Because you can do something to stop it.
Turning away because it is too difficult to look at is really not an option. Not if you want to part of the solution.
Dogs and cats are being used for live shark bait.
It seems incredible to me that man has such cruelty in him that they would use these animals in such a shameful way.
But they do.
Marion Grant has raised a petition that you can sign to ask that the penalties for these disgraceful acts be changed.
Currently the penalty is only 2 years and a little over $5,000 USD that is far too little for such a heinous crime. We urge that you raise the penalty to 10 years in prison with NO parole and a fine of $100,000. As well as offering a reward of $10,000 for turning in the offenders, which will come from the fines collected.This will hopefully act as a deterrent and will stop these horrendous acts against innocent animals FOREVER. Please do the right thing and help us stop these people.
You can help by signing this petition for action at the causes site.
They can’t speak for themselves – they need you to be their voice.
Sadly there are also scams out there trying to get money from people to supposedly stop this type of thing. It seems everywhere I look these days people disappoint me.
On another animals note: Pet Foods
I was – well I don’t know what I was – stunned just doesn’t explain it. Today I read about what actually goes in to the foods some people feed their pets.
I found it odd that they had an ad for Purina pet food right there on the page. This article led me to another.
Here I learned that they don’t even remove flea collars from the euthanized animals before using them. It ALL goes in to the pet food.
Born Free U.S.A has another interesting article:
Get The Facts:
It seems some companies used lab animals to test the safety and toxicity of their products. Many of these animals died as a result.
In the last few months I have been investigating raw food diets for my animals. I am in the process of changing them over and thanks to the following websites we are making progress.
There are many other great sites to check out but these two are full of useful information and I constantly refer back to them.
Chevvy thinks it is Christmas every day, but the cats are being a little resistant. If you shop around it doesn’t have to be costly. I find myself spending less than before. My hope is also that vet bills will be reduced in the future as the fur babies benefit from their healthier diet.
