The xmas tree is up! The bed is being made for the boarding dogs

I am extremely grateful to say that my first official job is with the ECO DOG WASH AND CARE LA.  Eco dog is green certified business and uses only natural, Vegan, eco friendly, biodegradable and cruelty free products with a range  from aloe vera and avocado infused simply bath spray  to  peppermint, cedar, geranium & lemongrass to argan oil, coconut-derived cleanser, jojoba, lavender and myrrh in their Simply Clean Shampoo. All of eco dogs products not only make your dog smell good using only natural ingredients but the formulas made also to naturally repel fleas & ticks.

 

IMG_1154Before i started working at eco dog i had been taking both my dogs (medium sized yellow lab and small tibetan terrier) for either a self wash or groom for years! Their prices are wonderful! Did i mention that its only $32 for a full day of cage free care! where the dogs play all day with each other and staff. When the dogs are boarding (staying over night) they are with a staff member at all times, get fed a natural healthy vegan dinner with no artificial flavor or colors (Im telling ya! the pups at eco dog eat healthier than me! ) and sleep in huge human beds with conforters and pillows.

I absolutley reccomend eco dog to anyone with a doggy! Whether it be big or small they are all accepted and treated with immense care and respect. Eco dog takes in dogs that were found on the street too with no home, abused and broken yet whenever i come in for work those dogs are filled with joy and love for the care that the dogs revieve is outstanding, i had never even heard of a dog care or wash that takes care of them as much as eco dog does.IMG_1153

Eco Dog Wash started in 2010 by Owner Karen

“I started this business because I love dogs and know that other dog lovers want eco-smart, eco-friendly options for self-wash, grooming, daycare & boarding services right here in our neighborhood.

I’ve lived here for over 20 years and am deeply committed to this community and doing what I can to support ecologically sound practices. In every aspect of the store operations we strive to be as clean and green as possible.”

Let’s stop the slaughtering of poor marine animals before there’s none left to save

By:

Genesis Acevedo New York, NY

 

The issue that is being address in this petition is the mass slaughtering of dolphins and small whales in the cove of Japan (Taiji) during hunting season. These animals are chased down into the harbor for fishermen can slaughter or capture these poor animals. If they do not slaughter these dolphins in that moment then they starve them until they are ready to be killed. In addition, if they do not kill them at all then the result is just capturing them in order to sell them off to marine parks and make a profit. Fishermen focus on selecting dolphins and selling them into captivity. About 111 dolphins are held captive and dead/released dolphins do not count as part of the Japan Fisheries Agency Quotas. In result, these innocent marine animals are not being protected under these poor regulations. Its very important because these poor animals are suffering in the hands of selfish people.
They do not deserve any type of abuse for our entertainment nor to make a profit. I am petitioning the Japanese government more specially the cove in Taij where the dolphin slaughter takes place and the Fisheries Agency. It is wrong to slaughter these poor animals for our own selfish reasons. They just use these poor animals for profit and to sell into multiple marine parks in Japan and overseas. They chase them down into the cove and brutally slaughter these animals for their own selfish gain. Not only are they hurting these animals but they are also destroying our environment by eliminating the amount of marine animals in the ocean by a mass margin.
I am specifically asking the Japanese government and the Fisheries Agency to set more quotas and regulations in order to stop the slaughtering and selling of these marine animals. Their quotas are not being regulated nor are they protecting these poor innocent animals. Their quotas is just a big joke when it comes to the survival and protection for these many small whales and dolphins. I am asking them to ban and stop seasonal hunting completely. Furthermore, I am asking them to stop using these animals for profit and just let them live their lives in peace. #Leavethedolphinsalone #nomorebloodocean #letthedolphinslive #survival
This petition will be delivered to:
  • Japan Fisheries Agency
  • japanese government

Gas chambers have no place in our animal shelters

Gas chambers have no place in our animal shelters.

By: Caitlin Halliday Kaysville, UT

Nobody wants to put a pet to sleep. The process is heartbreaking, even in the best and most loving of circumstances. At least we can take solace in how fast and peaceful euthanasia by injection (EBI) can be. If injected with the proper drugs, an animal will lose consciousness within 3-5 seconds. This is why the vast majority of shelters use EBI. It is by far the most humane way to end an animal’s life.

But Utah is one of just seven states that continue to use gas chambers for this purpose, for inexplicable reasons.Unlike with EBI, animals euthanized by gas chamber can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to die, and they are often still conscious, terrified and distressed. Multiple animals are often placed in these metal boxes at once, and they strike at each other out of fear.

The Humane Society of the U.S. and every other major animal welfare group have condemned the use of these gas chambers, calling them cruel, inhumane, torturous, and archaic. There are fewer than three dozen U.S. shelters still employing them, and Utah has seven of them. Sadly, a bill that would have banned them just failed in the Utah House of Representatives.

We must reach out to our representatives and let them know that we will not stand for inhumane animal euthanasia. Cruel gas chambers have no place in our state’s shelters, and we must demand that they shut them down now.

EBI is as cost-effective, if not more so, than the gas chamber, so the financial argument that some representatives made holds no water. Some pointed to worker safety as a reason to keep using gas chambers — no cases have ever been reported of a shelter worker dying due to an accidental needle stick with EBI; however, there have been human injuries, deaths and explosions due to gas chamber use.

The lawmakers who argued against this bill did not do their homework. There is no reason to continue the use of this horrifying equipment, and we owe it to Utah’s pets to continue to fight on their behalf.

All animals deserve the kindness and dignity of EBI in their last moments of life. Please sign this petition telling the Utah representatives responsible for the failure of this bill that they did not represent the people with their vote.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Utah State House
  • Utah State Senate

FACTORY FARMING. WHAT IS IT?? (from my petition)

Hey everyone. Please take a quick look and sign my petition to BAN FACTORY FARMING IN CALIFORNIA

 CK4bsy1UsAAgGhL

 

https://www.change.org/p/diane-feinstein-ban-factory-farming-in-california

Warning: graphic pictures below of these poor helpless animals:(  . credit from google imgs.

If you didn’t know factory farming is the confinement of animals in tight rooms, boxes, metal crates, wire cages the list can go on. They get barely any water and fake/processed antibiotic food. Then they are given no space so they can’t sit or lie down so these poor pigs and cows are standing constantly crammed next to each other with sharp metal wire right up next to them too. It also hurts the environment and causes pollution.

With minimal to no access to air These helpless animals are also fed antibiotics that makes them produce more milk/eggs and changes the way their body functions that some chickens die from being overgrown. Then they get transported to a slaughterhouse without food or water and get dragged/ have their throats slit while still alive and conscious. This is just one version of what goes on behind those walls and i can’t live happily knowing that these animals NEED our help.imgres

PLEASE sign this it will change our state and we would influence other states to do the same.  These Animals should not have to deal with this stand with me to make a difference, we will fight this and to whomever signs this YOU may be the reason why farm factory will be banned! dairy-farm

Before you drink that glass of milk think of the torture that mother cow had to go through its baby didnt even get its own mommys breast milk. They were teared apart from each other the mothers are FORCED into giving birth. Its basically raping cows. HORRIBLE.

Farm factoring isn’t even considered an issue on the white houses website, lets change this. More people need to be aware and know whe re theirmeat is coming from and how. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

If you are planning on looking at  pictures of factory farming  please be aware it is very graphic, sad and sickening. This is the only one i could find that is some what appropriate  yet it is still miserable and depressing.
