My friends,

This is Suga.

He is a 7 years old white and orange male cat that lives in The Bronx (NY). He has been with his guardian since he was born, but now she has a kid who is allergic, and due to that he needs a new home. She is worried about it specially because he is declawed (unfortunately) and she fears for his safety. Suga is also neutered, and according to his guardian, purrs all day and "loves to be loved".

Would you help him, please?

If you or someone you know is willing to adopte this sweet little one, please contact me here on Care2. If you can't adopt him, you may be able to share his story with your friends.

Thank you so much for caring!

Stand Against Police Violence in Brazil

Please, friends, sign this petition. You probably have seen some of what's going on in Brazil, the country where I came from. Unescrupulous politicias keep stoling the tax-payers money and very little is left to invest on health and education. Finally, Brazilian people had enough of it and protesters stared to take the streets of Brazil.

They need support. They need the whole world to know that they are not vandals and how much the World Cope have costed to them. They need the world to know that they are peaceful people who have to fight for its diginity.

Please, support Brazilian people. Sign the petition and boycote the World Cope and spread the word!!

Thank you so much!!

Please, friends, help this poor dog. This is so unfair!

Petition: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/234/183/724/blind-deaf-dog-kicked-out-of-dog-park/

Here is a second link that a friend sent me:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/594/116/952/deaf-blind-13-year-old-dog-kicked-out-of-his-favorite-park-of-one-year-small-dogs-only/

Thank you.

"Billy the dog doesn't play rough. He's older, blind, and deaf, which means that dogs his size tend to bully and scare him. So for several years, his owner has been taking him to the "small or timid dog" section of the local dog park.

Last week, though, a park ranger told Billy's owner that Billy had to play with the big dogs or get out. He said that Billy's section of the park was for small dogs only, and that it didn't matter that Billy's disability meant that he couldn't protect himself if any dogs his own size decided to get rowdy.

Billy was never any trouble to the dogs in the park. To a dog that is deaf or blind, changing things to them is like changing their entire world.

Ask the Santa Barbara County Parks Office to let Billy and his owner back into the part of the park where he felt and was safe"

Save Kerser from being euthanized!

Original petition: http://www.causes.com/actions/1753888-save-kerser-from-being-euthanized

"Being a curious puppy, Kerser got out of the house and found a way through the fence into the neighbour's back yard. The neighbour then called the RSPCA to take the puppy away. Jade had not yet had a chance to register Kerser but had planned to do so in the next 24 hours. This oversight has resulted in Kerser, who looks like but is NOT a Pit Bull, being scheduled to be euthanized June 3rd, 2013 at 5 PM based solely on his looks. At the last moment, Kerser received a temporary stay of execution while his case is once again reviewed but his life still hangs in the balance".

Thank you!

Please, read the story, sign the petition and help spread the word:

https://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/50182/p/salsa/web/common/public/content?content_item_KEY=10987

One afternoon in 2008, Janice Howe—a Dakota Indian—waited at the bus stop for her grandchildren to come home from school. They never arrived.
           
That afternoon, a social worker had taken Janice’s grandchildren. They were driven to a white foster family hundreds of miles away. The reason stated in the case file: a “rumor” that Janice’s daughter, Erin Yellow Robe, had been using drugs. She hadn’t. To this day, Janice's daughter has never’t been charged or arrested for drugs—or anything else.
           
For the next year and a half, Janice fought to get her grandchildren back. She called the state’s director of social services. She wrote letters to the Governor. Finally, she convinced her tribe’s council to threaten the state with kidnapping. A few weeks later, her grandchildren were returned...on a “trial basis.”
           
Last fall, Janice’s story was told in a NPR investigative-series by award-winning journalist Laura Sullivan. If you haven’t listened to the story, it’s a must hear. (http://lakota.cc/HfuqYj)
           
Since 2005, the Lakota People’s Law Project has been working with hundreds of families who share Janice’s story. But they haven’t all been so lucky. Over the past decade, the State Department of Social Services has taken more than 5,000 Native American children from their homes. It’s easy to see why—for every Lakota child in state-sponsored care, South Dakota receives thousands of dollars a year in federal monies.
           
What’s the good news? We can do something about it!
           
The Lakota People’s Law Project is currently compiling court-admissible evidence and preparing a federal civil rights action on behalf of South Dakota’s native families. In April, we helped Janice Howe host a forum to teach parents and relatives about their rights under the Indian Child Welfare Act. More than 150 hundred people attended the meeting.
           
To be successful in this work, we need to build a chorus of support across the country. We hope that you will add your voice to this effort. You can start by sending a letter of support to Janice and other Lakota grandmothers like her. (http://lakota.cc/HlY6OR)
           
You can also share Janice’s story with your friends and help us grow our network of supporters. (http://lakota.cc/H9U6BF)
           
Together, we can help the help the Lakota reclaim their rights and get their children back!
           
As they say in Lakota&mdashilamaya—thank you.

Executive Director

Please, sign and call your senators!

"An anti-wildlife and anti-conservation bill, HR 2578, (oddly titled "Conservation and Economic Growth Act"), seeks to overturn protections of the Endangered Species Act, the Wilderness Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.

One provision in the bill would be especially disasterous to the Arizona jaguar and may mean extinction of the big cat. The bill seeks to waive Endangered Species Act protections within 100 miles of our borders.

Jaguars are known to be far ranging. Movements of 500 miles have been recorded. The Arizona Jaguar (Panthera onca arizonensis) ranges from Southern Arizona and New Mexico to Sonora, Mexico. Removing protections near the border would cause a crises for this species, as well as other wildlife species that travel between the two countries in seach of food prey and of mates.

For jaguars to thrive or even to persist in Arizona, a few modest needs must be met. They must be protected from being killed. They must have an adequate prey base. And they must have movement corridors to connect with source populations in northern Mexico".
