It may not be eloquent, or politically correct, but it IS full of passion, intensity, and the truth:
I hope you enjoy and share with others.
I also hope that it inspires you to become an active No Kill Advocate.(http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org)
I present to you:
Life Is Precious To Us All
My name is Thomas, and I have a story to tell
Sadly, it’s not a happy one, as I tell this story from my cold, damp prison cell
I am sitting here, on death row, although I have not committed any crimes
I am forced to sit in this awful place, to nevertheless do the time
I look at everyone around me, and I see fear in their faces
Fear of the mean men who walk by and mock us and force us to retreat even further back into these already confined spaces
I am in a place that is known as a death camp
A place where they kill so freely, to them it’s the equivalent of turning off a lamp
They couldn’t care less about us here, to them we are “things”
If you could see the cruelty, the death that happens here, it would tug heavily on your heartstrings
The other day a nice family came in here, and when they saw what goes on
They mentioned a German dictator, a Nazi killer, who is now gone
They called him “Hitler”, and he operated death camps, until a new day dawned
Until those who believed in love and compassion fought him and made sure that he was gone
We sit here waiting, waiting, waiting, for that time to come
When those who believe in love and compassion will rescue us…will they ever come?
Or are we doomed to die here, with no hope of getting out safe and alive
Please come save us, and please don’t take too long to arrive
We dont have much time, with the passing of every minute, our chances of surviving decreases
They have played judge, and jury over our lives, their arrogance never ceases
And they are preparing to play executioner, and at any moment, we will hear their footsteps walking down the hall
As we pray and hope that they don’t stop at our cell, and yell out their lethal call
“Give me a hand, this one looks scared” they say
“Let’s get this over with, I want to get off of work and go home to play”
“The big football game is tonight and I dont want to be late”
If only, if only they could be late, it may bode well for the sake of our fate
Maybe it will give the heroes time to come and save the day
Maybe they will save us, and make the murderers go away
What about us? Don’t we deserve to play? Don’t we deserve to live?
Dont we deserve to be loved, and give this unconditional love that we have to give?
Yes, we do…yes we deserve to live, yes we want to live, please, let us live
Don’t let these murderers take our lives away. Like them, we equally deserve to live
We want to live, We want to love, We want to be loved, and We want to enjoy
All that life offers to other good girls and boys
We want to eat a delicious meal, we want to relax, we want to play the game
The game of life, a game that nobody wants to be taken out of because the murderers came
And decided that we weren’t worthy of living, and while we’re on the subject, we must ask
Who made the killers “God”….who allowed them to take part in their lethal tasks?
Who are they to tell us whether we deserve to live, or not?
Would they allow others to decide THEIR fate, and decide whether to kill THEM or not?
Somehow we don’t think so. And doesn’t that make them hypocrites?
For doing to others what they would never want done to them, if they sat where we now sit?
Can someone be so lost, that they can arbitrarily kill their fellow living souls?
Can they live with themselves for deciding for whom the deadly bell tolls?
Yes. Sadly, these lost souls do this everyday, and they find excuses why they should kill us instead of saving us
When God gave out love, compassion and a reverence for life, these killers missed the enlightenment bus
They do not care for us…. if they did they wouldn’t murder us, they would love us and that is all
They would not inject us with poison, or wait while we struggle in the gas chamber, trying not to fall
For once you fall in the gas chamber it is too late
Your physical life is over, sealed, has been your fate
When we die, they simply add us the “pile”, we have no face and no name, what a shame
To see my friends treated so bad, thrown away, as if they are mere pawns in a simple game
It has to stop, it cant be allowed to continue any longer
The heroes have to come…they’ll win, because their love makes them stronger
Stronger than the cowards who kill us as if they are throwing away an old, used pair of shoes
We are so afraid, we don’t know what to do, we have got the blues
The heroes aren’t coming to save us, are they?
A society who’s heroes do nothing to stop the murderers, is a society that will inevitably decay
For who will stop the killers, if not those who believe in love and life?
