Make a Quick Phone Call To Tyson and McDonald’s to go Vegan

Petition Update

Apr 1, 2019 —

It’s April Fools’ Day, so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for some fun! But you can help make vegan food a reality on McDonald’s menu TODAY with a quick phone call to the fast food giant at 1-800-244-6227, option 2.

Tyson Foods recently announced plans to launch its own “alternative protein” after hearing from hundreds of thousands of you who are flocking from the poultry giant’s cruelty. What that protein will be is still unknown, but with Tyson’s major customer McDonald’s now dipping its toes into plant-based innovation at its Chicago HQ and in the UK, we wondered whether a Tyson veggie burger could be on the horizon for McDonald’s full US menu.

Just over a year ago, Compassion Over Killing’s investigation exposed horrific abuse in Tyson’s supply chain. Though the farm was not a McDonald’s supplier, chickens across the country suffer similar abuse in factory farms.

Since the investigation, Tyson, the nation’s largest poultry producer, has taken some promising steps: increasing its investment in vegan company Beyond Meat, introducing its own plant-based bowls, investing in mushroom protein, and now foreshadowing its own foray into vegan meats.

Last fall, Tyson snapped up McDonald’s major chicken nugget supplier, Keystone Foods, positioning itself as an even bigger partner to the fast-food chain. And in January, Tyson created the position of President of McDonald’s Global Business to focus even more heavily on its relationship with the massive fast food chain.

Meanwhile, as a powerful coalition of animal protection organizations, including Compassion Over Killing, campaigns against the suffering of chickens in McDonald’s supply chain, it, too is taking notice: First, it debuted the McVegan in Sweden and Finland, which was followed by its first-ever vegan burger in the US at its Chicago HQ, along with a vegan Happy Meal in the UK.

Millions of consumers are waking up to the miserable lives of birds in the chicken industry, who are bred to grow so unnaturally large so quickly that their legs often cripple under their morbidly obese bodies, and are crammed by the thousands in filthy, windowless sheds. Tyson and McDonald’s both have an opportunity to leap ahead into the plant-based revolution–instead of being left in the dust.

Spread your wings for these birds, and help make a Tyson veggie burger on McDonald’s menu a reality: Call McDonald’s at 1-800-244-6227, option 2, and politely ask for a vegan burger nationwide!

Don’t forget to let us know how your call went by emailing campaigns@cok.net. Thanks for helping us make compassionate eating business as usual.

Thanks to your support this petition has a chance at winning! We only need 28,701 more signatures to reach the next goal – can you help?Take the next step!

Petition update · “Willing to Die for America’s Liberty: Remembering LaVoy Finicum” · Change.org

Jul 29, 2018 — By Justin O Smith

Nothing in the pursuit of justice will ever restore the Finicum Family’s joy and happiness, that they experienced, with LaVoy Finicum home and alive with them, but Jeanette Finicum has pursued justice from the day her husband was so unnecessarily shot down on a lonely stretch of Highway 395, due to his role as one of the leaders of the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Preserve.

Her perseverance has resulted in the trial of Joseph Astarita, the FBI agent who fired the shots and ignited the hailstorm of bullets that ended LaVoy’s life, an ignoble act by the FBI and law enforcement who took part in the ambush, reminiscent of their action against Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge.

His trial underway as of this July 24th, Astarita stands accused of falsely denying that he fired two shots at LaVoy, and he is charged with three counts of making false statements, by U.S. Attorney Billy Williams, and two counts of obstruction of justice. However, through scientific methods and aerial video of the ambush, it has been determined that it was Astarita who fired the first shots, as LaVoy exited his truck, something Astarita’s lawyers still refute. They state a belief that it was one of the Oregon Highway Patrol, who fired those first shots.

Robert LaVoy Finicum led a small band of protesters, including Cliven Bundy’s sons, Ryan and Ammon, American Patriots, who understood that the federal government and the Bureau of Land Management were consistently and constantly acquiring or simply taking land unconstitutionally, from farmers and ranchers across America. These men and women were standing firm for property rights under Our Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution, when they occupied Malheur, near Burns, Oregon, on January 2nd 2016 and began a stand off with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, detailed by Les Zaitz in The Oregonian, that lasted forty-one days.

