Dogs are Cats are not Republicans

Dogs do not care if you are rich or poor, fat or thin, fashionable or wear holy jeans. they like you, wag their tails at you and lick you if you let them.

Dogs just want to have fun, love to play in the moment and have quirky sense of humor. They do not discriminate against anyone.

Canines are adept at taking naps and eating, two of their favorite hobbies. They are part of the CCC, Canines Cuddle Creatively.

If you have a comfy bed or couch, dogs will hog it up and when you ask them to move, they will move their head or give you an eye roll.

A trained dog will come to you when called, sit stay or fetch upon command. others will ignore you and go their own way.

Pooches enjoy chasing cats, rabbits, birds, ducks, squirrels and other small furry creatures. And some even get along with other species.

If a dog does not like another dog, they will let them know with growls, barks and ferocious stares. They do not force their Live and LET LIVE ideology upon others.

Social pack animals, dogs follow the leader and go along with the crowd.

Dogs sniff out dangerous situations, illnesses, and drugs and have been known to save lives heroically. They do not ignore others who are sick or unhappy, they try to help whenever they can.

Canines are loyal creatures who go the extra mile for their best friends.

Dogs freely give love unconditionally.

A dog is happy chewing on a bone, small or large, big or little.

We have a dream…

my dog and i have a dream. she dreams about chasing cats and bunny rabbits and I dream about hot… oh not that kind of dream, she says… wouldn’t it be great in life if  you could tell the honest guys and gals from the dishonest guys and gals? well read on…

How would you feel if the group you were donating to because they promised to be there for the animals actually sent the neediest ones to a place which neglected, abused, and then killed them? How would you feel if the animal rights group you supported was using your donations to poison “healthy” and “perfect” animals? Would you be upset? Would you feel sick to your stomach? Would you feel betrayed? If you donate to PETA, HSUS or the ASPCA that is exactly how you should feel…

PETA-Dumpster-vs-Crate_edited-1

Ten out of ten pets surveyed indicated that they would prefer crate training to a ride in the PETA death van. Ten out of ten pets surveyed would prefer eating treats bought at the Piggly Wiggly over being thrown dead into the dumpster behind the Piggly Wiggly. Apparently, opposing No Kill shelter reforms isn’t crazy enough for them, the wingnuts at PETA also find it necessary to show how little they know about the care of pets that are actually, you know, still breathing, that they are campaigning against the use of crates. Above is an actual PETA ad that has been edited for truthfulness. ~Valerie Hayes

Let us abolish the pound!

Today, the number one cause of death for healthy dogs and cats in the U.S. is the local animal shelter. Moreover, the first time many animals experience neglect or abuse for the first time is at the very institution that is supposed to protect them from it—the local shelter. Had shelters never existed, and it was proposed that a system of abusive death camps be opened to round up and kill millions of animals every year, how many of us would support such a notion? How many of us would argue that the homeless animals for whom there was hope, whom we saw being fed, cared for and even adopted by our neighbors, would be better off entering a facility where they are likely to be abused and likely to be killed? In fact, over 150 years ago, when the impounding and killing of homeless animals was a new concept, the great Henry Bergh, founder of the animal protection movement in North America, fought the existence and proliferation of such institutions, arguing that stray dogs should be left alone, once famously asserting, “Let us abolish the pound!”

Twelve years ago, there were none. Today, 94 communities representing about 300 cities and towns across America have save rates between 90% and 99% and the numbers continue to grow. In fact, in 2012, over one new community per week achieved a save rate above 90%. The No Kill revolution is on the march.

Please join over 30 other speakers at the No Kill Conference in Washington, D.C. this summer as we celebrate those achievements and teach you how to do the same in your community.

What kind of world do YOU want to live in? A world where pit bulls are killed because of the way that they look? A world where the innocent victims of dog fights, the dogs, and abused plus responsible owners and their dogs are threatened, jailed or killed instead of the dog fighters and abusers being held accountable for their crimes.

What does your conscience tell you to do?

We are a nation of animal lovers, and we, and the animals we love, deserve better. We deserve shelters that reflect our progressive and compassionate values, not thwart them. We now have a solution to shelter killing and it is not difficult, expensive, or beyond practical means to achieve. Only one thing stands in the way of its widespread implementation: a deeply troubled and dysfunctional animal protection movement that undermines the effort at every turn. Through the No Kill movement, we can create a country in which it is illegal to kill animals who enter shelters. We can create a country in which children are raised with higher expectations for the treatment of animals—and an understanding and acceptance that animals have legal rights. And we can establish powerful advocates for the well-being of animals in every community by reclaiming the thousands of shelters across our nation, and reorienting them away from killing and back to their founding missions: to advocate for and save animals.
