R.I.P. Sundance-You Were Just a Baby

This baby is only 8 weeks old Siberian Husky. He was attacked by other dogs mauled and then the owner dumped him at shelter with a broken jaw and throat almost torn out.
Alley's Rescue Siberian Angel took in a little guy and raised enough money for surgery, however, this baby didn't survive. He passed during the surgery last night.

R.I.P. Precious Little Angel. I am sorry you didn't get a chance for better life and that last minutes on this planet were so painful to you.

R.I.P. Vucko from Sarajevo, Bosnia


My heart broke into million little peaces when I saw this picture on the Facebook. The pain he went thorough is unimaginable. Few young and drunk minors did this by sticking a dynamite or fire crackers into his mouth and taping it.
Many people are outraged at what happened to this German Sheppard. Facebook photo album OPROSTI NAM VUCKO (FORGIVE US VUCKO) shows more photos of this horrible act. Posts under that just prove how outraged people are to see this happen to the innocent creature.
There is also a video of veterinarian examining the dog:

Vucko is not with us anymore. Its up to people to make sure he didn't suffer in vain.

Rest in Peace Vucko.

He Didn't Know Crocodiles Are Not Suposed to Be Petted

     A German tourist wanted to pet crocodile while on vacation in South Africa, crocodile moved towards him to attack but luckily didn't hurt the tourist. He, then, complained that there should be a sign stating the fact that crocodiles should not be petted. This case ended up in court, however, judge dismissed it right away saying that its well known fact that crocodiles should not be petted.

Former TUI (German international tourist organization) president Karl Born said for Speigel that many tourists spend too much time complaining about things while on vacatio in order to get reimbursed. This, he thinks was the worst complian he hard.

Are these people for real?

Nobody Wants to Adopt Kitler

Kitler is a six week old adorable kitten found alone and near death by the road in Kempston, Bedfordshire. Currently this girl resides in Wood Green Animal Shelter and remains unwanted seemingly because of little black fur patch under her nose that resembles Hitler mustache.

Shelter stuff believe that her appearance is what turns potential adopters away.

“Kitler is an adorable little girl who will make a wonderful addition to the right family,” spokeswoman Tara Dundon told The Telegraph. “She is really playful and a typical sweet kitten. We rehome five and a half thousand animals every year but we cannot find a loving owner for Kitler. We think her unusual markings are putting people off.”



Name Kitler was drown from Kitten and Hitler. It is not poor kitties fault. What do you think? Would you adopt her?

Kitler -Isn't she adorable?
Update: After receiving overwhelming number of calls and emails Kitler is now adopted-his new name is Luminus.

Hope - God Bless Her Beautiful Soul

Hope was tied to the tree with electrical cord by Dionte Davis and left alone in the woods to die alone. The cord cut her throat open. She survived but only for 10 days. She waged tail all the time while at vet's office even in this painful condition, even after all this wrongdoing upon her.  It is hard to loose someone who fought so hard for her life. God bless her beautiful soul. Petition (see on the right side) to bring this teen to justice has amazing response.

Savana Frame, petition organizer urges people to keep sharing and signing:
"keep sharing and signing- when this mans court hearing comes, i am going to print entire petition and comments off and send to court house. i may actually go there myself!-- this is an amazing response for a little dog that didn't deserve what she got"



Petition Says:
POOR HOPE, SHE FOUGHT SO HARD TO LIVE AFTER BEING TIED UP AROUND THE NECK WITH ELECTRICAL WIRE-- AND LEFT THERE BY THIS TEENAGER-- TO DIE- SEVERED TRACHEA- SHE SURVIVED- WE BECAME AWARE- AND NOW SHE HAS DIED. DIONTE DAVIS, HE MUST SERVE HIS PRISON TIME- WHO WILL BE NEXT IF HE'S NOT REFORMED? MY CHILD?!- I DON'T THINK SO!
One of the petitioners posted this comment:
Mathew Davis:
I can’t even look at this picture, it horrifies and disgusts me and fills me with such a terrible sadness.
If people don’t speak or act out against such atrocities they will continue to occur in the shadows.
Please, take a stand against inhumanity, respect all your fellow creatures as you would your dearest sibling and insist (fucking INSIST!) that others do it too.
Nothing deserves to be treated like this. Nothing. And this behaviour should not ever, I repeat NOT EVER, ever, ever, ever be tolerated.
Being silent makes you an enabler, being active makes you a warrior.

I could not agree more!

Please help by signing and spreading Hope's story.

L'Oreal's Animal Testing Practice is L'Cruel: Are You Really Worth It?

   One of my Facebook friends posted on her page blog about L'Oreal's cruel animal testing practice. (Read The Blog Here). Photo of a bunny with needle in its head immediately got my attention. Reading comments at the post made me think. How many people are aware that they support or increase this cruel practice when they buy products such as L'Oreal.
   One of the comments to the post from lady who is vegan, which obviously means she cares about animal's welfare said that she uses some of L'Oreal products but will stop immediately now that she learned about animal testing because they (the animals) are worth it .
From Wake Up and Care Diem
    According to same blog, it is estimated that about 2.5 million animals were tested last year. Rabbits are favorite subjects because they can't squirt liquids out of their eyes without using paws.
Bunnies are secured while substances are dropped in their eyes, they don't have tear duct and therefore can't release sting and pain.
   Other animals are shaved and scraped until their skin is sensitive and then substances are applied to the skin while group of researchers make sure animal can't itch or remove substance.
   We all know how much it hearts when we squirt something in our eyes or when our skin is irritated. Imaging how much pain these poor creatures must go thorough for hours and days and than add constant fear and stress to that.
   Other animals being tested on are dogs and cats, mostly from the shelter where they were scheduled to be put down. After arriving to the lab I am sure they wish they were put down and out of their misery.

L'Oreal has marketing slogan "Because you are worth it", but are you really? Do you really think that your long lashes are worth inflicting pain on other creatures when you can get them without causing suffering to animal?. We are contracted differently from rabbits, cats and dogs so after all the animal testing products still need to be tested on humans. So, all that testing and suffering gave a little of results, a little bit of understanding how substance works but you still need to know how it works on humans.

Unfortunately, in United States animal testing is still allowed, I am hoping that in near future it will be banned. United Kingdom banned cosmetic ingredient testing and I hope it will happen in United States.
L'Oreal will supposedly go cruelty free in 2013, according to Livin Cruelty Free. Until then you can use alternative cosmetic products such as Avon, Bath  and Body Works, Tressemme etc. Peta is good source of cruelty free products and for ways to help end animal testing and cruelty. See full Peta's list of cruelty free cometisc.
