For the Love of Dogs

I met Joyce Fay at a clinic I gave in Hobbs, New Mexico, a very long time ago. She brought her dogs, Bro and Tracy. They were introduced to sheep for the first time and they did really well. It was an unforgettable experience. Even though they would have enjoyed a career as herding dogs, they became the main subjects of a beautiful book Joyce wrote titled, The Adventures of Bro and Tracy:

Through the exceptional qualities of her dogs, Joyce was inspired to help others. Today, Joyce — who is a world-class photographer — uses her time and talent to help rescue animals. She takes beautiful pictures of rescue animals at different shelters throughout New Mexico:

Think of ways you can contribute your time and talent to help support rescue groups and your local animal shelters. Be informed, but do not be deceived into donating money to groups such as the HSUS (Humane Society of United States). On the surface, they appear to fund animal shelters helping animals — when in fact they are animal rights fanatics. Instead of helping animals they use your donated money to finance anti-pet legislation taking away your rights to own animals of any kind. To keep on top of what is happening nationally and in your own state:

In the meantime, don’t forget the genuine groups that are in need of your support:

STAAR (Second-Time-Around Aussie Rescue)

ARPH (Aussie Rescue & Placement Helpline)

Tail Docking and Animal Rights

Have the bans on tail docking been instituted for the wellbeing of dogs including the Australian Shepherd? Or is it part of the political movement that funds mandatory spay/neuter bills such as AB 1634 (http://www.petpac.net/) in the California State Senate, and other proposed laws that take away your rights to own and enjoy animals.

If you are under the belief that ‘Animal Rights’ is about the welfare of animals, you need to wake up and smell the skunk. “Animal Rights” is not about “Animal Welfare.” Before you donate another penny to any organization with hidden agendas to subsidize legislation restricting your rights of responsible ownership visit this webpage: http://www.freewebs.com/animalrightsandyou/