Since they had left the refuge before without incident, they expected this day, on January 26th 2016, to be no different. Imagine their shock, when the ambush and shooting occurred soon after LaVoy, Ryan and Ammon Bundy and Shawna Cox and Victoria Sharp, along with several others, started on their way to meet peacefully with Grant County Sheriff Glenn Palmer in John Day County. They had viewed their act of civil disobedience as a simple demonstration, much less severe and dangerous than other protests generated by Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street, who were destroying entire cities without any real consequence from law enforcement.

After successfully evading the first road block, LaVoy told his friends [3 minutes 9 seconds mark], “Better understand how this thing is going to end. I’m going to be laying down on the ground with my blood on the street, or I’m going to see the sheriff. We got people en route.”

According to Robert Cary, Astarita’s lawyer, it was at this point that one Oregon State Patrolman radioed ahead to “Officer 1” and stated, “We’re going to have to shoot LaVoy Finicum.”

At the second roadblock, shots rained down on LaVoy’s truck before he ever stopped, forcing him to plow into a snow bank, allegedly just narrowly missing an FBI agent. And, as he jumped from the truck, to draw fire from his friends, with his hands raised above his head, two shots rang out, one shattering the driver’s side passenger window and striking Ryan Bundy in the shoulder.

In Shawna Cox’s video of the ambush, one hears the police telling him to “Get down” and LaVoy yelling, “You’re gonna have to shoot me”. Cox is heard asking, “Damn it, are they shooting him? … You assholes.”

The April 24th 2018 amendment [see page 51, number 269] to Jeanette Finicum’s current lawsuit for the wrongful death of her husband speaks volumes:

“The FBI, OSP and other defendants have publicly defended the deliberate ambush and murder of LaVoy on January 26, 2016, by alleging that after he exited the vehicle, and after he had been shot with at least five lethal rounds (as well as unknown number of non-lethal rounds), and after he repeatedly placed his hands on top of his head in a surrender position; that he appeared to be reaching into his jacket.”

One of the most damning points within Mrs Finicum’s complaint, found on page 33, highlights the fact that “at the time of the so-called ‘traffic stop’, there was still no sworn affidavit or probable cause statement or indictment against LaVoy or any of the passengers” — his friends accompanying him. Neither was there any arrest warrant for anyone involved.

Witnesses are on record noting that Astarita’s face was contorted after the shooting, and he was loud and “so amped up” that a supervisor had to calm him down. Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Sussman also noted: “Only one guy [Astarita] stood in just the right spot. … Only one guy aimed right at Robert ‘LaVoy’ Finicum’s pickup [and] fired two shots in rapid succession.”

Astarita’s trial follows a growing resentment among American patriots for a federal bureaucracy that is out of control, even to the point of committing sedition, possibly treason, against a sitting U.S. president. It also doesn’t help that the FBI has a long history of arbitrary, tyrannical actions, detailed by Leah Sottile, such as witnessed in 1992, when an FBI team descended on Ruby Ridge and the home of Randy Weaver, a U.S. Army Special Forces Veteran, and a sniper murdered Vicki Weaver, as she stood in the cabin doorway holding the couple’s baby.

Just before stepping from LaVoy’s truck, hands raised, Ryan Bundy looked out and saw LaVoy lying in the snow. He turned towards Shawna Cox and Victoria Sharp and said, “LaVoy is dead.”

It doesn’t really matter, in the end, whose bullets killed LaVoy, because it shouldn’t have ended like this anyway. LaVoy had time and again stated a desire to make sure that the stand off ended peacefully, and up until the day of the ambush, there wasn’t any reason to believe that it wouldn’t, since LaVoy had been in constant contact with Sheriff Glenn Palmer, who was quite sympathetic to the cowboy’s cause. These men weren’t “anti-government”; they were anti-tyranny.

During the 2016 trial that acquitted Ammon Bundy and six other defendants, the FBI and Oregon Highway Patrol both testified they could not have identified specific legal reasons for the stop. This can only mean that had law enforcement not escalated the situation, LaVoy Finicum would have also been acquitted and alive and well at home with his family.