If not those who oppose killing, whether by needle, gun, gas or knife?
Killing is killing, regardless of what kind of lethal weapon has been used
Killing a healthy living soul, in any form should not be excused
Wait…what is that noise? Is this our time to be murdered? What should we do?
No…no, it’s the heroes…they have come after all…..We’ve been adopted!!! It’s true!
The heroes run a shelter, and a shelter is only a shelter if it is no-kill
And any death camp can become a shelter, if those who run them only had the will
For where there’s a will, there’s a way…..
To let us live, love, be happy and play
As we enjoy life, no longer in fear of being killed, we are safe and sound
No more death camps, otherwise known as kill “shelters”, and pounds
Today, we will stand tall. There is no gas chamber here
There is no death needle to use to assassinate us, while our assassins don’t even care enough to shed a tear
There is, in our new home, only compassion, only respect, only love
It’s a miracle, from high up above
Our dream has come true: we are loved, we are loved!
We are free to live and love, we feel like it’s Christmas, and we’re happy turtle doves
Someone cared enough for us, to save us
We are no longer a prisoner of speciesism, We are now respected, dignified, and free to be us
We’re free to live life, my friends are free to be themselves, and I’m free to be me
Free to be all that God wanted us to be
If only everyone else in other so called “shelters” can be saved too
Well, actually, they CAN be saved, it’s true”.
“You’re right Thomas”, said Thomas’ rescuer. “Just like you, they can be saved too
It begins with someone who respects their fellow living souls’ right to live, someone like the person reading this, yes, someone like YOU!
Thank you for reading the story of Thomas and his fellow shelter animals, and what a happy one it is, too!
See what a little love and kind consideration can do?
Every living soul is a “story”, and they can also have a happy ending, they can also be spared
If enough of us work to get rid of the murderers and replace them with someone who cares
If enough of us care enough to take the time to concern themselves with how companion animals fare
If others are willing to rescue them into a loving environment, where killing is no longer “fair”
If we get rid of the rotten apples and the sour grapes
We all can be heroes, we all can wear Superman’s cape
We can all put an end to the Nazi’s second reign
This silent holocaust which extinguishes life’s precious flame
We defeated the murderous bullies once, we can do it again
It’s not a matter of “if”, it is a matter of “when?”
Today is a good day for “when?” to happen, don’t you agree?
And who wouldn’t agree, who would, in their right mind (and heart and soul) support such a travesty?
A travesty like the ones that occur everyday in death camps, disguised as “shelters”, which they are not
Where the murder of precious beings is disguised as being “humane” while, if done to us, our killers would go to jail to sit and rot
We have the power to stop the murder, the power to tear down the “humane killing” wall
And smash it into tiny little pieces, exposing the murderers who hide behind the wall, to one and all
We have the power to put “Murder Inc.” out of business, you better believe we do
We need only to act, to get it done, to not tolerate any longer, the liars that kill animals, while trying to deceive me and you
The truth is that we can stop the serial killers from killing any more animals, it’s easier than you think.
But first, we must stop buying the lies from the wolves in sheep’s clothing, and we have to force them to the brink.
And give the ultimatum that says in no uncertain terms:
“Stop the killing now, or your career will be so dead, it will start attracting hungry worms
You will be replaced with a true animal lover, and true animal lovers will not kill healthy animals, and that you can take to the bank
It’s time to act like civilized, life revering adults, instead of spoiled brats, who need to be taken over our knee for a hearty spank
If we find out that ONE more healthy animal is murdered, we will see to it that your superiors will get rid of you, you know
And like you never shed a tear for a precious living soul, while sending them to their death, we wont shed a tear when you leave, in fact, we’ll be happy to see you go
We’ll hold a parade to celebrate your job termination, beware, you’re headed for a fall
Because you are part of the problem, not part of the solution, and the person who is part of the solution will be the one who knows that LIFE IS PRECIOUS TO US ALL”
A Deadly, Contradictory World
This world is full of lost souls, wandering, stumbling, sleepwalking through the night, and they remain asleep even when the night turns into the light of day.
