Arizona Humane Society unconsciously are part of cruelty to animals

I left the comment below in the link above, but they could not deal with the painful truths I mentioned in my comment, so they deleted my comment and unfriended me, hypocrites. How are they going to help the animals and anyone in that matter if they can’t handle the truth?
The organizations that supposedly help and care for the animals are part of the problem. These people call themselves experts in the care of animals and proclaim to love them and to know what’s best for them, but all they do is create the illusion of love for animals and under the disguise of helping and caring, covertly are part of cruelty to animals and they prolong their suffering. I lost completely faith in these organizations like the Arizona Humane Society and all the people that proclaim to love animals. I know they know where the people in trouble are that need help and assistance, but they put their blinds on and they just go rescue the animals when the people get in trouble and the law gets involved and the cameras are on, then they do what should have been done long ago to prevent cruelty and suffering, in this way they look good in front of the public’s eyes and manipulate the public to donate money to their organizations, but really secretly don’t care about the animals or anyone else’s suffering. They don’t fool me anymore.

Below is a letter I wrote to the Arizona Humane Society.

To the person in charge of the Arizona Humane Society,
It is with sadness I am informing you that I am no longer a fan of the Arizona Humane Society and unless you change the policy I will no longer be supporting your foundation, so until you change policy please remove me from your donors list.
The attached letters explains the reasons I will no longer be supporting Arizona Humane society, if you like to read them.
Wishing you much courage to open your eyes and be able to see and do what is the best for the suffering animals in our community and I hope in the future the Arizona Humane Society will be able to respect the feelings of the humans and of the animals that come to your organization for help.

Arizona Humane Society unconsciously are part of cruelty to animals

The person in charge of the Arizona Humane of society in the late 80s and yearly 90s was much more in reality and doing much better job of preventing cruelty to animals, but who ever is in charge today must be in complete denial of his own reality and the reality of the animals in our community and under the mask of caring and the disguise of helping are unconsciously part of cruelty to animals.
These words by Alice Miller in her article “What is Hatred?” came very true for me yesterday: “…there is also the justified hatred for a person tormenting us in the present, either physically or mentally, a person we are at the mercy of and either cannot free ourselves of, or at least believe that we cannot. As long as we are in such a state of dependency, or think we are, then hatred is the inevitable outcome.”

I my case yesterday the Arizona humane society was my tormenter, they showed no respect for my feelings and the cat’s feelings, I have no doubt when they were little their own parents had no respect for their feelings and now they have no respect for other feelings either and unconsciously show how they were treated as little children, by reenacting their childhood drama with the public they are “suppose” to help and under the mask of caring for animals, they really are part of cruelty to animals with their judgments and self-righteous attitude. They deceived me by agreeing to respect my wishes, but after they charged $100 to my credit card, they changed their mind and they did not respect my wishes and from now on they will no longer see another dime from me, as long the Arizona humane society is run by unconscious people. A lot of these people trying to help animals a lot of times unconsciously are part of cruelty to animals under the disguise of help, because really people cannot help other beings without healing their own childhood traumas first, just like “therapists” cannot help their patients without facing their own history first and under the disguise of help harm even more their patients, how they can help the general public, if the “helping professionals” fear their own personal history and repressed feelings.

My experience as been the same as Alice Miller’s in her article “The Longest Journey” she says: “…It has taken me all my life to allow myself to be what I am and to listen to what my inner self is telling me, more and more directly, without waiting for permission from others or currying approval from people symbolizing my parents.”

J L commented on your status:
"You are 100% correct. I was heavily abused as a child and I have acted that out on pets in the past. In my late teens I became aware of it, and have corrected it, but the urges are still there when my stress level gets high. At this time in my life, I have decided not to have children because of this, but perhaps one day I will trust myself enough with a child. I will be happy either way. There is nothing inside of me screaming "HAVE A FAMILY!"
You are right about your analysis of therapists too. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, and tried twice to advance my degree, only to be met with disaster each time. I had not (have not?) dealt with (remembered?) everything."

