ALDF, ASPCA, HSUS, BEST FRIENDS: PLEASE NO MORE ADDRESS LABELS?

In the last two weeks, I’ve received from animal rescue and welfare organizations to which I’ve donated, two sets of almost identical return address labels, a pocket calendar, and two membership cards. Among other things.

Please STOP sending these things. I don’t want them, I won’t use them, and the money you’re spending to send me what amount to tchothkes isn’t going where it should: to help homeless and abused animals.

I don’t want to be sarcastic, but I know where I live; I rarely if even mail anything anyway, I don’t need a calendar because I have a phone, and in fact I can enter appointments into that phone’s calendar; and there’s no one to even show a membership card to–my beloved Pittie Popeye only reads Croat. And he says “Prestanite slati sitnice!”

So please, when things are back to normal, I’ll start donating again. But I won’t if you don’t stop wasting my money on that stuff. You can even put your newsletters online for a fraction of what you’re┬áspending to print and mail them. These things don’t help critters.

Thank you!

The History and Downfall of the Disgraced NJSPCA

This interesting and detailed piece provides much of the history of the disgraceful New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NJSPCA), a “gun club” of “wanna-be cops” who did little to help suffering, homeless and abused animals but clearly enjoyed pretending they were police.

This band of clowns was finally dissolved as a “law enforcement” organization by a NJ law, sponsored by former NJ State Senator Ray Lesniak, passed without opposition and signed by Governor Christie on his last full day in office.

HERE’s the piece itself.

And HERE’s the report from the New Jersey State Commission of Investigation titled “Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing. “
