Petition: Create a new independent welfare body to protect racehorses from abuse and death

Please consider signing this petition to Parliament calling for an independent welfare body to protect racehorses from abuse and death.

The British Horseracing Authority is responsible for race horse welfare. But around 200 horses die each year due to racing in Britain. We urge the government to set up an independent regulatory body, with horse welfare as its only interest, which will take meaningful action to stop horses dying.

Petition: ask supermarkets to mark it vegan

Copied from Animal Aid’s Mark It Vegan petition:

Mark It Vegan

Ask supermarkets to Mark It Vegan!

There are now more than half a million vegans in the UK, and the range and quality of vegan food has never been better. Many major food companies and restaurant chains have responded to the rising popularity of veganism by clearly labelling cruelty-free options, but the majority of supermarkets have been slow to respond.

Please sign the Mark It Vegan petition to call on every supermarket in the UK that does not already do so to clearly label all of its own-brand vegan products within the next 12 months.

 

Make Britain fur free! #FurFreeBritain!

A petition from the Humane Society:

Join us in calling for a #FurFreeBritain!

Humane Society logoThe government ordered the last UK fur farm to close its doors back in 2003, but we’re now importing fur cruelty from overseas. The unnecessary suffering of animals for fur fashion is deplorable, whether the animal involved is a cat, a dog or a seal, whose fur is already banned from UK trade by EU regulations, or a coyote, a fox or a raccoon dog, whose fur is currently still allowed.

Opinion polls show continually high levels of public disapproval of fur, regardless of species – more than 80% believe that it’s unacceptable to buy and sell animal fur in this country. Brexit gives us an excellent opportunity to close our borders to the cruel, unnecessary, outdated fur trade, and lead the way as the world’s first fur-free nation!

Please sign our petition calling on government not only to retain a UK import ban on cat, dog and seal fur during Brexit negotiations, but also to extend that ban to cover all animals killed for their fur.

Petition: University of Sheffield – Reduce Your Testing on Animals

Quoting:

Freedom of Information requests discovered that the University of Sheffield killed 82,512 animals in tests during the 2015/16 academic year – an average of 226 animals killed each day.

In 2014/15, 67,236 animals were used and killed for testing purposes, with this figure going up 22.7% during 2015/16. The University should be cutting down not increasing the number of animals it uses in experiments!

With almost 90% of drugs that pass animal tests failing human trials, these animals are undergoing immense suffering for very limited benefit, undermining public support, social progression and current medicinal advancements.

We are requesting for the University to move away from testing on animals such as pigs, rabbits, mice, rats, gerbils and fish and to cruelty-free testing methods such as digital dissection software and human simulators.