J, I am so sorry to hear you were heavily abused as a child; it should not hurt to be a child. Congratulations of becoming conscious of it and taking responsibility for your wounds and freeing yourself of the compulsion of wanting children to unconsciously use as scapegoats, like most parents do in our society. These people at the Arizona Humane Society use unconsciously the animals as scapegoats to hide behind, so they don’t have to feel their own pain and unconsciously are passing their suffering into the animals under the disguise of caring for them, pretending they really love animals, but only they give is the illusion of love, like their parents gave them and really don’t care about the suffering of the animals just like no one cared about their suffering when they were small children. It comes to mind these words by Alice Miller: “Thank you so much for your brave and insightful statement. You are right, unwanted children are usually mistreated. But there exist as a rule also a huge amount of people who were "wanted" indeed, but only for playing the role of the victims that their parents needed to be able to take revenge on. They were wanted to give their parents what the parents never had gotten from their own parents: love, adoration, attention and so many other things. Otherwise, why would so many people have five or more children when they have no time for them? Why do they adopt children if their body refuses to give them what they apparently "want?"
The never acknowledged, never felt pain of their childhood calls for being avenged. They go to church, they pray, they honor their parents, forgive them everything – and they mistreat their children at home, often in a very cruel way, AS IF THIS WERE THE MOST NATURAL THING, because they learned this so early. Their children learn this perverted behavior, also very early, and will later do the same; and so this perverse behavior continues for millennia. Unless people are willing to SEE the perversion of their parents and are ready to consciously refuse to imitate it.
You are not being "sickeningly sarcastic," you only dared to speak out the truth that most people are afraid of seeing or talking about.”

Unlived Anger

I hear all the time people saying: I don't understand why people hurt an animal or don't care about the suffering of animals? Well, people hurt animals or don't care because they were abused when they were little children and some people never acknowledge their abuse and work through it and they unconsciously and cowardly take it out on the most vulnerable, defenseless beings in our society, children and animals. When they were little children nobody really cared how they felt and now they don't care about other beings feelings either. The Arizona Humane Society blindly, silently, covertly and unconsciously is passing their suffering into the animals that cannot express their true feelings under the mask of caring and the disguise of helping -- We cannot be animals rights advocate without being children rights advocate.

Anyone that likes to understand why mad scientists do the cowardly acts in the link below:

Read the article "Unlived Anger" by Dr. Alice Miller in the link below.

It's quite a big article; here is the part where Dr. Alice Miller talks about a mad scientist.

"An American professor, for example, has been conducting experiments for years with brain transplants. In an interview with the magazine Tele, he reports that he has already succeeded in replacing the brain of one monkey with that of another. He does not doubt that in the foreseeable future it will be possible to do the same thing with human beings. Readers have a choice here: they can be thrilled at so much scientific progress, or they can wonder how such absurdity can be possible and what purpose such pursuits can serve. But a piece of seemingly unimportant information may produce an "aha" reaction in them, for Professor White speaks of "religious feelings" connected with his endeavor. Questioned by the interviewer, he explains that he had a very strict Catholic upbringing and in the opinion of his ten children had been raised like a dinosaur. I don't know what is meant by this, but I can imagine that this image refers to antediluvian methods of child-rearing. What does that have to do with his scientific work? Perhaps this is the unconscious background for Professor White's experiments: by devoting all his energy and vitality to the goal one day being able to transplant brains in human beings, he is fulfilling his long-harbored infantile wish to be able to replace his parents' brains. Sadism is not an infectious disease that strikes a person all of a sudden. It has long prehistory in childhood and always originates in the desperate fantasies of a child who is searching for a way out of a hopeless situation."

Hi J,

Thank you for passing along my message. Eric from PETA called me and it was nice to talk with someone with their eyes open able to see. I felt understood and not as alone.

I appreciate it
Also thank you to you too for all that you do to prevent cruelty to animals.
Best wishes, sylvie 
Hi again,

Yes, I do work for PETA.

Thank you so much for letting me know about all of this--I've passed along all of that information to the appropriate PETA staff members.