What kind of world is this when the self proclaimed “ethical” beings among us, unethically murder pets?
What kind of world is this, when the self proclaimed “humane” beings among us, inhumanely rape pets of their very lives, despite life saving alternatives?
What kind of world do we live in, when the self proclaimed “cruelty prevention” societies among us, actually ENGAGE in and add to the cruelty in the world, by cruelly taking a healthy, savable living soul’s physical life away from them?
What kind of world do we live in, when self proclaimed “animal rescue” groups, pose the biggest threat to the very animals, whom they claim to use YOUR donations on behalf of, in order to save?
What kind of world do we live in, when frauds use words that represent the essences of life, words such as “love” and “kindness”, all the while using these words to describe their mass SLAUGHTER of pets…thus using the words that represent the essences of life, as a way of excusing their insane, indifferent, cruel, selfish acts of ENDING lives?
What kind of world do we live in, when murderers develop a cult following, and those cults that defend the mass murder of pets in “shelters”, consists of beings who call themselves “pet lovers”?
What kind of world do we live in, when places that call themselves “shelters”, are THE biggest threats that pets need to be sheltered FROM?
Would anyone support a “Children’s shelter” that murdered children?
Would anyone support a “Battered wives shelter” that murdered battered wives?
Then what kind of psychosis is behind the poor excuses for “animal lovers” who support “Animal shelters” that murder animals?
When did wrong ever become right? (It hasn’t)
When did murder ever become “kind” and “loving”? (It hasn’t)
When did murdering someone ever become an act of “rescuing” or “saving” someone? (It hasn’t)
When did money, or power, or someone’s irrelevant career become a priority over THE most precious gift that life offers: Life itself? (It shouldn’t have, yet lives are taken to further one’s bank account balance, one’s job, or to tighten one’s butterfinger grasp on a self perceived, but delusional “power”)
In plain English, what the (bleep) is wrong with these (bleeping) idiots who have somehow become desensitized to the sacredness (if that’s not a word…it is now) of life?
At what point does the guilt of commiting murder, become a mere nagging numbness? A day at the office? A way of “life”?
Life, it appears, for many, is like a TV commercial. The pet murderers sell themselves in a flash of smoke and mirrors, but do not back up their claims with substance. They say what WE, the ones who are potential monetary contributors, want to hear, yet they DO the complete opposite with our monetary contributions.
The unethical whom I speak of, are PETA.
The inhumane whom I speak of, are the HSUS.
The cruel whom I speak of, are the ASPCA.
They all, along with their cult followers, SUPPORT the mass holocaust of pets. These groups even engage in the killing themselves. And so called animal “shelters” that murder pets, are not “shelters”, they are death camps for pets.

And here: http://www.nathanwinograd.com/?p=4091
For more, read “The Truth about PETA”, “The Truth about the HSUS” and “The Truth about the ASPCA” blogs, here: http://www.nathanwinograd.com/blog
To give your hard earned money to a pet loving group who will actually use it to SAVE pets, go here: http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org
All of the above mentioned: PETA, the HSUS, and the ASPCA, along with kill “shelters”, live contradictory lives. They advertise themselves as being “shinola” and selling “shinola”, yet in truth, they are the complete opposite of “shinola”, and they sell the complete opposite of “shinola”.
Only by contacting the above mentioned pet murderers, and telling them that they either become No Kill immediately, or else you will immediately cease with your monetary and other methods of support of them.
Contact your local death camp for pets and demand that they become a real shelter, the only genuine shelter…a No Kill shelter. Share this with them http://www.nokilladvocacycenter.org/shelter-reform/no-kill-equation and tell them to follow it, and it will lead them towards No Kill greatness.
Would the above mentioned lethal frauds think differently about life, if THEIR pathetic lives were the ones in danger of coming to a “kind” and/or “loving” end? .You bet your (bleep) they would think differently.
