Partners + Napier’s sister agency in Australia reached out to ask for help in any way possible, so instead of a typical agency review of Super Bowl spots, the team decided to take action instead.”

— Partners + Napier Chief Creative Officer Rob Kottkamp

ROCHESTER, NY, USA, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With “Superb Owl” being the most mistyped online search term around the Super Bowl, Partners + Napier is introducing @SuperbOwl_Saves via Twitter during the Big Game on Feb. 2 to help aid Australian wildlife affected by that country’s devastating bushfires.

Superb Owl is a part-time ad connoisseur, full-time humanitarian. This internet meme turned activist will support his fellow animals across the sea by donating his time to review Sunday’s best spots – and help raise money for World Wildlife Fund’s Bushfire Emergency. Follow along @SuperbOwl_Saves.

So why Superb Owl? There are 11 species of owls in Australia, plus thousands of other animals impacted by the fires who desperately need help.

“Partners + Napier’s sister agency in Australia — Dig + Fish — reached out to ask for help in any way possible, so instead of a typical agency review of Super Bowl spots, the team decided to take action instead,” said Chief Creative Officer Rob Kottkamp.

Following are a few sample tweets primed to take wing during the Super Bowl based on the pre-release of some of the spots. “Mostly the reactions of the Superb Owl will be in real time as the unexpected always unfolds during an experience like this,” added Kottkamp.

– Actually, @reeses, I was partially raised by wolves. How about we help WWF save our dingo cousins from the bushfires? #SuperbOwlSaves #ReesesTake5 #Reeses

– Yes, @discovercard. Now, let’s say the same when it comes to helping WWF help the animals of the bushfire. #SuperbOwlSaves

– Ok, @google. Once our tears dry up, let’s all remember to help WWF wipe out the bushfires. #SuperbOwlSaves

Chews A Puppy, Inc. of Ocoee announces their list of most requested breeds

Chews A Puppy

Chews A Puppy

The most popular dog in the country is the Labrador Retriever, followed by the German Shepherd, the Golden Retriever, the French Bulldog, and the Bulldog.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Owning a dog has never been more popular in the United States and in the State of Florida. With statistics claiming that more than 38% of US consumers own at least one dog, it is no wonder that pet retailers such as the popular Chews A Puppy in Ocoee are thriving and building upon sales in dog specialty merchandise and of course, adorable puppies. With hundreds of dog breeds available to consumers across the country, the results of which breeds many Floridians request doesn’t seem to follow the same trend as the rest of the nation.

According to the American Kennel Club’s most recent results of registration applications, the most popular dog in the country is the Labrador Retriever, followed by the German Shepherd, the Golden Retriever, the French Bulldog, and the Bulldog. Floridians that reach out to Chews A Puppy don’t seem to follow that trend however. According to Chews A Puppy, the most popular breed requested by their customers in 2019 was the Golden Retriever, followed by the Yorkshire Terrier, the Rottweiler, the Maltese, and the Dachshund. Interestingly, the sturdy Labrador not only didn’t make the top five on the list for Chews A Puppy, it didn’t even place in the top ten. The same could be said for the Yorkshire Terrier, this petite dog was ranked number two on the Chews A Puppy list but ranked in tenth place on the A.K.C. list.

Regardless of which breed makes the list of top requests by consumers, Chews A Puppy has trained staff to guide their customers in their quest to find the right dog to fit your lifestyle. According to the staff at Chews A Puppy, it isn’t unusual for visitors to come in interested in a specific breed that they think is right for them but have a change of heart when presented with the realities of the needs of the breed that may not fit in well with their lifestyle. Training the #3 Rottweiler, grooming the #2 Yorkshire Terrier, exercising the #1 Golden Retriever, these are just some of the important aspects of pet ownership that staff at Chews A Puppy explain to customers interested in taking home a puppy. As a visitor to Chews A Puppy, the appeal of any of the breeds mentioned above is undeniable. One look into any puppy’s soulful eyes is enough to melt your heart, and many families that visit this specialty retail shop experience the joy of selecting their newest family member with delight and excitement.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: U.S. Reps. Charlie Crist and Guy Reschenthaler Introduce Petfax Act to Protect Pets and Consumers

The Petfax Act

Most dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where the dogs are treated like a cash crop. ”

— Holly Gann, director of federal affairs at Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today U.S. Representatives Charlie Crist (D-FL) and Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) introduced legislation in the U.S. House recognized as the “Petfax Act” to mandate honesty and transparency in the commercial sales of dogs and cats and crackdown on cruel “puppy mills”– large commercial dog breeding operations that breed high volumes of puppies to sell at pet stores and across the internet. It is the third anti-puppy mill bill introduced in this Congress – an indicator of the broad concern about the systematic mistreatment of dogs in large-scale commercial dog breeding operations.

