12 Days of Xmas - Day 7: In Memory of Lucy, Oreo, Max and Parrot


DAY 7: In Memory of Lucy, Oreo, Max and Parrot
"Remembering Pit Bulls Whom We Loved"

Each year since Lucy was killed in 2007, we have remembered Lucy and all the dogs like her, who have been killed because of ignorance, fear and breed discrimination. In 2009, we added Oreo and Max to the Memorial Day and again we vowed that we would never forget. This year, a pit bull named Parrot, who was attending an adoption event in a Washington, DC park was viciously gunned down by a trigger happy police-thug. How many more names will we have to add before the unjust killings are no longer tolerated?

We will never forget you, Lucy.

We will never forget you, Oreo.

We will never forget you, Max.

We will never forget you, Parrot.

On December 20, 2010, the day of Lucy's death, a pit bull at a high risk shelter (ACC) in New York City, was rescued hours before he was to be killed. His name is Brucie and we dedicate his rescue to Lucy, Oreo, Max, Parrot and all of the other pit bulls victims.



For Lucy

Our action for Lucy will last from today until the Monday after Christmas. Please send a message to David Kahn, the person primarily responsible for having Lucy killed.

If you would rather phone David Kahn, he has a new number: 1-408-730-7464

For Oreo and Max

Our action for Oreo and Max is on-going with no end date in sight. We ask that you contact the resource development (fund raising) office of the ASPCA to let them know that you will not be supporting them financially until the ASPCA stops killing animals needlessly and stops claiming to be a No Kill shelter. You might also wish to add that the ASPCA should stop blocking Oreo's Law, legislation that has the power to save many animals.

Call the ASPCA at: 1-212-876-7700 or
