CHRISTIE, CHRISTIE, CHRISTIE, WHEN THE LORD SAID HE WAS GIVING AWAY SENSE, YOU WENT RUNNING FOR YOUR PIGGIE BANK AND MISSED OUT.
Christie Keith writes for the San Francisco Chronicle, and saying that is really a stretch of the imagination. She is also a breeder and she loves Nathan Winograd. So really, HH, is that news? Not really. I do remember a comment section where she denied being a breeder, at least until links were put up proving her to be a liar, nothing else from Keithie.
I don't read her "blog" but someone sent me this one. I thought it would make for a good post. No link for you however, I'm not encouraging anyone to read anything from this woman.
She begins by addressing the "opposition". Lately I've been seeing a number of distinct and similarly-worded objections to the No-Kill movement appearing with predictable regularity on public discussions. So the next time you see someone post on Facebook or a website about how the No-Kill movement should be targeting sources of shelter animals rather than shelters where the animals are killed, tell them this: We pressure shelters to reform because that's where pets are being killed.
NO CHRISTY, you have it wrong. Shelters are where pets are housed, attempts are made to reunite them with owners, adoptions, medical care are what shelters do. Get it through your head, shelters follow policies and often those policies come from another source. The shelters do a job, but the bosses are the ones you need to talk with.
Animals are being killed by shelters, so that's where we must focus our most intense efforts. Those other efforts are important in the long run, but they will not save the lives of pets in shelters right this minute.
Christie, ask yourself why those animals are there in the first place. And you want to make such a stupid statement as that? You can't kill 'em if they ain't there. And that means DON'T BREED ANY MORE WHILE THEY ARE BEING KILLED IN THE SHELTERS !!
What do you think these protests outside shelters do? What do you think the public thinks when they hear these distortions by Winograd about shelters? That is pushing the public away, not us telling them they are the cause.
And what happens when the public is pushed away? They go right into the waiting arms of breeders and Petsmart rescues. Oh how you guys love Nathie Boy. He is sending the best business ever to your doorstep.
Christie, you are a breeder, you love Winograd. Shelters report 25-60% purebred populations. YOU, CHRISTIE, are the one killing them in the shelters, you, your breeder buddies and your Messiah. You disgust US.
