Circus Vazquez elephantRead About IDA's Plans For 2011

Animal suffering and abuse don't disappear during bad economic times - in fact, they increase. In this economy, things are even worse for animals. That’s why we're asking you to please continue your support of IDA.

We have always refused to compromise our principles by accepting funding from corporate giants that help to institutionalize animal abuse and exploitation. And last year, nearly 85 percent of every donation we received went directly to programs and rescues. We're proud that, in 2010, Charity Navigator gave IDA their coveted 4-Star Rating. Your donations to IDA don't go to fancy office buildings or big salaries - your donations are put to work for animals.

Please click to read all about IDA's plans for 2011. We hope you'll be inspired to remain onboard, remain active, and continue your support of IDA.

Hope Animal Sanctuary rescues more dogs!IDA's Hope Animal Sanctuary Seizes Neglected Dogs

Last week, our Hope Animal Sanctuary in Mississippi helped seize five dogs from an unoccupied mobile home. The dogs had been locked in the mobile home for months, fed occasionally, had no water, and lived in their excrement. The woman responsible for the dogs has been a subject of IDA seizures in the past.

According to Doll Stanley, Director of Hope Animal Sanctuary, “situations like this are common. Lonely people who believe they love animals pick up, or take in wandering strays and think they are confining them for their protection. This person is a classic hoarder. We are thankful that this time there weren’t 28 dogs like we seized the first time, or 9 like we took last summer.” The dogs will benefit from the partnership we have developed with the Mississippi Animal Rescue League, who took one dog, and others will go to foster homes.

BLM photoIDA Lawsuit Challenging Wild Horse Roundup Now In U.S. Court Of Appeals

Last week a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in a lawsuit filed by IDA, Dreamcatcher Wild Horse & Burro Sanctuary, and others against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), challenging last year’s Twin Peaks wild horse and burro roundup. The courtroom was filled to capacity with horse supporters, requiring a second room with a video monitor for the overflow crowd.

The Twin Peaks Herd Management Area is located in both Lassen County and Washoe County, Nevada. A total of 798,000 acres are managed for wild horses and wild burros. Although the Twin Peaks roundup has already occurred, a favorable ruling could set a precedent that could force the BLM to fundamentally change its mismanagement of wild horses and burros.

Pigs in South Korea buried aliveSouth Korea Buries A Million Pigs Alive - Contact Government Officials

Due to a massive outbreak of foot and mouth disease, South Korea killed a million pigs by burying them alive. Counties with a case of foot and mouth are unable to export the animals or meat, so the South Korean government decided to throw the animals into mass pits for a slow, cruel death. This horrible act is in violation of international guidelines on humane culling, which the South Korean government endorsed five years ago. Please contact the South Korean Government:

Great Minds Think Alike - Happy Birthday Albert Schweitzer, Born January 14, 1875

Albert Schweitzer was one of history's greatest theologians, philosophers, and physicians. He won the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of "Reverence for Life." Schweitzer condemned the mistreatment and killing of animals in entertainment. He considered hunting a mental aberration and wanted the study of ethics to deal with animals as well as humans. Two of his most famous quotes speak for animals: 

"Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace."
