A new ad from the ASPCA restates the obvious, and is perfectly effective in its delivery.

Our animal companions cannot tell us when they are hurt, distressed or hungry. Please join the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to lend your voice to animals—help us to help them live lives free from abuse, pain and fear.

What will you do this year to be a voice for the voiceless?

  1. We have seen quite a few good ads from them lately. who couldn’t love a pup like this one?

  2. That would be because HSUS isn’t an animal rescue org, it’s a lobby group. Huge difference between the two and equally important.

  3. What have you to say about the massacre of the 100+ sled dogs from Whistler, BC by Robert Fawcett. The Vancouver Sun broke the story on January 31st. Fawcett murdered the animals by shooting them and slitting their throats, in full view of the others who were chained up and could not escape. He later filed for Disability Benefits for Post Traumatic Stress that were accorded to him but in the irony of all ironies, the pogrom which might have gone uncovered was leaked to the press because of the horrific detail his application included. There has been world-wide outrage and a call to boycott the Whistler skiing businesses. Best of all there are candlelight vigils and a declared “Red Ribbon Day of Rememberance” on April 23rd with supporters challenging the authorities to enforce anti-cruelty laws and make penalties stronger. Where have you been in all this?

    • I was talking about the growing awareness of cities and shelter groups around the world who are planning vigils and protests on April 23rd. Wouldn’t you be doing a great service if you contacted the organizations that are sponsoring these Facebook generated and inspired memorials and help them publicize?

      I have not seen anything that the ASPCA has issued about the Whistler Sled Dogs Massacre or HSUS.

  4. I don’t know why, but I was expecting the dog to speak. I think that would have been a more memorable commercial, but this one was good. Just not sure if it’s memorable enough to capture people’s attention so they get the message.
