USA: A Very Positive Move – Californian law change means pet shops can sell only RESCUED animals.

 

USA-Flagge

WAV Comment:  California once again setting the animal welfare standard in the US.  A very positive move – well done them.  Helping rescued animals and cutting down on specifically bred animals.

Californian law change means pet shops can sell only rescued animals

 

California is set to become the first state in the US to ban the sale of non-rescue animals in pet shops.

The new law, known as AB 485, takes effect on 1 January. Any businesses violating it face a $500 (£400) fine.

The change means cats, dogs and rabbits sold by retailers cannot be sourced from breeders, only from animal shelters.

Animal rights groups have heralded it as a step forward against so-called “kitten factories” and “puppy mills”.

They say the current “high-volume” industries, where pets are bred for profit, can lead to inhumane treatment and long-term emotional and physical health problems in some animals.

The new state-wide law, approved in late 2017, will now require shops to maintain sufficient records of where they sourced each animal, for periodic checks by authorities.

§  The dogs without a home for Christmas

 

It does not, however, affect sales from private breeders or owner-to-owner sales.

Some Californian shop owners have raised concern the law could put them out of business. The measure has also seen resistance from the American Kennel Club, which said it limits pet owners.

According to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) estimates, more than 6.5 million pets enter shelters across the country every year, of which about 1.5 million are put down.

The California assembly member who introduced the legislation, Patrick O’Donnell, has insisted the legislation is not just “a big win” for “four-legged friends”, but for California taxpayers too, as they spend hundreds of millions on sheltering animals across the state.

A couple hoping to adopt a cat from a San Diego shelter on Friday, told NBC News the move was a step forward for the state.

“It takes the emphasis off the profit of animals and puts the emphasis back on caring for and getting these cats and dogs a good home,” prospective owner Mitch Kentdotson said.

AB 485 is the first state-wide law of its kind, although other places have enacted similar regulations on pet sales on a local level.

Earlier this month, a similar ban on third-party puppy and kitten sales was confirmed in England.

Lucy’s law, named after a mistreated cavalier King Charles spaniel, also aims to combat low-welfare animal breeding.

Germany – the country where lobbying rules ..!

 

Germany

Germany is world champion in the industrial killing of pig

 

Deutschland exportweltmeister n

 Germany is export world champion for pig meat

Maybe we should import dog meat in return?

 

Balance of an “animal friendly” country for the year 2018:

– Animal rights activists are criminalized,
– Piglets must be castrated until 2021 without anesthesia.
– Chicks are shredded alive
– Advertising for school milk and meat is done by the state
– School canteens offer pork
– The protection of the wolf is to be lifted in the future
– Animal transports to third countries should be continued
– Animal transports without limit will continue to be approved
– Process of monkey torments is discontinued

And now the tons of export meat in numbers!

“Since the turn of the millennium, exports of meat and dairy products to China have multiplied thirtyfold, with pigs in particular being popular: German traders exported 2.4 million tonnes between January and October 2017, accounting for just under a fifth of slaughtered pigs meanwhile well over half of the exports to China, as data from the EU Commission and the Agricultural Export Report 2017 shows.
The export business has gone so well in recent years that German companies (Tönnies)  started breeding more pigs again. In November 2017, they kept about 27, 5 million animals and about 378,000 more pigs than in May. “

One of Germany’s most important trading partners in pig exports is still China. Exports to the country remained well above the previous year. Just over 40,000 tons of pork wereexported to China in the first five months of the current year, more than in 2017.

Germany is therefore China’s slaughterhouse

The Tönnies Group, Germany, continues to be one of the five largest pig slaughterhouses in the world with 3.04 billion Euro private wealth. Where does come it from?

Thanks to the indifference of the German population to mass industrial killing!

And above all, thanks to the shameless lobbying policy of a corrupt ruling coalition, that is proving to be a leading force in the export of weapons and animal corpses right now.

Despite the many setbacks, despite anger and sadness, we continue to fight.
We lose neither the hope nor the strength to fight.

Because giving up gives this system a simple hand to commit crime and exploitation against the animals.

My best regards, Venus

 

 

 

 

Russia: Petition – Shut Down Cruel ‘Whale Prison’ off Russian Coast.

SIGN: Shut Down Cruel ‘Whale Prison’ off Russian Coast

Posted by Katie Valentine

Whale prison Russia

PETITION TARGET: Sergey Kislyak, Russian Ambassador to the U.S.

