“The Utah Senate voted unanimously… in favor of a bill that would end gas chamber euthanasia for animals in the state… Utah is one of only four states where some animal shelters are still using gas chamber[s].” The bill now goes before the House.

“The Utah Senate voted unanimously… in favor of a bill that would end gas chamber euthanasia for animals in the state…” Illinois legislation would make it illegal for pet stores to sell commercially-bred puppies and kittens. Dogs have turned humanity into slaves. A new report in USA Today says that, “Since Seresto flea and tick collars were introduced in 2012, the EPA has received incident reports of at least 1,698 related pet deaths.” A growing number of academics are trying to keep people segregated by color on the proverbial bus and throw animals under it. The number of communities placing over 95% and as high as 99% of the animals is increasing. And Newsweek reported that PETA has killed “tens of thousands of animals.” Unfortunately, they also bought into one of PETA’s two big lies as to why they kill so many.

In case you missed it:

– “The Utah Senate voted unanimously… in favor of a bill that would end gas chamber euthanasia for animals in the state… Utah is one of only four states where some animal shelters are still using gas chamber[s].” The bill now goes before the House.

– Illinois legislation would make it illegal for pet stores to sell commercially-bred puppies and kittens. If they want to offer animals, House Bill 3646 would require that “the dog or cat is obtained from an animal control facility or animal shelter.”

– Dogs have turned humanity into slaves.

– A new report in USA Today says that, “Since Seresto flea and tick collars were introduced in 2012, the EPA has received incident reports of at least 1,698 related pet deaths. Overall, through June 2020, the agency has received more than 75,000 incident reports related to the collars…”

– A growing number of academics are trying to keep people segregated by color on the proverbial bus and throw animals under it. We shouldn’t confuse racist tropes and cruel policies with the cause of animal protection (or human dignity).

The number of communities placing over 95% and as high as 99% of the animals is increasing:

– Louisa County, VA, reported a 96% placement rate for dogs, 95% for cats, and 100% for bunnies and other small animals.

– Colonial Heights, VA, reported a 97% placement rate for dogs, 96% for cats, and almost all of the bunnies and other small animals.

– Appomattox County, VA,  reported a 98% placement rate for dogs and 93% for cats.

These shelters and the data nationally prove that animals are NOT dying in pounds because there are too many or too few homes or people don’t want the animals. They are dying because people in those pounds are killing them. Replace those people, implement the No Kill Equation, and we can be a No Kill nation today.

And finally, Newsweek has a recurring feature they call “Fact Check” in which they evaluate various claims circulating on social media, ostensibly to determine whether those claims are true. The magazine recently evaluated the claim that PETA kills thousands of animals every year. There is no denying that PETA has killed over 40,000 animals. Those records come from PETA itself which it is required to report to the Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. Not surprisingly, Newsweek determined that PETA has in fact killed “tens of thousands of animals.” Unfortunately, the person who they assigned to evaluate it was not completely up to the task. A recent college graduate — who describes herself as still “finding my voice” — the author excused that killing — labeling it as “Mostly True” instead of just “True” — because she bought into one of PETA’s two big lies as to why they kill so many.
