New York City Shelters Atrocious. Cash Flushed ASPCA sits a Few Blocks from Atrocious High Kill Shelter

People are up in arms over it, and should be. The ASPCA does I don't know what, actually, except rake in millions by sending out poignant fundraising letters. Just like the HSUS. And just like the HSUS, their CEO and many managers rake in huge salaries. Meanwhile, a public animal control shelter nearby kills healthy animals by the dead animal bucket load, claims a budget shortfall and they're all doing shit at their jobs. None of them are working for the animals proactively, by going out and preventing unwanted animals to begin with. Get off your fucking butts, New Yorkers, and think progressively. Think like Poppa Inc. thinks. Prevent these unwanted animals from ever being born in the first place, to suffer so and die.

And ASPCA, shame on you for your greed and uselessness.

One of the e-mail forwards is below:

Many of you are having trouble getting through

to the ASPCA. Use this number or email.

Ed will get the message.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

ASPCA I ask you to close the

NYCACC budget gap now or get out of NYC!



How is it possible that in the richest city in the world, the richest Humane Society in the world (ASPCA) can take in an INCREDIBLE $127,871,245* in one year and not bail out the ACC????

How is it possible that the ASPCA – headquartered mere blocks from the largest kill shelter east of the Rockies – where the atrocities exposed in these videos exist daily – can not come up with the mere $1.5 million needed to close the budget gap!

BLOCKS FROM the ASPCA THIS GOES ON DAILY AT ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL.

The ASPCA spends $19 million and some on fund raising each year, while spending $72 million or so on programs, whatever those are. I will try to find out if they have any useful programs that directly help animals. Of course, ultimate blame lies with idiots who get pets and don't take care of them, including getting them fixed.

Here is one pathetic statistic off their website:

"ASPCA Onyx and Breezy Shefts Adoption Center
Thousands of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are adopted out each year from the ASPCA’s Onyx and Breezy Shefts Adoption Center, named in memory of two Labrador retrievers owned by Mark and Wanda Shefts. One of the hallmarks of our New York City headquarters, the 12,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art adoption center was renovated and expanded in 2006. It is now capable of housing more than 300 cats and dogs in accommodations designed for their “creature comfort.” Through the ASPCA’s adoption services, 3,267 dogs and cats found new homes in 2008, a 20-percent increase over 2007"

By contrast, last year, OR Humane adopted out 10,000 dogs and cats. By contrast, they have 300 dogs and cats, I have 46 here. Keni, Poppa's president, generally has between 60 and 75, about 3/4 of which are fosters and constantly changing as she adopts them out through two different adoption groups she works with. That's one person, with no income but part time landscaping, mind you. And those cats are in pristine conditions, no whiff of a smell in her house.

I am sick of incompetence and wasteful uses of money by greedy lazy people without any larger vision.

The news report states its the unfunded rescues finding the animals on death row homes.
