On Tuesday, the police in Huntersville, NC, accompanied by Char-Meck AC and representatives from the ASPCA, raided a property allegedly used for dogfighting and seized 16 adult pitbulls and 7 puppies. The dogs have been taken to a secret location. No one has been charged at this point but the investigation is ongoing.
Kathryn Destreza, ASPCA’s director of investigation, immediately began smearing the victims:
“They’re alive, but they are in various states of medical conditions,” she said. “They’re not pets by any means, not like your dog, but they’re currently going through their medical evaluations.”
They’re not pets by any means. They’re not like your dog. Gee, that’s so weird because they remind me very much of my dog:
So weird, right? But I guess they’re not like my dog somehow, even though they totally seem like my dog. Because ASPCA.
Rescued. Smeared. Taken to a secret location. And, I presume, already being used for fundraising purposes by the ASPCA.
What say you, unwashed masses? Do the dogs in Huntersville remind you of your dog? Could a dog who hasn’t been treated as a pet in past start being treated like one and possibly like it? Will anyone stand up for these dogs and demand their rights to live, to love and to be loved be protected? If only there was some kind of society for the prevention of cruelty to animals that could do that.
