Elephant Suffers Prolonged Death From Topeka Zoo Negligence
Topeka Zoo in Kansas failed, on many brutal counts, to adequately care for Shannon, a 35-year old African elephant who died on December 11. Shannon spent roughly ten excruciating hours on her side overnight - with no monitoring of her situation from Zoo staff after they left for the evening. This is inexcusable since Shannon, the Zoo's youngest elephant, was found "downed" on her side on the previous day, when the Zoo called firefighters to help hoist her to her feet. We can't let the three remaining elephants suffer the same fate!
Wild Burros Under Threat From Trump's Budget Plan
As the new year begins, let us take a moment to remember a species whose members are noble, long-eared animals, so often maligned, who have already had so much taken from them for humans' collective benefit over the centuries and still to this day in many countries. Donkeys and burros have suffered enough, and we can't let the last remaining wild burros face a brutal end by gun massacre on the range.
Factory Farms Forced to Report Their Deadly Emissions
For more than eight years, factory farms haven't had to report their toxic emissions to the federal government, but very soon they will. Thanks in part to your support, and the incredible dedication of Earthjustice attorneys, factory farms will be required to participate in mandatory emission reporting as of January 22, 2018.
Mindfulness Supports Our Activism
Bob Isaacson co-facilitated a workshop on mindfulness and meditation for activists at the Animal Rights National Conference earlier this year, sharing ancient techniques to calm and direct our minds. Paying mindful attention to present moment experiences can lead to clarity, relaxation, and harmony with our experiences. Now we're bringing this experience to you during our webinar!
Choose Love from a Rescued Animal Instead
Thinking of getting a new furry friend or two? Before going to a local pet shop or breeder, you should know this: animals from community shelters are the best choice. If you were thinking of buying pedigreed animal companions from a breeder or pet shop, be warned. You may not like what you're getting into.
