  First they Came for the Cows: In 2006 a USDA mandate called National Animal Identification System (NAIS) came to the attention of a middle-aged homesteader in NW Vermont and she finds herself thrown into the role of a reluctant activist. First They Came for the Cows is a fictionalized account of her experience. Some churches are using First They Came for the Cows for their book clubs. Good Christian fiction can be hard to come by, you know

 Remo Raccoon To provide useful, true information so that everyone who loves Raccoons can make an informed decision about having a PET RACCOON. This is one of the most comprehensive sites on raccoons - if you need any info, this is where to go...

Raccoons Raccoons are fascinating animals. They are intelligent , handsome , cute and very entertaining. Yet they are also very misunderstood by a large number of people. Often this is because of misinformation and "horror stories" about them. I have created this section, in hope that I can provide some information to help to eliminate the misinformation and dispel the horror stories in hope that by learning the truth about them people will gain a new respect and admiration for them.

The World Wide Raccoon Web Welcome to the WORLD WIDE RACCOON WEB, where I pay tribute to The Raccoon, my favorite creature, my favorite companion, and one of my greatest inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!

Granny Warriors:  Worlds longest Bull Ride to bring awareness about NAIS. "I am a Christian, I am an American, I am a patriot, I am a wife, I am a Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. I have raised my family and let the news of the country and world slide by with not much notice as my life has been a busy one. I became upset when we were told that laws were being passed that would prohibit the ownership of certain animals which I happen to own. I went on the warpath, and while on that path fighting for my rights I learned so much that is so disturbing. Many of you know already about the different sects that are taking away our rights every day one by one. I did not. My education was a scary one and it still is as I find new information every day which scares me, not for myself, I have very little time left but for my children and grandchildren. They deserve to live in a free country, that respects their rights and protects them from abuse from the government itself. "

If you own a domestic or exotic animal - please join Phoenix Exotic Wildlife Association, Inc.  This is a group of private owners from all across America which includes individuals, sanctuaries and breeders.
They are an organization of active members working to protect and maintain the rights of private ownership through responsible behavior.  We need to organize to stop groups that want to ban ownership of our beloved animals and let the government take over. Click here for more info

If you own a domestic or exotic animal go to Exotic Law for information on NAIS!!! To learn more about NAIS, and what it means for farmers and consumers, visit Liberty Ark Coalition

R E P O - PAC Welcome to our web site, enjoy the time and learn a little about REPO-PAC Inc.. Our immediate goals are to promote Private Ownership of all exotic animals and show our respect for these animals. Our Group is working every day to protect your rights to own the pet of your choice.
