Where is the “over-population” when dogs and cats are transported across state lines and imported from foreign countries to fill up animal shelters?
The Impact of Animal Rights, Rescues, and Shelters on Animal Law
- By Dean A. Ayers
If your job has already been axed by the bad economy or is about to disappear, people can often do desperate things in an attempt to compensate.
Why should animal shelters be any different; especially when a person considers what is happing inside these organizations, many of which are run by animal rights activists and major big dollar supported nonprofit groups. Some are so passionate that they’d do nearly anything to keep their “humane society imperative” of their animal shelter/rescue agenda going. This information can assist in explaining why pet and animal “over-population stigma” is used as a marketing ploy for rescue and adoption industry to sell their agenda about dogs and cats (rescued for a fee) as being their alleged heroic duty of serving rescued and adopted out dogs and cats.
Tell a family that the dog they’re interested in is about to be destroyed by euthanasia due to “lack of space”, and the deal to adopt is closed. Another dog is then shipped in to take its place as the needed “chattel product” of this high dollar big animal “industry and nonprofit business” nationwide.
After mulling over the phenomenally successful statistics of voluntary spay/neuter by the general public, the question need to be asked; where are all the animal shelters/rescues getting their dogs? Regardless of the facts that most shelter dogs are adult dogs, sadly displaced for many reasons, like due to people moving to covenant-controlled homeowner associations and counties cities with extreme “pet limit” laws, the numbers in shelters do not add up.
Obviously, shelters should be going “out of business” left and right since voluntary spay/neuter nationwide is so successful. After a cursory review of nationwide available statistics it appears that animal euthanasia numbers have been increasing for 20 years, especially to eradicate the “bully breeds” yet, “over-population” is the “mantra” still used by animal shelters and animal rescues favoring their animal rights agendas for furthering their fund-raising, donations, and adopting for a fee (selling) dogs industry to an ill-informed public.
Even the numbers of irresponsible breeding “puppy mills” are nothing like people think it is. The animal rights groups nationwide have succumbed to now including “responsible” dog kennels with more than 50 dogs in perfect care and control conditions as being labeled as “puppy mills” now in their propaganda. Considering the successful voluntary rate of spay/neuter nationwide, it is highly unlikely that accidental pet owner breeding and true defined “puppy mill” irresponsible breeding are filling up animal shelters/rescues to the extent that animal rights groups and animal shelters/rescues claim they are. However, a nationwide dog “chattel” product for a fee industry(dog and cat rescues/adoptions) must come from somewhere.
Make a $$$ Profit (nonprofit) killing or be killed by euthanasia
The general public and all pet and animal owners need to be aware that Animal Rightists lobby with local Animal Shelters and Animal Rescues as “cover.”
The illegal, immoral and illicit care, cruelty and unethical practices in the shelter industry are shocking. And make no mistake, it is a BIG DOLLAR ($$$) rescue/adoption for a fee industry. Many animal rescues and shelters have become some of the most profitable pet shops around that kill anything that does not bring top dollar; or is too much work to place in adoption programs for an adoption or rescue fee. To “give away” a dog or cat, is politically incorrect and unacceptable in their animal rights agenda “chattel” industry. The only Animal Rescue/Shelter agenda acceptable for an “unadoptable” (for a fee) dog or cat is euthanasia, heralded as being so humane.
Single Breed and Pure Bred Rescue organizations have a dreadful time getting pure bred dogs and cats out of the shelter for a fee industry system, simply because shelters/rescues exploit these pure breeds to increase sales and profits (in the hundreds of dollars for a single pure bred dog or cat). Sadly, the “main stream” news media and general public have been willing to look the other way, always promoting the animal rights agenda “cause and effect” of these shelter and rescue illicit industry dog product “chattel” practices.
Why do some humane society shelters operate in this manner?
The answer is that many animal shelters and humane society agencies have become havens for Animal Rightists; shelters and rescues are exploited to spread propaganda, dog and cat “over-population” myths, and faulty statistics for marketing and donation receiving purposes. Shelters and Rescues naturally become a breeding ground for recruiting new uninformed members and animal rights activists. It’s a natural, albeit unhealthy, fit to the animal rights adoption )for a fee) industry “chattel” agenda.
It is no wonder alleged dubious shelter operations are becoming an ever-increasing problem, importing dogs and cats to “over-populate” their agencies from out of state and foreign country animal sources. Thankfully, not all shelters/rescues are this way, but the public should be aware of what is going on. Both Animal Control Authorities and Law enforcement who enforce animal laws and many animal shelters/rescues “have had” their ethics compromised, if not downright corrupted. The end-result is that generally, shelter/rescue workers and animal control authorities and their animal law enforcement agencies assisting them are no longer a credible source for accurate animal care and control information or about proper and constitutional animal behavior and breeding of quality pets, especially when it comes to crafting pet and animal laws.
