3 good news stories about animals!

Updated: 6 days ago


We could all use some good news today, right? 

 

It’s easy to get caught up in endless stories of cruelty to animals. But it helps to remember the positive things happening to save animals from suffering! 

 

Today, we’d like to share some uplifting stories about the good things happening for animals around the world!


Maryland’s governor signed a bill into law banning the use of elephants, bears, and primates in circuses and traveling shows. [1]


Circuses and other traveling acts are extremely stressful and torturous for wild animals who are kept in captivity and forced to perform unnaturally. 


“Elephants are known to suffer from a variety of health issues in captivity, including foot problems, arthritis, and psychological distress. Bears and primates also exhibit signs of stress and anxiety when forced to perform in unnatural settings. By banning their use in circuses and traveling shows, Maryland is sending a clear message that animal welfare is a top priority.” - World Animal News. [1]


A 210-foot-long wildlife crossing is currently under construction in Los Angeles, creating a safe passage over the 8 lanes of traffic of Highway 101. 


Cougars, lizards, coyotes, and more will be able to use the wildlife bridge, which will be covered in over 1 million native plants!


The new crossing will also help protect humans. Every year, more than one million wildlife/vehicle collisions occur across the U.S. [2]


Not the end of the fight, but a step in the right direction for farmed animals: the UK has banned the live exports of animals raised for slaughter! 


1.6 million cows, pigs, and sheep each year were previously crammed into trucks and forced to endure long journeys — sometimes lasting 96 hours — before being cruelly killed.


“For decades, farmed animals have endured these senseless and arduous exports to the continent – but no longer! I am phenomenally proud of our supporters whose dedication and persistence have helped secure this hard-fought victory,” said Philip Lymbery of Compassion in World Farming. [3]

Of course, our work is also good news! Our mission is to end the number 1 cause of suffering and death for dogs and cats -- overpopulation -- by developing a permanent-lasting birth control cookie that will only need to be eaten one time, and it will in effect spay or neuter -- without surgery.


We are a small, grassroots nonprofit carrying out work that pharmaceutical companies should be doing -- but they refuse. 


We are dedicated to ending this global problem, and a gift of any amount will help.


For as little as $5 a month, you can help us stop the suffering … before it starts. It’s less than a cup of coffee and will help save millions of lives!



Thanks so much for caring about animals, and we hope these good news stories brightened your day!
