You should be allowed to have whatever convictions you want religiously and ethically, as long as you provide good animal care and make a positive difference on the rescue world. I really hope she wasn't saying what it sounded like she was saying, or I might get offended.
I'm sure if Lynx wants to elaborate on her statement, she won't be at a loss for words to do so.
But she wrote, "there are... many strange people out there (think 'aliens')."
Maybe she meant you are strange.
Maybe she meant there are aliens impersonating real people out there.
Maybe she meant there are crazy aliens planning to take over the world and end human existance as we know it by pretending to fight for the rights of animals by infiltrating PETA and other non-profit and government organizations.
Maybe she meant none of those things. I can only take her words at face value. She said "strange." She didn't say "unworthy of respect."
So you're a freak. So what? Wear it as a badge of honor! I do.
Seriously, I know you posted in the alien thread and your views are unconventional. But I think anyone who conforms to all of society's norms and expectations is a weak follower who can't think for himself. I'd use the word "sheep," but that's a touchy subject right now, ironically enough, in that very thread. Don't be mad when people call you weird and crazy. It simply confirms that you have a grip on reality.

There are a lot of backyard "pitbull" breeders here and many dog fighting rings or show persons of your standard "sell them to Japan" variety. One person I used to work with (she was a client), sanctioned and ran local shows and had a breeding operation. The puppies were kept in crates all day in their own waste. Highly parasitized puppies (usually whips and roundworms--sometimes coccidia). They had the parvo protocol down pat, but we didn't treat all of the positive dogs. We saw a puppy in cardiac arrest (which was resuscitated several times) due to the high parasite burden. Real winner.

It is the showing that is not a good idea. I even knew a "guinea pig rescue" who had never bred cavies, but showed some of the showable rescues (doing fairly well--not wonderful, but enough to continue showing for a while and be competitive). She's really a collector and I have known other "rescues" to do so. It does make the reputable rescues look bad. Anyone can print off a few pamphlets, business cards, and a sign or two and call themselves "Guinea Pig Rescue." There are but few out there that I would consider true rescues and I like the idea of a printed list to help inexperienced members of the public distinguish the characteristics.
I did not read every line of bullshit you people put up, but I dont really care what you have to say. I had to leave yesterday because my sister needed me. I am sure you guys dont care about people just guinea pigs. What the hell does spelling have anything to do with guinea bigs? nothing you just want to be fat ass bitches. I came here and was totaly nice but not any more. I am leaving this board and yes Josephine I will be e-mailing you to give you my address just to prove to you that my animals are just as well taken care of as yours. None of my puupys have any health problems. I am a registered kennel and not a back yard breeder.OH, and I pay for my own house thank you I work hard for it and the government gives me no money so you can all just [expletive deleted] off.Josephine if you are interested e-mail me.

How many people are actually begging you for puppies? Why are your dogs kept in back yard kennels if you are all so fired up about your love for your pets?
It has been my experience that pits are nearly impossible to GIVE away, so I really am curious as to who is buying them.
A Fat Ass Bitch.
This is a definite troll in my eyes. Too many lies and inconsistencies.
