This wonderful rescue in Thailand has saved thousands of dogs from a horrible cruel fate of being skinned alive and then being cruelly killed for their meat for the dinner table in Thailand. You and help by donating what you can to save these dogs, feed them, spay and neuter them and find loving home for them. To me, it would be over whelming but John and Cindy Daley do it everyday. They are amazing people.Read More

While the world’s attention focuses on Japan’s annual dolphin-killing season under way in Taiji, Iceland has been quietly escalating the hunting of endangered fin whales.
But no one seems to be paying much attention, according to a report released Wednesday on the eve of the annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC), which enforces an international ban on the commercial hunting of whales.
“Iceland’s escalating whale hunts are clear and willful abuses of the IWC’s moratorium as well as the ban on international commercial trade in whale products,” states the report issued by the Environmental Invest...Read More
Warning, graphic undercover videos of how cruel and abusive workers at Leprino Dairy Farm in Denver shock, beat and drag sick downed cows to trailers to go to slaughter.

Flavio spent his entire life in the circus. He was supposed to be one of the smartest tigers that ever performed. We are so glad he was able to spend his last days at Big Cat Rescue.
Flavio arrived at Big Cat Rescue in 2002 after retiring from the circus. He was hailed as the smartest circus tiger ever known. He performed a light and music number flawlessly for years until he decided one day that he didn’t like the other tigers and all he wanted to do was fight.

Siberian Tiger Foundation Rescue
It took the combined efforts of USDA, undercover agents and concerned citizens seven years to shut down Diana McCourt and the Siberian Tiger Foundation. It wasn’t until her landlords were able to evict her from the property that Knox County was able to seize the six cats that had been used for years as props in a “tiger training” scheme. Even though McCourt lost her USDA license to operate the tiger-tamer camp in 2000, and permanently in 2006, she continued to charge people to come into her back yard in Gambier, OH and pet the adult lions and tigers. The cats would often be chained down so that people could touch them or have their photos made with the cats. To make the cats more pliable McCourt had their teeth and claws removed...Read More