Robert Lavoy Finicum was willing to die for his ideas, the Constitution and freedom, and as we rise to a new sun each day, we must work in this America, the home of the brave and the land of the free, to ensure that not any future Democrat led administration, or any administration, can ever target conservative protests in such an egregious manner, impeding liberty each step of the way and executing us at will. The Finicum’s fight to hold the federal government accountable for its arrogant lawlessness, dishonesty and violence is America’s fight.

LaVoy was a good man, gunned down in cold blood. And whether or not any degree of justice comes out of this trial, God’s accounting awaits each of us one day. I pray to God justice be served and the Finicum Family finds peace of mind and heart.

Keep fighting for people power!

Iceland’s Minke Whales Just Got A Reprieve From Slaughter

Anti-whaling advocates are celebrating an early end to Iceland’s commercial hunt for minke whales for the year.

Despite an international moratorium on commercial whaling, Iceland, Norway and Japan have continued to senselessly slaughter

Out of this year’s self-imposed quota of 262 minke whales, only six were killed making it the lowest number to have lost their lives since the country resumed commercial whaling in 2003. It’s six too many, but the decline, along with the reasons the hunt ended early, are promising signs this industry is on its last legs.

Local media reports cited high costs, low profits and a declining interest in whale meat as reasons for such a poor hunting season. According to the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), Gunnar Jonsson, spokesperson for IP Fisheries, Iceland’s main minke whaling company, also added the enlargement of a whale sanctuary in Faxafloi Bay near the capital of Reykjavik last year.

The area has historically been an ideal hunting ground, but the expansion of the sanctuary has added to difficulties by making whalers travel much further to hunt whales outside the area, which has already made it much less economically viable.

“This is very good news for minke whales and Iceland,” said Sigursteinn Masson, Iceland Representative for IFAW. “Ending minke whaling will have a very positive impact on the far more economically viable commercial whale watching industry.”

While minke whale meat is sold in Iceland, a poll commissioned by IFAW found that only one percent of Icelanders eat it regularly, while another 82 percent said they never eat it. Tourists, on the other hand, continue to be a driving force behind the demand but interest has also declined since IFAW launched its Meet Us Don’t Eat Us campaign in 2011 to help educate people about the industry. More restaurants have also committed to taking whale meat off of their menus.

Hopefully more awareness about the issue will help drive this industry into the past where it belongs, and whale watching will take its place as a far more lucrative and sustainable business.

“IFAW will continue to campaign against whaling which is cruel, wasteful and unnecessary. IFAW’s successful campaign against minke whaling in Iceland was done with understanding and respect for Iceland and its people, and in building alliances within the country that focus on what is best for Iceland and for whales,” added Masson.

Even that minke whales are safe for the year, endangered fin whales are still being targeted, and 57 of them have already been killed, including a rare blue/fin whale hybrid, which recently sparked outrage.

For more on how to help end whaling in Iceland, check out organizations including IFAW, Sea Shepherd and Whale and Dolphin Conservation.

You can also help keep the pressure on right now by signing and sharing the petition New Petition: Icelandic Whalers Have Killed an Iconic and Endangered Blue Whale. Lets Keep Going Whaling Must End! urging Iceland’s Prime Minister to end whaling once and for all.

Petition update · Fantastic Update on Nosey! · Change.org

Aug 2, 2018 —

Dear friends,

Yesterday the news broke that the USDA is initiating a proceeding to terminate Hugo Liebel’s federal exhibitor license. Without this license, Liebel would no longer be allowed to force Nosey to perform in second-rate circuses or provoke her to give rides in parking lots. He is losing his battle to regain custody of Nosey at every turn.

Because this situation is not entirely resolved, we will continue to keep this petition open, and to provide updates when possible on Liebel’s exhibitor license and pending court cases.

While Nosey inches closer and closer to a life of permanent sanctuary, many other elephants are still suffering in circus life. CompassionWorks International has been tracking numerous other elephants, including Tracy and Lisa who are currently confined at Circus World in Baraboo, Wisconsin. As we did on numerous occasions for Nosey, we captured important investigative video of Tracy and Lisa, which experts determined proved that both elephants are experiencing significant gait issues. We hope that you will join us in our effort to seek justice for Tracy and Lisa by signing our newest petition: https://www.change.org/p/scott-o-donnell-circus-world-stop-using-animal-acts

At CWI, we fight against circus cruelty every single day. Please visit cwint.org/donate to continue to support our work and to stand beside us as we continue to fight for Nosey, Viola, Isa, Tracy, Becky, and numerous other elephants still suffering behind the big top.

