Ends October 31, 2017
LB with Sunny and Riley
 In honor of my founding member dogs, Sunny boy and Riley and the thousands of others that have lost their battles with cancer, in their memory, I've been working on cancer prevention, for the last few years and it's proven successful!  The dogs I've had on the program that I created with experts are all still alive and thriving. It's a miracle! 
 This T-shirt campaign helps to continue the funding  for cancer prevention and to get the word out far and wide, demanding clean pet food, grain free, the supporting herbs, and CBD oil's for pets!  I no longer do chemotherapy or radiation which causes such sickness and usually a faster and to their precious lives!
 I've been posting the information on my Facebook & website for the last year. I hope you've been following... For anyone that's new, we have all lost a pet to cancer and it's broken our hearts! My life goal is to put an end to cancer in pets! It's all in the food! Our animals were given cheaper foods through the years that allowed cancer to thrive. Now we are stopping it! Please help me on this journey and support the work I do with animal rescue and cancer prevention by supporting this T-shirt campaign through October 31st! I'm counting on you to help me to help the animals in the world to have a healthier, loving and anti-cruelty life!

Hello! My name is Christina George. I have a German Shepherd named Shadow who will be three years old in April 2017. Shadow needs help. He has been sadly diagnosed with severe Hip Dysplasia in his right hip. He also has severe osteoarthritis and is in great pain. Shadow also has a right hip bone deformity. His right knee is swollen and enlarged. Shadow's right hip is actually out of socket. After he was seen for his orthopedic consult, the doctors say surgery is his only option. In Shadow's severe case a total hip replacement is the only choice to give him the best chance for a long, happy, pain free life.https://www.gofundme.com/HelpSaveShadowBear

USAToday.com and USA Today National Network to Live Stream Telethon

 

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (December 8, 2016) – Several famous names have been added to the growing list of celebrities set to perform during Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. (EST). Chris Stapleton, Chris Young, Big & Rich, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, LOCASH, Chris Janson and Montgomery Gentry are just a few of the new names added to perform during the event, which also has added three new broadcast partners, AXS TV, RFD and The Heartland Network.

The nationally-broadcast, three-hour telethon seeks to raise money for the Dollywood Foundation My People Fund, established by Parton, The Dollywood Company and Parton’s dinner theaters in the wake of last week’s wildfires in the entertainment icon’s home area of Sevier County, Tennessee. Smoky Mountains Rise also will be simulcast across multiple radio chains, including iHeart Media's digital and select on-air platforms, Cumulus Media's NASH Nights LIVE, TuneIn's Country Roads channel, and several other platforms which are set to be announced shortly. All of the artists are donating their performances to help the effort.

“I’m truly honored that these artists are giving their time and energy to help us raise money for everyone affected by the wildfires,” Parton said. “I’ve got so many great friends in the industry, and I’m so proud that they were so ready to step up and help me help my people in the Smoky Mountains through this telethon and the My People Fund.”

The My People Fund will provide $1000 each month to Sevier County families whose homes are uninhabitable or were completely destroyed in the recent Smoky Mountain wildfires. Any family who lost their primary residence (renters and homeowners) due to the wildfires in Sevier County will be eligible. A pre-application for those affected is available at dollywoodfoundation.org.

During the telethon, viewers will be asked to call 1-866-CARE MORE to donate to the My People Fund.

This morning, November 23, 2015, we welcomed three adult tigers recently confiscated by the Dept. of Agriculture from a house somewhere in the State of Ohio....... The tigers have names, the two females, Kendra and Jania, and  the male, Shur-Kan. Other than that, no information has been made available to us, no medical records are available, not even their ages. All three were apparently living together in a small cage. They were all exhausted and unnerved by the long drive from the state of Ohio. They are now in the  quarantine area here at THE SHAMBALA PRESERVE. It will take time for them to relax and feel secure. In a few days our veterinarian Dr. Gay Naiditch will do a work up on them to give us a base on the condition of their health.They will come into the preserve after their month's quarantine which will be approximately Christmas Time. Their introduction to the Preserve will be in the Bus Compound with the river access for them. All of us at SHAMBALA are grateful to be able to give these extremely needy animals a really wonderful, safe life, with the care of humans who really love and care about them.
 
Jania

Dear Jon,
 
A lot has happened this week with McDonald’s—one of the largest fast-food chains in the world—and thanks to your support, MFA has been at the forefront of these developments.
 
On Wednesday, McDonald’s publicly announced its commitment to going 100 percent cage-free for its U.S. and Canadian egg supply chains. This landmark change will spare nearly 8 million birds each year from a life crammed in cages so small they can’t freely walk, spread their wings, nest, or engage in other basic natural behaviors. While cage-free doesn’t mean cruelty-free, it represents progress.
 
