Well the Shelters are overflowing because PEOPLE have lost their jobs and their homes and their minds and they have abandoned their pets in apartments, on the streets, and at the shelters ...."Shelter" has become Death Camp for man's best friend. I could go on and on. I write this with passion and not intellect....I understand the odds and the problems and all of it But I don't care...this has to STOP ...Some Things are Just Wrong and this is one of them.
What happens to the animals is what the 1% wants to do with us make no mistake about it.
CarolynBBaker@ OccupyWallSt "4 Million dogs and cats are Executed in US each Year. New York's ACC are Kill Centers....Part of this problem is that people have lost their jobs and their homes and they dump their dogs and cats at ACC hoping that they will be taken care of INSTEAD THEY ARE EXECUTED BY THE HUNDREDS/THOUSANDS.
There is a cadre of Rescue groups and individuals who do their best to Snatch these animals off of Death Row...but lets say there are 20dogs to die we can save 5 ....15 dogs of which 12 have no more than a cold if that ....Are Killed. The people just brought down a bill supported by ASPCA New York Assembly Bill A05449A, which would shorten the hold period (so if your dog was lost by the time you got to the shelter the dog is dead) and add psychological pain as a Kill buzz word. We should all be Executed by these standards.
We need Occupy Wall Street to Occupy the death chambers....bring in food and supplies and help the volunteers care for the animals....bring in Occupy Vets to help care for the animals and bring the press in to EXPOSE this holocaust.....Maybe full tilt on the worse one (Brooklyn) and small watch group at the others occupying the death chambers so they don't transfer dogs to Kill. This needs to be done so that the animals don't suffer ....that people can still adopt...rescue/foster...maybe work with some of the advocate suggested rescue groups...
What they do to the animals they will do to us. I am in Los Angeles...lala land....NY has the balls to pull this off and then maybe it would take off around the country and these dogs would not have died in vain or to make "soap"! "
PS. The ASPCA whose fabulous office is close to the Manhattan shelter...is the biggest POS....they do massive publicity of stopping puppy mills etc. but if those dogs get into ACC shelters they die...They support legislation to Kill quicker and they unite with Animal Abusers....and they use donations for heavy overhead!....Somethings Just Aren't right
"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals... In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth." Henry Beston
PS. 2/24 Susan Chana Lask, Esq. I said it before and I'll say it again; for every puppy and dog they've killed, we will give them a name, and represent them by name in court. As of today, I'm behind and on NYC's Death Row Dogs issue. HELLO AC&C, MEET SUSAN CHANA LASK AND ALL THE THE DOGS YOU EUTHANIZED THIS YEAR.
Like I said all the balls of the country are in NY...please export used ones...especially to Cali!