Thank you once again for all of your actions for Nosey, your vigilance in notifying us when you have seen her or any traveling performing animal, and for supporting CWI in our efforts to put an end to circus cruelty once and for all.

We will will not stop fighting until the use of animals in the circus is relegated once and for all to the history books.

For the animals, Carrie LeBlanc, M.A. Executive Director CompassionWorks International https://www.facebook.com/CompassionWorksIntl/ https://www.instagram.com/compassionworks/ https://twitter.com/cwintl

Jul 26, 2018 — Today ( 7/26/18 ) Disney announced that by Mid-2019, all plastic single use products will be banned at all Disney Parks, Hotels, and Cruise Ships! They said that they decided to ban plastic products after both Starbucks and McDonalds announced that they would also be banning plastic single use products. Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products said ” Eliminating plastic straws and other plastic items are meaningful steps in our long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship.” Thank you to EVERYONE who signed my petition and bought my straws. I will still be fighting for the environment and am still selling reusable straws at http://www.holdthestrawplease.com to raise money for the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. I have sold 50 bags of straws and need to sell 50 more to reach my goal! I recently visited their center and they said that they care for many animals affected by plastic pollution. Let’s keep fighting for what’s right and our environment!

Petition update · ABAL IS HOME! · Change.org

Apr 16, 2018 — Early this morning we braved the hard rain and weather to go pick up K-9 Abal. As he was coming out of the truck to come inside our house I was lucky enough to snap a picture of him giving my husband a kiss. ( I guess all is forgiven, at least for Abal).
These past 12 days have been some of the longest and hardest days for us. The worry for K9 Abal was intense at times not knowing where he was, how he was feeling, and how he was being treated. All that is over now thank God! We can now concentrate on making sure he is happy and healthy. I think I may even start a Facebook and Twitter page for him (now that I have learned how to use it).
When I started this petition I was hoping for maybe at least 500 signatures. I figured I would be lucky to get that. I really didn’t know if I could get K9 Abal back. Needless to say, I am blown away that when all is said and done 169k people signed and supported us! So, THANK YOU! we could NEVER have done this without all of you!
Special thanks to Congressman Bob Brady, who spoke out publicly in support of K9 Abal and our family. Thank you Sen. Sweeney who took the time to write a beautiful letter to Chief Nestel in our defense. Thank you also to the National Police Association, K9s4cops.org, K9 Chip, and his family, and K9 Poseidon and his family. Thank you to the FOTP FOP Lodge 109. A big thanks to the 99% of SEPTA Police who supported us! Thank you to the members of the press who put this story out there for the public to hear. And again to all of you who signed, wrote, called, tweeted, and shared our story. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts❣️

Petition update · Adopted from Pets at Home to be fed to a snake! · Change.org

Apr 14, 2018 — This is Joey. Joey was about 3 months old when he was adopted from Pets at Home last summer. His new owner brought him home and put him in a hamster’s cage next to a vivarium containing a 6ft Burmese python. He had no hay, no water. He wasn’t given a name. He just sat there, waiting to be fed to the owner’s pet snake.

When the time came the owner lifted him out of the cage to put him in the vivarium but Joey bit him out of sheer terror. The owner also got bitten by the snake.

At that point, his girlfriend got cold feet and they decided they couldn’t do it.*

Luckily they contacted Baby Blue Bee Bunnies rescue centre who were able to take the poor terrified rabbit.

Joey was given a name and rehabilitation started. However, due to his traumatic experience, he was very aggressive and it took months to get him to finally relax. Joey was in good hands. The rescue centre gave him the time, the love, the care and the life that he truly deserved.

Joey was adopted and now lives happily with three other bunny friends.

Pets at home claim they have a ‘vigorous system for checking potential pet owners’. Once again they failed. Joey was purchased to become snake food.

