This is Bob. He was found wandering the streets and a good Samaritan brought him to the shelter. Bob has been so depressed at the shelter that families keep passing him over. And now, Bob’s time is UP! He’s been at the shelter past the mandatory hold period and overcrowding is a real problem at this facility. Unless you can take him in and give him a home by 8am tomorrow, he will be destroyed to make space for more homeless family members. Please do not contact the shelter directly as the staff will sometimes kill early, out of spite, if they receive angry phone calls from people about their practices. When that happens, they usually refuse to allow volunteers back in for awhile and then we can’t network to help the shelter residents. Also, it’s really not the staff’s fault – they HAVE TO kill to make room. It’s the irresponsible public’s fault for bearing children who grow up and lose their jobs, become addicts, etc. and wind up on the streets. This is why we need laws for mandatory sterilization of all people NOW! Please crosspost!
If you find this mock ad disgusting and offensive on many levels, you are not alone. But this is the exact type of ad that gets posted online every day, thousands of times over, by volunteers on behalf of homeless pets in America’s animal shelters. Yes, I know people and pets are not the same. But they are both family members with a right to life. There is no need to kill healthy, friendly shelter pets for space and no need to make excuses for those doing the killing. So why do we accept these lies from our taxpayer funded animal shelters?
If this was how homeless people in your community were “sheltered”, would you be moved to take action to stop the killing? Would you speak up and demand reform at your local shelter? Would you be willing to organize and approach your county council about the need for change? If so, you are not alone. We are a humane society. Join us.
