Help protect Spanish Greyhounds

Dog lovers, you know how much it breaks your heart when you hear about a dog being abandoned by his or her owners for whatever reason. After a grueling career as a hunting dog, many Spanish greyhounds are abandoned like this, leaving this ancient, loving breed of canine companion to a life of desolation, abuse, or death. The dogs are often seen abandoned and starving, begging for scraps after their owners have used them until their old age. Please click here to ask Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to help protect these noble dogs and prevent them from such suffering.

Save Beluga Whales from death

Have you ever seen a beluga whale? When I was 18, I had the opportunity to do so, and it was one of the most breathtaking, amazing moments of my entire life. I still get goose bumps right now, just thinking about that magnificent, enormous creature right in front of me. The Apache Alaska Corporation, however, is about to use airguns to explore the region where the very last belugas of the Alaska Cook inlet live for oil and gas. These airguns will kill, if not injure to the point of deafness and other impairment, the belugas. Please click here to learn more and to ask the Obama administration to step in and stop the airgun operation.
