Action Alert: Protesters Needed Thursday in Charlotte

by YesBiscuit

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg ACC pound in NC took in 18,203 animals last year, killing 11,625 of them.  That's a kill rate of 64%.  The Char-Meck pound also likes to pose drugged cats for photos, torture cats with chokepoles and kill pets assembly line style, forcing living pets to watch others being killed and tossed into a wheelbarrow until it's their turn to die.  The pound doesn't adopt Pitbulls to the public.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise to learn that HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle thinks the Char-Meck pound is swell.  And according to an e-mail sent out by Char-Meck director Mark Balestra, Mr. Pacelle is going to stop by for a visit tomorrow before heading to an area book signing:

We have confirmed that HSUS President/CEO Wayne Pacelle will be at our facility this Thursday February 2nd at 4:30 PM for a Shelter tour. He has heard many great things about our organization  and community outreach  efforts to reduce euthanasia and decrease the over population of companion pets.

Please ensure that we and the facility are well prepared for this tour and uphold the standards that we represent.

In other words, dust off your chokepoles, spit-shine the wheelbarrows and get your cats drugged and posed in delightfully witty settings because the Animal Welfare Scammer in Chief is in town!

I hope area animal advocates will visit the Char-Meck facility on Thursday, February 2 at 4:30pm to speak for the 11,625 pets killed by the pound last year.  Cos I somehow doubt anyone inside the place is going to mention them.  Make a sign to speak for the victims of Char-Meck ACC and protest peacefully during Mr. Pacelle's visit.  Contact the local news to let them know what you're doing and why.

11,625 dead pets is not an achievement to be praised or rewarded.  HSUS is not humane and Char-Meck ACC is not a shelter.  Stand up for the truth.  Stand up for the voiceless pets in Charlotte.
