV in India - not sure I trust these that say :takeaction)

Good Morning from mine
Good evening... a little late, but better late than never:
All signed. Thanks Val.
Thanks Val - waiting for electrician - so will post more later. You guys are fantastic!
Well electrician coming early tomorrow morning and then errands, but here are tonights:
All signed Thank you Vallee. i hope the electrician does'nt keep you waiting all day like they do here. Have a good day and stay safe.
Hello! Just signed the petitions above but I could not sign the last one. Have no idea what the problem is. Will try later. Thanks!
Thanks guys - electrician suppose to come this morning now I appreciate your signing.
Did get a post from Val M. Which I appreciate it - here it is...
I signed your petitions this morning except the one above as I am concerned about the veracity of ''Elephants need Saveing'', and felt I should keep you informed as it went out under your Petitions.
I have sent an email asking to have the source verified because at NO time would we here in SA kill all our elephants let alone go through the african continent killing all the other elephants that still exist. We revere our wildlife and do all we can to keep it intact. Besides, really, the African continent is huge. How could we possible do such a thing. I will let you know if I receive a reply.
Good Morning from my little corner of the world.
Am starting to post some "human rights" petitions as well so may not have 5 daily but here are 2:
I believe I've signed them all. Most or all have been posted on facebook.
Glad to know they are in several places on the net. Most of the ones I post are Care2 but if I forward them on - they are from all over. Thanks for all you do.
May have to start another thread soon..
Some of you are keeping me busy posting from my forwarded e-mails - took me 1 1/2 hrs this morning... But I appreciate it all.... Ana Liza and George got yours all posted this morning.
Members, don't forget to look under Animal Stories/news for more things to sign....
Both Signed Thank you Vallee.
All petitions signed Val, much love, Ivy
Thanks Ivy - will post more later!
All signed, Thank you Vallee.
Action taken! but some I cant signed,cause I cant get the site..???...
I try It Later again.,to signed the rest of the petition!
THANK YOU VAL!!!
Thank you AnaLiza - don't know why sometimes the sites don't work. Haven't even had a chance to check mine - someone said they couldn't get to it anymore....
Friday evening in the US..
Friday evening is Saturday morning here.
Signed. For quite a few I signed yesterday the butterflies have as usual fluttered by.
I've tried to sign as many as possible today, will work my way through them. Can I ask a question? Is there a policy on this site where you can only earn so many butterfly points per day? Mine seem to count up to a certain amount then stop.
I don't think there are for a day - but there are for categories. Id you look under "How to earn credits" they now are explained. For example - only 5 x for ACTIVIST (most of mine are and if not I state it), 10 x for posting in a group etc. Hope that helps. Sometimes, as you can see from George's comments - Care2 has some problems with credits. I used to really follow them when I began Care2 but have stopped now though do keep an eye on the when it's blatant. Sometimes they show up later??? Actually Care2 was started as an activist site and credits are fairly new. But whenever they try and make something better due to the # of people joining daily, there seems to be a glitch. There are groups that you can go to when you have these problems and see if anyone else does - and you may hear the word "latency" often - that's when posts don't always show up.
Honestly, in my opinion only, Care2 does a great job with their limited paid staff and my friends have become as important as being an activist, though I DO get aggravated at times like when the petitions where all the same. I still don't have time to look at all the news would like, but such is life. I can give you the links or just ask. I don't mind researching things.
Thanks for all you do Claire! Will post more later.
All signed Thank you Vallee. When signing a petion look at the number 50 at top right of petition, if the number is in grey you don't get your points if it's in green you do. Someone told me you can only earn 500 points in a day i don't know if it's true or not. Have a good weekend everyone.
Well I didn't know about the colors but yes - you can only get 500 credits daily and they must be activist petitions - otherwise they will be in gray.... here are 3 - know I used to do 5 but trying to do some human rights one's as well in different sites. Hope you all don't mind.
Thank you - have to work on the shed tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow so may be sparse for a day or 2 but will be here because it's to hot to be outside all day!
All of them signed Val, thanks you for all the hard work you do here, I know you have a lot on your plate with your husband doctors, etc. like me...much love, Ivonne
Someone a while back said they couldn't get to my petition. I'm slow but just checked it and I haven't closed it so you should be able to. Therefore, if anyone hasn't signed it, please try to - thanks.
(it's about over-vaccinating/medicating our pets)
I think they do a great job on the site. I don't mind being patient until they sort things out. I hope you get plenty of signatures for your petition Val
Thanks Claire - we're able to find it? Today I have to start putting up a shed so won't be back until later. Hope I can get the help to put most of it together today! Tomorrow is Monday and most people have to wok!
Never made it back last night - exhausted but should have time this afternnon - thank you for all your patience!
All Signed!!!Thanks Faith!!!
All Signed Thank you. Hope you got a bit of rest today Vallee.
Yes Linda - I rested - hehe - I started painting one bathroom which is why these are wo late. Tomorrow will finish. Please, everyone, don't forget to look at AnaLiza's news/stories - there are things to sign there too - posted all AnaLiza that you sent me.... here they are for tonight.
You can still sign... but am closing this topic....
