When to Euthanize — YesBiscuit Blog
In reading at the link above how making the decision to euthanize beloved animals is often the most difficult decision a loving animal owner will ever have to make, this is why it’s so disturbing that more and more for-profit animal “rescues”/”shelters” that are primarily, or entirely donation-fueled (that’s why they so disingenously pander to the naive, gullible, foolish people on social media with their OFTEN fictional-fantasy, lying stories of their “heroics” because if the public stopped sending them free money, their animal dealerships would fold) kill MANY healthy animals that are supposed to be safe-in-rescue just because:
1. They can’t sell/adopt the animal out for enough money to make it worth their time and money to warrent letting the animal live peacefully in rescue/sanctuary,
2. The rescued animal won’t sell quickly enough so that they can make room for more animals they can beg for “emergency donations” to ‘rescue’;
3. The animal may have mild NON-life threatening physical and/or behavioral issues that will hinder adopting them out with, or without a fee.
The current world of social media “retail rescue” functions off of the high volume, high turnover of animals going in and out of the “rescue-kill shelters”, and “crisis rescuing” which bring in the most money in donations from the naive, easily manipulated, donating public.
Drama-junkie, entertainment-addicted faux animal lovers in the rescue world tune-in to online social media “rescue” to be entertained, and an “emergency rescue” is orchastrated by the master manipulators at primarily, or entirely donation-fueled and funded “rescues” to play on the social-media-rescue-following publics heartstrings, and loosen their purse strings again, and again, and again like the mundane, daily, and ordinary tasks of everyday rescuing and daily care of animals never can.
The problem with this model of “rescuing” is that there MUST be crisis and a sense of immediacy of “we NEED YOUR MONEY NOW so we can rescue these poor animals” in order for the FREE donation money to keep flowing in to the for-profit retail rescues coffers.
In fact, this accounts for a huge portion of their income stream and monthly nut.
However, what’s a retail rescue to do with the reality of them accumulating more, and more, and more animals that they can’t sell quickly, or can’t sell at all, can’t find foster homes for to get the animals off their feed and maintenance bills that designated donations are raised to cover, can’t get rid of animals that don’t want to die, but badly want to live?
You kill healthy animals, and then convince the foolish, entertainment-addicted public that you had “no other choice” because the animal “had issues”, all while NOT SHOWING VET REPORTS AND EUTHANASIA REPORTS that show WHY and HOW the animal was euthanized/KILLED/EXECUTED.
It’s an interesting and tragic phenomenon when so many in the public are so quick to follow blindly along when a donation-fueled “rescue” kills animals “they say” ‘needed to die’ in a supposed mercy-killing, but when asked for documentation that illustrates the WHY’S and HOW’S of the killing, they:
*refuse to answer,
*or they are evasive in their answers,
*or they are aggressive and combative in their answers,
*or they sic their thug keyboard-bully followers on anyone that dares to care enough about animals to ask questions
of WHY animals that had thousands of dollars sent in by generous people in the public to rescue them end up being DEAD by:
*or disappeared into the black hole of “de-valued animals” that exhausted their “donation-value” have a way of doing.
The trend of people going along with the killings of rescued animals that had donation-money sent in through various unregulated, unaccountable means of payment appears to be hitting it’s peak as more people become suspicious of “rescue-kill shelters” who beg and plead for donation money as new “crisis rescues” appear constantly……….
…..but there are still people that follow the for-profit retail rescues for the entertainment-value that think anything the “rescue sez” is just dandy, which effectively makes the often phony ‘rescues’ asshole enabler followers JUST AS RESPONSIBLE for the KILLING of animals that are supposed to be “rescued and safe”.
These shallow, stupid supporters may have just as well killed the innocent animals themselves, with the poisoned syringe and needle in their grubby hands, or a smoking gun and blood explosions as yet another healthy animal that wants to live, dies instead.
For those idiotic, heartless, cruel people that go along with the de-valuing of the lives of animals just like your favorite rescues tell you you should:
*you are traitors and betrayors,
*and your shit attitudes in the de-valuing of lives just because you’re too drama-addicted and stupid to realize that YOU, just like the so-called ‘rescued animals’, are props, and pawns, and cogs in a wheel that are being USED to power the enabling of a for-profit animal dealership posing as a “rescue” to buy, sell, barter, trade, and KILL animals when their usefulness is OVER.
