  Less than three weeks from today the Doomsday Clock tolls. South Korea’s dog slaughterfest known as Boknal Days will begin. May you never, so long as you live, witness a dog being electrocuted, beaten to death, or boiled alive. May you never hear the screams or smell the smells or see the struggle. If […]

24 U.S. Bomb-Sniffing Dogs Executed Help Us Save the Rest

by Doll Stanley

  At least 24 of 140 bomb-detecting sniffing dogs have been executed in Kuwait by a US security company.  The retirement of canine officers, military or otherwise, should be of the utmost importance to a society that values its animals and its protectors, making news of this treachery and abuse enraging. These dogs were civilian […]

by Web Team

  In April, concerned locals and animal advocates were finally allowed to enter Bano Eco, an animal “shelter” in the Veshnyaky district of Moscow.

Billions of Animals EXCLUDED from Animal Welfare Act!

by Ingrid Taylor

Install Support for Taiwan’s No-Kill Policy to Truly Help Animals

by Lisa Levinson

  Without promoting spay and neuter, and adoption,  a no-kill policy won’t work. Animal advocates around the world rejoiced when Taiwan announced its upcoming no-kill policy, but sadly it indirectly led to a death-sentence for shelter director Jian Zhicheng and could spell increased suffering for thousands of dogs. Xinwu Animal Protection and Education Centre is […]

Justice for Harambe – Shot by the Cincinnati Zoo

by Ryan Murphy

  Caged and killed. These words describe Harambe’s life and now his death.

Free to Good Home is a Red Flag!

by Bob Price

  Whenever we see the advertisement of  “free to good home” it immediately sets off alarm bells. Many times these animals offered as “free to good home” by well meaning but naïve people will find themselves in situations both dire and cruel. Unethical and abusive animal testing labs have been known to round up as […]