Animal Rightist propaganda would have us believe that animal abuses and cruelty are at “epidemic” levels in the general public of pet owner’s homes and small hobby or one time family animal breeders, not to mention that dog attacks most certainly receive sensational press coverage.
The main stream media is only too happy to oblige any political opportunism by “animal rights lobbied” politicians, pro-animal control authorities, shelter/rescue agencies, and county or municipal law enforcement or government employees actively pursuing their own “Animal Rightist” agendas. Animal Rights designed animal ordinances have become a means to an end, exploited at the expense of the loving pet owners being made into criminals without “proper and legal “due process” in animal law in our society and in the general public nationwide.
A major percentage of the nation’s animal population, dog attacks, dog fighting, and even animal cruelty and animal care and control or nuisance behavior complaints are rare when all the facts are allegedly disclosed nationwide. As disturbing as these animal care, cruelty, and animal attack incidents are, they are not even close to being the rule… they are by far the exception. Thereby the Animal Rightists are utilizing the “exception to the rule” as an aggressive and nationwide opportunity to enact unconstitutional, intrusive, unethical, vague or illicit animal laws and animal ordinances in a horrendously distasteful and extremely dishonest manner of current and proposed animal law.
When Animal Rightists write ordinances that “Sic” Animal Control Authorities, Animal Rightist Groups allegedly posing as Law enforcement (CA. PROP 2 laws enacting private nonprofit groups to act as law enforcement on private property) on animal owners and breeders via animal crating, care, control, licensing, pet-limits, and registration schemes in animal law, the very future of healthy well-tempered pets and animals is compromised. No breeding. No pure-bred animals. No healthy genetic stock. Hence, no more pets. No cats. No dogs. No nothing! Forever more! Except for the industry of rescue/shelter adoptions (for a fee).
The only way to prevent these unconstitutional, illegal, immoral, and illicit pet owner “confiscation and seizure” horrors from taking root in your own county and community is not to go there in the first place, in allowing these “perverted” animal laws and ordinances. Again, only an open and active pet-friendly county and community create a fun and safe place to live with our pets and neighbors. Animal Rightists, thru their BIG $$$ animal adoption and rescue industry (for a fee) are destroying our current animal laws in having any “common sense” or traditional, constitutional and “intrinsic value” for our pets and animals in the law governing our private property.
A disconcerting trend is sweeping America
The Disconcerting TREND…Costly and destructive animal laws and ordinances being constructed solely by the Animal Rightists with their “lobbied” legislators at all levels of government. The reason stems from an all-out effort by Animal Rightist organizations to lobby every single locale, township, county, city, and state in the U.S.A., Canada and even worldwide. These Animal Rights Activists are searching out lawmakers to exploit and further their twisted and “perverted” agenda to destroy any authority or ability for a private property owner to legally retain and defend their pets and animals as their extended family.
It’s hard to comprehend, but the leadership of the largest and most profitable “non-profit” lobbying Animal Rights organizations has an ambitious goal in mind: Destroying all usage and ownership of domestic animals. That includes, but is not limited to, abolishing pet ownership in every aspect of our society worldwide.
Animal Rightist History Recalled
Hitler and the Nazi Party used animal rights propaganda and veganism to turn neighbor against neighbor and to vilify the Jewish people and their traditions and culture.
Dr. Martin Hulsey once a research scientist in the Department of Foods and Nutrition, University of Georgia, noted “In Nazi Germany, practices such as vivisection were characterized as Jewish (by relating them to the ritual of kosher slaughter) and thereby vilified. Subsequently, reverence for the “rights” of animals was used to justify the oppression of Jewish people.” The laws and accusation of vivisection were often used as a pretext to prosecute Jewish scientists. In 1940, a discussion was started within the administration about prohibiting pets, in order to conserve foodstuffs for human consumption. But personal interference by Hitler stopped this proposal. Ultimately a decree was published by the administration against pets, but it referred only to the pets in the possession of non-Aryan citizens.
On February 15, 1942, a decree was published prohibiting Jews from keeping pets, which the Jews found humiliating, writes Boria Sax in his book, Animals in the Third Reich: Pets, Scapegoats, and the Holocaust.
Merritt Clifton from Animal People News notes that Sax details the 32 ‘animal protection laws’ adopted by Nazi Germany in only 10 years, demonstrating that many and perhaps most were really just thinly disguised cover for oppression of Jews, gypsies, and other minorities. The first two banned kosher slaughter; the last one barred Jews from keeping pets.”
