  1. People have thank the national organizations for all the federal and state laws that protect animals. They also have to thank them for coming into each state when asked and helping out in animal abuse and neglect cases and running national programs that help all animals. These groups also run many local sanctuaries that assist local shelters and rescues.


  2. The ASPCA does great work, but the commercials are just about impossible for me to watch. I’m already doing whatever I can to help, including rescuing and fostering many dogs in the last 15 years. Watching tv is a way for me to get away from a sometimes harsh reality. I would much rather see a positive spin on good work than just be exposed to more misery that I already know about.


    • Phil, I’m sympatico. I mute it and close my eyes for the duration. I also am ‘visual’, images stay with me, and I’m well aware of animal neglect and cruelty myself (having adopted a few) and don’t need to see it. But for others not awakened, I suppose the sledgehammer approach is appropriate. Re shelters, I support only NO KILL shelters, of which the ASPCA is not one. With local private shelters you need to ask before surrendering an animal. Several years ago I had a 2 month old kitten, unsure as to whether to keep her. I called a local shelter here in Philadelphia and learned that if I took her to them and she was not adopted in TWO WEEKS, they’d euthanize her even if I wanted her back! They said she was ‘their property’, once surrendered and they’d go ahead with euthanasia after 2 weeks regardless of the fact that I’d agree to give her a home, she was a healthy 2 month old kitten.
