France and Spain: the massacre of the turtle pigeons is over!


frankreich flaggepg




Is the turtle pigeon hunt over soon?

Every year in France and Spain, hunters legally shoot between 1.4 and 2.2 million lovebirdsthat’s about a quarter of the stock in the entire European Union! At the same time, the species dies out faster than protective measures can take effect.


The EU has now initiated a lawsuit against both countries,  because they still release the Turtle Dove almost unlimitedly for launch.

The “Committee Against Bird Slaughter” had just published a scientific study of the current hunting statistics this spring, including fresh information on the unbelievable amount of turtle hunting.

The governments in Madrid and Paris now have the opportunity to explain themselves.

If they do not do so, they will be taken to the European Court of Justice. Chances are better than ever!

My comment: Turtle doves are a symbol of love and happiness, and some people believe that they can cure disease.
That is why two to three million birds are killed every year in the EU alone?
The organization BirdLife International, estimates that up to 600,000 lovebirds in the Mediterranean are shot down each year.

You have to be a pathetic, underdeveloped monster to enjoy the murder of these peaceful, lovely birds.
But with this massacre it seems to be over.
At least the French and Spanish psychopaths will soon have to look for another fun in the future.

Close to death, brain injured but so brave: Sona’s recovery

Laying on the road this poor little collapsed darling was fading away before our eyes. For several days she didn’t regain consciousness after suffering a head injury. We gave her IV fluids until she slowly began to eat on her own, but the reason we feel she stayed alive is because she was so motivated by love. Watch beautiful Sona who achieved the ability to eat again, walk again, run again (though wobbly), and in the process, bloomed with love.  

Please donate for brave little bundles.


Adorable dog recovers from badly wounded ear.

This gorgeous boy’s ear was destroyed by maggots. Neighbors had tied him to make sure he didn’t wander away before we arrived, but when we met this sweetheart we realized he was so loving and friendly he would never have resisted being carried, if it meant he’d squeeze in some more snuggles. He needed extensive wound treatments, daily flushing and bandaging and a course of antibiotics, but he was cheerful from the first moment until his healing was complete after a month. 

Please donate. When happy animals are very hurt helping feels so good


Sophia was badly burned but so brave 

Sophia’s burn was almost a foot long. We don’t know what caused it but this beautiful girl was in excruciating pain. It took 2 months of daily wound dressings to heal and during that time, we fell in love with her. Her patience and understanding were inspirational; she was one of those special “people” who are so peaceful they can make wherever they are seem like home. Meet the gracious Sophia today. 

Please donate today for street animal healing


Shylo’s skin was like cracked stone. Amazing recovery of a shy softie!

It’s almost impossible to spot her at first but you’ll soon see that this gravelly mound is a dog suffering in the desperate grip of mange. The mange parasites have caused a condition called crusting, and the pain and itching is part of the most extreme suffering imaginable. We named this shy, frightened girl Shylo, and when you see her transformation you seriously won’t recognize her as the same dog. But that’s what healing can look like: pure beauty. 

Please donate to heal the helpless.


We thank you deeply for all you do, are, and inspire for animals.

Who decides on animal rights?



Animal tormentors would understand very well what animals suffer from their sadism if they experience the same thing. But also animal abusers have rights that protect and allow them to use violence and exploitation on other non-human animals.

Animals have no rights. Nowhere in the world.

They are valued as things, and what we define today as animal rights is nothing but a weak legal system that accepts animals not as persons but only as subordinate beings, and therefore this legal system recognizes to the animals only those rights which serve and favor humans!

For this reason alone, we are far from being a civilized and progressive society.

Best regards, Venus