YOUR willfully clueless behavior is not going un-noticed by those who are determined to put a stop to the wholesale killing of animals by the money-grubbing serial killers of animals.
Innocent, gentle animals are supposed to be rescued with thousands of dollars of donation money sent in for that purpose.
Instead, MANY are being callously and cruelly killed after their value in bringing in FREE MONEY for the narcissists and sociopaths in social media crisis-rescuing is over.
Crisis-rescue-junkies — keep up your mindless, moronic, junkie-behavior and it will be too late to disassociate yourself from your favorite scammy donation-fueled “rescue-kill shelter” that kills animals and that will be exposed, it’s just a matter of time.
They wouldn’t get away with their despicable killing behavior if YOU weren’t enabling them by being:
*a dumb groupie and cheerleader,
*and a keyboard-bully attacking people that ask reasonable questions,
for the primary reasons that YOU want to be entertained (to relieve the boredom of your purposeless life?)
*you live vicariously through other people and their manic, mentally unbalanced behavior
and you for some sad reason also pathetically have the NEED to belong.
You can still redeem yourself and help stop the killing of innocent animals that are supposed to be “safe in rescue”…..really, you can.
All you have to do is:
*admit that talented scam – artists operating on social media managed to fool you with their puffery, misrepresentation, embellishments, and blatant, pathological LYING,
*think for yourself,
*don’t be afraid of not belonging to a killing team, a murderous village, a heathen tribe,
*and care enough about animals to ask questions,
*and if/WHEN logical, concise answers are NOT forth-coming,
*you will file complaints with organizations and agencies that will get answers one way or another in order to,
*protect “rescued animals” from being USED, BETRAYED, and KILLED by those running con-games posing as rescuers in DONATION-FUELED rescue.
It IS that easy to become a hero for animals,
to be their voice,
EXPOSING those that will never stop exploiting them,
and thousands of YOU’s,
come together in harmony and love
to STOP the greedy, self-absorbed conscience-LESS traitors,
from hurting and killing animals,
with no questions asked and answered,
UNLESS and UNTIL they are persistently demanded.
Oh, and by-the-way, those people that are on the Board of Directors or are Officers in these “rescues” that wantonly and callously KILL healthy, innocent animals that are supposed to be “safe in rescue” that were “rescued” USING DONATED FUNDS?
You may think you can plead ignorance and innocence regarding the misuse of donated funds AND the KILLING of healthy, innocent rescued animals.
However, YOU are supposed to be the “checks and balances” that help keep people HONEST and doing the unselfish work of NONPROFIT animal rescue.
Unfortunately, narcissistic, manipulative, sociopathic people are OFTEN only “into” animal rescue for the free money flowing in, the free animals they attain USING other peoples money that they can sell, and the accolades whereby animals in need are mere props, pawns, and a vehicle to celebrity and attention.
When you do suspect shady and/or illegal activities, or are suspicious of WHY so many animals are being killed, or are simply disappearing at an alarming rate and your questions go unanswered, or if you are the Treasurer in charge of the finances for the nonprofit and you’re unable to balance the books and/or are having difficulty figuring out what donation money is being spent on, IF you possess a conscience, or IF you have a sense of self-preservation, you would be well advised to distance yourself from questionable dealings and a rescue that is not as it appears.
Taking it an ethical step farther, whistle blowing may be in order to protect animals, and protect yourself, for the simple reason that when the domino’s begin to topple, even “if” you are an honest, ethical person, YOU will be painted with the same broad, tainted brush as the crooks and criminals because you didn’t say a word about the bad things that were happening at the “rescue” you were involved with.
AKA – They kill and disappear innocent animals, don’t they?
Everyone watches the vile pattern of behavior unfold, as many primarily, or entirely donation-funded animal rescues-kill shelters, that are no better than generational welfare (FREE money) recipients workin’-it in the unregulated free-for-all that is the social media arena, attain more, and more, and more animals using donation money, and then refuse to tell the public WHERE IN THE HELL ARE ALL OF THE ANIMALS DISAPPEARING TOO and/or WHY ARE YOU KILLING RESCUED ANIMALS WITHOUT SHOWING VET REPORTS DETAILING WHY THE ANIMAL MUST BE PUT-DOWN?!?!?
