Even worse - puppies and kittens available for free are often  snatched
up as training bait  by dog fighters, or to feed large snakes.   Our local
paper passed a requirement years ago that any ad's had to list a  minimum
price of $10.00 each on pets.
 
Makes it pretty obvious that this legislation is about eliminating  pets,
NOT protecting them!

"Why has Lloyd Levine  allowed these changes?  What happened to Ed Boks who 
claims to be the  author? Why are the supporters of  AB 1634 allowing this? " 

Think  about it a little: 

Pups and  kittens given out for FREE at the  local supermarket and the 
laundrymat increases  "adoption" rates and  keeps impound numbers low. 

The animals already at  the shelter  get to go on those wonderful BIG 
adoption 
events at the local parks   and are given out for nearly free, though 
altered, 
but at a minimal cost.  That  increases adoptions for the shelter animals, 
while the 8 week  olds are handed  out freely without ever having to set foot 
in a  
shelter. (Not while they're  small and cute, anyway). 

This is  No-Kill, and Good for the numbers,  right? 

In the meantime, all  the animals given out for free, get to  reproduce at 
the 
hands of  irresponsible owners, and end up on the street when  the owners can 
 
no longer keep them and impounds need to be kept at a minimum, so  no  chance 
for them to be accepted. 

All the dogs who are given out  for  ridiculously low and "affordable" prices 
at the local parks end  up in back yards  with no shade, no fence to keep the 
dogs in, no  appropriate shelter, locked in a  cage for months and months for 
the  rest of their lives (since there's no law  against keeping dogs in a 
cage  
for the rest of their lives), and full of  parasites and lousy  corn-based 
food. 

A good number of those wonderful  dogs and cats  who are adopted out at those 
huge adoption events end up in  people's  apartment houses and as gifts for 
the 
girlfriend. Then surprise,  people  aren't allowed to keep them or someone's 
got an allergy.  

But, at least  they're altered and vaccinated, they're low cost,  and the 
shelters are pushing  adoptions, no matter where the animals  end up and no 
matter 
the cost, so grab  'em while you can!  

Yes, Of course it's insane. 

This is "NO-KILL"  TO THE  LETTER. Surprised? 

It's all about the numbers,   darlin'.
