7 Things You Didn’t Know About The Humane Society

7 Things You Didn’t Know About H$U$

(The Humane Society of the United States)

1. H$U$ does not operate or have direct control over any animal shelter. Buried deep within H$U$’s website is a disclaimer noting that the group “is not affiliated with, nor is it a parent organization for, local humane societies, animal shelters, or animal care and control agencies.” When H$U$ merged with the Fund for Animals they acquired some animal sanctuaries but those are usually full when someone tries to send an animal there – unless the animal comes with a big check.

2. Since its inception, H$U$ has tried to limit the choices of American consumers, opposing dog breeding, conventional livestock and poultry farming, rodeos, circuses, horse racing, marine aquariums, fur trapping and medical research.

3. H$U$ raises enough money to help finance animal shelters in every single state, with money to spare, yet it doesn’t operate a single one anywhere. Instead, H$U$ spends millions on programs that seek to economically cripple meat and dairy producers; eliminate the use of animals in biomedical research labs; phase out pet breeding, zoos, and circus animal acts; and demonize hunters as crazed lunatics. H$U$ spends $2 million each year on travel expenses alone, just keeping its multi-national agenda going.

4. While most local animal shelters are under-funded and unsung, H$U$ has accumulated $113 million in assets and built a recognizable brand by capitalizing on the confusion its very name provokes.

5. The current president of H$U$, Wayne Pacelle, is a former officer of PeTA.

6. H$U$ is currently under investigation by the Attorney General of Louisiana in regards to the disposition of Katrina funds. H$U$ has been under investigation by the FBI for their links to domestic terrorist organizations such as the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). One of their current officers, John P. Goodwin is a former member of ALF and a convicted felon for acts of terrorism related to animals.

7. H$U$ consistently jumps on the bandwagon of any animal issue to raise funds even if they are NOT directly involved. Most recently they used the Michael Vick case as a major fund raiser, even though H$U$ had nothing to do with the investigation or care of the Vick dogs.

Faith

This is actually an e-mail my kinda-sorta mom-in-law sent me I don’t know if it is real’ but on the chance that it is….I had to share it. 🙂

This two-leg dog is called FAITH, born on the eve of Christmas in 2002. He could only crawl on the ground when he was born. Even his mother looked down on his deficiency and tried to kill him.

The original owner did not think Faith stood a chance of gr owing up. The Stronger fellow family decided to adopt it to give it a chance by teaching him to ‘walk’. The name ‘Faith’ was given to him to bless him with hope and determination.

It only took 6 months for miracle to happen.
They first put Faith on a roller board to let him experience the sensation of movement. Then they started to tempt him to stand up and leap by using a spoon of peanut butter jelly as bait in front of him. The other dog at home also forced Faith to move. Faith slowly picked up the trick of balancing himself on two legs and leaping along. With more training in the snow, Faith was finally able to walk like a human being.

Faith enjoys running around, and is the centre of attention wherever he goes. He becomes well known around the world, and has appeared in various TV shows and news programmes. His book ‘With a little Faith’ was published. He was also once considered to act in a Harry Potter‘s ‘The challenge of the Grail’.

Faith’s owner Jude Stringfellow has resigned from her teaching career so she can dedicate to taking Faith on a round-the-world entourage, to showcase to the world that one can have a perfect soul without a perfect body.


Life often plays some cards contrary to what we wish for. But we can change our perspective to lift our life and shine.
Let’s learn to be THANKFUL for every day and live life to the fullest!

Pet friendly nude beach

What could possibly be better than strolling down the beach with fragrant salt air perfuming the breeze as it blows through your hair. The waves are crashing all around and gulls overhead are contentedly squawking, bellies full with human picnic leftovers. The sun heats up your skin ‘all over’ as it beats down.

By your side is is your Fido loping along happily barking to the world.
Of course little known to you he is trying to tell you to please shave your back if you feel the need to reveal all of God’s glory to everyone.

Pet Friendly Nude Beaches | Pictures of Nude Sunbathers with Dogs

Clothing optional dog beaches – There aren’t many clothing optional (nude beaches) in California, but on the plus side, those that are often greet pets, too.

It’s hard enough to find nude beaches in California, but to find pet friendly beaches that are also clothing optional really limits the score.

The good news is that most clothing option beaches are also pet friendly, and are especially enjoyed by men who like to be out, enjoying the sunshine with their dogs. Do you think that a dog cares if you have clothes on? Nope. A dog could care less. But what dogs like are dog beaches where they can romp and jump into the water, play ball, and have the freedom to roam free of leashes and restrictions. Second nature to a dog, the same desires are also live within men and women.

Pictured above is a Central Coast (unofficial nude beach) in San Luis Obispo. Others include San Mateo County and some of Santa Cruz County’s northern beaches.