This major shift didn’t happen on its own. For years, MFA and other organizations have campaigned to make this day a reality. Over the years, MFA has conducted investigations at multiple McDonald’s egg suppliers in both the U.S. and Canada, documenting the horrific animal cruelty and severe neglect inherent in confining birds in barren cages. Our hidden cameras exposed birds suffering from open wounds, carcasses left to rot in cages, and other sickening findings.
 
MFA’s campaign to convince McDonald’s to stop confining egg-laying hens in cages included more than 200,000 consumer signatures on our online petitions and the support of animal-friendly celebrities, including Ryan Gosling, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Deschanel, and Alicia Silverstone.
 
With its cage-free egg announcement, McDonald’s has demonstrated not only that it’s able to drive important change for animals, but also that it’s listening to consumers’ growing concern about the treatment of animals used for food.
 
 
While we celebrate McDonald’s progress in reducing the suffering endured by egg-laying hens, there is still work to be done. Now is the time for the fast-food giant to take meaningful steps to also reduce the cruelty endured by the birds killed for its Chicken McNuggets.
 
Nothing could make this fact clearer than the criminal animal cruelty charges brought yesterday against the owners of a McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets supplier farm after an MFA investigator exposed them beating and stabbing chickens using a spiked club, and standing on the birds’ heads and pulling their wings or bodies to break their necks.
 
MFA is calling on McDonald’s to swiftly adopt meaningful animal welfare policies to end many of the worst forms of cruelty to “broiler” chickens—those raised and killed for meat. Specifically, MFA is calling on McDonald’s to end selective breeding of birds for rapid growth and to shift to slower-growing breeds of birds to prevent health problems related to accelerated growth; provide birds with more space, clean litter, access to natural light, and environmental enrichments; and replace live-shackle slaughter methods with less cruel systems.
 
With your support, we can make this happen, further reducing the suffering experienced by millions of birds each year.
 
Here is what you can do:
It’s never been clearer that the days of cruel factory farms are numbered. But we must continue to push forward to ensure their final day arrives.
 
Sincerely,
 

 
Nathan Runkle

Dream ending for circus lions rescued in South America:  
Huge airlift to take 33 lions home to Africa

September 1, 2015 - Thirty-three lions rescued by Animal Defenders International (ADI) from ten circuses in Peru and Colombia are going home to their native Africa in the biggest ever airlift of its kind.  
 
The lions, who endured years of confinement in cages on the backs of trucks and a brutal life being forced to perform in circuses, are heading to huge natural enclosures at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa.
 
The airlift in October will be the culmination of ADI’s work with the Governments of Peru and Colombia to eliminate the use of wild animals in circuses. ADI evidence of the abuse of circus animals in Latin America led to legislation banning animal acts and then ADI stepped in to help enforce the laws.
 
Almost all of the rescued lions have been mutilated to remove their claws, one has lost an eye, another is almost blind, and many have smashed and broken teeth because of their circus life, but they will retire in the African sunshine.
 
Jan Creamer, ADI President, who is leading the rescue mission in Peru, said:  “We are delighted that these lions who have suffered so much will be going home to Africa where they belong.  The climate and environment are perfect for them. When we visited Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary we knew this is a dream come true for ADI and, more importantly, the lions.”
 
ADI’s year-long Operation Spirit of Freedom, working with the Peru Government SERFOR and ATFFS wildlife departments, as well as police, has seen ADI raid circuses all over the country, facing violent confrontations, rescuing over 90 animals, travelling thousands of miles, and traversing the Andes with lions.  
 
Nine ex-circus lions from Colombia will join 24 lions from Peru on the flight to South Africa. They are the first animals to be handed over following Colombia’s ban on wild animal circuses and taken into care by the CDMB regional wildlife authority in Bucaramanga. ADI assumed the lions’ care until the flight was finalized. 
 
Home for the lions will be Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary set in 5,000 hectares on a private estate in Limpopo Province, South Africa. The sanctuary is already home to eight rescued lions and tigers in large acreage habitats of pristine African bush, has a no breeding policy and is not open to the public.  
 
Savannah Heuser, founder of Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary says: “Mahatma Gandhi once said; 'Be the change that you wish to see in the world.'  The change that is being offered to these 33 lions will change their entire world. 
 
Their lives were forcibly wasted away in horrific tiny cages, the doing of mindless circus acts, I cannot start to comprehend the endless days suffering that these animals had to endure. They have a lot of lost time to make up for. They will live out the rest of their lives in a natural habitat, the closest they can ever come to freedom.”
 
