Stop killing Innocent Puppies! (Petition)
To the President of the Dalmatian Club of America: Dr. Charles Garvin. On
your website you warn people that 12% of all Dalmatians are born deaf and
should be euthanised and that: "Too many children have faced the plastic
surgeon's knife after innocently touching a sleeping, deaf dog... a dog
which in every other way was the most perfect pet imaginable. DEAF DOGS ARE
POTENTIALLY VERY DANGEROUS."
When questioned about this, Dr. Garvin, you defended the continued breeding
and killing of one in eight Dalmatian puppys (thousands in a year) for the
protection of children and the "betterment of the Dalmatian breed." We feel
this practice is unethical, immoral, and illogical when the end result is
only to perfect a companion dog.
There are a multitude of dog breeds available today that aren't prone to
being dangerous to children and of which nearly 100% of the puppies born are
viable and well suited for companions. This petition has been formed to ask
your club to put a moratorium on the breeding and slaughter until a positive
DNA test is available for your breeding dogs!
It is hoped this petition will also serve to educate parents of this danger
to their innocent children. We feel it's unethical and immoral to breed and
promote ANY breed of animal of which you advise that approximately 1/8 of
them be killed for the safety of children!
