Ricardo, his wife Mary, and their two children
Ricardo Cote, animal rescuer, father of two, and loyal husband, needs our help NOW.
This story is extremely close to my heart- Ricardo is our friend’s husband. He only has one week before he is supposed to be deported.
A baby born from his mother’s rape, Ricardo’s grandparents viewed him as an embarrassment and kept him in a cupboard, away from human interaction or compassion, until age seven. His mother finally rescued him and took him to the United States, where he learned to communicate with humans. Now, 42 years later, the US government is trying to send him away from his wife, children, and troupe of rescued animals.
Some of Ricardo’s many, many rescues, whose fates will be unknown if he is deported.
PLEASE take a moment to sign & share this petition. Ricardo is an inspiration and the embodiment of the American dream. Let’s save him.
If you missed our recent post, here’s the short version: True Religion, a brand that once promised the Humane Society of the United States it was completely fur-free, and a company that prides itself in American-made materials, is selling raccoon dog fur from China! (which, as you know, is home of the world’s worst animal cruelty!)
We’ve heard their CEO, Jeff Lubell, is a beloved and well-respected guy. I have to believe this news will affect him. So please, leave a polite comment for Jeff about how YOU feel about True Religion’s decision to sell dog fur.
