The Guilford Co pound in NC kills roughly half its dogs and cats – unless the pet happens to look like a Rottweiler, Chow Chow or “Pitbull”. Guilford Co kills 100% of any pets who resemble those types of dogs.
Not surprisingly, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) thinks the pound is swell. And when HSUS recently trucked nearly 200 pets from pounds in Louisiana and Mississippi after Hurricane Isaac, the multi-million dollar organization thought Guilford Co would be a great place to send 17 of them.
I wonder how many of the remaining dogs and cats “rescued” by HSUS will also be sent to places that kill pets. Even if the shelter taking in the animals doesn’t kill these particular individuals, the issue of displacement killing comes into play. Either way, pets are likely to be needlessly killed in the name of “rescue”, courtesy of HSUS, while the organization rakes in more donations to pay salaries and other expenses unrelated to saving shelter animals. Let me know if you see a story about your local pound receiving any of these Hurricane Isaac pets.

Glad to see mention of the anti-societal actions of the “animal rights” group, the H$U$. Maybe they won’t get as many millions in donations for their anti-pet war chest this time as they did with Katrina, and what they do get will be under stricter scrutiny! Once one “gets” that animal rights is NOT the same as animal welfare, it’s like an epiphany as to who the real enemy of animals and humans in our society is–the animal rights movement and it’s AR-led organizations (H$U$, et al).
While I’m glad that these 200 animals were evacuated to other areas/shelters – It’s too bad that HSUS isn’t more committed to being concerned about their eventual outcomes. So much of what HSUS does is just a splash in the pan; and then they and their million$ are gone . . .
The taxpaying citizens of Guilford County should be upset over this. The shelter kills their own animals but accepts others from out of state. I find it interesting that these animals are puppies-8 months old and younger. I just hope the shelter has them spayed/neutered before they are adopted!
In the comments for the article (the link ‘send 17 of them’), it mentions that if you don’t live in that county of NC, you can’t bring dogs there. I assume it’s in their bylaws or something. But they can take in dogs from other states because HSUS wants them to. Too bad HSUS doesn’t give the shelter any money to take care of them – and to make sure that 17 dogs already there don’t get killed for space to house new dogs.
My biggest question is what are the owners of these dogs supposed to do to get their pets back? What kind of record-keeping was done to ensure there are full, correct records of where each dog was taken from, what, if any care was given to it while in HSUS’s clutches, and where did HSUS drop each dog – and how long will that dog have before being killed – or what kind of contract for delayed ownership is being used in event of an adoption before the rightful owner is able to find out where their dog went, and how long does the rightful owner get to contest any adoption?
Oh, and I see that Tammy Grimes commented on that article – isn’t she a flack for HSUS and didn’t she used to comment here but was blocked for … being creative with the truth?
Yes, Tammy Graves is posting now under an alias after being called out recently for lying. Watch for her under “Tallulah Belle Smith”.
thanks for sharing this
the problem here is the owners of pets. They are just pleasure items for them they don’t care or love their pet.I’ll bet they didn’y leave therebooze or smokes or drugs bshind
Well, Howard, are you a bigot in real life, or do you just play one on the internet?
Must be nice to live in a place that could never be affected by any natural disaster, ever, right?
They sent some to Montgomery Alabama also.
They sent some to Houston (SPCA) but to their credit they had a $5 adpotion weekend to make room and said they adopted over 264 last weekend and looks like they just took in some more on the 4th.
Here are some that went to Dallas and McKinney. http://tinyurl.com/cmvtzoh
Houston SPCA kills Pitbulls also! I hope none were sent to them.
What about those animals that were just lost during the storm? What about the families searching for their pets? Are they already dead thanks to HSUS?
Great [/sarcasm]. At least it wasn’t like during Katrina where pets really did not stand a chance. Maybe its because I live in AZ, so I never had to deal with a hurricane, but I just couldn’t leave my dog behind like that. Id rather be in a car with them than a hotel without them. I couldn’t risk it.
I remember there was a rescue in Arkansas-Every Dog Needs A Home that took Katrina dogs and then it was raided. The owners were on the run for several years. It was nasty. Here is some information: http://gracieland.org/RW/rwnews3.html and http://www.forpitssake.org/ednah.html This is why I am concerned about animal rescue during disasters. Who knows where the animals are really going-kill shelters, fake rescues, etc.!
I know there is an organization, called Red Rover, that takes in stray dogs during wildfires but I dont know if they take in dogs during hurricanes or what the deal is there. Hopefully they do.
hurricane Harvey was no different hsus collected millions of dollars and sent animals to high kill shelters up north.
