Find Criminals Who Stuck Puppies to Ground With Hot Tar

Take Action 3

Petition link –  https://animalpetitions.org/133396/justice-for-puppies-found-stuck-to-ground-and-covered-in-tar/?utm_source=Animal+Petitions&utm_campaign=143cd11def-388AP7_26_2016&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_5c8ef52732-143cd11def-79739337


Target: Bogdan Despescu, General Inspector of the Romanian National Police

Goal: Find and severely punish whoever is responsible for covering dogs in hot tar.

Four puppies were found covered in hot tar. The dogs were said to be in critical condition and were taken to a veterinarian for treatment. Images, released through the media, show the poor dogs lying helplessly on the ground as the hot sun beats down on them.

Animal activists believe this is a case of sick animal torture because it is the second time puppies have been found covered in tar. In the first case, the veterinarian said that one of the puppies had tar inside of his nose, mouth, and eyes.

Please add your signature to this petition demanding that the authorities use all resources necessary to find the monster, or monsters, responsible for torturing these puppy dogs and bring them to justice.


Dear Mr. Despescu,

Four puppies were found covered in hot tar and stuck to the ground. This is the second time this has occurred, so it’s clear that some demented individual is going around and senselessly torturing innocent animals.

The evil acts being committed against innocent animals in your area must stop. We demand that you do everything in your power to find whoever is tormenting these dogs and ensure that they receive the most severe penalty possible.

Turtle News.

Mark –

Bad news for the Kemp’s ridley.

The common-sense proposal to expand the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary is being opposed by both the fishing industry and oil and gas companies.

Sea turtles have been under constant threat in the Gulf of Mexico in recent years. They need a break.

Can you make a tax-deductible donation today so I can fight to expand the sanctuary?

Shouldn’t a small piece of the oceans be set aside for sea turtles, dolphins, and whales?

If we can raise $5,000 by this Friday, I can be a strong voice for the sea turtles.


Joanie Steinhaus, Director, Gulf Coast
Turtle Island Restoration Network

PS – Over recent years, the numbers of nesting Kemp’s ridley sea turtles have dangerously dropped. Please click this secure link to make a gift today so we can protect these gentle heart-shaped animals.

Act Now.

Slaughterhouse petition

Yes, often it is the question – are you getting the message across ?.  But that is the way you are and you make every effort to promote whatever it is that you believe in. For animals in factory systems it is still the ‘Eternal Treblinka’ – but now with modern day technology we have the freedom to expose the wrongdoings immediately and to ask supporters to act.  That is what we will do – the abusers can hide for only so long !  The suffering that was hidden in the dim and distant past is now being exposed in its full gore – it is now up to people to change it for the better – now, immediately, forever !



Once you’ve transform the 7 billion corpse-eater to vegan,
once you’ve converted all slaughterhouses and farms to botanical gardens,
once you’ve freed all laboratory and fur animals out of their cages,
write us again, and tell us how you did it.

Until then, we will not wait.
We will continue with our small steps, and save every day so many animals that we can save.
We also dream about the day of total liberation, but for the animals the “every-day-Liberation” is more useful than waiting for the Messiah.

Because only by the calendar we are in the 21st century.
For the animals is still the Middle Ages.
