Sponsored by: Care2 members via petition signitures and butterfly credit exchange system
We the undersigned wish to
To stop animals from being killed needlessly due to lack of money.

Some NO kill rescue charities try to rescue them by paying for the animals adoption fees out of their own pocket. Guardian Angels for Animal Rescues do this type of rescues for example. Sometimes, on Care2 there is a panic financial request to help donate to pay for animals to be adopted from the killing list on the last hour of the animals life.
The request for butterfly exchange options is to help pay for any animal's rescue costs.

The last few occasions were many cats in Livingston County Animal Control, were about to be euthanized. (Slaughtered, murdered, killed, destroyed, put to sleep, put down.)

After a huge struggle from many people trying to rescue these cats and a dog at another high kill shelter, the animals were eventually rescued by Guardian Angels. But thousands upon thousands are not so lucky to be rescued. I know we can not save the world, but if we save one life, we have helped give the world back to that life.

The monies were collected by the public, Care2 member donations, and Guardian Angels for Animal rescues. With these donations, NO KILL rescue organisations managed to rescue the cats from being euthanized.

Thank you so much for your kind attention, compassion and time in signing this petition. You know, you may not see the good you had done, it is good enough to know that you have tried and contributed to help saving lives.

Thank you for request from Care2 for new Butterfly Credit exchange options, from Care2 to donate to No Kill Rescue type of organisations to help pay for the animals rescues from being killed, by paying for their adoption fees from the Euthanasia (death) List.

Thank you Randy on behalf all those who joined Care2 that you founded, and most of for all those you have helped.
And to those who have signed, a heart felt thank you for your support, compassion and contributions. Please forward and obtain as many signitures as possible regardless of the targets. I hope we get 10,000 signitures, but I have made it only 1000 signiture target because this petition IS SO URGENT.

This maybe needs a Pet Company to back up the Butterfly rewards that would be used, When we click to donate or otherwise here on Care2 the sponsors give what I would think a nominal donation when it adds up because of the members then it is making n impact, A very real one. But a New Sponsor would have to be on board w/us on this, Maybe we can reach out to pet food companies or pet suppliers. I do think it can happen!

As this is getting quite a bit of well deserved attention, I risk being redundant , But we need a sponsor!! I,m sure most of us here avoid Companies w/ any links to animal testing, And yes some pet food , pet care Companies do animal test! I will always boycott those. If there is a good wholesome Company out there that wishes to help rescued pets Please contact Care2 about sponsoring this very worthy cause! I,m sure we must get some interest from pet companies because of the nature of this site.

Signed & noted. This cannot happen soon enough. Perhaps we could look for sponsors among companies who sell products such as cosmetics that either do not use or no longer use animals for testing. In exchange, they could advertise their connection with the no-kill shelters. We need to make this attractive to raise the kind of funds this project will need. Many, many lives depend on this...

Discouragingly few signatures so far. I have forwarded this petition to 50 of my 60 Care2 friends.

I think this is an excellent suggestion! Although I live in England and am unfamiliar with the US set-up, I have gathered that there are many, many "high-kill animal shelters" in the USA. Profoundly sad and very disheartening.

sorry to be a buzz kill, but I can't find info that tells me what exactly I am signing - who this is to go to and what the point of the petition is. I understand sometimes groups step in to take animals that are on a kill list - what I don't get is who exactly this letter targets - all animal shelters? County agencies? And, the petition wants no animal killed due to lack of funds, but I can't find what they are to do if they are in that situation? Who do they call? etc. very little CLEAR info. Or maybe I'm just stupid, someone explain?

Death is not the worst thing that can happen to an animal.

If we are prepared to provide for its continued life, I agree.

But not to be kept alive in a shelter.

Noted & signed #339 & thanks Eco. You can thank Genoveva for me noticing this petition even though I had just asked her not to forward so many to me. Karen E. poses excellent questions; where, who, & what, or visa versa. No-Kill shelters, are targeted, usually local citizens pay what they can out of pocket. County sites are Kill sites, about 24 to 74 hours before kill, more time if they are being kind & have the budget $ & space. So the rest of Karen's questions are not being answered in the petition . However, Care2 does have quite a bit of experience with the paperwork, liason w/local staff, $ comes from & goes where, etc.. The Butterflies already go to groups under the headings we at Care2 want to contribute to. Have been thinking for a time, that it would be good for more selection of "Earthwhile" projects be available to give Butterfly credits towards.