Thanks again for all that you do for animals!

-J with peta2
I saw your post about the Arizona Humane Society abusing animals.

What exactly are they doing to hurt the animals?

Thank you for all that you do for animals.

-J with PETA
Hi J,
I am wondering, do you work for Peta? Maybe I should clarify my bad experience with the Arizona humane society. I was very aware that the Arizona Humane Society over the last 20 years has been run by people very emotionally blind, that, cannot deal with their own reality and the reality of the animals and with their policy not to euthanize, they send the animals back into the community into bad situations, when they are overcrowded they go on TV saying they have waved their adopting fee asking the public to please to adopt their animals. Who are they fooling? Don’t they know in order to prevent cruelty to animals you must never wave the adoptions fee, the only fee that must be waved is the surrendering fee, but now they charge for surrendering fees and wave adoption fees! How emotionally blind can they be? Can’t they see in this way they are being part of cruelty to animals? Because most people in our community if they have to pay for surrendering fees, they just abandon the animal somewhere or kill it inhumanely. 
Anyway last Saturday I went there to euthanize two sick cats, one was sick and feral and the other one was friendly, they were stray, but I have been taking care of them for over year, I had them fixed, because in my entire life no animal has ever had babies under my watch. I was happy to pay them $100 for this service and to let me see the animal’s bodies afterwards, but after taking the $100 from my credit card they changed their minds. They told me they put to sleep the feral one, but they did not let me see his body, the other one they refused to put to sleep, so I ask them to give me the cat back that I would take him to a regular vet, but they refused to do that too, they showed no considering for my feelings or the cat’s feelings, because I am sure if the cat could express his feelings would rather be with me than with these judgmental and self-righteous people, with me he would know for sure would never be hurt or put in a bad situation. I felt abused and deceived by them and I will never go there again and for sure I will not donate another dollar to them Thanks for your interest and for listen.
 J, thank you for writing, they motto of being a “No kill Shelter” and not wanting to euthanize they are just prolonging the animals suffering and putting them right back in bad situations, they put their blinds on refusing to see the real plight of the animals in our community and that makes them part of cruelty to animals and to people that real want to help prevent cruelty to animals, it’s very frustrating, because its hard to find conscious people with courage to face reality and willing to help and support you. Sadly if we want to prevent animal abuse, pain and suffering euthanasia is needed in today’s world. People that fight against euthanasia are not able to deal with their own reality and are projecting their beliefs and fears of death into the animals. Animals are not afraid of dying, they are afraid of getting hurt.  Like it or not people that are against euthanasia is part of cruelty to animals. Is the same thing with the pro-lifers fighting for the unborn children -- people that fight to stop abortion is part of child abuse. Alice Miller’s words in her book “Breaking Down The Wall of Silence” are so true. She says:”Not everyone is capable of thinking in real, concrete terms.  Many seek refuge in religious beliefs.  In their weakness, they place their trust in “relics,” awaiting salvation at the hands of one stronger than themselves.  Anyone who claims to be a strong and knowledgeable authority for such people, and to be acting on their behalf, has the duty to be conscious of the appropriate facts.  If they aren’t, if they ignore or neglect that duty, clamming instead that their palpable lack of information and their abstract conceptions of “life” are sanctioned by God and practiced in the name of humanity, they are acting against life, by misusing the weakness and trust of the faithful and dangerously confusing them.  The injunction against abortion goes even further:  Consciously or unconsciously, it represents support for cruelty against children and active complicity in the creation of unwanted existences, existences that can easily become a liability for the community at large.
When I see the passion with which Catholic priests - men childless by choice - fight against abortion, I can’t help asking what it is that motivates them.  Is it a desire to prove that unlived life, as perhaps their own destinies suggest, is more important and more valuable than lived life?  Was that, perhaps, how the parents of those passionately committed to stopping abortion thought, though they expressed it in different ways?  Or is it a case of seeing to it that others share the same fate as oneself?  Both are possible.  Both are dangerous, when people are driven to blind and destructive actions by the dead hand of their own repression.
It is, in fact, not surprising to find that those who are both victims and apologist for the use of violence and severity against children are often those who most passionately proclaim their love of the unborn child, i.e., the kernel of life.  Abortion can, indeed, be seen as the most powerful symbol of the psychic annihilation and mutilation practiced since time immemorial on children.  But to combat this evil merely at the symbolic level deflects us from the reality we should not evade for a moment longer:  the reality of the abused and humiliated child, which, as a result of its disavowed and unresolved injuries, will insidiously become, either openly or aided by hypocrisy, a danger to society.
It is above all the children already born that have a right to life - a right to coexistence with adults in a world in which, with or without the help of the church, violence against children has been unequivocally outlawed.  Until such legislation exists, talk of “the right to life” remains not only a mockery of humanity but a contribution to its destruction.”

