RAE IS GONE!!! Or Don't Let The Door Hit You In The Ass On The Way Out

It's about 9:30 Indy time on Monday morning and the dismissal of Doug Rae has just hit the news. There will be a press conference at 10:30 this morning.

Congratulations to Mike Speedy for all his work on ridding Indy of this disease called "No Kill".

Now on to getting the pits under control in Indy and stop counting their victims there.

That is wonderful news for Indy. I only hope he doesn't end up back here with Mr. Winograd, or at the Reno shelter, as you know they had an opening for a dog manager. Good reporting Honesty.

Better keep an eye out for him, he is in the market.

They got rid of him before animals started dying at the shelter at least, or given out to hoarders (well, except the $4 dogs I guess)

But so many people have had to really suffer because of the actions of this person

Wait though. How many dogs died on the streets or were shot or tortured because he wouldn't let them get picked up? Or killed terribly when the shelter wouldn't accept them?

How many HAVE ended up with abusers? I shudder to think.
Did you notice that one of the articles said the cages were all full, and some dog cages already had more than 1 dog in them

It was about to blow there!

Is Winograd already starting to case some places to send him to? What's the Whino reaction?

Honesty Helps said...

I do find it strange that Winograd hasn't already distanced himself from Rae like he did with Darby in Philly. As soon as the audit, etc., started coming to light, the Whino started calling names but he always upheld Rae. But he didn't do that this time like when Rae was put on probation. Just waiting to see how he will handle this one, as if I can't guess.

The media will help him wiggle out of it. He will quote the fluff pieces and contribute it to politics. I'm quite sure he will blame Mike Speedy and call him vengeful. The damn media in Indy sucks, Boycott Gannett Media!!!

Gret, "No Kill" doesn't believe in empty kennels/cages. You have empty depending on what time of day you go there. Early in the morning, they do euthanasia before opening to the public and there are empty cages. By the end of the day, the cages may be full. And what if you have quarantine or evidence cases? You need some in reserve because it happens at the drop of a hat. Even disasters like fires, having additional kennels to help with evacuated pets is a good thing. Better than having a poor old dog who has been there forever and doesn't stand a chance in hell of finding a home. Unless Gret comes by. One can always hold out hope but does a dog understand the concept of hope? We have to stop them from coming in, that is the key.

Just think if Winograd had devoted his time and energy to just spay neuter programs and educating people, getting vets to start programs, running spay neuter vans to poor areas. Some new programs, the Indian reservations (which are desperate)

He could have been a hero, instead of looking so bad and always fighting with people and being so vengeful, and just ending up in mess after mess.

But I suppose the breeders that hold his keys don't want any kind of suggestion that spaying and neutering is a good thing. It was much better for them to have a pawn to attack humane groups they didn't like, and animal control, whom they hated because animal control does things like cruelty investigations on the breeders' puppy mills and push for animal control laws.

The breeders could care less about unwanted animals. Their agenda always is "protect the breeders at any cost."

They don't care if Winograd takes the fall. They'll go back to their interests and laugh at him. As some are already.

But if the Whino had devoted himself to those things, he would be no different than the rest of us. He wants attention, he has to be different. Doesn't he strike you as the little boy no one wanted on their team?
