RAISE UR PAWS UP WORLDWIDE - "We Can Change The World"

On Feb.20th, 2015, We at RAISE UR PAW, a not-for-profit incorporation, will be celebrating our 3 year anniversary, and what better way to celebrate, by uniting the world as one to RAISE THEIR PAWS WORLDWIDE for animals in need.

       RAISE UR PAW WORLDWIDE campaign is aiming to raise the paws of the world, to not only show the countless individuals that speak out and stand up for our innocent animals worldwide each day,  but to also raise awareness on the issues that our voiceless endure and subjected too on a daily basis.  When you Raise Ur Paw, it is more than just a statement – it is a message of hope that together we can find a solution and work together to protect and save the millions of lives that are needing our aid and support continuously.

    We are truly hoping that this campaign will reach every heart and voice of each individual around the globe, to unite us all as one clear, strong and powerful voice for the innocent. 

     On Feb. 20th, 2015 Please take a moment of your time to show your support and RAISE UR PAW – whether it be a simple statement, or a photo of yourself raising your paw high – every voice counts and every heart needed to show animals that we care.


“The KINDNESS one does for an ANIMAL may NOT change the WORLD, but it will change the WORLD forever for that one ANIMAL!” 

Thank You

STOP THE CULL - Our Open Letter to Government of British Columbia.

Dear Government Officials of British Columbia, Canada:

    We are writing this open letter to you in hopes of someway persuading you to rethink your plan on going forward with the cull of innocent wolves, which you have decided upon in an attempt to conserve the endangered mountain caribou.

     We feel that this plan in which you have established, will fail to achieve any improvement to the recovery or the decreasing population of caribou – considering the other threats and real destruction of this endangered species is permitted to continue on with the wiping out and destruction of the threatened species’ habitat and survival.

     This threat and key player is the industries that are being allowed to destroy the important component of the Caribou’s recovery – their habitat, and it is truly a shame that wolves are being pointed out as the targets of blame and used as scapegoats, when the real issue is the actions of man (logging, access roads, human activities).

      According to sources, approximately millions of taxpayer’s dollars are going towards this cull, instead of being used for the main focus at hand, the conservation of endangered mountain caribou – and such use should be put towards humane methods and strategies such as enforcing measures to stop the destruction of their habitat and survival, to work towards improving the caribou recovery, such as steps in which to repopulate the species, and work towards protection of the caribou’s habitat etc.

       The power to do was is right for the survival of all life falls upon us, a responsibility and duty that we as humanity need to carry out.   To claim lives in order to conserve another, is not/nor will it be the answer, we need to find solution using humane methods and strategies to fulfill the goals in which we aim to achieve.

Thank You

Dozens of animals which have died at the KHAN YOUNIS ZOO in the Gaza Strip has caused more than just concern – but also a social network tidal wave of outrage.

   On February 2, 2015 The Daily Mail presented the world with an article that literally froze many readers in their tracks with the images and story of the innocent lives that had perished within the walls of this prison of captivity.  The descriptions of how flies buzzed around the emaciated body of a lion, decaying within the sun, as a nearby mummified baboon corpse lies on the ground – it’s head still tilted up as though looking out of its enclosure... was just the start of the haunting images that will literally burn its imprint in one’s mind.

  But Zoo’s Owner Mohammed Awaida has blamed the Palestinian and Israeli conflict for the tragedy, stating that it meant that staff were unable to feed or care properly for the animals at the zoo – but as I read through this article I couldn’t help but question if the blame should only fall upon the conflict, considering that they know that such issues exist, so why are they not calling upon aid and support to have these animals that reside within the Zoos on the Gaza Strip removed and placed in locations which they can receive the appropriate care and protection, instead of being left to die. 

   This is more than just unable to feed and care properly for these animals, these babies are being left to perish from starvation and dehydration, and according to the article no form of Government body will oversee the Zoos, and no animal rights movement in this region  - leaving these babies and the zoos unsupervised.

  It is truly a shame that innocent lives are dying within these places instead of being free in which they were intended to be, and that no form of protection is there for them  and only provided with basic care.  The Governments of these countries needs to take responsibility of these beings, considering that it is their countries who are enslaving these babies and denying them their freedom and natural development.

   This haunting article should not only be heartbreaking and angering, but also an eye-opener that when it comes to prisons of captivity, laws must be placed and enforced in order to provide these innocent lives with the protection and care that their captors should offer and be responsible for.

Something Needs to Be Done To Help & Stop This From Happening Again.
