Australia: Excellent News – Passion gets Animals Represented in NSW Parliament.


Passion gets Animals Represented in NSW Parliament

Despite a tiny budget, but with of plenty of passion, the Animal Justice Party won its first parliamentary seat by gaining the last seat in the Legislative Council election in New South Wales today. At the preference distribution count today the AJP ended up an easy winner for the final seat ahead of the No Land Tax Party and the Liberal Party.

This is a historic result; as Party President and Founder Professor Steve Garlick said: “This is the first time in Australia that animals will be represented at a parliamentary level. We know that more than 80 percent of all decisions made in Australian parliaments impact on the lives of animals and its about time they had a voice representing their interests”.

Elected AJP candidate Mark Pearson will take up his position in the NSW upper house in July and will have much to say about how the lives of farm, domestic and wild animals in NSW can be improved.  Being the Executive Director of NSW Animal Liberation, Mark comes to this parliamentary role with considerable commitment and knowledge about how to stop animal cruelty.

Apart from supporting Mark in his new role in the Parliament of NSW, the Party will now set its sights on a number of elections in 2016 where it hopes to emulate its success and where it will target government supported extreme animal brutality.

I would like to thank all of you who supported us and voted for animals.

You gave a voice to the voiceless – thank you :))

– for all animals


SAV Comment – We are sure Mark will be a big voice speaking out against the live export trade from Australia – 

First time for animals in Parliament; but certainly not the last.  Hopefully this is just the beginning.  Congratulations !!

Dear Mark

we know you are fighting for animals everyday and we want you to know that thanks to your efforts things ARE changing for animals around the world.

One of the places where things are moving forward is in China.

This is how you Mark are helping it happen.

  1. You are supporting groundbreaking investigations!

 Your support has helped Animal Equality investigators carry out three investigations. Two of them exposed the brutality behind the Chinese dog and cat meat industry, and the third one exposed the cruel fur trade.

All the investigations reached international coverage appearing in media such as CNN, Sky News, Daily Mail or El Mundo. The footage has touched the heart of millions of people. They are joining you to help end the abuse.

  1. You are helping us tell THEIR stories

Vita was terrified that day of April. She was at a dog slaughterhouse in Zhanjiang… she knew that it would soon be her turn. Her life would soon be over.

Vita suddenly saw a stranger enter the dark room of the slaughterhouse with a camera. She desperately tried to call his attention.

She must have known… The investigator saw her and convinced the slaughterhouse worker to give him Vita. Today she lives with a loving and caring family.

You have done so much for Vita! You shared her story with your family and friends. Thanks to that and your donations Vita is now an ambassador of all the animals brutally abused by the dog meat industry.

  1. You have spoken

With your signature you have raised your voice with over 400,000 people, and firmly opposed the dog and cat meat trade.

Please stay tuned Mark. In the next months we will be bringing these signatures to Chinese embassies around the world.

4. And finally: You are helping end the massacre

Thanks to the investigations you supported, your signature, and the fact that we worked hand in hand with Chinese activists, 33 markets that sold dogs and cats and a slaughterhouse were closed. 

So today I am writing to say: THANK YOU Mark!

We have a detailed plan to continue working in China and you are a key part of this plan. Soon you’ll receive news on how you can help.

Hope for animals in China is in sight. And you are so much a part of this change. You are their hero. You are our hero.

Thank you,

Sharon Nunez

Serbia: Lina’s Animal Rescue. Help Stop 16 Dogs From Having To Be Returned To The Streets.


Serbian  Flag

Lina 16 dogs

Lina’s Animal Rescue is organisation for animal welfare from Serbia.

 We have 20 dogs in small private unfinished shelter, 20 dogs in 2 boarding kennels and 14 kitties in one rescuers home.

Funds are desperately needed to pay the boarding kennel fees. We have debt for March for 16 dogs and now unpaid April for 16 dogs.

We are desperate,  those dogs can not go again on the street. The life of street dogs everywhere is difficult, but here in Serbia the dog catchers kill them rather than rescue them.

Finding homes is very difficult as the culture in Serbia is not to adopt dogs, but rather buy a puppy then turn it out in the streets later when it is grown.  Those dogs urgent need help.

Each dog’s boarding fees are 60€ per month ( 40 boarding kennel + 20 food ) . With 20 dogs currently in boarding facilities, the debt is too great to even think about renovating our shelter.

They depend only on help from good people.

Please share our story and  donate, this is URGENT APPEAL !

Thank you !
