Someone sent me this link and I cracked up. As most of you know I love to make up names. When I saw this KCDogPoop I just knew I had to post.
For those unfamiliar with this blowhard, he is a Whinonette of the first degree. And as we say back home, he ain't got the sense to come in outta a shower of rain. He parrots the Whino with his support of doing away with household limits. Hell, people can't and don't take care of the ones they have now, so let's make it so they can have more?????
According to the National Council on Pet Population study published in the Journal of Applied Animal Science, the ten reasons why people relinquish their pets are as follows:
1. Moving - 7%
2. Landlord not allowing pets - 6%
3. Too many animals in household - 4%
4. Cost of pet maintenance - 5%
5. Owner having personal problems - 4%
6. Inadequate facilities - 4%
7. No homes available for litter mates - 3%
8. Having no time for pets - 4%
9. Pet illness - 4%
10. Biting - 3%
So KCDogPoop says give them MORE animals, yep, that's his solution.
1. Moving will go soooo much more easy if you just add another pet.
2. Landlord says no to your wonderful pet, well let that landlord look at the face of not one but several more and he would just have to change his mind.
3. And what is one more when you already have a house full and overrunning with feces? Just another pile, you won't know the difference.
4. If you can't afford to feed what you have, add more and go dumpster diving. Always lots of food in there.
5. Personal problem got you down? Lose your job and move back in with MaMa. Nothing like adding another responsibility to perk you up.
6. So what that you don't have a roof over your head, go get another pet, they can keep you warm as you sleep under that bridge by the LA River.
7. What do you mean no homes? There are plenty of homes, there's no pet overpopulation.
8. No time for your pet? You can walk multiple dogs at the same time so no problem and you can always leave the gate open and let them take care of themselves.
9. And when your pet gets sick, go get another one to keep it company. Quit your job and be a stay at home pet care provider.
10. Your dog just bit the neighbor? Get another dog to keep it company and it won't get into trouble, hell get two more.
On top of doing away with household restrictions, KCDogPoop also says that having fencing is a "ridiculous restriction". So just imagine with no household limits, the hoarder next door with 200 dogs and no containment. Lovely thought, huh? I guess it is ridiculous to this idiot to keep pets safe as well.
"No Kill relies on having un-restrictive animal control laws. Pet limit laws decrease the number of foster homes that are available. Mandatory spay/neuter laws, Breed Specific Laws, and many tethering laws only encourage animal control officers to confiscate animals from homes — increasing the number of animals that need to be found homes. The first option should always be to keep an animal in the home it is already in and improve its life there vs confiscation.
Hopefully that helps clear up any confusion out there."
Sounds like you are a little more than confused, KCDogPoop. Love the part about keeping an animal in the home, in other words, living a life at the end of a chain is fine by this guy, living in filth is okay with this guy, living in animal hell is okay with this guy. He ain't seen the things I have seen or he would singing a different tune. Can't you see why the dogmen and breeders love this guy?
This dickhead thinks there are plenty of homes based on a "formula" drawn up by his "puppetmaster", the Whino. I suppose that when you count all the people who have allergies to pets, renters who can't have pets, people who don't want a pet, people who are scared of dogs, people whose lifestyle means traveling all the time, people who own pets now and shouldn't, and those who already are over household limits with pets, yeah, it makes sense that there are plenty of homes.
So those of us who prefer and fight for a pet's QUALITY of life and believe that there are far worse things than euthanasia in the shelter are labeled as animal killers. We are killing animals in greater numbers than before the Whino's evil program took the last decade of taking the focus off spay/neuter and putting it on adoptions. People are greedy, selfish, and what is happening is disturbing but what is more so is the above ground pet cemeteries called "No Kill shelters", filthy conditions, living in their feces, stack 'em and crate 'em. And then the ones that are turned away by the "No Kill" shelters to be dumped in the streets, abandoned to take care of themselves, or given to the mentally ill hoarders in order to save their euthanasia numbers. And when we try to pass laws that can help these things, we hear that we are intruding on constitutional rights because these animals are property.
This is one sick puppy, this KCDogPoop, Brent Toellner. Only if you are a dogman or breeder does he make any sense. When the good Lord yelled out that he was giving away common sense, Brent thought he said something else and he ran the other way because he definitely got left out.
Doesn't it remind you of Frankstein and his monster? All Frankie cared about was that the monster was alive but what kind of life? We have an obligation to strive for a quality of life for animals, not a quantity of life in hell.
