Several immigrants, many of them children and young adults, who need regular treatments to stay alive that are only available in the US are facing deportation. In particular, I want to draw your attention to the case of Isabel Bueso. She and her family are not illegal immigrants. They were invited to this country from Guatemala 16 years ago when she was 7 to take part in clinical trials for Isabel's condition, MPS 6. These studies resulted in a treatment that keeps Isabel and others in this country with MPS 6 alive, and must be administered weekly. Now she has been told, for no sane reason, that she must leave the US or be deported, with no appeals process. Her treatment is not available in Guatemala. In other words, the Trump administration has decided to kill her. That is the fact of it. She is a courageous young woman who should be being honored for her part in saving the lives of others, including Americans.

Anyone with a shred of moral decency who hears about this must work to stop it. This is a matter of life and death. Anything you're doing that's not a matter of life and death can be de-prioritized. I have already contacted both of the US senators for my State, and the Immigration Services, and ICE, and will contact anyone else I can think of who is involved or stands a chance of exerting influence.

1. Save Chipper From a Life-Threatening Disease:


Chipper was rescued in Mesa, AZ after the shelter he was living at was under quarantine due to a parvo and distemper outbreak, leading to euthanization of all animals. Chipper had only been at the shelter for 48 hours, showing no signs of illness at the time of the rescue, However, a few days later, Chipper went from a happy, playful puppy to lethargic, so he was rushed to the ER. His compromised immune system and lack of vaccinations had made him vulnerable to a virus with no cure. Chipper was diagnosed with distemper, giardia and demodectic mange.

2. Save a Cat's Life for Only a Dollar!


Your gift, along with gifts from countless others, will make a very real difference to a cat who might not have made it otherwise. And it makes a "purr"-fect gift not only for the cat, but for the people who will discover their new cat is now a full-fledged, and much-loved, member of the family.

3. Help Needed NOW for Amazon Rainforest Fires


In the past three weeks, tens of thousands of fires have ignited in the Amazon Rainforest. Help protect the lungs of the Earth. As little as $1 protects 1 acre of land. The Amazon is one of the most crucial and vibrant ecosystems on Earth, but without our protection it could disappear forever. Your donation is urgently needed today.

4. Give Bunny and Her Puppies a Bright Future


Bunny was rescued by an Emergency Rescue Team in Leupp, AZ after a good Samaritan led the volunteers to her location. Bunny was injured, emaciated, and had dozens of skin sores and old wounds from a life of abuse and neglect. Despite her condition, her eyes filled with hope as her rescuers dug her from the dirt, wrapped her in blankets and drove four hours to freedom. One week later, she quietly gave birth to five healthy puppies.

Unfortunately, Bunny's journey to a healthy life is not over. She is currently battling Giardia and Ehrlichiosis, causing her to have diarrhea, vomiting, body aches, and a fever. Your gift will directly fund treatment that Bunny needs to survive.

Like The OA, Syfy's Krypton was recently cancelled after two seasons despite being a good show and clearly setting up multiple hooks for the next season (Seg-El and Lobo looking for Braniac, Nyssa on Rann in the middle of an invasion by Apokolips, Brainiac taking baby Jor-El to Earth, Doomsday crashing back to earth on Krypton). The planned spinoff Lobo was cancelled at the same time before it even began. I know Syfy has a bad reputation for cancelling shows before their time (The Magicians thankfully being the notable exception), but with a spinoff in the works I really thought Krypton was safe. Petition to renew Krypton and make sure Lobo does happen: https://www.change.org/p/syfy-save-krypton
There are many Animal Rescue and SPCA causes that need support this week. Please see all four links below.

Leia Was Thrown Away...

When an anonymous neighbor went to investigate the muffled yelps she heard from her backyard, she discovered little Leia, frightened and alone, buried inside a tote bag in a trash can near her house.

The 8-year-old Yorkshire Terrier spent her time in the intensive care unit when she arrived at the SPCA. Leia was so underweight that she needed to be placed on a monitored meal plan with special vitamins, all while battling severe dermatitis.

This little girl has a long way to go before she will trust humans again. You can help make sure she’s ready for her second chance at a happy life with your gift today: https://donate.yourspca.org/201908-rescue?erid=12680779&trid=bd57b44d-862e-4820-88ea-69930fe1c890

The new site Free the Ocean helps remove plastic from the oceans and coastlines. Plastic pollution is a really serious issue, not only for our oceans but also marine animals (and even humans): https://www.freetheocean.com/

Due to the high cost of basic necessities, shelters often have to limit the number of cats they can save. You can help!

Just $10 provides 100 bowls of food, 1 bed and 1 vaccination for a shelter cat.: https://store.theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com/products/64160-care-packages-for-shelter-cats?utm_source=ars-reminder&utm_medium=email&utm_term=08182019&utm_content=reminder-C0&utm_campaign=gtgm-64160-care-packages-for-shelter-cats&oidp=0x2a4868233aff887ac0a82937

This Man Chopped Off a Street Dog's Snout Because It Was Begging for Food. Sign to Demand Justice for this Horrible Act.

We are almost at a loss for words to describe this case of animal cruelty. But we will share it with you because it is so grotesque, so vile, that it demands attention and action NOW.

Brutal photos have surfaced of the chopped off snout of a poor street dog in the state of Sabah, Malaysia. The snout was found lying in the dirt, its nose pointing up at the sky, teeth bared. Just by looking at it you can imagine the pain the snout's owner must have gone through. After it was discovered, the story of how the dog was abused began to surface.

According to accounts, a drunk local decided to chop off the dog's snout "for fun" because it was begging him for food. One day the street dog was minding its own business, searching for food, trying to survive in the concrete jungle, doing what dogs do. The next minute the dog's life was changed forever.

Will you sign to demand punishment for the thug who did this?: https://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/618/244/205/?z00m=31930999&redirectID=2923016941

The dog was rescued by a local animal charity but because of its injuries, it is likely not to survive. Unfortunately, veterinarians are debating whether or not to euthanize the poor pooch to put it out of its misery.

Malaysian police are currently looking for the culprit but in a country where animal abuse punishments are notoriously lax, who knows what kind of punishment this thug will get unless we keep the pressure on the authorities.

Please sign the petition and tell Sabah State Veterinary Services and Animal Industry Department to find the person who did this and prosecute and punish them to the fullest degree under Sabah's animal welfare enactment.

Thank you,

Andrew M
The Care2 Petitions Team
P.S. Whoever did this must face consequences. Sign the petition.
