When Choosing A Pup, Research ‘Breeds’ Results

4 The Love Of Animals

Here are some things to consider when comparing different dog breeds: • Do you live in an apartment or a house with a small backyard? If so, make sure to get a breed that plays nice with both. If your local shelter doesn’t have the breed you want, many animal rescue agencies specialize in particular dog breeds; an easy Google search actually pointed me to specialized animal rescues shelters. The following is a guest post from Kevin Sloan.

Breed Bans are NOT the Answer

Primate Breeding Facility Generates Controversy In Puerto Rico Itself

Critter News

They've been planning to build a facility to breed research monkeys in Puerto Rico for some time. Good! I come down hard on Puerto Rico, ever since the scandal in which dogs were being thrown off bridges by an animal control company. Plus, the horrible pictures I've seen of strays in Puerto Rico. Plus the fact that I personally know the Latin attitude towards animals. Plus, well, you get this picture.

The proposed primate breeding facility would violate both the letter and the spirit of Puerto Rico’s progressive new law, which strictly limits the use of animals in experimentation.

A naked chicken!

On Bad Presidential Puppy Decisions

Animal Person

But I didn't campaign for a presidential greyhound for exactly the same reason Obama's decision was disappointing: it glorifies pure breed dogs. It's disheartening to know that after being educated about the "pet" trade and the implications of buying from a breeder, and seeming to understand the problems and issues, we nevertheless will have yet another pure breed dog in the White House.

Sandpiper Species Heading Towards Extinction

Critter News

In 2000, around 1,000 breeding pairs were known, but by 2009, the number had plummeted to just 120-220 pairs, a decline of 88%. During that time, adult survival appeared unchanged and breeding success was reasonable, but the recruitment of young birds back into the adult population was zero in all but one of the years studied. Really sad.

More Clarity About Family Farms

Animal Person

The marketing of an operation of breeding and slaughtering sentient nonhumans as a family farm (here, Bell straddles the line) is supposed to trigger some kind of compassion for the humans. In " Move to Limit 'Factor Farms' Gains Momentum " in today's New York Times , we learn that farmers in Ohio have agreed to phase out gestation crates within 15 years and veal crates by 2017. I won't get into whether I find that to be a victory.

Critter News

To encourage cruelty in the name of science can only destroy the finer emotions of affection and sympathy, and breed an unfeeling callousness in the young towards suffering in all living creatures. -- Eleanor Roosevelt.

Burning Bunnies in Sweden

Critter News

Many of them are domestic pets released by uncaring owners which then go on to breed. In Sweden, the way they deal with rabbit problems is to shoot them and burn them for fuel. The targeted rabbits are the unwanted inhabitants of capital Stockholm's parks, which are culled to protect the shrubs and trees which they gorge on. Six thousand were killed last year, frozen and their cadavers sent to a special heating plant in Karlskoga, central Sweden.
