International opinion of the Canada Commercial Seal Hunt continues to escalate in support of the innocent lives of seal species who each year are slaughtered by being bludgeoned or shot in the head in order to fulfill unnecessary demands of sealers and industries for mere profit and product. It is due to these horrific actions and nature of such a seal cull, that we are truly hoping to count upon the support and voices of global individuals, organizations, political figures and Governments to urge Canadian Government and Prime Minister to end this dying-industry once and for all.
As we venture to achieve such a goal, we want to bring attention and reminder to individuals around the world that simple and possible effective steps can help make even the littlest bit of difference in the efforts to finally #SaveTheSeals:
SIGN AND SHARE THE PETITION
International Support through SIGNING/SHARING of petitions is one step towards helping the cause to #SaveTheSeals, this allows individuals to place their voice among the others and keep up to date on progress in which the organizer of the petition (whether individual or organization) is doing for the efforts to fight against the issue at hand ---

EDUCATE YOURSELF THROUGH RESEARCH!
Educating oneself is an imperative key to fully making an impact to helping save innocent lives. Through research and observations of sometimes graphic images, permits individuals to, at full extent, acknowledge and open their eyes to the nature of the issue --- and therefore, bringing upon strong knowledge that can assist further in extending the message to bring an end to this dying-industry, and in the recruitment of other individuals to join the ranks.
LET CANADIAN POLITICAL FIGURES & GOVERNMENT KNOW YOUR OPINIONS
Countless amount of information, documentation, and images are constantly being brought to surface thanks to the power of internet & the tireless efforts of other individuals, organizations etc --- It is these aspects, along with your own personal concerns and opinions, that desperately need to be brought to the attention of the Canadian Government.
Another imperative step is to write or phone political figures & Government in Canada to express such opinions and disapproval to this inhumane cull and the Governments involvement through stand and subsidy that they put towards such actions --- and it is up to the voices of the people to urge Canadian Government to put a full ban on the commercial seal hunt, and end their involvement immediately.
#SAVETHESEALS THROUGH SPREADING THE WORD - URGENT
Even though such a seal cull has being going on for decades, there is still individuals who still do not know that such a harvest exists, or they refuse to acknowledge and accept such actions ---- so it is of importance to spread the word to everyone internationally.
Steps to achieve this goal is through social media or through word of mouth -- inspiring and encouraging others to be not only voices, but to take action in order to make a possible impact to bringing to an end this "seal harvest" - Together as one powerful voice, we can make a difference... so let's start spreading the message.
PRESENT YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH DEMONSTRATION
Unity in numbers can help make a difference --- if you want to do more than just write letters or raise awareness (via social media) there are plenty of organizations and groups in which you can join and check out to see if they are holding any demonstrations or protests within your community or surrounding areas that you can participate in.
Actively being part of a demonstration shows support and increases the reach and chances at achieving the goal in which is set, even if you find that there is no demonstration that is near you, you can create your own --- gather resources & materials needed (posters, leaflets etc), recruit other individuals to join in and make a stand with you and take to the streets to educate, encourage, empower and Save! It is as simple as that.
We are happy to announce that we will also be selling #SaveTheSeals T-shirts, which will be available for purchase within the next week or so :) All proceeds and contributions gathered from sales will go directly to helping the efforts of the SAVE THE SEALS Campaign - We will keep everyone posted for when more changes occur and when special events are added.

JOIN US IN ONE UNITED FORCE TO #SAVETHESEALS THIS JULY 20th, 2017
We at RAISE UR PAW, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit are truly hoping to unite individuals and organizations for an international effort to ban the Commercial Seal Hunt within Canada through #SaveTheSeals. Our Campaign is directed towards the Government of Canada & Canadian Political Officials in hopes of urging them to pull their support and funding from this inhumane and cruel hunt.
For decades, innocent seal species have been victimized and murdered by sealers and the sealing industry in order to fulfill demands for seal products, even though the market is decreasing at a considerable rate, and bans for seal products have been set in place by many countries around the globe.
But even with the decreasing market, bans, countless rallies and protests & petitions, this vile action against these innocent lives is still going on, supported and funded (tax-payers dollars) by the Canadian Government ... and they still define this dying industry as "Humane".

Animal Angels Your Urgent Help and Hearts Are In Need
For the month of August 2017, we will be holding our "first-ever" #AdoptionAngels Campaign - a campaign established and designed where individuals worldwide can unite in support to build up awareness around the issues that are not only leading and leaving these beloved companion animals within shelters and humane societies, but also to increase adoption and fostering so that these babies get the second chance at love and life that they rightfully deserve.
It is through this imperative focus, and the high demand for Fostering and Adoption that we at Raise Ur Paw, A Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit, has brought this campaign to life in hopes of amplifying the efforts to make a difference for all the lives that are crying out for the World's attention and help.
WHAT ARE WE HOPING TO ACHIEVE THROUGH THIS CAMPAIGN:
With the countless ways that individuals worldwide can help and support in making the difference & changing the world for a sheltered life in need, we are truly hoping in achieving the following efforts:
* To extend the reach of individuals further through social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc) by not only sharing and posting sheltered animals who are in dire need of loving home and family, but also your own photos & stories of your adopted/fostered pet using the hashtag #AdoptionAngels.
* By providing imperative knowledge on the issues at hand that are being faced on a daily basis (puppy mills, backyard breeders etc) and the valuable benefits of saving an innocent sheltered life in need. The more information people receive, the more educated they become!
* To spread the message of encouragement to individuals to ADOPT and NOT BUY - or even if they cannot adopt a sheltered animal in need, even the promotion of fostering can be a huge and impactful aid.
Your active participation through aid and support of the #AdoptionAngels Campaign, you are sending out the message of hope and compassion to all the homeless, abused, neglected, unloved and rescued sheltered animals, and that together united we can find the fur-ever loving homes and families that they are desperately crying out for.

