THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP END THE CANADA COMMERCIAL SEAL HUNT #SAVETHESEALS


  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 --- 

PLEASE CHECK OUT & SIGN/SHARE OUR PETITION HERE! CLOSE TO 20,000 International Voices & Growing! https://www.change.org/p/justin-trudeau-stop-the-canada-commercial-seal-hunt-don-t-seal-their-fate Do You Have A Second To Help?


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.

**UPDATE**

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.

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.

     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".

Ban Canada Seal Hunt: Reaching Out To Canadian Government





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.

End Canada Commercial Seal Hunt: Our Open Letter To Prime Minister Justin Trudeau



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.

IS THIS RIGHT? USDA BLACK OUT ANIMAL WELFARE REPORTS

IMPERATIVE INFORMATION THAT WE ALL NEED TO KNOW!!!

   We as animal angels not only raise our voices & take actions for our innocent lives in need, but we also depend upon the assistance/duties and responsibilities of Government Agencies, in which are responsible for animal welfare and well being, to play their active roles in making sure that such enforcement and laws are in place to protect our voiceless as well.

   But it appears, according to reliable sources, that perhaps some certain agencies cannot be depended on, especially when you read reports about how the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) suddenly purged animal welfare information from a Government website --- literally taking it away from the public's view.

I, like many other individuals, found these actions to be not only unjustifiable, but also suspicious as well --- considering that countless investigators & watchdogs etc depend upon this imperative information in order to further their fight for the rights and welfare of animals around the country, and allows the public the freedom of being informed of such crucial information and reports.

    These reports included information on such places as Seaworld, dog breeders and puppy mills, zoos and circuses, and even taxpayer funded animal testing labs, among many others. Places in which have raised countless eyebrows and concerns, and now with the actions of the USDA more red flags and issues regarding such a step is now raising more attention and concern.

Link To Report:  http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/02/13/usda-animal-cruelty/

   This poor and unjustifiable strategy on the USDA's part and the part of the administration is only protecting the actions of cruelty and inhumanity and permitting offenders/abusers a free pass by basically hiding away within the shadows this information from the public's knowledge and view-- not to mention, violating consumer's protection and freedom of knowledge as well.

    The USDA is in charge of enforcing the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), therefore their responsibilities and duties are for the animals & their welfare and well-being --- so why dispose of such imperative information that could literally help save and protect innocent lives from actions of cruelty and inhumanity?  the whole scenario seems to be a let down and failure to our innocent.

    We as humanity should have the right to answers and knowledge of what goes on behind closed curtains of such incorporation and industries --- and be provided this imperative information from such agencies that hold that duty within their hands to protect innocent life.  We need to make the steps and put the pressure upon the USDA to restore animal cruelty information back on their website --- and show individuals of the world, where they exactly stand.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TODAY - https://www.change.org/p/united-states-department-of-agriculture-usda-the-restoration-of-animal-cruelty-information-back

Shut Down Bandung Zoo -- Open Letter to President of Indonesia

Dear President Joko Widodo;

   We at Raise Ur Paw and individuals of society are writing to you about the disturbing and inhumane viral video that has been circulating throughout social media -- showing within the Bandung Zoo in Indonesia a group of starving and skeletal-like bears: which according to many sources has been apparently going on for months.

    Judging by the matter at hand and the condition in which these innocent beings display, the Bandung Zoo is clearly and most-definitely negligent and irresponsible --- and that such actions against beloved animals should be seen as a criminal act.

   According to much research and through other sources, this is not the first time that innocent lives were treated in this inhumane and horrific manner -- many have even perished due to such actions within the premises -- without any remorse or changes in order to better or make difference to the welfare and well-being of these innocent beings.

   We are reaching out to you and extending the urgency to please take this imperative concern and issue into your immediate attention, and use your political power/influence to put pressure upon others within your Government to make the necessary and dire steps needed to save and protect these innocent souls that are enslaved and mistreated there.

     This form of action that we are requesting is one that will surely make a positive difference not only in the lives of the animals inhabiting there, but for the future generations to observe that we had come together as a unity to make the impact to protect and be voices for our voiceless and demonstrate compassion and respect by not tolerating or accepting such cruel and inhumane treatment within our modern society.