I should like to have the option of donating Butterfly Credits to Guardian Angels for Animals (I think I got the name right) and other similar groups - any group that runs a "Save the Animals on Death Row" type of operation gets my support.

Likewise, TNR schemes will also get my support and Butterfly Credits.

Vouchers for spay & neuter is also an excellent idea, Jan C.

I cannot imagine anyone with a heart and conscience looking into an innocent dog's or cat's eyes and
placing them in a gas chamber. They all want and need homes. There are instances where people will take
their animal to a shelter if that animal has displayed aggressive and/or attacking behavior, In this instance,
I believe it is the best interest of the animal and kind hearted, but naive, new owner, to have that animal
euthanized. Sadly, there are cases where, because of health or irreversible behavior issues, animals are
placed in shelters. In a lot of cases, they are not screened properly and are adopted out and brought back
in again. I believe that discretion should be used by an ethical vet, at these roundups, to
make sure that euthanasia is, ultimately, the humane solution for this specific animal. It should be
performed with grace and in a peaceful manner. It is heartbreaking to have to deal with this reality, but
sometimes. it is the appropriate decision. Which brings me to the reasons why this problem exists...1),
SPAYING and NEUTERING has become, prohibitively, expensive. 2), there are vets who will tell you
that this is true...there are men who refuse to have their male dogs and/or cats neutered. It would change
their minds, I hope, if they could see the hundreds of homeless dogs and cats, in shelters or outside,
pacing and whimpering and shivering. because their one male, potentially, could impregnate 4 females.
Multiply each of those litters by 2 or 3 more generations, added onto all of the other males not neutered,
and your heart will be the body part the most affected by your decision not to neuter. 3), Educate!

I tried to report the spam but the link isn't working : (. There are many animal lovers out there on Care2 and I think this request shows Care2 that we members would like more options to help out animals with our butterfly credits. Whether they implement this type of a program or not I think they will look for other ways to use butterfly credits to help animals. Which is a win-win situation for us.

What a BRILLIANT idea! Signed and forwarded - thanks so much for this valuable initiative. I will work 10 times as hard to gain credits, knowing they are being used to save actual LIVES. I just wish your program extended to South Africa - but perhaps soon? .... By the way, I redeemed a few hundred butterfly credits this morning - yet my balance seems to have remained at the same level. Have I done something wrong? Was there perhaps a confirmation button I should have clicked on?

Sweet Sue~ This past month the C2 team IS ON THE SPAMMERS. I recall the first day last month I saw a dispicable spammer and FLAGGED SO QUICKLY ONLY POSTING...FLAG THE SPAMMER. Seconds later when I cam back to write my post, NO SPAMMER! I recall this happening 6 times as I was "thread hopping"...WINK. Good for Randy and his TEAM. Eco sweetness, this is absolutely brilliant. My apology was only because I had thanked Randy earlier in the day and his photo was in my eyes! I IMMIDEATELY corrected my error...YOU HAVE DONE A BRILLIANT JOB. I know how long it took you to get this composed. YOU DID GOOD MY DEAR! You have not led me OR ANYONE ELSE astray! I am VERY CONFIDENT you will achieve the 1,000 signatures at ROCKET SPEED. Sweetie, you should be so very proud of yourself. Nitie night all!

Another idea is to find sponsors for Animal Rescue on the 'Click to Donate' site. I visit this site whenever I can, and I appreciate the generosity of the sponsors.

Also, I tried to sign this petition, as it's a wonderful plan, and add my idea there, and for some reason kept going to the previous petition that I had signed.

A good way for this to close and now go to CARE2 , Would be if there is a concrete plan for the rewards ie, butterfly credits to work w/ a rescue group that is a real registered nonprofit, Also who is willing to back the butterfly credits w/ real money? Thats where the sponsorships will be needed.

It's important to help animals & people already here. We also need to have family planning & birth control because we're over populating, creating problems like pollution, scarcity in some areas, invading other animal's territories, etc... I was happy to give my butterfly credits for family planning but that choice was removed. Please bring it back!Family Planning, Animal Rescue, Birth control for people & other animals. Let us be wanted & cherished rather than forced & resented.

I have Noted & Signed the Petition & Forwarded to all my Care 2 Friends & asked them to Note, Sign & Forward the Petition too.

