START A PETITION

May 4, 2012
Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Petition
Location: United States

Taiwan has earned a bad reputation for cruelty toward animals and leniency toward clear animal rights violations. On May 2, 2012, animal rights activists in Taipai proposed an independant agency dedicated to protecting the rights of animals.

Currently, the Council of Agriculture (CoA) handles animal rights protection as well as livestock, foresty and fishing issues. Unfortunately, having the same agency handle livestock and animal protections creates a conflict of interest. A separate agency with enough resources and funds to handle animal rights issues would ensure better treatment for the country's animals.

Please sign the petition to support Taipei animal rights activists in their mission to create an independent agency devoted to animal protection in Taiwan.

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 ...
