October 15, 2013

July 26, 2010

On ISAR’s blog of April 4, 2008, Professor Henry Mark Holzer favorably reviewed Nathan J. Winograd’s then-new book “Redemption: The Myth of Overpopulation in America“.

The Puppy Mill Sewer Is Beginning To Overflow
June 4, 2010

Lately, more attention than ever before has been given to the immorality and criminality of puppy mills and the dereliction of duty by those charged with their oversight. Petland has been sued because of its complicity in the puppy mill outrage, in an effort to put the dog factory breeders out of business by choking off the retail end of the trade.

Ends and Means
May 28, 2010

ISAR supporters know that the fundamental goal driving our organization is to reduce, if not eliminate, the overpopulation of companion animals through humane education, emphasizing spay/neuter as a major solution to the problem.

Mandatory Spay/Neuter Beat Goes On

To that end, we have prepared a lengthy monograph on the subject, which includes our Model Mandatory Spay/Neuter Statute. ISAR’s… Read More

April 5, 2010

A few months ago the Nevada city of Las Vegas enacted a “mandatory” spay/neuter law. It requires that dogs and cats over the age of four months, “harbored” in the city, be sterilized (as well as being microchipped before adoption or release from impound). In principle, the city’s motive (reducing overpopulation and killing) is commendable and ISAR supports it. The… Read More

Breeders May Court Disaster
March 1, 2010

Earlier last week the Associated Press reported that various dog breeders in Pennsylvania have sued the PSPCA and an organization named Main Line Animal Rescue, claiming that the defendants violated the former’s “civil rights.” ISAR has not seen the complaint. However, putting aside whatever it alleges, there is an important point that needs to be made. By suing, the breeders… Read More

November 6, 2009

At this very moment, literally countless numbers of dogs, certainly hundreds of thousands, are held captive around the world in wretched conditions, while being used and abused as living breeding machines by conscienceless breeders, facilitators and commercial retail sales outlets whose only concern is for their own profit. Because much of that abuse occurs in the United States, and because… Read More
