ASPCA and Best Friends in bed together at the cost of lives?

There is seriously something wrong with our society when we choose lobbyists and greed over animals lives and rights! When did it become ok to choose which species lives and dies, and when or how to regulate them? Especially when we let our own population numbers get so totally out of control. priorities need to change here folks!

I just want to say that I have been a HUGE supporter of Best Friends Animal Society, I love what they do, and they have done a lot, some of the Vick dogs would be dead today if not for best friends, so they had me at hello on that one, but I find this article very disturbing. In fact I agree they are positioning themselves for something, much like the HSUS did several times over including using Michael Vick for much-needed press, and visa versa, I feel that choosing not to support a bill that is meant to protect and save the lives of animals, well I’m just going to say it.., they DISGUST me! and threatening to pull their support from Pets Alive if they spoke out, that dictatorship and abusive. To find out what I am talking about please see the link below:


Kerry and Matt you have my full support, and I’m sorry as one of the “Little Guys” as well, I know how you feel being dependant on others for help, if there was ever a Cause or Group to champion, its them!

I have found that it is always best to do your homework on any organization you plan to donate to. Check out their standing into and with All their affiliates and their policies first, you never know where the money will go! I have also said before, and this is in the posts of many advocacy and animal blogs and welfare websites, that the VP”S in the ASPCA and SPCA, rake in a whopping $200,000.00 to $500,000.00 a year as a salary. Not cool!

I’m all for people getting paid, but getting rich off those donations and government funding, or using the funds to lobby or grease palms, is soooo not cool! modest salaries, an uncorruptable moral is what is needed! I know, I’m a dreamer but come on! it is possible.

 I just feel sick that we cannot progress in animal protection and rights, stand behind legislation that ensures these animals will be protected.

I think its time we all evaluate how we give money and wash our hands of it after we have, it certainly puts into perspective for me that maybe smaller  shelters and advocacy and rescue groups are the way to go, because it seems to me that being the animals “SAVIOURS” is big business, and we need to find out whats behind it!


About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
