EUTHANASIA: Also called mercy killing is the act of putting to death painlessly or allowing to die, as by withholding extreme medical measures, a person or animal suffering from an incurable, esp. a painful, disease or medical condition. The act of abolishing life in the healthy, without consent, for any reason, cannot be called Euthanasia.

No Last Rites: No Priest, Pastor, Mullah, Rabii or Pundit for these Unfortunate Ones

Blessings for some dogs but none for those locked up at the Johnson City Animal Shelter.

"St. John's Episcopal Church will be holding a Celebration and a Blessing event for the lucky dogs with their owners during October, 2007. Dogs at the Johnson City Animal Shelter will not be receiving such blessings by any church or religious organization."


A slow, painful death awaits those whose destiny has brought them in contact with the heartless, demonic resurrected ones of bygone eras.

Death by exposure to a toxic gas is the method of extermination used by many municipal pounds. Before this event occurs it is also perfectly acceptable to leave cats and dogs for hours in sub-zero or searing hot temperatures, in metal animal control trucks.

Dying by a lethal gas like Carbon Monoxide or a lethal injection of Phenobarbitol is not painless. Phenobarbitol, and even the anesthesia supported death of Sodium Pentothal, Pancuronium Bromide and Potasium Chloride (given to death row inmates) is not pain-free as many Kill animal advocacy groups would have us believe.

The department of Agriculture, in North Carolina, [possibly in other States too] supports the highly painful and barbaric method of death by Carbon Monoxide.

No last rites, no loving goodbyes, for the innocent here. And the creators of this nightmare; the breeders, both commercial and individuals, continue to propagate their retarded greed and sentimental stupidity while the law makers continue to let it happen.

The theologian, Albert Schweitzer observed that the degeneracy of Western culture was a consequence of having little reverence for life. All life. A profound philosophical, humbling, and spiritual understanding can be summed up in his words: "An immediate and comprehensive fact about consciousness is I am life that wants to live, in the midst of life that wants to live." Such profound realizations can have a sobering effect on the propagandists and purveyors of the Kill form of animal control. But who reads Albert Schweitzer? or Saint Francis of Assisi ?or the Ahimsa of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi?

There are some priests in Johnson City, TN. who bless animals. But only the animals who are free and whose owners bring them to the dog park for leash free enjoyment and entertainment. Not one will wipe the tears of the prisoners, these cat and dog families behind cages at the Johnson City Kill Center. (Its obscene to call it a shelter) And the public, you and I, cannot go in and hold these poor souls in our arms, we cannot remove them from their cages for a last hug from the caring humans on earth. We have become slaves to PETA, to the Humane Society (more aptly called the Inhumane Society) to the fear mongers amongst us, who think that every stray animal is infected with transmissible deadly diseases, and to the Kill Shelters.

This is wrong, so very wrong. How can we let this go on people! What must we do? What can we do? How shall we do it? Remember the sins of commission and those of omission? We cannot be bystanders and watch this injustice occur every single day. We must stand up for truth. Let our stars shine with with the light of reverence for life.
