Fire up your animal loving friends to vote.. It's easy and it works!!

Americans spend an incredible amount of money on their beloved pets.. God love'm... I'm one of them. Illinois, where I live was ON track to elect a very radical governor in 2010. As tea pea party radical as they come. Animal activists in the state dug up factual stories of his previous voting record on unnecessary mass animal euthanasia. It really helped slam the door in his sorry face, thank god.

Seamus may be an old story, but still relevant. Remind your animal loving friends of what he did and watch them go into hyper vigilant mode. Must against mittens

1. Tying animal rights and Seamus to the election..

 

might not be a good idea so much. You do know that PETA is one of the worst kill shelters...

4. I'll presume you're a no-kill supporter (Graphic text enclosed)

that said, no kill, though a nice idea and lofty dream, just isn't possible with all the animals that are thrown away yearly in our society.

So... would you rather animals be locked into a wooden box, a truck backed up to the box, a hose attached to the trucks' tailpipe, then attached to the box and someone starting the truck and letting it run--that's how low-cost "shelters" euthanize their animals. BTW, often, the animals at the bottom of the box are still alive, so they take the dead animals out, close the box up, and continue gassing the remaining animals (I won't go into the low-cost "shelters" that tie animals to a tree and shoot them between the eyes--better than the kill boxes but still). Or would you rather have PETA take the animal, spend a day with it, giving it love, attention & food then placing the animal alone (no other animals to witness the process) in a quiet room and use a quick, painless injection to euthanize the animal?

I've seen how PETA handles the animals they are going to euthanize, I've seen how employees spend their free time delivering straw and dog houses to chained animals, all the while trying to educate the people about why chaining their animals year-round is bad. I've seen PETA deliver animal food to needy families so the animals don't starve. I've personally bagged straw for those chained animals. I went down to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and watched PETA rescue animals no one else would, that other people said should have just been left on the street to be shot.

So, don't complain about what PETA does or doesn't do because despite their faults, they do real work and they help animals and don't ask for anything in return other than for supporters to continue supporting their work.

5. K&R! This is a very good point!

My aunt had a cat named Mittens, wonder if she thinks about that now, LOL!

Thanks for the reminder, Thekaspervote! And welcome to DU!
