“Saving America’s Horses” WINS the RBC Environmental Film Award at the 2011 International Film North Film Festival.

We are extremely honored to receive this award, said filmmaker, Katia Louise. The entire team at “Saving America’s Horses is absolutely thrilled.  “”Saving America’s Horses” sends a powerful message that we are all connected: horse, man and nature. As Katia says in the film, “Their future is our future.”

Film North screened this year’s best contributions to this thought provoking and critical subject with a focus on their theme, “One Word, One World; Environment”.  “Saving America’s Horses” is an intelligent and powerful film that explores the environmental impact of the horse slaughter industry, the overgrazing of livestock and the removal of wild horses from open range lands.

Royal Bank of Canada was a leading sponsor in this year’s festival and they have made a global commitment to help protect the world’s most precious natural resource: fresh water.  As part of the environmental message brought forth in “Saving America’s Horses”, shocking evidence is revealed of exposure to toxic contaminants in freshwater supplies and the history of ramped environmental violations by horse slaughter plants.

“Saving America’s Horses” premiered in Canada on Sept. 24th winning this prestigious award. The screening was graced by the presence the filmmaker, cast, sponsor Vicky Hailey, and board members from the Canadian Horse Defense Coalition.

EXCERPT FROM THE ANIMAL DEFENSE LEAGUE OF CANADA NEWSLETTER  BULLETIN #178  FALL/WINTER 2011

“FACTORY-FARM BARN FIRES FILL OVER 23,000 ANIMALS IN FOUR DAYS” From Canadians for Ethical Treatment of Food Animals (CETFA), Vancouver, B.C., July 26, 2011

(Paraphrased):

‘Factory-barn fires are preventable – but they continue to occur because, in order to cut costs, they are highly automated with insufficient human maintenance and oversight.  This in spite of the fact that the toxic air from the waste of thousands of animals doesn’t only corrode the lungs of the confined animals – it also corrodes electrical wires and raises the likelihood of fire.  Furthermore, these animal death camps often lack either smoke sensors or sprinkler systems.  In this fire-trap situation, with many of the animals confined to metal gestation crates, concrete pens or battery cages, for animals to escape from the inferno is virtually impossible.”

BLOGGERS COMMENT:  THIS IS TOTALLY PREVENTABLE!!!   THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!!!    THIS CAN NO LONGER BE TOLERATED!!!

Well put by the ADLC in their own comment:  “Insurance companies take note – please raise premiums for factory barns lacking smoke sensors and sprinkler systems.”

In the mind of this writer:  Logic dictates that the simple installation of these life saving devices would save hundreds of thousands of Factory Farm Animals…does it not?  Properly retrofitting existing barns, by investing any farm subsidies received from the Federal Government to run such operations..makes sense…does it not?

Consider the amount of money that insurance companies dole out when these horrific incidents occur…don’t think for a minute that those insurance premiums paid out are not somehow reflected and passed on in the insurance premiums increases that we all are subject to.

What is truly THE TRAGEDY is that these confined, imprisoned, terrified animals suffered an excruciating death…why…so that the owners/operators of these Factory Farms could save a buck!!!!

Factory Farms with their gestation crates/pens are repositories of pure hell.

Battery hens, turkeys, pigs, all manner of food animals suffer!!

One need only do their research to learn the truth!!

Warning some of the videos and images contained in the links below are extremely graphic and horrifying.

Complaint Filed Against BLM Oregon for Lack of Transparency at Wild Horse Roundup

September 23, 2011

Public Observation of Capture Operation at Barren Valley Blocked as 7 Horses Die To Date

EXCERPT:

“The BLM Oregon’s actions in the Barren Valley roundup are unacceptable and make a mockery of the agency’s promises of transparency in capture operations,” said AWHPC director Suzanne Roy, in a letter to Ed Roberson, Assistant Director of the BLM and Joan Guillfoyle, BLM wild horse and burro division chief. “The lack of public observation is particularly egregious in light of the high number of horses who have died so far in the roundup, including two mustangs who broke their necks at the trapsite. We urge the BLM Washington to act to correct this unacceptable situation without delay.”

BLOGGERS COMMENT:  Each and every one of us can make a difference by speaking out on this issue.  We can make a difference no matter where we may be currently living , be it in North America, the U.S., Australia or France.

The point is, that if enough people around the Globe, contact the powers that be, contact those persons who continue to enable and condone these brutal round ups, they will then feel the needed pressure to end this.

WHEN   T HE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE FOCUSED in OUTRAGE AND DISGUST, when the VOICES CAN NO LONGER BE IGNORED…..

ONLY then may these lives be saved.

PLEASE, SHOUT FROM THE ROOFTOPS…..SAVE THE LIVES OF THESE MAGNIFICENT AND BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

EXCERPT FROM:  ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND:

‘The “American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011″ (S. 1176) will end the slaughter of horses for human consumption and the domestic and international transport of live horses or horseflesh for human consumption.’

