Michael Kors is going fur free. The American luxury brand announced today (Friday Dec 15, 2017) that it will no longer use animal fur in its products, with production being phased out by the end of December 2018.
The policy will apply company wide, including the JIMMY CHOO brand which Kors acquired in July.
Fashion should never have a victim.
Please boycott the companies still using skins, fur, or feathers.

Good morning everyone.
The most gentle cat / bird encounter I have seen in awhile.
To all the bird rescuers who bring in injured birds to heal. Please be careful of other pets that may not react this well to a visitor.
And thank you to everyone who ever saved a bird in need.
When I was a a young girl, my brother and I had to hide our stranded birds in my room and our rescues were kept a secret from our parents who would never have agreed to our young missions. 🤗🐈🕊️

I wish I could give some explanation as to why this trainer shoved her entire arm down into this captured dolphins mouth.
It’s completely shocking to say the least but this is the world that captive cetaceans endure for the entertainment industry. It’s cruel and horrific and with every ticket that people buy to watch captive animals perform is an animal who has been deprived of absolutely everything that matters to them.
Swimming with dolphins.
Trainer for a day.
Or just to sit in the stands to watch a show is animal cruelty. The dolphins are hunted in Taiji Japan. They go through a selection process and the younger more attractive dolphins are used as entertainers. The older family members are slaughtered right in front of the ones selected for someone’s BUCKET LIST.
If they survive the stress of the capture, the flight, and the swimming pools which they are dropped into, they are then trained to perform tricks well below their intelligence level.
Dolphins are very sensitive to their environments. They don’t belong in swimming pools. They belong in the ocean. Captivity is a death sentence while the oblivious audience claps along to whatever pop music is at the top of the charts. It’s completely insane and heartbreaking.
Please don’t support animals in captivity. Wild animals are not entertainers.

Meet Flick. I received a text message from a local farmer who has a fraction of a heart. He began to tell me about how he chased hunters off of his property so they couldn't shoot the deer who were passing through. I told him that one of my goals is to convert all three of his farm locations into sanctuaries for the same animals he butchers today. He said he would rather that but he doesn't think anyone would take him seriously since he's been in the business of meat and dairy for years. Anyway, I am personally grateful for anyone who reaches out to us about an animal in need - especially locally. This farmer explained that a mother had triplets and seemed to only be feeding two of the three. The one that was being left out was half the size of the other two. The farmer monitored the baby for a full day with no improvement. Upon that realization, he contacted me. Flick is one day old and he has a lot of spunk. He is very very very tiny. He should probably be double the size that he is currently. We will be keeping him warm, loved and fed around the clock for quite a while. Wish us luck. We were already exhausted before rescuing this little guy. I believe we will turn into zombies by Friday morning. Maybe sooner. 🖤 Note: The sweater isn't to make him look cute. It's to keep his chest and under side nice and warm.

This video has almost 2 million views. Chris Brown is clearly looking for attention and as if having a pet monkey isn’t bad enough, now he’s exploiting a horse who’s got to stand there and get painted on by his daughter who hopefully will grow up and become an animal advocate because she’s so ashamed of her father who supports animal cruelty and exploitation.
Animals are not here for our entertainment.
Seriously get a real hobby and one that involves no victims.
Luckily there are a lot of comments on his page that are very negative and many feel badly for the horse.
Personally, I think this guy has major problems, and too bad MONEY DOES NOT FIX STUPID. 🚫🚫🚫

David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust has successfully hand raised over 150 infant elephants and has accomplished its long term conservation priority by effectively reintegrating orphans back into the wild herds of Tsavo, claiming many healthy wild-born calves from former-orphaned elephants raised in their care.
When a new born elephant is orphaned, it’s often because it’s mother and family have been killed to serve the brutal ivory trade. For an elephant, family is everything. A calf’s very existence depends upon its mothers milk for the first two years of life.
If you need a Christmas gift idea for the elephant lover in your life, or for yourself, please click on @dswt, or my bio. The cost for 12 months of fostering is only a one time fee of $50.00. Baby elephants drink about 20 pints of milk every day 🍼🐘 so any donation is greatly appreciated.
Their website explains everything the Baby Elephant Foster Program includes.
Thank you and always #bekindtoelephants