Please share Joey’s story and urge Pets at Home STOP selling rabbits!

Rabbits should NOT be sold in pet shops! They should only be adopted from reputable rescue centres who carry out home checks and make sure they don’t end up in the wrong hands.

Rabbits need our help. Thank you for giving them a voice. Thank you for supporting this cause.

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.

Petition update · Update on elephant Anna Louise (+ important info for FL residents) · Change.org

Petition update

Apr 4, 2018 — Dear Friends,

Yesterday, CWI received information from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) regarding the elephant Anna Louise, after we submitted a request for follow-up from them.

As you may recall, CWI filed an emergency complaint with the USDA on behalf of Anna Louise last May. We found abnormalities in her gait, and were concerned about her well-being, as well as the safety of the public who were riding her.

Within two weeks of filing of the complaint, to the best of our knowledge, Anna Louise was taken off the road and has been residing at her “home base”, which is located on the property of her “owner” in Florida.

The FWC promised us late last year that they would in fact inspect the property and follow-up on our USDA complaint. We are pleased to report that they did in fact complete the inspection, which was done extremely thoroughly.

The report showed that Anna Louise is suffering from arthritis in her right elbow and appears to be overweight. While she is under regular care from a veterinarian, it was suggested to Anna Louise’s “owner” Tom Demry that she should lose some weight.

We were pleased to note that Mr. Demry stated that he is considering retiring from circus performances with Anna Louise. CWI encourages Mr. Demry to follow that pursuit, and hopes he will further consider retiring Anna Louise to a sanctuary environment where she can have contact with other elephants and not live out her life as a solitary elephant on his property.

CWI has written to the FWC requesting some additional information. We will keep you apprised of any advancements for Anna Louise.

If you are near Lakeland, FL, tomorrow evening you have a tremendous opportunity to speak out for elephants like Anna Louise. The FWC is holding a public meeting seeking comment on their guidelines for elephant riding, and we strongly encourage you to speak out against elephant riding, which is a danger to both humans and elephants. The meeting details are: 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm on April 5, 2018 at Hampton Inn & Suites, Lakeland South- Polk Parkway, 3630 Lakeland Village Blvd, Lakeland, FL 33803.

Though the successes for animals confined to the circus continue, we still have much work to do. Please email us at info@cwint.org if you are ready to protest a circus heading to your area. You can also visit our site: circusprotest.com to learn more about taking action against circus cruelty.

To support CWI’s actions for Anna Louise and other efforts to end circus cruelty, please visit cwint.org/donate.

Again, thank you for all you do for Anna Louise, and for all animals confined to the circus!

For the animals,

Ridiculous Easter Sheep Race Canceled Thanks to Activist Pressure!

Aleksandra Pajda
Thanks to a campaign by animal activists, a zoo in Shropshire, England has abandoned its annual Easter sheep race. A petition urging Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom to call off the senseless event was signed by more than 52,000 people concerned about the practice and the animals used in it.

The zoo’s Grand National and Gold Cup is seen as one of the biggest days in the sheep racing calendar and had been held for nearly 30 years, The Times reports. This year, however, the organizers had to give in to the overwhelming opposition to the race and to campaigners from the Lambentations group which focuses on sheep racing.

Pressure from activists has successfully shut down four other sheep racing events, as well as a pig race. As the campaigners emphasize, the practice is unnecessary and cruel, and it is aimed solely at human entertainment, which is not an end animals should be used for.

In the event, eight sheep leap over two-foot-tall fences with teddy bear “jockeys“ on their backs. The animals run to reach food at the finish line and the race is surrounded by a live commentary and betting.

Activists’ concerns have been backed by the RSPCA which said the practice is “largely unregulated” and questions “the methods of encouraging sheep to run.” Moreover, the British Veterinary Association stated that even though running towards food was natural for the animals, races could be “stressful and frightening” for the sheep when taking place in front of large crowds.

According to the organizers, the race is no different to dog agility events. This, however, is a very dubious comparison, since dogs taking part in agility competitions are trained for that purpose and again mistakes the animals’ agency with conditioning.

The end of this race marks another success for concerned animal advocates who spoke up for animals who do not have a voice. If you think this is great news, pass it on! And remember, we can all make a difference for animals, so don’t give up!

