So…. is AR HSUS just “allowing” ASPCA to take over, or are they working in tandem or triplicate? Or is it a ploy so no one will think it’s HSUS? We smell a big RAT.
And elitists think they can overcome HSUS, ASPCA, Best Friends and the entire shebang?
Better start hiring some lobbyists and gathering some HUGE money. We think doomsday is not far away based upon groups not fighting SB917 (worst law ever seen), splitting ranks, and then being chased NOW by APHIS. We are telling you– if there is no UNITY there will be no dogs bred and sold by nearly anyone locally; EXCEPT commercial kennels, because HSUS can’t really ruin them. Commercial dogs will still be sold. Inspected or not. A LOT easier to find AKC small breeders, or just show breeders in general. They have to be registered with AC because of their “exemption for MSN” right?
Now HAVING a pet store is beginning to sound like a good idea. Closing down a pet store is insanity. That is strictly ANIMAL RIGHTS. Animal Rights closes down pet stores, yet claims if THEY sell the animals using the exact same animals/cages,accessories, it’s just dandy.
