ANiMAL PETiTiONS CORNER by Alicia of WoodsEdge

Presented by Alicia of WoodsEdge

1. Tell United Airlines to Apologize and Pay for the Dog it Nearly Killed

Janet Sinclair trusted United Airlines' PetSafe program to keep her pets safe while she moved to Boston to San Diego. Unfortunately, the airline almost killed her greyhound, Sedona, and her cat, Alika, while she watched in horror as their crates were left out on the hot tarmac in above 90 degree heat and Sedona's crate was repeatedly kicked by a worker. Sedona almost died of heat stroke and spent days in intensive care. The airline offered to pay close to $3000 in vet bills, but only if she kept quiet and signed a nondisclosure agreement. Sinclair refused and is trying to raise awareness about what the airline did to her animals so other pet parents know what happened. 

Please sign the petition asking United Airlines to pay for Sedona's vet bills, apologize and improve their pet transport program. 

2. Tell San Francisco Butterflies Aren't Party Favors

Last week the Commission on the Environment heard testimony from experts about the effects of releasing commercially bred butterflies for special occasions, such as weddings or funerals, which environmentalists believe is hurting butterflies and hindering efforts to protect them in the wild. From their potential to spread diseases and weaken wild populations to the cruelty inherent in shipping them long distances, there are a number of scientific and ethical reasons to support a ban. 

Please sign the petition urging San Francisco's Board of Supervisors to send a message that butterflies aren't party favors by banning the release of commercially bred butterflies.  

3. Tell Olympic City Not to Exploit Orcas

In light of the growing opposition to keeping whales and dolphins in captivity for our amusement, the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics plans to showcase two recently wild-caught orca whales and use an endangered dolphin as a torchbearer before the opening ceremony during this years games in Sochi, Russia. 

Please sign the petition asking the International Olympic Committee and Sochi Organizing Committee to return the orcas to their families in the Sea of Okhotsk immediately.