But, why wait for that to occur? Why dont YOU, (Peta, Hsus, Aspca, kill “shelters”) the lethal pet murdering frauds out there, just own up to the terrible horrors that you have committed, and change your ways. Redemption is there to take you by the hand, to guide you away from delusions and back to reality, to guide you away from committing wrong acts (murder) and back to taking part in right, compassionate acts, to guide you away from speciesism,and back to love, to guide you away from heartless killing and back to preserving life. Redemption will do all of this for you. Let it.
Otherwise you will continue to rot, like the soulless, dead carcasses that you currently are.
Leonardo DaVinci said: “The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals, as they now look upon the murder of men”.
THAT TIME HAS COME !!
Once again, here is the ONLY way to stop the killing:
Something to think about: When we rescue a Pet from a “shelter”, who REALLY is the one being rescued?
Our four legged family members do so much for us. They will be there when the rest of the world turns it’s back on us. They give us unconditional love. In plain english, life would bite the big one without them. They are not simply “pets”…they are family, they are our brothers and sisters, they are our soulmates, they are our babies. They are us, we are them.
Together, the love that we share with our four legged loved ones is, frankly, the most powerful force in the Universe. For it is a true , pure love. Heaven is the origin of this love.
That is why the love that we and our four legged family members share cannot and will not ever be extinguished, like PETA, HSUS and ASPCA would like to happen. That wont happen. Because the souls of our four legged family members are forever, our souls are forever with their souls, and we all are together in Heaven when all is said and done. Re: our four legged loved ones and us: Our souls are forever, our love is forever, our lives are forever.
Those who wish to make pets and pet lovers “extinct” are temporary….they will wither away into the nothingness from which they came. For they are pathetically mortal. And they are mortally wounded by their own acts of darkness such as murder, deception, greed, speciesism, etc.. PETA, HSUS, ASPCA, I’d say that “we will destroy you”, but we dont have to destroy you. You are destroying yourselves…….slowly the noose tightens….as you lose more credibility every day, more supporters by the day, more donations everyday…..how sweetly you whither…….away……away. Unlike our Pets and us, you…….PETA, HSUS, ASPCA will be destroyed. And how deliciously ironic it is, that you will be the ones who seal your own doom. Your closet doors have been blown off their hinges, and your skeletons are there for the world to see. You’ve been exposed for the pet murdering, “killing is kind” lying, bureaucratic butt-kissing, pimples on the buttocks of pets and pet lovers everywhere, that you are. And it is inevitable…eventually every pimple will pop, or slowly ooze away.
Long Live Pets. Long Live Pet Lovers. For We are One.
Are You a Pet Lover? Here’s how to save millions of lives every year:
You can also help by NOT supporting the following groups:
These groups SUPPORT the KILLING of pets and these groups OPPOSE programs and laws that would
1. Animal kill “shelters”
2. The unethical
3. The inhumane HSUS
4. The cruel ASPCA
So, if you LOVE pets, please do NOT support the four groups listed

DaVinci said: “The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder
of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”
THAT TIME HAS COME.
An old man was holding his cat with one arm, and walking his dog with the other arm, and they were all walking down a hot, dusty road lined with a beautiful white fence on both sides. As they walked along, the old man and his cat and dog all became very thirsty and tired.
Soon, they came to a gate in the fence where, on the other side, they saw a nice grassy, wooded area surrounding a cool clear pool of fresh water. “We’d all feel better after a little rest in a place like that” thought the old man. But there was a sign over the gate that read “No Cats or Dogs” so they walked on. Further on, they came upon a man in flowing white robes standing just inside a strong iron gate across a path that led to a beautiful, sunny meadow with a cool clear stream running through it.
