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/):
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.

Mr. Gene Baur and Mr. Gene Stone have written an amazing book that addresses the farm business, farm animals and how to eat mindfully. Throughout his life, Mr. Baur has taken upon himself the task of exposing the horrific abuses occurring in farms. These factory farms are a nightmare to the animals and to people who love animals. Many people don’t realize how abusive the farms are to animals. And many don’t realize how dairy products also impose further animal abuse.
Living the Farm Sanctuary Lifeis a non-judgmental book, that calmly discusses the vegan approach, in baby steps. The book offers many delicious vegan recipes from breakfast meals to desserts, along with a portfolio of plant-based pantry staples to make it easier for people who are pursuing the vegan path.
Readers will learn how the vegan diet not only helps the animals, but how it is a healthier life style for people and for the environment.
Living the Farm Sanctuary Life gives us a glimpse into the beautiful animals that have been rescued at the Farm Sanctuary, from cows to pigs and others… all cute, huggable, lovable animals that deserve to live out their full lives with love.
Mr. Baur is the president and co-founder of Farm Sanctuary and has been hailed, rightly so, as “the conscience of the food movement” by Time Magazine. Mr. Stone has written many books on animal rights and plant-based nutrition. His New York Times bestseller Forks Over Kniveshas changed many people’s diets to veganism.
I deeply thank Mr. Baur and Mr. Stone for all their awesome efforts and achievements in helping abused animals.
Help save the elephants and rhinos from poaching. They are brutally tortured and killed for their IVORY!!! Their ivory is brutally removed from them to be used for TRINKETS !!!!! How horribly inhumane. Help by marching, signing petitions, sharing the information, donations to organizations…. Many ways to help. And definitely don’t buy trinkets. Helping abused animals is critical to them and our world. We are losing so many: 1 rhino is killed every 9 hours. 1 elephant is killed every 15 minutes. They don’t have much time left.

Carriers should be large enough for the animal to stand comfortably, turn around and lie down, as it may be home for hours at a time while you seek shelter. Include extra blankets or towels for bedding and warmth.

– Current photos and descriptions of your animals to help others identify them in case you become separated and to prove that they are yours.
