These two blogs that work to corral the political influence of dog-owners. Both bash PETA and the so-called Humane Society of the United States, which operates no shelters and whose employees rarely touch a dog in the course of their jobs:
Blue Dog State carries the tag line, "If you count dog ownership among your civil rights, you're living in a Blue Dog State of mind."
Dog Politics is "The Political Blog For Dog Owners: Wake Up & Smell The Dog - There's A New Breed Of Voter In Town."
It's time for people who really care about shelter dogs to stop giving to HSUS and start giving money to your LOCAL shelter, your LOCAL rescue, your LOCAL humane society.
Oh- and just How much money do local shelters get from HSUS?
A big fat ZERO. Nada. Zilch. There is no "trickle down" effect from Wayne Pacelle's HSUS to your local humane society, got that?