ANIMALS IN NEED

Rusty & Bear:  4 yr. Brothers, ‘Gentle Giants’ Yellow Labrador Retriever Mixes Size Extra Large • Adult • Male  519-966-5751 Windsor  They are a bonded pair of family pets (ask what age children) who need a home together. To separate such a pair can negatively affect their health. They will keep each other company when you are not home. Labs of this age need regular exercise and can also be settled companions. Shelter states: “Rusty & Bear are Lab Shepherd mixes who need to be adopted into the same home. They were brought to the shelter when their family moved. They are both large/extra large dogs but now even moreso because they have not been exercised and are *overweight. Both are described by their former family as sweet and affectionate. Rusty is ~130 lbs. good on leash, plays with toys! Bear is ~100 lbs. good in the car, knows sit, stay, come, and down commands. He is afraid of loud noises and is pretty mellow. Adoption Includes: 45 days Ontario SPCA Pet Insurance Standard Vaccinations (excluding rabies) Microchip identification Spay/Neuter Flea treatment Deworming Heatworm testing for dogs  Dogs receive three training sessions as part of their adoption fee.” *Good quality natural food and regular moderate exercise should help them to drop some pounds and will surely affect their long-term health.

I am putting out an urgent plea in hope of saving these dogs at Hamilton Animal Control.  These dogs have been there close to 2 months, sitting 24/7 in a concrete kennel, with no outside time and little to no human contact.  The situation there is desperate.  They have all received first set of vaccinations, an advantage treatment and deworming.  Please if you can help anyone it would be greatly appreciated.  Rescue is the only hope for these dogs – this facility does not have an adoption program.  If you can help please send me an email at deannaaarfrescue@yahoo.ca   Please do not try to call this facility or go there – I will co-ordinate the release of the dog. Deanna Maerz

BORDER COLLIE MIX MALE NOT NEUTERED This boy came in as a stray.  Came in, in rough shape.  Missing hair on back end (fleas) which is growing in nicely and has overgrown nails.  We guess his age to be about 4ish years old?  He is very hyper in the kennel and starting to get really vocal probably due to him sitting there for so long already.  He is an active boy and will benefit from an active life style. -handling test – once he finally settled down, I was able to look in his ears, mouth, pinch his toes, grab tail and hips with no reaction from him at all. -food test – ate around the tester hand and took bigger gulps of the food when the hand approached his bowl.  He did place his mouth on the tester hand (as a warning) but didn’t snap or bite it. -meeting staff- happy to greet/meet anyone he see’s! -dog on dog – totally avoided the tester dog (lab X).  It didn’t bother him that the other dog was there he was just not interested in her.  I couldn’t get him to focus on the bunnies at all.

 

 

 

 

COLLIE MIX FEMALE NOT SPAYED This girl came in as a stray.  Maybe about 8 months old?  VERY active and hyper.  She isn’t very mannerly and constantly jumping up on people and things.  Knows some basic commands like sit.  Very busy and always on the go.  Wouldn’t recommend a home with ANY small animals or children.  She needs exercise +++  -handling test – HYPER, HYPER!!  Once she settled down she let me look in her ears, mouth, pinch toes, grab tail and hips with no problems.  -meeting staff – happy go lucky girl and happy to greet/meet anyone.  will jump on anyone. -food test – she ate all around the tester hand when hand approached bowl.  She didn’t lose focus on the food and took bigger gulps. -dog on dog – met a female pittie X.  Her body was stiff, hackles slightly raised and rushed right in to greet dog but wasn’t quite sure of her.  Once she saw the bunny she completely lost focus of the tester dog (that was right beside her) and fixated +++ on that bunny.  took her up to the bunny cage and she snapped quite a few times at the cage trying to get at the bunny.  With proper greeting and exercise/supervision shouldn’t be a huge problem with other dogs.

 

 

 

SHEPHERD MIX MALE NOT NEUTERED:  This boy came in as a stray.  Guess his age to be about 10 months-1 year.  Overall a nice boy.  He is young and needs training, needs confidence building and leash training.  He panics/flails when leash is pulled to tightly.  A little goofy at times and calms down nicely.  Will probably bond pretty quickly with his new owner. -handling test – was able to look in ears, mouth, pinch toes, grab tail/hips with no problems other then when I pinched his toes he got a little mouthy with me but no pressure.  -meeting staff – he approaches on his own when meeting other people and shows some hesitation.  A little nervous at first but calms down -food test – no reaction from him at all when tester hand approached bowl while eating or taking food bowl away.  Good boy. -dog on dog – was very odd meeting 1st test dog, flailed up on back, legs pulling to get away.  Retested with a female dog and he seemed a little more relaxed and met with no problem.  When we were walking the female dog away he started to flail again.  Took him up to the bunnies.  ears perked up, bright eyes when he saw the bunny move.  Use caution with small animals until you get to know him and his personality.

 

 

 

 

Parker & Peter: German Shepherd Dogs Large • Adult • Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • Housetrained Parker arrived as a stray with his brother Peter. Both boys are well behaved and friendly. Parker would like a new home with his brother, Peter. Upper Credit Humane Society, Erin, ON (519) 833-2287 adoptions@uppercredit.com (thanks bobbie glazier for constantly watching out for these dogs)
