Thread: Do you think this would be a good place for us ?

  1. #1

    Do you think this would be a good place for us ?

    Hi everyone...

    I am one of a group of quite a few animal lovers/rescuers/welfare&rights advocates and transporters...

    we are all active in rescue, transport, foster and in issues involving furbabies rights and welfare....and their health, happiness and care....

    we are a diverse group, some concentrate on transport, some on holistic alternative treatments for our furbabies, some on fostercare, but we all share an incredible love for these beloved creatures of God , that deserve so much more than they often get......
    we feel we owe it to them, for the miracles that they are, and their unconditional devotion of us....

    is this site open to discussing issues like breeding, cat declawing, exotics kept in captivity , etc ?

    are you open to seeing transport and rescue needs ???

    we are looking for a new place to call home...

    what are your feelings ??

    This is definitely a great place to brag about the furkids!

    There is another group that concentrates heavily on the transport/rescue side of it too and it is www.acmepettransport.com . Both sites are excellent and are not tied totally to animals. Both are there as support as well for pets, other family, political...etc..

    hey you two...

    oh how very refreshing !!

    just your sigs alone are so welcoming !!!!

    we are leaving the site we have been frequently because they dont let us talk about the issues of NOT BREEDING , BUYING OR SELLING ...but ADOPTING !! because of the horrific pet overpopulation..and other important animal welfare issues..
    because they fear so much a heated debate....

    and thanks for that other link....mugsey...I will sure check it out....

    You are certainly welcome here. There are people here willing to discuss all sorts of issues, you will find that it is a wide-ranging group, but pretty unified on some things - declawing being bad, adoption being good, and what we all DO have in common is the love we have for pets - ours and others. There are individual forums set up for DOg Rescue, for example, where transport requests often go, for Cat Health, peruse a bit, okay?

    My current pet, by the way, is Miss Hoppy - she's the little brown bunny you see as my avatar.

    Please tell us about yourself!!

    My husband and I have 8 rescue dogs and are heavily involved in transport (we drive and I coordinate) and getting animals out of shelters and into rescue. Over the last 5 years, we have probably saved about 1000 animals from being killed. I work with many rescues all over the Midwest and East Coast. I am with you on the de-clawing thing and spay/neuter has GOT to be taught. I am also deadset against docking and cropping of tails and ears. So, there you have it...I'm a fruitloop when it comes to this!

    I cannot tell you how wonderful this is to hear ppl voicing their opinions on issues of breeding, cat declawing and docking etc...
    as the site that my friends and I have been on, censors the posts about these issue so much, because they dont want a HEATED discussion..

    I will definately tell my friends about this place....!!!!!!

    Thanks for the great signature Kay!

    Actually, pictures are a pre-requisite!! Only kidding, but we'd LOVE to see pictures of all your furkids.

    I'm owned by 3 furkids and one bald dude (a hairless cat named MooShoo). Moo is my soulmate. All are rescues. 2 from bad breeders I've been in rescue for about 10 years but am currently taking a break from it.

    *jumping up and down* Oh, goody goody goody!!! A new member!!!
