From Anneke -
I am a frequent visitor to your country and support the tourism
industry. The reason I travel to Turkey is because of its tolerance,
compassion and sophisticated view regarding so many important issues.
Most impressive of all, is the recent progress that has been made by
caring individuals in the private, charitable animal protection
implementation of the 2004 national spay/neuter and release law, the
animal protection groups have made your country the leader and a model
of the region.
Please do not end the progress that is being made!
street dogs because there has NOT YET been enough training of local
veterinarians in proper surgical techniques, and there has not yet
been enough training and financial support to build HUMANE shelters --
which are necessary to making this effort a success!
The private charitable organizations are continuing to help train and
support the improvement of the public shelters, but the municipalities
are not yet ready to assume this responsibility.

The native dogs in your country are beautiful, unique [genetically]
and a national treasure.

Ben ulkenizi cok sik ziyaret eden ve turizm sektorunuzu destekleyen
bir kisiyim. Turkiye?ye seyahat etmemin nedeni, ulkenizin bircok
konudaki sabirli, merhametli ve olgun yaklasimidir. En etkileyici olan
da hayvan koruma organizasyonlarindaki insanlarin cabalari sonucunda
bu alanda kaydedilmis olan gelismedir. Hayvan koruma gruplari, 2004
yilinda cikan ?kisirlastir/asilat/yerine birak? yasasinin
uygulanmasini saglamaya calisarak Turkiye?yi bolgesindeki lider ulke
Lutfen, kaydedilen bu gelismeye son vermeyin. Henuz kamu
veterinerleri operasyon teknikleri konusunda yeterli egitimi almadan
ve insani barinaklar yapmak icin yeterli egitim ve finansal kaynak
olmadan, kanunda sokak hayvanlarinin toplanmasini emreden bir
degisiklik yapmak icin cok erkendir.
Hayvan koruma alaninda faaliyet gosteren sivil toplum kuruluslari,
kamu barinaklarinin daha iyi kosullara kavusmasi icin yardimci ve
destek olmaya calismaktadirlar. Fakat ne yazik ki, yerel yonetimler
henuz bu sorumlulugu almaya hazir degildir. Sozkonusu kanun
degisikligi yuzlerce kopegin aci cekmesine ve gereksiz yere olmesine
Ulkenizdeki yerli kopek irklari genetik olarak biriciktir, guzeldir ve
milli servettir. Lutfen sokak hayvanlarini koruyun ve onlarin yanlis
yakalama, gaddarca hapsedilme ve uzak ve yasamalari icin uygun olmayan
alanlara atilmalarina izin vermeyin.

Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners will vote on Oct. 10 whether to continue to allow low-cost spay/neuter clinics to continue to operate in the state.
A proposed rule change by the board would prevent non-veterinarians from hiring veterinarians or veterinary technicians to operate a veterinary facility. This rule change would likely shut down the state’s non-profit spay/neuter clinics, which employ veterinarians to provide spay/neuter services. There are four spay/neuter clinics in the state, including the Wiregrass Spay and Neuter Clinic in Dothan.
A bill that would have allowed spay/neuter clinics to hire veterinarians to oversee spay-neuter services, and some routine veterinary care such as vaccinations, and testing for heartworm and leukemia, passed both houses of the Alabama Legislature, and was approved by a conference committee, but House Speaker Paul Hubbard, R-Auburn, never brought the bill up for a final vote, effectively killing it.
Barbara Seaman, a board member of the non-profit Wiregrass Spay and Neuter Clinic, said shutting down the spay neuter clinics would be a disservice to the community. Seaman said many low-income residents who ordinarily would not bring their pets in for spaying and neutering and basic shots would be unable to do so without the support of a low-cost clinic.
Seaman said closing the clinic could result in a overpopulation and an abundance of feral animals running loose without shots. Seaman said this could cost municipalities throughout the state in higher animal control costs.
Since opening in 2009, the clinic has performed more than 20,000 spay/neuter surgeries.
We politely urge you to keep the low cost spay neuter clinics opened; it's the most humane, animal friendly solution possible and will save costs on the long term.
Thank you for your time.
I'm writing today because I found your name on the University of
Florida's special bragging list- the "honor roll" of generous donors.
I want you to know I'm going to ask my friends and your supporters in
the coming weeks to withhold their donations to you until you no
longer support the University of Florida!
No place that does archaic experiments on animals can "clean up their
act"- they need to ban animal testing completely at their school. The
whole country of Canada has recently committed to this ban in all of
their universities, so a single university has no excuse. There's no
work that you do that can make up for supporting an institution using
living, feeling, innocent animals for agonizing experiments. I think
the only way for you to keep your "good name" is to stop donating
money to the University of Florida until they ban primate testing.
Here's a link to the UF website where you are honored for contributing
to a university mired in controversy about their animal experiments.
SEE THE LATEST FROM A UF WHISTLEBLOWER:
- UF CHOOSES primate torture, most times using 2 and 3 year old
primate toddlers, when there are thousands of non-animal alternatives
available to teach and use right
- UF broke the law, was sued and lost to activists when they refused
to submit their veterinarian records for the primates they have hurt.
The bottom line is that's what those involved with archaic animal
research will be able to say- it must be OK since The National
Geographic Society gives to UF. I think NGS should pull their money
from UF until UF bans animal testing. PLEASE help me ensure that your
donations don't become UF blood money by contacting UF today. Your
letter can make a difference as a voice for innocent animals trapped
in a brutal laboratory.
Thank you for your immediate attention to these innocent suffering animals,