It begs the question “why isn’t the concerned animal loving public doing more to get answers regarding the WHEREABOUTS of animals that are supposed to be safe at rescues that attained the animals through the USE of donation money?”
Here’s why, and if you don’t believe this is a primary reason people don’t pursue answers, go ahead and ask questions of your favorite donation-funded rescue that attains a lot of animals whose whereabouts are unknown mere days or months from when they were rescued:
ALL of the donation-funded “rescues” that tend to attain a lot of animals, but then won’t account for EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM after being attained with donated funds, have “enablers” and cult-members ready and willing to go on the attack on behalf of their gurus at the rescue – kill shelter they are ignorant followers of.
These nasty, vicious, chump followers can be counted on to go on the attack on people that ask simple, concise, straight-forward questions that honest rescues using donated funds to rescue and take care of animals will happily answer.
It’s quite easy to separate the real and good donation-funded animal rescues from the shady ones, that often are lowlife animal dealers posing as “rescues”;
all one needs to do is ask straight-forward, targeted questions and see if they readily answer, or instead they go into evasion-mode, they sic their brainwashed, idiotic, but vicious like a rabid dog cult followers on you, you have bogus false reports filed against you by “anonymous complainants, and other equally nasty things occur suddenly.
These sub-humans can be counted on to bully, threaten, belittle, defame, threaten, stalk, and even call in “false reports” (which is ILLEGAL by the way) to taxpayer-funded government agencies.
This is a quote from an expert on stalking:
“Organized Gang Stalking is a form of terrorism used against an individual in a malicious attempt to reduce the quality of a person’s life so they will:
have a nervous break-down, become incarcerated, institutionalized, experience constant mental, emotional, or physical pain, become homeless, and/or commit suicide.
This is done using well-orchestrated accusations, lies, rumors, bogus investigations, setups, framings, intimidation, overt or covert threats, vandalism, thefts, sabotage, torture, humiliation, emotional terror and general harassment.
It is a “ganging up” by members of the community, and via the Internet, who follow an organizer and participate in a systematic “terrorizing” of an individual.
Organized gang stalking can involve a group in the hundreds to thousands harassing a single person or family 24/7. The victim is stalked en masse by car, foot, bike, air and Internet in order alienate and isolate the victim.
The goals of gang stalking are to:
Provoke the victim to assault someone and get arrested;
Make the victim seem delusional/ mentally ill (see “gaslighting”);
Make the victim so depressed they become suicidal.
Tactics used are relentless color harassment, noise harassment, air harassment, hand signals, electronic monitoring inside the home and car (complete invasion of privacy;
redirecting of phone calls, emails, postal mail),
via social media, workplace mobbing, “directed conversation” and innuendo,
erratic/ aggressive driving, bizarre/rude/bullying behavior in the community, and much more.
This is extreme criminal activity that is becoming more common and needs to be outlawed.”
As more and more animal lovers donate and support rescues from afar (they follow the rescue via social media because they live hundreds, if not thousands of miles away – and if not for social media they do their carnie-fund-raising on to finagle money out of naive “marks”, MOST of these “retail rescues” wouldn’t even be in business – whereby they are not at the rescue facility to keep track of where the rescued animals are, more and more of these people are asking targeted questions regarding the “rescued animals” whereabouts and wellbeing.
Additionally, people are asking for documentation such as:
*vet reports that fundraisers were run to pay for veterinary services for the rescued animals,
*vet reports and euthanasia reports describing WHY an animal HAD to be put down,
*itemized vet bills for each particular horse the “rescue says” their vet is looking at, examining, and evaluating,
*number of animals rescued in the past year and current, date – stamped photos of the animals showing their condition,
*numbers of adoptions in the previous month featuring current photos of the animals in their new home,
*receipts for vet care,
*feed for animals,
*body disposal bills.
Very telling is when a primarily, or entirely donation-funded (as opposed to a primarily, or entirely self-funded animal rescue whose operators pay for everything, or most everything pertaining to the rescue with their own money) animal rescue becomes evasive, refuses to answer simple questions and provide documentation they should have.
