Latest Activity: Mar 12


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.

I will be donating my time to an animal shelter helping the dogs and cats there. I love animals.
Comment by Steph S. on July 15, 2012 at 7:35pm
I give generously to many animal organizations. Today I mailed off a donation to the Humane Society and the other day I mailed in my donation to the ASPCA. Anyway, I give to the Austin Animal Shelter as well. Just a few of the organizations I give to. The list would be too long to put here.

Or, the cat food contains bones or brains from dead cows and dead sheep.  I think that's where mad cow disease originated in humans.

Dallas, I'm going to make a WAG (known as a Wild-Assed-Guess) and say that the cat disease is a prion, like Mad Cow Disease, Jacob-Creutzfeld, and Scrapie.  As time passes, I'm sure more will come out and you can prove me wrong.

What the heck!  I replied to a post about cute pet sloths.  Suddenly they turned into chihuahuas!   Dallas, did you post a piece about sloths, or am I hallucinating?   

Comment by Dogly on December 17, 2011 at 11:22pm

Oh, no! Don't tell me that sloths are the new fad pet.  And, please, don't tell me that Dallas Gaytheist really wants to OWN (buy??) an animal who belongs in the trees of South America.   Animal advocates are trying to outlaw the sale, importation and possession of exotic species.  The fact they are cute is not an excuse to exploit them.  Dallas, did you mean you would like to adopt a rescued sloth?  Of course you did!

Nevada air cargo worker loses job after reporting animal abuse

Lynn Jones was a baggage handler at Reno-Tahoe International Airport when she saw an emaciated hunting dog, its paws bloody, its body covered with sores.

The listless pointer was lying in a pet carrier in the cargo area of the airport on Nov. 15, waiting to be shipped to Texas.

"The Transportation Safety Authority officers couldn't even get the dog to stand up to be X-rayed," said Jones, who was then an employee of Airport Terminal Services, the facility's contractor.


Jones said her supervisor told her to load the dog on the plane because the animal's paperwork was in order and its condition wasn't her concern. She said she was warned she would lose her job if she kept carrying on about the dog.

Thanks always, Dallas, for keeping us informed.  I wrote my note to protect the chimps.
