2010 Update: FINAL ANSWER: DO NOT BUY, RESCUE OR TAKE PUPPIES FROM BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SOCIETY. If you read this entire post you will see why. The editorial news story link is near the bottom. It is likely such animals were the result of one of HSUS’ seizures (seize/sell)
Best Friends Animal Society, the group that has the URLs
……….. with the statement ……….
—–> AND on their website, it states “If you have a story to share about living with a rescued pupy mill dog, about being involved in shutting down a bad breeder of ANY KIND OF PET, or if you need advice and help after buying a sick animal—WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! NOT surprisingly, Best Friends sounds just like HSUS and vice versa. NOT a coincidence, the BF Animal society is quite wealthy. And, again no surprise, the website for the “mill” sob story looks like the HSUS site designed to fool the un-educated, the TV watchers, and just plain un-informed public.
Best Friends is using the same tactic as HSUS, where HSUS has, in essence, the Snag A Breeder program, using a 6 page intake form to get animal breeders in trouble or…….HSUS has worked in concert with BF to have BF or ASPCA or other AR groups do the same thing???
ANNOUNCED in 2009, updated: Best Friends—–> is breaking ground has nearly finished or has completed — a NEW “PUPPY CARE CENTER” with puppy “pre school”, puppy “cafe”, puppy “apartments”, puppy “playground”, puppy “welcome” wing ………… can’t get any more “humanized” than that. Best Friends makes us sick.
It will probably have more amenities than most poor area city schools. Of course, this is being done so that when ‘commercially bred’ seized dogs are compared to the elite puppy park, puppy this and that at BF–it will pale in comparison. In other words, BF is saying we will take a commercially bred dog and place it in the Rodeo Drive a la Beverly Hills facility, that we, Best Friends, Saviors of of only certain hoarded dogs/cats–can do. We must remember that even a $9mill dollar PAWS facility did not save OPRAH’s parvo dog, which was adopted from Chicago PAWS.
Claiming that “Puppies aren’t Products“, Best Friends brags that up to 240 puppies, including “former commercially bred pups and mother dogs and their newborns” can be accommodated. [ Here is link to TV news video showing Missouri citizens against HSUS Missouri “mill” proposed proposition: http://tinyurl.com/286cesq]
HMM…….does that mean that HSUS and the Anti-Pet laws that HSUS intends to pass means that seizures and RAIDS of commercially run kennels will be continuing? Does it mean that HSUS has helped gain funding to build a PUPPY TOWN at Best Friends to CLOSE DOWN Pet Stores—so the seized dogs can be sold from Best Friends? Does it mean HSUS thinks it can run Hunte and Petland out of business? We think that’s what it means.
Does BF know that HSUS LOST the lawsuit in AZ against HUNTE and only 2 of 31 claims against Petland survived the first round culling in Federal Court? Does BF know that HSUS is tainted by RICO charges in Federal Court, after AR lawyers paid the sham plaintiff to testify after the case sat around for 9 (Nine) years? Does BF know that HSUS got the SPCA in Louisiana to kill every dog belonging to the Boudreaux’s overnight, with the “excuse” that they didn’t have “space” for them anywhere? Does BF know that HSUS helped design Louisiana law so that *alleged* dog(s) used for alleged ‘fighting’ is instantly killed because they call it “contraband” and that makes it “legal?” What if it was not used for fighting? Oh well, too bad, so sad??!! Unbelievable. Does BF know HSUS uses Michael Vick as spokesperson–when BF allegedly “re-trained” some of the Vick dogs? Of course they know.
—-> According to Best Friends, a 5 (five) month old puppy is “too old” to live at Best Friends, and must live at a “foster home” —but now that the PUPPY CENTER is being built— such pups could be at Best Friends. Allegedly, says Best Friends, 5 mo. old pups like the one described, are “too young” to live in areas with adult dogs, and “too old” for New Friends, where very young puppies live at the sanctuary.
Keep in mind, we are talking about a facility that calls itself a sanctuary, which had decided they were taking in no more new homeless pets not that long ago (because they have 1,600-1,800 animals already) yet as Best Friends has discovered apparently, they can move those commercially bred pups out faster than they can sell them. And no doubt after getting stores closed down, and after their campaign to stop commercial kennels, the public is asking BF for commercially bred dogs. But is that proper? Is BF a “PETSTORE?”
All of this allegedly means BF can “take in more puppies.” Allegedly donations from the Enrietto and Kallas Foundation and the Ebay Foundation are being used to build the Puppy Center.
—-> According to the Best Friends website, BF took off the comments board re the new Puppy Center, because disgruntled people were voicing their personal agendas to attack Best Friends, BF then claims that they are suspending comments because they don’t have the processes in place to maintain commenting rules. [No, it wasn’t us that did the commenting, but had we seen it, we would have chimed in as well.]
But let’s not forget, BF used $140,000 of other people’s donations to go and get those stray dogs in Lebanon. Let’s see, dogs dying in shelters every day in the USA, but BF must spend the $$$$ to fly to Lebanon to get rescued dogs. But a 5 mo. old puppy must go to foster care. That is one of the most stupid things we have ever read.
