Carrie Ann Inaba Says "When You Get a Pet, It's Forever"

“Dancing with the Stars” judge and animal lover Carrie Ann Inaba is dedicated to protecting animals, especially dogs and cats who end up in the shelter system.

She had some words of wisdom that she shared on twitter this morning. If everyone listened, the number of animals waiting for homes in shelters, or even worse, being euthanized when a home can’t be found, would be drastically reduced. It’s nothing complicated. It’s nothing extreme. She just wants people to know that animals are not disposable.

Inaba wrote, “When you get a Pet, it’s Forever!!!! Even if you move. You Must find a way to keep ur pet. Put them into a shelter and they could die.”

If you talk to anyone involved in rescue, you’ll learn that moving is one of the biggest reasons people give when they surrender their companion to the shelter system. Maybe their new home won’t allow animals, or they are traveling a bit too far to be convenient to bring their dog or cat. Some leave their animal in the home after they move, hoping someone else will take care of him or her. Sadly, these stories are all too common. But it’s the animals who pay the price.

Listen to devoted animal advocate, Carrie Ann. A pet is forever.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