 I also agree so much with the article below by Heather Moore
“Why No-Kills Are No Solution” by Heather Moore
Euthanasia is a touchy, emotional subject. Some people get upset because animal shelters and animal rights organizations like PETA must euthanize animals (many of whom are abused, aggressive, and otherwise unadoptable). People need to understand that a painless injection of sodium pentobarbital, administered by a trained, caring individual, is a merciful alternative to a life of misery and loneliness.

As long as people buy animals from breeders and pet stores and don't spay or neuter their animal companions, open-admission shelters and organizations like PETA will be forced to do society's dirty work. Every year, between three and four million dogs and cats are euthanized in U.S. shelters alone. There simply aren't enough homes for them all. Shoving animals into cages or kitchen cabinets, or warehousing them wherever else there is space is not a humane or effective solution.

It can be hard to accept this though. I once volunteered at a no-kill cat shelter. There were cages full of cats everywhere and countless more cats littered the floor, the kitchen counter, and everywhere else there was a spot. They were fed regularly, but they were starved for attention. The few volunteers spent as much time with them as possible, but between dishing out plate after plate of food, changing pan after pan of litter, and trying to keep the place presentable, there was just never enough time. Too many people came by to drop off unwanted cats (so many, in fact, that they were often turned away) and too few came by to adopt.

No-kill shelters may assuage our consciences, but they are simply not in the animals' best interests. They're often filled beyond capacity and cannot provide adequate care for the animals. Animals at these shelters often spend years living in cages with little human contact. Many become withdrawn, depressed, or acquire other anti social behaviors that further decrease their chances of being adopted.

Because of space limitations, no-kill shelters often can't take new animals in. So while a no-kill shelter can claim that it doesn't kill animals that doesn't mean that it "saves" them either. If "refused" animals are lucky, they're taken to another shelter that does euthanize. Others, however, may be dumped by the roadside, where they suffer fates far worse than a humane death by sodium pentobarbital.

Euthanasia may be unpopular, but those who truly care about animals must do what's best for them. They deserve a peaceful release from a world in which they are often abused and neglected. All too often, the only kind word or gentle touch a homeless animal ever receives is from the person who must end the animal's life.

Of course, open-admission shelters and groups like PETA wouldn't need to euthanize animals if people would sterilize their animals; adopt animals from full-service shelters instead of buying them, and push for mandatory spay/neuter legislation.

  1. This was very interesting to read. I hope that if there is abuse or cruelty at the Arixona Humane Society, that your efforts help change it. I also think that if they charged you one hundred dollars for the service of euthanizing two animals, they should refund part of your money if they chose not to euthanize one of them. Very possibly the one they chose not to euthanize was not sick enough, and was not dangerously aggressive, and was considered adoptable. I work at an animal clinic and the animal shelter in our town and we try very hard to avoid having to kill any animal if it is healthy enough in body and mind to be placed in a good home. I hope that cat found a good home too:)

  2. Thank you for your comment and kind words. Let’s hope the cat found a good home, but his changes are very slim, because more often than not they go right back into the streets and abusive situations or into overcrowded homes that they end up living in garages and cages for many, many years and that is no quality of life for the cats or for the humans.
