Petition for Animals in South Africa

Petition for South African Animals
( In loving memory of Maggie )
More info HERE



We are aware that a huge amount of petitions have been sent out regarding animal rights BUT this petition is one with a difference and will be submitted to parliament once we receive your signature, showing your support for something that really is quite bizarre…. .

Did you know that animals in South Africa are not recognized as sentient beings. This means they are classified as objects, and therefore have no rights

In recent times, Southern Africa has seen a huge upsurge in people involved in the animal rights movement, all calling for animals to be recognized as sentient beings. At the moment, most constitutions recognise animals as inanimate objects, incapable of feeling pain, terror or having any kind of consciousness. 

Difficult to believe we know but sadly this is the case. We have been wondering what it means then when an animal lets out a cry of pain or is clearly shaken from abuse!  

Just the other day we all heard about:

Lucy who was tied to a railway line, but was luckily saved minutes before the train rode over her again. (More info HERE)

Then there was Jack, who was buried alive but luckily was also saved.

How about the little guy who was beaten to death by a spade over this past weekend. (More info HERE) The list can go on and on............... 

The abusers may get caught and then what:  A slap on the wrist and a small fine… 

This is what our plea to the Government is:

To ensure that animals are regarded as sentient beings:  Capable of perceiving and feeling things.

To punish animal abusers more severely which will make them think twice before carrying out the heinous acts that they do.

For animals, as sentient beings, to be afforded the right to life, dignity and welfare.

The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa states the following:

South Africa's Constitution is one of the most progressive in the world and is based on the values of dignity, equality and freedom. 

Why then, can’t this be applied to animals too who live, breath, feel love and pain as we do ?!? 

Samantha Liddell and Sandra Hill, (co-founders of F.F.A.R.) ask that you please add your name to this petition to assist us in this cause.  Those of you who know us personally will know where our passion lies and will also know that once we have your support, we will take this all the way.  

Thank You in advance and lets stand together and keep positive in helping those who need us to speak on their behalves !! Please sign this petition below and forward this page/url onto ALL animal lovers as we need at least 10 000 signatures!!