Animals who are trapped in the wild can suffer for days from blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. They may be caught in steel-jaw traps that slam down on their legs, often cutting to the bone.
Please buy cruelty free alternatives. 🙏🏻

What are your thoughts?
Flat ground...Upside down tortoise!!!
Sounds like a business that sells tickets to showcase animals as living exhibits to me...
Tortoises will help each other back onto their feet but honestly, this seems staged.
Social media can be such a powerful tool for reaching others and sharing information you many never have come across but it’s also a platform filled with animal cruelty and sometimes its a platform where an animal is strategically placed into a situation just for a photo opportunity. A month ago, I came across a beautiful owl in flight over a flat snow covered field. Then I noticed the photographer had his camera perfectly in line with a little brown mouse. The next is obvious. The owl scooped up the mouse with its claws and flew away with his easy meal in super slow motion. It made for great photography, but the video capture cost the little brown mouse his life.
Sometimes social media is good. And other times it’s another platform for animals to be harmed and killed.
Please be sure to know the difference and question those who post things that you feel are inappropriate. I have been fooled a few times myself.
Poor animals. Always the innocent victims.

SCROLL 10 times.
Thailand is oozing with Elephant Cruelty. The amount of posts people share of their sick “bucket list” on social media is very hard to take.
To simplify this, anything unnatural is cruel. Elephants don’t paint pictures. They don’t give massages. They dont drink alcohol or belong on a beach unless with their herd and no handler with a bullhook. They don’t give rides or want to be painted.
These elephants used in the entertainment/tourism industry are put through a torturous training process call PHAJAAN or THE CRUSH. Baby elephants are stolen from their Mothers and tied up and left isolated. They are terrified. The worst hasn’t even begun though. They are beaten to near death and restricted any movement, food, water, sleep or any form of kindness. This torture lasts for weeks and many die during this torture.
Thats what they endure for someone’s bucket list. 🚨
We are human beings. We are supposed to be humane in our choices. This post shows various things we do for our pathetic entertainment at the expense of these innocent victims. This is their whole life. They are trained to be slaves and their eyes show how lifeless and detached they are.
They are psychologically destroyed. 🙏🏻
Please help me by searching hashtags #elephantride and tag at least one person to this post. I am sick of people being SO ignorant towards these majestic highly emotional beings. They have extremely strong family ties and the separation from their mother is hard enough. Add to that the beatings they endure regularly should be enough to end this social media platform where people post their animal cruelty pictures/ videos.
Please help me and tag others to this post.

Wildlife beings in the wild. They are beautiful wild animals, not trophies, nor are they entertainment for people to cuddle.
Wild cats raised by humans who are exposed to humans and used for social media fame often end up in the canned hunting industry and their lives end with a bullet. Everything in between is exploitation.
Please never support or donate to businesses that exploit, or fraudulently represents themselves as a rescue.
Sanctuaries focus on creating a wild like habitat free from celebrities, free from constant cubs coming and disappearing.
Please be a responsible animal lover and don’t be fooled by instafamous accounts.
Fame, doesn’t mean a thing when it comes to wildlife conservation and rescue.
Please do your research before participating or donating because some businesses are hurting the true wildlife conservationists, and it’s important to learn the differences. 🌅

Her baby means the world to her. A 22 month gestation period perfected by Mother Nature. It is not our right to seek, hunt, ride, or kill these majestic animals. A mother needs her baby and a baby needs their mother. This is life.
We sat for nearly an hour watching this family....until a Bull broke through the brush and disturbed them. Such a scene of peace and beauty shaded from the sun.

