Summary of Common Misrepresentations by Animal Rights:
What is the actual hidden agenda of all animal rights? Hint: It ain’t about those shelter dogs!! You can get that out of your mind right away.
The 12 Steps of Animal Rights can be found on our links column to the right on this blog. That explains the entire agenda. Below are two AR goals which affect our ownership of animals/pets, businesses related to pets, jobs related to pets, commerce in pet industries, and far more.
The agenda of all animal rights (AR) is:
(1) To stop the pet trade/animal commerce, the selling and buying of animals, the use of animals for any purpose, including food/any products, testing and any other uses. The 2 major AR groups are HSUS/Peta. This is a very extreme belief whether or not the AR group says it publicly. This is most clearly, NOT animal welfare. [Animal welfare does not try to change the legal status of animals]
(2) To change the LAW in the USA where animals would NOT be classified as property. Animals are legally classified as property nearly universally in the USA. Attempts to change this legality has not progressed much but HSUS keeps filing new laws to try and change it anyway.
The pdf list above (primer) has some of the most common nonsense used by animal extremists, understand that when they say anything, it’s almost always BS, because subterfuge and misrepresentations is used for almost everything they do. Animal rights is based on a lifestyle belief, not facts, that animals are NOT property.
Ignorance and failure to act while dogs are imported from third world countries, dogs are bought from commercial breeders by dog rescues, and then resold as “adopted”, dogs are shipped off weekly from Central California and Los Angeles to Oregon, dogs from Central Mexico are brought into Chico,CA, dogs are flown in from Taiwan to San Francisco, dogs are imported from Puerto Rico to the Eastern Seaboard– this all indicates there are many willing owners out there—and a shortage of desirable dogs!!
That is not called overpopulation. That is called fleecing the public and claiming “overpopulation.”
Since we know which dogs are not being adopted, it makes sense to target the logical source of these animals. And the source is usually the lower economic areas that have the highest shelter kill rate. Those areas are well known in most communities. Targeted, focused low cost/free altering or non surgical birth control for those pets is the logical solution.
Shelters don’t usually do this because many shelters are led by animal rights people, who instead, STEER THE SHELTERS INTO THIS:
“We can mandate altering +force everyone to comply. Then when they don’t comply, we fine ‘em+ that will make they comply.”
Unknown to most of the public, animal rights extremists are not really interested in saving shelter animals, and that’s why they continue to BLAME breeders. Their ACTUAL target IS breeders, but they use shelter animals simply as the ruse, the ploy, the crutch.
IF YOU REMEMBER NOTHING ELSE, AT LEAST MEMORIZE THIS.
Shelter animals are a convenient EXCUSE for targeting breeders, despite the very obvious FACTS that shelter dogs are mostly NOT the product of purposeful breeders. Do we really think animal extremists don’t know that? Of course they know it.
It only takes one trip to a shelter to see what dogs are not sold, and which cats (adults/ferals).
Most animal extremists also use generalizations such as “intact dogs bite people more” or “altered dogs are safer”……… the bottom line is, they will say anything to try and make everyone believe that if a dog is intact, it’s going to cause you harm. The intended purpose of this is obviously to get rid of dogs being born. Remember, the extremists love to say you can’t buy a dog. But it’s ok for someone to buy their rescued dog?
Why dogs from Mexico, dogs from Puerto Rico, dogs from Taiwan and even cats are imported from England? Why there is a waiting line for all these dogs? Why so-called “rescues” are obtaining milled dogs by buying them at auction, and then spending over $350,000 on vet care while other shelter animals are left to die? Why do shelters release borderline + questionable animals which have failed temperament testing instead of sending out only the dogs which have good temperaments?
Animal extremists such as Peta and HSUS lure the young and naive, especially ONLINE + spend huge time, money, energy and hire TV personalities and movie stars to work on closing down pet stores, hobby breeders, commercial breeders and individuals from advertising + selling their own dogs, to cut off the supply of desirable (in demand small breed) dogs to the public, claiming that such dogs should not be purchased, and that owners ‘should be’ adopting from a shelter.