“‘Scuse me Sir,” said the old man, “My cat, my dog and I have been on this road all day. Mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?” “Of course!” The man said. “Come on in and rest. You look thirsty and tired.” The old man said, “We sure are!” and started through the gate with his cat and dog. The gatekeeper stopped him. “Sorry, you can come in but your cat and dog can’t come with you. “You see, this is Heaven, and cats and dogs aren’t allowed here. They have to stay out here on the road.” “What kind of Heaven won’t allow cats or dogs?” said the old man. “Well, if they can’t come in, then I’ll stay out here on the road with them. They’ve been my faithful companions all their life and I won’t desert them now.” “Suit yourself,” said the gatekeeper, “but I have to warn you, the Devil’s on this road and he’ll try to sweet talk you into his place. He’ll promise you anything, but cats and dogs can’t go there either. If you won’t leave that cat or dog on the road, you’ll spend all Eternity on the road with them. Better if you stay here.” “Well, I’m stayin’ with my cat and dog,” replied the man and he and his cat and dog walked on. Gradually, the fence became more and more faded and rundown until they finally reached a spot where the boards fell away completely leaving a gap.
Another man dressed in old, ragged clothes sat just inside the broken fence under a shady tree.
“‘Scuse me Sir,” said the old man, “My cat and dog and I have been on this road all day. Mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?” “Of course!” The man said. “Come on in and rest. There’s some cold water here under the tree. Make yourself comfortable.” The old man paused, “But what about my cat and dog? Can they can come in, too? The man up the road said cats and dogs weren’t allowed here, and they had to stay on the road.” The other man answered, “Well, you look pretty tired and thirsty. Would you come in here and rest if you had to leave that cat or dog?” “No sir!” the old man replied, “A glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now but I won’t come in if my buddies here can’t come too. I didn’t go to Heaven because my cat and dog couldn’t come with me, so I sure as how ain’t about to go to Hell without them neither.”
The man smiled and said, “Welcome to Heaven, and bring your cat and dog!” The old man exclaimed, “You mean this is Heaven? And my cat and dog can come with me? Then why did that fellow down the road say they weren’t allowed in Heaven?” The man replied, “That was the Devil and he gets all the souls who are willing to give up a life-long companion for small comfort because they think it will make their lives a little easier.”
The man continued, “They soon find out their mistake, but, then it’s too late. The cats and dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. God wouldn’t allow cats and dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, He created them to be man’s companions in life, why would he separate them in death?”

Myth: No Kill is too expensive. Our community cannot afford it.
Fact: No Kill is cost-effective, fiscally responsible, and a great economic boon to local communities. Municipalities who want to enact good policy and improve the local economy should invest in lifesaving at their local shelter. Given the cost savings and additional revenues of doing so (reduced costs associated with killing, enhanced community support, an increase in adoption revenues and other user fees, and additional tax revenues), as well as the community economic impact of adoptions, a community cannot afford not to embrace No Kill.
Myth: Open admission shelters can’t be No Kill.
Fact: A No Kill shelter can be either “limited admission” or “open admission.” No Kill only means that no savable animals are put to death, roughly 95% of all intakes. And there are plenty of No Kill animal control shelters and thus No Kill communities to prove it.
Myth: You can’t adopt your way out of killing.
Fact: Using the most successful adoption communities as a benchmark and adjusting for population, U.S. shelters combined should be adopting almost nine million animals a year. That is almost three times the number being killed for lack of a home. In fact, it is more than total impounds. But the news gets even better.
There are over 23 million people who are going to get an animal next year. Some are already committed to adopting from a shelter. Some are already committed to getting one from a breeder or other commercial source. But 17 million have not decided where that animal will come from and research shows they can be influenced to adopt from a shelter. That’s 17 million people vying for roughly 3 million animals. So even if 80% of those people got their animal from somewhere other than a shelter, we could still zero out the killing. And many communities are proving it.
Myth: No one wants to kill.
Fact: In NYS, 71% of rescue groups have been turned away from shelters which then killed the very animals those rescue groups offered to save. In FL, it was 63%. In one CA county, the number of animals transferred to rescue groups, rather than killed, went from zero to 4,000 a year after a law was passed forcing them to work with rescue groups. We need such a law in all 50 states because shelters often kill animals even when those animals have an immediate place to go.