Over 100,000 mother dogs are forced to suffer in puppy mills where they are forced to spend their entire lives in barren cages without ever touching a blade of grass. Horrific, painful injuries are commonplace and frequently go untreated. Puppies often become sick due to the unsanitary conditions of mills and long-distance transport to pet stores where they are sold to unsuspecting customers. It is not uncommon for pet stores to deny that the dogs come from puppy mills. Current laws barely meet survival standards, fail to adequately protect animals and consumers, and allow violators to continue renewing their license.

“Most dogs sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where the dogs are treated like a cash crop,” stated Holly Gann, Director of Federal Affairs for the Animal Wellness Foundation and Animal Wellness Action, “If you buy a car, you can get a full history from Carfax; but when it comes to purchasing a puppy, sellers generally won’t provide information about where the dog came from or the dog’s medical history.”

“Welcoming a new pet into your home is a decision rooted in love. Pet owners deserve the peace of mind that their new family member wasn’t abused or mistreated by breeder or seller,” said Rep. Crist. “Requiring a Petfax increases transparency, decreasing the potential for animal abuse, a win-win for all parties involved.”

“Too many animals suffer from inhumane conditions in our nation,” said Reschenthaler. “The Petfax Act of 2020, bipartisan legislation I’m introducing with Rep. Crist, will better protect dogs and cats from neglect and abuse. By improving transparency and providing consumers with more information, including the source of their pet and its record on animal welfare inspections, we can hold irresponsible sellers of dogs and cats accountable. Given the proven ties between cruelty to animals and child and senior abuse, I will continue fighting to strengthen protections for our nation’s pets.”

The Petfax Act would:

Require that sellers of dogs and cats disclose certain information to a customer about the animals, including information identifying the dealer who bred the animals, the number of dogs bred and sold by that dealer over the past two years, a listing of any violations the dealer has had in the past two years, and health information about the animals, including whether a veterinarian was seen, vaccinations administered, and congenital disease. The Petfax Act would make it illegal for a seller, such as a pet store, to misrepresent the source of a dog or cat, including misrepresenting whether the animal came from a mill.

Require that animal welfare inspection records are reinstated on the USDA website, so that the public can look up a breeder prior to purchasing a dog to see if the breeder has violations. These records were previously available until being taken down by the USDA in 2017, eliminating transparency and allowing mills with violations to have no accountability.

Similar to another bill in Congress – the Welfare Of Our Friends (WOOF) Act – the bill closes a loophole that allows mills with violations to continue operating. The bill prohibits USDA from issuing or renewing a license to a dealer who has had a suspension within the past 10 years. It also prevents a license from being granted to the immediate family member of a dealer who has had their license suspended or revoked, to someone who resides at the same address, or to an entity where the dealer holds an ownership interest.

The Petfax Act for honesty in pet sales is the latest in local, state, and federal legislation to root out puppy mills. Two other bills have also been introduced in Congress: The WOOF Act would address loopholes to stop puppy mills with suspensions from continuing to operate, and the Puppy Protection Act would increase the standards of care for mother dogs kept in these mills. Over 300 localities across the nation have adopted legislation to prevent pet stores from selling puppies that come from puppy mills, and California and Maryland have adopted similar state legislation, with many more to follow.

