With Easter coming soon, pet stores are stocking up on bunnies to sale. The truth is over 90% of bunnies bought for Easter presents will not see their first birthday. Many of these bunnies are bought on impulse, without knowing all the responsibility a rabbit requires. Not too long after Easter, many of these bunnies are neglected or taken to local shelters once the novelty wears off. Before buying that cute, fluffy bunny in the window of the pet store, think about it. Do you have the time and patience to devote to a rabbit? And most important, rabbits and young children are usually not a good combination! If your family’s set on getting a rabbit, start by giving a chocolate bunny or a stuffed toy for Easter and, if your young children are really serious about it then grab a book on rabbit care. If they’re still begging you for a bun after the holiday has passed, go to your local shelter or rescue group and find out how to adopt the rabbit. You can also help spread the word that rabbits are not disposable pets. Started in 2002 by the Columbus House Rabbit Society, the campaign aims to […]
As sales of dairy products in the U.S. continue to plummet, PETA is hoping to keep the nasty white stuff off consumers’ shopping lists by re-releasing its ads that parody the “Got Milk?” campaign, with phrases such as “Got Prostate Cancer?,” “Got Veal?,” “Got Zits?,” and “Got Sick Kids?” that highlight the health risks and cruelty to animals associated with the dairy industry. All the ads are available here on PETA’s blog. “It’s no surprise that sales of dairy products are at an all-time low, given the adverse health effects of a product full of calories and cholesterol that is meant to grow hefty baby cows,” says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. “If PETA’s ads get people thinking about how cows live in mud and muck-filled pens and have their calves taken away from them, that’s terrific.” Is this something that you might be interested in? Please let me know if there’s anything else that you need.
First of all we believe hunting is simply not needed anymore. The food chain for humans has evolved past that now. We can get more healthy and better tasting food without it being from killing an animal. In fact more people die, get fat, and sick, from bad animal meat then any protein based vegetarian and synthetic mix. Both protein based meals synthetic or veggie based have better protein, less fat, less cholesterol, more iron, more minerals, and more vitamins. In fact eating meat (mostly red) is in the top ten things responsible for diseases and obesity( something the US claims #1 in the world for). So if you want to be weak, fat, and die soon have a field day and munch down. We just ask that you have a little respect for your hunt.

A week ago, Loews Hotels at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, sparked the outrage of cat lovers everywhere by announcing (more like burying a comment in a two-month-old Facebook post) that they had decided to trap and remove their managed feral cat colonies. The day the news broke, my fellow Catster writer, Dorian Wagner, formed a Facebook page called Save Loews Cats, a central location for updates to the situation and for information about how people could take action to inspire Loews to reverse their decision. That afternoon, Alley Cat Allies issued a press release condemning Loews’ decision as hypocritical and heartless. “Loews markets itself as a ‘pet-friendly’ company, but the truth is more sinister,” said Becky Robinson, president and co-founder of Alley Cat Allies. “Loews refused to consider humane options for the cats despite our and others’ repeated invitations to work with the company to address their concerns.” Some good news emerged from Orange County Animal Services on March 30. The Save Loews Cats crowd contacted the organization through its Facebook page, with a request for information and an offer to help take care of any feral felines brought to the shelter by Critter Control, the wildlife pest removal […]
