Clayton County Georgia Dog Starved to Death

Clayton County Georgia Dog Starved to Death

While people rail against cruelty to companion animals in China, Korea and other countries, companion animals are being tortured, abandoned to die in the streets, abused and starved to death right here in America. This is not acceptable. It must end.

This poor young dog was ignored by his owner and starved in his own backyard in Clayton County, Georgia. He died as a rescue group frantically rushed him to a vet to try to save his life.

This poor dog and his sister were left outside by their owners with no food or water. His sister survided thanks to the rescue group, but unfortunately Peace did not.

This continual abuse and inhumane cruelty to America’s companion animals must end. 

The rescue group named this dog Peace. Blessings upon those who rescue and save our companion animals from the wrath of soulless humans.

May Peace come to all America’s companion animals, killed by the cruelty of man for companion animals. May this young dog named Peace by his rescuers, finally find the peace of the Lord he was denied by Man on earth.

Throughout civilization, nations have codified the basic and essential rights of their society —rights that all agree must not be infringed upon by the government or other individuals or entities. In the United States, our Bill of Rights enumerates our societies enlightened cherished and essential rights including life and liberty and freedom from harm.

There is however no bill of rights for our companion animals in America. Every year over 4 million companion animals in America are killed in our animal shelters. Why? because companion animals are legally labeled merely as “Things” in the eyes of the law.  

Helpless companion animals must in this day and age be granted protection from the cruelty of man by man to companion animals. Join with us and donate to CAR as we work daily to bring the basic, essential rights of life and freedom from abuse, harm, punishment and death to companion animals in America.

COMPANION ANIMAL RIGHTS

We know from science that companion animals are sentient beings as we are: they have feelings and emotions, have intelligence and feel pain and happiness, just as we do.

In the 21st century companion animals must not be labeled by lawyers as things. A car is a thing. A dog or cat is not an unfeeling, unintelligent lifeless thing. A companion animal is a sentient being just as you are.

 

 

Many countries around the world have changed their laws to treat companion animals with rights as sentient beings. America must get on board as well. 

Get on board with us and help implement CAR – Companion Animal Rights.org as we work for legal personhood for companion animals, passing a National Companion Animal Rights Bill.

“I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man. The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Gandhi.

So whats your opinion? Would you support a Federal Companion Animal Rights Bill?

Black Dog Syndrome Killing America’s Black Dogs

Black Dog Syndrome is killing America’s black dogs. Black dog syndrome is a phenomenon in America, and indeed throughout the world, in which black dogs are passed over for adoption in favor of lighter-colored animals. Animal shelters try to overcome this syndrome bias from pet adopters yet black dogs remain the most abandoned and most euthanized dogs in animal shelters.

Ending Black Dog Syndrome is a community service program of Green Pets America to educate the public on this syndrome and assist animal shelters across America get their black shelter dogs adopted.

As Executive Director and founder of a dog rescue nonprofit, Green Pets America Charities, I have spent the last 12 years involved with rescuing dogs from shelters. Everything from walking in and pulling them out of kill shelters, to taking them to vets, to bringing them to our rescue group, to placing them in foster care and working diligently to adopt them. I’ve spent many a weekend at Pet Smart with two dozen dogs trying to get them adopted.

Through all this, one thing became apparent to me. Black Dogs were the least adopted of all the dogs we rescued. They were the least adopted in the shelters we went into as well. We therefore had a higher than usual selection of black dogs, versus light colored or mixed color dogs to rescue from our area animal shelters.

What we also found was black dogs languished not only much longer in shelters, but rescue groups as well. Where we could adopt other colors out on average in three months, some black dogs took up to a year…. Some, even more.

So I did some research and found that our experience was not unusual, it was sadly normal. There is a phenomena and its named, Black Dog Syndrome (BDS). Black Dog Syndrome is known by shelters and rescue groups throughout America. Numerous respected national organizations have long recognized BDS as an issue that adversely affects the adoption rates of black pets.

So, what exactly is this syndrome?Black Dog Syndrome Killing America's Black Dogs

Black Dog Syndrome is a sometimes conscious, but most times unconscious mental, and emotional bias in humans against black dogs.

Well, there are many reasons, including superstitious fear of black dogs, “old wives’ tales” about black dogs, Black dogs depicted in movies and literature as evil or devilish. A scary, growling black dog can be seen in The Hound of the Baskervilles, the Harry Potter series and The Omen.

Because of this bias, black shelter dogs are the most euthanized dogs in our animal shelters.

In a survey, Pet finder the respected national organization where we post our dogs available for adoption, animal shelter and rescue groups reported that most pets are listed for about 3 months, whereas, black dogs and senior or special needs dogs average 12 months on the Pet finder adoption site.

The only real fact, not ignorance, superstition or media and folklore bias is that black dogs do not photograph well on animal shelters and rescue groups websites, listing pictures of dogs for adoption. This is easily overcome however by simply photographing black dogs in front of blue screens or blue paper, as we have done at our rescue organization Green Pets America.

At Ending Black Dog Syndrome [BlackDogSyndrome.org] the color of a dogs coat has nothing to do with the dogs’ temperament or personality. Ask any owner of a black dog. Ask me, we have three. Our black dogs are as loving, playful, smart and a joy to be with each day as our other two, non-black dogs.

So what can you do to end Black Dog Syndrome?

You can go to an animal shelter and adopt a black shelter dog.

You can share this with friends and family, encouraging them to consider adopting a black dog the next time they get a dog. 

Remind people it’s not the color of the dog, but the size of her heart that is important.
