    Barbaric! End the Yulin Dog Meat Slaughter

    Barbaric!  End the Yulin Dog Meat Slaughter
    Thousands of dogs, many of them are stolen beloved pets, captured and transported over long distances under horrific conditions to Yulin, a city in China\'s Guangxi Autonomous Region. There, they\'re held in crowded cages without food or water until they are killed. Often, they are beaten and their throats are slit in front of other terrified animals by heartless dog meat traders. Most Chinese citizens reject this practice, and .ECO is committed to supporting them in ending this horrendous festival. Last year, thanks to overwhelming international pressure, Yulin authorities announced that they would not support the festival. The result was a subdued event and fewer dogs slaughtered than the previous two years. More recently, the authorities have claimed that the festival won\'t happen this year, but the dog meat traders will continue to stage the event with or without official endorsement. Join us now with the hundreds of thousands of advocates who have taken action against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Please sign our petition now to urge the Yulin authorities to intervene and end mass dog slaughter in the name of a festival. No one eats their best friends!

    The Pig Houing System Needs A Change

    The Pig Houing System Needs A Change
    Approximately 100 million pigs are raised and slaughtered in the U.S. every year. The type of housing system used throughout the U.S. to encourage this continuous grueling cycle of breeding sows is gestation crate to farrowing crate to gestation crate. It was developed to allow for economically efficient pork production, requiring less labor and feed than other housing arrangements. Scientific evidence suggests that intensive confinement causes physical disorders in sows. Unnatural flooring and lack of exercise leads to obesity and crippling leg disorders. Further, the air in pig factories is laden with dust, dander, and noxious gases, which are produced as the pigs urine and feces builds up inside the warehouses, causing respiratory difficulties and the spreading of infectious diseases amongst the pigs.Scientific evidence also suggests that intensive confinement causes psychological disorders in sows. The lack of environmental stimulation in the stall environment and the sows' inability to perform normal behaviors including rooting, foraging, nest-building, grazing, wallowing, or practicing social behaviors, leads to psychological disorders including chronic stress, depression, aggression, and abnormal and neurotic coping behaviors, such as bar biting and sham chewing (chewing nothing). Please sign this petition to help raise awareness that our housing system ideals need to be changed and there are other options available. Help make a difference.

    Stop the Torture!
    Citing the “abhorrent” mass slaughter of millions of dogs and cats for their meat each year, including stolen pets, the House of Representatives committee on Wednesday adopted a resolution urging nine Asian countries to outlaw the practice. \\r\\nThe resolution “has tremendous bipartisan support,” fueled by “serious animal cruelty and public health concerns.” Public health officials have raised concerns about rabies or poison in the meat. \\r\\n“In American and most western cultures, we cherish dogs and cats as more than just random animals. They serve as therapy animals, search and rescue assistants, police dogs that aid with drug and bomb searches, they serve at airport security, they are companions, and they are often cherished family members. The extreme cruelty that these animals suffer is abhorrent and we shouldn’t turn a blind eye to these practices.” \\r\\nThe resolution, highlights the annual Lychee and Dog Meat Festival in Yulin — a perennial target for animal rights activists. In 2016, a petition calling on that Chinese city’s government to end the event attracted 11 million signatures. That same year, Hollywood stars including Matt Damon, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara condemned the festival. See video(Warning! Graphic!!!) \\r\\nHumane Society International and others animal protection groups put the number of dogs killed in Asia for meat every year at roughly 30 million. Rep. Titus said at the hearing that 10 million cats suffer the same fate. \\r\\nThe resolution says that “a considerable number of the dogs and cats in the dog and cat meat trade are stolen pets still wearing collars when they reach the slaughterhouses.” It also declares that eating dog or cat meat “is not part of mainstream Asian culinary practice,” pointing to a June 2016 poll by a Chinese animal welfare group that found 69.5 percent of Chinese respondents had never consumed it. \\r\\nThe measure calls on the governments of the countries listed to enforce laws banning dog or cat meat trade and to curb sales of “leather or fur byproducts” from that activity. It also calls on executive branch officials to raise the issue in talks with their foreign counterparts

    Ban the Taiji Dolphin Massacre

    Ban the Taiji Dolphin Massacre
    About half of the dolphins caught in Taiji were exported to China and other countries despite global criticism of the hunting technique to catch them. Live Dolphins fetch about $10,000 each to be caged in marine zoos. The rest are consumed as food. The method of catching the dolphins has been heavily criticized globally as inhumane and cruel by the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) recently forced Japan\'s zoos and aquariums to stop using dolphins caught by the method. Japan\'s zoos and aquariums voted to stop using dolphins caught at Taiji. Moreover, campaigners claim there is insufficient demand in Japan for the meat from dolphins butchered at Taiji and that the high prices of live animals sold to aquariums and dolphin shows is the only thing that sustains the hunt. Dolphins have been shown to be intelligent animals - they deserve so much better than what they are suffering in Taiji. Will you join US in urging the Japanese Government to not only ban the export of live dolphins but to end the inhumane Taiji hunt?

    Florida Panthers are under Attack from United States Government
    It is estimated that there are fewer than 200 Florida panthers left in the world — and they are gravely threatened by booming residential development and the expansion of oil and gas operations in the Big Cypress National Preserve, their home in the Florida Everglades.\\r\\nNow the Trump administration could strip them of Endangered Species Act protections — their last defense against extinction. Tell the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to keep Florida panthers protected and help bring them back from the brink of extinction.\\r\\nIt is not too late ~ Please sign now...\\r\\n

    Help Raise Awareness For Chicken Living Conditions
    Virtually all chickens raised for their flesh (or “broiler chickens” as they are referred to by the meat industry), spend their lives crammed into massive, windowless sheds that typically hold as many as 40,000 birds each. The intense confinement and extreme crowding on factory farms also results in unimaginable filth and disease. Please sign this petition to increase awareness about these deplorable conditions we force these animals to endure.
