Let it Soak in

Warning: The following pictures may be disturbing to some.

I'm not going to say much in this post. I'm going to show two pictures of the aftermath and process of animal abuse, and you let it soak into your mind. Animal abuse is wrong.

Now think about it. No one went to help these poor, defenseless animals. They were left to die. Do you want to be that cruel? Start fighting animal cruelty/abuse now!

Another Animal Cruelty Case

(Guys, we should really start posting again.)

This is about a poor dog who was forced to submit to the greedy needs of teenagers. The fun-seeking teens placed very strong firecrackers in the dog's mouth, and made sure that he wouldn't be able to open it. And then, well, boom.

To the teenagers, it was a 'fun' experience, and they went on with living lives without caring. What do you think the dog did? Luckily, he was saved, but is now forced to live with the tragic scars to remind him of this horrible incident. Why are people doing this to animals? Is it fun? No. How could watching poor animals get mutilated be a form of entertainment? This is pushing animal cruelty to its limits.

Below is a picture of this poor dog. I wouldn't call it too disturbing, but it still is very sad. Humans should work together to help animals, not harm them.

Animal Cruelty: Dog Fights

I noticed nobody has posted in a long time so I figured I should-

This post is about Dog Fight awareness. If you dont know already, Dog Fights is a revolting, cruel sport where people with take stray dogs off the street, breed dogs, find dogs or steal dogs like Pit Bulls that can fight and kill. Then they "train" the dogs by trapping them in cages and hitting them. Soon the dog will bite, out of fear or anger, then the person stops. Later, he does it again. It teaches the dog that when they bite, the pain stops. Then they anger two dogs and put them in a enclosure together with seats around the outside so people can watch. They bid money on which dog they think will win. One of the dogs is always killed except on rare ocations. Either the dog's oponent kills him or he is killed later because he did not win/dumped on the streets and his wounds cause him to die. It is a sick sport and is banned in most places, but drugs are banned to, and do people just not do them? NO. Dog Fights can take place anywhere. Back yards, enclosed arenas and houses.
When Dog Fights are busted the dogs go to the shelter and because nobody wants a "blood-thirsty pit bull" or a scarred bloody mess of a dog, they are most often put down. Here is a link about Dog Fighting-

My Essay on Animal Testing.

Hey guys!! This is my essay for school on animal testing. Feel free to edit and post comments! NO MEAN COMMENTS PLEASE!! I worked really hard on this!!

Do you have a pet? A bunny or a dog or maybe even a rat or mouse. Well picture your pet locked up in a cage while someone puts their designer makeup product on it, to make sure its not poisonous or harmful. Not the best picture right? Well you can help, animals everyday are testing for makeup products and different drugs that are not even useful or needed in our lives. If you have a pet, or you know someone who has a pet you understand, even if your not that big of an animal lover, we are animals too, and animals should not have to suffer for makeups companies and cosmetics. Product testing on animals is immoral.

Animals in the lab are treated awfully. During animal testing, animals are infected with diseases, force fed, kittens are purposely made blind and rats are forced to suffer seizures over and over again. Animals have to go through repeated surgery and are purposely poisoned. There is no end to the pain that animals in a lab go through. Animals that are used for drug testing are given diseases and infections, then euthanized, in labs animals are injected with a disease so that the cure can be tested. In cosmetic tests, caustic substances are placed in the eyes of conscious rabbits to evaluate damage to sensitive eye tissues. This is extremely painful for the rabbits, who often scream when the substances are applied and sometimes break their necks or backs trying to escape the restraints. It is inhumane to purposely give an animal a disease or infection or put something on them that will harm them. Animal testing kills 25-50 billion animals a year, and many others are harmed and injured as well. Animals in labs go through endless amount of pain and suffering for useless reasons. Even when they are not being tested on they are treated badly, they are kept in cages that are way to small, and depending on the experiment, they are hardly fed at all.

Products that are tested on animals are mostly inaccurate. Only 8% of the products that are tested are not passed by the FDA and 92% of them end up being harmful, poisonous, or deadly. They can also end up being more harmful then do any good. In 2004 painkillers were testing on animals and it caused 140,000 people to have a stroke or a heart attack, and 60,000 were fatal. For animal testing the highest percentage of animals that are used is rats and mice, even rats and mice tend to have different reactions to certain drugs or products. The age, sex and species effects the reaction. Lethal Dosage (LD) tests are used to determine the amount of a substance that will kill a predetermined ratio of animals. For example during the LD50 test subjects were forced to ingest poisonous products until half of them die. Reactions to LD tests are, eye bleeding, eye paralysis and vomiting.

