New status for animals within the legal system

Posted on 26 December, 2010 at 13:51 Comments comments (103)


DAVID FAVRE* (Prof. of Law, Michigan State Univ.)
Conclusion (of article)
As developed in this Article, the proposition that animals can possess legal
rights is already supported by the reality of events within our legal
system. Animals already have a modest variety of legal rights within the
categories of weak (red), strong (blue), and preferred (green) rights. To
make a more coherent package of all the animal-related public policy issues,
it will be useful to acknowledge the existence of a fourth category of
property, living property. Once this new category is separated out from
other property, a focused scholarly consideration of the issues will result
in a new list of legal rights for at least some of these animals. This
Article has suggested both what some of the rights might be and how
traditional rules of property law might be modified to accommodate the
presence of this new category.

At this point in history, the non-human animals of our Earth are not our
brothers, nor our equals, but like our children.151 They have interests of
their own that deserve to be nurtured and protected from human harm, both in
the consideration of ethical acts and the laws that we humans implement on
their behalf.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Christmas Day here in Onslow NC and we are expecting SNOW this afternoon!!!!  I guess the beach walk will have to wait until the New Year. I heard that the meeting that was canceled last November is to occur Jan. 18th.  I will be sending out the invitations as soon as Kim Alboum sends one to me.  I don't think they had anticipated the response that they received in November and that was one of the reasons for canceling it.  Lets show them that our enthusiasm is just as great even though it is freezing.

Merry Christmas

Hi everyone!   It's a wonderful time of year, enjoying family and friends, decorating, baking, buying presents.  I really haven't been doing much of the above.  As our country continues to remove Christ from Christmas it has only driven me deeper into what the season is really about.  If you are not celebrating Christmas, what are you doing.  Getting stressed? Spending money you do not have?  Being pushed into supporting the festival, the holiday or whatever.  The puppy mills and warehouses are churning out those adorable puppies that are going to end up in the shelter because people are not aware of the expense and care that they require. Please don't buy puppies for Christmas......foster through all the rescues that are trying to provide homes for abandoned and death row dogs.  Donate to help these folks who spend their own money trying to make a difference. Merry Christmas!!

having an animal entails.  Who is going to suffer here!!

Another week, another 27 dogs euthanized

Posted on 8 November, 2010 at 17:52 Comments comments (94)
Last Friday morning 27 dogs were euthanized. Serena, Chico, Larry,and Bob among them. So many dogs are brought into the shelter every week. No one comes looking for them?  Does anyone care what happens to the pup that one time you welcomed into your home?  You could make it easier if you must re-home your pet.  Contact a rescue group, giving them plenty of time to try and help you. Saying the dog has to be gone now is a no win situation........well maybe for you if you don't care what your pet's outcome will be.  I guess you feel that you are entitled to dump your dog on the street to get infested with fleas, hit by a car or get parvo and die before anyone can even rescue them.  Wouldn't it be nice if you could spend the effort to contact a rescue or cross post out for help.  If you are dead set on talking your pet to the shelter please drop off your vet records, this will help the person who tries to rescue them.  If they are spayed or neutered it will be another big plus. Or if you have given them heart worm prevention. The biggest plus being if your pet runs out of time at the shelter to contact you so you would be able to get them before the pet is put down.  There is only so much room in the shelter folks and I guess there are more stupid, foolish, self-centered people out there than we care to acknowledge.
     What is truly amazing is the generous people who spend their lives trying to help these abandoned pets.  Spending their lives and hard earned money trying to help the ones that they can.  It costs them hundreds of dollars to get them re-vacinated (no vet records) and spayed or neutered before trying to find a new home. If they test heart-worm positive, thats another $800.00.  If you would like to support their efforts please go to our donate page.
