Help Stop the Canadian Seal Slaughter!
By the end of the hunt, more than 300,000 seals are expected to be clubbed or shot to death
by fishermen who hunt seals off-season to pick up extra cash by selling their skins.
Almost all of their victims will be babies -- some as young as 12 days old. Please
sign the online petition and do whatever else you can to spread the word and help these
Support is still needed for animals hurt and stranded by Hurricane Katrina
and HSUS and other animal welfare organizations are still helping.

Thank you to Cherie for posting this information on the
Clan of the Cavecat mailing list.
On May 22, 2005 the Chapins, a kindly couple out for a drive in Uxbridge MA,
took it upon themselves to rescue a cat
who had been tortured and burned by the side of the road.
When they got him to Tufts (Cummings) Vet School they learned that unless they took
financial responsibility for him, he would be put to sleep. Despite the fact that he
had just recently lost his job, Mr.Chapin and his wife agreed to pay all expenses.
Since May 22 "Phoenix" as the Chapins have named him, has run up bills in excess of $2500
and his survival is still in question.
The article I read was in the Worcester Telegram May 31 on page B4.
News Update June 2, 2005: A fund has been set up at the bank below for anyone wanting to contribute to help pay the
vet bills for this brave little cat.
The Chapins felt he deserved a chance to live because he has shown such a strong will to survive.
He is still in intensive care at Tufts Vet School
200 Westboro Road
North Grafton, Massachusetts 01536).
Please help if you can and pass this information along so that anyone wanting to contribute knows where to send donations.
