Chilling scene as ivory is being crushed. This ton of ivory represents hundreds of poached elephants. One is slaughtered every 15 mins. Read about why ivory crushes are important: IFAW has a really great blog post about the reasoning behind ivory crushes: #ivorycrush

Bless each of you for all you do. I just called my State (MA) Rep's office and left word for Peter Kocot that I do not and will not support H 3212 and strongly support H 1155 to protect pets. I rec'...d this notice that pet protection bill H 1155 may be in jeopardy from MSPCA this morning on my email. Thanks for keeping me (us) informed. Charlotte Dwyer, Northampton, MA 01060. See More

#Iamtiger #justicefortiger #BanDeclawing please... Now is the time to shine your membership. American veterinarians are asking our input regarding recent animal abuse. Declawing is a felony in many ...countries yet the declaw industry if hopping here in the usa. A very simple request from you to your membership to write can change the tide. A profession that claims to support the well being of a species and amputates bones for no reason that benefits the victim. You know the facts... please activate your membership! See More

The animal rights movement is a very vocal minority and their ideology is based on opinions and emotion not facts and science. Performing animals in loving human care enjoy performing. It is a valuabl...e part of their enrichment and is mentally and physically stimulating. Animals in human care outlive their wild counterparts and serve as ambassadors for threatened and endangered species. To pass an outright ban is a grave injustice to these animals and their responsible animal professionals that dedicate their lives to their care. Encounters inspire caring and conservation. You have just made a bad decision for your entire community. It is your loss Pittsfield, Massachusetts. See More

The MSPCA Animal Action Team has helped the Provincetown (MA) Animal Welfare Committee over the years by providing information to help the Committee write animal welfare articles for our town meetings... that were presented on the floor and approved overwhelmingly by Provincetown voters and are today town-by laws. For instance, the MSPCA Animal Action Team was an important resource for our 'animals left unattended in motor vehicles' article, an 'anti-tethering' article, and a 'safe transportation of animals' article. These three articles were presented at out town meetings, were approved by a majority of voters and today are town-by laws. See More

MSPCA failed utterly in its accepted charge to follow up on the Medeiros tenant farm (Westport, MA) after the "farm's" first bust in 2010. (800 abused and starving animals)

MSPCA and the MDAR Divisio...n of Animal Health were given (and accepted) the duty of following up on the Medeiros property at the state level. Neither entity did its job. As a result, six years and thousands of animal lives later, 1400 animals were "discovered" at the site. The animals (all kinds from livestock to dogs to exotic birds) were found in deplorable conditions. Hundreds had to be euthanized on the spot.

Obviously, the Town of Westport bares the greatest responsibility for its ineptitude and blatant disregard. But the MSPCA bares responsibility, too. Thanks for nothing, MSPCA. I contribute to many animal welfare organizations, but you will never be one of them!

how about we take the opportunity with this law they are trying to start with the ma div. of animal health that may severely damage animal fostering to encourage them to direct their energies to endin...g the companion animal overpopulation by cracking down & ENDING backyard breeding, pet sales at stores, & providing better affordable($100 isn't exactly affordable to a lot of people but better than the $300 vets charge - not good affordable spay neuter programs). true - foster animals must be assured a save environment - but these proposals don't do much more than assure more fosters won't be accepted. this is an opportunity to encourage them (again) to go after the conditions of the backyard breeders to shut them down rather than the fosters for animals that should not have even been born.

Please contact your state representative to ask him or her to sign on to House budget amendment #954.

This budget amendment, filed by State Representative Lou Kafka, would allocate $100,000 to the Massachusetts Animal Fund to ensure Massachusetts animals receive needed services such as vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery.

There is a waitlist of hundreds of animals across all counties, and many animals are going unserved, lacking critical health services.


Budget debate begins on Monday the 23rd, so time is of the essence.

Please see the list in the comments to see if your state representative has signed on. If not and you do not know who he or she is, visit or check out Facebook's town hall feature on the left nav bar.
