“Factory farming is responsible for most of the air, water, and land pollution—that disproportionately affects our poor communities as well. So, we get to make decisions three times a day, what we do with our planet, and you can make a difference by even once a day or once a week choosing not to eat animals or animal products.” – Natalie Portman

  • We addressed all local autonomy units, suggesting that they publicize and distribute fliers regarding new regulations for dog guardians and their duties, commitments and responsibilities.

Besides condemning those cruel murders, we believe that the person responsible should be prosecuted and punished with imprisonment as well as a lifelong prohibition from maintaining custody over animals. Testing should be prescribed as a necessary condition for gaining the rights to become an animal’s guardian.
