    Voices Carry for Animals # 46

    in Current Events

    Hosted By Debbie Dahmer


    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.

    "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.

We are a long-term senior care facility for dogs and cats, along with adoptions.

    Guest will be : Mikael Nielsen  Serves as national volunteer coordinator for Mercy For Animals, recruiting and training activists throughout the United States.


     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.

    Are you afraid of animals, and how do animals see you if you are?

    in Pets

    So many people are afraid of animals. Not just snakes and spiders and mice, but also dogs and horses. And even people that live with animals are sometimes afraid. Horse owners that are afraid to ride their horse, dog owners afraid and intimidated by their own dog. 


    How do the animals see us when we are intimidated by them? And can we change the situation? Can it be turned around? Find out Charlie’s perspective on this issue. And find out how you might be able to overcome your fears!

    About Pet Therapy


    A hand reaches out, a wagging tail approaches, and an elderly face breaks into a smile. It's a scene that's increasingly common in the Helena Valley, thanks to volunteers from the Helena Chapter of Intermountain Therapy Animals. Activity directors and health care professionals report that visiting pets reach nursing home residents, hospital patients, retirement home residents and adult day care participants in ways that other therapeutic activities can't.


    The contact may be brief, but it brightens the entire day or week, especially for those who have had pets in the past. In some cases, an animal's visit is transforming. Shy, withdrawn, or depressed people find themselves in animated conversation, angry people relax, and those with memory lapses share detailed recollections of pets they lived with years before. Visiting pets have reached autistic children, stroke victims, Alzheimer's patients, and other "unreachables." Even when nothing dramatic happens, pet visits are important changes of pace for facility residents, bringing excitement, affection, comfort, physical contact and joy.


    In addition, to providing companionship (called Animal Assisted Activity), visiting pets sometimes participate in a facility's therapy program. In Animal Assisted Therapy, a dog might stand while a patient brushes him order to exercise specific arm muscles, or a cat might visit a depressed patient to encourage conversation, or someone in speech therapy might give commands to a dog that does tricks or retrieves objects. Anyone who loves animals is likely to work harder and feel more motivated when one is part of the therapy team.
