     2014 Vegan Fashion Awards.  Christina Sewell- HOST


    "Cruelty-free fashion" is increasingly becoming a household term, so we hook you up with the fashion of the future: ethical wear that's as chic as it is kind to animals, as showcased in PETA's first-ever Vegan Fashion Awards! 


    http://www.peta.org/  PETA, with more than 3 million members and supporters, is the largest animal rights organization in the world.


    PETA believes that animals have rights and deserve to have their best interests taken into consideration, regardless of whether they are useful to humans. Like you, they are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives.We focus attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: factory farms, laboratories, the clothing trade, and the entertainment industry. We work through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

    Environmental, animal rights & human rights activism ~ We are not free until all life is free ~ Marla Stormwolf-Patty....


    The Alliance for Earth, Life, Liberty & Advocacy (AELLA) is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, listed as a public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to AELLA are tax deductible, under section 170 of the Code. AELLA was founded on January 1st of 2010 by Anthony Damiano (President) and Marla Stormwolf Patty (Vice-President). Marla is also the founder of the Stopcrush.org initiative.


    The main goal of AELLA is to do whatever we can to raise global awareness, altering the way that humanity sees itself and the world around it. There is an extremely pointed need to educate the public in regard to the devastation that animal agriculture/animal exploitation is causing.   No matter how you view humanity, we are currently an extremely destructive force, negatively impacting all life, including ourselves. If the continued dismantling of the global ecosystemic balance does not come to an end and very soon, there will be no turning back for us. There will be nothing left for our children, nor our grandchildren and so on. Our mutual governments have sat idly by, allowing the slaughter of life, the destruction of the environment and the suppression of our rights to continue for far too long. They have also allowed the public to drift in a false sense of security whilst countless forms of life on the planet fall to extinction.

     Mercy for Animals


    The Plight of Farmed Animals


    Over 95% of the cruelty to animals in the United States occurs at the hands of the meat, dairy, and egg industries which confine, mutilate, and slaughter over 9 billion land animals each year.


    Despite the fact that these are the most abused animals in the United States, they actually have the fewest number of advocates. That is why it is so important that we stand up and become a voice for the most defenseless.


    Published on Mar 14, 2015


    A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation into a poultry supplier to Gordon Food Service—the largest private foodservice distributor in North America—has exposed horrific cruelty to animals, including baby birds violently slammed into metal shackles before being painfully shocked with electricity and having their throats cut open while still conscious and able to feel pain.

    GAG ORDER   With "ag gag" bills, Big Ag seeks to stifle reform


    Inside windowless barns, sows chewed the bars of their gestation crates, confined so tightly that they couldn’t even turn around. Brown puddles had formed from a diarrhea outbreak. And piles of dead piglets were being gutted—so that their intestines could be fed to their mothers.


    These images would have remained hidden there in Owensboro, Kentucky, if HSUS undercover investigators hadn’t videotaped the dark reality. It was hard to watch, but critical: The feeding of pigs to pigs violated state law. Other practices seemed to violate human decency.


    “At the end of the day,” an investigator reported, a sow “started making the worst sound I have heard since I started working [here]. I ran to her and she had gotten her nose in between the leverage bar that opens and closes the feed trough and a bar on her cage. … [She] scraped her nose about an inch long [leaving] her mouth bleeding.”


    If proposed “ag gag” laws are passed, moments like these will stay concealed from the American public. Introduced in state legislatures around the country the last few years at the behest of the meat, dairy and egg industry, the bills seek to criminalize whistleblowing by making it illegal to take video or photos on factory farms or to seek employment for the purpose of exposing abuse and food safety problems. They also sometimes require mandatory reporting with impossibly short timelines so that whistleblowers must “out” themselves and no pattern of abuse can be documented.

    "This message is from the team at stopcrush.org. Considering that most animals do not have the capacity to voice their distress in human language, we thought that this message, on their behalf, would be appropriate to send out to citizens all over the world.

    For those who do not realize, animal crush video does indeed, exist. The videos generally feature, but do not limit themselves to, small live animals, such as kittens, puppies, mice and bunnies being slowly tortured in the most horrific ways imaginable.
    They are burned alive, cut with pruning sheers, nailed to the floor, skinned alive, beaten, stabbed and most often, they have their limbs crushed and broken, just to invoke more screams of agony. The majority of these videos share a common theme, the animals are incrementally crushed by scantily clad women in high heels. Those who purchase these videos, view them for sexual gratification. Basically speaking, the animal crush interest is an atypical sexual arousal toward the the horrific torture and distress of another life-form.


    On Thursday, December 9th, 2010, President Obama signed into law, Congressman Elton Gallegly's initiative to ban animal crush videos in the Unites States of America.

A Pet Loss Counselor and also Guest: Megan Mason-Owner/Administrator at TAKE ACTION: Help Ban Animal Gas Chambers & TAKE ACTION 2: Ban Animal Shelters in Canada.. There are still states that allow the Gas Chambers in Animal Shelters to this day.. .NEVADA, UTAH, WYOMING, OKLAHOMA, KANSAS, MISSOURI, MICHIGAN, OHIO, & MINNESOTA are confirmed states that still allow the gas chambers in animal shelters..


    Daniel the beagle survived the gas chamber back in Oct 11, 2011 in Alabama. Daniel the beagle become part of Joe's family Nov 10,2011. His story gained worldwide attention. Daniel the beagle has his own law "Daniel's Law"! Ban gas chambers in animal shelters in his own state- Alabama..


    Most people do not know that the GAS chambers are used in killing animals ... Putting animals in a box stacked on top of each other and closing the lid and turning up the gas . That is not the humane way !!!  EBI (lethal injection) s more cost efficient and more humane. Still we have states that GAS !! First , their eyes start to burn then the air begins to thin and they begin to gasp for air. Their survival instinct kicks in they start biting and scratching trying to get out of that box !!! Their eyes can bleed and their body expels their urine and stool comes out.  The poor little soul is searching for a way to live they want to live


    In some shelters, cats are piled in with dogs, small dogs are mixed in with large dogs, they put live dogs on top of dead ones and they all fight each other for the last breath of air. It is time to draw the line & stop the barbaric practice of gassing animals in all states, if it is wrong in one state it is wrong in all states!

    What Constitutes Animal Cruelty?  Acts of violence or neglect made against animals are considered animal cruelty. Examples include overt abuse, dog fighting, and being neglected or denied the basic necessities of care, such as food, water, shelter, sanitation, grooming and veterinary care.  Neglect is the failure to provide an animal with the most basic of requirements of food, water, shelter and veterinary care.Neglect is often the result of simple ignorance on the animal owner's part and is usually handled by requiring the owner to correct the situation.


    Patrick the Dog Starved -Thrown Away As Garbage


    The 22 story apartment building is equipped with garbage chutes on each floor for tenants. Someone had no more use for this dog. They had starved it to near death, put it in a garbage bag and threw it down the garbage chute. A maintenance worker cleans out the bin every few days and on Wednesday, March 16th, they were cleaning out the contents of the container to go directly into a trash compacter. The bag moved a little and the worker opened it to find a moribund dog inside -- pathetically thin, cold and near death.


    http://njspca.org/  NJ  SPCA  The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was created in 1868 and is the second oldest SPCA in the country. Its agents were established as Law Enforcement Officers in charge of investigating and prosecuting all persons involved in animal abuse and neglect. 


    Our mission today is the same as it’s always been. Through the tireless efforts of our highly trained and professional law enforcement personnel, we are making a difference…one animal at a time.