Some people feel that product and cosmetic testing on animals is necessary for humans health and safety, but there are alternatives. Non-animal testing methods are more reliable and less expensive. These other methods make use of cell and skin tissue cultures, corneas from eye banks, and sophisticated computer and mathematical models. Some companies avoid any testing by using non-toxic natural ingredients or ingredients that have already been safety-approved by the Cosmetics, Toiletry and Fragrance Association. Gordon Baxter, co-founder of Pharmagene Laboratories, which uses only computers and human tissues to create and test drugs once said, “If you have information on human genes, what’s the point of going back to animals?”

Animals are tortured and killed in the labs, and even worse, they are killed for nothing because half of the tests are inaccurate. If there are other ways to test products, why would you use animals. Ways that you can stop animal testing is to not buy products or makeups that test on animals. Let companies that are testing on animals know that you wont buy their products!

Thanks for reading!!

Animal Testing.

Hey guys have not posted in a long time but I must for this.
I am doing a persuasive essay in school for a writing prompt and Im doing "animal testing is immoral"
Animals in the lab are forced to go through countless numbers of pain and surgery just so someone can test their designer make up product. 25-50 BILLION animals a year die from animal testing. Some animal testing is NEEDED in our life like cures for diseases and such that is life or death but even then, is the death of animals worth the price? While anyone who is here should say no!! For example kittens are forced to blindness and rats are FORCED to have seizures OVER AND OVER AND OVER again!! They are infected with diseases, overfed, underfed. Imagine if that was YOUR pet in the lab forced to go through pain and pain for makeup.
So Take Action,
Only buy products of makeup and stuff that say not tested on animals and if you see one, turn your nose up on it and DONT BUY IT (unless you are in a lidgit life or death situation) but If you need new EYELINER find one that is NOT tested on makeup!

Thanks guys!!,

Can these people be nice?

My friend told me yesterday that her dog was abused by their owner. They found it on the side of the road and returned it to the owner. When they returned it, the kicked and slapped him. Her family bought the dog.

A chef in France bought cats from breeders, shelters, and pet store. Then he butchered them and cooked them! He got arrested, and apparently he thought "cats tasted good."

You've heard about the illegal Burmese pythons in Florida, and how they're killing animals? Well, someone let go their python and it ended up eating a neighbor's cat. If you can't take care of your pet, you can give it to a shelter. If you can't take care of it and its illegal, you shouldn't of bought it in the first place!!!

People who work or own Puppy Mills force dog to mate and have babies repeatedly, with no concern for the dog's health or social behavior.

People who own Chicken Factories must cut the beaks of the chickens so they don't fight. They do it for money,
but its actually cheaper to let them outside and keep them happy with beaks than keep them outside and unhappy without beaks.

Can you just be nice to animals? You're acting like Judd Travers from Shiloh! And he's an awful person! Don't abandon, hurt, cook [animals like dogs, cats, ect. If you're a vegetarian, that's good too, but that's your choice.], or force animals to have babies! Animals have feelings too!

Iams is cruel

I'm Shadowflower, a new author of this blog. This is my first post, on something I feel very strongly against; Animal Testing.

While surfing the web, I came across horrible situation with the Iams Pet Food company:
"For nearly 10 months in 2002 and early 2003, a PETA investigator worked undercover at Sinclair Research Center, a laboratory hired by Iams, and discovered a dark and sordid secret beneath the wholesome image of the dog- and cat-food manufacturer. Dogs had gone crazy because they were confined to barren steel cages and cement cells, dogs were left piled on a filthy paint-chipped floor after chunks of muscle had been hacked from their thighs, dogs were surgically debarked, and horribly sick dogs and cats were neglected and left in cages to suffer without any veterinary care."

"After intense pressure from PETA and its supporters, Iams agreed to make the following significant changes in its testing program:
Iams agreed to begin conducting humane in-home tests for palatability studies.
Iams bowed to pressure and severed its ties with Sinclair Research Center.

Iams is said to have ended all invasive and terminal experiments on dogs and cats."
But Even Now;
"Iams still keeps up to 700 dogs and cats in its Dayton, Ohio, laboratory for non-invasive nutritional studies. They claim that this laboratory provides a decent environment for the animals, but they refuse to allow a PETA representative to see inside. Iams claims that some studies are too complex for in-home programs, but PETA urges Iams to collaborate with veterinary clinics for studies such as these. Veterinary clinics regularly see patients who suffer from ailments that a particular dog or cat food might help alleviate."

What can I do?
1) I suggest, friends, to not buy Iams' food for a start.

2) Join an online boycott, such as,
(the italicized text belongs to them)

3) DONATE. It's always a good option! Every penny counts.
