Celebrate the Whippet Breed

Breeding of Companion Animals....

Think for a minute about how you feel about companion animals...did you grow up with dogs and cats?  Have a pet bird, gerbil or maybe a horse?  Do you think it is your 'right' to keep pets without any governmental interference?  Or should government tell you if they will let you keep a pet?

What most people do not know or realize is that the largest 'Humane Society' in the USA, the Humane Society of the USA (HSUS) is a massively funded organization that does NOT rescue any animals, runs NOT ONE animal shelter, does not fund any spay/neuter programs and in fact as it's new President states, is determined to eliminate domestic animals:

We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding ...One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.”

— Animal People News, 5/1/93

The HSUS, like it's radical compatriot P.E.T.A., is controlled by Animal-Rights activists.  HSUS' aim, like it's President so eloquently states above, is to eliminate all domesticated animals.  Simply put?  It means they would like to rid the world of dogs, cats, horses, gerbils, parrots, pigs, cows or hamsters.  They would prevent anyone from breeding another and forbid ownership of any animals.

More quotes from the Animal Rights front....see if YOU agree with their aims.

My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture.

The life of an ant and that of my child should be granted equal consideration.

Arson, property destruction, burglary, and theft are ‘acceptable crimes’ when used for the animal cause.

Serving a burger to your family today, knowing what we know, constitutes child abuse. You might as well give them weed killer.

------------------------

[I see] a spark of hope in every broken window, every torched police car.

When you see the loss of 9 billion [animal] lives each year, it's inappropriate to hold a sign or pass out a petition. It's appropriate to go out and burn down the factory farm.

My whole goal is for humans to have as little contact as possible with animals.

Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation.

- Harper's (August 1, 1988)

In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether.

Keep in mind that when your local goverment tries to limit breeding or ownership of companion animals, it is just the first step in removing your right to have a pet.  Remember the people quoted above and never forget what their real goals are.  Voice your concerns to your Mayor or City Councilmen. Do not lose your right to own and enjoy the company of a pet.

Better ideas for all goverment entities would be to support and fund TNR programs for feral cat colonies, to offer low cost spay/neuter's for pets of those who cannot afford to pay for it themselves, support programs to allow companion animal visits to rest homes and hospitals and to realize, that our lives are made richer by allowing us to keep our companion animals close.  Remind your nearest and dearest about where the money goes when given to AR groups...go to www.activistcash.com to read and see more.  Stay informed and active.

As long as he has a dog, he has a friend;
and the poorer he gets, the better friend he has."
