'Ol Southern Style
Forgotten Shelter Dogs & Cats Suffer Horrific Torture under the Guise of Euthanasia.
Seventeen years of winks and nods by officials acting in violation of existing laws meant to protect animals from cruelty. Dogs and cats face slow suffocation while crammed together and left to die. No regulations exist that enforce the protection of these animals from cruelty. In crippling agony, many surviving animals then are dumped at landfills and buried alive. Living stray dogs and cats are being left by officials in trash bins.
The segment will bring to light some prime examples of shelter cruelty that’s been going on for many years and will inform listeners of current pending bills to make it stop. We will begin with a focused look at Georgia and North Carolina and educate listeners from those areas on specific action to take. The phone lines will later open to take calls as we discuss the silent shelter cruelties that run ramped across the states.
'Ol Southern Style takes a look into shelter cruelty with the south as an example of the kind of cruelty that's actually happening across America. In most cases these are county shelters that are funded by US tax payer dollars.
With Guests: Animal Law Attorney, Laura Allen; Attorney and Founder/ Director of Lifeline Animal Project in Atlanta Rebecca Guinn; President of The Humane Society of Eastern NC Peter MacQueen; Biologist, Animal Control & Vet Tech Linda Cordry
Hosted by Katia Louise with DivaVega live in the chat room as the Coordinator for Simulcast Discussions.
