Two young brothers, whose family lost everything in a fire, set a remarkable example of compassion and selflessness this week in South Africa after walking miles to save the life of their neighbor’s sick dog.
The boys, 14-year-old Peter and eight-year-old Gerry, carried the German Shepherd mix through rough terrain from their tiny farmhouse, which has no running water or electricity, to the Animal Welfare Society (AWS) in Philippi.

Gerry made the trek barefoot as he lost his shoes in the fire. Peter had saved R7 which he was going to put towards buying Gerry a pair of shoes but the brothers opted to spend the money on saving the dog’s life instead.
The Animal Welfare Society shared the remarkable story on its Facebook page, deservedly calling the boys “heroic little souls.”
“These two local heroes need to be publicly lauded for quite literally going the extra mile for their beloved dog,” the AWS noted in the post sharing that they gave Peter a full refund and Gerry a much-needed pair of shoes.
AWS explained that Lady, or Maisie as the boys prefer to call her, was found to be suffering from tick-bite fever which can be fatal especially if left untreated.
“The brothers clearly adore the dog and noticed that she was unwell when she went off her food,” the organization shared in the post. “They did not want her to suffer and deteriorate so they cleverly decided to bring her to us for assessment and treatment at their earliest opportunity. We NEVER turn any animal in need away.”

“We hope that their devotion, compassion and initiative inspires other pet owners to take good care of their pets, to be alert to when their pets appear unwell and very importantly to treat their pets for ticks and fleas and to never hesitate to seek professional veterinary advise and care,” continued the post.
The organization further explained that since Lady was admitted by minors they sent a nurse to the farm to discuss the case with their parents and obtained written consent to use the photographs of the two boys for general media and educational purposes.
“Whatever we end up investing in saving Lady will be money well spent and warm our donors’ hearts,” AWS shared. “For now, our primary focus is on Lady and we hope that this heart-warming case will inspire the public to show support for us so that we can continue to assist other deserving cases.
Generous people are responding to the post with donations and offers to help not only the dog but the boys and their family!
For more information on how to get involved in helping, please contact Allan at 078 631 5126 or email him at allanperrins@awscape.org.za.
Donations to the Animal Welfare Society in Philippi can be made HERE!
AWS shared its banking details for people wanting to donate towards Lady aka Maisie’s care. It also noted that those doing an EFT should put “Maisie” as the reference and then email proof of payment to admin@awscape.org.za so that it can be properly allocated.

Serbia: Horrific Kill Shelter Exposed In Ruma – Team Go In On 21/5/19 To Save As Many Dogs As Possible.

Breaking! NSPCA “Horrified” To Find Hundreds Of Horses Starving To Death On South African Military Base – World Animal News

Breaking! NSPCA “Horrified” To Find Hundreds Of Horses Starving To Death On South African Military Base
By Lauren Lewis – May 8, 2018

Inspectors from the National Council of SPCAs (NSPCA) were horrified to discover that horses in the care of the South African Army Special Infantry Capability (SAASIC) unit of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) were starving to death.
According to a statement released by the organization and a post on its Facebook page yesterday, “25 horses on the army base were in such emaciated condition or compromised state of health that to prevent further suffering they had to be euthanized.

In 2013, the SANDF and NSPCA entered into a Memorandum of Understanding which was formally signed in May 2016, but the SANDF has continually reneged on the agreement, particularly the SAASIC Unit, with regards to their responsibilities to adequately care for the animals in their control.
Their failure to secure suitably qualified personnel or adequate facilities, combined with a non-empathetic infrastructure that has repeatedly failed the animals in their care, has resulted in a complete breakdown in the welfare conditions afforded to the horses.
The main herd had no food, the horses had no other option but to eat soil and their own feces. Food was only provided to the horses after the NSPCA forced the SAASIC unit into taking emergency action to secure adequate feed for the animals due to process restrictions.
Further investigations revealed that prior to this inspection, the Military Veterinary Institute (MVI) had to step in and euthanize starving horses and treat others as a result of ongoing neglect.
A further 169 horses are currently being kept on the Potchefstroom property in the North West Province which is overstocked, has inadequate shelter, and is a hazardous environment for these animals.
The NSPCA will be laying criminal charges against the persons responsible for the suffering of these horses.
The NSPCA is an organization which struggles with funding and receives no assistance from the government, we rely on the public to continue the much-needed work that we do. The NSPCA will need to continually check on the remaining horses to ensure that they are being adequately cared for. This is a huge strain on already scarce resources that come from the generous public – these resources should not have to be spent on ensuring that the government upholds the law.

