Stop the Egg Products Inspection Act in the House of Representatives, H.R. 3798/S., 3239

Contact your Congressional Representative and tell them to OPPOSE the Egg Products Inspection Act of 2012. This legislation would decriminalize animal cruelty by establishing “enriched” egg farm factory cages as a national standard that could never be challenged or changed by state law or public vote.

Help Topeka Zoo’s Elephant Sunda

Tell the USDA to remove Sunda from the Topeka Zoo and send her to a natural habitat sanctuary where she can walk on soft surfaces throughout the year and have far more room for healthy, healing movement. The zoo’s medical records indicate that Sunda has a history of recurring foot disease, and the USDA has repeatedly cited the Topeka Zoo for elephant care problems, going back to 1998. The zoo currently faces formal charges by the USDA that include providing “minimally appropriate husbandry” for the elephants and failure to inspect their feet as frequently as necessary.
Sunda and her cage-mate Tembo, an African elephant, have been subjected to the inadequate conditions at the Topeka Zoo for far too long. They live in a tiny exhibit and spend the long winters standing indoors on hard flooring, which is taking its toll on their feet. Both elephants display abnormal repetitive behaviors such as swaying and rocking. The Topeka Zoo has made four appearances on IDA’s annual list of the Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