Petition update · Delaware County Fair 2018 · Change.org

Petition update

Mar 19, 2018 — Since its getting closer to summer and the county fair, I hope we can get the fair board to cancel the Rodeo event for this year if they have it added, and to not allow it and add a better event that could bring in far more people from even surrounding states to visit, spend money at the fair, and join the event.

So please let them know that events harming animals is way in the past and that with a city/county riddled with crime, drugs, and violence, adding to it by hosting violence to animals events won’t help it’s image. Something with no violence and fun for all is a much wiser way to go this year.

Some suggestions for new events this year

Demolition Derby; I’ve seen many in the derby event asking for the event to be held two nights.

Motocross; instead of having a motocross show, have the event with local and surrounding riders. Charge an entry fee like with the derby and have a prize for 1st & 2nd place.

Bring the Dirty Dash to the fair, it’s like the tough mudder.

The Dirty Dash is a mud run obstacle course where a military boot camp meets your inner five-year-old’s fantasy and subsequently converts boy to man and then man to swine. All you’ll need is a complete lack of shame to wallow in pits of mud and a smile to show through at the end! It’s your enhanced pig wresting event without harming any animals and is muddy fun.

So tell the fair you want them to hold events that don’t involve harming animals and instead provide non violent fun for all ages.

Showing a child they can complete a muddy boot camp type course is far better, and better character building than teaching them violence by harming animals. Same for adults.

If there’s an event you’d like to see held this year instead of the rodeo and so they don’t sneak the pig wrestling events back in, please leave your ideas in the comments and send them to the fair board.

Do Better For Chickens · Change.org

Do Better For Chickens · Change.org
ShaRhonda Dawson started this petition to McDonald’s
My two kids love McDonald’s. They especially love the chicken nuggets. As a busy mom, sometimes I need a fast, convenient meal…but I don’t want to compromise on my family’s values. I was pleased to see that McDonald’s committed to 100% cage-free eggs, and that they recently reduced the calories in their Happy Meals. But I was shocked and upset to learn that when it comes to the treatment of chickens raised for their menu items, McDonald’s is lagging behind.

Please join me in asking McDonald’s to stop using chickens who are bred to suffer.

Chickens on factory farms are bred to grow so big, so fast, that they often collapse under their own weight. Many live in constant pain, and they are vulnerable to broken legs and heart attacks. These smart and social birds spend their entire lives in crowded, dimly-lit sheds without even a perch to rest on.

Restaurants like Subway, Burger King, Sonic, and many more have already committed to criteria that reduce the suffering of chickens. They are switching to healthier breeds and giving chickens more room to roam.

If all of these other companies can do it, why can’t McDonald’s?

McDonald’s actually had the chance to do better for chickens in their latest animal welfare policy. They chose not to. Please sign my petition to tell McDonald’s that we don’t need empty promises. We need real change.

I have learned a lot about how animals raised for food are mistreated, and I am deeply saddened by the harsh realities they face. But I still have hope, because I believe that big companies have the power to do the right thing and change things for the better.

As someone who cares about social justice issues, I want to show my children that they really can do something positive in the world. This could be a rare win at a time when our communities are facing so many complex—and often overwhelming—challenges.

I know we can create a kinder, more compassionate world if we raise our voices together. That’s why I’m asking McDonald’s to step up. Not just for my family—but for the millions of living beings who are suffering right now.

If you agree that McDonald’s should do better for chickens, please sign and share my petition today.

Petition Update · Sentenced to 8-10 years · Change.org

Mar 27, 2018 — News Report here: https://fend.ngo/library/puppy-doe-trial-verdict-sentencing/

Breaking news: Radoslaw Czerkawski convicted on 12 counts of animal cruelty yesterday has been sentenced to 8-10 years in prison with two years probation.

While the conviction, announced yesterday, is unprecedented and great news for the animal welfare community, the sentence announced today pales in comparison to the suffering Kiya endured.

Czerkawski’s lawyer stated that there is no reason to believe his client’s behavior could happen again.

Kiya was starved, beaten, cut and burned over a period of months. Someone who is capable of such merciless cruelty will clearly not be fit to will be ready to rejoin society in 8 years.

