HUMANE ATHEISTS is a group for people who are interested in trying to live a humane life by understanding the issues surrounding animal welfare.

Members: 261
Latest Activity: Apr 3


HUMANE ATHEISTS is for anyone interested in issues surrounding animal welfare and animal rights. You don't have to be a pet lover, a vegetarian, or an activist to join. You just have to like exploring new ideas and sharing information about the relationships between animals and people, and how we should or should not treat them.

I welcome posts on personal experiences, news and inspirational stories, action alerts, ethical questions, humane living options such as products and websites, and related topics.

I look forward to your contributions, and I hope that we can make HUMANE ATHEISTS one of the most active and vital groups on Atheist Nexus.

It's a problem everywhere especially bigger cities, but people stay ignorant.

My cats don't go outside & neither do my neighbor's cats.....which I'm kittysitting from Thursday to Tuesday.....spring break vacation.

Our biggest problem in the Los Angeles area is the large number of people who are too stupid to spay or neuter their pets, and then abandon them when they move.  There are groups that try to feed feral cat colonies, and Trap/Neuter/and Return them to their territories.

BUT right now (and for the past 6 months or more) we have been inundated with coyotes who have been forced out of their natural habitats by developers and the lack of water and prey animals up in the hills above us.  We hear them yipping and yodeling every time emergency vehicles go by on the boulevard 1 block from our house 3 or more times a day, or night..  We've also found coyote turds in our back the pool. A week ago there was a pack of them howling on our front porch at about 3 AM.

Our 2 cats are NEVER allowed to go outside!

The Pet Press home page is finally being updated...slowly.

Most of us in small cities as we are, have several pets, not just one. A lot of people here have both cats & dogs, so the one pet household is not common here. Some apartments even allow pets. We always allowed up to 2 pets when we rented out our basement suite.

I just read an article in The Pet Press about Wings of Rescue; they take dogs (and sometimes cats) who are languishing in overcrowded Los Angeles shelters to places in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, AND British Columbia) where there are more people who want to adopt them than there are here.

Check their web site, if you're interested:

It's a nice story, even if you aren't looking to adopt a pet.  At the moment.

Also, if you are on FlakeBook, The Pet Press has a site/page/whatever you call it.  (I don't "do" Flakebook, myself so I don't have a link for it.  Sorry.)

That doggie looks young except for the mouth.  Funny.  I'm saving it.
