I say turn about is fair play. We have to listen to the same crap from the Whino about HSUS, the ASPCA, and of course, PETA. I'm sick of his whining.
Recently the Whino told a reporter that he would do an interview with anyone. He is big with the breeding community (AKA puppy mills included of course). With the news (old news to me) of the cruelty of breeding because of meeting kennel club standards along with the puppy mills that the AKC protects, for him to grant an interview is akin to prostituting, plain and simple. Sell yourself for the price of a book, at least he's cheap. He's not spreading the word, he's in league with the devil. I wondered if during those interviews if he mentioned puppy mills??
Why hasn't he said anything about his "Best Friends" actions? Ever heard of the "Don the Dog Guy"? http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2009/01/amherst_man_guilty_of_fraud_fo.html Seems that Best Friends "gave" the Dogman 28 pit bulls from Katrina and a good bit of money per dog from all those donations that came in for their "wonderful" rescue. Just in the last few week, the Dogman was convicted of animal cruelty and only three of 28 dogs were accounted for. It is known that at least one dog died due to fighting. All the others are dead as far as we know. This guy was also ordered to pay back over $62,000 to Best Friends. Well, obviously Best Friends didn't bother to check this guy out and if they didn't check this guy, how many others that we don't know about are out there like this one. As usual with the "No Kill Equation" it's push them out the door, out of sight, out of mind. Who gives a shit that the dogs end up on chains or thrown in backyards, if they are lucky, or just plain thrown out? "No Kill" doesn't care, just get those "live release numbers" to looking good, to hell with whether we do good adoptions.
Why didn't Best Friends retain all the dogs they brought back from Katrina? After all they have 33,000 acres, more than enough room. Most people who donated to them believe that the dogs went to their sanctuary. So Best Friends is most certainly guilty of deceit. Now isn't this what the Whino claims of HSUS?
And another thing we won't hear from the Whino is how Best Friends has killed one of the Vick dogs due to surgery. Yes, I know that anytime a dog is put under for surgery, that it is a risk. But the point is that of all the dogs, this particular one died on the table and this was the explanation offered by Best Friends. I'll lay ten to one, the dog died from a dog fight.
And what about Best Friends not knowing enough to provide the correct size ball for playing with the dogs. One dog had to have surgery due to a ball. The ball was small enough for the dog to swallow. Now I know that you have to be careful about the size of the ball to the size of the dog and you probably know that too. Best Friends employees didn't. Make me wonder about the care that these employees render with their lack of knowledge.
And although Best Friends does not hesitate to step in on situations that are getting media attention, they won't step in for a situation just down the road from them. A hoarder was busted close to Best Friends (makes you wonder where the dogs came from) and no where to take these dogs. Best Friends refused to help. Yeah, Whino, talk about no kill, what happens to these Best Friends rejects, they will probably be killed. Who is to blame, the hoarder, a little, but Best Friends turning these dogs away is a sure death sentence. So turning animals away makes you a partner in the killing and Best Friends is a major partner.
All this whining from the Whino about HSUS and PETA looks like nothing more than jealousy to me. He's already pissed because he didn't get the Maddie's Fund. Now he looks at the number of members (money) of these two organizations and he wants it. He reminds me of a little boy who was chosen last, no one wanted to play with him. So he has developed a scheme to get all those people back, make their pets suffer with this no kill crap. I'll have to say that he reminds me of a street walking prostitute that will sell herself to anyone that waves money in her face. Same with the Whino. He has sold himself to the breeding community. Oh, he claims he will do an interview with anyone who wants to listen. Excuse me, but when you do interviews, it is a given that you are supporting the organization that is interviewing. I call it whoring myself and the Whino is an expert there.
