Queens Crap: WTF is with the ASPCA?

Queens Crap: WTF is with the ASPCA?
Above is a link to a recent story about a dog named "Justice" who had been mistreated and shockingly, returned to the very people who mistreated him.(Story courtesy of "Queens Crap" the blog that covered the gassing of approximately 2,000 geese here in NYC just a few short months ago) 
 As with "Oreo" the dog the ASPCA seems to have dropped the ball again and it is just luck that someone knows the story and is publicizing it. If you love animals like I do you'll want to call the ASPCA and request they investigate this matter and , if warranted, rescue this dog so it can be properly  taken care of and placed in a loving home. 
I do think this story illustrates just how ineffective the ASPCA has become when it comes to protecting animals and perhaps that warrants it's own investigation. 
The ASPCA can be reached here: 1-212-876-7700

Vote to help save dogs like Oreo

As I left for PA. a few weeks ago the story broke about Oreo the dog. She had been thrown off a building, survived and was kept at the ASPCA. Physically rehabilitated , she proved too much of a challenge for the ASPCA and they determined she should be put to death. I left for PA. hoping someone would step forward to help Oreo. "Pets Alive" did but the ASPCA chose to kill Oreo anyway. 
I happen to believe animals have the right to life and Pets Alive has the same view and mission. I have to wonder about the ASPCA though. Maybe they have lost touch with what their mission is all about. And maybe they have lost touch with what animals lovers everywhere believe in. 
Pets Alive is currently vying for a $20,000 grant. You can help by voting for them every day up until Dec. 20th. 
Go here to reach their blog page. The link to vote is on there. Feel free to vote for the shelter of your choice. Either way you will be helping deserving animals like Oreo who need someone to love and believe in them.
