A dear friend sent me this video…it says it all really.

Canada continues to import Dog/Cat fur products from China….this must end.  Enough blood is on the hands of Canada, between the horrific continued Seal Slaughter (Canada negotiating deal with China for seal products which resulted in Animal Welfare protests by some Chinese citizens);  Canada imports US mustangs into this country for slaughter in Canadian death houses;  dog breeder in Canada breeds beagles to send to research labs, Quebec puppy mills raided, 100’s of dogs rescued and put down;  kitten mills thrive, wild horses in Alberta being murdered;  retired race horses going to Quebec slaughter houses;  not to mention sport hunting;  not to mention Factory Farm animals being burned alive due to failure to ensure safety measures;  dogs/cats being abandoned, tortured, discarded like trash…..

Enough is enough!!  http://youtu.be/E2rjXbxi_gk

Actions Speak Louder than Words

https://giftofloki.wordpress.com/2012/02/26/actions-speak-louder-than-words/

Remember, fur belongs to the animal wearing it, it looks far better on them than as a collar or cuff on some coat, glove or boot.  The new fake furs are beautiful, cheaper and take less care.

Photographs are life long trophies, reminders of having witnessed the animal in the wild, the majesty of their freedom…..a head stuck on the wall does not.

Stroking ones ego at the cost of a life is unforgivable.

Today’s News

“We received word from Leslie Peeples that yesterday, the Ninth Circuit denied BLMs appeal in the case allowing access to observe the handling of wild horses.”

 

“Could someone explain to me how the slaughter “option” is gone but the numbers keep climbing? Also curious is the increase in exports to Japan. Canada is down and Mexico is up.”

 

“Our thanks to Darell Charleton, Jr. for providing these disgusting numbers.”

“A pregnant black mare was found shot Sunday alongside the old Ramsey Mine Road in the Asamara Ranch area north of Stagecoach near the proposed USA Parkway extension route.    This location is not far from where several cattle were found shot last month, one with its head dragged off.”

Report from the La Palette “Join Up” this past weekend in Toronto

Posted on April 16, 2012

Report from Marie Dean, CHDC:

“The conflict continued this weekend outside of La Palette restaurant inToronto.   The respect for the horse was presented on both Friday and Saturday.”

“For a few short moments in time I felt the world was lost.  I felt the presence of darkness.  Supporters of La Palette expressed their hatred of animal welfare and their dark souls enlightened us with their joy of cruelty towards other living creatures. ”   http://canadianhorsedefencecoalition.wordpress.com/2012/04/16/report-from-the-la-palette-join-up-this-past-weekend-in-toronto/

Update April 12, 2012

The Refuge is still in dire need of the funds.      Here is an excerpt from a message of April 7, 2012,  from Rose, owner of RR
“To be honest with you not much money is coming in for the water…It’s is a very touchy situation where most people in cities and suburbs don’t understand how there can be no water…Well water sometimes is not a permanent source of water and unlucky for us….we have to dig another well.”

 Bloggers Note:  Water is having to be hauled in for the horses by Rose herself, often from neighboring areas.  This has been an ongoing problem for some time and she needs to have a new well drilled on her property.

There is a fundraiser planned for April 28th, 2012 in Pointe Claire.
