Skip to comments.Cease Fire on Animals Streets of New Orleans (Please Sign Petition)
Posted on 09/10/2005 11:21:16 PM PDT by BagCamAddict
Please sign the online petition to stop the killing of pets in New Orleans. Conflicting reports abound, regarding whether orders have been given to shoot abandoned pets. But just in case it is or becomes true, please sign the online petitions below to STOP the killing:
And the following petition adds the words "and their pets" to the order to evacuate people from New Orleans. Please sign it also:
And they currently have the greatest power to save the pets.
To indulge myself in a little hypothetical hyperbole, would you refuse to have your life saved from a natrual disaster because of a political principal?
Because the "wrong wing" came to get you?
Dogs don't vote and won't care what "wing" fishes them out of the water and feeds them.
Good lord...can't you come up with a *different* angle to harp on, at least?
And not all of them are kill factories. The Humane Society does alot of euthanizing, but not all do. My breed always tries to rescue our dogs from kill shelters and find permanent homes for them. But there are "no-kill" shelters out there. Shades of gray, of course.
Your post is completely irrevelant because we are talking about DOGS in this thread. Not human beings like me.
If SHTF where you live, you feed Fido, evacuate yourself with fido, you be prepared to wok Fido or just waste it to avoid its torture in thirst, famine, filth and lonliness.
Outside of search and rescue personnel, practically *nobody* is equipped for a disaster such as this.
Another diversion from the intention of the efforts.
These people are;
Send -them- money and then you can put your mind at ease.
Welcome to Free Republic. Baiting other posters is a good way to lose your posting privileges.
The fact remains that the OP posted and is promoting a radical left wing extremist site. And you seem to see that as just fine.
I find it offensive to promote the web sites of our enemies. Don't you?
Not like this:
Two on PETA staff charged with cruelty to animals
And lots more...
Look, it's real simple. If these "rescuers" are qualified to operate in the area, they *should* be helping secure the area. If they're not qualified, they shouldn't be in the area.
There is no third way no matter how much hyperbole you pour out.
You get a grip. I'm not going to argue "importance" of dogs vs. children or elderly. I didn't say anything about "importance" so don't put words into my mouth. I said what I meant, which is that we're responsible for their welfare when we bring them into our homes as our pets. And we shouldn't HAVE to choose to rescue or evacuate one OR the other. If a person can't be a responsible pet owner, which includes taking CARE of them, then they shouldn't have pets in the first place. Can you grip that??
You're trapped in Boston?!?
You have my sympathies.
[No wonder you're so punchy]....LOL!
He already knew that information if he signed the petition. So your defense falls flat.
OK, in this case there were pets left behind. Do you feel that rescuing the pets is as important as rescuing the humans?
A simple yes or no will suffice.
Exactly my point. It's not just a triage of people, it's a triage *area*. Unqualilfied people are just going to get themselves and others hurt.
A dog found "running in a pack getting vicious" is one thing. Somebody's cat or dog who always stayed inside (particular cats) is another.
Still on that, are you? Once again, they are not saving animals at the expense of people. I think you have something against animals. Did your daddy give away your dog when you were a child or something?
Some did take their pets and had their pets taken from them to be dropped by the roadside.
What of those people?
Have they no right to weep?
And to clarify things a bit, I am furious at those who had the means to move their pets but figured "it'll only be a couple of days and we'll be back".
I'm also p*ssed at those who had exceptionally ample warning; enough time, in fact, to -walk- out if they had no other way.
If I knew something like that storm was headed my way, I would have -all- my animals gone from here with plenty of time to spare.
There would be no "oh, it'll only be a couple of days" crap, either.
