“These are not pet dogs we are dealing with, and so the method of euthanasia in a veterinary office is not the only humane method of euthanasia. I think that’s an important thing to say.”
This is totally unacceptable. Many, MANY Sled dogs are adopted out and adapt to living as ‘pets’ every year. The SPCA has claimed that they were ‘unadoptable’ without meeting, viewing, or temperament testing a single dog. This could eventually effect all working dogs.
Someone shot your dog? It’s okay. He wasn’t a pet anyway.
Since when does an animals job description dictate what a “humane” method of euthanisia is?
Answer - It doesn’t. Send emails, start calling, horrors like this can’t be allowed to happen. Both the owners AND the SPCA need to be held responsible for this.
Please help dog and cat overpopulation by spaying and neutering and don’t ever buy from a breeder!
Remember how your mother explained to you when you were a child what happens when an animal has to be ‘put down’ at an animal shelter? I’m sure most of you still have the image of a single animal, a cat or a dog, being gently place onto a metal table in an all white room, while a nurse injects it with a lethal poison (that will, of course, put it out of its misery quickly and painlessly) while a tear rolls down her cheek. Well, my friends, this is not how euthanasia in animal shelters really works (it is in animal hospitals, where you’ve probably had a beloved family pet put to sleep before). The animals are rounded up and placed inside of a chamber like the one above. The chamber is crammed full of dogs and cats that need to be put down before the gas is administered.
Even the “best” gas boxes can expose conscious animals to the horror of watching other animals in the box suffer from convulsions and muscular spasms as they slowly die. Old, young, and sick animals are particularly susceptible to gas-related trauma and will die slow and highly stressful deaths.
And as hard as it is to believe, there are still facilities in the U.S. that kill animals using painful electrocution or cruel decompression chambers, which make the gases in animals’ sinuses, middle ears, and intestines expand quickly, causing considerable discomfort or severe pain. Some animals survive the first go-around in decompression chambers and are recompressed because of malfunctioning equipment or an operator’s mistake or because they get trapped in air pockets. They are then put through the painful procedure all over again.
22 Reasons to Go Vegetarian!
- Vegetarians live an average of seven years longer than meat eaters.
- It’s heart healthy. Meat is full of saturated fats, which causes cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer in the United States.
- It’s good for your pocket too! Replacing meats with vegetables and fruits on your shopping list saves an average of $4,000 a year.
- Your tatas will thank you. The International Journal of Cancer has done a study that concluded that red meat is strongly associated with breast cancer.
- Meat is full of toxins. Giving it up and replacing it with healthy alternatives like fruits, vegetables, and other, natural protein sources is the first step in most body detoxifying programs.
Animals should be treated the same as you would a kid. Would you want someone just to walk up and skin your kid? Hell no!
I haven’t posted in awhile and thought it’d be appropriate to post what I wore today.
Happy Friday, guys. :)
