According to its own 2011 tax return, The Humane Society of the United States received donations of $122 million for the year and used $38 million or 31% on salaries, compensation, and employee benefits with 19 individuals listed as receiving compensation between $100,000 and $300,000. Additionally, $50 million or 41% of donations received were spent [...]
Some good news out of Ontario for two condemned young dogs. They’ve been shipped to the SPCA in Fredericton, New Brunswick. It’s a shame that Shawn Berry from the Daily Gleaner felt it necessary to end the story by quoting from the decision of the Ontario Court of Appeals judges. In my opinion, it is probably one of the most inaccurate and inflammatory statements ever put into print by a judge about “pit bulls”.
In 2008, HSUS spent just HALF of ONE PERCENT of its total budget on organizations providing hands-on care to dogs and cats.
I was in a bookstore yesterday browsing the pet section and came across Ingrid Newkirk’s book “The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights”. I didn’t buy it, although I still may. What I did do, however, was collect all my earlier articles on animal rights organizations. Here is what I’ve collected to-date.
I forgot a few quotes at the bottom of the last article, so here they are.
Note to pet owners: The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) do not care about you or your pet. In fact, the stated objectives of both organizations is the end of ALL pet ownership!
You’d think that, after the Michael Vick debacle, the so-called “Humane” Society of the United States might reconsider their blanket belief that all dogs seized from dogfighters should be killed. Well, apparently not!
There was a time when, if asked, I would have said that only licensed, ethical breeders of registered, purebred dogs should be allowed to breed, in order to eliminate backyard breeding and puppy milling. As with most absolutes, I have gradually been forced to re-examine that attitude, for a variety of reasons.I guess, first of [...]
I know some readers are having trouble wrapping their minds around the possibility that various animal rights organizations are not only anti-breeding, but can also be anti-<place breed name here>, anti-dog, and anti-pet. So, I’m going to try again. Not all animal rights organizations are BAD and not all of their members are BAD PEOPLE!! [...]
In a previous article, I mentioned the concept of dogs just being property, so Clinton Portis and Chris Samuels seem to think it’s okay to do what you want with them. I want to make sure that readers are perfectly clear where I stand on the issue of property, so that I don’t get lumped [...]
If I see one more newspaper article about impending anti-dog legislation describing opponents as “animals rights activists”, I think I’ll be throwing red paint on that reporter!To reiterate: Most animal rights organizations, such as PETA, have, as one of their ultimate objectives, the end of all pet ownership, regardless of the species or breed of [...]
I received a comment from Anonymous about my previous post, PETA Kills Animals!, stating that “the Center for Consumer Freedom is a front organization…(with) almost zero credibility”.I do not dispute this. Everyone has an agenda and CCF definitely has one. The following quote is from their “About Us” section: “The Center for Consumer Freedom is [...]
It’s been almost a month since my last post. To make up for that, I’ll quote an article that’s over nine months old.The Center for Consumer Freedom has been a consistent critic of extremist animal rights organizations and has been a valuable source of information regarding not only the terrorist measures to which these groups [...]
As anyone who has read some of my articles knows, I have an aversion to the term “euthanasia” when referring to the killing of dogs that fit a certain physical profile.Michael Bryant (Attorney General of Ontario), with the support of various Animal Rights groups, has repeatedly used the word to soften the impact of the [...]
I generally try not to plagiarize hard-working journalists nor duplicate the efforts of other writers. I prefer to link to their articles and let you get your info directly from the horses’ mouths, so to speak. An article in the Magic City Morning Star (Maine), however, caught my attention. In particular, the quotes at the [...]
In the past, I have written various e-mails and articles, although not through this forum, about the under-the-table, behind-the-scenes, and sometimes not so subtle, attempts by Animal Rights organizations to influence politicians, lawmakers, and law enforcers. The results of this influence peddling (and meddling) include: breed bans; breed-specific legislation in general; mandatory spay/neuter (often aimed [...]
