Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

New York animal shelter Angel's Gate, founded in 1993 by Susan Marino, has a history of extreme animal neglect resulting in diseases and death. An undercover investigation of the facility exposed animal abuse on video, including animals being denied food and water, offered rancid meat, dead animal bodies left among live animals for days, animals with treatable infections and wounds being denied medication and veterinary care and animals confined to filthy, excrement-caked cribs.

Recently, a young paraplegic St. Bernard named Casey died at Angel's Gate after suffering a lengthy urinary tract infection. An undercover investigation found Casey covered in her own waste and left in a filthy crib without access to water.

These animal abuses have gone on far too long and should not be allowed to continue. Please sign the petition to remove Angel's Gate's status as a nonprofit corporation and remove and help the hundreds of animals that remain at the shelter.

Joseph Kony deserves to be arrested tomorrow. He\\\'s spent two decades committing horrific crimes against humanity. However, if he were to be arrested, would the children be safe? Not in the least. So, what can you do? 1. Only buy fair trade ...
