State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners: Help Keep Local Wiregrass Spay & Neuter Clinics Open!!

Animals  (tags: AnimalWelfare, Alabama, low cost spay/neuter clinics, animaladvocates, ethics, protection )
Ginger - 1 day ago -
Alabama spay and neuter clinics could be closing. A vote on October 10th will decide whether or not to shut down the clinics. Please sign & forward to anyone from Alabama who you believe will help.


Original Message:




Hello Everybody,


Thank you to everyone who has helped me with my fight to keep Alabama's low cost spay/neuter clinics from being closed down. I posted a petition in my news that someone made to try to keep the powers-that-be from voting to shut them down. Please sign it, leave a comment & foward it. Here's a little bit of what this fight is about that I'll now copy & paste from various websites so that you can get an idea of what kind of comment to leave:


A proposed rule change by the board would prevent non-veterinarians from hiring veterinarians or veterinary technicians to operate a veterinary facility. This rule change would likely shut down the state’s non-profit spay/neuter clinics, which employ veterinarians to provide spay/neuter services. There are four spay/neuter clinics in the state, including the Wiregrass Spay and Neuter Clinic in Dothan.


All four spay/neuter clinics have, since inception, been approved, sanctioned and licensed by the Alabama State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners. A couple of years ago, the Board attacked the Huntsville and Birmingham clinics. In both cases ownership of the veterinary practice was challenged. More recently, while arguing against the spay/neuter clinic protection act (HB156), the Board attacked the quality of medical care. This argument is interesting, since each clinic is inspected and licensed by the Board, along with the veterinarians performing surgeries at each clinic. It is also noteworthy that during debate over HB156, the Board argued to severely restrict vaccinations and testing allowed at the clinics. If quality of care is truly an issue, why does the Board want to limit the ability of veterinarians at these clinics to properly care for each animal?    


The Board has also suggested that perhaps there is no overpopulation problem at all, and that the services provided by these clinics aren’t needed.


In closing, there seems to be a clear agenda against the spay/neuter clinics, supported by a campaign of false accusations, rumors, and innuendo.




Here's the link to my news:

Already, this season, Mickaboo has spent 10K caring for the many Avian species we have here, Cranes, Egrets, Hawks - you name it - they care for it! SO WE NEED HELP!

As you may know, I am volunteering in local efforts to re-build our local animal shelter, the Hi-Tor Animal Care Center, which is in desperate need of repair and is overcrowded with creatures seeking their forever home. Thanks for your support!

Millions of EU citizens care deeply about animal welfare and are sickened to see constant reports of horrific animal cruelty, and look to the EU and their MEPs to help improve animal welfare across Europe.
A London MEP raised the issue about the need for countries seeking to acquire EU membership to demonstrate certain standards of animal care, and so I want to bring to your attention please Bosnia and Herzegovina, who are seeking admission.

As you will be aware, the European Union provides the government of Bosnia and Herzegovina and with many millions of euros worth of financial aid each year. I believe the allocation for 2012 was around 107.8m.

My understanding of the provisos attached to these aid packages is that there is a requirement for the recipient country to abide by EU laws which would include the laws related to animal welfare. The Commission has stated that aligning national animal welfare legislation with EU law is a prerequisite for EU membership.

Many international animal welfare organisations cite Bosnia as the country with the most instances of horrific animal cruelty and suffering. One such issue has been reported widely this month, the plight of dogs in their shelters.

I attach this link giving details which animal activists in Bosnia say is typical throughout their country:

Not only are the conditions entirely inhumane in most if not all state shelters, but it is common knowledge amongst Bosnian animal welfare activists that shelters are used to launder money from public budgets. Population control and promotion of spaying and neutering as well as implementation of the animal welfare law is not in any shelter manager's interest because they want and need a constant flow of new dogs so they can justify the funds spent each month from the budget.

In the case of the shelter in Hresa (see above link) activists were not only prevented from taking a severely emaciated, suffering dog to veterinary care (see photograph above) but were violently threatened by the shelter manager.
A Serbian friend who wishes to remain anonymous has stated she heard money had been stolen from the Hresa shelter funds during financial pre election maneuvres.

I have access to images from the state dog shelter in Banja Luka, the second largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. These images show dogs that were killed by injections of bleach and a dog killed by other dogs. I have access to images from Prihvatiliste KS Praca, the larger of two state shelters in Sarajevo, which show horrifically starving dogs and dogs left dead in their pens amongst other dogs.

Deliberate animal abuse is rife in Bosnia: there is the famous case last year in Ilidza in central Bosnia and Herzegovina, where two men put a rocket explosive firework into a young German Shepherd's mouth and duct-taped his jaws shut, setting the rocket alight. The firework caused horrific injuries to the dog's face, but did not kill him. He wandered about for five days before being finally rescued by animal welfare volunteers The dog had to be euthanized. Nearly 200,000 people signed these petitions asking the Bosnian and Herzegovinian authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice, but nothing was done.

There is clear evidence now that people who take pleasure in harming animals are also a potential danger to other people, especially children. All abuses get discovered and publicised widely in the media and internet, and millions of people do not want to visit or trade with countries who treat animals like this as they are simply not trusted, so the authorities should have incentive to take action.

I would urge you please to raise these issues with the European Parliament's Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of animals ( I understand that each MEP is invited to participate in these regular animal welfare meetings. It is imperative that the European Parliament discusses the matter of animal welfare with their Bosnia and Herzegovina counterparts and urgently demands a full investigation into the state shelters and animal abuse cases.

The European Parliament states that "The EU has among the world's highest standards of animal welfare". The Eurogroup for Animal Welfare is strongly urging the European Commission to adopt adequate measures to ensure that all pet animals are properly treated to protect their health and welfare. If it is Bosnia and Herzegovina's wish to join the EU it would seem that until their government takes crimes against defenseless, sentient animals seriously they will not be a fit country to be accepted into the EU.

Many thanks for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.