URGENT! SIGN & SHARE! SENIOR DOG BAILY NEEDS A SECOND CHANCE! HELP SAVE HIS LIFE! / Petition / Change.Org
Michelle - 5 days ago - change.org
His current owner is a vulnerable adult with learning difficulties and an alcohol problem. Bailey thought it was his job to look after her when she was in a vulnerable state and had been drinking. On two occasions he protected her when he thought she was at risk. This surmounted to him nipping people on two occasions on one of these occasions he was wearing a muzzle that was damaged. After the first incidence Bailey was put on an order to be muzzled and on a lead at all times. Because his owner failed to adhere to the order he nipped a second person and was removed later by the police. During his removal from the house when his owner was not there he showed no aggression toward the police and did not resist arrest.
Bailey is currently in police kennels and has been found a rescue space with an elderly responsible couple away from his owner. They are prepared to do whatever the judge says to save him and let him have a final year of life without him worrying about protecting his vulnerable owner. Bailey is an old man and he is crippled with arthritis, he cannot walk far at all. He has been sentenced to a destruction order and this is going to final appeal in July 2012 although we are still waiting for a court date. Please will you sign the petition to ask the Judge to let Bailey live and let him go to his new home where he can eventually die in peace?
Bailey has been in kennels since January and his health is deteriorating. He is not in good shape, he is just an old dog. He has passed all his behavioural tests with both the police and the behaviourist."

I just want to share this update on the Thailand dogs, saved from the dog meat trade; International Organizations didn't show 'much' interest in helping these poor animals, too many of them died anyway...Very sad, it ment such great news at first....Here is the link, the video doesn't contain shocking images... Please share, Soi Dog Foundation is desperately looking for medical and financial assistance, and volunteers!

sorry, wrong Governor's mailaddress!
1. Csll and email Wyoming Governor Matt Mead.
In this truly massive state, there are fewer than 350 beautiful and amazing wolves. Too many cattle ranchers and sport killers can't stop demonizing and lying about them.
Wyoming has approximately 1,300,000 cows and calves. The state has barely 500,000 human residents. In 2011, Ken Salazar's US Fish & Wildlife Service confirmed a mere 35 cattle losses attributed to wolves. That's the total for the entire state! 35 cattle. Period. These statistics are similar in the nearby states of Idaho and Montana. Tens of thousands of cattle die every year due to weather, disease, birth complications and eating poison plants, for which ranchers receive zero compensation. Depridation by wolves and other wildlife is relatively minimal! Not only that, but ranchers are fully compensated for the few confirmed losses by wolves, including some they lie about. Get it? It's simply about "control", about a perverse desire by heartless and violent American wildlife haters to kill, to kill innocent wolves for no reason other than "tradition".
Regarding elk, that are hunted for food and sport, the state of Wyoming's own wildlife division reports that there are more elk in Wyoming today than existed BEFORE wolves returned to the state. Elk may be harder to hunt as they are now more wary with wolves back on the land where they belong, but the elk are healthier and more numerous with wolves in Wyoming! And similarly, according to each state's own wildlife division statistics in Idaho and Montana, elk are more numerous, with wolves roaming free in those states, too! Again, wolf demonization and persecution is not about truth and justice, it's about "control" and "tradition" for these American wolf killers.
The United States keeps telling itself what a great nation it is. It will not be a truly great nation until the perverse and violent American "tradtion" of persecuting and slaughtering the continent's native wolves and wildlife is finally and permanently stopped. The United States will be on its way to being the great nation we say we are, only when the mindless torture and mass killing of America's innocent wildlife stops. It's long overdue that our supposed leaders heard and acted upon the humane, respectful and wildlife-loving majority opinion that has evolved in the hearts and minds of decent Americans. We are demanding that America finally and
It has come to our attention a demonstration was recently held to assist you and the council in making a decision concerning the discontinuation of the use of the gas chamber to 'euthanize' unwanted companion animals that are either not claimed or are sickly or not deemed appropriate for adoption.
Many people think that animals quietly go to sleep and die in shelter gas chambers.
Historically, this inhumane method of killing was used by the Nazis, and to this day is not allowed even for the punishment of our most severe serial killers.
What Animal Organizations Say About Gassing ?
American Humane Association has stated, …euthanizing shelter animals by carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide is inhumane to the animal and harmful to humans.
The Humane Society of the United States stated, carbon monoxide (CO) gas is, without question, an unacceptable method of euthanasia in states where shelters can legally obtain and administer sodium pentobarbital.
The Association of Shelter Veterinarians has stated, ...the use of carbon monoxide for individual or mass companion animal euthanasia in shelters is unacceptable due to significant humane, operational and safety concerns.
This outdated and cruel practice needs to stop.
Also, consider implementing no-kill by working on spay/neuter, educating the public on responsible pet ownership, and proving low-cost vetting and food assistance for those in need, so it will be easier for owners to keep their pets.
The South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks Commission has proposed new hunting plans that may decimate the state's only colony of mountain lions. We've submitted our petition to stop the hunt but we still need you to send an email.
Your email needs to be sent by noon tomorrow, Wednesday, October 3rd. Please add your voice to all those who have already spoken up for America's lion by taking action today!

