Please sign the petition at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/pit-bull-burnt-alive

Insert from the Daily Voice.


Help the SPCA with the prosecution of the owners who burnt Tammy alive!

Sponsored by:

This insert was in the Daily Voice Newspaper telling of a Pit Bull named Tammy who was burnt to death by her owners!The owners wanted to punish her for jumping over the wall into their neighbors garden, so they fetched her and put her in her kennel and doused it with petrol and set it alight!!Tammy was only found a few days later by Animal Welfare workers who wept when they saw her. Tammy had sustained such severe burns to her legs, belly and face, she was also blinded by the fire.  The SPCA had to eauthenaze Tammy because she was just in too much pain.The heartless couple could face charges of jail up to a year and fines up to R 200 000. This is not enough for what they have done to this innoccent victim! We plead for the maximum possible punishment!

For every 500 signatures I receive I can send it to the SPCA for use in the prosecution of these people.

Tammy’s death will not go unseen, she is an ambassador for all pets around the world! PLEASE help me give these owners a taste of their own medicine?

Please help Gracie…

Okay, I guess you all know by now that I have a very soft spot for all furry four-legged creatures—most especially companion pets in need. I have actually been a bit busy lately since the autumn semester started, what with the deadline for my thesis manuscript looming ominously this October… But when I saw this plea on the net, I just simply couldn’t turn my back and walk away (so to speak). Permit me thus to ask all of you out there to read on, and chip in (even $1 will be appreciated, I’m sure) or help in whatever way you can.


Gracie a 9 year old German Shepard was found in the hills of Tujunga California a very coyote infested area, dumped by an owner who obviously would not keep her with her medical condition.

After one week in rescue Gracie has been evaluated by a specialist and it seems she has DM or Degenerative Myelopathy.Gracie will never regain use of her back legs and as she gets older shecould lose all mobility. She also has a baseball size tumor on herfront body area that must be removed. She had a wheelchair but it didnot fit and was very painful for her.

So far we have raised $1100.00 we need more donations to help pay Gracie’s current medical bill of $700, Her upcoming tumor removal, boarding and Physical Therapy, a wheelchair that fits her properly and a 20 hour round trip transport to get her to her forever home with Critter Crossings Rescue Retirement.

Please help an old girl who just wants to be loved for whatever amount of time she has left.

Help to stop cruel experiments on dogs in a university in Brazil*

the number of innocent victimsOn June 14th 2008 some Brazilian animal rights activists managed to enter in the dog pound of the Medicine department of the UFG University (Federal University of Goiás), Brazil, and they took some pictures of the animals and the conditions they were kept. As it can be seen by the attached photographs, the dogs were found eating each other, ill with mange and in agony, after having undergone vivisection.The dogs have been used for experients of vivisection several times, and then have been put back into the pound with their wounds still open. This practice goes against the Federal Brazilian Law, according to which the rights of animals are protected by the Law 9.605/98, code 32, which says: ‘To cause any sort of abuse, mistreatment, wounds or mutilation to wild animals or pets may be punished with jailing from 3 months to 1 year. The same penalty is valid for whoever makes painful or cruel experiments on live animals, even for learning or scientific purposes, when there are alternative methods.’

There have been many reports to the Public Ministry of the city of Goiânia (capital city of Goiás, Brazil) but all of them have been ignored.
The Rector of the university has denied any sort of mistreatments on dogs, but the pictures prove the contrary. The dogs come from the city dog pound: this proves the sad destiny which awaits the stray dogs of the city.
