Barangay Bel Air. Makati. Victor Gomez. Starved Cats. Charged with Animal Cruelty. Not Fit for Re-Election.

I thought I was lucky to be a stray in such an upscale community. Some kind ladies from an organization named CARA Welfare had me neutered and were feeding me outside their homes.I even heard that they had an agreement with barangay officia...ls for a "Trap-Neuter-Return" arrangement for cats so everything was going great.... until that dark day in December 2007 when I found myself in a cat trap for the second time.
Hours stretched into days and nobody came to feed me and the other 5 cats who were also trapped like me. Nobody came to even give us a drop of water when the sun beat down on our traps, making them sizzling hot. I grew weak and the last thing I ever saw were cats feebly meowing in the other traps and three (3) others who were already unconscious.
When I came to, a kind lady -one of those from CARA- was gently stroking my head. I overheard her saying softly over and over again that she was sorry for what I had to go through because of the lack of a heart and a cons…

Gov. Christie's 2010 Trophy Bear Hunt. Protest. Dover, New Jersey. Blood Lust. Kill the Hunt, Not the Bears.

By one organizer's count, ninety-five people came to this demonstration in Dover, New Jersey. This video was taken before all the protesters arrived at the scene, Route 46 corner Sammis, in front of the Wachovia Bank. With nearly one hundred attendees, this demo sent a clear message that people care about New Jersey's black bears. Some people drove from as far as Camden County. I drove from Bergen County. All of us say the same thing---we disappove of the trophy hunt. Among other things, this organized killing is a waste of New Jersey's money. The pro-hunting groups want us to believe that hunting fees ($2 each) will cover the cost of the trophy hunt. This is not true, and not possible. Cost estimates put this trophy hunt at $2,000,000. As many as 10,000 permits will be open for purchase. If all those permits are bought, as many as 500-700 bears will be killed. However, in the last hunt before Gov. Corzine took office, only half of the available permits were purchased. Thi…

Bear Trophy Hunt 2010. New Jersey. Oppose Gov. Christie and the DEP Chairman Bob Martin.

I am crossposting an alert from the Animal Protection League of New Jersey regarding the scheduled bear trophy hunt in December 2010. Time is running out on our bears who should be considered one of our natural treasures instead of a neighborhood nuisance. I have had bear encounters in the woods of Essex and Sussex county areas, but none of them were harmful nor dangerous at all. The bears are more afraid of us than we are of them. Join demonstrations, write or call government officials, comment on newspaper articles, there are many ways to actively participate in the fight against cruelty and dubious government spending.

============================================

There are Only 49 Days Left to Save Our Bears. Please join the campaign, get active and let everyone you know what's going on!

1. We need your help with getting APLNJ and the BEAR Group a meeting with Governor Christie.

•Ask the governor to meet with hunt opponents NOW!
•Ask him to stop this corrupt bear hunt NOW!

Steven Corn Furs. Paramus, New Jersey. Columbus Day Sale 2010. Your Fur had a Face.

Steven Corn Furs. Doesn't that name strike fear into your heart? I mean, what monstrosity could be within those walls? I call this place, The Morgue on 17. With racks of skin and fur, their real owners no more, the name is well-earned.On this day, the store was having its Columbus Day Sale. Yes, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to save on the finest furs. If you didn't go, you lost out on 10% savings on 100% suffering. But, we went. And the supportive honking from passersby meant that we were welcome. And thank you, Mr. Corn, for turning on the sprinklers. We stayed, and we will be back.Would you recognize this fella? His hind legs bound, his forelegs chopped off, his fur ripped off, still alive, hours from death. His coat could very well be hanging on one of your racks, Mr. Corn.



Circus. Captive Animal Performers. Forced Labor. Slavery. Animal Cruelty by Patronage.

Don't be afraid. There are no gruesome images in this video. I know that there are some people who have a very shallow threshold for pain. They can't sleep at night; images of butchered or abused animals haunt them. Although I always look at those gut-wrenching images, primarily to acknowledge the suffering of the animals, I don't blame you for protecting your sanity.

Here is a video that is very well-done. It contains scenes of captive animal performances but none of the blood and gore. This is a video you can send to your friends who are still sitting in darkness, those who believe that performing animals are also having a great time, those who insist that the circus is wholesome family entertainment.

I'll let the video presentation speak for itself. And please, do not think that captive animal performances exist only in China. It is a global problem. We have our own home-grown example in the Ringling Bros Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Winter Furs. Red Bank, New Jersey. Demo. FAUN. CAAF. Oct. 16, 2010.

What's wrong with this picture?



Can you think of any situation, any circumstance which would justify such diabolical selfishness, such sickness and inhumanity? Well, neither can we...

This Saturday, October the 16th, FAUN NJ, in solidarity with our friends Caring Activists Against Fur (CAAF), will be making our immutable opposition to the horrific Chinese fur trade known to some unscrupulous cretins in Red Bank, NJ, who shamelessly, gleefully profit from just what you see above - the confinement, torture and extraordinarily brutal extermination of innocent beings - in the name of fickle "luxury" and transient, superfluous "fashion."

Come and add your voice to a burgeoning group of energetic animal activists whose prime objective is to elevate public awareness about the plight of innumerable defenseless foxes, minks, raccoons, dogs and cats, and other mammal victims of the gruesome Chinese fur trade, who are violently and systematically removed from…

North Utah Valley Animal Shelter. University of Utah. Dogs For Sale. Animal Experimentation. Public Trust.

" The barely existent "benefits" of experimenting on these animals doesn't even come close to the resulting moral loss. This is a good example of human depravity and selfishness. It's utterly unacceptable, and no, I will NOT ever take an animal to this kind of shelter; such a place is a fraud." Swampthing (Salt lake Tribune)

Swampthing had reason to be disdainful. It is more than a fraud; it is a betrayal. Recently, PETA uncovered a ghoulish detail about operations at the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter (NUVAS). They have been selling their dogs to the University of Utah who, in turn, uses them for experimentation.

Readers comments on the newspaper naturally veered towards the pros and cons of animal experimentation. But that is not the issue here. The issue is betrayal of mission. Animal shelters provide a haven for homeless and needy animals. That's why it is a shelter. The obligation to protect these animals from harm and sickness is implicit.

It does …

Animal Experimentation. Animals in Labs. Vivisection is Cruel.

The challenge facing us today is to make great strides in Medicine without the cruelty. Animal experimentation is repetitive. Grant proposals are submitted to keep white labcoated professionals employed, and the National Institute of Sciences is ever so willing to bless them with taxpayers money. If animal experimenters insist that some good comes out of animal testing, then they must also be ready to admit that it is hideously cruel. This, they refuse to admit and will never admit.

New Jersey. Paramus. Demonstrations. FAUN. CAAF. Animal Fur Trade. Steven Corn. Macy's

What do you see in the eyes of this poor creature? Objectified, robbed of his spirit, hopelessly broken, the innocent, frightened creature faces his oppressors as if hands which have only shown him hatred, pain and subjugation would suddenly show him love, kindness and mercy. This dog, like millions before him, is a victim of the fur industry. His chances of getting out alive are quite slim. This weekend, those of us who love dogs and feel a sense of kinship with them, as well as with our other mammalian friends enslaved, tortured and killed by the horrible, obscene fur industry, have an opportunity to stand up for them this Columbus Day weekend.

FAUN NJ, in solidarity with our friends Caring Activists Against Fur (CAAF), will be making our immutable opposition to the horrific Chinese fur trade known to those unscrupulous cretins whose livelihood is the confinement, torture and extraordinarily brutal extermination of innocent beings - all in the name of fickle "luxury" and t…
