In doing research for the first and then the second edition of Redemption, I amassed a large body of historical archives about the movement. And as I indicated in two prior posts, once the second edition was completed, I began packing away the material used to write the book.

Here’s more from the Redemption archives.

HSUS says TNR is inhumane and illegal, PETA does not believe in right to life for animals, an animal rights group calls PETA’s defense of killing sickening, and the cost of saving lives.
Pit Bull advocates across the country were closely following a recent trial in Virginia about whether Loudon County’s ban on Pit Bull adoptions was legal, given a provision of state law and the Attorney General’s opinion to the contrary. The case, Animal Rescue of Tidewater vs. Loudon County, Virginia ended in the County’s favor. The court held that banning the adoption of dogs deemed Pit Bull or Pit Bull-mixes did not violate the law. As a result, dogs someone says “look” like “Pit Bulls” or “Pit Bull-mixes” will continue to be killed without ever being made available for adoption.
I just returned from Montcalm County, Michigan. While the Humane Society of the United States assures people that everyone in animal sheltering has “a passion for and are dedicated to the mutual goal of saving animals’ lives” and PETA says blaming shelters is like blaming hospitals for sickness, animal advocates in Greenville, MI know better.
