Dogs are again helpless victims of unbelievable cruelty -even their death is atrocious. WSPA is campaigning to stop the South Korean dog meat industryThis is the least upsetting photo, things get much worse after this. Please help WSPA's campaign
The Govt of the Philippines has now outlawed the trade but killers still profit illegally.
WSPA is also trying to protect bears and cubs from the poachers who keep the bear alive to hack paws off one by one for the meat trade. The only way to ensure their safety is to buy land and guard the bears placed there as they have with the many performing bears. This costs both courage and money to rescue the bears from misue.

WSPA needs £1.20 to save a dog's life. In Bali, the fear of rabies has led the government to use a horrendous means of killing all dogs. WSPA showed there is no need by injecting dogs and stopping the risk of catching the disease. The study proved effective and now the government has agreed WSPA xan inject all dogs over the next few months .. else they return to the use of strychnine poisoning. WSPA now needs many £1.20 injections. This is all it takes to keep a dog from danger visit

The PDSA is one of the many charities which not only benefits from Gift Aid (if you are a tax payer) on your cash donations but also goods donated to their chairty shops can also be
Gift Aid-ed. They can also convert used postage stamps to funds - any kind however ordinary.
This means if you take a bag of clothing/ CDs etc to the shop, once you have registerd with them, they can then claim tax on the profit they make from your unwanted items. You will receive letters updating you on the amount you have helped them to raise. As with cash donations, they can claim 28p on every £1 you give. So if they sell an item you donated for £1 they actually benefit by £1.28. Once you have registered and have a card with your unique number on, you just need to show the number every time that you donate something in order forthe PDSA to benefit, at no cost to you.

The UK may follow the Welsh banning of safety collars for cats.
Rather than they roam onto roads, becoming one of the 400 killed daily, for those who don't keep their cats sagfely indoors, an electronic collar beeps then offers a mild tingle if your cat attempts to leave its designated area.
This really is a case of tough love - it'n not perfect but it's better than a horroble death.http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/pets
The World Society for the Protection of Animals WSPA and the International Fund for Animal Welfare IFAW both work throughout the world to help all kinds of animals. They work with people to change from cruel livelyhoods (eg dancing bears) to alternative incomes, they teach owners of livestock how to care for their working animals, educate schoolchildren and help governments to introduce legislation that will benefit animals. They work with local agencies to deliver emergency aid in cases of disaster both overseas and recently in the UK when, with the RSPCA they rescued pets in areas of flooding.

WSPA is also appealing for us to make a very basic craft project to alleviate the suffering of horses and donkeys in Pakistan:
Simply cut a soft fur fabric rectangle 11"x 4" (28cm x 10cm)
sew (not glue) velcro on both sides to enable to enable the fabric to be wraped around the horse's
noseband and fastened on.
This helps protect working horses from injuries and sores caused by their nosebands.
Please send directly to:WSPA Noseband Protectors,89 Albert Embankment, London SE1 7TP
Reflectorlights and strips which you may have to spare would be put to good use by an overseas charity trying to help animals pulling carts. The donkeys etc cannot be seen in the dark andsuffer accidents. If you can donate any of the reflective items needed please contact:Sue Ashton 01253 731572
British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection BUAV aims to end vivisection of animals. Whilst the general public is aware that animal testing is unnecessary for cosmetics, there is a woeful ignorance about alternatives to animal use in medical research. The Fund to Replace Animals in Medical Experiments FRAME is also working to end this unnecessary suffering. By doing so medical progress will be made when products are not tested on animals very different from humans to judge how they will benefit us. Animal lovers need to be aware that many medical charities use your donation to fund vivisection. Be aware of this possibility with research charities. This is not true of them all. Some such as MacMillain do not harm animals, Breast Cancer Care does not, whilst Imperial Cancer, Cancer Research and Breakthrough all do.
One alternative method of furthering medical advancement is by donating human tissue for research. The Leeds Tissue Bank, based at the Teaching Hospital, Leeds can utilise human cells which are not used in organ transplantation. For details how to donate the un-needed tissue after your death Tel: 07747 006454 email@example.com or 07747 006495 firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
