Don’t Let Tobacco Companies Conduct Cruel Animal Experiments Sign Here!
Stop Killing animals!
Please help! Precious animals are suffering and dyeing every day because of human neglect and torture. You can help just by sharing this post and pages from this site to help more organizations and rescue shelters. I have just recently added pages to A Dogs Plea ,and will continue to do so, to help the wonderful people out there that put themselves out on a limb to save all animals. These are people who are not out there to profit. That’s what makes them so special. Far too often they have to pay out of pocket expenses that exceed even the many donations and fund raising events. So again, PLEASE HELP. Do this for the love of dogs today, and all of God’s creatures♥ Thank You for your support♥

Please take a moment to read about the recent experiments exposed by PETA. If you’re as outraged as we are about this heartbreaking abuse, please donate today so your gift can be DOUBLED to help stop barbaric testing on animals. Time is running out to have your gift matched, so please don’t hesitate—donate today to help save animals from abuse in cruel experiments!
Dear Friend,What experimenters did to Double Trouble is heartbreaking.This beautiful tabby cat endured horrific torment for months in cruel and useless “sound localization” experiments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW)—deadly experiments that have been supported by more than $3 million in tax dollars.Will you help PETA end animal tests like these by taking the Global “Stop Animal Tests” Challenge right now? Your secure gift online today will be matched—dollar for dollar—by a group of generous PETA donors toward our online goal of $250,000 but only if you give before October 31. If we meet this ambitious goal, it will mean an urgently needed $500,000 to help shut down experiments like the one that killed Double Trouble.
It took more than three years and a successful PETA lawsuit before UW was compelled to release images from its deadly experiments on cats. Now, we can show you what the university tried so very hard to hide. According to records obtained by PETA, Double Trouble had to endure invasive surgeries during which she had steel coils implanted in her eyes, a stainless-steel post screwed to her skull, and electrodes inserted into her brain. In a subsequent surgery, this gentle orange cat was deafened by a toxic substance applied to her ears, and electrical implants were placed deep inside both ears. Please try to imagine the horror and fear that she endured—all the while “living” in a stainless-steel cage, alone at night and tormented by experimenters during the day. During surgery, Double Trouble’s anesthesia is reported to have worn off, likely leaving her to experience pain as experimenters cut into her head and skull. It is too horrible to contemplate, but we must because we need to stop such torture.
As time went on, Double Trouble’s condition worsened. Her face became partially paralyzed, and her head wound would not heal for more than three months after her last surgery. An antibiotic-resistant infection raged in her wound for almost two months before UW experimenters killed her, beheaded her (and we have pictures of that, too, which we will spare you), and cut apart her brain.
Double Trouble is just one of so very many sensitive animals who are cut, burned, poisoned, and subjected to even worse torment in deadly experiments each year. If you donate during PETA’s Global “Stop Animal Tests” Challenge right now, your gift made before the October 31 deadline will be matched, going twice as far toward combating the horrific suffering of animals like her in cruel experiments.
The useless experiments that led to Double Trouble’s torment are conducted on as many as 30 cats each year by UW alone and, according to the school’s very own records, are needed to “keep up a productive publication record that ensures our constant funding.” In other words, to publish papers in order to keep public funds coming in. That’s their game. There are no peer-reviewed papers in any scientific journals that have resulted from the months of suffering that she endured; indeed, even experimenters themselves have acknowledged that there was a problem with her surgery.
Since our first landmark undercover exposé of laboratory abuse more than 30 years ago, PETA has won groundbreaking victories that have stopped deadly animal tests in their tracks and saved millions of animals from suffering at the hands of experimenters. At this very moment, we’re pressuring federal officials to investigate Double Trouble’s case and cut off funding for these cruel and completely worthless experiments.
Your generous gift today during the Global “Stop Animal Tests” Challenge will be matched, bringing us closer to our $250,000 online goal and going twice as far toward ending horrific tests like those at UW.
Thank you for your compassion for all animals, particularly those in laboratories who right now need our help.

I have just spent an entire morning reaching out and pleading to an entire nation to “please stop killing our most precious companions” Our rescue and adoption shelters all over the world are full to the max with homeless animals to say the least. Many of them are sick, have been abused, and were left to die.
While all shelters are not the same, many of them are deserving of our help and donations. These are the people who love and care for these poor animals and provide a home and or foster home and the care that they need. Many times spending their own money to give them the attention and medical needs they so deserve?
I have found some very reputable rescue and adoption shelters in which I both recommend and support. You can find them here and on my face book.
What happens though when these good shelters are full to the max? (In which many are).
Not all dogs are fortunate enough to be turned over to a rescue, adopt, or a no kill shelter. Even if they are, these shelters are full to the max and have no alternative but to direct them else where. Many are abandoned and left to die, or given up to a kill shelter.
