"birds and squirrels and earth and sky"
I freakin love my dogs.
Holy fuck. I love my dog. She ain’t ever going anywhere.
Does anyone else see “Dedicated to Rambo May he live a thousand years” at the bottom? Because I can’t. I’ve just got a dog treat in my eye is all
Sea world should be wiped the fuck out
Seaworld, zoos, circuses
Please don’t compare zoos to sea world and the circus
zoos actually help animals and are preserving endangered species and a lot of them are nonprofit organizations
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
sign this or dieFree Him
Guys this is still ongoing !
Hey um so animal stuff doesn’t always get to me but when it comes to polar bears, it definitely does and the Assiniboine park in Manitoba is a great facility for him to be at seriously! That has been my favourite zoo since I was a child and seriously at this point, there are many zoos that have to be better than this.
NO POOR BBY ; A;
Wtf!! How can they keep doing it to this polar bear? Why hasn’t anyone done anything? Immediately going to sign! Everyone else should to! Don’t know if it will make a difference, but I have to try!
Argh! This angers me! I don’t even like polar bears, but I hate animal cruelty!
of course, not everyone can do all these things! but if you are concerned, here is a list of information and resources.

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website HERE.
It’s just a click… takes about 1 or 2 seconds.
there’s no pop-up ads or anything on the site
just click it once and you’re done
if all of my followers click, it’s more than a few thousand meals so.. please?
These days you can find pretty much anything processed, prepared, packaged and waiting for you on a store shelf. But your wallet isn’t the only one paying the price for such convenience — the planet is, too. Here’s how to go green and save green.(viaTumbleOn)

Breakfast pizza for dinner!
…for a Fluffy White Pizza Crust
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F / 45 degrees C) [Optional: sub in 1/2 cup of plain soy milk; this gave us a slightly thinner crust.]
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/4 tablespoons active dry yeast
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
…for the scrambled tofu
1 pound firm tofu, pressed
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups sliced mushrooms (fresh or canned)
1/2 onion, diced
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 cup tomatoes, diced*
1/4 cup corn (canned or frozen)*
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, divided
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon parsley OR 1 tablespoon chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
* Feel free to swap these out for your own favorite veggies – bell peppers, cabbage, etc.
…for the garlic sauce
2 tablespoons margarine
a dash of garlic powder
…for the pizza
Cheddar Daiya cheese, or the vegan cheese of your choice
Cornmeal or cooking spray with which to coat the pizza stone or pizza pan
1. To prepare the dough: stir the water, sugar and yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil and salt, as well as any extra spices or seasonings. Stir in the flour until blended. Form the dough into a small ball and let rest in large bowl, covered loosely with a towel, anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours.
2. About a 45 minutes before you’d like to start making the pizza, begin preparing the scrambled tofu. Lightly press the brick of tofu for five to ten minutes to drain the excess moisture. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook on medium for about ten minutes, or until the mushrooms begin to brown. Add the diced onion and continue to cook for another five minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic, tomatoes, and corn and continue to cook for another five minutes, or until the corn and tomatoes are tender.
3. As the veggies are cooking, place the tofu in a large bowl and mash it with a fork until it becomes crumbly. Add a tablespoon of the nooch and mix well.
4. Pour the tofu into the skillet and mix it in with the veggies. Reduce the heat to low. Add the rest of the nutritional yeast, soy sauce, cumin, turmeric, parsley/chives, and the salt. Mix well. Cook for another few minutes on low; continue to stir. When done cooking, remove from the heat, cover, and set aside.
5. When you’re ready to assemble and bake your pizza, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
6. Make the garlic sauce: in a small bowl, nuke the margarine a few seconds at a time until it’s melted. Add a dash of garlic and mix well. Set aside.
7. To assemble the pizza, start by spreading a dusting of cornmeal onto your pizza stone (or lightly coat your pizza pan with cooking spray). Using fingers dipped in olive oil (optional), pat the dough onto the stone, spreading it out evenly.
8. Using your fingers or a brush, spread the garlic sauce evenly onto the dough. Add a thin layer of cheddar Daiya, followed by all of the scrambled tofu, and a little more cheddar cheese to garnish.
9. Bake at 425 degrees, for between 15 and 20 minutes for a single pizza, or 30 minutes for two pizzas.
10. Enjoy often: for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
