Nothing like a bit of procrastination to get me back into my blog!
I am supposed to be updating my CV to apply for all sorts of wonderful and exciting jobs around Dunedin but it is more important that I let you know about Animal Strike.
In New Zealand “party pills” and legal highs are being tested on dogs. This needs to stop. I am not unreasonable, if the tests were for life saving medicine then I would get over it but these horrible, distressing, tests are purely for recreational drugs. If people want to use them then let them volunteer to test them, we should not be allowing innocent creatures to be tested on to let shady people make stacks of money and for silly ass-hats to have a great party. Have a great party but leave the animals out of it.
Please visit the Paw Justice Animal Strike website to sign the petition and let the New Zealand Government know that people DO NOT want this to continue. Imagine your dog, cat, hamster, rat, pig, monkey or lizard – whatever animal you love, being forced to take drugs that make them feel weird and scared and they couldn’t understand why. Imagine that they cannot control themselves. Fight for their rights.
Spread the word and let’s bring an end to this.
The strike date has passed but it is not too late to make a difference.
