Rescue Sheba

Nobody came for the sweet little angel today. The shelter has given her numerous days to find a home and still nobody shows any interest. Please share her she is running out of time
PLAIN AND SIMPLE – A GOOD GIRL WITH A DREAM TO FIND HER HAPPILY EVER AFTER TODAY … She lived with kids and allowed them to pet her and sit on her back, but she was not allowed to play with them. She had a home, but had to live outside during the summer. Today, she has a dream that someone will see her and give her the life she has always deserved full of love, laughter and happiness — no more lonely nights!

A volunteer writes :
Admittedly, Sheba was a bit nervous and aloof with me when I first took her out. It didn’t take long though for her to warm up to me and even climb into my lap. She loves butt scratches and is very sweet. Her owner says that she is well behaved in the house, housetrained, let the kids climb on her and knows a number of commands. She lived outside during the year, except in the winter 😦 Her safer is good, and her PG recommends a tolerant other dog and very slow introductions. Please share her.”

Over the weekend, I posted to twitter that “Since PETA doesn’t believe animals have a right to life it can’t – by definition – be an animal rights group. I included a photo of a postcard Ingrid Newkirk once sent me, written and signed by her, admitting to that fact.

I received the following message in reply: “Have heard/read so much anti Peta propaganda and pro Peta I honestly do not know who to believe. So I end up believing neither.”

This is a cop out. The truth does not come down to personalities. It comes down to what the objective facts, the evidence, shows. We all may be entitled to our own opinions, but we are not entitled to our own “facts.”

And given what is at stake — the lives of animals — the very least we owe the animals is an open mind, and the few minutes it takes to scrutinize the evidence for ourselves.

Here is the data, self-reported by PETA to the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, showing roughly 9 out of 10 animals they seek out are killed by them: https://goo.gl/NZ02XD

Here is an inspection report by the Virginia State Vet showing PETA kills roughly 90% of animals within 24 hours without even trying to find them homes: http://goo.gl/I41Bvm

Here is an OpEd piece written by PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk which appeared in newspapers across the country where PETA says it supports a policy that all pit bulls should be killed in all shelters in America: http://bit.ly/XrvcKf

Here is a newspaper article about the trial of PETA employees who were found to be rounding up and killing animals in the back of a van after promising to find them homes: http://bit.ly/XCSdI3

Here is the news station report of PETA stealing Maya, a “happy and healthy” dog and killing her: http://bit.ly/1EIsEHq

Here is the surveillance video of the theft: whypetaeuthanizes.org/maya

Here is an article by a former PETA employee who was told to kill highly adoptable animals and to lie in order to get them: http://bit.ly/1KGBzMx

Here is an interview with the former PETA employee who says that killing and lying are “standard operating procedure”: http://huff.to/1CSqUyY

Here is an article where PETA says community cats are better dead than sterilized and fed: http://goo.gl/WwXhQ5

Here is a video made by Shelby County KY shelter volunteers after PETA celebrated when that shelter announced it was going to resume killing after four years as a No Kill shelter: http://vimeo.com/48651351

Here is a letter by the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies asking the State Vet to revoke PETA’s ability to take in and kill animals: http://bit.ly/ZgBzfb

Here is a letter written by PETA to a Mayor telling him to kill all pit bulls, not to foster animals, and not to work with rescue groups: http://bit.ly/ZAnrvQ

Here are photographs of animals PETA has killed: whypetaeuthanizes.org/photos/

Here is a video where Ingrid Newkirk admits they kill healthy, adoptable animals: nathanwinograd.com/?p=14568

There’s more; much more, including exposes in a wide variety of sources, such as the Huffington Post, New York Times, The Atlantic, CNN, and local newspapers.

PETA is letting loose upon the world 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—32,744 times—that they are not adverse to using.

Employees Wanted: Must Love Animals – Nathan J Winograd


In fact, the study authors went even further here, too. They concluded  that staff and volunteers who live with cats correlated most strongly with these outcomes. Why? People who lived with cats “were found to have a more positive view of cats” than those who did not and they would spend more time interacting gently and positively with the cats.

And yet, too often, animal shelters are staffed with people who don’t care; who understand that they have the power to kill each and every one of these animals, and will in fact kill most of them, so that every interaction they have with those animals is influenced by the perception that their lives do not matter, that their lives are cheap and expendable, and that they are destined for the garbage heap.

If we are to encourage happy dogs and cats in shelters who approach potential adopters and thus get adopted quicker and in greater numbers, working at a shelter has to be a mission, not just a job. First and foremost, employees considered for the position have to love animals. As such, “do you have pets?” and “tell me about them” might just be the two most important things to ask during a job interview.

TripAdvisor promises to stop selling tickets for ‘cruel’ animal attractions

TripAdvisor is to cease selling tickets to “cruel” animal attractions around the world.

The review site – and its sister booking company Viator – has announced that tickets to “hundreds of animal attractions where tourists come into physical contact with captive wild animals or endangered species” will no longer be available, in a bid to improve animal tourism and wildlife conservation.

Such attractions include elephant rides, tiger petting or swimming with dolphins, some of which come under regular criticism for how the animals are treated. The London-based campaign group World Animal Protection (WAP) called them “cruel”.[…]
