Stop the dolphin slaughter in Taiji and bring an end to whale and dolphin captivity
The slaughter of 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales occurs in Japan each year. Starting on September 1st and usually continuing through March of the next year, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into a shallow bays and mercilessly stab and drown them to death.
This annual slaughter of dolphins was virtually unknown until 2003 when Sea Shepherd globally released covertly-obtained film and photographs of the now infamous bloody “Cove” in a village called Taiji. Starting in 2010 and continuing to this day, Sea Shepherd has a ongoing presence of volunteers standing watch on site at the Cove. They are The Cove Guardians. sign petition

Resolution Encouraging State Bans on Gas Chamber Euthanasia in Shelters
It is not necessary to view the video above, it is extremely sad to watch. Please sign the petition. Being complacent by doing nothing is allowing this inhumane treatment to continue.
Shelters are supposed to be places that provide a haven for unwanted animals and a humane death when homes cannot be found for them. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Some states still allow shelters to use gas chambers, and these can hardly be called humane. sign petition