WAN Update: Important Information Regarding The Aftermath Of The Volcanic Eruption For People, Pets & Exotic Animals On The Big Island Of Hawaii – World Animal News

WAN Update: Important Information Regarding The Aftermath Of The Volcanic Eruption For People, Pets & Exotic Animals On The Big Island Of Hawaii
By Lauren Lewis – May 8, 2018

Sadly, as the local residents on the Big Island of Hawaii continue to grapple with aftermaths of the Kilauea volcano eruption on Thursday and a 6.9-magnitude earthquake on Friday, they must still plan ahead should there be any more disasters.
As of this morning, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory confirms that active venting of lava and hazardous fumes continues in the Leilani Estates Subdivision and a total of 10 fissures have occurred.
Since the initial eruption, more than 1700 people have had to evacuate their homes; sometimes with little notice.
What about the animals?
While some people either evacuated with their pets in tow, others were allowed to briefly stop by their homes yesterday to rescue pets that were left behind. Tragically, many remain in peril.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno said that while they are currently not letting people in the area with the proper respiratory gear, they have discussed rescuing animals with the Humane Society.
According to KHON News, a Hawaii County worker who is also an animal lover, is currently working Humane Society staff to enter the area with a fire department technician.
While they have not set up a formal mechanism yet, Magno said, “if residents contact the Humane Society and let them know where their residence is located, what the situation is in their home, and what animals they need to be rescued, they will work out a process.”
Contact the Hawaii Island Humane Society at 808-329-8002.
Pets
People with pets can find temporary shelter at either the Pāhoa Community Center located at 15-3022 Kauhale Street or the Kea‘au Community Center at 16-186 Pili Mua Street.
The Pet-friendly shelters are in need of volunteers to help register people and their pets as they arrive. If you are available, the Hawaii Island Humane Society requests that you call the Keaau shelter at 808-966-5458. They are also in need of dog and cat food and new or used sheets and towels.

The Hawaii Island Humane Society has also issued the following guidelines to help keep animals safe in the event of an evacuation:

All pet owners should be safe and prepared. If you are advised to evacuate, please consider your pet’s safety. Do not leave animals behind.
Develop your plan now for their ongoing care including transportation requirements. Reach out to family and friends to discuss arrangements in the event of an evacuation.
If you need to organize boarding elsewhere, get in touch with a boarding facility for advance arrangements.
The HIHS Keaau Shelter does not board animals. Do not drop off animals here.
Pahoa Community Center and Keaau Senior Center are pet-friendly shelters. The dogs and cats are being housed at the shelters with their owners. Note that 61 dogs and 35 cats have been dropped off since the evacuation notice was issued.
Larger animals including horses and livestock may need to be moved well in advance. Call friends or family members to locate alternate pastures.
Gather items for your pet’s emergency kit which should include the following items: Crate, Leash, Food, Water, Bowls, Towel, Identification, and Medication if applicable.
Donations can be made to the Hawaii Island Humane Society, here. http://worldanimalnews.com/wan-update-the-big-island-of-hawaii-important-information-for-people-pets-exotic-animals/!

