I urge ROYAL CANIN to immediately halt all its sponsorships of these activities and take on responsibility. All bears currently abused in Ukraine for bear baiting should be rehomed in an appropriate environment.

Signed wit this Additional comment:
I WAS a Royal Canine devoted buyer of food for cats and dogs for more than 15 years - BUT AFTER THIS INFORMATION I would surely took under consideration that (and advise all of my friends to do the same) IF YOUR COMPANY do not immediately halt all its sponsorships of these activities in Ukraine, where hunting dogs in training are let loose on a chained up bear, who is left almost defenseless to the onslaught!.
Thank you dear Desanka.

Great svurepost.
I thought that Ukraine is a country in which they live just good people.
I see I was wrong. I see that there are those who are thirsty for the blood of innocent animals.
Instead you're proud of them, to enjoy their beauty and freedom, you torture them.

I have five cats, four of them are fed 'cruelty free' products, but unfortunately the eldest has medical issues and is only fed on RC which is the only product that does not aggravate his health.

awful! I signed a different petition, July 4. bear baiting in Russia, to "train" hunting dogs. Poor animal was all chained up, defenseless.
I signed the petition, which originated at care2, and then was sent to a page, where I could send an email to President Putin.
So on July 4, early in the morning, I sent email to Putin, asking for the freedom of bears from this tyranny, and all other animals from cruelty, in Russia, and around the world.
haven't heard back -

no meat based dog food compoany is ethical HELLO? they torture and murder animals to feed to other animals and people who buy these products think they are animal lovers.think again.there are brands like V-Dog that are vegan and that is the only food that is ethical.Dogs DO NOT need meat or any other animal product.

never heard of royal canin but just looked them up and they have a vegetarian dog food but its rated as 1 scoop out of 5...go to to compare dog foods

I personally think dogs need meat since they were once wolves, but my boy does enjoy fruits and veges so Im gonna try something vegetarian for him..

Update from 29th of July 2013
Dear friends,

Due to the upcoming meeting with ROYAL CANIN, we want to inform you that we will stop our protest mail site until further notice.

In this meeting FOUR PAWS will emphasise the need for a swift and lasting solution for the affected bears in Ukraine.

We will keep you updated!

Thanks for posting, Desanka - and to Toni for forwarding.