POST I PUT ON MY FACEBOOK WALL

I have also Posted the Petition to my Facebook Wall & written a paragraph above the Post, explaining that I have recently started getting involved with the Online Networking regarding the Rescue of Animals that have been Red Listed for Euthanasia at High Kill Animal Shelters. I explained that this involved sourcing: Licenced Pullers, Transporters, Fosterers, Adopters & Rescue Groups. I then explained on my Facebook Wall that these Emergency Animal Rescues regarding Animals Red Listed for Euthanasia, needed monies for 'Pull Fees', Transport Costs & any other costs that may be involved. I think that exchanging our Butterfly Credits for funds that could be used to pay the Rescue Fees required when 'Pulling' an Animal that is Red Listed for Euthanasia at a high Kill Shelter, would be an excellent idea & could potentially help save the lives of Millions of Animals,

I asked everyone to Sign this very worthy Petition, Post to their Facebook Walls & Share & Cross Post with Friends and any other Animal Welfare Sites that they belong to.
___________________________________________________________________

GENERAL BACKGROUND OF MY ANIMAL WELFARE/CONSERVATION WORK

I have been involved with Animal Welfare work offline for many years. I started online networking for Animal Welfare about four years ago, centred around Animal Abuse, Neglect, Cruelty & Slaughter Issues Worldwide. I have also Campaigned on behalf of many Environmental Conservation Issues & Human Rights Issues.

I still do a lot of Campaigning & Networking in the above areas, which involves: Writing Stories/Blogs; Sending Letters/Emails; Contacting Media Outlets; Creating Online Petitions; Signing Online Petitions with a Personalised Letter; Posting, Sharing & Cross Posting Animal Related Articles & any other Actions that I can take to help all our Precious Animals.

WHY I THINK THE BUTTERFLY CREDITS EXCHANGE OPTION IS A GREAT IDEA

Over the last two weeks, I have become involved with the Online Networking necessary to Rescue Animals from Euthanasia at High Kill Shelters. I have been Networking to try & source: Sponsorship/ Transport/Pullers/Fosterers/Adopters & Rescue Groups. I also Post Animals in need of Emergency Rescue to my Facebook Wall & Share & Cross Post to Friends & other Animal Welfare/Conservation Sites that I belong to. I belong to 40+ Animal Welfare/Conservation Sites & I have linked my Facebook Account to some of the other websites that I belong to. I have found this is a great way to get the word out to as many people as possible. Every time I post Animals in desperate need to my Facebook Wall, I can easily Share & Cross Post them with other websites that I have linked to my Facebook Account, such as Care 2, Change.org & other websites that I belong to. Likewise, if I post Animals in desperate need to Care 2, Change.org or other websites, I can easily Share & Cross Post them with my linked Facebook Account.

I have already sent Emails to Individual Transporters & Organisations that provide Transport, regarding several Animals from different High Kill Animal Shelters. I am trying to build a Network of Transporters/Pullers/Fosterers/Adopters & Rescue Groups.

A few days ago, I sent a message to a Licenced Puller from Guardian Angels Animal Rescue, to see if she could 'Pull' a Kitten that was Red Listed for Euthanasia from the Livingston County Animal Control, Howell, Michigan. It is a long story & the first Adoption attempt fell through. The lady trying to Adopt the Kitten rang the Animal Shelter to pay the Pull Fees. The Animal Shelter would not take Monies over the phone & Sponsorship Fees were not available at the time. There were also other complications. I was really upset, as the Kitten was already on borrowed time & we felt that we were not going to be able to save the Kitten. I then received a message from the Licenced Puller from LCAC, that I had originally sent the message to, saying that she had managed to Save the Kitten & that she had found a Local Foster.

It was the best Gift in the World to receive this message. This is why we ALL do what we do. We ALL play a very important role, it is a Team Effort. I have found people that have helped me & I always try to help others in anyway I can. Thanks to everyone who is helping, you are all doing a great job.

It is so rewarding, when you feel you are helping to Save so many Animals Lives. I am new to the Online Networking necessary regarding the actual Rescue of Animals, as I only started getting involved with it a couple of weeks ago, but I am learning all the time.

If Butterfly Credits could be exchanged to provide the funds to cover the costs of Pull Fees, Transport Costs & any other Costs associated with Rescuing Animals from Euthanasia at High Kill Animal Shelters, this could potentially save the lives of Millions of Animals.

