Dear Animal Lovers, Advocates, Rescuers & Activists:


New Zealand declares ALL animals sentient beings!

We can treat animals humanely and still grow the economy:

Dolphin speak! 



URGENT:  This Kijiji post was sent to me this week, with a plea to advocates who might be able to help this special needs dog (behavioural) in danger of being put down....No kids, experienced handlers only. This is all the information we have: 



Call on Yasir Naqvi, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, to change the fire code for barns:
Ask Prince William to STOP promoting trophy hunting:

From Animal Justice this week:  URGENT: Are you a renter in Ontario? Live with a pet? Then listen up! The Ontario government might let landlords BAN pets in some rental buildings. Right now, O ntario is one of the few places where renters have the right to keep their pets. Don't let this happen - it will break up families, and send homeless animals to shelters!   Please email Minister Ted McMeekin today and tell him NOT to ban pets in rental units: minister.mah@ontario.ca


Re:  Surrendering pets ... offer resources to help them stay!

Pretty, funny, talented birdies! (thanks Kathy Robinson for sending):

"Compassion is an action word with no boundaries." -- Prince.

The rescue and advocacy communities will always be grateful to Prince for his protection of, and activism for, animals.   RIP beautiful one. Listen up:  I hope the world dignifies you with the privacy you cherished, and so deserve.  With great love, mitch.
