Ban Hunting & Protect Animals

Whether it is for sport, trophy, or entertainment, there is no reason to kill animals. None! Killing innocent animals for these inappropriate and vain reasons has been an accepted activity throughout most of the world for far too long. It is time that they stop, and we treat animals with the same respect and honor as humans. Stop hunting!

Ban Exotic Cats for Entertainment

Using exotic animals for entertainment is considered a crime in God’s eyes. Forcing them to perform dances and other tricks is cruel, and it causes them distress because they are forced to do things that are unnatural and uncomfortable for them. When tamers and trainers “discipline” them, they are, in essence, punishing and hurting these animals for behaving in their own natural, authentic state and being exactly who they are.

 

Forcing animals to perform for the entertainment of humans—and for a fee, no less– is barbaric because the industry subjects’ animals to cruelty that is generally kept secret from the public. Their pain and suffering continue as they are forced to live confined in small cages where they are deprived of running and moving as they should— as animals. This constant confinement, along with ongoing abuse from trainers, causes severe depression, anger, and hopelessness for them. Don’t support the animal entertainment industry. Free the animals!

Ban Horse Racing

Horse Racing is cruel and highly abusive to horses! It must be stopped. Horses are suffering and need us to intervene and resuce them from a painful life.  Horses are forced to run until they are exhausted and are then forced to keep running- by being continually whipped, even to the point of bleeding. They are usually killed after having sustained an injury which prohibits them from running any longer. If deemed unable to race, they are just disposed of and at a young age. They are given performance-enhancing drugs that cause them to run, beyond their natural energy levels - making them run until they are sick and exhausted. The industry is keeping this from you. People watch this abuse as a form of “entertainment,” and they gamble off the pain and suffering of horses. This has to stop now! Please work to Ban Horse Racing and save Our beautiful horses from a life of torture.

Ban the Fur Industry

Many animals, especially rabbits and mink, are killed inhumanely in the fur industry. What many people consider fashionable and luxurious comes at a great cost- the cost of an innocent, beautiful animal. There is no reason to kill animals for vanity, and most definitely not any reason related to comfort or warmth when we have so many other options available today. Please reconsider what you support and stop the fur industry now. Wearing fur IS supporting the killing of animals. Please don’t hurt the animals by wearing fur. Please help them – by Banning the Fur Industry!
