Is it true?
Just had this sent to me. The person who sent it always checks everything out at urban legends.
This from Walt Hutchens........and really, everyone needs to read this............
"Just a few Americans believe in animal rights. Yet every day animal rights organizations get laws passed laws making it harder to own and breed pets. They can do this because they have big money.
"Their money comes from millions of animal lovers who believe that the check they send to HSUS, PETA, or the ASPCA actually helps animals. It does NOT. Nearly every penny donated is used
to promote, pass, and enforce laws to make animal ownership harder.
"Think about it: Have you ever heard of a new law that made pet ownership or breeding easier, safer, less expensive, happier, or more likely to succeed? Everything goes the other way, so animals and people, suffer. "That's what the animal rightists want: they don't love animals, they hate people. And they are using our animals to punish us.
"To stop the bad laws, we have to stop the money. Then the ARs will go back to being what they really are -- a few unhappy and way-out-there fruitcakes, with ideas that almost nobody else believes. "An estimated 20,000 Americans already know the truth, and are helping to spread the word to NEVER GIVE MONEY TO ANIMAL RIGHTISTS. We need ONE MILLION people spreading the word.
"To reach a million American pet lovers each of us in the 20,000 must get 50 others to help pass along this simple message: 'Friends don't let friends give to HSUS, PETA, or the ASPCA.'
"When the money stops, the AR's stop. And people who actually love animals can stop worrying that the next bad law -- or the next -- will take away their pets or make their favorite breeder move away or quit.
"You can help. GOT 50?"
I hope this isn't negative!
