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:
We got us a whole bunch of "compassionate conservatives" burning the midnight oil tonight, don't we?...;)
One or two dogs is a whole lot different than the entire population of a CITY and STATE.
Every shelter in every state is full. Most of them will end up euthanized. Have you ever tried putting a scared, unfamiliar dog into a helecopter with no doors? guess what happens when it bites the soldier and he lets go of it at a few hundred feet above the ground.
The more people I meet, the more I like my dog.
Yet another gutless keyboard gunslinger.
Given the choice, would your husband save you or your children before he saved your pet?
That's what I meant by pet nut.
I've loved my pets and have cried over them when I burried them. But they're just not worth a human's life.
I'll take you bet, but you might have to wait 'til next month when I collect some more client's checks and my collarbone has fully fused.
Thank you for the link to the petition. And please ignore all of these defeatist naysayers. We Americans are quite capable of saving the people AND the animals. It's the humane and right thing to do.
Jefferson County is killing them, not New Orleans. Those pets have already been eaten.
No it's not. The point is there is enough money, enough resources, enough homes, enough love to go around.
And part of my point was that if the pets had been allowed to be evacuated in the first place with the humans (and if hotels and shelters had allowed pets), then the HUMAN rescue effort NOW wouldn't be nearly as great, and the human losses wouldn't be as great. People chose not to evacuate because they loved their pets so much that they wouldn't leave them. As a result, the HUMAN rescue job was bigger than it needed to be, which cost more money than it needed to cost, and more people died than needed to die.
You think it doesn't take money to clean up all the dead animals that will be left in another week or two? If they could have been evacuated in the first place, we wouldn't have all the "dangers" and expenses we are going to have due to "packs of wild dogs" and "feral cats" and "rabies" (overblown myth) and rotting animals, etc.
"But it is not conjecture that some people died when they stayed behind due to their pets."
And all these years, I thought Darwin was wrong. Oh well, the gene pool needs a good purge every now and then.

Someone with more knowledge may want to check out OP and make sure he is not a DU troll.
"Most of them will end up euthanized."
People all over the country are already calling shelters begging to adopt any pets who aren't claimed.
They love the idea of having a "disaster survivor" in the family.
I see it all the time locally.
Some stray dog or cat beats the odds and people nearly mob the SPCA trying to adopt it.
And I would imagine that trained soldiers have sense enough to fashion temporary muzzles.
[who even mentioned soldiers rescuing them anyway? we're talking privately funded civilian animal rescuers here]
You're right about that, I guess I was tongue tie LOL!
What it is to me is a diversion of resources and questionable agents operating in a disaster area.
Yea right. I've had to shoot my own dog before, wasn't pleasant, but it was better that letting it suffer. It's not a sporting even either. Nice dramatic touch though.
You bet. It's America and the private party has the right to do this. That does not mean they are not misguided, stupid, and wrong. Because the focus on saving pets when people are still in trouble is sickening to this proud American.

Even a blind pig finds an acorn now and then.
Lefties or not, what they're trying to do with *this* is a good thing.
[now quit trying to spook the herd]...;)
What makes you think it wouldn't bother any of us, too? If you're really farm-raised, you know the mindset.
Is that like Poppycock or something?
It's not piffle, it's the truth. But these farce groups like the money you send them, keep giving and loving. They'll keep tagging and bagging, sending their weekly load to the landfill
