A kitten was recently found half-buried alive in front of the home of a former Latter Day Saints (LD Church member in Colorado City, Arizona. Andrew Chatwin, another former LDS member, found and rescued the kitten, but the animal died a few days later at an animal sanctuary.

Chatwin claims that animal killings and threats have been going on for years as a way to intimidate former LDS members who have spoken against the Church. He also claims that city sheriffs scoffed at him when he reported the animal abuse and did not take the act seriously. He hints that non LDS members are denied protection from the police.

The case of the live kitten buried in concrete must be taken seriously. The cruel act was frightening and disturbing to the community and caused great pain and suffering to the abused kitten. Please sign the petition to urge Colorado City sheriffs to thoroughly and seriously investigate the case.

For nearly two decades, mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining has been destroying Appalachia's natural landscape and wildlife habitats. Recently, a native woodsman witnessed bulldozers covering the entrance of a black bear den with debris, leaving a crying mother bear and her cubs trapped inside to die.

In addition to hurting bears, the bulldozing and explosions involved in MTR destroy flying squirrel, salamander, mussel and other native animal habitats. Please sign the petition to convince Congress to ban MTR and to enforce legal requirements for coal mining in Appalachia.

In the beginning of April, I started a petition to urge the FDA to stop requiring any animal testing on any drugs. I almost have 3,000 signatures, but I need your help to get more! We need to show the FDA that we won\\\'t stand for this any more. Please...

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 ...
