MEOW! My name is June Buggie, and I have something to say.
Sometimes you humans make me wanna sharpen my claws on your sofa.
Last week Rumpy went to the Petchat Twitter Party and what he said happened left me VERY displeased! It seems some of you are STILL adamantly opposed to national groups like the Humane Society and PETA because some group you’ve never even heard of before told you they are bad and they don’t donate to local shelters.
BAH! That’s a furball I just hocked in your shoe.
Here’s a number for you to tattoo on those opposable thumbs of yours: 4 million. That’s a CONSERVATIVE estimate of how many domesticated animals are killed each year in the US because they don’t have a home. I say estimate, because you’re not riled up enough to actually make governments keep statistics on euthanasia rates.
You go around demanding a no-kill nation, but you don’t have a clue what making that happen would entail. And even if you do, you’re sure not doing anything to make it happen.
There are 50 thousand dogs and cats born in the US EVERY DAY. Just where do you propose the homeless ones go? Who’s going to take care of all those animals? And who’s going to pay for it? You don’t want to pay full price for a burrito but you think somehow we’re going to find a way to cover the bill for the care and upkeep of millions of dogs and cats?
Let’s face it, until we figure out a way to legislate an end to this over-abundance of animals, we won’t BE a No-Kill nation. And the very groups that you’re protesting against are the ones that ARE taking legal and political action to make the plight of animals better in the US.
And who are the ones that DON’T want legislation? The animal agriculture industry. The puppy mill industry. You know, the groups you claim to oppose but unwittingly stand in solidarity with when you oppose national animal welfare groups.
The truth of the matter is that if every animal lover in the US stood together and demanded humane animal laws and practices, it would happen. But since you humans have allowed yourselves to be duped by the enemy, we animals continue to suffer. And that really pisses me off.
