Petition:Tell Mattel to Teach Kids Compassion, Not Cruelty

Toy maker Mattel has made strides over the years to stay relevant and become more inclusive, and Barbie has even been a longtime, fur-free animal advocate. But Mattel is taking one giant step away from compassion by selling a Barbie doll that’s riding an elephant.

This toy makes it seem like riding an elephant is fun for all involved, but real-life elephant rides always involve abuse.

Elephants used for rides are often forcibly separated from their mothers as babies, tied down, beaten mercilessly, and gouged with sharp weapons. They’re left injured and traumatized, and some don’t survive. Whether elephants are born into captivity or abducted from the wild, they must be emotionally and mentally broken before they’ll allow humans to climb on their backs.

Tell Mattel to follow its mission to act with integrity and to join the dozens of other companies that have stopped promoting elephant rides.

Meet The Hero Who Stays In Syria To Care For Its Abandoned Cats | Care2 Causes

  • By: Susan Bird
    October 3, 2016
    Even in war-torn Syria, animals have brave protectors. Have you heard the story of the “Cat Man of Aleppo”?

His name is Mohammad Alaa Aljaleel. In a life now long gone, he was an electrician. Today, he’s the guardian angel to more than 150 stray and abandoned cats.

His makeshift cat sanctuary began by accident when Aljaleel noticed some stray cats lingering around an area devastated by an airstrike. An avid cat lover, he brought them food. Food draws more cats, of course. If they get food, they stay put.

Between the strays who found him and the friends who entrusted their pets to his care before they fled the war or died, Aljaleel now watches over up to 150 cats. Even the Civil Defense force brings him injured cats to care for.

“Any stray cats in Aleppo, or pet cats left behind by residents, we protect them in this little sanctuary,” Aljaleel told the BBC. “Since everyone left the country, including my own friends, these cats have become my friends here.”

His daily routine is to buy a couple of dollars’ worth of meat scraps from a local butcher. If that butcher is feeling magnanimous that day, he might add a few additional pieces for free. Augmenting the meat with rice and anything else he can find, Aljaleel feeds his feline charges.
When the war in Syria broke out in 2011, Aljaleel could have done what so many others did. He could have fled. In fact, he had a shot at a job as a mechanic in Turkey. However, he and his family decided they had to stay. Aljaleel wanted to be there to help those in need. For him, the needy turned out to be the homeless cats of Aleppo.

“I regard animals and humans in the same light,” Aljaleel told Newsweek. “All of them suffer pain, and all of them deserve compassion.”
The cats get fed thanks to mostly to crowdfunding.

Aljaleel understands the grief of people forced to leave beloved pets behind in a war zone. One little girl was so distraught when she handed him her kitten that Aljaleel makes sure to take photos of that cat for her. He sends them to her from his smartphone so she can see her cat is still alive and thriving. That’s a good hearted man.

Caring for the cats isn’t the only aid Aljaleel renders. His real job these says is driving ambulances and searching for victims in the rubble of airstrikes. His duty to the cats, however, holds a special place in his heart. There’s a playground right next door, and so Aljaleel makes sure the friendly household cats wear red collars so the kids know which ones they can pet.

Aljaleel plans to stay in Aleppo, no matter how bad things get. He feels a responsibility to these innocent creatures who have no one else to look to. There’s no such thing as an animal shelter in Syria, but building and running one someday is Aljaleel’s fervent dream. For now, though, he’ll care for Aleppo’s cats on the street.

“I said I’ll stay with them no matter what happens,” Aljaleel told the BBC. “Someone who has mercy in their heart for humans has mercy for every living thing.”

Donations fund this effort. In fact, crowdfunding helps in a lot of ways in this neighborhood. Because it’s next to impossible to send funds directly to anyone in Syria, donations go through a French group called Syria Charity. Those interested in following the story of Aljaleel and these cats can join a Facebook group called Il Gattaro D’Aleppo. It currently has more than 7,000 members.

Staying in Aleppo is a potentially deadly undertaking. Aljaleel knows he and his family are at constant risk.

“Every day, when I leave my house, I know I might not return,” Aljaleel told Newsweek. “In Syria, it’s only going from bad to worse.”

Take a moment to send some positive thoughts Aljaleel’s way. He’s a courageous animal lover, risking his life for the sake of the cats — and the people — who need him. Few others would do something so selfless and so dangerous. Mohammad Alaa Aljaleel is a special kind of hero.

This Coffee Shop Opens Its Doors Every Night To Stray Dogs | The Dodo

Life or Lunch?

While it may not be possible to open your home to every stray pet in need, an open heart can be just as accommodating.

A photo has been making the rounds on social media showing a group of stray dogs napping comfortably on a bench of cushions as a result of one business’s act of kindness. The image was reportedly snapped at a café in Greece, where management sees fit to offer refuge to homeless pups after closing up each evening.

The cafeteria Hot Spot in Mytilene, Lesbos, once customers leave, opens its doors to local stray dogs so they can use the sofas and “sleep without being cold,” writes Greek blog Zoosos.