Exotic Animals
Three Ring Ranch, Hawaii’s only fully-accredited, USDA licensed, exotic animal sanctuary, updated its Facebook page on May 4th while assuring their followers the volcanic eruption is on the other side of the island so the flow is in no way endangering the facility.
“We are offering our services to owners of exotic animals that may need to be sheltered via the disaster management group and the Humane Society. Only for exotics. We are in touch with the USDA who are offering help should we need it,” the organization explained in the post. “For those on the island, please consider being prepared to help if needed. Email or message if we can count on your aide. For those on the mainland, this would be a great time to go online and make a donation. We are ordering feed in advance via USPS as shipping may be disrupted and this is insanely costly.”
Contact Three Ring Ranch at 808-331-8778 or email Animals@ThreeRingRanch,org.
The postal address is as follows: Ann and Norm Goody at Three Ring Ranch, Inc., 75-809 Keaolani Dr., KAILUA KONA, HI 96740-8815.
As of now, the sanctuary has not been called to help any animals but if anyone hears of any exotics in need of help, they are ready to lend a hand noting that their “quarantine room is ready and waiting and we can capture, and sedate if needed.”
Donations to Three Ring Ranch can also be made here. http://worldanimalnews.com/wan-update-the-big-island-of-hawaii-important-information-for-people-pets-exotic-animals/!
People can also call The Salvation Army at 808-756-0306 for information concerning in-kind or monetary donations, or prepared meals.
WAN will continue to update this story.

3 Alleged Dog Meat Traders Arrested In The Philippines; Help Needed To Care For Rescued Dogs – World Animal News

BREAKING NEWS
By Lauren Lewis –
April 19, 2018
Following extensive surveillance work and a recent raid, three people suspected to be members of a dog meat trading group have been arrested in the Philippines.
Animal welfare organization, International Aid for the Protection and Welfare of Animals (IAPWA) which collaborated with its partner Animal Kingdom Foundation (AKF) and the local authorities on the case, announced the news on its Facebook page.
While IAPWA noted that most of the photos from the raid were extremely graphic and not suitable for posting, the organization did include a photo of four dogs that were discovered on-site who have now been rescued and are safe at the sanctuary.
According to the organization, the rescued dogs were due to be killed by the traders who are suspected to have been slaughtering approximately 40 dogs a week.
“A dozen animal carcasses were also found,” IAPWA shared in its post noting that the raid took place in a region in the south of Luzon, which is known to supply dog meat to the North. “These illegal activities are carried within an underground market and this work is highly dangerous for the investigation team.”
“This is the fourth raid in recent months which has seen all traders involved arrested and one by one we will close down these activities through this project,” IAPWA continued. “At the sanctuary, there are many victims of this trade and with new rescues coming in, we are appealing for donations to support them through their rehabilitation.”
“These dogs really need your help and with your support,” stated the organization, “we can achieve this for them and many others who need all of us to fight on their behalf against this injustice and cruelty.”
People are encouraged to make donations to IAPWA either through PayPal at enquiries@iapwa.org

Morgan Tucker started this petition to Saint Francois County Prosecuter

In Febuary 2018 Jason Hampton, of Farmington MO shot a yellow lab known as Trooper and paralyzed him. He then hit him over the head with a hammer, dumped him, and left him for dead. Trooper laid paralyzed and alive for weeks, sitting in his own feces and urine for so long it began burning through his flesh. Trooper has a long road ahead of him, and will most likely never fully recover from his injuries. He will need around the clock care, daily vet visits, and someone to dedicate their entire life to him. People from around the country have donated towards his $10,000+ vet bill. We also ask the defendant make monetary donations to animal rescues as part of his sentence, and be fired from his position with St Francois County. He admitted to the Crime, but when charged he recanted his statement and placed blame on the dog. We are asking that you file charges and pursue the maximum penalty allowed under the law.

Terrified Dog Guardian Got Arrested Rushing His Dog to the Hospital – Let’s Help Him Cover the Expenses | One Green Planet

Aleksandra Pajda
December 5, 2017 

Thor, a three-year-old Doberman pinscher, had the unbelievable bad luck of getting into a grave accident in front of his own home in Holliston, Massachusetts. The dog, a beloved pet of his carers, Peter and Eunice Rogaishio, was struck by not one but two cars – and needed immediate medical care.

