Animal Abusers Will Now Be Registered Like Sex Offenders

Consider this a win for animals all over the country.

For every abused puppy, abandoned kitten, or medically tested bunny, this is a win. No question.

A new law is growing in popularity across the country, and it’s something everyone can agree on.

A number of United States jurisdictions have implemented an animal offenders registry, which will publicly reveal the names of known animal abusers in the area, similar to how sex offenders are registered.  

Currently, Tennessee is the only state to have an animal offenders registry, but other cities like New York and Cook County, Illinois have them at a local level.

Nicer Days

So how long will they be on the list? And what information will be in the registry?

Brokenhearted Vet Reveals What Pets Do in Final Moments Before Being Put Down

Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is never easy, especially when it becomes clear that they are in such pain and misery that it becomes more humane to put them down.

In fact, it’s such an emotional moment that many owners choose to not be in the room when it happens. They say their goodbyes and let the veterinarians take care of the rest.

A viral post by an anonymous veterinarian implores people to reconsider that decision, however, and the reason why is truly heart-wrenching.

“When you are a pet owner it is inevitable, the majority of the time, that your pet will die before you do. So if and when you have to you have to take your pet to the vet’s office for a humane pain-free ending I want you all to know something,” the post began.

“You have been the center of their world for THEIR ENTIRE LIVES!!!!”

The anonymous vet then continues to remind all of us that even if our pets are only alive for a small portion of our lives, they have loved us their entire lives.

“It is a crappy decision/day/time/event every time, there is no argument against that and it is devastating for us as humans to lose them,” the post continued, recognizing how emotionally draining the decision can be.

“But please I beg you DO NOT LEAVE THEM. Do not make them transition from life to death in a room of strangers in a place they don’t like.”

The next statement is one that will truly make your heart weep and want to hug your animals a little closer.

“The thing you people need to know that most of you don’t is that THEY SEARCH FOR YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE THEM BEHIND!!!!”

According to the vet, they frantically search each face in the room hoping to see a familiar one, looking for their beloved owners.

They don’t understand and they become afraid.

“Don’t be a coward because you think it is just too hard for YOU, imagine what they feel as you leave them in their most vulnerable time and people like me are left to try out best every time to to comfort them, make them less scared and try to explain why you just couldn’t stay,” the vet wrote.

The vet signed the post, “From a tired broken-hearted vet.”

The post quickly went viral, garnering over 111,000 shares since it was posted in August 2018. It’s message obviously striking a chord with the thousands who have read it.

Owners find their dog playing on a hill, the game he invented is genius – %

Winter is one of our favorite seasons because of all the fun we can have in the snow. Making snowman and sliding down the hills is something everyone enjoys, no matter if you are young or old. But it looks like animals love it even more.

It seems the spring is coming, and the snow is slowly melting, but that doesn’t stop this beautiful dog from making the best out of the remaining snow. He is indeed a true professional when it comes to sliding and partying.

He can’t have it enough of flipping over, and sliding down with his legs in the air. This way, he can feel the fresh breeze and the beauty of the chilly day. He is so smart, that once he gets to the bottom, he immediately does everything over again. Watching him carelessly and enthusiastically enjoying the winter games, we get the urge to join him, and have fun ourselves.

This amusing dog, reminds us of the time when we were little kids, and couldn’t wait for the winter to come. We recall all those cold days spend outside in the neighborhood, tossing snowballs, making snow angels, and catching snowflakes with our tongues out. These perfect days would end up with having a nice cup of hot chocolate, and then doing to bed.

This dog simply reminds us of the beauty we can find in the small things. It’s amazing how a little snow can bring so much happiness in one’s life. We hope this dog’s day will end with a nice treat to warm him up.

Chanel bans fur and animal skins – CNN Style

Written by Lianne Kolirin, CNN
Chanel has agreed to ban fur and exotic skins from its collections, saying it wanted to maintain ethical standards and following pressure from animal rights campaigners.
The internationally renowned French fashion house announced that it will stop producing garments and accessories made from animal fur, as well as leathery skins such as crocodile, lizard and snake.
A spokeswoman for Chanel told CNN that the decision was taken partly because it is not possible to obtain such products which meet the company’s principles.
Karl Lagerfeld: The man behind Chanel
She said: “At Chanel, we are continually reviewing our supply chains to ensure they meet our expectations of integrity and traceability. In this context, it is our experience that it is becoming increasingly difficult to source exotic skins which match our ethical standards.”
The spokesperson confirmed that new policy also applies to fur, adding that this decision provides “an opportunity to create a new generation of high-end products.”
A model walks the runway during the Chanel show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall-Winter 2019 on March 6, 2018 in Paris, France.
The move has been welcomed as a campaign victory by the the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), whose motto is, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear.”
Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of PETA, said in a statement: “The champagne corks are popping at PETA, thanks to Chanel’s announcement that it’s kicking fur and exotic skins — including crocodile, lizard, and snake skin — to the curb.
“For decades, PETA has called on the brand to opt for luxury, cruelty-free fashion that no animal had to suffer and die for, and now it’s time for other companies, like Louis Vuitton, to follow the lead of the iconic double C’s and do the same.”
Chanel’s creative director since 1983 is Karl Lagerfeld. He took the job 12 years after the death of its founder Coco Chanel. In a former role at Fendi, he introduced the use of skins such as mole, rabbit, and squirrel pelts into his designs.
PETA believes there is no longer a compelling argument for using animal products, as “advancements in textiles have made faux fur and vegan leather nearly indistinguishable from animal pelts and skins.”
Chanel Fall-Winter 2010 collection showed at Yoyogi National Gymnasium on June 23, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan. The fur used in the show was faux fur.
Gucci announced a similar move last year by pledging not to use mink, coyote, raccoon dog, fox or any other animal bred or caught for its fur.
In 2016, Italian designer Giorgio Armani announced that his brands would end their use of fur, “reflecting our attention to the critical issues of protecting and caring for the environment and animals.”
Vivienne Westwood, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren are also fur-free.
In recent seasons, many brands have embraced fake fur, with the genuine article increasingly seen as outdated.
“Real fur is extraordinarily old-fashioned,” Stella McCartney, whose own brand is fully vegetarian, told CNN in 2015. “It’s not relevant, it’s not sexy, it’s not fashionable, and it’s not cool.”
Chanel joins other labels such as ASOS, Nike, Nine West, Puma and numerous others that have already banned exotic skins, according to PETA.