ADI is chartering a Boeing 747 to transport all 33 lions with an ADI veterinary team, direct from Lima to Johannesburg and is funding the construction of habitats for the lions at Emoya, ready for the arrival of the lions in late October.
 
Over ninety animals have been rescued during the ADI operation, which also provided assistance to the Peruvian authorities on the issue of wildlife crime.  ADI is concluding a huge construction program for over 50 native wild animals rescued during the operation in two parts of the Amazon, including bears, six species of monkeys, coati mundis, kinkajous, and a puma.
 
Jan Creamer paid tribute to governments, wildlife officials and the public in Peru and Colombia:  “Seeing these lions go home to where they truly belong will be a testament to the commitment of wildlife officials and the governments in Peru and Colombia to change the treatment of animals.”
 
Peru’s wild animal circus ban was passed in 2011, and between August 2014 and July 2015, the ADI team identified and raided every circus with wild animals.  Some circuses went underground as the raids commenced, but were eventually caught.  Only one circus reported to have a lioness is still to be found, which was pursued into Ecuador by the ADI team in July this year. Wildlife officials and the local ADI team are on alert should the circus reappear.
 
ADI previously enforced Bolivia’s animal circus ban, relocating many animals within the country and taking 29 lions to two sanctuaries in the US, and a baboon to the UK. ADI’s Operation Spirit of Freedom in Peru and Colombia has been an even larger undertaking.
 
Savannah Heuser:  “We at Emoya are deeply honored and privileged to be part of such a massive operation. We salute ADI for saving animals and ending suffering. Let's bring these 33 to Africa. Let's bring them home.”
 
Moving the lions to Africa increases the flight costs, but it is the ideal home for the animals and ADI believes, the right thing to do. An appeal has been launched to meet the increased flight costs as well as the enclosures for the lions.
 
Jan Creamer:  “We really need financial support for this move.  It is more expensive to relocate these animals to Africa, but who can put a price on taking them home to where they belong?   It also sends such a clear and important message about protecting wildlife in their natural habitats and ranges.”
 
Until their flight, planned for end October, the lions will remain at the ADI Spirit of Freedom Rescue Center near Lima, Peru, where they will continue their rehabilitation under ADI veterinary supervision and enjoying their with grassy play pens, but the best is yet to come!
 
Please donate now to help get the lions home www.ad-international.org/hometoafrica
 

For Immediate Release

Born Free USA's "Pets Go Wild for Wildlife" Photo Contest Calling for Cats and Dogs Acting Wild

Washington D.C. August 27, 2015 -- Born Free USA, a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, has announced its “Pets Go Wild for Wildlife” photo contest, seeking photos of furry family members acting “wild”: running like a cheetah, swimming like an orca, leaping like a gazelle, pouncing like a fox… or just going "wild" in general. 

According to Adam M. Roberts, CEO of Born Free USA and the Born Free Foundation, “We work to keep wildlife in the wild – but all of us at Born Free also love our dogs and cats and know that our supporters and the public do too. We thought this would be a fun, creative way to celebrate all animals and share their antics with terrific photos.  Also, by noticing and capturing the moments your dog or cat acts ‘wild,’ we hope you will consider the connection between domestic animals and wild animals. Your cat and the big cats in the jungle. Your dog and the majestic wolf.  They are not all that different, and they all deserve our compassion.”

Entrants can submit as many photos as they would like. The contest is open to dogs and cats only. The three photos with the most votes receive prizes. First place prize is the winner's choice between an iPad or an Apple Watch. Prizes will also be awarded for the top voted dog, top voted cat, most "promotes" through the contest site, and Born Free USA staff favorite. An entrant can only win for one category.  The fee to enter is $10 per photo entry and $1 per vote to participate in the contest.  Each contribution helps Born Free USA raise needed funds to continue life-saving work for wildlife around the globe.   Contest DEADLINE is September 25, 2015 at 12 Noon ET.   

Born Free USA is a global leader in animal welfare and wildlife conservation. Through litigation, legislation, and public education, Born Free USA leads vital campaigns against animals in entertainment, exotic “pets,” trapping and fur, and the destructive international wildlife trade. Born Free USA brings to North America the message of “compassionate conservation”—the vision of the United Kingdom-based Born Free Foundation, established in 1984 by Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna, stars of the iconic film Born Free, along with their son, Will Travers. Born Free’s mission is to end suffering of wild animals in captivity, conserve threatened and endangered species, and encourage compassionate conservation globally.
