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.

Dog Euthanized in Oshawa Animal Cruelty Case

This is a news article from, from a case that occurred on the eleventh of April:

"Two people are facing animal cruelty charges after the Durham Humane Society discovered a dog in a backyard shed of an Oshawa home.
A German shepherd was removed from the shed, described as "deplorable" living conditions, and taken to a veterinary clinic for assessment and treatment. The dog was later euthanized due to its severely compromised health.
"In this line of work, we see many unfortunate things but to witness such intentional cruelty and the deliberate infliction of so much suffering on an animal is heartbreaking," says Debby Houghton, animal cruelty investigator with the Humane Society of Durham Region.
Two individuals from the Oshawa area have been charged under the Ontario SPCA Act with permitting distress. The first court appearance is scheduled for May 10.
The humane society would release no further details, and withheld the names of those charged."

This is horrible. If you can't look after a pet, don't get one. If you can't look after a pet anymore, don't keep it somewhere you think will be ok for them. Here are some things to do with pets that you just can't take care of anymore:
Find a person that is willing to take care of you pet, but only if you're sure that they will take good care of it,
Ask friends, family and colleagues if they are willing to or know anyone who is willing to take in your pet, only if you check out the new home for your pet first, and finally, if all else fails,
Look for a trustworthy animal shelter that will take your pet in that has good conditions and places for animals.

That's all! But remember, if you are still able to take care of your pet, don't give up on them!

Littering and Kangaroo Skin

Did you know when you litter, there's a big possibility that the trash will end up on an animal neck or being swallowed by an animal? Last month, I saw a goose with something around its neck. I don't think it was supposed to be there.
Also, some people make shoes out of kangaroo skin! How awful is that? Please don't buy these shoes! It's awful enough that they do!

April! Let's Make It A Month To Remember!

As the title says; lets do it! Go out to your pet, somebody elses pet, any animal wild or tame and do somehting kind for it whether it is feeding it, giving it something to do so it's not bored, playing with it or even just giving it a couple pats on the head. Do something nice for an animal--there! Didn't that feel good? Go to your local shelter! Offer to walk a dog, socialize a cat, train one of the animals or even adopt one! Do you have wild bird in your area? Make a bird feeder!
Get a pinecone, cover it in honey, cover the honey with bird seed, oats, barley, wheat, anything you think birds would like.

Do a good deed for the Month Of April. Spread the word! Help animals everywhere!

And to make it better, tell everybody what you did in a comment here!

Mine: Went out and trained all four dogs, played with them. Fed the cats and the birds. Soon to make a Bird Feeder.

April Fool's Day

Remember: Just because its April Fool's Day does not mean you can play harmful jokes on animals! It will be considered ANIMAL CRUELTY if you do anything harmful to it. Most people would probably joke on an animal physically on April Fool's Day, but that doesn't mean its okay!
