After public outcry in response to Friends of Animals' September 14th action alert urging the public to demand that the Aquarium des ÃŽles in Quebec, Canada, stop its senseless plan to slaughter two seal pups, Zak and Mika, whom they'd captured last spring, the Aquarium has released a statement today.

Vancouver Video Game Company Glorifies Illegal Cockfighting

Sleeping Dogs, a violent video game from Vancouver-based United Front Games features an "Achievement" in the game whereby the player bets on a cockfight.

Cockfighting is illegal in Canada and the US, and it's a vile, demoralizing gambling spectacle outlawed in many other countries.

NYS Alert: Call Your State Senator

Thanks to Your Calls, the NYS Assembly Passed A3431D, Banning Devocalization, 95-2!!

But You Now Need to Fight Harder Than Ever. Lobbies That Profit From This Cruelty Have Mobilized to Kill Senate Bill S6167C Because BOTH Bills Must Pass As Written by June 21 to Put an Enforceable Devocalization Ban on the Books in New York State.

Call Your NYS Assemblymember Immediately

Please act and get the word out today. Make the calls.  The Proposed NYS Devocalization Ban is Now On The Verge of a Vote By the Full Assembly. Call Your Assemblymember Immediately To Ensure It Gets One -- And Passes AS WRITTEN. If Amended, It Could Enable This Cruel Mutilation! Stella Didn't Deserve This. No Animal Does. Thanks to your calls, A3431D, prohibiting devocalization of dogs and cats, is just a step away from a vote by the full Assembly.

Please call your Senators today to OPPOSE the Rotten Egg Bill (S. 3239)

Dear Friends,

Millions of laying hens need your help right now. The egg industry is pushing federal legislation that would keep hens suffering in cages - and would outlaw the banning of egg factory cages nationwide.

We need your help today to ensure this does not happen.

A critical Senate vote could be held at any moment to decide whether Senator Dianne Feinstein's Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments (S. 3239) will be inserted into this year's Farm Bill. If allowed, this Rotten Egg Bill would be one dangerous step closer to becoming law.
