• Help Local Dog Boarders Reduce Barking Mad Licence Fees
    We are micro-businesses and sole traders offering a very special, home-from-home, dog boarding experience for dog lovers. We are not massive kennel operators, yet the license fee doesn’t differentiate, and we are being asked to pay exactly the same fee as a Commercial Kennels. There are more than 110 micro businesses and sole traders across the Joint Public Protection Partnership area who may now be forced to close as a direct consequence of this license fee increase. We desperately don’t want to close because we are all passionate about the dogs we take care of and we pride ourselves in offering a unique boarding experience for our clients and their dogs. As an example of the license increase we are facing: for the financial years 2018 - 20, the Bracknell Forest renewal licence fee was £119 per annum. From this year (2020-21), the Joint Public Protection Partnership increased the fee by a massive 375% to a total of £570 per annum. The fine laid down by DEFRA, for failing to obtain a licence, is set at £500 which is less than the total cost of renewal! Such a large increase cannot be considered fair or justified and, is contrary to the principle that local government is there to help and support local businesses thrive. There was no consultation process with us as home boarding providers, and the Joint Public Protection Partnership did not provide affected businesses with any prior notification of the license fee increases. Many home boarding providers have a very low turnover, and are already struggling with a downturn in bookings caused by the Covid-19 pandemic; a significant number will be unable to pay. They will either be forced to cease trading or have to increase their prices considerably to cover this huge increase. And this is why it affects us all! Please sign this petition and help us to prevent this from happening.

  • Stop the barbaric use of choke and prong collars on dogs
    These collars are designed to control dogs by inflicting pain and discomfort if the dog pulls. They can cause serious physical and emotional damage including whiplash, spinal cord injuries, crushing the trachea and puncturing of the skin. The list is long and considering that there are many less invasive alternatives to addressing this problem it is an outdated and unnecessary practice. In short it is a form of torture which would not be tolerated if inflicted on a child but is lawful when used on a dog who, like a child, is totally dependent on an adult to meet their needs. Most dog owners consider them to be part of the family. Is deliberately inflicting pain on a family member acceptable in our society?

  • Stop the closure of our Zoos
    The Government wants all our zoos to close down indefinitely. Zoos in this country provide great care and protection to animals in their care, many of them at the brink of extinction. Alton Towers is allowed to open on the 4th of July. Most public parks and beaches are open, with many of them getting packed on warm days. Yet, our zoos which are generally vast outdoor areas, have been told to close down indefinitely. Zoos like Chester Zoo are doing hugely important conservation work, and are a major tourist attraction. Our children learn about wildlife animals by visiting zoos. Following 10 years of austerity with most children centres closed down, hundreds of children's services reduced or disappeared altogether, and now our children locked down and most of them out of school for more than 5 months in order to protect their grandparents, the closure of the zoos is a shockingly ill-informed decision that will further undermine the quality of life of our children and communities. Please help save our zoos by petitioning the government.

  • Disband all Mounted Units from Police Scotland
    Horses are strong and powerful animals that take years of training or “breaking in” to tame. Like any animal they are never 100% under control and nor should they be. The use of horses within the police force as a means of “crowd control” has and never will be acceptable. The unpredictability of an animal so large amidst crowds is reckless at best. For the safety of the animal and the general public we advocate for the liberation of all animals from public service and demand the Scottish Government start by reviewing the use of horses within the police force.

  • Drivers should stop once they hit a cat
    Because the cats have a family lt maybe a family with young children or for elderly or people with problems to keep them company and for them to get the news that their cat has been hit is very heartbreaking, if it was another drivers cat that got ran over by someone else they e be upset so I don't think it is right at all to have it that you don't have to stop. I really think drivers should stop and alert somebody or take them to the nearest vets

  • Ban the sale of animals on social media
    Animals are not commodities to be used to 'make an extra bit on the side' Although Facebook have renewed guidelines about selling animals, it is still rife on many popular selling sites and community websites. Selling animals in this way encourages impulse and casual purchases. Checks are not necessarily made on potential owners meaning animals can be subjected to inappropriate ownership or unsuitable conditions for their needs. The temptation of an 'easy sell' encourages 'hobby breeding' while rescue centres are full to bursting with animals needing homes. Social media and selling sites provide disreputable breeders with a means to reach the wider public who may not be informed or aware of the risk involved. There is no justifiable reason to sell an animal on a selling site. Rescue centres exist for the very purpose of helping people re-home unwanted pets or surprise litters. Professional breeders can sell through official websites. Please sign this petition to try and stop animals being sold in this casual and dangerous way. Thank you

  • Stop killing sharks
    I feel this is important because underneath our human bodies we are just like them we eat we sleep we kill we stay together. To kill a shark would be to kill a human example 'if you kill a human you may love damage to family and friends and loved ones,what's to say these sharks dont gave familys and friends and loved one. I have followed sharks all my life they can be the most gentlest creature if just watch them and approached in a calming matter they have no reason to cause you any harm. I see a lot of countries like cutting them up for soup'food'clothing or medicine I find it absolutely appalling what if that was you they were chopping up for food'clothing or medicine or what if it was a family member for example a mother'father'daughter'son'relative or friend you would be heart broken and you would want justice brought to the people that did it. Well now I feel that justice should be brought forward for the sharks dont see why a creatures life is worth more than any humans,we evolved around these creatures for millions of years and learnt to live with them but now people just want to use them for there parts. Soon there wont be any sharks around for people to look at or sea either in the wild or in captivity because the people of different countries wish to kill them all. So I'm asking the world to now notice this is wrong and help petition for a ban against the killing of sharks'take a look at yourselves you wouldent kill your family for items,well sharks have families to think of what your doing before it's to late Thank you I hope you listen Sincerely,Brenden skeet
