Levy's mum fell from the back of a truck and gave birth to him on the side of the road. A truck driver drove past, stopped to move the dead body and found new born Levy curled up next to her being attacked by crows.
Levy went to live with Rachael when he was 2 weeks old (he was still covered in scabs from the crows). The first night she had to sleep in the spare bed with him and "he woke me up every hour!!" She bottle fed him every 2-3 hours and took him everywhere.
He loves to follow Rachael around, walks on a lead, sleeps inside, plays with the dogs, chases the cat's and head butts them, loves scratches and weetbix and chews on absolutely everything.
His extended family consists of 4 cats, 3 dogs, 1 pig, 1 bird, 6 chooks, 5 horses and 7 sheep!
We believe in celebrating success and wins along the way. Some recent achievements include:
- In November 2011, we created a Human Chain event and so many supporters turned out that they were able to straddle the Stirling Bridge across the Swan River from the East Fremantle side all the way to the North Fremantle side!
- In August 2011 we organised a rally in Fremantle as part of a national rally that was called by Animals Australia and the RSPCA. An estimated 1500 people turned up to show their opposition to the live export trade.
- After successfully lobbying Fremantle candidates for local government, in 2010 we worked with the City of Fremantle council to achieve a resolution stating that live exports should be phased out, resulting in lots of media from all over the world.
- We then held an event in October 2010 in conjunction with the City of Fremantle and WSPA which brought together all levels of Government, processors and unions to talk about the economic impact the trade has an employment and the economy. Over 250 people attended and the event resulted in Australia wide media
- In 2010 we presented our petition to the WA State Government which resulted in a Public Hearing. This in turn has brought to light the inadequacy of the monitoring of the live export trade
- Whilst the community is already very much on side, we continue to reach out to as many people as we can, get them involved and active
- We have continued to lobby Politicians and asked our supporters to do the same via meetings and emails
- We have been the recipient of several Voiceless grants, which have enabled us to undertake several additional campaigns
Stop Live Exports (formerly People Against Cruelty in Animal Transport) has been incorporated since the mid nineties. We would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all the previous committee’s, campaigners and volunteers that have got us to where we are today.
About Stop Live Exports
Click on the tabs below to view information:
Stop Live Exports is committed to ending the export of live animals for slaughter.
We were founded in the mid-nineties under the name of People Against Cruelty in Animal Transport (PACAT). In 2008, we decided to change our name as our focus is on ending live exports, although we do get involved in other transportation and animal welfare issues.
Our members come from all walks of life, including:
- Local residents disgusted with the stench, road noise and dust from the trucks, as well as the sight of distressed animals.
- Former meat workers who have lost their jobs to the live export trade as well as current meat workers
- People who are concerned about animal welfare
- Community leaders who see the expansion of the chilled meat trade as a much better alternative to live exports
- Farmers who are concerned about how their animals are treated once they have left their care.
The common goal we all share is the end of live animal export.
Stop Live Exports is coordinated by part-time Campaign Manager, Katrina Love and a volunteer committee which oversees the strategic direction of the organisation.
