Just one small example of the cruelty that abounds

This video is extremely graphic and I could not watch even more than about 20 seconds of it. I am literally shaking with anger and sadness. These Mexicans who committed this horrendous act of abuse deserve nothing less than the same cruelty as they inflicted on this newborn puppy. And then they need to suffer even more. I only post this as an example and to show that there are people out there like these assholes who obviously think this is funny and deserves posting on a social media site so others can share in the laughter. I would not, under any circumstances, allow these people to live should I ever find them. Hopefully, someone, somewhere will see this, know who these people are, and bring them to immediate street justice. And they are laughing as they do this? We live in a very, very sick world. And this is probably only one of thousands of examples of this stuff that happens out there.

I am so completely numb with anger and sadness. Help get this out and help to find out who did this.

Don’t tell me…

That Global Warming does not exist.

Really? For the Sake of “Fashion”?

Here are two more people to add to the list of totally clueless and idiotic hypocritical animal haters.

The Warmth of Other Suns

This is from Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary. A beautiful story about lives saved and lost. A tale of how animals would rather live than the way we make them live.

The Warmth of Other Suns

If You Have the Courage…..

Most of us would rather just not know. It is far easier to just ignore the abuse that the animals we consume go through for us to have meat on our tables. Like a turkey at Thanksgiving. To ease our consciouses, it is easier to just accept the treatment of these animals as “just the way it is.” It takes far more courage and honesty to face the facts and to acknowledge that the treatment of these animals is inhumane and immoral, and just plain wrong.

Why is it important to point these things out and to try to get people to see the actual proof of the abuse? Why not just let things be and face the facts that turkeys and cows and pigs and chickens are bred and raised for the sole purpose of feeding us? Why bring these things up at all? Because this abuse DOES happen. And this abuse IS wrong. And because “just not thinking about these things” allows us to continue to feel good about ourselves and to pretend it doesn’t really happen. But it does. And here’s the proof. Take it for what it is.

Have the courage to acknowledge that our choices are wrong. Or, just continue to perpetuate the situation and load the rifles and go find some innocent deer to slaughter, or sharpen up the axes and line up the turkeys. Or better yet, just dismiss those who bring these things to your attention as “radicals,” and “kooks.” That’s far easier isn’t it? Just pretend it doesn’t happen. And that the circle of life is as it should be and life is jolly and festive.

In Case You Are Still in Denial…

I have never seen the show, and I do not know the man, but I think I like him. Then again, I like anyone who speaks the truth.

Your Thanksgiving

This is typical and but a fraction of the suffering the typical turkey for your Thanksgiving Dinner will go through during its “life” as a “free-range” Butterball turkey. But hey, continue to turn a blind eye and pig put! All in the name of your satisfaction! After all, it’s “just a turkey,” right? A “dumb” ugly bird, right?

Enjoy!

More Truths About PETA and Other Animal Sanctuaries and Shelters

You can’t make this shit up. Many times, those who claim to be “animal rights” advocates often have other motivations. And those other motivations are seldom in the best interests of defenseless animals. You can throw all of the money you have towards “helping” animals, but if that money is put solely towards erecting buildings with your name prominently placed above the door, or if that money does little more than soothe your guilty conscious, or if that money is sent unwisely to those shelters and sanctuaries that spend pennies on the dollar to actually improve the lives of animals, than what good have you done?

And I know people like that here in San Antonio, who claim to be doing good and doing what is best for the animals, but in reality, they cause more harm than good because no accountability is ever demanded. Money disappears into the big sinkhole of the sanctuary’s messed up finances. And those who give, are never the wiser in most cases. Much of that money gets spent on everything except animal care. None is spent on veterinary care, but it is spent on vacations. None of it is spent on training and hiring the right employees, but it is spent on food and liquor.

I am not a militant vegetarian by any means, and I try to be a vegan at every turn. Sometimes it’s hard. You are eating at a place that has no vegetarian, let alone vegan options, so you either go without, or compromise your beliefs left and right. However, spending hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a year to care for your pets, while turning the other way when faced with animal cruelty that surrounds us all daily, makes you a hypocrite. Condoning the slaughter of farm animals is tragic. Pretending that it doesn’t happen because the chicken, or the pig, or the cow you eat comes wrapped up in pretty cellophane packages in your grocer’s meat case is just ignorant. Picking and choosing which animals deserve to live and which deserve to be senselessly slaughtered, all depending on your needs, is cruel.

And if you horde animals in “shelters” and “sanctuaries” and then don’t provide them with the proper care, you ought as well have not even tried in the first place. If these places exist here in San Antonio, and Bulverde, and in Dallas, they exist in your hometown as well. And by the way, throwing an occasional handful of food at the animals in your care, does not, in fact, constitute “proper care.”

I have felt like this for a while, and I will freely admit, that at times, I too have looked the other way when I shouldn’t have. All to my shame. But, the older I get, the more conscious I become about the sanctity of life. For all beings, human and not. I intend to devote even more of my time to the right causes, and I further intend to expose the people and the places I know are wrong. Why? Because if people like me don’t, who will? I would rather get a place shut down and the animals removed and taken into proper care, no matter the consequences, than to let the animals go on being more neglected than they ever were before they got there.

It all starts with that first phone call, and the release of the first photographic and video evidence.

Animal Hoarding

What is animal hoarding?

According to the Hoarding Animals Research Consortium, the following criteria are used to define animal hoarding:

  • More than the typical number of companion animals
  • Inability to provide even minimal standards of nutrition, sanitation, shelter, and veterinary care, with this neglect often resulting in starvation, illness and death
  • Denial of the inability to provide this minimum care and the impact of that failure on the animals, the household, and the human occupants of the home

Nearly 250,000 animals are victims of animal hoarding each year. This abuse differs from other types of animal cruelty in that the perpetrators don’t always accept or recognize the cruelty they inflict on their animals. Rather, animal hoarders usually ardently believe they are saving or rescuing the animals they imprison.

How does it cause animal suffering?

Animals kept in hoarding conditions often suffer extreme neglect, including lack of food, proper veterinary care and sanitary conditions. Officers investigating hoarding situations often find floors, furniture and counters covered with animal feces and urine. In extreme cases, decaying animal carcasses are found among the living animals. Insect and rodent infestations are also common.

Are there other concerns?

Aside from obvious animal suffering, animal hoarding presents health hazards for the human occupants of the home. Child and adult protective services can be called to intervene when the hoarder’s neglect extends beyond the animals.

Filthy conditions under which animal hoarders live also attract disease vectors such as insects and rodents. This can also threaten neighboring households. Often a house that is home to a hoarding situation must be condemned by the health department due to unlivable conditions.

Finally, animal hoarding places a tremendous strain on already-overburdened animal shelters, which lack the space or resources to deal with an influx of hundreds of animals, many of whom are usually in dire need of medical attention. Holding these animals pending the outcome of a court case may displace otherwise adoptable animals and lead to their euthanasia.

WooHoo!

Madison and Lily

Madison lost his eyesight due to a rare disease, but has found a friend in Lily who guides him by a leash so that he won’t stumble or hurt himself. For those of you who still believe that animals are just dumb, “stupid” things without feelings, without compassion, without emotions, without a soul, how would you explain this?
