We in CATCA are currently desperate to get funds for an investigation for CITES that will help us in our effords to save 38,000-40,000 African elephants  of getting kill for their ivory tusks!. We were very succesful in March this year at the CITES CoP to save them. (Check our prior Reports in the Report section of our website). Now we have to prepare ourselves well to be able to have a good investigation with proper results and as a consequence, we will have strong arguments for the next CITES CoP, but we are running against the clock to get the neccesary funds to start ASAP!

Please go to this thread and follow the link indicated. you can send a strong message to those who need to hear it.
Go to this link and tell the military to stop these atrocities.

To get a reasonably sensible person to deliberately go around killing others in the name of so-called patriotism requires some sort internal rearrangement. Enter man’s best friend – if you can abuse your best friend in the most brutal ways, there’s a good chance you’re ready to do the same to others of your own species.


PNE Not Fair For Animals

Well some folks may celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Pacific National Exhibition we must not forget its legacy of animal rights abuses. An untold number of animals were repeatedly subjected to psychological and physical suffering. They were force to perform tricks on cue and used in games as prizes.  “PNE” could have stood for “Promoting Non-Human Exploitation”. While some cruel practices continue today, the lessons learnt have influenced the way animals are treated in Vancouver.

Dog in need of a good home

She can be found in the “A Better Life Rescue Dog” website and I’ve also placed ads in Kijiji and Craigslist but so far I’ve just received weird e-mails.  I know that she could end up in the wrong hands, because of her breed and size.  So I’m writting to you with the hope that among the good people that you know somebody can help us with a foster or give her a permanent home.  She is the sweetest dog and one that has suffered enough so please help us.