Scroll to end. Happy cats then UNDERFED, TERRIFIED cats at BJWT.
Animals are often a very good judge of character. Samson and Solomon are Savannah cats that belong to @lion_hearted_gurl
Like millions of other people, Andrea trusted BJWT to be a sanctuary and listened to her vet who suggested more space would be better for them. She made arrangements with Eduardo Serio-founder of Black Jaguar White Tiger to bring her two cats to Mexico. Once she realized things were not what they seemed, it was too late. Eduardo kept the cats inside a room with no enrichment and they never were given the life they were promised.
This next part is very hard to express into words... Eduardo Serio promised daily updates on the Savannah cats. He failed to provide Andrea with the updates. He blocked her and posted hateful videos to his followers about Andrea who had done nothing but ask for the updates he promised. They never signed any documents regarding ownership etc. This exchange was done as a tentative agreement pending how well the cats adjusted. The cats were kicked, underfed, and terrified of Eduardo. In one video as you scroll through, Solomon is extremely skinny and eating left over RICE. In another video, Solomon is getting angry at Eduardo. Eduardo’s acting like its the cats fault for being aggressive but the truth is, Solomon was acting out of frustration and he is clearly hungry and bored with absolutely no enrichment. Eduardo did several live videos and he even publicly gave Andrea’s home address AND phone number to his followers.
What happened next was a massive amount of hatred, death threats etc from BJWT followers. Andrea was asked to send $1600.00 to his corrupt organization. Eduardo publicly promised to return her cats. He of course did not hold up to his end of the agreement. He kept her money, and kept her cats from going back home. The last video she ever saw of her cats is the one where Solomon is skinny and eating a few grains of RICE.
PLEASE CONTACT ME PRIVATELY VIA DM WITH ANY INFORMATION ABOUT SAMSOM AND SOLOMON 🚨THERE IS A ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR REWARD FOR THEIR SAFE RETURN 🚨

Tiny Toto has stolen all our hearts, but Sala is particularly smitten! Despite the fact that she barely got to know her own mother – Sala was orphaned at just one week old – the kudu’s maternal instincts are strong and she has taken it upon herself to look after Toto. The baby dik-dik loves all the attention and is becoming rather spoiled!
We are currently raising Sala and Toto at our Kaluku Field HQ. When they’re old enough, both orphans will be reintegrated back into nearby wild herds, but between now and then, we foresee lots of pampering in their futures.

It's hard to take Luke seriously when his "angry voice" sounds like tiny squeaky hummingbird hiccups. ☺️😍 (Luke is the male with the completely red head) According to my rehabber friends: hummingbirds do not get the hiccups. If they did: I believe they would sound exactly like Luke yelling. (Thank you for weighing in on the hummingbird hiccup question! @wildsongwildlife @wildliferescuebc)feeders from www.hum-fi.com 🕊️❤️🕊️ filled with sugar water: 1 part white table sugar mixed with 4 parts water. In this case I used 1 Tablespoon of sugar and 4 Tablespoons of water to fill two hand held hum drum feeders.

Please swipe to the very end.
First of all. I get blocked everyday by people so I’m used to it. What I wasn’t expecting was to be blocked by someone who privately messaged me to thank me for researching BLACK JAGUAR WHITE TIGER.
She was a huge supporter/fan of Eduardo Serio and she was so disappointed when she realized things are not what they seem at BJWT.
Today I mentioned to Andrea @lion_hearted_gurl that I noticed I was blocked by this same account who thanked me for exposing bjwt only to find she blocked me so she could promote BJWT. The SCREENSHOT is in this post and notice @lion_hearted_gurl comment to Rhino1818 !!! Unbelievable!!!! 🚫
1). Black Jaguar White Tiger is registered as a ZOOLOGICAL ENTERTAINMENT FACILITY. Not a rescue.
2). Eduardo Serio is corrupt and comes from corruption. His uncle went to jail for Wildlife Trafficking.
3). Eduardo has a CITES PERMIT (also in this post) that allows him to export wildlife from Mexico to Columbia. Why is he exporting wildlife? Why does he have exotic animals onsite too? Wildlife trafficking is third after arms trafficking and drug smuggling. Its big business and the red flags are everywhere.
3). I have heard privately from many others who told me horror stories of this man that has left me sickened with how brutal Eduardo really is.
4). HE IS THE REASON the Columbian Lions were left to die. If his GO FUND ME wasn’t reported those lions would still be in tiny cramped travel cages to rot.
5). He doesn’t help wildlife. He’s hurting wildlife and encouraging cub petting.
6). Instagram hashtags now include #blackjaguarwhitetiger as an account that exploits wildlife.
7). And lastly, he has hurt many people. He’s not just an exploiter of wildlife. He’s caused someone I consider a friend great stress and I cannot wait for the day when everyone wakes up and sees the truth behind this fraudulent animal exploiter.
Please sign petition on my account and follow @lion_hearted_gurl for the truth about bjwt...
