I recently met with a young man who, after having recently adopted a pet bunny from the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA, wanted to share a couple of observations and an idea. I'm always happy to meet with people, especially people who have already helped us save a life, and new ideas are always welcome.
Last Monday's San Francisco Chronicle front page reported a now oft-asserted but completely Bizarro world assertion that California's Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act (2008's Proposition 2 which was passed by the voters and is now law) has made the world a nice place for farmed chickens. Come on.
I won't and I don't criticize the work done by these national organizations. You should take the time to form your own opinions about the programs and services of any charitable organization you are thinking about supporting. What I do take exception to is those organizations making statements about their work designed to lead to questionable conclusions.
