“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” Gandhi
Congressional Leaders. Please answer this question that over 100 million companion animal owners – and voters – in America are asking.
WHY MUST WE KILL 4 MILLION COMPANION ANIMALS IN AMERICA EVERY YEAR?
Companion animals are like family members to most Americans, They sleep in our beds, they protect us, they unconditionally love us, Our police, government and military K 9 companion animals keep our cities, counties and Nation secure, and have given their lives to protect us. Our therapy dogs help the disabled, the young, the elderly, the blind and those in hospitals and nursing homes. They are right there with our first responders in time of need in disasters. They hunt with us, play with us and even teach us and our children compassion and love. How can we turn a deaf ear, a blind eye and a cold heart to them when they are in need. When they are thrown out of their homes, how can we not show them compassion? When they then need us, when they become homeless, How can we kill them?
America was founded on the highest human values. America was and still remains a moral nation. In this country of reverence and respect for life, creativity, justice and a can do spirit is killing 4 million healthy homeless shelter companion animals every year the only answer to our homeless animal challenge?
I’ve been the founder and executive Director of an animal welfare organization in Atlanta Georgia since 2005. We have provided spay & neuter, food pantries, and death row animal rescue and foster homes and adoptions. We have worked cooperatively with other rescue organizations across America. We have worked with local animal shelter directors, city and county leaders. We have been recognized by the Georgia Senate and City of Woodstock for our efforts on behalf of Georgia’s families and companion animals. We have written a best seller book, RESCUE RENEW REHOME. We publish a daily companion animal magazine, write weekly blogs and are active on social media and speak on animal welfare reform. Despite these 11 years of concentrated effort on our part and that of our loyal thousands of supporters and fellow companion animal lovers we must acknowledge that only a small dent has been made by us and every local and national welfare groups, including HSUS, ASPCA, Best Friends, and PETA to end the killing of 4 million companion animals every year in America.
The ASPCA, American Society for Prevention Cruelty to Animals, was founded in 1866 by Henry Bergh in New York City, to end the cruelty to animals. Today 150 years later we are still killing healthy and innocent companion animals in America. Every year across America approximately 3,500,000 to 4,000,000 companion animals are killed in America. To put it bluntly, Animal welfare in America is broken. We are not living up to our moral greatness. I and millions of companion animal lovers in America are fed up. We no longer accept the status quo. And we no longer accept the broken promises of those elected and those in animal welfare who are supposed to save the lives of our homeless and shelter animals.
We are not going to take it any longer. We are fed up trying to get America’s government run animal shelters to change and come into the 21st century.
American’s have come to the conclusion that the only way to end the killings is to enact a National Act, to make it illegal across America to kill healthy companion animals.
Working around the margins like HSUS, ASPCA, PETA and Best Friends is doing will take another 150 years to end the killings. If the average number of killings was only 1.5 million not 4 million, since the ASPCA was founded to end the cruelty to companion animals we have killed over 225,000,000 healthy companion animals. If we continue at that rate for another 150 years we will kill another 225 Million pets. The carnage and killing cannot continue. These are not the actions of the great and moral nation we were founded on, and still are in our hearts still.
Doing the same thing… and expecting different results is like Einstein said…INSANE
My last great hurrah, before I depart this world is to help lead the efforts of America’s 100 million animal lovers to ensure a national law is enacted to end the killings of America’s innocent sentient beings, our faithful and loving companion animals. To accomplish that we have created the COMPANION ANIMALS RIGHT TO LIFE ACT – C.A.R.L.A.
