There are so many animals out there being hurt, abused and/or neglected all around us. And it's time that we step up and speak out for these beautiful creatures no matter how great or small.If you are a Facebook friend of mine or are a frequent visitor of my blog, you know that I am involved in the well-being of Orangutans, Gorillas and Chimpanzees. I sign at least one or two petitions a day dealing with the safety of these precious creatures who will someday (not too far off) be extinct.
I recently came across a situation that is happening in Rockville, Maryland. I have decided to share the article and Petition in my blog to ask for you to please sign and help "Free The Rockville 15".The following article is from July 4th, 2012 explaining the meaning behind "Free The Rockville 15".
And here is the link to the Petition.
http://www.change.org/petitions/director-national-institutes-of-health-nih-release-the-rockville-15-to-a-chimpanzee-sanctuaryThe Petition was created by Elizabeth Kucinich. Elizabeth is a sustainable food & vegan advocate, a champion for peace, human rights, animals and the environment. Elizabeth is married to US Congressman Dennis Kucinich.
So far there are well over 23,000 signatures. The goal of the Petition is 25,000 as of right now. Once that goal is surpassed, there is a goal of 30,000 signatures.Help abused animals in any way possible; whether it be signing a petition, sharing a website about adopting a pet, saving an animal that is in trouble/distress or reporting animal abuse to your local authorities.
Animals have hearts and souls; they have feelings and emotions . . . Be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves . . .
