When it matters - they remain silent?
Care In a recent article about the Affordable Care Act it was noted that Veterinarian costs will increase for those of us with pets as vets are using many technologies that are also found in human heath care. While this is a hot button item, I am only bringing it up because I have one question:
Where were these self-labeled “Humane/Protectors/Lobbyist/Speak for the dogs” organizations during the Affordable Care Act debate?
If they are truly in it for the dogs, they would have jumped in to offer sound advice on the bill on behalf of those of us involved in animal welfare but from what I can see they remained silent. One would guess that participating in something to inform pet owners of impacts of a real item of debate would have not brought in enough donations nor offered trips to far off destinations.
