Animal Shelters That Kill, Are NOT “Shelters”Posted: April 7, 2014
Shelter: To protect from harm, to provide refuge, a safe haven
The first time many animals experience neglect and abuse is at the very shelter that is supposed to protect them from it. Our shelters are in crisis. Why? Killing is an act of violence. And not only do people in shelters work at a very place that commits this violence, they have, in fact, been hired to do exactly that. Can we really be surprised when they dont clean thoroughly, dont feed the animals, handle them too roughly, neglect and abuse them, or simply ignore their cries for help? How does shoddy cleaning or rough handling or skipping meals compare with putting an animal to death? Because shelter workers understand that they have the power to kill each and every one of these animals, and will in fact kill most of them, every interaction they have with those animals is influenced by the reality that their lives do not matter, that their lives are cheap and expendable, and that they are destined for the garbage heap. Where there is no right to life; there is no regard for welfare.
Murder and cruelty go hand in hand. In fact, murdering a healthy living soul IS a form of cruelty….it’s the worst form of cruelty in fact, because it’s the only form of cruelty where the animal has ZERO chance of healing.
Fact: Murdering healthy, adoptable pets is NOT “humane”, and it is NOT “kind”. It is CRUEL, and it is WRONG.
We treat pets as though we were omniscient gods‚ lying by deluding others into believing that death is our loving “gift” to them. We have no right to condemn healthy companion animals based on our limited understanding of their realities, as our mission should be exactly the same as children’s advocates: Establish more temporary safe havens, find additional permanent homes, and, most importantly, develop programs that reduce the number of homeless. Do countless children suffer for many years trapped in overcrowded and substandard orphanages?
Of course, as do refugees and millions upon millions of other displaced people, and this suffering is a horrendous tragedy. However, compassionate people seek to remedy these problems through addressing the fundamental causes, not killing the victims.
Killing is done by the uncivilized. By the weak-minded. By the cruel. By murderous NON animal lovers. For love doesn’t kill. It loves, protects, and enhances life.
Saving lives is done by those truly evolved enough to know that a cat’s life means equally as much to Him/Her, that a human animal’s life means to them!
It’s time to get over ourselves. We humans do not have the patent on life. We are but one of millions of species of animals on Earth, (most of whom were here long before us) and we are no more, and no less, deserving of rights, and of life, than anybody else.
To pretend otherwise, is to live a lethal fantasy.
True animal lovers choose to live a compassionate reality.
True animal lovers know that, like humans, our fellow animals are living, breathing, thinking, feeling, loving, soul filled Children of God, equally as much as anybody else.
And as such, animals, including pets, deserve the same Three Universal Birthrights, that everyone else does:
1. The Right to Live.
2. The Right to Love.
3. The Right to Be Loved.
What you have read is The Ultimate Truth…………the ignorance, arrogance and Speciesism of kill “shelters”, PETA, the HSUS, the ASPCA and other pet murdering frauds, notwithstanding.
All Are One. One Is All.
Please, make your community a No Kill community. Be brave. And know that you are on the side of right. Take action. Pets need YOU.
Our Pets are being murdered by the millions every year, in poor excuses for animal “shelters”. There ARE life saving alternatives (see below), but kill “shelter” operators are used to the status quo of killing pets, rather than saving them. YOU can help change that, by checking out the links below, and then demanding that your local “shelter” officials, Mayor, Governor, City Council Members, State Representatives, City Representatives, State Legislators, City Legislators, Senators, etc. actively fight to stop this disgusting massacre of our four legged family members. Thank you.
