Tell Golden Ring Circus to Stop Exploiting Nosey, Who's Endured Painful Abuse for Years

Nosey has been denied adequate veterinary care, denied food, and shackled in chains so short that she barely could take a single step—but your actions are working, and minds are changing.

Bill Maher Goes Apolitical to Save Dogs in Distress at Texas A&M University

Bill Maher has made a career of pushing boundaries with his comedy and political commentary—and he also happens to be a strong supporter of animal rights. Remember the cruel cat laboratory at the University of Wisconsin–Madison? Bill’s wasone of the voices that brought much-needed public attention to the issue and, ultimately, helped PETA get that terrible lab closed down, ending the suffering of cats there.
Now he’s raising his voice once again—this time, for the sake of golden retrievers at Texas A&M University (TAMU) who are being bred to develop different types of muscular dystrophy, including Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which is particularly severe. These diseases ravage their bodies, causing progressive muscle wasting and weakness. The dogs may also have seizures and respiratory issues, and they often lose the ability to stand or walk. TAMU alumnus and Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill also sent a letter to his alma mater’s president in behalf of the dogs in distress there.

Bill Maher assails Texas A&M University's Joe Kornegay for his 35 years of deplorable breeding of and ineffective muscular dystrophy experiments on trusting golden retrievers.

The man in charge of the experiments is TAMU’s Joe Kornegay. He has been experimenting on dogs for 35 years. But animals are not ours to experiment on, and it’s past time that TAMU acknowledged this and took suitable action.
After decades of tests on generations of debilitated and suffering dogs, there’s still no cure or treatment to reverse the course of this terrible disease in humans. So children afflicted with Duchenne muscular dystrophy continue to suffer. Analysis of muscular dystrophy studies using dogs has shown that there are serious pitfalls when trying to apply those results to humans.
Cutting-edge techniques that don’t involve experimenting on animals are available: Using skin cells from muscular dystrophy patients to develop disease-specific cures, developing ways to grow healthy human muscle cells, and creating human-relevant drug-screening platforms have led to the development of more promising therapies.

What You Can Do

Please urge TAMU to close its dog laboratories, stop breeding muscular dystrophy–afflicted dogs, release all dogs for adoption into good homes, and redirect resources toward humane research methods.

Mohan the Tiger Denied Proper Veterinary Care at Sham Sanctuary

Video footage captured Mohan's walk, and it was clear that this geriatric tiger's every step was a struggle. One goose at this pseudo-sanctuary was even killed by a larger goose after they were separated by just a low fence, even though the owners knew that the birds were incompatible.

Calves Branding

Cows in Leather Industry Sometimes Skinned While Still Conscious

H&M claims that no animal should ever suffer in the name of fashion. Yet the company sells leather. Cows bred and killed for leather commonly endure branding, tail-docking, dehorning, and castration without painkillers—tell H&M to stop selling the skins of animals today.
