Justice for the 'Dog with no Name'

If you love animals – or are simply a decent, compassionate human being – please add your name to our petition to demand justice for the dog that starved to death at the end of a chain, in plain sight of its uncaring owner. This was not a stray or abandoned animal. It was kept like this on the owners’ property, literally withering away to skin and bone in front of their eyes. They could have brought it to the SPCA – or at the very least turned it loose so it could try to scavenge some scraps fr

Defend Gay Conversion Therapy

We, the undersigned, consider that Theresa May's proposed ban on offering therapy, healing or prayer for people wishing to be free of same-sex attraction is an attack on freedom of speech, on freedom of choice, on freedom of association, and inasmuch as Christianity may form the backdrop to a desire to be free from same-sex desires, or may constitute an element of the healing process offered, on religious freedom. We call upon Members of Parliament to reject this attempt to to criminalise ideas.

Stop Corruption in NZ Family Court System. Reform Family Court petition

Millions of dollars change hand a year in this industry which is responsible for destroying hundreds of thousands of lives and families each year. When having their authority challenged, the truth told and their incompetencies in their processes and practices highlighted, they resort to bringing into question the state of health of the parent and the emotional well-being of the children, things that should not be a consideration. This cannot continue. Families are being ripped apart purely becau

Stop the killing of straycats in the city of Bruges, Belgium!

Straycats are being killed because of ‘huntinglaws’ in the shelter of Bruges. Non profit organisation Kat zoekt thuis (‘Cat looking for a home’) has been neutering starycats for years in Bruges, at their own expense. Normally, this is at the responsibility and costs of the city counsel. In the past, we have had numerous contacts with the city counsel to improve the straycat-policy. Now, sadly, the city of Bruges is placing huntinglaws above animal welfare. Feral straycats are not neutered and r
