ALDF Petition leads to Ban on Puppy Gassing in North Carolina Shelters:  

Gas Chambers Become History in Euthanizing Cats and Dogs
For immediate release:

RALEIGH,  North Carolina Board of Agriculture has announced it will now prohibit all gas chambers in the “routine euthanasia of cats and dogs.  This is a decision following a petition for rulemaking on the issue that the national nonprofit Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) filed with the board. As ALDF detailed in its petition, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Humane Association (AHA), and the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA) have a general consensus disapproving of gas chambers as a regular method of euthanasia at animal shelters.

This controversial method of destroying animals is already been outlawed in almost every state, and most North Carolina counties have voluntarily ceased this practice. During the past three years, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has assisted more than a dozen shelters in abandoning their gas chambers. Kim Alboum, HSUS’s state director, also advised ALDF on local issues in support of the petition.

“With this change, the state Board of Agriculture has come in line with the medical science and with humane laws,” says Stephen Wells, executive director of the Animal Legal Defense Fund. “The board must now work to ensure all North Carolina shelters follow this rule.”
Copies of the petition are available upon request.

Every day, ALDF attorneys work to keep animal abusers off the streets and prevent them from ever harming another victim. Letters, emails, and phone calls from concerned members of the public make the crucial difference. Now with the FBI working in conjunction with law enforcement, ASPCA NY,  PETA, and ALDF  abuse, neglect or abandonment can be now punishable to the full extent of the law. Dog fighting is now a felony and with the help of all concerned citizens throughout the nation, advising of the abuse can make all the difference for animals in cases of criminal animal cruelty and proposed legislation. 


Environmental Action, Defenders of Wildlife updated action today on their WAR TO KEEP OUR WOLVES UNDER PROTECTION FOR ANOTHER 40 YEARS!!!!! 

Forty years ago the Endangered Species Act saved the last few hundred grey wolves from being hunted to extinction. After decades of protection, there are now close to 5,000 wolves living in fragile families (called packs) across America.But if we don't act fast, those wolves could be removed from our list of threatened and endangered species, and hunted right back to the brink of extinction.
Wolves are already being hunted in seven states and the results have been disastrous.* In the last two months, 154 grey wolves have been slaughtered in Wisconsin. That's three wolves a day and over the course of a year, 20% of the entire grey wolf population. Thankfully new regulations in Wisconsin ended the hunting season last week, but in several other states like Idaho, hunting is legal year round!**

As of today there are only 90 Mexican Gray Wolves living in the Southwest.  They too are being hunted into extinction.  

With continued support, and joining them in their petitions, by sharing, signing, they can:
 
  • Continue to pressure the FWS (Fish and Wildlife Services) to keep the grey wolf listed on the threatened and endangered list.
  • Name and shame the special interests pushing wolf hunts in the seven states where its legal to hunt the grey wolf.
  • Work with allies in states like Wisconsin and Michigan to shorten or eliminate hunting seasons on wolves and save as many packs as we can while we wait for a permanent ban.

I hope in 2015 we all can ban together, to keep our Wolves safe as they are so important to our ecosystems    EXTINCT IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE!!!! 

PETA AND THEIR CHALLENGES AND VICTORIES!!

Thanks to the generosity of Simpsons co-creator and renowned philanthropist Sam Simon, PETA rescued two Himalayan black bears, one female and one male, who were illegally imported into Tennessee by the owner of Three Bears General Store. PETA quickly arranged to move the bears to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colo., where the female bear would have the opportunity to give birth in a cozy den and raise her cubs herself, rather than having them stolen from her shortly after their birth. The owner—who admitted his intent to breed the bears —agreed to a deal that secured the two bears' release for retirement to the sanctuary. 

Exciting wins for animals through the efforts of PETA
  • Following an internal review of the Department of Defense's (DOD) use of animals in medical training, the agency determined that "suitable simulation alternatives can replace the use of live animals" in six major medical educational areas. And the DOD wants these changes made on the double—all service branches have been ordered to make the transition by January 1, 2015. It will be a happier new year, indeed!
  • Recently, the Texas cities of Gainesville, Denton, Decatur and Terrell refused to allow Hugo Liebel to exhibit Nosey the elephant. Becuase of his abuse these compassionate Texas communities sent Liebel a loud and clear message that his abuse and exploitation of Nosey are unacceptable and unwelcome.           BRAVO!!!


HUMANE SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL VICTORIES AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS!
