About: Pets of the Homeless

About: Pets of the Homeless

Pets of the Homeless, legal name Feeding Pets of the Homeless, is located in Nevada.  Helping abused animals is not the only way to help animals. They are a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to the homeless across the United States and Canada. Of the approximate 3.5 million Americans that are homeless, between 5% to 24% have dogs and/or cats.

The homeless not only need to find ways to help themselves. If they have pets that they love, they want to take care of them too. Pets of the Homeless utilize collection sites that accept pet food donations. They deliver it to distributing organizations (food banks, homeless shelter and/or soups kitchens) which have agreed to distribute the pet food to the homeless and poor.

Pets of the Homeless sponsor veterinarians that go to where the homeless congregate and provide veterinary care such as vaccines, spay/neuter and other needed treatments at Wellness Clinics.  They assist homeless shelters that will allow pets sanctuary with their owners by shipping crates so that the homeless can come in out of the cold and heat.

Pets of the Homeless addresses many initiatives: recruiting collection sites and distributing organizations as well as awarding grants, answering hundreds of requests for information on how to start a pet food pantry, how to volunteer, how to help a homeless person on the street, how to donate if there isn’t a collection site in the area, where to take pet food, and where to get pet food and veterinary care.  They work with social workers, school children, Scouts, churches and companies who want to help. They talk with homeless everyday about their pets.

By helping the loved pets of the homeless, you are also helping the homeless.

“Feeding Pets of the Homeless believes in the healing power of companion pets and of the human/animal bond which is very important in the lives of many homeless.  They find solace, protection and companionship through their pets.  They care for their pets on limited resources so they themselves have less.  Our task, nationwide, is to feed and provide basic emergency veterinary care to their pets and thus relieve the anguish and anxiety of the homeless who cannot provide for their pets.”

Visit their website to find out  more about their initiatives such as:

  • Promoting to veterinarians and pet related businesses the importance of joining the organization as a collection site
  • Campaigning to food distributing organizations the importance of distributing pet food to the less fortunate
  • Speaking out on the issue of pets of homeless and disadvantaged
  • Providing funding to licensed veterinarians and other nonprofit organizations that meet our objective to administer veterinary care to pets of the homeless
  • Providing funding for crates to nonprofit homeless shelters that will allow pets sanctuary with their owners

VETPAW is Helping Elephants and Rhinos Survive

VETPAW is Helping Elephants and Rhinos Survive

Do you love elephants and rhinos and want to help save them? Here is a great and easy way to help. Meet the VETPAW organization.

 

VETPAW

An awesome group of Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient veterans and their team are helping abused animals. Witnessing  elephant and rhino species extinction, they came to the rescue. Veterans Empowered to Protect African Wildlife (VETPAW) was founded by Ryan Tate, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. After bravely serving from 2003-2007 in the most dangerous areas during the Iraq War, he was recognized as Marine of the Year in 2005.

Ryan Tate wanted to apply his skills towards his passion for wildlife conservation, to help save elephants and rhinos and to help stop poaching in Africa.

Losing one species has an impact on all the other species in an ecosystem. If it’s not a balanced ecosystem, it all fails.” — Ryan Tate exclaims.

If poaching doesn’t stop, the extinction of elephants will happen within 20 years.  Rhinos are also poached. Some species are already extinct.

There’s a really solid chance that if you educate a poacher in the right manner and make that big of an impact on him, he’s not going to do it again when he gets out of jail.” – Ryan Tate

Donations to VETPAW helps trainers and rangers with the supplies they need, for fuel, helicopter time, firearms, food, and new technology for counter-poaching methods. Some goes to community engagement.

Some of the VETPAW missions include

Operation Rhino Shield – securing a long term home with the help of Army, Marine and Navy veterans and private reserves.

Operation Tanzania – investigations resulted in arrest of 50 suspected poachers, with the help of U.S. Special Forces, Army and Air Force, VETPAW-trained local rangers, and Tansazian Wlidlife Anit-Crimes Task Force.