After the accident, Thor’s carer, Rogaishio was in shock. He waited for Animal Control to arrive, but during heavy rush hour, they were clearly taking too long. Finally, he decided not to risk the dog’s life any longer – and put Thor in the back of his car to get him to IVG MetroWest in Natick as soon as possible.

Desperate to help his dog in time, Rogaishio illegally passed several vehicles, one being a Natick Police Officer. Rogaishio was pulled over and arrested on the spot. Seeing the dog lying lifelessly in the back seat and the blood on the man, the police took his truck and rushed Thor to the emergency room at the clinic.
Miraculously, Thor emerged from the accident victorious! He was transported to Tufts Medical in Grafton with three broken legs – compound breaks to both of the front legs and a shattered femur. He also suffered facial injuries and has a number of other wounds.
Fortunately, the police did recognize that there were extenuating circumstances that made Rogaishio drive the way he did. At his hearing, he was ordered to complete a traffic safety course in the next two months.

The estimated cost of Thor’s medical care is $22,000 – which does not include the months of recovery ahead of him. To help his family with the immense costs, Lisa Zais, who witnessed the moments right after Thor’s accident, created a crowdfunding page. 

“Thor’s will to survive is amazing, he has the heart of a lion!” she writes about the pup. The beloved dog has a long way to get back to health yet – but the worst is already behind him and, with a little bit of help, he will hopefully have the chance to forget all about the ill-fated day of his accident altogether.

You can help Thor and his family by donating to his medical care via his GoFundMe page.

Mass Demonstrations Against Massacres of Strays in Bosnia

IN MEMORY OF VUČKO

Dalida Kozlic L.L.B, lawyer and activist writes:

Mass demonstrations against massacres of stray dogs in Bosnia will be held in front of the Parliamentary Assembly in Sarajevo on November 11th.

Animal rights activists, volunteers and citizens have organised this demonstration in order to show the authorities that stray dogs are not alone and that there are people who fight for their rights.

Official demands are:

The Protection and Welfare of Animals of Bosnia Herzegovina laws were ratified eight years ago. Since then the authorities of Bosnia Herzegovina have allowed many politically eligible people and companies to own public shelters for stray animals that haven’t been built, registered nor established in accordance with the laws on establishing and conditions that shelters for stray animals must fulfil in Bosnia Herzegovina.

Dogs in those illegal public shelters are not identified or registered and they are killed illegally in notorious ways. Corpses of…

Environmental organizations see an outpouring of support post-election | Grist


Environmental organizations see an outpouring of support post-election
By Emma Foehringer Merchant on Nov 28, 2016

Since Election Day, human-rights organizations like Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the NAACP have seen their donations spike. “This is the greatest outpouring of support for the ACLU in our nearly 100-year history,” its executive director announced. “Greater than the days after 9/11.”

That goodwill has also spilled over into the coffers — and membership lists — of environmental organizations. While it’s too soon to tell how much green groups will collect in the wake of the election, this month’s flood of support could come as a boon to organizations that usually receive a small portion of philanthropic giving. Environmental and animal welfare groups traditionally rank low on the list of causes Americans donate to. In 2015, they received just 3 percent of total donations, far less than churches, schools, hospitals, even arts and culture.

It seems that President-elect Donald Trump’s promises to overturn Obama-era environmental regulations and ditch an international climate agreement have spurred those angered by election results to vote with their wallets.

This real news is powered by you. Support Grist

“The incoming administration threatens to roll back environmental protections across the board,” said Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen in a statement. With renewed support, Van Noppen said, Earthjustice plans to provide a line of defense against these rollbacks, by deepening its legal team and increasing the number of clients it represents — already more than 600 — in legal battles.

Many other environmental organizations are making similar pleas, seeking financial support to fight the Trump administration’s damaging environmental agenda. Every environmental organization Grist contacted said it had seen an increased level of engagement in some way.

