As We Say, Not As We Do
While anti-hunting and animal rights groups were pushing the infamous puppy mill bill through in Texas, looks like it was a case of "do as I say, and not as I do" with one Austin, Texas group. A report by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) reveals how the group actually treats dogs in their care. During the first three months of 2011, the Austin ASPCA group euthanized 106 dogs, had six dogs die that were in their care, and actually lost three dogs. Maybe Texas will follow the lead of other states and place the ASPCA and HSUS kennels under the rules of the same puppy mill bills that those groups worked to pass. Can you say huge fines?