OTHER POSSIBLE CAUSES THAT COULD BE FUNDED WITH BUTTERFLY CREDITS

There are so many other Animal Welfare/Conservation & Human Rights Issues that the Butterfly Credits could be exchanged into funds for, such as:

Campaigns Against Animal Abuse, Neglect, Cruelty & Slaughter Worldwide; Animal & Environmental Conversation Projects Worldwide; Protect Endangered Big Cats & Exotic Wild Cats; Protect All Endangered Species Projects; Animal Habitat Conservation Projects; Rainforest Conservation Projects; Create & Protect Existing Wildlife Sanctuaries; Wildlife Rehabilitation Projects; Sri Lanka Elephant Orpanhage; Sea Shepherd Conservation Society; Marine Conservation (Protection & Preservation of Ecosystems in Oceans & Seas); Campaigns to Ban Horse Slaughter & Build New & Fund Existing Horse Sanctuaries & Rescues; Phase out Animal Kill Shelters & Replace them with Animal Sanctuaries & Animal Rescue Centres; Campaigns to Ban Animals in Entertainment ( Circuses, Rodeos, Zoos & Racing); Campaigns to Strengthen International & National Environmental Laws & Regulations to Reduce Air & Water Pollution Worldwide; Human Rights Issues Worldwide; Helping Underprivileged Children of the World; WTO-Aid for Trade (Help Developing Countries become Economically Self Sustainable) & Charities for Homeless People, Providing Helplines & Advice On: (Benefits, Rent Arrears/Debts, Eviction Issues, Domestic Abuse, Hostels/Shelters, Supported/Emergency Housing & Rights & Responsibilities.

___________________________________________________________________

Thank you very much Eco for Posting this very Inspiring & Thought Provoking Petition.

I THINK IT IS AN EXCELLENT IDEA & IT COULD OPEN UP SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES. BUTTERFLY CREDITS COULD BE USED TO HELP FUND SO MANY ANIMAL WELFARE, CONSERVATION & HUMAN RIGHTS RELATED ISSUES WORLDWIDE.

Signed and shared everywhere on Facebook-it's been awhile, my friends XX

This is just an amazing and wonderful idea on CARE2's part and I would love to see it come to fruition.I hope I can provide some clarity for you regarding the way rescues are conducted by these groups. I am a member of CARE2 but because of medical reasons I had to step away. Some time ago I was drafted into the constant frenzy that is the cross-posting of all urgent cats in high kill shelters and then began networking with all the rescues on Facebook. The rescues work selflessly and tirelessly, nearly round the clock- navigating the ins and outs and loopholes of various animal control situations but are greatly hindered by the lack of funding.

Great heartbreak comes from taking some and leaving others. There are so many rescues and they have absorbed so much expense and some funding goals are met while others linger and that leaves cats in flux or limbo awaiting transport or vetting. Working behind the scenes has really enabled me to learn all the details of these endeavors and they are quite emotionally taxing-much less having the funds to follow through for life-time care in the case of special needs animals and to assist fosters as well. Facebook really lets us do split second timing which can mean success or failure with these rescues. These are delicate operations and life or death and they simply do perform miracles. This would be a gift from the stars that would allow for so much more flexibility and let them concentrate on getting the animals more than worrying about backup funds. My dear friends at CARE2 you are everlastingly remarkable and infinitely loved and missed. Thank you Randy for this exciting idea.

I also would like to mention that you might want to consider litter companies and pet supply companies and not limit your possibilities to just pet food. If this could be done it would change everything about rescue. It would BE ABOUT RESCUE and not tying up the teams scrambling for money that is so hard to come by.

And now I have to get back in FB where we are getting geared up for the evening. We get a list from "Pets On Death Row" (which was recently written up in the New York Times for its good work along with Urgent Rescue for dogs). PODR compiles albums of URGENT cats and other shelters come to us with their albums-and a friend who was a volunteer at one time at the notorious ACC in NYC gives us his stunning photos of cats in the center there to share-we begin sending out pleas for cats for rescue/fostering and adoption or sponsor depending on the shelter and the way it is set up.