Dear Committee Members,
We urge you to support amendments to Ireland’s new Animal Welfare Act to outlaw the horrific practices of fox dig-outs, fox hunting, and hare coursing.
We have received information on these and are appalled that such cruelty is still permitted by law in Ireland.
Thank you Val

As a company that claims to achieve excellence and reliability in drug research, I am surprised to learn that you contract experiments inside a laboratory that has had their license revoked and exposed falsifying test data for clients.
I would like to use this opportunity to request that you cease your contracts with this horrendous laboratory and invest in more reliable sources of data research.
THERE ARE NON ANIMAL ALTERNATIVES TO CANCER/BREAST CANCE THAT YOU COULD BE DONATING TO!
How can you donate to animal research facilities when this type of research is available? Shameful!

Noted- thanks Val
THANKS - FYI - I am totally frustrated with C2 right now - so may take a few days off -
No posts this AM due to C2 issues - am told I need IE8 but no longer available for Windows 7 and Firefox not working at all - C2 says they are working on it - right! So for now no emoticons and cannot reply to messages - unsure about other things!
Noted & signed. Hope Care2 gets things working proparly cause it's really fustrating. If it's fustrating for me being a mere member I can imagine how fustrating it must be for you and others woking so hard to keep these petitions & group going. I have been denied my password, to sign petition or sign the same petitions over & over and only one or no signature showing. Take care & Thanks Val.
Sorry for venting here on your thread. Wanted to express myself on feeling for you.
I wish more people complain to Care2, then maybe they will do something about it. Don't bet on it!
I was ready to quit the other day but they got it working - it id frustrating Marian - things have to go quickly to get it all done - I run other groups too and very difficult when there are issues - so don't worry about venting!
Ice on foot again - turning yellow again just after doing a little on my foot.
I am disappointed with Montana FWP’s 2012-13 wolf hunting/trapping plans for many reasons. Although you plan to revisit the progress of the hunt in December, I want a hunt-trap-free buffer now to surround Yellowstone National Park, specifically in management units 310, 320 and 390. Those units account for a large area of southern Montana from the Absaroka Mountains to the Madison Range and north as far as Great Falls and Lewistown.
For the past 5 years, the wolf population in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem has stabilized at around 130. Trapping to kill 60% of wolves could decimate the greater Yellowstone population and possibly replicate the 2009 elimination of the Cottonwood Pack.
Healthy wolf populations generate revenue locally and provide jobs in the Greater Yellowstone region. Does Montana truly wish to ignore the economic advantages of the largest growing industry in the region – wolf watching – to appease narrow special interests with a clear political agenda? I expect my comment to receive prompt consideration and result in the revision of your wolf plan.

Millions of sheep suffer the horrifying pain of mutilation known as "mulsing" every year. The unimaginable painful surgical proceedure involves cutting large strips of flesh from the hind legs of lambs who are about 4 weeks old- mulsing is done to create scars and a smooth skin that cannot harbour flies. Anaesthesia and painkillers are not required during or after the procedure.
The selective breeding of Marino sheep is more commonly practiced in Australia; the world's leading sheep producer and exporter with a national flock of an estimated 135 million sheep, but is practiced globally.
Marino sheep are more susceptible to flystike infestations. Flies are attracted to the moisture and urine that collects within the unna
Flies are attracted to the moisture and urine that collects within the unnatural folds of skin in Marino sheep and lay their eggs.
The most effective way to stop flystrike is to breed sheep who have less wrinkly skin.
I ask the Australian wool industry to transition to a less wrinkly breed and stop this barbaric, inhumane, act of cruelty of mutilating defenseless lambs.
Thank you for posting my words, directly from my petition Val.