——> Best Friends TELLS the public NOT to buy puppies. Best Friends either bought or had the URL “dontbuypuppies” pointed to their site where they blast pet stores and blast people who want to buy a puppy. Yet BF takes the very pups that they tell people NOT to buy, and then *they* resell them!
—–> BF+ HSUS is instrumental in helping cause the demise of pet related jobs, the closure of pet stores, and they tell the public that animals are not property, and that people should not advertise pets online, and that no animals or pets should ever be sold in a pet store—-yet they are building a PUPPY CENTER to sell puppies themselves. They will of course, call it adoption or rescue or something else. Nevertheless, they don’t give them away for free.
—–> Best Friends and their Millions and Millions of $$$$$, claims it can’t keep a 5mo old puppy on the premises and it has to go to foster care. According to HSUS, BF has said that it costs $190,000 to “rehab” one dog. That’s what HSUS employee testified to in Court in NC. [Sure, it costs that much if you are given Michael Vick Million $$ to rehab a dog.] If you aren’t given the $$$$ then you tell the Court you can’t afford it. Smell a rat??? Maybe a pack of rat lies??
—–> BUT NOW Best Friends builds a PUPPY CENTER for seized commercially bred puppies? Why doesn’t BF just stop hoarding thousands of dogs, get homes for all of them, and THEN spend $$$ on placing the “hard to place” dogs? Because BF is NOT there to do that. Best Friends is there to weave a mindset, to push an agenda against animals as property, it’s not any different than HSUS, except BF WILL rehab dogs if you pay them enough $$$. That is probably the difference.
—–> Is this not so very obvious??
1. HSUS does the raids, gets the propaganda going
2. HSUS+Best Friends rallies the Animal Rights people, OPRAH+Ellen, and the public, pushing to shut down pet stores ,+ cause people to lose their jobs
3. They then sell the commercially bred puppies, gleefully exclaiming there are wonderful puppies for sale by Best Friends and other groups?
4. Yet if the exact same puppies are sold by ANY OTHER STORE, ANY OTHER BREEDER, those same exact dogs are called the products of scum buckets? And the buyers are abusers?<—
The hypocrisy of Best Friends and HSUS is disgusting. Check this out if you haven’t seen it before…. re Best Friends……………….
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/615717/Best-Friends-Animal-Society-in-Southern-Utah-News There comes a point in time, where the public masses have to start thinking clearly.
We think that time has come, and has been here for years—-but only now does HSUS have the $$$$ (post Katrina mind you)—-to spend Millions and Millions on media lobbying, advertising, and propaganda galore. And let’s not forget those 10,000+ hours of FREE legal hours donated to HSUS. American lawyer even put that online, and gave us the exact number of pro bono hours at no cost to HSUS, PLUS American lawyer online even outright stated, HSUS is Animal Rights!! [See post on this blog for that story]
The story above, indicates that Best Friends paid ($140,000) to IMPORT “rescued” dogs from Beruit Lebanon. So welfarists who drove 18 hrs to help the “Lebanon rescue dogs at Best Friends”, picked up several stray dogs along the way to drop off at Best Friends. One was emaciated and ill. The other was a 20lb pitbull type dog.
Best Friends flat out rejected both dogs and said they were “full” and the dogs slept in the car because BF said the dog might be contagious. (It was later found it was not contagious) Needless to say, both gals that had driven the 18hr to BF have sworn off BF for life as a complete sham.
—–> And, let’s not forget, Michael Mountain, former President of Best Friends, either on “sabbatical” or disengaged [on the surface] from Best Friends temporarily since Fall of 2008, has proven to be a hindrance to the corporation apparently, in part due to his registration of the Best Friends Corporation (Louisiana) naming the Process Church. This was announced years ago by online sources. The Process Church which, unfortunately, has a sordid history involving Satan worship and other lurid details. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/3557552/Process-Church-Teachings
This link has a summary…
“Two sinister Scientology graduates of the 60s were Robert DeGrimston and his wife Mary Ann. He was a former architecture student and she was a former prostitute who believed herself to be Joseph Goebbels incarnate. Both had an insatiable preoccupation with death and violence and it is perhaps inevitable that they ended up in San Francisco in 1967 where they established themselves as The Process Church of the Final Judgement.” These are the people that Mountain and friends joined up with. De Grimston has authored plenty of graphic writings on Satan, and why men should follow.
Uh, according to the research Petdefense did, that’s putting it very, very mildly. So Best Friends figured they need to change their outward appearances, and Mountain is not the editor of the BF magazine anymore. For now, anyway.
It should be known that in Satan worship rules, KILLING an animal is considered a SIN. [Killing a human is not named as a sin, but harming kids is named] The Process Church people were often traveling with dogs and in the company of dogs, and it was alleged that dogs were always used in order to better determine the apocalypse which was coming.
There is also other info on this subject here (on the blog) after research was done. BF Animal Society’s actions speak for themselves. They spent $140,000 to take in Lebanon dogs (when they could have gotten free shelter dogs in the USA) but wouldn’t take in 2 strays from Kansas alleging that BF was “full.”
