November 2011 Elections. District 40. New Jersey. Cassandra Lazzarra for the Assembly. A Message from KLIP.

Dear Friends of NJ Wildlife and ALL Animals,

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th. Many registered voters only turn out for 'major' - presidential or gubernatorial elections. This Election Day is MAJOR. You will be able to vote OUT members of the NJ State Senate and Assembly who have sponsored and voted some of the most inhumane animal legislation in history. Who have compromised public safety for the sake of 'sport' by reducing the bow hunt perimeter from 450 feet to 150 from occupied buildings, as in private homes. You have the opportunity to send a clear message to our state legislators, including our governor, that we DEMAND non-lethal solutions to wildlife conflicts in New Jersey. Think of Election Day as the day of CHANGE for NJ animals.

Local elections empower us. Protesting deer and bear hunts goes only so far. If we keep electing the same state legislators who are deeply imbedded in the 'Sportsmen's Caucus', we defeat our own efforts. I urge you to review the following message and link below from the League of Humane Voters of NJ, and feel free to cross post or forward to friends, family, etc. We need to spread the word of voting humanely.

A message for District 40 voters - (Allendale Boro Cedar Grove Twp Franklin Lakes Boro Ho-Ho-Kus Boro Little Falls Twp Midland Park Boro Pequannock Twp Pompton Lakes Boro Ridgewood Vil Riverdale Boro Totowa Boro Waldwick Boro Wayne Twp Woodland Park Boro Wyckoff Twp)

Senator Kevin O'Toole (R) and Assemblyman Scott Rumana (R) are running for re-election. BOTH are members of the 'Sportsmen's Caucus' who actively promote ALL hunting, bow-hunting, trapping, etc. activities statewide. K.L.I.P. strongly endorses Candidate Cassandra Lazzara (D) for District 40 Assembly seat.

K.L.I.P. is NOT a non-profit organization. We are non-partisan and we are proud to support candidates for office who are open to non-lethal alternatives and who support all humane legislation.
PLEASE - VOTE HUMANELY ON TUESDAY, NOV. 8TH
Thank YOU!!!!!
K.L.I.P.

Philippines. Reporting Animal Cruelty. Emergency Numbers. RA 8485.

Because I belong to an group of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines, I can read the numerous discussions between group members and people who, seems to me, just signed up to make an urgent plea for help. There were two this week who begged for assistance concerning two dogs who were tied up under rain and sun with no food nor water. One was described to be on the verge of a heat stroke. The images that filled my mind disturbed me immensely, but I am also encouraged at the same time. There is a growing number of animal welfare advocates in the Philippines and ordinary citizens are beginning to reject animal cruelty, willing to take personal action against it. Just from this website, I can see from the visitor data that many are seeking information on how to report animal cruelty in the Philippines. You can find my previous post on the subject HERE . Keep in mind that your complaint has legal standing via the Philippine Animal Welfare Act which is also known as the RA 8485 .

Antipolo. Philippines. Dog Fighting. Dan Sy Tan Arraigned.

It looks like the noose is getting tighter around the neck of Dan Sy Tan , the alleged but obviously guilty ring leader of a vicious dogfighting ring in the town of Antipolo, Rizal in the Philippines. He was finally arraigned on June 5, 2008 for his crimes, illegal gambling and violating the Philippine Animal Welfare Act of 1998 . Caught redhanded by undercover cops posing as spectators, Dan Tan and his business associates face overwhelming evidence. Included in the ring are three Thai nationals who fled the country last year. They are on videotape. There are gate receipts, eye witnesses, veterinary statements, all point to their guilt. These guys made money from the blood of fighting dogs. What a way to make a living! It's been a full year since the night of the raid, but we'll take every bit of victory we can get. I say " We " because I am a member of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) who worked with the police to capture these poor excuses for human be

Tampa, Florida. Animal Abuse. Five Dogs Neglected. November 2008.

Oh, I'm sorry. Have I introduced you to this nice couple over here? World, meet Wilmer Fernandez (34)and his wife Aixa Rodriguez (32). They live in Tampa, Florida with several children plus FIVE starving and abused dogs. The news reported that three of the dogs were tied up in the backyard with a leash that was too short to give them any room to exercise their muscles while two of the five dogs, boxer and dachshund, hadn't seen a veterinarian at all. One of the five was near death. A dog named Casper , according to the officers, was so sick that they could not tell what breed he was. All dogs were found to be hungry and thirsty. If on November 30, an investigator didn't coincidentally see an emaciated dog in the backyard of 12315 Cambridge Ave ., where Fernandez and Rodriguez live, these dogs would have died a very cruel death. When questioned, the couple argued that they did not have the money to properly care for the dogs. Well, yeah, how could they afford vet care when
