PetSmart Charities® Commits $2.1 Million to Keep Domestic Abuse Survivors, At-Risk People and Their Pets Together During Periods of Transition

Domestic Violence shelters that allow women to bring their companion animals are doing a better job of serving their community, since we know that many women will not leave a violence situation if they can't escape with their animals.

If any DV shelter in New Mexico is interested in opening its doors to animals, Positive Links is here to help. We will help you develop your plans and policies, draft your grant requests, work with your local animal shelters and vets to set-up vet care, etc.

Here is just one of the numerous funding opportunities available to DV shelters that want to serve entire families:

Yes, you didn't hear it wrong. Orangutans in Indonesia are being sold to be raped for people's sexuality!
I do want to add that in some states in the US bestiality is legal...
“Bestiality remains legal in the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming, with bills pending in New Hampshire and Ohio, according to the Humane Society of the United States. ... No federal law bans bestiality — not spelled beastiality with an “a” for beast. Nov 30, 2015
Many animal loving organizations have had initiatives in this matter, but not yet has complete success has been achieved. Orangutans, which are unique species of Indonesia and Malaysia, are still being raped and sold with money.
′′ Human ′′ is the most severe insult in animal language.

We absolutely love Juno's Place! One of the many areas they focus on is The Link through their Speak Up campaign.

The shocking number of cruelty cases reported daily in the media is only the tip of the iceberg.
Most cases are never reported, and most animal suffering goes unrecognized and unabated.

You don't have to be a cop or humane agent to help fight animal cruelty, all you need is the courage to call them.

Help spread the word,
If you see Something, Speak UP!!!

Long Island Orchestrating for Nature - LION

Long Island Orchestrating for Nature - LION

A serial-killer in the making duct-taped fireworks to the chest of a Canada Goose at Silver Lake Park in Baldwin, NY. The explosive appeared to have been lit but was soaked in water, presumably when the cowardly perpetrator let go and the bird wisely escaped into the water.

The link between animal abuse and violence toward others has been well-documented by the FBI. Until the person or persons who strapped this firework to this goose are brought to justice, other animals and humans are in danger.

LION and PETA are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges of the person or persons who committed this horrific act.

Please donate toward this reward below. If it remains unclaimed, all funds will be redirected to LION's mission of helping animals on Long Island and beyond. ❤