     We are truly hoping that you, as President of Indonesia, will shut down the Bandung Zoo, find and demand appropriate and suitable veterinary care for all the inhabitants there, re-locate these lives to either sanctuaries or within the custody of appropriate animal-rights organizations, and lastly, to make changes or create animal welfare laws so that this issue does not appear again.

Please RAISE UR PAW --- We Are Counting On Your Support!

Go No Kill - Adopting No-Kill Policies Within Shelters



To Whom It May Concern;

   We as a compassionate society are writing to you in hopes that we can request everyone to please support and urge kill shelters to fully adopt no-kill policies in order to give full second chances for innocent lives in need.

    Although there are a countless number of no-kill shelters within our society today, there are still many others that still proceed with the extreme measures of euthanizing healthy and treatable life for the mere reasons that forever and homes and families cannot be found within certain time periods (stemming from one week to one month, depending on the space and policies), as well as the over-crowding and lack of space of facilities.

    It is our belief and within our opinion, that we can make a difference and have these kill shelters adopt no-kill policies and find adequate and humane methods in order to deal with situations that they find themselves in without using such inhumane strategies.  It is also with this belief that we feel that with enough backing, voices and support, we can truly reach this goal.

   Euthanasia should not/nor ever be used as a "solution" to over-crowded shelters, or for our innocent voiceless who have been over-looked and unable to find suitable and loving homes, especially since there are other alternative solutions that are present.

    With the support of individuals, like yourselves, we can not just encourage kill-shelters to follow in the same footsteps as other shelters, but also reach out and spread the imperative message that will also play an active role in making the changes necessary in the process of saving and protecting the innocent lives that find themselves within these facilities.

WHAT WE CAN DO:


  • Reaching out to politicians and municipalities and request support, and encourage their voices in helping urge kill-shelters to change their policies.
  • Spreading awareness on the importance of spaying and neutering, which will help decrease animal over-population.
  • Educating on the importance of responsible pet ownership 
  • Urging such shelters to establish and maintain screening of potential adopters, to decrease the amount of animals who have been relinquished, abused, neglected, abandoned etc.
  • To encourage and urging re-training and rehabilitation of animals which may have behavioral problems (which can be achieved through much dedication and determination by caring and compassionate volunteer or staff members)
  • Raising awareness and promoting adoption and fostering instead of buying.
  • Relocating animals from "kill-shelters" to "no-kill shelters" 
  • Working at coming up with ways to gain funding so that kill-shelters can be provided with the necessary aspects so that they can change to no-kill.
  • Urging our municipalities and political figures to play their active roles in helping save/protect innocent sheltered life by making changes to laws so that euthanasia is unacceptable: unless the animal is suffering or terminally ill, and no medical treatment or methods can save them. 

 PLEASE JOIN US IN SUPPORTING "NO-KILL" and let's unite as one and raise ur paw to make this dream a reality... we can make this happen, and with a compassionate and dedicated network of individuals we can truly make "kill-shelters" places of the past and bring forth a new hope in humanity in the fight to protect and save innocent lives in need.

Stop Trophy Hunt Auction: Open Letter To President Donald Trump

Dear President Donald Trump;

   As a member and compassionate individual in society I have always believed in the rights of the
innocent and the protection/safety of such life as well --- and along with this belief, I also hold the hope that we all can come together as one united force to make the world a more kinder and compassionate residence for not only humanity, but for all innocent lives and species as well.

    It is with this hope that we are reaching out to you, not just as a newly appointed President of the United States, but as an individual who has made the statement "Let's Make America Great Again!" and request that you urge your sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr, to please Not go ahead and proceed with the trophy hunt auction in which they are planning to hold one day after your inauguration at the Walter E.

    We truly acknowledge and understand that as an appointed President that there is much on your plate and imperative issues that needs attention... but it is this action in which your heirs are participating in and coordinating that is another issue within the eyes of society, trophy hunting ( a deemed sport that is not tradition but a travesty of conservation) --- and such actions of capitalizing off the lives of the innocent is truly inappropriate and unacceptable way to celebrate an individual, like yourself, ascending into the role of the "power of the people!"

