PETITION: Seattle Mayor Ed Murray: Send the Woodland Park Zoo Elephants, Chai and Bamboo, to a sanctuary.
When we watch elephants in zoos, we aren’t watching them be elephants. We are watching them suffer. The Woodland Park Zoo (WPZ) in Seattle has decided to close it’s elephant exhibit.

Adopting Pure Breds
Pound Rescue does not agree to not adopt these purebreds from a rescue group. It is not their fault to be bred into cripples and to then be euthanized, they should not be punished for it but have the chance live a life as good as possible for them. Those who adopt from a rescue group should be motivated by compassion, not looks. If not then who could become ambassadors for these poor dogs, in the dog park, in their neighbourhood, to speak out against such breeding. Who would it be?
A Dog Crate Is a Cage Is a Prison
What if, at your local pet-supply store, you could purchase a dog-training tool that would make your dog weaker, klutzier, and less intelligent? And what if this tool increased your dog’s frustration and fearfulness about the world and made him or her less likely to bond with you? Would you buy it? Of course not! Yet, millions of these “tools” are sold every year to unsuspecting American dog lovers who want the absolute best for their dogs. The tool is a “crate,” which is just a euphemism for a cage. In fact, dog crates are substantially smaller than the cages that are used to house dogs in laboratories.
