URGENT: Decry release of 98 doves in Pasadena, California!

Despite hearing from PETA and thousands of supporters, on January 2, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) released 98 doves during the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, in memory of the victims of the horrific Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando, Florida. As you know, these captive-bred birds can wander for days on end—without sustenance or rest—in their frantic attempt to return to familiar surroundings, often succumbing to extreme weather, predator attacks, and numerous other dangers. Please urge AHF to utilize other means of commemoration in the future, rather than resorting to those which result only in more suffering—then share this alert far and wide!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
