And it just keeps rolling along, folks. This week this article, http://oncentral.org/news/2011/08/24/strays-rise-south-la/, focused on the increased impounds and euthanization under the reign of Queen Barnette. Duh, doesn't this always happen when the public thinks you are going "No Kill"? Of course it does, history proves it. In every case of an open door shelter going "No Kill", suddenly animals come out of the woodwork, owners line up to relinquish their pets, the streets become overrun, adoptions fall. It's just a fact of this movement. So why is Breeder Barnette so astounded at the rise in LA City? Guess she forgot to read the Book of "No Kill".
This article shows that these areas are still having to euthanize for time and space. http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/anna_griffin/index.ssf/2011/05/portland_couple_pushes_multnom.html
"Jon Gramstad and Barbara Spears are less concerned with such warm and fuzzy details than they are with the cold, unhappy numbers: Forty-three percent of the 8,300 dogs and cats brought into the shelter last year ended up dead."
Yet, the transports go into Portland on a regular basis. When will people learn that this is a scam, designed to put pressure on the shelters. The receiving "rescues" are allowing their own local shelter animals to die while they are helping the world by bringing in dogs that will "keep people from buying from breeders". What a flimsy excuse for causing so many deaths.
BREEDER BARNETTE, WHAT IS ASTOUNDING IS THAT YOU ARE STILL IN LA!!!!!!!!!!!!
