ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Support Stronger Pet Food Safety Regulations 

For the first time the FDA is taking a proactive approach to dealing with pet food safety, instead of waiting for problem foods to hit the market with a proposal that will regulate production practices for  food for both companion animals and livestock that are similar to regulations for human food. 

Please sign the petition urging the FDA to enact these regulations. 


Check here for more info and to submit a public comment directly to the FDA:


2. Help Protect Puffins from Starving

Changing ocean temperatures have adversely affected a number of species, including puffins whose food source has moved to cooler temperatures, leaving them with no food for their young. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed new requirements that would help with carbon pollution from power plants, but Big Polluters are fighting it. 

Please send a letter to the EPA urging the agency to help protect wildlife from climate change by limiting carbon pollution. 


3. Save Mute Swans Near JFK Airport

The USDA's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service is considering plans to kill mute swans passing through JFK airspace in an effort to promote aircraft safety. Animal advocates believe that this is not only cruel, but also senseless because more birds will move in later, and are pushing for non-lethal alternatives. 

Please submit a comment asking the USDA to use non-lethal alternatives that have proven to be effective elsewhere.
