    Peggy Cunniff -Executive Director   National Anti-Vivisection Society   


    Wednesday, June 10, 2015 is the 25th anniversary of the March for the Animals in Washington, DC—the largest animal rights event in our nation’s history. NAVS was one of more than 40 animal advocacy organizations taking part in this event—and Peggy Cunniff presented the first-ever nationally endorsed “Declaration of the Rights of Animals” to Congressman Tom Lantos on the steps of Capitol Hill. This document acknowledged that all animals were entitled “to live free from human exploitation.”


    What is Vivisection?  Vivisection is the practice of cutting into or using invasive techniques on live animals or dissecting the bodies of animals. Anti-vivisectionists are people who oppose these practices for ethical and scientific reasons.


    http://www.navs.org/   Our Mission The National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) is dedicated to ending the exploitation of animals used in science. 


    NAVS promotes greater compassion, respect and justice for animals through educational and advocacy programs based on respected ethical, scientific, and legal theory. Supported by extensive documentation of the cruelty and waste of vivisection, NAVS works to increase public awareness about animal experimentation, to promote positive solutions that advance humane science, to support the development of alternatives to the use of animals, and in cooperation with like-minded individuals and groups, to effect changes which help to end the unnecessary suffering of animals.

    http://www.pawspetranch.org/  Paws Pet Ranch Website. A SANCTUARY FOR SENIOR, ABANDONED, ABUSED AND NEGLECTED ANIMALS. At Paws Rescue Ranch we are “on call” for dogs and cats that are lost, surrendered or abandoned by their owners or are running out of time at the county shelters. After spaying and neutering and medical checkups, we find them loving new families or give them a forever home at the cage-free ranch for the rest of their lives. Paws Rescue Ranch began with the commitment that no pets should be euthanized because of old age or lack of space at a shelter. Paws Rescue Ranch is different than most rescues. We are a long-term senior care facility for dogs and cats, along with adoptions.

     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.
