Save Cats in Shelters!
Cats ARE NOT TO BLAME for HUMANS’ Decimation of Wildlife
Take Action to Save Cats:
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. Ignite your passion into an eternal flame. Fight the good fight. Fight for Pets’ Rights! Thank you.

WARNING: PETA may be in your neighborhood rounding up animals to kill.
The Theft and Killing of Maya
On October 18, 2014, in Parksley, VA, PETA stole Maya, a happy and healthy dog, from her porch while her family was out. They killed her that very day.
According to a spokesman for Maya’s family, PETA came to the trailer park where the family lives, where most of the residents are Spanish speaking with few resources. The PETA representatives befriended the residents. They got to know who lived where and who had dogs. In fact, they sat with the family on the same porch off which they later took Maya. Waiting until the family was away from the home, PETA employees backed their van up to the porch and threw biscuits to Maya, in an attempt to coax her off her property and therefore give PETA the ability to claim she was a stray dog “at large.” But Maya refused to stay off the porch and ran back. Thinking that no one was around, one of the employees—who was later charged with larceny—went onto the property and took Maya.
When the family returned and found their beloved Maya missing, they searched around the neighborhood before checking the video on the surveillance camera. That is when they saw the PETA van on the film and recognized the woman who had come to their house on prior occasions to talk to them about Maya. They called PETA and asked for Maya’s return. According to a family spokesperson, PETA claimed it did not have the dog. When PETA was told that its employees had been filmed taking the dog, they hung up. Shortly afterward, a PETA attorney called and informed the family that Maya was dead. PETA had killed her. She may not be the only one. On the day they stole Maya, other animals went missing as well. Had a surveillance video not been available, the killing of Maya would have remained unknown, as are the fates of the other animals. In the last 11 years, PETA has killed 29,426 animals.
In a dishonest attempt at damage control, PETA put out a full page ad in the newspaper. The ad intentionally misleads people about their campaign of extermination against community cats. It says nothing of their theft and killing of Maya. It does not mention the arrests of PETA employees for larceny. It does not mention that this is not the first time PETA employees have been arrested for killing animals. In fact, PETA refuses to answer questions about why they stole and killed Maya: http://bit.ly/15kRPFX And though PETA takes in thousands of animals a year, only to put the vast majority to death, the ad offered two dogs for adoption, hoping to defray criticism for their killing of thousands of others. Given that they only adopt out 1% of the animals they take in, those two dogs, if indeed they are adopted out rather than killed, will be some of the few spared from the needle.
The No Kill Advocacy Center Response
The No Kill Advocacy Center has responded by:
– Asking the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (VDACS) to revoke PETA’s ability to kill animals: http://bit.ly/1zxqE5o
– Requesting a petition for rulemaking asking for regulations requiring more transparency in Virginia “shelters”: http://bit.ly/1BP4U3Z
– Drafting and asking the state to pass “Maya’s Law”: http://bit.ly/1zJoHDb
Today, I, and other animal lovers, also responded. We placed this ad in the same newspaper to counter PETA’s misinformation. The people who live near PETA headquarters and whose animals may be at risk should be aware of the danger PETA poses to their beloved animal companions so that they may take precautionary measures, such as not letting their animals go outside unsupervised. They also have a right to know that an organization located within their vicinity is letting loose individuals who not only maniacally believe that killing is a good thing and that the living want to die, but who are legally armed with lethal drugs which they have already proven—29,426 times in the last decade—that they are not adverse to using: http://bit.ly/1bdIqes
The Response By Others
We are not alone:
– A Senator calls for an investigation of PETA: http://bit.ly/1uAn44m
– The Richmond SPCA calls for an investigation of PETA: http://bit.ly/1sxijIO
– The Accomack County attorney calls for an investigation of PETA: http://delmarvane.ws/1JXDKOj
– The Virginia Federation of Humane Societies calls for an investigation of PETA: http://bit.ly/1ygmbFq
When you donate to PETA, you pay to kill animals like Maya and thousands of others every year
World Vegan Summit: “Save Pigs and Chickens, But Murder Cats and Dogs in Shelters Until They Go Extinct”Posted: September 9, 2014
Troubling, disgraceful, intolerable:
By Nathan Winograd
How to Get Uninvited to the World Vegan Summit: Oppose the Extinction of Dogs & Cats
Several days ago, I posted that the animal rights movement may be turning a corner, as I was asked to speak at two animal rights conferences. As many of you may be aware, the animal rights movement has historically either maligned or ignored the No Kill movement, and with it, turned a blind eye to the systematic slaughter of millions of homeless dogs and cats every year. I especially hoped that one of those conferences—the World Vegan Summit —would provide a forum for those voices that have been historically silenced within the animal rights movement—voices such as my own—for being critical of those in positions of power and the policies they pursue that cause animals to suffer and be killed. In fact, some of the other speakers who will be at that conference have also criticized the movement for being top-heavy, prone to censorship, intolerant of dissent, threatened by change, and dismissive of the grassroots. Tragically, my enthusiasm was short-lived. That is because almost as quickly as I was asked to speak, I was promptly uninvited. Why? Because they took offense at a statement I made on my Facebook page.
