Animal Rights Blog

Don't breed or buy while homeless die--always adopt! U 2 could adopt & save the lives of sweet & adorable pets just like I did---just go to Petfinder.com!

I am a vegan & my cat (Sassy) & my 4 Long-haired Chihuahua Mixes (Fancy, Buffy, Bubby & Ivory) eat Natural Balance pet food. (Natural Balance has no animal by-products, ash, or meat meal). Go go dogfoodadvisor.com to check out quality pet food brands in order to avoid brands, which use meat not suitable for human consumption, and possibly even contain euthanized shelter pets (yes that happens!) (more info about that in this post: adoptpets.tumblr.com/post/72699087123/hello-i-read-that-post-you-reblogged-about-what-people).

Go to theanimalrescuesite.com once every day to feed shelter animals for free!!!!

Fuck fur, meat, diary, factory farms, hunting, puppy mills, pet breeding, animal experiments, animal testing, & circuses! Animal rights bitches fuck yeah!

The Animals in War Memorial in London is a striking tribute to the horses, donkeys, mules and dogs who lost their lives in the wars of the 20th Century. The words read, “Beneath the main heading “Animals in War”, the memorial has two inscriptions:
“This monument is dedicated to all the animals that served and died alongside British and Allied forces in wars and campaigns throughout time.”

The second, smaller inscription simply reads: “They had no choice.”

Not all Americans are applauding the military’s use of animals in combat. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has openly criticized what they consider inhumane tactics.

“These animals never enlisted; they know nothing of Iraq or Saddam Hussein, and they probably won’t survive,” says Arathi Jayaram, a spokesman for PETA, an animal rights group. “The military can detect weapons and find wounded troops with some very sophisticated equipment.”

That isn’t always the case, say military officials. Animals have unique gifts—low-light vision, biological sonar, and directional hearing—that can’t be duplicated even with the most-advanced technology.

…”For thousands of years of his history, man has made use of the capabilities of animals—their strength, extraordinary senses, swimming or flying ability,” says Tom LaPuzza, public affairs officer for the U.S. Naval Marine Mammal Program.

Presidential candidate and Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman is so impressed with the military’s heroic canines, he has proposed building a national war dog memorial in Washington, D.C.

“[They] have contributed to the security of our nation and the freedom of our people,” he says. “These are not ordinary dogs, but loyal, spirited, and courageous animals.”

You can contribute to the National Military Working Dogs Teams Memorial fund, or suggest that dolphins and other animals receive acknowledgement as well. The Brits are way ahead of us on this.

adoptpets: I don’t support animals used in war at all. They didn’t enlist and indeed they had no choice. They definitely deserve a memorial like the one in London. Rest in peace all the animals who have died in wars over the years. I’m sorry.
