Humane Society of US only gives 1% of its annual budget to pet shelters”

I stumbled on this video this past weekend (I don’t even know who to give a H/T too!) and am posting it as it struck a chord with me:

The chord?  All of our dogs have been shelter or rescue dogs:

  • Gypsy the rescue Greyhound
  • Tasha the Golden Retriever from the Laconia Animal shelter
  • Ivan the Shephard / South Rhodesian Ridgeback mix from the Laconia Animal shelter (now starting in on Year 16!)
  • Tyson the American Eskimo, a rescue from a failed relationship
  • Kiah the Manchester Terrier from the Laconia Animal shelter
  • Mieka the Lab mix from the Laconia Animal shelter

If what Humane Watch is true, it is a similar case to politics – we think that supporting individual politicians is better than just giving to a political Party (Republican or Democrat).  If you give to a group, STUDY and research what they are about AND verify their results (here in Conservative NH politics, I can endorse the Granite State Patriot Liberty PAC (GSPLPAC) as well as the Republican Liberty Caucus of NH (RLCNH).

But remember, animals are neither R or D, Conservative, Libertarian, Democrat, or Socialist (or other).   Support your local shelter!

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
