Demand Justice for Racing Horse Left to Be Consumed Alive by Maggots

After running 62 races and earning his "owners" a quarter million dollars, racehorse Dr. Drip was finally "retired" in Opelousas, Louisiana. He deserved a herd of friends and a lush pasture to enjoy his true glory days. Instead, at only 13 years of age, Dr. Drip was covered in bloody raw saddle sores and abscesses, and coughing blood. He was being consumed from the inside out by maggots. His neglect was so severe that he had to be euthanized to end his torment of being eaten alive. Jermaine Dwayne Doucet Jr. was arrested on a felony animal cruelty charge and his bond was set at $5,000, yet nothing has happened since the arrest. We must demand justice for Dr. Drip!

Fragile Victory for Navajo Horses

Wild horses roaming on Navajo Nation (NN) lands just dodged a hail of bullets. In February the NN Fish and Game Department proclaimed a "horse hunt," offering licenses to shoot 60 horses in the Carrizo mountain area of northwest Arizona. The notice created a public outcry throughout the US. NN President Russel Begaye cancelled the hunt, saying the issue needed to be discussed fully within tribal councils. 96,000 horses still need your help.

This Dead Pool Must NEVER See Daylight!

Imagine spending your whole life in one concrete, barren room — forced to perform the same mundane tricks over and over.

Imagine being artificially inseminated, against your will — RAPED! — then having your child taken from you permanently, or watching them die before your eyes.

Imagine it happening again, and again, and again... and they have the gall to call it “conservation” and "education"? NO way!

You are being lied to about the real lives of captive cetaceans — whales, porpoises, and dolphins — and about a murderous new dolphin facility that is now trying to open in Mississippi.
