Animal behaviorist and author Alexandra Semyonova provides analysis and a special report: Behavior Testing Shelter Dogs — A Summary of Where We Are Now
Warning–below [after our numbered opinions]
is exactly what was seen on the dogsbite org site–we are only showing it because:
- We believe, from a legal perspective, that shelters often have ARs working there; that many of these AR people, DO believe that all animals are innocent, and that all owners are no good.
- From same perspective, we believe that certain areas which are ultra liberal such as So Cal and San Francisco and Bay area in particular, ALWAYS blame people and never blame animals for anything—nearly 100% predictable.
- Ultimately, shelters are funded (or were funded) MORE by the State in CA, if they do NOT get an animal adopted. When that funding stopped due to lack of funds–then there is no purpose to keep the animals longer– as opposed to shorter time.
- Fiscal budgets normally don’t get larger when there is a budget problem. Thus for the animal control officers to keep their jobs, positions, and benefits, they are trying to prove they do their job by getting rid of shelter dogs.
- The ultimate goal in the Bay Area was to eliminate “breeding” and when that was done, there was nowhere to obtain a puppy except to buy one. Rescued animals then started to become more popular, and even became overpriced.
- ARs got on bandwagon to make everyone feel guilty if they wanted to BUY a puppy and tried to make people shame-faced if they DIDN’T want a “rescued” animal.
- The emotional tone was then set and lit on fire by all major AR groups including HSUS, Best Friends, ASPCA, and the rest. (All millionaire groups, mind you…)
- From there it was HSUS/ARs desire to take down the commercial kennels which brings puppies to market, online and not online.
- The bottom line is that when ARs try and cut off the supply of puppies, while forcing people NOT to buy a dog—it’s very obvious what is going on. ARs and shelters work together to force people to believe that a “rescue” is the best, safest, ultimate choice for your family. In fact, it is not necessarily true, AND in cases of medium to large dogs, it can be outright dangerous—any REHOMED or rescued dog–one takes their chances at one’s own peril. Regardless of breed.
