Save the #EndangeredSpeciesAct

The Trump Administration has proposed a series of drastic changes to the way they carry out the Act, and there have been dozens of legislative attempts to weaken this crucial law. The Endangered Species Act is one of the most effective and successful tools to protect plants, fish, and wildlife. A recent study found that the Act has saved 99 percent of listed species from vanishing into extinction.

Please email your senators and tell them that you support the Endangered Species Act and ask them to protect this vital conservation law from legislative and regulatory attacks.

PETITION: Justice for Sir Edwin, Dalmation Shot In His Own Home

PETITION TARGET: Warren County DA Jason Carusone

In the early hours of the morning of May 10, a man shot and killed a two-year-old Dalmatian named Sir Edwin in the dog’s own home.

The suspect, Joshua Marcantonio, reportedly visited the residence in Glens Falls, New York, to catch up with friends. Jacqueline Gilligan, one of Sir Edwin’s guardians, told WNYT that Marcantonio had punched her father in his sleep before leaving the house, only to return with a shotgun.

He then fired the gun through the closed front door, narrowly missing a man on the other side but killing Sir Edwin almost instantly. Gilligan says she heard the blast of the gun followed by the yelp of her precious dog who died shortly after, terrified and confused.

Glens Falls Police arrested Marcantonio, who is now in the Warren County Jail. Police charged him with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Glens Falls Police Detective Lt. Peter Casertino said the department would also file animal cruelty charges, according to The Post-Star.

Sign this petition urging Warren County DA Jason Carusone to treat this case with the severity it deserves, and prosecute Marcantonio to the fullest extent of the law — ensuring he can’t hurt another animal or endanger human life again.

PETITION: Justice for Helpless Kitten Shot with Arrow

PETITION TARGET: Laconia Police Department

In a shocking act of cruelty, someone shot an arrow through a 10-month old kitten named Wolfie in Laconia, New Hampshire, in April.

The thick arrow pierced Wolfie’s back leg, shattering her tibia and fibula, and only narrowing missing her femur and femoral artery, according to an update on her guardian Liz Carmignani’s GoFundMe page.

Carmignani found the injured kitten outside her house, terrified and in pain. After the traumatized cat went into shock and lost consciousness, she rushed her to the vet to get the arrow removed.

Initially, vets thought they would need to amputate the mangled limb, but they were fortunately able to repair it using metal rods. However, Wolfie’s recovery will be lengthy, and she will need further surgery to remove the rods.

Laconia Police Chief Matt Canfield told the Laconia Daily Sun that the arrow was a Mossy Oak brand, commonly launched by compound bows and crossbows. Local police are still investigating this malicious attack.

We need to act now to bring Wolfie’s attacker to justice before they can hurt or even kill any more animals like her.

Sign the petition urging the Laconia Police Department to use all possible resources to find the person responsible for this horrific abuse.

Anyone with information about the attack should call the Laconia Police Department crime line on 524-1717.

PETITION TARGET: Jonne Slemons, Bethany Mayor

A sweet little miniature horse named Quigley was callously murdered and his body mutilated in Bethany, Missouri, last week.

The perpetrator shot the much-loved four-year-old horse through the neck before chopping off his genitals, hacking off one of his ears and gouging out an eye. This beautiful horse had also been skinned from his belly up with surgical precision, reported KQ2.com.

Quigley’s guardians discovered his butchered body in his field when he didn’t come to the gate for his morning feed. They had cared for him since he was only a few months old and considered the 30-inch horse to be a treasured part of the family.

The Bethany Police Department is currently investigating, but has not yet reported any developments or arrests, according to the Kansas City Star.

Sign this petition calling for justice for Quigley and to urge Bethany Mayor Jonne Slemons to ensure all possible resources are used to investigate this heinous crime and prevent the attacker from torturing and slaughtering any more animals.

Bethany Police are asking anyone with information about this crime to call 660-425-3199.

PETITION: Justice for Puppy Shot by Police While Playing In the Park

PETITION TARGET: Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels

An off-duty deputy drew his gun and shot one-year-old puppy Parker dead as the friendly dog played in a local park in Clay County, Florida.

Parker was running around off leash when he spotted the deputy walking his dog. The excitable hound/boxer mix was running towards the pair to say hello when Lt. Mark Cowan pulled out his personal handgun and killed him.

According to the incident report, Cowan thought Parker was a 40-50 pound pitbull and shot him in self-defense.

Parker’s guardian, Miranda Abba, was out of town at the time, but she says Parker was a sweet, friendly dog who had never shown aggression towards anyone.

Although a report was made, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office says no charges will be filed, and the case is closed.

This is a shocking act of unnecessary force, used against a dog showing no signs of aggression. As a law enforcement officer, Lt. Cowan should have used non-lethal alternatives to deal with this situation.

Sign this petition urging the Clay County sheriff’s office to take cases of animal death seriously, and enact a mandatory training program for all officers so they can deal with animals properly and safely.
