Alec Baldwin Uncovers Elephant Abuse Under the Big Top  
  With a quarter-century of  experience behind him, Academy Award nominee Alec Baldwin has enough big- and small-screen hits under his belt to speak with authority about the entertainment industry. So when this card-carrying PETA member reports that a show-biz act appalls him, audiences everywhere should listen. In his shocking exposé, Alec reveals what circuses' bright lights and colorful costumes cannot hide: that elephants who are forced to perform are confined, whipped, and beaten for each show. Watch the video now.

hsus: Help Save Helpless Cats at Washington University in St. Louis!!! - 02/20/12 09:28 PM
Dear Kristin, Despite protests from you and more than 90,000 other PETA supporters, Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) continues to use cats and ferrets in cruel and archaic intubation training exercises in conjunction with St. Louis Children's Hospital. During this harmful exercise, the animals have hard plastic tubes forced down their delicate windpipes for intubation training—even though modern, superior simulators are available and widely used across the country for this very purpose. WUSTL can try to ignore the recommendations of leading medical organizations and experts in the field who strongly endorse the use of simulators for intubation training—but we can't … (9 comments)

HOW TO: Help a Chained Dog This Month  
 
   
All too often, "man's best friend" is sentenced to a miserable life of solitary confinement, trapped at the end of a chain. In order to raise awareness of these "forgotten" dogs, PETA has declared January "Unchain a Dog" Month, and we have just what you need to help a lonely, neglected dog in your neighborhood.
How You Can Help There are two basic ways to improve the life of a "backyard dog":
Work with guardians to help backyard dogs in non-emergency situations. Begin by talking to guardians about what their dogs … (16 comments)

PLEASE CROSS POST AND SPREAD THE WORD SO WE CAN HELP THESE ANIMALS!
 
 
10.25.10 - PARDEEVILLE, WI
 
MAPPAR (The Midwest Animal and Potbellied Pig Association and Rescue) Sanctuary is losing its property due to economic conditions and is in need of placing its animals while it re-organizes with a new Board so that the mission of providing sanctuary for rescued animals may continue. Since many sanctuaries have already closed in an area where there was already a shortage of animal rescues, it is imperative that the animals get placed until another multi-species animal sanctuary can be established.

In South Carolina: Barbaric Bear Baiting Dear Kristin, HSUS investigators recently attended several bear baiting events in South Carolina. What they found will shock you.
A captive bear -- claws and many teeth cut down or removed -- is tied up and abused for hours. The S.C. Department of Natural Resources gives permits to people who release teams of dogs to harass and bite terrified, defenseless bears.
Please sign the petition asking the South Carolina DNR to revoke possession permits from anyone who uses bears in these cruel spectacles, and inspect all captive bears to ensure they are not used for … (18 comments)

hsus: Please Help Save the Lions! - 08/07/10 01:40 AM

August 2, 2010
Dear Kristin,
Last month, I told you about the cruel practice of hunting lions in captive facilities, known as "canned hunting," in South Africa. Today, I'd like to tell you about 16 lions rescued from these operations who are in dire need of help. Please make a special gift now to keep these lions alive and safe.
In 2003, SanWild, a well-respected animal protection organization in South Africa, saved this pride from certain death at the hands of trophy hunters: Jespha, the stunning black-maned male; two adult females, Nikana and Ntombi; their two newborn cubs, Rongo and … (9 comments)

Humane Society International, The HSUS Celebrate Shark Protection  
Concurrent with the beginning of the 23rd year of Discovery Channel's annual Shark Week, Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States celebrate recent advances in shark conservation and urge the public to take action to protect these magnificent ocean predators.
Sharks are disappearing from the oceans at an astonishingly rapid rate as overfishing and burgeoning demand for their fins, a main ingredient in shark fin soup, have led to the depletion of many populations and some entire species.  
Viewers of Shark Week and shark supporters have much to celebrate … (14 comments)

hsus: Cat Facts By Kristin Johnston,Waukesha County Realtor! - 07/22/10 01:53 AM
Just like last week, here are more interesting facts about cats: 1.  Cats hear sounds, especially the can opener, four or fives times farther away than humans. 2.  A cat's satellite-dish ears can rotate 180 degrees to pinpoint and funnel sounds into the ear canal. 3.  A cat up to 3 feet away from the origin of a sound can pinpoint its location to within a few inches in .06 seconds. 4.  A cat's sense of smell is keen.  Its olfactory membrane is about 14 square centimeters compared to 4 square centimeters for humans. 5.  Nepetalactone, the substance in catnip that … (18 comments)

hsus: Save the Whales! - 07/02/10 01:42 AM

June 28, 2010 Dear Kristin, It was a close call, but you made the difference: the attempt to sink the ban on commercial whaling was blocked!
At last week’s international meeting to determine the fate of the world’s whales, some nations and groups pushed for a deal that would have granted authority for Norway, Japan, and Iceland to kill whales. But they couldn’t drum up the support -- and that was because of an outpouring of public concern: You said that all whaling must end.
You told the Obama administration that protecting whales was more important than pleasing whalers, and … (7 comments)

Dear Kristin,
Less than a day after PETA released heartbreaking photos drawing attention to the plight of more than 50 dogs who were transported on a Lufthansa cargo plane from the U.S. to an animal-testing facility in Scotland, Lufthansa took prompt action by announcing a new policy prohibiting the transport of dogs and cats to laboratories.
Without the help of you and more than 22,000 other compassionate people who contacted Lufthansa within the first 24 hours, … (11 comments)

Dear Kristin,
This is amazing. People from around the world are pledging to do whatever it takes to convince Canada to stop slaughtering seals for their fur. I’ve asked my friends to send the Canadian government a message. Please ask your friends, too.
Look what some notable friends of seals are promising to do if Canada ends the hunt:

Last night, Nightline examined some of the controversy surrounding the dairy industry's treatment of cows.
Contrary to the industry's advertising campaign filled with green pastures and happy cows, many of the nation's nine million dairy cows never step on a blade of grass in their lives.
There are many serious concerns about the welfare of these animals. The HSUS led the successful fight last year in California to ban one significant assault on these animals: the tail-docking of cows.
