txtrillkucci:

Hi. I am a volunteer worker for Austin pets alive! && I would like to introduce you to the “lonely hearts club” at our downtown facility. These beauties have been with us for far too long && they would love to be apart of you’re family! As you can see, they are mostly pitbulls but they are sweet angels && just like rest of our dogs, they need love && care. They only difference is they’ve been with us for 6 months to a year && this simply can not do.

Please, if you’re in the Austin area, open up your hearts && home to a loving dog. If you’re considering adoption, message me for location details.

Thank you from me && the lonely hearts club.

MAN RENTS BILLBOARD TO FIND STOLEN DOG - “This billboard cost me $1,950 for five days. I don’t care about the money. What I care about is Boomer…”

For the past five months, a man named Eddie Williams has been conducting a desperate search for his dog Boomer, a Poodle. Boomer went missing from the car while Williams was at a gas station. Recently, Williams rented a mobile billboard with Boomer’s photo prominently displayed on the side. Although Williams has spent thousands of dollars on the search, it appears money is secondary to Boomer’s safe return. Read more from Fox 59 News:

Boomer has been missing for five months. Williams said someone stole his dog out of his car when he went to pay for gas inside a station at the corner of Sherman Drive and 25th Street on Indianapolis’ east side. For the past five months, Williams has felt a void in his life without his dog.

“He’s not a dog to me he’s a little human. My little human, and he’s my travelling companion,” said Williams. “I drive semis for a living he was everywhere I went.”

He even hired a private investigator to search for the dog, but when that didn’t work, he decided to rent the mobile billboard for even more exposure. He used a bold yellow background and red writing to highlight the $1,500 reward he’s offering. The billboard is already creating buzz.

Please share, especially if you are in the Indianapolis area. Hopefully Boomer turns up and is reunited with his dedicated owner soon. Bring Boomer Home! Click here for the full story and a news video.

My Advice for Living an Awesome Life by Captain Paul Watson

animalsandtrees:

I received a message from someone asking me for some advice on how to live and have a happy adventurous life. I’m not sure that my advice is for everyone but here it is.

I have been fortunate, to have lived a happy and adventurous life. At first it was not easy. We were very poor. My father was abusive. My mother died young leaving six young children to find their way on their own. And they all did, in their separate ways.

For myself I left home at 15 and went to sea at 17 leaving my obstacles behind and focusing on enjoying this wondrous phenomenon called life. I have lived a happy life without anger, fear, stress or regret doing the things that I dreamt of doing when I was younger, learning many new things and confronting challenging obstacles, all of which made my life more interesting.

Did you know chickens see both ultraviolet and infrared light waves? 

The reason chickens are bright-eyed and fluffy-tailed early in the morning is because they see the sun rise before we do…they’re seeing the infrared light waves of the sun long before our eyes notice it.

Cool, huh?

"Being vegan won’t stop animals dying completely, as long as humans are on this earth animals are going to die"

Homeless person wants some change? Sorry buddy, but giving you $1 won’t end homelessness, so why should I bother?????

Recycling? Why fucking bother, one person recycling won’t end the environmental devastation we are inflicting upon this world, so why the FUCK should I bother??

WE can’t do EVERYTHING so OBVIOUSLY we should do NOTHING.

JUST RELEASED UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION:
Mercy For Animals investigator documented workers at a Maple Leaf chicken hatchery throwing baby chicks by their fragile wings, slamming them into metal dividers, sending them through an industrial washing machine to be scalded and drowned, and violently cramming them into macerators to be ground up alive.

This is just a small display of the systematic cruelties in animal agribusiness. Please consider helping these defenseless birds by taking them off your plate.