It is a very complicated process. NYC is the hardest because of a lot of restrictions as you guys know by the great petition that was just put up about them. Then the whirlwind starts and cross-posters from all over the world begin sending out these shares and we check them on our feed and re-share over and over til we conk out on our keyboards and wake up next day to start the process again-sometimes for days if the cat has that much time available (we just did 3 kittens in NYC that took 5 days to rescue). I work with Blind Cat Rescue in NC placing blind cats that they cannot take because they are full. It's a race and then some to accomplish the impossible-to beat the clock on the animal control regimes-they are hostile sometimes and one went into lockdown recently and we could do nothing for days. Then we fit in the ongoing cases-chip-ins that need to be completed-funding that is not met so kittens that are waiting to be transported to homes or fosters can be sent off or injured animals can have their surgeries and their required treatment-it is never-ending-as long as animals are surrendered into the heartless bastions wrongly called shelters we will be there waiting to get them out the door. I hope this helped to answer some questions about how this works.

I miss you guys but I am in my niche'-I was in cat rescue all my life and this is like fitting back into old slippers. It's natural for me but I have never left you and never will.

Please note, Care2 Staff Team HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS. ECO IS THE GUILTY ONE. I DO NOT WANT TO MISS LEAD ANYONE. IT IS UP TO US MEMBER TO TRY, ASK, WAIT AND SEE WHAT RANDY SAYS. NO IDEA IF CARE2 is able to or wishes to or what their answer will be. Like all off you, we want this to happen so badly, that we wish we had the ADDITIONAL SET OF OPTIONS for the animals etc on top of the ones we already have.

If the answer is NO from Care2 team and Randy, then at least they will understand even now, how we all feel.

...if we save one life, we have helped give the world back to that life. Request for butterfly exchange options to help pay for ANY animal's rescue costs REGARDLESS of the species from being killed where ever they need to be rescued.


Everyone please note: this is my petition link. the above is my news, that leads to the petition. Some people think Randy and care2 did this. I wrote this. So hope I wont get into trouble for this, because I did not intend to mislead anyone.

Signed, with the comment that perhaps credits could be redeemed to help spay or neuter pet animals, particularly in third world countries that are struggling with this issue. This might help reduce the problem at its source.

signed and noted already. and earning credits for this purpose would be really great. the thing is the credits don't mean a lot. it's not like they are money or anything, but they are fun and somewhat addictive. i think for many of us, collecting and "spending" these credits for a good cause is so great! Thanks, and i hope we can get this one done.

6. I know my hands typed this petition out, but it belongs to you now and everyone involved who is concerned with Care2 Butterfly Credits and also those who will benefit in the future as a result of the rescues.

IF YOU WISH THIS TO HAPPEN, THESE PETITIONS AND ITS NEWS LINK IS ONLY AS EFFECTIVE AS THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE FULLY.

ABOUT THIS PETITION:
I am hoping for 10,000 signatures target, but have set the target for 1,000 signatures target.

Some NO kill rescue charities try to rescue them by paying for the animals adoption fees out of their own pocket. Guardian Angels for Animal Rescues do this type of rescues for example. Sometimes, on Care2 there is a panic financial request to help donate to pay for animals to be adopted from the killing list on the last hour of the animals life.
The request for butterfly exchange options is to help pay for any animal's rescue costs.

The last few occasions were many cats in Livingston County Animal Control, were about to be euthanized. (Slaughtered, murdered, killed, destroyed, put to sleep, put down.)

After a huge struggle from many people trying to rescue these cats and a dog at another high kill shelter, the animals were eventually rescued by Guardian Angels. But thousands upon thousands are not so lucky to be rescued. I know we can not save the world, but if we save one life, we have helped give the world back to that life.

The monies were collected by the public, Care2 member donations, and Guardian Angels for Animal rescues. With these donations, NO KILL rescue organisations managed to rescue the cats from being euthanized.

Thank you so much for your kind attention, compassion and time in signing this petition. You know, you may not see the good you had done, it is good enough to know that you have tried and contributed to help saving lives.

Thank you for request from Care2 for new Butterfly Credit exchange options, from Care2 to donate to No Kill Rescue type of organisations to help pay for the animals rescues from being killed, by paying for their adoption fees from the Euthanasia (death) List.

Yes gud idea. to many poor animals are put to sleep . People need to be educated to neuter so there not so many being bred and born. Plus all this puppy mills and people breeding privatlely dont help. Thems doing for money greed. Im so sad for the animals .I do cat rescue. I have 3 cats at moment and have rescued and homed. One cat in a year can have 20,000 descendents.
