I’m Angry

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is GREAT for homeless pets. (Click)

That’s not what makes me angry.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition saves more animals, FEEDS more homeless animals, DOES MORE for homeless animals than the ASPCA, the fund raising organization that HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SPCA and earned a C-rating with Charitywatch.org.

So, you move around the Interwebs and see all these pathetic ASPCA ads begging for money to feed a homeless dog, and almost NONE of it helps a homeless dog, and absolutely NONE of it goes to ANY SPCA.

ASPCA fraud
This makes me so mad. People think they’re helping actual dogs.

The ASPCA is just riding the emotional coat tails of legitimate, animal-helping SPCA’s.

So, at the end of this article is the story of a woman who has spent 11 years of her life volunteering at the Lousiana SPCA. And you look at what she’s doing, and what they’ve done.

Then you think about all those people sending  money to the ASPCA  — –  BELIEVING that they helped this woman, or those dogs in ANY SMALL WAY – –  but they didn’t. At all.

When you donate to ASPCA all you do is pay for more ads asking for more money. Oh, well they do save dogs from research, farms and bad homes. One at a time, usually. Estimates hold that if the ASPCA spent their budget on actual DOGS, and based on how few strays they save and feed, they would be spending $34,000 per dog.

Hills feeds more than 100,000 homeless dogs EVERY DAY.

Hills pet nutrition has put more than $280 MILLION dollars into feeding homeless dogs!

The ASPCA touches the lives of a ten of thousands of dogs every YEAR. (The lack of an “S” after “ten” wasn’t a typo.*)

Let’s see, that works out to:

13,000 divided by 100,000 x 365 = 0.00036

That calculates out to:

ASPCA benefits per 100K homeless animals: .036%

Hill’s benefits per 100K homeless animals: 99.96%

I’m not making this up. Here’s my reference: https://www.activistfacts.com/organizations/american-society-for-the-prevention-of-cruelty-to-animals-aspca/

So, I’m angry.

The ASPCA is just riding the emotional coat tails of legitimate, animal-helping SPCA’s.

Look at what this woman does: Without a DIME from ASPCA. And seriously consider donating to your LOCAL SPCA instead of that ASPCA sham.

So, how DOES the ASPCA spend the money you give them?

They bankroll high profile animal rescues. It’s “what they do” and it’s good press. They’ll go into a back yard or a bad situation and save an endangered dog from bad owners or caregivers. I get it. That’s really nice. So, do your fundraising based on the hundreds of animals you pull out of harm’s way and don’t imply that you’re benefiting shelter animals or homeless pets.

I think it also bears mentioning how much of the revenue is spent on a decidedly Vegan agenda, and toppling the meat industry. Face it, ASPCA is just a ‘soft’ PETA.

This is The LCD Screen Scope
We Did The Tutorial With. I did a twenty page tutorial (Here's the tutorial) with video, audio, images and even little parasite movies to show you how to use a microscope. 

This Filter is Good For BIG Dirty Tanks
I've been wrestling with water quality with the turtles. The sponges work GREAT, but in THOSE turtle systems where they eat MICE the poops are bulky. This filter can handle it. In "Tortu's" tank, it's got an 800 gph pump and it rocks. 

PraziPro for Flukes
They nailed it. Figured out the solubility and worked out the dosing. It works. 

Buy Some Good Koi?
No, this isn't really for the 'high end' collector y'all. But for someone who isn't near a decent garden center, here are "good-to-quite-good" Koi you will like at a very good price. I know these guys personally.

Best Food, Ever
It's made for (and I discovered it for) my Blood Parrots but the small size, intense color enhancers and excellent formulation make it superb young-Koi food. Oh, and it's AMAZING on color-cichlids like Flowerhorn and Blood Parrots. 

Pro Air 60 Aerator is a VERY high output air pump pushing my whole fish room (17+ drops), and I have one at home driving everything there, and I have one as a back up. 

Formalin Malachite (Not dilute)
There are formalin malachite preparations at 10%, 22% and 37%. There's economy in the concentrates. Hard to get Prime shipping because air transport is curtailed. This is a good value on 32 ounces. 

Topical For Koi and Pond Fish Ulcers
I like 7% tincture of iodine because it stains but it's hard to hurt anything with it. Used with a WOVEN gauze, this works well to clean and disinfect a wound. Only use ONCE. Do not 'repeatedly' scrub wounds. 

Confectioner's Glaze 
Is the way to bind a medication to fish food. Gone are the days of paste food and oil. The write up is done, it's RIGHT HERE.

Koi Health & Disease
Hopefully this link takes you to the newest edition by PRIME to get it to your house the fastest. 

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?

CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.

Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy. 

LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths. 

If you're making medicated feed for a larger group of fish, this will come in handy. Dosing is available in the site. 

For me, filtration-of-choice
For aquariums, even small Koi holding facilities or small ponds. These sponge filters are cheap, easy to clean, and they clear hazes very well when used with some Accuclear or similar.

Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
Make great hospital or quarantine facilities. They SHOULD cost about $200-300 depending on size, but this, lower quality unit (while panned in some reviews) may be good. Don't overfill and make sure it's propped up.

1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
I have several of these ALLIED PRECISION stainless ones that are a couple years old. Working still. 

Potassium Permanganate 
500 grams could be a lifetime supply but it's 50% more than the 100g cost wise, for 500% more amount. Dosing is in the site and the book.

What Does Ajax Eat?
I looked for something well formulated, with meat as the first ingredient. Something UNDER $2/lb and something they could deliver for free. And this was it. He looks and feels great on it.
