Trader Joe's Eggs NOT Humane

Critter News

Thanks to their valued feedback, in 2005 we made an important change in our egg selection. I decided to look online for some information regarding the "Organic Free Range Eggs" that Trader Joe's, my favorite store, sells. Here is what their web site says. A Note About Eggs At Trader Joe's we listen to what our customers tell us about the choices we give them. As of this time, all Trader Joe's brand eggs come only from cage-free hens.

Doris Day Animal League is Part of the Humane Society?

Critter News

I also learned that the Humane Society merged with the Fund for Animals in 2005. I just recently became a member of the Doris Day Animal League. Checking out their website, I came across this page saying that they merged with the Humane Society in 2006. The live link takes me to an announcement in 2006 about the merger. So now I'm a contributor and member of all three.without even realizing they were related!

Critter News

The listing was the result of a 2005 petition and litigation filed by the Center for Biological Diversity, Natural Resources Defense Council and Greenpeace. This is good news.

How to Confront Cruelty

Critter News

I came across this 2005 book from the Society & Animals Journal titled Confronting Cruelty Moral Orthodoxy and the Challenge of the Animal Rights Movement. Sounds interesting. Why and how do people campaign on behalf of a species that is not their own? Responses to this question provide important insights into the much misunderstood animal rights movement and the people in it who challenge the moral orthodoxy that underpins our attitudes towards nonhuman animals.

Harvard Medical School Facility Accused of Improper Research Reporting

Critter News

The school has not listed any non-human primates in this category from 2005 to 2009, according to the complaint. Sounds awful. Again, work by SAEN (Stop Animal Exploitation Now.) From the MetroWest Daily News. An Ohio-based animal rights organization has filed a complaint against Harvard Medical School, alleging that the school's New England Primate Research Center in Southborough did not properly report its experiments on animals.

US Retailers Concerned Over Australia's Delay in Ending Mulesing

Critter News

Macy's, Gap and Liz Claiborne Inc are among the big names to warn of their ''growing alarm'' and frustration over the backdown by the marketing and research body Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) from its promise in 2005 to replace mulesing with a commercially viable alternative by the end of this year. Such an awful practice. But, as is typical with many large industries, there is a resistance to change unless there is a clear and immediate profit windfall.

Happy 12th Birthday Violet Rays!

Animal Person

We spent the end of 2004 and beginning of 2005 getting fired by vet after vet. There she is. my girl. She has beaten the odds and made it another year. The life expectancy of greyhounds is 12-15 years. If they've raced, you subtract a year for each year of racing. Violet Rays was a very successful competitor and the offspring of a Hall of Famer, and she made someone a lot of money, winning race after race for the two years she was hauled between Oregon and South Florida.

Europeans Continue to Search for Alternatives to Animal Research.Why Not Americans?

Critter News

The EPAA was created in 2005 and is an unprecedented collaboration between science and industry to reduce animal suffering in scientific tests. I just don't understand it. Is there a different culture regarding animals in Europe? They have drug companies that are just as powerful as those here. Is public outcry greater? Are animal rights organizations more effective? Are politicians more willing to act? What gives? From Cordis News.

Byeong-Chun Lee and his team created the dogs by cloning fibroblast cells that create a red fluorescent gene.

Bernard E. Rollin on Animals as Ends

Animal Ethics

Rollin , "Reasonable Partiality and Animal Ethics," Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 8 [April 2005]: 105-21, at 117 As we mentioned, Kant restricts having intrinsic value or being an end in itself to rational beings, but it is difficult to see why this should be so.

Vile Practices at Tulare County, CA Animal Shelter

Critter News

The report further stated that Sargeant’s company purchased $1000 worth of gift certificates to a fancy restaurant and gave them to Harmon in 2005. I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley and am familiar with Tulare County. That's why this action alert from the Animal Legal Defense Fund strikes a cord with me. From the ALDF blog. Arrested in June 2007, Michael J. Sargeant, William R. Harmon, and Ron C.

Animals killed also include threatened and endangered species, a number which has steadily increased since 2005.

Smoky in the Hearts of the Veterans

On Veteran’s Day 2005 the Smoky memorial was opened in a shape of life-size bronze sculpture – Smoky sits in a soldier’s helmet on top of the two-ton granite pedestal. Dogs, as well as cats, are considered the most popular and delighting pets all over the world. However, sometimes it is difficult to recognize them just as pets, which preserve silence and follow their masters almost everywhere. Is it possible to observe some features of humans in their behavior?

In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, the LA/SPCA located in New Orleans was devastated. It may seem a bit strange to talk about chocolates on an animal blog. After all, our animal friends shouldn’t eat chocolate.

Julian H. Franklin on the Use of Animals in Research

Animal Ethics

Franklin, Animal Rights and Moral Philosophy [New York: Columbia University Press, 2005], 125 To inflict death or pain on animals for scientific or medical research is wrong morally, and ought to be prohibited. This follows from everything said in the text about the rights of animals. This does not mean that animals may never be deliberately harmed or become subjects of research.

Julian H. Franklin on Animals and Plants

Animal Ethics

Franklin, Animal Rights and Moral Philosophy [New York: Columbia University Press, 2005], 45 [endnote omitted Animals as well as humans can suffer pain, deprivation, and unwanted death. Vegetables cannot. Hence there is a very fundamental and relevant sense in which we cannot harm a vegetable. Anything we do to a head of lettuce or the bloom of a flower can be harmful (or beneficial) to one or more sentient beings who feed on these or otherwise enjoy them.
