BILLY HAS BEEN AT THE LA ZOO SINCE 1989 PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO SAVE BILLY'S LIFE! And send to everyone you know!!
Thank you from Voice For The Animals Executive Director and Founder, Melya
Thank you to all of our supporters for an incredible year!! You made it happen! Because of you we were able to expose animal cruelty at the LA Zoo and at LA Animal Services.
We exposed the truth about Billy, the male elephant at the LA Zoo, who is suffering tremendously.
Dr. Ensley, a world renown expert in elephants in captivity completed two reports that confirmed that Billy will die at the LA Zoo if not released to a sanctuary immediately .
We made a film showing the horrible conditions he lives in .
The LA Times editorial board agreed that Billy must be sent to the sanctuary .
The LA Times also printed two letters refuting the Zoo’s excuses about keeping him.
We initiated a worldwide petition asking for him to be sent to the sanctuary.
If Billy was a cat or dog, what is being done to him would be illegal. Why isn’t the same standard held for a captive elephant?
We filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Department of Animal Services for ignoring their own policy by refusing to return our two cats who were microchipped to VFTA. Our lawsuit will hold them accountable and force them to answer to the public and explain WHY they did not follow their own written policy which as employees of the city they are mandated to adhere to.
We adopted out several elderly cats who we rescued from dangerous situations:
Marilyn was on her way to the shelter when we interceded and took her in. Her previous owner did not like Marilyn’s personality! Now Marilyn is in a wonderful home helping her person with his homework.
Atticus and Dion, two Russian blues, were rescued from the shelter where they were deemed feral and scheduled to be euthanized. When we saw them, we immediately knew they were not feral, just scared. Now they are in a forever home with two sisters who adore them.
Because of your constant support, we are looking forward to a great year new year!!
We will be lobbying the City Council to send Billy to a sanctuary immediately before he dies at the L A Zoo.
We will be organizing a conference on the Cycle of Violence – from animal abuse to human violence in Brussels and then bring it to the USA. We are enlisting law enforcement, experts on child abuse, domestic violence, and District attorneys who specialize in prosecuting animal abusers.
None of what we do would be possible with YOU. We are deeply grateful for your support that allows us to reveal the truth and expose cruelty.
We wish you and our family a wonderful holiday season.
