Ho Ho Ho ! – Christmas Greetings.



We call this time a quiet, silent, holy time.
Many think it is the celebration of love.
The best proof of this is, that God sent His Son to Earth to give love and peace to the people.

Although we speak of love during this time, we are doing something completely different.
With the animals.

The silent and holy night that we humans sing solemnly by candlelight, and accompany with animal corpses on our table, is for our fellow creatures another night, a night in hell, as well as every other night.

The piglet in the animal factory behind bars, lonely and injured, the dehorned cow on the chain that calls her newborn, the goose with the sick liver that can no longer stand, the chicken waiting for the transport, the furry animal in the cage suspecting his death …

As we Christians sing our Christmas carols and celebrate the feast of love, millions of our fellow creatures in the animal factories will fall victim to love, our love for human beings.

And while our children play the traditional game of ox and donkey, we will prepare the Christmas menu, the festive meal of love, and fill our belly with body parts of lamb, suckling pig, turkey, and whole.

We the liars, the Pharisees, the criminals of this world.

My best regards



USA: Trump and Congress just sold out the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.


Dear Mark,

They’ve done the unthinkable.

Congress just sold out the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge – and all the wildlife that depends on it – to pass tax reform.

The Trump administration and Congress’ ugly pursuit of profits at any cost is putting wildlife and wild places in serious jeopardy – and Alaska has become the rallying point for their anti-wildlife agenda.

Help us protect this incredible landscape and wildlife habitat. Take our Triple Match Challenge and your gift will be matched 2-for-1, up to a total of $150,000.

The message from this administration and Congress has been clear: they think that wildlife and wild places are worthless – and they will stop at nothing to pillage Alaska’s incredible landscapes.

Help us fight to save Alaska’s priceless wildlife and wild places from destruction.

Alaska is known as “The Last Frontier” for its unrivalled wildness and the diversity of animals that call it home. It is habitat for caribou, snowy owls, Arctic foxes, wolves, and all three species of North American bears – polar, brown and black bears. Nearly 200 hundred species of migratory birds make their way to Alaska each year from all over the world.

But if Congress and the Trump administration have their way, these creatures and so many others will be left out in the cold.

Defenders won’t let wildlife pay the price for unrelenting greed and the reckless pursuit of profits – and we know you won’t either.

Give today and your contribution will have triple the impact for wildlife in jeopardy.

Scotland: Breaking News – The First UK country to ban wild animal circuses!

SAV Comment

This will now be followed shortly by England -we can almost promise that.

First UK country to ban wild animal circuses!

Hello Mark.

I am so excited to be sending you this email!

I have just watched the Scottish parliament vote

on the bill to ban the use of wild animals in travelling circuses….

And I am delighted to say they voted for the animals!

Wild animal circuses will be banned in Scotland!

People like you, CAPS and other animal protection

organisations have been campaigning on this issue for decades.

It just goes to show why we should never give up, the animals

need these victories!

Here’s what you need to do now:

  1. Read more about this amazing victory here

  2. Pat yourself on the back for making this day possible

  3. Get yourself ready for the next steps to ban animal circuses in Wales!

The Welsh Government have been considering a ban too,

which CAPS and people like you have pushed hard for

in recent months. An announcement this week indicates

they may consider licensing instead – we cannot let this happen!

Watch this space for how you can help secure a second

UK ban for animals and please consider making a donation today.

I will now leave you to enjoy this fantastic news.

Thank you for all you do for animals!

Best wishes,

Nicola O’Brien
Campaigns Director

P.S. Another one down!

Thank you so much for your fantastic work for animals! It’s working 🙂



England: Animals Experiencing A Life Worth Living.

Frolicking in fields, dust bathing, nestling in straw, splashing about in water.

These may seem like simple things, but they can make all the difference to the wellbeing of a farm animal.
