August 26th is Happy National Dogs Day 🙂 I hope you spoil your doggie siblings today!
These are pictures of the ones that have passed away already. All were absolute sweethearts in their own way. Some naughty, some feisty, some adorable, but all absolutely and completely loving to the core. Love them all very much!
I will post our new dogs soon.

Famous American boxing champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley is trying to raise money to fight against dog fighting. His motto on this subject is: “I choose to fight, dogs DON’T. Dogfighting is for cowards. Don’t do it.” I love this, another here for protecting animals and animal rights!
He is fighting Ricardo Mayorga in Los Angeles on August 29, 2015. He has an auction to which the proceeds will go towards the fight for dogs rights, protection against dogfighting. Place bids on 2 VIP tickets to this fight and meet & greet with Sugar Shane himself at Charitybuzz (the current high bid is $850)
Take action now and please sign the petition to help the fight against dogfighting.
If we ignore, does that mean it does not happen? This barbaric Yulin Dog/cat Meat Festival is coming VERY soon in Yulin province of China.
Remember, they are not just eaten, they are tortured, skinned and boiled alive! We have to stop this disgusting cruel act happening in our world.
It is 2015 and we still have barbaric acts, and even FESTIVALS happening in this world. Such as the Yulin dog & cat meat festival in Yulin. According to many top news reports these dogs are not only eaten, but tortured, electrocuted and skinned alive!
Here is a quote from Wiki page, gathered from various news reports from The Guardian, CNN, Pandaguide and NewRepublic: “Yulin Summer Solstice Dog Meat Festival where in 2013 over 10,000 dogs were consumed. Many of the dogs are electrocuted, burned and skinned while alive and conscious.”
Have you had enough yet? Please BEWARE when seeing these Youtube videos, they are VERY VERY disturbing 🙁 (But, we cannot ignore these things forever! Lets fight back!)
One of the many things we can do is sign the petition at Change.org petitioning the Yulin Governor Chu Wen to stop this festival in GuangXi China.
Thank you to certain projects and organizations like the Duo Duo Project, whos main purpose is to end animal cruelty, especially events like the dog meat festivals.

Animal Ideology just donated now (june 15) a small amount of $. Remember everyone, each penny counts, towards the full battle against this horrendous, painful and torturous animal holocaust.
The Animal Rights National Conference is being held in Alexandria, Virginia (near to Washington, D.C.), on July 30 – August 2, 2015. Take a look at the converence website here: http://arconference.org
The expo is set to have 100 speakers from 60 different animal rights and animal protection organizations, including PETA, Farm Sanctuary, The Humane League, Mercy For Animals, SAEN, Compassion Over Killing, and many more. There will also be 100 sessions on animal advocacy, organizing, tactics and also confronting certain animal-related protection and environment issues.
I would love to start attending conferences and seminars at big animal rights expo’s like these. Just get more of an insight on what is going on with each animal rights organization, what they are doing to help, how they allocate their funds (so we/I can choose which ones to donate to, or not), and to possibly learn better ways on how to educate other people, or convince others to care about the animals in our world. And as Jenny Brown (founder of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary) puts it, “Animals are with us, not FOR us“.
Anyone be an animal rights activist, even if you are a meat eater. We all need to stand up for animal rights, for the ethical treatment of animals, no matter if it’s pets, strays, or animals that people eat!
If you are in the area, please visit the conference and send us details, pictures, info, I would love to hear about it.