Over 100 whales are illegally confined in appalling conditions in the waters off Russia’s Pacific Coast, in what the local media has appropriately nicknamed a “whale prison.”

Kept in cramped, tiny cages, some of the whales have been unscrupulously sold to Chinese aquariums, in direct violation of an international ban on commercial whale hunting that restricts the sale of these intelligent marine mammals.

In early November, a disturbing video appeared online, showing one of these whales being torturously hoisted by a crane in preparation for transport to an unspecified destination.

Between 2013 and 2016, 13 Orcas were reportedly exported to China by unnamed companies, who sold their helpless victims for as much as $6 million each — quite possibly profiting from China’s booming marine park industry.

Even more disturbingly, evidence shows that some of these cruel cages contain infants, which is illegal under all circumstances.

 

Petition Link – https://ladyfreethinker.org/sign-shut-cruel-whale-prison-off-russian-coast/

 

Russia is believed to be the only country in the world that exports wild Orcas, and if nothing is done to stop this, the rate at which they’re being caught and killed will ultimately lead to the species’ demise.

Until recently, the cruel imprisonment of these endangered whales was shrouded in mystery and deceit. It is imperative to race against the clock to ensure the survival of what’s left of these already-threatened species.

Sign this petition urging the Russian Ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, to do everything in his power to shut down the whale prison and halt all whale trading out of Russia’s waters.

Is anyone interested in the sexual habits of quails when they are high on cocaine?

 

kaputte Dollarjpg

 

$2.4 million daydreaming study and a very scientific examination of the sex habits of coked-up quails topped Senator Rand Paul’s annual list of maddening government waste, which this year clocked in at $114 million.

Last week, the Kentucky lawmaker issued his fourth installment of the annual ‘Festivus Waste Report,’ which names and shames some of the US government’s most egregious spending choices.

The waste is humorously documented in this year’s report. Some of the examples include the National Institutes of Health (NIH) spending $2.4 million to study daydreaming, and another NIH study, costing $874,000, which researched the sexual habits of quails that were high on cocaine.

My comment: So far, the Labor Mafia (almost all over the world) has brutally tortured millions of monkeys with our money to allegedly cure Parkinson’s, dementia, or Alzheimer’s. Without success until today.
Now the Labor Mafia in the US is collecting an extra helping of millions to research the sexual behavior of the quail under cocain!!
Is anyone so perverted or stupid to believe that experiments are being made for the good of humanity?

A Message From Venus and Mark (Founders – WAV / SAV).

 

Thank you 3

 

To all our readers, friends, animal lovers

A year is finishing, a new one is coming.

For all of us who see it as a mission to fight for the rights of animals and to give them a better world, there is always a balance sheet exclusively dealing with this mission.

What have we achieved in this direction is often a difficult decision for us personally, how much do we write that is good, how much do we write that is sad.

We all know that we are always faced with a perfectly equipped system of violence, lobbying and exploitation that makes our struggle ever more difficult.

Witnessing the suffering of any animal(s); through video, photos or other media routes is never an easy one for any of us.  It takes its toll; but we have to be strong against an often stronger opposition of abusers, bureaucrats and politicians.

Through our blog sites, ‘Serbian Animals Voice’ https://serbiananimalsvoice.com/  and ‘World Animals Voice’  https://worldanimalsvoice.com/ , we aim to cover as many issues as we can in often, the harshest of blogs – with us, what you see is what you get; cruelty is cruelty and we will never disguise the daily system of abuse and suffering that many animals have to endure the world over.

On the other hand, we know that only if we all fight together against this ‘system’ of abuse, do we then have any chance of winning campaigns.

Looking back, we realize that all the best this year has already been achieved by many using this very same approach, because we participated in solidarity and cooperation in actions, that wanted to abolish the suffering and slavery of animals.

So we have to continue to move forward into next year: active, solidary, united!

Also in the New Year (of 2019) we will do a part in this fight with our two blogs. With information, education, criticism, and facts !

Stay true to us, we all remain faithful to the animals, and faithful to you, our dear campaigner friends !

What one alone does not achieve, many unite to create victories together.  Be part of our team uniting in achieving victories !.

In this Sense and with this hope, we wish you all a healthy and happy new year of fighting for the voiceless in 2019.

Best wishes – Venus and Mark.