    This is your opportunity to play a significant role in making a stand for our innocent voiceless, to be a positive role-model and figure who is not just a voice for humanity, but for all species --- and with that voice make a positive statement that "all innocent life matters" and must be treated with respect, compassion, care and humanely for the purpose of creating a better world and future --- not just for us, but for all species and future generations to come.

We thank you so much for your time, and hope that this open letter finds its way to you.

CAMOUFLAGE & CUFFLINKS: OUR OPINION

As an individual of society, my support when it comes to politics and to those who are or will be brought into power as leaders, has always been to those who are about making positive changes and differences in order to make impacts and improvements in this world we live in... and upon the lives and well-being of all species of innocent life, not just humanity.

  In recent reports it was brought to the world's attention the fact that Donald Trump's sons, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump, hunting enthusiasts, will be ringing in their father's ascent into power by holding a fundraiser and party which would include the opportunity to trophy hunt.. from wild turkey, grizzly bear, and even bald eagle!

  Such actions and displays as this, is by far so unacceptable and inappropriate for a celebration of an individual who is ascending into power of the people, such as president. This role is suppose to be an empowering position that many view as a leader and defender of the lives and welfare of species, and a positive and reflective role-model for the bettering of our world and future. 

     In my honest opinion, I for one am truly disgusted and disgraced that individuals -- NO matter who they are, would take this role or aspects around this role of greatness, and abuse it in a manner to excuse and/or take opportunity to capitalize from the inhumanity and cruelty of taking an innocent life, such as the unjustifiable trophy hunt.

    What I believe needs to be done is for the President to first-hand "nip this in the butt" and show voting individuals that this form of "conservation", as many would describe it, is not the way that we protect and save innocent species from extinction --- and with that urge or demand his heirs to withdraw from hosting such a brutal event , and to lean further on other humane forms or strategies of conservation.

     Only we as humanity can truly make a difference and change, but we need to unite as one powerful force to make that goal a reality for ourselves, the world and future.... Raise Ur Paw Today!

H.E.L.P (Humane Education Learning Programs) Raise Ur Paw



OUR HUMAN EDUCATION LEARNING PROGRAM'S MISSION:

We at Raise Ur Paw would like to introduce the idea and future development of our H.E.L.P (Humane Education Learning Programs).

    Our H.E.L.P was created by our not-for-profit incorporation, RAISE UR PAW CA9102493 with the mission to bring upon the fostering of compassion and respect for all living beings and the environment through educational lessons and resources for youths and educators within educational institutes and facilities.

    Such educational services and resources are specially designed to provide a combination of focus points such as building awareness, sharing knowledge and resources, animal protection, responsibilities, environmental preservation and encouraging and empowering the involvement of youth of all ages.


If you would like to ORDER one of our #AnimalAngelsUnited T-Shirts Or Donate to Helping Establish Our Humane Education Learning Programs - Please Click on the Link here, and also share with your friends, family, groups etc. ---> https://www.booster.com/raise-ur-paw-join-animal-angels-united 


(Only a few days remaining to support this pawsome campaign)


   With our advocacy efforts and our strong aims and goals, we are hoping to directly present our humane educational learning programs and services to educators and students in hopes of establishing and forming impacts upon our young individuals and their development.

Such Goals and Aims That We Hope To Achieve:


  • Raising awareness and education on current animal welfare issues, along with promoting kinder and compassionate choices in order for our youths to play their active roles and parts for our voiceless, and the world in which we reside in.
  • Gaining support, empathy and empowerment to create a world of acceptance and compassion towards animals of all species and using such skills to be positive role-models and action takers.
  • To establish and encourage involvement from youths and those around them (family and friends) and participate in the efforts that is imperative in the fostering of a kinder and compassionate world and future.

    These programs will be designed and linked to age-appropriate instruction, materials and resources and will provide students/educators with the necessary tools to make positive changes and differences, role-models, lifestyle decisions and informative teaching that they can carry with them as they journey into the future.

    We believe that our programs are not only imperative, but essential in the development of young minds for a kinder and more compassionate world and future --- and that such an introduction of important lessons within the education curriculum is a step in the right direction.

     We are truly hoping that each and every animal angel and individual of the world will take this opportunity to support and take part in such a positive and life-changing experience....