Dear Government of Canada & Political Figures:
We are writing to you in urgent hopes of gaining your attention and support against an issue that is costing over hundred of thousands of innocent lives a year for mere human profit and unnecessary products within Canada.
This issue is the Canada's Commercial Seal Hunt, a "harvest" in which innocent seal species and their pups are being inhumanely bludgeoned and shot in the head for such production and distribution of seal oil, fur, aphrodisiacs and more --- and it is this form of treatment and brutal process that we are in dire need of your support and action to bring such cruelty to an end once and for all.
Over the years countless organizations and even some political figures within the Canadian Government have attempted with much effort to blind society through their statements and presentations that what is happening to defenseless seals is something necessary and once again "humane", as they constantly put it --- trying with much desperation to lead individuals to believe that animal organizations and animal angels are merely misinformed or bringing forth the stretching of truth in order to persuade and manipulate those in order to shut down this, what some call an "imperative industry to Canada!" --- but in all due respect, the countless information and proof of the cruelty and inhumanity that goes hand in hand with this industry speaks for itself.
We acknowledge the fact that sealing had been a huge industry within Canada, but as the years are progressing, the reality of such a hunt is coming further and further into the light -- leading not only much outrage and concern worldwide, but also decreasing and almost perishing market for such products, leading to continuous bans from other countries in which has been brought into effect due to the nature of this hunt. So with these pull-away from the commercial seal hunt, the ultimate question remains.... Do you believe that the Canada Commercial Seal Hunt is worth investing taxpayers hard-earned dollars into it???
We believe that a possible solution, in which we read about, would be very beneficial to not only the innocent lives that this hunt effects, but also to the investors and those within the sealing industry --- giving them a chance to free themselves & gain back their investments that they have put forth within the sealing industry -- a complete federal buyout! This solution would remove the Canadian Government's stand and investment, give back to those who have invested into the industry, bring a stop to the seal hunt, and allow funding, in which the Government used to subsidize the hunt, to go towards other issues and concerns (such as education, medical, etc.)
We are requesting that you take the opportunity to take a first-hand observation at the imperative role that ending the Canada Commercial Seal Hunt would be, and Support the efforts of the countless voices and organizations trying tirelessly to make a difference in this world we live in and future generations to come.
Please RAISE UR PAW TODAY & Say #BanSealHunt
Your Attention and Support Is Needed For A Better Tomorrow.

Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau & Canadian Government:
We at Raise Ur Paw and individuals of humanity worldwide are extending our reach to you in hopes of gaining your attention and urging your immediate action to not only abandon the efforts to continue the commercial seal hunt, but to bring to an end this perishing industry in which has put blemish upon Canada.
This urgency for action and attention has been requested for numerous years -- stemming from individuals, organizations and even celebrities who have worked determined and dedicated through protests, presentations, images and evidence in order to gain the support of the Government and its Prime Ministers to do what is needed to be done in order to save and protect the innocent lives of our voiceless from such inhumanity, cruelty and threat.
Yet even with the extreme amount of awareness, markets globally for such products and distributions of seal diminishing, plus collapses, bans/prohibits of imports/exports from major trading partners (US & Eur) the Canadian Government and the Federal Fisheries Department are still blinded by their own reasons that this industry is humane and sustainable and even quotas of seals is being increased for products such as fur, seal oil (health supplement) and aphrodisiacs (things that I am sure we can live without)-- and that through this blindness, tens of millions of dollars from taxpayers has been distributed as subsidies to fund this dying industry.
How can we as a civilized society excuse such actions that are being displayed by the commercial seal hunt and the role of the Canadian Government, to ignore the fact that this industry is causing an extreme threat along with climate change against the populations of seals, that it is giving the sense of unrealistic hope to those participating and made investments in the commercial seal hunt that things will get better, even though evidence is clearly showing that such ways of thinking is just a hope that is dying along with this industry.
Through the outpouring of outrage and protest --- perhaps we can come to a beneficial solution, a strategy in which may just very well be a positive dealing for this issue and that is a Federal Sealing Industry Buyout: According to a poll that was conducted by Ipsos Reid, between Dec. 7, 2009 - Jan 24th, 2010 (according to report) it revealed that half of Newfoundland Sealers (holding an opinion) supported a Federal Buyout of the Sealing Industry.
This buyout would not only compensate sealers and vessel owners (according to report) but it would also relieve the burden from taxpayers whose monies are going towards subsidies of such commercial seal hunt, and therefore such funding could be distributed to other issues that are in desperate need of attention and funding, and thus allowing the Canadian Government to bow away from the ties and participation it has with the commercial seal hunt.
We believe that we can come together as a unity and create positive impacts and differences -- and that with leadership and influential support we can truly show the greatness of our nation and world for not just humanity, but for all life.
