More "No Kill" Bull

Brag, brag, brag. Well, it might help to check before bragging. Seems the Porter County Indiana "No Kill" shelter ain't doing that well. In fact, because they have been turning away owner turn ins, it has resulted in a documented case of cruelty and death for kittens.

He needs to check these things out before he starts bragging. He blogged about how great this shelter is doing.

Overcrowding now and they want to build another shelter.

And it's not cheap.

BUT after all of this and there are more articles on line, dig this masterful marketing trick. Seems as always, Winograd and his Whinonettes put a spin on everything. Forget that they are overcrowded, forget that valued volunteers are arrested for speaking out, forget it all and tell how the "live release" rate has gone up. Don't mention that the shelter is turning away people, taxpayers who pay for the service and then don't find it available when they need it. And they probably haven't reached their saturation point with their fosters and rescues, usually Whinonettes trying to impress their master. If there is one thing the Whino is good at, it is marketing.

Would it be possible to quote some of the referenced articles in the blog post? Sometimes these links fail to work after even a short period of time

I would love to but often there is a copywrite involved with newspaper articles. If you have a specific then I can respond under comments. I usually do a copy and paste and store it in a file as soon as I can, along with the link. And you are right, often they go away so that is good reason to store them somewhere. Let me know, you can post under comment.

Truth be told, point after point after point! KAPOW!!! Ed Boks' shelters are no different, except for the part where volunteers are arrested for speaking up. He just tells the ADL-types who are supporting him (Feral Cat Alliance) to set us straight. You know what that means. He's scary too; In kahoots with the extremists, I fear, and the rescue mamas all want to please him too, it seems.