A huge red flag is when the rescues true believer cult followers begin assaulting people asking questions by bullying, belittling, threatening, stalking, using foul, inappropriate language, name calling, and also calling in false reports to taxpayer-funded government agencies (illegal, but this happens A LOT).
If, or when this happens, the person being assaulted should start collecting screenshots of the lack of answers to their questions posed to the rescue, and also of the assaults by thug-followers of the “rescue” ‘gang bullying”, which will be sent to various law enforcement and other government agencies such as the Attorney Generals and Secretary of States offices that are in charge of investigating nonprofit animal rescues, along with detailed written complaints.
If more animal lovers would follow-through regarding asking questions that are supposed to be rescued, and also file complaints to the appropriate government agencies regarding animals that are supposed to be “rescued and safe” uthrough the use of asked for, and received “designated donations”, there would/will be far fewer “bad apple opportunist rescues” out for personal profit and gain USING animals as “props” and “bait”, and the rescues doing real rescue that they are not profiting and gaining from would get more much needed support.
Be sure to also include the entire Board of Directors for the rescue because even if unaware of wrongdoing, they are just as culpable as the people doing the shady and/or illegal activities at the rescue.
The Board of Directors are supposed to act as “checks and balances” for the rescue, so even if they aren’t “hands on” at the rescue, they are still supposed to be aware of the operations at the rescue.
Animal lovers in the public:
Don’t be sucked in, and become addicted to the entertain, excitment, and drama that is spoon-fed to you by showboating, reality show-type animal rescues that are often operated by extreme narcissists, “puffers”, pathological liars, and even sociopaths that mostly care about themselves and not anything, or anyone else.
Real and honest animal rescue is not fireworks and drama – instead, the real, everyday rescuing and caring for rescued animals are labors of love, and is often about as exciting and entertaining as watching grass grow or paint dry.
In other words, don’t be the fool that’s born everyday and fall for what the opportunists and connivers in donation-funded rescue are trying to sell you in the form of drama and entertainment that you can live vicariously through them to rev-up the somewhat mundane daily life you lead.
True animal lovers couldn’t care less about being entertained, or living vicariously through the “actors” in donation-funded animal rescue because their primary concern and bottom-line is ALWAYS for the animals that are rescued, and also WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM AFTER THEY ARE RESCUED, so the manic antics of the “rescuers” at a reality-show-type “rescue” is mere distraction and smoke-and-mirrors designed to distract and deceive.
An FYI for those that don’t know this:
Having an animal rights agenda regarding the “use” of horses by their owners in various endeavors will NEVER fly in the “mainstream” horse world because people that actually “do” things with their personal property horses will NEVER be animal rights followers or promoters, or linked to an animal rights agenda.
In this scenario, the carriage horse industry, that already has animal welfare laws, rules, and regulations in place, is under assault by various “power players” with various agenda’s that don’t necessarily involve the welfare of the carriage horses (for instance, there is a very expensive chunk of real estate the barns/facilities the carriage horses are housed in that is smack, dab in the middle of this controversy – very curious indeed).
Combine questionable motives, that don’t necessarily include the “welfare” of the carriage horses, and bringing “the noise and numbers” (of people) that the animal rights agenda always brings to the issue that has the donation money streaming by the thousands of dollars into their coffers, and the primary issue OFTEN gets lost in the manipulations and “jockeying for position” all of the leaders and primary players bring with them.
The reason mainstream horse people, that may, or may not even know much about the carriage horse industry, won’t get involved, and certainly won’t get on-board with the people that want to ban carriage horses in NYC is because currently its the carriage horse ban, but maybe next on the Animal Rights primary players agenda, and with the MOBS they ALWAYS ramp-up, it will be BANNING what these mainstream, serious horse people “do” with their horses such as jumping, dressage, endurance riding, reining, driving, trail/pleasure riding, and many other endeavors too numerous to list
For you see, MANY animal rights followers and believers “believe” that IF people have animals, they shouldn’t “do” anything with those animals other than take care of them and that’s it.
