Little things, like signing a petition or contacting your state’s representative, can have a big impact for helping animals. Together we can be the collective voice on behalf of those animals in danger or who need protection. Of course Wagbrag is all about pets, but we have a responsibility to help and protect ALL animals. Please review some of these urgent petitions and sign today. Help make the world a better place for all animals.
Urgent Petitions For Animals
1)End the Yulin Dog Meat Festival
Thousands of dogs, many of them stolen pets, are captured and transported over long distances under horrific conditions to Yulin, a city in China’s Guangxi Autonomous Region. There, they’re held in crowded cages without food or water until they are killed. Often, they are beaten and their throats are slit in front of other terrified animals.
2) Please help to rescue an abused elephant named Nosey
Nosey the elephant needs our help. She is showing signs of arthritis, but still forced to stay on the road giving rides to people despite evidence that she’s suffering! A veterinarian even says that Nosey “is unnecessarily suffering, permanently disabled, crippled, and is knowingly being maimed.” Please tell the USDA to act to rescue Nosey from her abuse life of captivity and urge your members of Congress to pressure the USDA to do its job!
There are plans in motion to open up a new beagle farm to supply animal testing in East Yorkshire. The new site will allow more animals to be bred and easily moved around to facilities in the United Kingdom where they will be subjected to research procedures and never experience life outside of a cage.
3) Ban the sale of ivory within Colorado
A hundred years ago five million African elephants roamed the wild. Today, there are fewer than 500,000 African and fewer than 40,000 Asian elephants remaining; 100,000 were killed by poachers in the last three years alone. At this rate, elephants will likely be extinct in the wild within 10 to 15 years.

4) Rescue Masha From “Bear Baiting” Camp in Russia
Masha, an 11-year-old bear from a travelling circus troupe based in Moscow, walked up-right in costumes during performances with the Circus on Fontanka in St. Petersburg. Retired from the circus because of her age, Masha is now being held in a much more gruesome place – a camp that uses her as “bait” for training dogs to hunt bears in the wild.