Such random acts of generosity toward animals isn’t uncommon in Greece, which has a large number of stray dogs. Despite being without a permanent home or family, these animals are often collared and cared for…

Something to bear in mind as Mother’s Day approaches…

Are there chicken sheds in heaven?

Next time you eat a piece of meat, take a moment to think about the fact that it had a mother.

If it’s pork you’re eating – think about that piglet being removed from it’s mother within just a few days of being born and slaughtered within 3 – 6 months.

If it’s lamb you’re eating – know that it was removed from its mother within a few months of being born and killed within 3 – 10 months.

If it’s chicken you’re eating – know that it was never even allowed to meet it’s mother and was killed within 6 weeks of being born.

If it’s beef you’re eating – know that they have been slaughtered within just 1 to 2 years.

Go Vegan or Die

Exposing the Big Game


On the tip of one my K2 Apache Outlaw skis is a sticker of a skull and crossbones with the shocking statement, “Go Vegan or Die.” That sentiment might seem mean-spirited unless taken as fair warning about the very real health risks associated with eating meat—such as the greatly increased risk of cancer.

Like the anti-smoking campaign slogan, “Quit Smoking or Die,” “Go Vegan or Die” is simply good advice for people seeking longevity. (Stone-age meat-eaters seldom lived past 30, after all.)

There’s also a less-charitable motive for the slogan on the sticker. Anybody who has been the victim of thoughtless mockery from a meat-eater for the selfless act of eschewing animal flesh would be tempted to use the slogan, “Go Vegan or Die,” as would anyone frustrated by the results of their futile attempts to help others see that animal slaughter is cruelty and humans can live quite happily on…

Scientists Discover That Eyes Are Windows To The Soul - by F. Kaskais

Indigo Eyes

by Steven Bancarz, Spirit, Science & Metaphysics

The eyes are the windows to the universe, and some would say they are also windows to the soul. We have heard this phrase get passed around before: “The eyes are the windows of the soul”. People usually say this when they can see pain, anger, or some other emotion in somebody else’s eyes, but recent research gives a whole new meaning to this phrase. Eyes not only windows to emotions, they are windows to the soul.

How? The answer has to do with the actual eyeball itself. Everyone has a different structure of lines, dots and colours within the iris of their eye. Some people may have similar eye colour to each other, but the lines and dots on the iris are as unique as a fingerprint.

Although they vary from person to person, there are certain patterns contained within the iris…

On Morality: Are Human Animals Superior To Nonhuman Animals?

The Legacy Of Pythagoras


In my opinion, the most fundamental problem in AR debates right now is the fact that we are not continuously addressing the myth that humans are morally superior to nonhumans. This idea needs to be eradicated before any truly revolutionary thinking about Animal Rights can begin on the part of morally confused humans. This idea is so ingrained that it’s completely invisible to almost everyone, and it’s the underlying structure for all irrational, harmful moral double-standards regarding human-nonhuman interaction. There is no speciesism without Human Supremacy.

The single most overlooked, and at the same time most foundational error in logic whenever anyone tries to justify human animals exploiting nonhuman animals is the irrational idea that humans in general are morally superior to nonhumans. This idea can be easily disproved, and yet most people do not even question it. It is assumed to be indisputable when it’s not based on, as some would…

Tak passing

From Danica;

It’s with utmost sorrow and profound grief that we sadly announce the passing of our gorgeous little boy Tak.

Although we knew he didn’t stand a chance against the deadliest cat virus there is, a tiny glimmer of hope persisted almost until the end. Even if only one in a million is strong and lucky enough to win this losing battle, maybe he could’ve been that one? Sadly, FIP has claimed yet another angel…

Not so long ago, Tak was a joyous and sparkling kitty boy, full of life and loved to bits. But once the first symptoms of the most feared cat disease showed up, the decline was rapid and all of his youthful vigor disappeared at a frightening rate.

Only the sparkle in his big, bright eyes remained the same until the end.

Fly free now, my little sweetie. You’ll purr forever in our hearts.

Hiker who freed trapped eagle due in court today

January 22, 2015 at 5:35 am

A bald eagle was lying on the ground, each leg shut inside traps. When Juneau resident Kathleen Adair came across it scouting a trail for a group hike, the eagle was alive and looking at her. She spent an hour freeing it.

But there’s more to the story. Two and a half weeks later, Alaska Wildlife Troopers cited her for the hindrance of lawful trapping. She now faces a potential $500 fine and 30 days in jail.

On Dec. 24, Kathleen Adair was on Davies Creek Trail when she saw the eagle in her path. She’s familiar with the Juneau Raptor Center and knew the bird rescue nonprofit would…

Indian City Becomes First Vegetarian City in the World –

Life or Lunch?

8004347224_7e29f9b5a7_zWorldcrunch reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.

About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban. 

Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world – whether animal or human being or a very small creature – has all been given the right to live by God.”

As inpiduals, the best thing you can do to protect animals is to adopt a kind vegan lifestyle. For more information and tips for transitioning to a vegan diet, check out
