Pro-Life Action of Oregon is nauseated by the exponential growth of “doggie day cares” and the annual “Doggie Dash.” Portland is recognized as among the most “pet friendly” cities!
Before you peg me as an animal hater you need to know that our family is lovingly caring for our senior dog. He has reached the ripe old age of 13. Plus, we have cared for many cats over the years.
Pets Above Children
The Oregon Humane Society has the following Gandhi quote beautifully etched in stone at the entrance to its state-of-the-art animal shelter:
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”—Mahatma Gandhi
Most nations have legitimized aborting babies. That cancels out “moral progress,” in our book.
Gandhi justified vegetarianism:
“All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence.”—Mahatma Gandhi
Gandhi was not talking about pets but all animals, including cattle, pigs, chickens, and goats.
That’s nice. In fact, your editor was a vegetarian for seven years to be a part of the popular 1960’s new religion of vegetarianism.
But I’ve grown up! (Speaking of India, it was the aroma of Indian curried chicken that converted me back to eating meat.)
Dog Culture Amidst the Culture of Death
Doggie Dash May 15, 2010 — Voted Portland’s favorite pet event “by a landslide,” Doggie Dash is the best place in the Northwest to have fun with your four-legged friends and help animals in need.
Oregon Humane Society’s animal shelter boasts of “Get-Acquainted Rooms.”
How can they afford this luxury for pets while schools in Portland are being closed down or down-sized?
Donors and lots of them!