Petition update · Puppy Doe Trial Verdict In! · Change.org

NZjXVRkJjMpTLRy-800x450-noPad
Mar 26, 2018 — GUILTY on all 12 charges of animal cruelty!

Thank you for supporting this petition for the past 4 1/2 years. As you all know, the trial of the man accused of brutally torturing and starving “Puppy Doe” is underway in a Dedham, Massachusetts courtroom and just this very moment we have learned that a verdict was announced!

Radoslaw Czerkawski is GUILTY of ALL 12 charges of animal cruelty!

Through daily testimony, we’ve learned more horrific details and information about Puppy Doe’s injuries and how she found herself the victim of a Craigslist pet ad.

Czerkawski admitted to purchasing Puppy Doe from a Worcester Massachusetts couple after responding to their Craigslist ad selling a young small pit bull named Kiya. That couple, according to their testimony, previously purchased Kiya from her original owner also via a Craigslist pet ad.

Kiya changed hands TWICE via Craigslist. That would mean that Kiya was passed off twice through a classified ad website ultimately ending up in the hands of a monster. If either owner had worked with a state approved rescue, or had conducted a thorough background check on potential adopters, instead of posting her on Craigslist like a piece of furniture, she might be alive and well in a loving home today.

Since Kiya’s death in August 2013 Craigslist have made zero changes to their policies for posting a pet ad. Simple changes might have prevented similar incidents where pets have fallen into the hands of abusers. Just as in 2013, Craigslist’s current position is that they do not allow the sale of pets on their site. The terms of this policy are the following: “no animal sales or breeding – rehoming with small adoption fee is ok.” Those of us in the rescue field know that these policies are not being enforced. There are countless ads posted by “backyard breeders” and others hoping to profit on the sale or transfer of an innocent animal. Craigslist appears to do nothing to stop this.

FEND will continue its efforts to represent the signers of this petition until Craigslist makes concrete changes to their policies.

Thanks again to all of you who have supported this petition since 2013 and for embracing FEND (https://fend.ngo). In addition to our Craigslist campaign, another important goal for 2018 is to raise funds to cover the costs to become an approved rescue organization in Massachusetts. This will help us grow our foster network and continue to expand our efforts to rescue and rehome displaced pets, many of whom we find via Craigslist.

We will post another update as soon as details on sentencing are released.

Stacey Cobb
Franklin, MA

Mar 10, 2018 — Story behind the campaign:

As a HUGE Animal Advocate, I spend much of my time trying to save animals. Years ago I became involved with trying to help animals at the NYC ACC, after learning just how many were killed daily. This prompted me to start my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/aplacetocallhomefordogs/ which promotes animals in shelters needing homes. Each night the NYC ACC gives many animals, just 18 hours to be reserved before being euthanized, each one is posted on my page. Being so involved in the rescue community, I made many friends and learned of many horrors placed upon animals. This lead me to create a petition for animals left out in inclement weather in NY, that has gained close to 500,000 signatures https://www.change.org/p/senator-marty-golden-state-of-new-york-assembly-members-revise-article-26-3… I plan to follow this through until the laws change to protect animals in NY.

Along with my animal advocacy, I have also become a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator. This is strictly volunteer and can at times be a full time job. Taking in injured and orphaned wildlife can be very time consuming & expensive. For me, the reward of seeing these animals treated and released is immeasurable. As of right now, I have limited space to keep animals, as I currently do this from home. My dream in the future is to have enough land to have my own sanctuary for shelter pets and wildlife. However, what I currently hope for, is to build/buy more enclosures and caging so that I can expand the amount of animals I can take in at one time. It pains me to turn animals away, due to lack of adequate caging. Please feel free to follow my rescues here: https://www.facebook.com/Natures-Nurse-Wildlife-Rehabilitation-158077221600230/

Linked below is a tee or sweatshirt option, promoting animal adoption. However, I have also created a design promoting my wildlife rescue, which can be seen here: https://www.customink.com/fundraising/animalsmatter2

If you’re not interested in a t-shirt but would still like to support my rescues, I always have an Amazon wildlife rehabilitation wishlist going: http://a.co/gapQCKG