Meet some of the VETPAW heroes:

 

We thank VETPAW for #HelpingAbusedAnimals and in turn, the world. Elephants and rhinos are family-oriented beings. They feel pain and loss. They are playful in loving situations. Just like humans. #BeKindToElephants, #BeKindToRhinos, #BeKindToAnimals.

Design Industry Statistics1

  • 80% of the world’s leather comes from China. China has no regulations on leather, so dogs and cats are often used for leather hides.

    • 12 geese for 1 down pillow
    • 8 cows for 1 sofa
    • 150 chinchillas for 1 full-length coat,

NY Vegetarian Food Festival Cruelty-free Helping Abused Animals

NY Vegetarian Food Festival Cruelty-free Helping Abused Animals

NY Vegetarian Food Festival

The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival was held on Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21, 2017 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, from 11AM to 6 PM.

All these companies are helping abused animals with their products and rescue support.

It is wonderful to see more vegan options in restaurants and supermarkets. Just 1 year ago, it was difficult to find vegan milk. Now, half the milk isles are with multiple options of vegan milk. Much more funding, with venture capital is flooding the research market. A great example is PlantBased Solutions. Their goal is to “support the world with innovative plant-based products. Their focus includes food, packaging, health, beauty and fashion”. Other companies such as Ripple Foods that just came out with pea-protein milk, offers a great protein-based milk product that is also low in sugar. Many clothing companies are focusing their attention to creating clothing that is cruelty-free. They use no animals, nor exploit any animals in their creation of warm clothing. Great examples are Wully Outerwear and Will’s Vegan Shoes & Accessories Co., two of the exhibitors at the NYC Vegetarian Festival. Be Brilliant Bags offers cruelty-free hand bags. Companies offering cruelty-free cosmetics such as Derma-E and cleaning products such as Better Life are growing too.

About White Coat Waste Project Helping Abused Animals

About White Coat Waste Project Helping Abused Animals

white coat waste project

Here is a great way to save taxpayer dollars. And even better, a way to save animals.

The government is supposed to protect all our country, yet they spend about $12-$15 billion tax dollars every year for wasteful experiments on loving animals … cats, dogs, monkeys and other animals. These experiments are brutally cruel. They are useless. Animal lovers and taxpayers aren’t aware of all of this and haven’t approved these experiments.

The White Coat Waste Project, under the leadership of its president Anthony Bellotti, is fighting back. The White Coat Waste Project is the recipient of six “Congressional Waste Warrior” awards. They are helping abused animals by

  • investigating and analyzing these government experiments, the abuse, and the cost,
  • educating the public about these abuses,
  • building a coalition to resolve the issues.

Sample abuses (as per http://www.whitecoatwaste.org/the-facts/):

  • Stuffing hamsters with pizza: $?
  • shrimp fight club: $707,000
  • shrimps running on treadmills: $? see reference: Shrimp running on treadmills
  • Lab Mouse Gender Inequalities $10 million
  • Doped Up Rats: $185,625
  • Stuttering Mice: almost $2 million
  • Vomiting Dogs: $?
  • Monkeys on a treadmill: almost $3 million
  • Green Tea Force-feeding: $?
  • Pig patients: $1.1 million

Currently, the USDA wiped out animal welfare reports and abuse data from its website. Many have protested this action and several lawsuits are being pursued to get this data back online.

For the first time, there will be an audit of the government’s animal labs, thanks to the bi-partisan support, led by Representatives Ken Calvert (R-CA) and Dina Titus (D-NV). See http://www.FactAct.org

Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Reps. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Tom Marino (R-Pa.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) and Dina Titus (D-Nev.) were honored by the White Coat Waste Project for their efforts in these initiatives.

Animal lovers are

  • Urged to sign a petition at http://www.whitecoatwaste.org/take-action/
  • Contact Congress
  • For more information and/or to donate, visit The White Coat Waste Project website at http://www.whitecoatwaste.org
  • Ask your senators and representatives support the bipartisan bill to increase transparency about animal experimentation with the FACT Act at http://www.factact.org
