TORTURED, EMACIATED, STRANGLED, FOUND IN DUMPSTER WITH COLLAR RAMMED DOWN HER THROAT
SHE IS NOW ON DEATH ROW IN NEW YORK CITY! HELP!
I am writing with a desperate plea to save the life of a beautiful approximately 3-4 year old cat named Coco. I have attached her picture. Coco is sitting in our local high kill city shelter where her time is running out. Her story is a lifetime of sadness and neglect. Coco was found and spayed under a feral cat program as she is ear tipped. Somehow she made our way to our local humane society.
She was adopted there 2 years ago by a person who has adopted 7 cats from there. Coco was found last week in a dumpster in a bad neighborhood. She had clearly been tortured. She was found strangled with her collar shoved down her throat and emaciated with her tongue rotted off and no teeth. In spite of this she is a sweet, gentle and loving girl desperate to survive.
She nearly died the night she was brought into the shelter but somehow rallied and survived! Because she has no teeth and only a partial tongue she cannot eat well or drink on her own. She needs either to be syringe fed or be fed through a feeding tube. She has been doing well and getting stronger and proved how strong her will to survive is. Sadly, her stray hold is now up and the owner was unable to be located. She is now going to be euthanized if nobody takes her.
She needs a sanctuary where her feeding needs can be met. She has had such a sad life and you look into her eyes and see the pain she has been through. She wants to live and deserves a chance to have a life where she isn’t abused and doesn’t deserve to die. We don’t have any kind of place like that for her in our area.

“The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.

Surprise! It’s made from animals.
- PLASTIC BAGS — Some contain animal fat to reduce friction.
Alternative — Go green with reusable bags
- BIKE AND CAR TIRES — Some use animal-based stearic acid.
Alternative — Michelin and Kenda, at least, do not.
- FABRIC SOFTENERS — Some, like Downey, use dihydrogenated tallow dimethyl ammonium chloride from animals.
Alternative — See natural fabric softeners.
- SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER — Be sure yours are really cruelty free by looking for vegan brands.
Alternative — PETA keeps a list of cruelty free companies as does Vegan Beauty Review.
- TOOTHPASTE — Many have animal-derived glycerin (as opposed to plant-based, but you can’t tell by looking at the label), and may have been tested on animals.
Alternative — search for Vegan toothpaste online, or use baking soda with peroxide and salt. Don’t worry about flouride as it’s in the water and many foods.
- SUGAR — Ugh! I was stunned when I first heard white cane sugar is filtered through bones.
Alternative — Now I use brown sugar (check the label and make sure it’s not brown sugar made by adding coloring to cane sugar), or unrefined sugars like turbinado. When I want it to be fine in texture, I just spin it in a food processor for a few seconds.
The medical argument for animal testing doesn’t stand up. Even if it did, I don’t think we should kill other species. We think we’re so much better; I’m not sure we are. I tell people, We’ve beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn’t we be generous? I really do think it’s time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we’ve got to show that we’re kind.

Bile farming in Asia is still a huge problem and there are more than 12,000 bears being held in bile farms.
Bears are kept in tiny cages with barely enough room to turn around and bile is extracted from an open wound in their chests. This causes the bears a great deal of distress and pain and many don’t even know how to walk.
Anyone who’s spoken to me before will know how passionate I am about ending the suffering of bears in Asia particularly - They’re at such a disadvantage and there’s still so much we don’t know about the shy Sun Bears. WSPA and Free the Bears do incredible work on the ground in Cambodia and Laos, rescuing, rehabilitating and even releasing Sun bears, Sloth bears, Asiatic black bears and Moon bears.

In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.