The climate action group 350.org has gained tens of thousands of new supporters since Election Day, spokesman Jamie Henn said, and has seen donations surge. The organization’s petition to stop climate denier Myron Ebell from running the Environmental Protection Agency gained over 20,000 signatures in a few days.

Friends of the Earth, too, is raking in money at an unprecedented level: four times faster than before the election, according to development director Peter Stocker. The Sierra Club said it has gained more than 15,000 new monthly donors since the election, double the number that joined during the rest of the calendar year. Earthjustice has seen a 711 percent increase in online donors over last month, and during the week of Nov. 7, the group saw a 707 percent increase in new online donors compared to the same week in 2015.

The Environmental Defense Fund has seen similar upticks. “Without any special prompting from us, people are energized about protecting the progress we’ve made,” membership director Sam Parry said in a statement. “Apparently the sixth stage of grief is activism.”

Those numbers will mean big green groups can widen their campaigns and increase their digital outreach — one Grist editor has received up to four Sierra Club fundraising emails a day since the election — but not everyone in the climate movement is convinced that more money alone will make a difference.

“We need a surge of people into the streets, and the jails,” says Wen Stephenson, author of What We’re Fighting For Now Is Each Other, a book on climate activism. “We need more resistance camps like at Standing Rock, only everywhere.”

Others in the movement agree that Trump-era environmentalism will need to be an on-the-ground battle, because it will be difficult, if not impossible, to make progress in Washington with a Trump administration and GOP-dominated Congress. “Now that the inside game is so difficult, the outside game is even more important,” said 350.org’s Henn. (Note: 350.org founder Bill McKibben is a member of the Grist board of directors.)

Other green groups are seeing a surge of interest in organizing and direct action, too. Greenpeace cites a boost in calls and emails from people asking what they can do, as well as more people signing up for training.

Stocker, at Friends of the Earth, expects an increase in activists and volunteers at the community level as people reach out to friends, family, and anyone else looking to get involved and work across movements.

“People are telling us that this election shook them to the core,” Stocker said. “Those who had never been to a rally or protest are itching to get out and make their voices heard.”

Rescue of 300 Dogs From Dog Meat Farm: NamiKim.org . Tuck Wah Siew

spiritandanimal.wordpress.com

27.05.2016

On 14th May 2016, I spent my birthday with Nami Kim, a dog activist from Seoul who has spent the past 4 years campaigning against the dog meat trade in Korea.

Disguising as an International Animal Welfare Abuse Officer, we put pressure on the dog farm in Bucheon, South Korea, to shut its doors. It was terrifying. Many moments, I thought we going to get beaten up when tempers flared.

We were given a once-in-a-lifetime look into the bellows of a dog meat farm. It wasn’t easy; dozens and dozens in rusty cages; wagging their tails still at us despite what humans have done to them. At the back, the slaughter house, where fresh blood and meat still hung in the air. There is no way anyone witness this and keep their tears from flowing.

After hours of negotiation, the farmers relented – they are, in…

There are approx 30 dogs being cared for and they have been without food now for a few days.

FIVE of these dogs are READY FOR TRAVEL to be adopted ( all required testing, vaccines, certificates are completed).

Due to lack of funding and the recent loss of electricity ( and no help in sight) the founder is struggling to find a solution and may end up opening the gates in the hopes that these dogs may have a better chance on the streets.

I have been a dedicated supporter for approx 2 years and have been impressed with the dedication, knowledge, high level of integrity and enormous level of care given to these unfortunate animals.

Dog chained her whole life, living in horrific conditions – FREED!

IN MEMORY OF VUČKO

10952564_10205601380531181_1306296589823638500_nA few days ago Mia Ožegović made a post on Facebook about a dog her friend had discovered living in the yard of a house in the city centre of Sarajevo, Bosnia Herzegovina. The dog was chained by a 1 metre rusted chain and living in horrific squalor. It was clear the chain never came off… and most likely the poor dog lived on the end of it 24 hours a day, day in, day out for all of her young life. She’s a purebred Belgian Shepherd (malinois) female, probably about 2 years old.
