The Coalition of the Misinformed for Mandatory Spay/Neuter Legislation

In Sacramento County, a "Coalition to Stop Animal Overpopulation‚ÄĚ was formed in November 2004. (Please note the dates)
The list of members at the initial meeting included moneyed, non-local groups with affiliations to PeTA with agendas which are well known to be against any kind of human-animal bond.

Ingrid Newkirk, President PeTA
"...as the surplus of cats and dogs (artificially engineered by centuries of forced breeding) declined, eventually companion animals would be phased out, and we would return to a more symbiotic relationship ­ enjoyment at a distance"

Check it out and you'll see that it is a "stitch up".

Wayne Pacelle, CEO of HSUS since June 2004 ~
"We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding."

"If I had my personal view, perhaps that might take hold. In fact, I don't want to see another dog or cat born."

The Coalition's list of members includes Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights (AVAR), Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Animal Protection Institute (API), Sacramento Area Animal Coalition (SAAC), Sacramento City Animal Services, Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty To Animals (SPCA) and Sacramento County Animal Care and Regulation (AC&R). This "Coalition" then presented to both the County and City of Sacramento a model ordinance which they proposed "works toward ending the pet overpopulation problem and the corresponding euthanasia of adoptable animals in our shelters".

The Coalition chooses to criminalize all pet owners that will not do things exactly the way they mandate. As if that were not enough, they are widely promoting heresy regarding spay and neuter, in order to promote their goals. They choose to do this despite documented health risks and the fact that this type of legislation has does NOT WORK.

Wayne Pacelle, CEO of HSUS since June 2004
"We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States ... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state." -in Full Cry Magazine, October 1, 1990.
Amazingly, California Assemblymember Lloyd Levine is obtuse enough to call the statewide version of this anti-animal bill, "the California Healthy Pets Act (AB 1634)".

How does
  • the elimination of pets
  • the criminalization of pet owners
  • blanket enforcement of invasive surgery on baby animals
  • raising fees so that only puppy and kitten mills can afford to breed
lead to Healthy Pets?

Never mind that a million dogs a year, of which 260,000 are purebred, are destroyed by animal control agencies in this state. Per year... Disregard the cost of $250 Million, more than the state spend on children's books. Per year... Conveniently dismiss the breeder's exemption specified in this law.
If you are a cheat, a stonehearted person and willing to do anything to make a buck, you'll oppose the bill. If you are ethical, pay your taxes and care about the species we call canine: you'll support a law which will INCREASE the sales price of puppies by decreasing unwanted supply. It will improve quality by taking out the unknowledgeable 'backyard breeder' you love to blame ...but still sell your stud services to...
You'll oppose this law if you agree with killing more purebred dogs than are shown at all 25 of the largest AKC shows/events. Each year.
If you have a right to breed, and sold your dogs intact, you are remiss in your duty to address the problem these past 25 years while the situation spiraled into the killing machine it is today. A million dogs. Per year.

I'm Kelly Burch and I co-bred and showed the all time top Anatolian producer, champion and winner. You want to speak with me about the bill, you can phone me at 619.244.9946

AB 1634 is necessary because... we breed.

Our (California) state legislature specializes in passing "feel good" legislation that makes a good sound bite, but represents no common sense. Unfortunately other states follow like sheep.

You keep finding these Coalitions of Evil! Jeez. Let's hunt animal-rights assholes until They're all dead.

Hi Kelly,

Check out this quote and note the date...

"Our goal is to make [the public think of] breeding [dogs and cats] like drunk driving and smoking." -- Kim Sturla, former director of the Peninsula Humane Society and Western Director of Fund for Animals, stated during Kill the Crisis, not the Animals campaign and workshops, 1991"

Your comments-

1. Your rhetoric presents a straw man argument using sweeping generalizations to create polar populations in an attempt to frame the perceived problem as something that it is not. Since control issues in such legislation are misdirected, it has been proven time and time again that it does not work. The sources and same reasons for turnover are not abated.

2. Communities working together and providing diverse venues of education and reward has been proven to reach and inspire more people with positive impact on goals.

3. Unfortunately, the general representation of a shelter as the 'best' place to get a pet by many well-meaninged people has created double edge sword with regard to the revolving door of "disposable" pets by giving people who could try a little harder, an easy out. Furthermore, shelter workers do not always understand breed issues, nor give follow up support for placement problems. It's not called a revolving door for nothing.

3. Populations with greater levels of disposable income and higher prices for animals has not proven to be a solution that ensures responsible ownership nor has anything to do breeder knowledge about behavior, training, placement or genetics.

4. One needs to take the time to evaluate previous related legislation and scrutinize the data. Creating a 'solution' without evaluating the evidence and misrepresenting the problem is as effective as tilting at windmills.

5. Your argument also illustrates an alarming short sightedness regarding genetics, selection, testing, health, and growth patterns among other issues in our breed -- the Anatolian Shepherd Dog. A working knowledge of these issues will provide enlightenment as to why this is bad legislation for our breed.

But breed considerations aside, this legislation has little to do with Healthy Pets but is deliberately framed this way because social engineering paves the path toward accomplishing the goals of a different agenda.

What does work. Having programs and events that are _inclusive_ and encourage pet owners to get involved. People reach out to each other and educate more. Events open to the public such as pet walkathons, fun matches and agility dog events encourage more people to get involved with the dog community. These events could have raffles and inexpensive entry fees which could help generate funds for inexpensive spay and neuter.

The divide and conquer method only works toward the agenda stated in the first paragraph.

Jan. Yep, the "sheeple" factor!

Critical thinking and data analysis to examine alleged correlation and causation are not strong points of many. People are often drawn by elements of shock value and easily swayed by emotive argument.

Thanks for visiting and commenting! Your blog is a refreshing read.


Ron. :) I'm still no closer to blogging about that three headed TP dispenser... LOL

More related to the blog topic, you might enjoy this site.

At the bottom of the 12 steps on each side, there is a given source and date. 1987 is the year the twelve step agenda was first published. I didn't take it seriously then.

The use of misleading or incomplete information to steer public opinion into accomplishing their goals is now well documented by the AR groups themselves ...and the media. (Pet dumpsters anyone?)

Candy, thanks for your comment. Anonymous comments on blogs can be attributed to anyone claiming to be anything. I allow anon comments since the majority are just fine.(and some are from my friends that don't have blogs)