Animal Rightists know full-well that they are not conservative main-stream. However, they’ve been successful in influencing the American lexicon with politically correct words such as “over-population,” “puppy mill,” and “dog attacks.” With major financial support from Hollywood Animal Rightists and an ill-informed public donating money, to include the pet owners themselves, these Animal Rightists and their pro-bono activists and “soon fed” people spread their animal law propaganda, and inaccuracies about dog behavior. Their legislative proposal packets, slides, videos, etc. are allegedly filled with phony studies, quack testimony, faulty statistics, and other materials that are sent to county, city and state councils or legislators all over the country under the guise of being a reputable source. Once again, the “lame stream” news and main stream press have been all too happy to oblige, publishing sensationalized stories which trump up the credibility of such a nonsensical agenda.
What is missing from these news stories is that these groups do not care one whit about animals, or the welfare of animals, or the health and longevity of pets and animals. This is alleged by the fact of main stream press coverage to the effect that animal rights groups such as PETA, HSUS, or other groups alleged to be saving animals publicly claim to be helping dolphins, whales, polar bears, wolves, or elephants in Africa, etc. but these same groups are allegedly and simultaneously lobbying an all-out assault to destroy any ownership or breeding of dogs, cats, and the family pet at home. This is just plain “evil.”
Do you know the difference between Animal Welfare and Animal Rights?
“Animal Welfare” is concerned with health, safety, quality of life, and the future of our animals.
“Animal Rights” views domestic animal ownership as “slavery” and seeks to destroy the domestic animal by whatever means necessary. The fastest and most effective way to accomplish this agenda is by using lawmakers to pass prohibitive animal laws, such as mandatory spay/neuter, or breed specific ordinances (BSL) which includes any dog or animal that even “looks like” a BSL breed whether it is or not, in actuality.
The Ends Justify the Means. These abuses of “perverting” animal law are the sure result of the Animal Rightists campaign to wage death and destruction on our beloved dogs, pets and animals. Again, the “ends justify the means”.
What exactly is the end result of these animal laws?
Power to Control We the People thru our dogs, pets, and animals. The ensuing corruption contained within the intent to “pervert” influence in the animal laws and animal ordinances aids Animal Rights Activists in the accumulation of wielding more power over the people and to establish a “war chest” of financial wealth thru the very destruction of dog, cat, and pet ownership in animal law thru fees, fines, confiscations, seizures and criminal citations. Using and exploiting lawmakers wherever they deem necessary, the Animal Rightist goal of achieving power and wealth at public animal owner expense is in full force.
Even when lawmakers pursue their own agendas, where animal ordinances are concerned, the lawmaker is still a pawn of these Animal Rightist lobbyists. Allegedly by means of having lawmakers being “bought and paid for” thru major financial contributions and donations or other “perks” to get the law makers to make animal laws, according to the agendas of the Animal Rightists.
Fighting Animal Rightist Ideology and helping County, City or State Councils to Properly Reform our “perverted” Animal Rightist Law Agendas, is The Moral of This Story: The lesson to be learned by We the People is that by the time Animal Rightists have taken our counties, municipalities and states hostage and “their” perverted animal laws and ordinances pass, no one knows what has hit them until it is way too late to react with any authority to act.
Animal law and ordinances quickly “compromise the ethics” of Animal Control Authorities and the Law Enforcement agencies enforcing Animal Law with vague and confusing statutes and wordage in the law. These ruthless and irresponsible “perverted” animal law policies are most certainly not something that should have been introduced into animal law; let alone, considered, passed, and enforced by lawmakers and enforced by Law Enforcement. A majority of all these laws “ARE” Unconstitutional. However, it takes a major financial investment and good animal law attorney to be retained at a premium cost, to fight these “unconstitutional” animal laws, that have no “due process” and that is not something the majority of the people can afford to do. These Animal Rightist and lawmakers “know this” and bank on it.

So how do “We the People” take back our Constitutional Rights in Animal Law?
ANSWER: Courage to Defend Your Private Property, and Your Animals at all costs!
“Courage is not defined by a person’s ability to speak their mind, yelling like a lion’s bellow at authorities and lawmakers about proposed or enacted bad animal laws. Courage is an action of humility, putting one’s cause of honor, before his/her life, to retain the freedom and liberty, which We as People, seek, from an honorable and just God to defend our pets and animals, from oppressive men and women in their secret combinations of Animal Rights law making agendas.” ~ Quote Authored by Dean A.