In posting that I was invited to the conference, I said I was going to challenge the animal rights position promoted by some that living with dogs and cats is a violation of their rights and we should forcibly make them go extinct “for their own good.” With the belief that the “solution” to all dog and cat suffering lies solely in the eventual annihilation of their species, the animal rights movement not only preaches a view that the lives of dogs and cats are dispensable, their loss and deliberate elimination of no moral consequence, their disappearance from our planet no tragedy to mourn, it embraces an agenda which no other rights-based movement in history has ever subscribed to: the deliberate extinction of those it has pledged to protect. We do not further the cause of animal rights by promoting a double standard between humans and non-humans. After all, the idea that we should do to animals that which we would never propose to do to humans—in this case, seek the willful extinction of a particular group of humans—is the double standard that is to blame for so much suffering and killing of non-humans. Instead, we teach respect, we teach kindness, we teach compassion, and then we work to ensure the collective obedience to those values through legal rights, a prescription for change which every other social justice movement that has come before ours has used and used successfully.
I called such a view “arrogant” and “muddled” in its thinking. It apparently hit a nerve so raw with the sponsors of the World Vegan Summit that I was promptly uninvited. They are free to criticize the movement and do it without apology and in the strongest possible terms, but apparently no one else is. “Thanks for your understanding,” read the last line of the email uninviting me. To which 20 years of this very same treatment at the hands of the very people they themselves criticize for such conduct left me with only one possible response: “Oh believe me, I do understand.”
Interspecies relationships in the world are not rare and they are relationships that humans generally celebrate as evidence of the interconnectedness and beauty of life on Earth. But to those who are supposed to be the standard bearers of our relationships with animals— “leaders” of the animal rights movement—such relationships are “unnatural” and therefore “bad” when one of the parties is a human being. The proposed solution? Eliminate cats and dogs from the Earth by pursuing their willful extinction.
In the last 11 years, 29,426 animals have died at PETA’s hands including those they themselves described as “healthy,” “adorable,” and “perfect.” In some cases, this includes animals they promised to find homes for, only to put them to death within minutes in the back of a van—a donor-funded mobile death squad on wheels. It includes kittens and puppies. According to Ingrid Newkirk, PETA is “not in the home finding business.” Its mission is to put animals to death. PETA has no adoption hours, it does not keep animals alive long enough to find homes, and it does no adoption promotion. You can learn more in my Huffington Post expose by clicking here. How is this legal? PETA is registered in Virginia as an animal shelter.
Since employees of “animal shelters” are the only non-veterinarians authorized by Virginia law to kill animals, removing PETA’s designation as a shelter will put the brakes on PETA killing. Click here for the petition filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture (VDACS) on behalf of the No Kill Advocacy Center.
Help me end PETA’s mobile death vans. Help me end PETA’s ability to hire mindless “yes men” to kill animals at the whim and discretion of Ingrid Newkirk. Please take a moment to email VDACS Commissioner Matt Lohr and Animal Shelter Inspector Dr. Dan Kovich and POLITELY ask that they grant the NKAC petition to remove PETA’s designation as an animal shelter:
Commissioner Lohr: email@example.com
Dr. Kovich: firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE: The mad Dr. Kovich, and the cowardly Commissioner Lohr, despite the overwhelming, vast numbers of animal lovers urging them to tell the truth: That PETA does NOT run a “shelter”, have proven to be transparent frauds, who either:
1. Dont care one iota about their fellow living souls
2. Are being “generously rewarded” for their ineptitude by PETA themselves.
PETA ADMITTED TO THESE TWO GOOD FOR NOTHINGS THAT, “We Do NOT operate a shelter”. Therefore, this is IRREFUTABLE PROOF that PETA should NOT be designated as a “shelter”.
That PETA remains designated as a “shelter” (slaughterhouse for pets, in reality) even though they admitted to NOT being a shelter, is strongly indicative of one of the two scenarios described above, being the likely explanation for the lazy, worthless, and possibly corrupt actions, on the part of the Dr. and his Commissioner partner in ineptitude.
So, PETA’s massacre of pets continues.
P.S. The Dr and his Commissioner partner in crime (the ethical crime of looking the other way as healthy pets are being murdered) announced that they would do what they did best (nothing), within 48 hours after the calls for change began, further indicating that these pathetic individuals do not care about doing their jobs, as much as they care about cashing their paychecks.
But, of course, all of this is just my opinion.
