Humane Society Endorses Obama

Critter News

The Obama-Biden ticket is the better choice on animal protection, and we urge all voters who care about the humane treatment of animals, no matter what their party affiliation, to vote for them.

Of course, this is the military, so why should they be any better than humanity in general?) Frizzell has encountered those who trap feral cats with the intent of spaying or neutering them, vaccinating them and then releasing them back into the wild. It is their belief, he said, that rendering most of the feral cats sexually inactive will humanely decrease their numbers. ‘‘The Feral cats may be an animal problem, but there is a human solution.

Breast Cancer in Pets

4 The Love Of Animals

While breast cancer awareness month for people might be over, it’s important to realize that we humans aren’t the only ones affected by the disease. Mammary gland tumors are common in dogs and cats, especially those that aren’t spayed or were spayed late in age. Dogs: • 25% (1 in 4) of un-spayed female dogs will get mammary cancer. Spaying a dog before their first heat will reduce the chance of breast cancer to almost zero.

On Dominance and Animal Birth Control

Animal Person

When taking the issue to simplest common denominator, spaying/neutering is essentially exercising human dominance over non-human animals.

Meanwhile, I would love to be able to have some kind of law against human beings producing/reproducing more than one person per person.

So here is a bit of a reminder to please spay and neuter your pets… it’s so sad that these gorgeous kittens won’t know the fun of having a human servant! Some time ago a neighborhood stray cat came to the yard to have her kittens.

Creature Update

Vetsulin was the perfect new product, except for the fact that it's animal (pig) based, unlike human insulins, and then there was the problem with quality control that was first reported last year. As many of you know, 2009 was chock full of creature-related drama for me.

When Is a Dog Unadoptable?

Critter News

One day while I was volunteering I met a little pit bull puppy who was recovering from a spaying. There are also many "feral" and "food-aggressive" personality types in humans, but we don't put them down.) I rejoined my local animal shelter's volunteer program a few months ago (long story as to why I quit in the first place). Very sweet and gentle animal (I have a soft spot for pits.and pugs!) The puppy seemed too thin to me so I asked about her story.

What To Do If You Find a Pit Bull

4 The Love Of Animals

However, any breed of dog that has been abused, neglected, or homeless may be aggressive to humans or other dogs. If you find that dog of any breed is aggressive to humans, it is best to notify the relevant authorities. Another option is to call your local Human Society or Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, also known as the SPCA. There are programs that exist that make costly vaccines and spaying/neutering affordable. •

Change will take place only when governments work with local and international animal welfare groups and concerned individuals to address the root of the problem through education and humane methods of population control, such as spaying and neutering.