Some AR-followers go so far as to promote all animals being wild and free, even if/when it would lead to the animals torment and deaths because of “survival of the fittest” in the wild and their inability to “live wild”.
And the mantra that is heard over and over again with many of these fools is that “the (carriage) horses aren’t turned out on pasture every day”.
Do these people really think that MOST horses in this great wide world, whether high-powered show horses, polo ponies, working ranch horses, or backyard horses that get ridden on the trails, get “turned out on pasture” everyday?
Its crap like this that mainstream horse people are rejecting because the majority of horses, especially in populated areas and/or cities, are kept in smaller corrals i.e.12′ x 12′, 12′ x 24′ (standard size at most boarding stables in populated areas) up to larger paddocks, box stalls ranging from 10′ x 10′ to 12′ x 16′, they are in under-cover “mare motels” with 12′ x 12′ “stalls” that are not walled on the sides and are “open air” and not “box stalls”, etc.
At MANY boarding stables, even in the urban and suburban areas, horse owners pay a pretty penny to rent a corral that is the standard 12′ x 24′ size, and if they want daily turnout for their horse, or turnout on the days they can’t get to the stable, on pasture or a “dry-lot” turn-out, they pay for that too.
Its because of the odd fantasyland that many of these animal rights-groupies live in that ALL owned animals have the “best-of-the-best” (when there are literally thousands of ways to take care of various species of animals) and they may be surprised to learn that MOST mainstream horse and dog owners will NEVER link up with them in any way because AR’s have a way of turning on whomever their “handlers” tell them to.
The animal rights agenda is now infiltrating the wild horse and burro movement too.
THAT will make it positively a sure thing that MOST mainstream horse people that “do” things with their horses won’t join in fighting for federally protected wild horses and burros living in their vast Herd Management Areas (HMA’s) to be primarily managed, as mandated by LAW, in those HMA’s on public/federal land in the western states.
When these horse owners domestic horses are being labeled “slave horses” and they are being portrayed as “slave owners” (since their horses are “slave horses”), NO mainstream, serious horse owners will EVER link themselves with a movement that has animal rights leanings that disrespects a whole group of animal owners, and also a whole industry of people.
Once horses, whether domestically born and raised, or former wild horses, are called “slave horses”, it doesn’t matter how owners actually keep their horses – the lap of luxury, or “living-out” – it makes no difference to animal rights extremists because all domestic, or even captive-wild horses, are “slaves”.
The beginnings of the ignorance of animal rights followers ultimately lumping everything people “do” with their animals as “slavery” begins with issues the animal loving public can get on-board with, even as they know little-to-nothing about what they are “fighting for”.
These are generally people that don’t have much, if any education, regarding these scenarios and situations with animals at their core.
However, with people becoming more and more sheep-like, and less and less willing to spend a little time RESEARCHING and STUDYING the issues before they join “the movement” (whatever it is), they hand themselves over to people that quite often have little more knowledge than they have, “the leaders” often have their own motivations and agenda that doesn’t always have animal welfare or animal rights at their core (whether good, bad, or in-between), and that is how misinformation, outright false information, and ignorance takes over.
The “leaders” in these “movements” are usually the ones with the most to gain ($$$$, accolades, being put on a pedestal, having their egos bolstered, etc).
They often write well and in a very convincing way that sways people (for a awhile anyway) to their “side”.
And as the following of people that don’t research and study the issues gets larger and larger, the reputations, “credentials”, and “resumes” of those with the following become twisted into shapes not totally related to reality, but by then, their so-called “knowledge” is epic, even if/when its not true.
Now of course, there are always the extremists on the opposing side that are just as staunch in their position, they put out just as much propaganda, misinformation/false information, and also take an abundance of information out of context to suit their dialogue and position.
But then the battle lines are drawn, the “competition” that shouldn’t be a competition, with animals usually trapped in the middle, begins, human nature takes over of “we win, you lose”, the mob/foot-soldiers engage under the direction of the leaders and go on the attack, and the ultimate losers time and time again tends to be the innocent animals that don’t have a “say” in anything, they don’t have egos, they don’t covet, and they are innocent of toxic emotions and dealings.
