Tell Michael Vick Please Don’t Get Another Dog!!

care2 petitionsite actionAlert

Michael Vick, professional footballer player and convicted dog fighting ring operator, recently said he’d like to own another dog and that it would be a "big step" in his rehabilitation process.

Tell Michael Vick: please don’t own another dog! »
In 2007, more than 50 dogs were rescued from Vick’s farm and reports of unspeakable abuse like electrocuting dogs in his pool surfaced.

Michael Vick should continue his rehabilitation and his role as animal advocate, but not personally own another dog. »

Now, Vick is speaking out against dog fighting and is a reformed animal advocate. But even if Vick has learned compassion for animals, no dog should be used to test his recovery.

A dog shouldn’t be adopted to someone with a history of animals abuse, just like a child shouldn’t be adopted to someone with a history of child abuse. Send a polite message to Michael Vick: applaud his new role as an animal advocate, but tell him to please not get another dog. »

Thanks for taking action!

Support the Happy Act

care2 petitionsite actionAlert

In these trying economic times, it’s often hard to care for beloved pets. And it’s devastating to give up a pet because of financial hardship, but the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years ("HAPPY") Act can help keep families together.

Tell the House of Representative to make pet care more affordable. »

The HAPPY Act would help people provide their pets with the quality of life they deserve and ensure that more pets can stay in their loving homes instead of on the streets or in already overburdened shelters.

Under the act, people could claim tax deductions for their pet care expenses and possibly take an annual income tax deduction for pet care expenses, including veterinary costs.

Tell your representative to support and cosponser the HAPPY Act for affordable pet care. »

Thanks for taking action!

Did you know that 2 out of 3 animals who enter the shelter system never leave and that for needy or homeless families there are virtually no options for help to keep their pets!!

Lily’s Kitchen – A Dogs-Only Restaurant Opens in London

Lily’s Kitchen may not be the world’s first restaurant for dogs, but it’s certainly the coolest one right now. Dogs get to eat for free, have their bellies rubbed and can even listen to a nice story. What more could they ask for?

Lily’s Kitchen recently opened on Pimlico Road, in London’s upscale Belgravia neighborhood, and dog owners were quick to have their pooches test out the menu, for free. That’s right, your four-legged friends get to sit at one of the restaurant’s three tables and fill up their bellies with organic food served by a waiter, and you don’t have to pay for it. It sounds to good to be true, but this is just a clever way a dog food company has found to promote their line of organic foods.

During the six week period Lily’s Kitchen is open, dogs will get the chance to be the stars, for a change, while their owners relax or take care of their daily chores. The dogs are served their favorite dishes in paper bowls, by waiters who actually love serving canines, because they never complain about the food, check or stuff like that. After they’ve filled their stomachs, dogs have a wide range of pleasant activities to enjoy. They can have their bellies rubbed, snooze on a comfy sofa, have their aches soothed by a holistic vet, or even enjoy a nice story, read to them by members of the restaurant staff.

While there are always those who complain this sort of things are just stupid, many London dog owners are already in love with Lily’s Kitchen. It offers them the chance to carry on with their daily activities, knowing their dear companion is well taken care of. So even though Lily’s Kitchen is just a temporary establishment, a permanent restaurant for dogs could prove quite profitable.