The Animal Wellness Foundation (Foundation) is a Los Angeles-based private charitable organization with a mission of helping animals by making veterinary care available to everyone with a pet, regardless of economic ability. We organize rescue efforts and medical services for dogs and cats in need and help homeless pets find a loving caregiver. We are advocates for getting veterinarians to the front lines of the animal welfare movement; promoting responsible pet ownership; and vaccinating animals against infectious diseases such as distemper. We also support policies that prevent animal cruelty and that alleviate suffering. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

Animal Wellness Releases Anti-Cockfighting Ad To Run During Super Bowl Broadcast on Guam

Animal Wellness Super Bowl Ad

The ad is a direct appeal to the people of Guam to help us root out cockfighting on the island because it is illegal, inhumane, and bound up with gambling. ”

— Wayne Pacelle, president of Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Animal Wellness Foundation (AWF) and Animal Wellness Action (AWA) today provided a preview of its 30-second television advertisement to air during Sunday’s Super Bowl on Guam. The ad features two Guamanians of Chamorro descent who describe cockfighting as “about gambling, not about our culture” and ending “the medieval practice of having animals fight and die for our amusement.”

A copy of the ad can be viewed by clicking here.

The ad will first air during the Super Bowl (Monday morning, Chamorro Time Zone), on FOX 6 and continue broadcasting throughout February on other television programs and networks. Animal Wellness is also running a heavy rotation of radio ads on KSTO, KISH and KTKB also throughout February. The groups previously placed a series of full-page newspaper ads in The Guam Daily Post and Pacific Daily News.

“The ad is a direct appeal to the people of Guam to help us root out cockfighting on the island because it is illegal, inhumane, and bound up with gambling,” said Wayne Pacelle, president of Animal Wellness Action. “We know that the vast majority of citizens on Guam support our position – we just need to activate them so this criminal activity is no longer tolerated.”

The ads highlight that a poll conducted by Market Research & Development on Guam determined that 62 percent of Guamanians favor the federal ban on cockfighting. The television spot also touts the Animal Wellness rewards program – a $2,500 reward for any individual who provides critical information that results in a successful federal prosecution of an individual or set of individuals who violate the federal law against animal fighting.

Recently, AWF and AWA revealed that 137 individuals imported nearly 9,000 fighting birds onto Guam over the last three years. The top 10 importers of fighting animals on Guam received about 60 percent of the nearly 9,000 fighting birds. The top five exporters — working from Oklahoma, California, Hawaii, North Carolina, and Alabama — accounted for 52 percent of all cockfighting roosters sent to Guam.

Mr. Pacelle wrote to Guam Department of Agriculture Director Chelsa Muna-Brecht on two occasions to ask that she establish new protocols to forbid imports of fighting birds masquerading as “brood fowl.”

While the latest upgrade of the federal law forbidding cockfighting on Guam and in other U.S. territories took effect on December 20th, previously enacted provisions of the animal fighting statute starting back to 2002 (with felony provisions adopted in 2007) explicitly outlawed any shipment of fighting animals across state or territorial lines. The federal statute forbids the use of the U.S. Postal Service for these purposes, yet the birds inspected by Guam, according to sources, came through transports conducted through the U.S. mail.

AWF and AWA have set up www.endcockfighting.org as a comprehensive resource about the subject and an action center for citizens who want to help combat these animal cruelty crimes.

Acquisition Opportunity – 50mw Woody Biomass Power Plant

Woody Biomass Plant – Lufkin, TX

50mw Biomass Plant

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, USA, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A recently built 50MW woody biomass plant, is now available to be acquired free and clear at a steep discount to new construction. The plant is located in Lufkin, Texas.

The plant was originally constructed and commissioned as a merchant facility in August 2011, and most recently was in operation through March 2015 by a world-renowned operator. Due to unfavorable economics within the ERCOT energy grid, the plant was professionally idled and continues to be preserved in a dry lay-up state. The plant is quite new, having generated the equivalent production of only approximately 4.5 months of run time at 85% capacity. Around the clock supervision and security have been onsite throughout to ensure proper maintenance and preservation procedures are performed.

Construction of a new biomass plant is costly, often pricing woody biomass out of competition when compared to other feedstocks. Acquiring this plant at such an attractive price creates new market opportunity that would not exist otherwise, such as disassembling and relocating the plant to a different location.

Key statistics of the plant:
• 50MW net capacity
• General Electric turbine/generator
• Vibrating grate technology
• Detroit Rotostoker/FSE Boiler
• Built in 2011, last operated in March 2015
• Approximately 135,000 MWh production history
• Comprehensive data available for due diligence efforts