In order to not be “snookered” and fooled by those who write well, that often speak well, and that may know how to behave depending on their audience, QUESTIONS should always be asked of ANYONE regarding:
their position on an issue (to be posted publicly so people deciding whether to join the cause or movement understand where the leadership is coming from),
how they have come up with their position,
research and collect background information on them,
and find out what their motivations are, and if their motivation and agenda/position is in-line with yours.
In the case of the carriage horses, ALSO ask them:
why there shouldn’t be carriage horses in NYC,
are they working toward enforcement of existing laws that govern the carriage horse industry,
what is their position regarding horses being used for other endeavors besides carriage horses i.e. show jumping, endurance riding, barrel racing, dressage, pleasure, competitive, show driving, to name just a few endeavors people engage in with their horses.
what credentials do they have regarding species-specific equine husbandry, training, equine behavioral experience, etc
what is their position on commercial horse slaughter
if they are anti-commercial horse slaughter, what are they personally doing to ban commercial horse slaughter dealings in their country, their state,
and what are they doing to FORCE the enforcement of laws already in place in some states that already ban horse slaughter dealings.
As personal property, the carriage horses can be sold to whomever the owner wants to sell them to.
If the coalition is so concerned about where carriage horses go when they’re sold by their OWNERS, why doesn’t this coalition work toward legislating a ban on horse slaughter dealings like the one in place in California since November 3, 1998 that would protect not only carriage horses, it would also protect “spent” (as they call it) show horses, rental horses, racehorses, basically ALL horses?
The HUGE difference could be that maybe state of New York citizens would actually ENFORCE the law instead of letting the horse slaughter trade continue as business as usual.
The law in California has only been enforced 1 TIME in nearly 17 years of its existence, and sadly enough, many donation-funded CA horse rescues actual USE the threat of horse slaughter to wheedle donations from people to “save horses” from that fate.
If the CA horse rescues really “wanted to”, they could successfully “out” every, single kill buyer, sale yards, transporters, and anyone else associated with the horse slaughter industry in CA, right out-of-business in 1 month.
They could also probably provide information that would get some lawbreakers arrested and prosecuted too.
Why don’t they do it?
Could be that some CA horse rescues are “entwined” so-to-speak with some in the horse slaughter industry (MANY donation-funded horse rescues actually deal with kill buyers on a regular basis), and exposing those kill buyers and others may very well get those fox-in-the-henhouse horse “rescues” exposed for also dealing in horse slaughter.
A law only has “bite” when its ENFORCED.
So if “the coalitions” and New Yorkers new position is that they are really concerned regarding what is happening to carriage horses after their owners can no longer use them in their businesses, the answer is not to ban a whole industry –
No, the answer is to ENFORCE the laws already in place, legislate laws that BAN horse slaughter dealings entirely in New York state, ENFORCE those laws once passed, and then they’d be protecting ALL horses in New York from an inhumane, horrific death via commercial horse slaughter.
If these things aren’t done, this will look just like a “sham-and-scam” being run by people with their own agendas that may not have anything to do with “animal welfare”, linking up with the animal rights extremists who then manipulate ignorant, misinformed, and yes, lazy people that don’t research anything before joining-up, into “social media madness mobs” that often are animal rights people.
These MOBS do the dirty work for the leaders that have everything to gain in these scenarios.
The “noise and numbers”. that MOBS provide are good for getting politicians to “circle-the-wagons”, go into “cover-their-own-asses”-mode, and they too often knuckle-under to the “noise and numbers” whether its a sensible, reasonable move, or simply a knee-jerk reaction that emboldens the ringleaders when forming their next MOB in order to gain and profit.
Don’t be manipulated, ask questions, expect answers BEFORE joining any movement so that after the dust settles and people have declared their “victory”, you will be able to hold their “feet-to-the-fire” with their own written words that tells-the-tale of what they say they wanted, and what they said they’d “do” for the animals if they in fact “won” and were successful in their crusade.
For many of these “leaders”, and also those in the “noise and numbers” crowd, their memories are very SHORT, hardly anyone follows-up on what really happens to ALL the animals after a “rescue”, a “seizure”, or after the banning of something having to do with animals, and the animals are the forgotten ones that far too often are also the ones that suffer because people can’t be bothered to care after the “competition” is OVER.
