    We don’t expect everyone to agree with us in our fight to pass Question 1 in Maine to stop the cruel and unsporting practices of bear baiting, hounding and trapping. But we do expect a fair election and a government that respects the will of the people, rather than one that attempts impose its will on the people. The ballot initiative process was established as a constitutional right in half the states to be used precisely when obdurate state lawmakers and a governor’s state agencies failed to heed the will of the people.  It’s a safety valve, and it has driven essential reforms…

    As the sun came up over Kodak, Tennessee, yesterday morning, our HSUS Animal Rescue Team drove with U.S. Marshals and the Sevier County's Special Operations Response Team down a long, rural road. As they approached the house at the end of the road, our team members saw just three dogs. But after law enforcement officials entered the house, our team discovered many more dogs cowering in the back of the steep, wooded tract of land.

    If you want to understand why The HSUS and HSLF are working so hard to prevent the trophy hunting, commercial trapping, and hounding of wolves in Michigan, look no farther than the other states in the Great Lakes region and in the Northern Rockies that recently instituted seasons on wolves. Trophy hunters and trappers and hound hunters are taking a big toll, killing a third of the wolves in a single year in some of these states. If this is what “recovery” means, then I am sure the wolves don’t want any of it. Here are the numbers for the 2012 and 2013 alone:   Idaho: Of the 606…

    Comedian Bill Maher made a special appeal to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie – asking him, on the opinion pages of Saturday’s New York Times, to sign a bill banning gestation crates. Noting that polling shows that a rather astonishing 93 percent of New Jersey voters want him to sign the anti-confinement measure, Maher said Christie should make the Garden State the 10th in our country to establish rules that treat pigs better. On October 16th, the day S. 998 cleared the legislature, actor Danny DeVito, also urged Christie to do the right thing.  “Chris, please sign the ban on…

    People, of which I am one, make assumptions about kittens. They say kittens are a blank slate. They say kittens have moldable personalities. People say a lot of things. Katniss (also pictured in thumbnail) takes a brief breather from the nonstop dance party of her life. This one is common: “Kittens are new. Kittens’ personalities are formless and void. We can mold them like Plasticine. They will be what we make them to be.” Ergo, a kitten raised with kisses and bacon is guaranteed to be the lovemuffin of your dreams. If you love him, he will become exactly what you intend.

    Notwithstanding the fact that the NFL has been the most hospitable sanctuary for the vulgar and the violent, (animal abuse, domestic violence, bar fights etc.), I am hopeful that some good will come of the latest horror story involving the Raven's Ray Rice.It is not coincidental that violence against the vulnerable allows for multiple targets in the same setting. In other words spousal abuse and animal abuse, abuse of the disabled and elder abuse and so on and so forth. The crime is the same – the opportunity reveals the victims.

Rejecting a legal challenge to the law, the court declined to hear an appeal filed by restaurants and producers of foie gras. In doing so, the high court left intact an August 2013 ruling by the ninth US circuit court of appeals upholding the law. Continue reading...

There are two separate issues: the extent of suffering, and whether the Home Office rules have been broken.

Even further, if a person is found to have contracted the virus, they are treated, not euthanized. Animals should be afforded the same rights and protections.

    One would be hard pressed to find another animal upon whom so many exploitative and abusive practices converge. The rabbit, in both its domesticated and wild species, is perhaps the prime exemplar of prey animals. It is a gentle, herbivorous, unassuming, and relatively silent creature. This mildness, which is so charming to observe and contemplate, unfortunately seems to practically invite the rabbit's exploitation in myriad ways by the stronger and more powerful---namely, humans.

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:03 pm
    When advocating for the enactment of humane laws, we're sometimes reminded that getting a bill passed by the legislature and signed by the governor means we are “up at halftime going into the locker room.” Before we can have confidence that a new law will have impact, we often have to defend against legal challenges and ensure that it is properly enforced. We rely on all sorts of law enforcement personnel to do this work. But often a key second-half player is the state’s chief law enforcement officer—the attorney general. The HSUS AG Harris stood up for the humane treatment of…

    Whenever we’ve confronted terrible cruelty, there’s always been a fierce effort to defend it. I think of tough fights in Louisiana to ban cockfighting, in California on Prop 2 and extreme confinement, and on bear baying in South Carolina. Seldom do we see unanimous support for reform. There are always opinion leaders who don’t accept the real meaning of animal protection, or others who excuse cruelty or think it’s too much, too fast. That’s certainly the case in Maine, where there is a looming ballot initiative to ban bear baiting, hounding, and trapping. There, some opinion leaders…

    Local and state anti-cruelty statues play a critical role in ensuring the humane treatment of animals in a community. When the right laws are on the books, animals can be removed from potentially dangerous situations, out of the hands of those suspected of abusing and neglecting them. Let’s say, for example, that 20 dogs, seven horses, and 39 chickens are found to be neglected, living and suffering in deplorable conditions on someone’s private property. Then, under a state anti-cruelty ordinance, the animals are seized by law enforcement, and officials proceed to press charges against the…

    Seriously, who doesn't love dogs? All they want to do is love you, lick your face, get their tummy scratched, play with toys. A dog will wait for you to walk in the door every night and make you feel welcome and appreciated, they don't care about their own day, as long as they can express their love to you. They come in all kinds of lovable shapes and sizes, with different kinds of ears, tails, and coats! Speaking of coats, wouldn't it be just awesome if you could get dogs on your coats? You can be as warm as a dog, while wearing a dog, at Cozy Hood, we have a bunch of polar fleece jackets…

    Tigers are some of the most amazing creatures on the planet.  Tigers are my favorite animals.  Back in junior high school, I used to wish my parents got me a tiger so I can take him to school with me and he can fight any bullies I had.  I would ride him to school, about 5 blocks away from my house and he would sit outside the classroom by the window.  He would snarl at any kid who tried to bother me as a warning.  He was my everything.  Then I found out this about Tigers…Tigers are the most magnificent of all the cats!  Tigers will go from stretching in…

    These Jackets have a nice accessible zipper and really nice pockets!  The reversible feature is so cool.  I can change over the from the printed side of the jacket to the solid color whenever it gets dirty.  It washes great too.
