I salute the K9 forces that were vital to the 9/11 rescue teams. These dogs were predestined, as puppies, to be trained in order to save and help humans. The 300 Search and Rescue Dogs of America are true rescue heroes.

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: http://www.care2.com/news/member/229345849?sort=submitted

 

Thanks,
