————————————————–

Original event invitation starts here:

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Lennox is a dog that was wrongfully seized and who has been sentenced to death after a 2 year battle to save him. All attempts to return Lennox to his family have failed. There are numerous petitions, letter writing campaigns and phone-in campaigns. It’s time to take it to the streets in support of the Save Lennox campaign.

This event is being organized by the Oreo’s Law Task Force, a project of No Kill New York. We chose to launch the event from the Oreo page because we hope that Oreo’s spirit and memory will shine on our endeavor. It is also our wish to let the people who hold Lennox’s life in their hands that the animal advocacy community never forgets an injustice. The campaign to honor Oreo’s memory started in 2009 and is still going strong today.

On Monday, July 9, 2012 @ 10:00 am we will gather at the British Consulate Office in New York City. When the Consulate closes at 12:00 Noon, we will move the protest to the Irish Consulate Office and continue there.

Nothing breaks my heart more than injured animals. I came across this article when I was on Twitter and I had to post it on The Green Beagle in hopes that people will help this shelter and donate.

Animals Killed in WV Shelter Fire
HARRISVILLE, W.Va.

More than 50 cats, small dogs and puppies have died in a fire that destroyed one of the Ritchie County Humane Society’s buildings.
Humane society President Kitty Ray says the fire broke out early Wednesday morning in one of two buildings used as shelters. Larger dogs housed in the other building weren’t injured.
Ray says the fire also destroyed pet food, office supplies, equipment and records stored in the building. A cause hasn’t been determined.
Ray says animal rescue groups around the country have donated money and supplies.
Donations can be made through the organization’s Website or mailed to the Ritchie County Humane Society, RR 1 Box 3, Harrisville, WV 26362.

Avalanche Study Will Bury Pigs in Snow to Watch Them Die

image_large170

I found this article on treehugger.com and I hope everybody reads it!!  Still scientists want to test on animals, why?  Even our smartest of smart people still cannot distinguish the difference between right and wrong or human and animal!! This goes to show no matter how much education someone may have they are still just as ignorant as the peasants they joke about at their cocktail parties!

Animal rights activists are up in arms about a proposed experiment which would try to better understand what factors may help people survive an avalanche–by burying pigs in snow to monitor their slow deaths. While researchers defend their study, asserting that it could help save lives, those in opposition say that the deaths would be nothing short of cruel and senseless.

The study hopes that by monitoring the buried pigs, researchers will have a better understanding the role of air pockets in surviving avalanche situations and avoiding brain damage from asphyxiation. Like in a drowning, many avalanche victims die from a lack of oxygen while waiting on rescue that is notoriously difficult.

Researchers have defended the study by claiming that the 29 pigs selected to participate would not suffer, and that they would be sedated prior to being covered in snow. Still, animal rights groups are crying foul, likening the planned deaths as animal cruelty.

The experiment, lead by Hermann Brugger and a team from Austria and Italy, was set to take place over the course of two weeks, but has been postponed due to the recent negative response from media and activists, according to Medical University of Innsbruck.

There’s no telling how long the pigs’ reprieve from their snowy execution will last, though Brugger is quick to point out that their days would be numbered anyways. In other words, if the avalanche won’t kill them, the slaughterhouse will.
