Latest Activity: Jun 20, 2017


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 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.

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.
Comment by Dogly on October 3, 2011 at 1:03pm
You misunderstand me.  I looked at the index of products and saw by their names that some were made from animals.  The company only brags that they are not tested on animals.  Steak is not tested on animals, either.
Comment by Dogly on October 3, 2011 at 10:31am
Dallas, This company uses animal ingredients.  I just checked the first page of the product index.  Not tested on animals , made from animal parts and exudates.

URGENT NEED for horse transport for evacuation in Bastrop County, TX. Barns that were used to house evacuees are now in the fire's path. Rt 304 still open both ways. Anyone... in the area who can help, please call Beth at 512-467-4893 or Rachel at 512-581-2940. There at least 43 horses in immediate need at their rescue, surely there will be more. **Please cross post!!**

I'm posting this which I received from a close friend who is involved in pet rescues, so I believe it is 100% legitimate. Please, if anyone can help transport even just one horse, call. Thank you so much.

I'm cross posting this from my discussion on the Bastrop, TX fires -- just 25 miles from where I live in Austin, TX
