 Please take a moment and sign this urgent petition. Florida's panthers will soon be extinct if we do not take a stand to protect their habitat. More than 9 have been killed this year!
 In case you do not know there are only a few real Floridan panthers left. Each year the government of Florida is allowing more and more building to occur and this pushes the panthers out into populated territory thus getting killed by motorists.
 The Florida Panther group here on care2 has worked endless hours to campaign and contact the people of the Fish and wildlife groups, the governor and anyone who can help to make a difference. Now they need your help to save these beautiful cats!

 

YOUR SIGNATURE IS VITAL AS IT WILL HELP TO SHOW THAT SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE TO SAVE THESE FEW PANTHERS THAT ARE LEFT. PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

CELEBRATE ASPCA DAY AND GO ORANGE FOR ANIMALS ON APRIL 10!!!

The ASPCA is the oldest humane organization in the Western Hemisphere, and we’re more dedicated than ever to our work preventing animal cruelty and finding homes for millions of animals all across the country. But we couldn’t do it without the support of compassionate citizens like you—so please join us on April 10 (our birthday!) in celebration of ASPCA Day. Show your love of animals—and your support for the mission of the ASPCA—by dressing yourself, your pet (even your community!) in orange on April 10. Whether you organize a pet parade in your neighborhood, petition to get your town hall to light up orange, help your children bake orange cupcakes to share with their classmates, or simply decorate your office door with an orange bow, we’ll be tickled pink (er…orange!) and very much appreciative.

Click here for more ways to go orange for animals.

Dealing Dogs

Dealing Dogs

Each year, 42,000 dogs are sold to veterinary schools and research labs by Class B dealers, who are required by federal law to buy the animals from pounds, shelters and small breeders and to treat them humanely. However, many Class B dealers violate the law. DEALING DOGS exposes the abuses that took place at one of America's most notorious Class B dealers - Martin Creek Kennel in Arkansas.


Last Chance for Animals
Last Chance for Animals (LCA), founded in 1984 by actor Chris DeRose, recognizes that animals have the ability to experience pain, and as such they deserve certain basic rights protecting them from pain caused by humans. LCA believes that non-human animals should not be subjected to suffering and exploitation by humans because alternatives exist for nearly every traditional "usage" of animals. LCA opposes the use of animals for scientific curiosity, entertainment, clothing, and food. LCA's work advocates conscious and informed lifestyle decisions, and the organization is committed to disseminating truthful information about societal animal abuse to improve the treatment of animals. In the 1980s and 1990s, LCA has worked on virtually every animal rights issue, including farming, fur and animals in entertainment. LCA's primary focuses are vivisection, pet theft, fur, and circuses.

Humane Society of the United States (HSU
The Humane Society of the United States (HSU has worked since 1954 to promote the protection of all animals. With nearly ten million members and constituents, The HSUS is the nation’s largest and most powerful animal protection organization, working in the United States and abroad to defend the interests of animals. We celebrate the human-animal bond, and we fight animal cruelty and abuse in all of its forms. The HSUS works to reduce suffering and to create meaningful social change for animals by advocating for public policies to protect animals, investigating cruelty and working to enforce existing laws, educating the public about the issues, and conducting hands-on programs, such as assisting animals when disasters strike. Our major campaigns target four primary issues: 1) factory farming, 2) animal fighting and other forms of animal cruelty, 3) the fur trade, and 4) inhumane sport hunting practices. Our other campaigns take on puppy mills, the private ownership of exotic animals as pets, greyhound racing, and particularly unacceptable animal research and testing practices .
DEALING DOGS

The illegal and inhumane treatment of dogs sold for medical research is exposed in this shocking investigation of one notorious dealer.
