Don’t leave them behind

It is extremely worrying to know that parts of America such as Texas and Florida are experiencing the impact of powerful hurricanes. The horrendous natural disasters have destroyed thousands of homes, businesses, offices and facilities in these areas. Sadly however, during such disasters, animals are often the first ones to be left behind, and saving the life of  a human takes precedence over the life of an animal. The same thing happened during the recent Hurricane Harvey in Florida. But this time around, what was most disturbing was the fact that animals were left behind to die during the disaster.

The helpless animals, such as dogs in this case, have had to suffer immensely during the storms. As can be seen in the article, there is an uproar regarding dogs being tied up during the hurricanes which made it impossible for them to escape. In fact, the authorities may have encouraged people to leave their pets behind in some areas, but they should not have been tied up and left to suffer from the strong winds and rain. No one wants to be put in such a position, and neither do animals.

Such acts are extremely cruel and inhumane. No human should be tied up, and no animal should be tied up like this either. I am glad to see that people spoke up against such acts because this makes society a better place. When we are not afraid and speak up against injustice, society becomes better for all of us including animals. We must always be kind to animals because they are just the same us. Below are some photos to share with you all. You can see how terrified some of them are but they are totally helpless to do anything about their situation. Please always be kind to animals and treat them well. They really do depend on rely on you for all of their needs. Please spread awareness to be kind to animals. As awareness grows, we can alleviate the sufferings of animals that we have so much power over. I hope we use our power to be compassionate. Never hurt animals.

Some People Left Their Dogs Tied Up To Die In The Flood And It Will Break Your Heart

2 weeks ago by Elizabeth

Houston, Texas, is currently experiencing catastrophic levels of flooding due to the torrential rains being dumped in the region by tropical storm Harvey. Five people have been reported dead so far, many more are injured, and thousands have been displaced. But as people flee to save themselves, many are forgetting to take their animals with them, and as you can see from these heartbreaking pictures, dogs are being left behind to fend for themselves in what might be the worst flood in the history of Houston.

Despite Texan officials repeatedly warning people about leaving their pets and livestock behind, one dog was spotted holding onto a road barrier while a river of rain threatened to carry it away, while others have been seen chained up to trees and telephone poles in areas that have seen as much as 10 inches of rainfall in just 24 hours.

“I promise you, that I will hold anyone accountable that unlawfully restrains their dog in extreme weather conditions,” said Chief Stephen Carlisle in Roman Forest, about 40 miles north of Houston. “Dogs are your family members too.” We could not agree more. Our hearts go out to the people and pets who are currently affected by tropical storm Harvey.

Owners Who Left Their Pets To Drown During Hurricane Irma Face Felony Charges

BY ANDREW BLAKE | ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

Owners who leave their dogs on their own while evacuating could face felony charges in Florida.

Owners who leave their dogs on their own while evacuating could face felony charges in Florida.

 

Authorities Are Finding Dogs Tied Up And Left Behind

Authorities in South Florida may charge people with felonies for abandoning their pets, leaving them no chance to escape in the path of Hurricane Irma.

Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control director Diane Sauve said the agency rescued about 40 dogs in the days before Hurricane Irma hit Florida, according to USA Today. Sauve said some were tied up and others were put in pens or enclosed yards with no means to escape.

“There is absolutely no excuse for doing that,” Sauve said.

The Florida Department of Health made a statement on Twitter on Sunday about it. “Do not leave your dogs tied up or chained when evacuating,” the health department stated. “Floodwaters are dangerous for people & pets. #Irma”

Sauve said her agency will pursue felony animal cruelty charges if they are able to gather enough evidence and find and identify a pet’s owners, USA Today reported.

The Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control agency’s shelter also took in about 60 cats and dogs that were given up by their owners.

“These are things that are not unexpected during a situation like this,” she said. “It’s always disappointing. Our goal is to keep pets and people together.”

They won’t be able to reclaim their pets when they return, Sauve told the Sun-Sentinel.

“We are pretty clear when you surrender your animal you give up your rights,” she said.

The animal agency also gave tips on how to treat and handle dogs during the hurricane.

– Don’t let your dog out right after the storm passes, it’s going to be confused by the damage and debris. Animal caretakers see an a spike in animal injuries after storms because animals get cut and caught on debris.

– If you come upon an abandoned pet, use caution. The combination of confused dogs and stressed people result in an uptick of dog bites after storms.

Please help spread the word that if people treat animals like this, they’ll face prison time.

    It’s really hear breaking seeing the dogs being tied during the natural disaster. I’m not sure if it’s intended, forgotten or for whatever reason. But for sure it’s negligent and selfish. If you care for them just like your kids, you will not tie them and leave them at one place.

    Dogs do have feeling but just not in the way how we express them but by saying so, it doesn’t mean that we cannot learn to understand their behavior to know how they feel. Just like our children, siblings, friends and etc. Some of us will observe and understand one feeling when doing a certain gesture. So to animals, if we want to understand them, we can learn to do so.

    Don’t keep them when you feel cute and dump them when you feel them like a burden. Don’t do what you don’t like people do to you.

    Animals show love for humans! Cow, lions, apes, dogs, bears, parrots and more can all be very affectionate and show surprising emotions when it comes to expressing their love for people. An emotional animals hugging humans video.

    It is very heartbreaking to see all those animals chained up and trapped under the storm and hurricane. How those owners can just abandon their pets and escaped to their safety without a thought of consideration for their pets. It is very irresponsible for them to let their pets fend of themselves let alone chained and trapped. They don’t have any chance of surviving if the owners can’t get back in time to rescue them.

    Animals are sentient beings. They too feel pain, loneliness, and fear. It is unfair to take away their chance of escaping and surviving during a disaster. Keeping them there is just like a death sentence.

    It is nice to see law has been implemented to punish those pet owners that do this monstrosity and neglected the safety of their pets. I bet now those pet owners will think twice before abandoning their pets like that.

  4. Yee Yin on Aug 21, 2018 at 11:51 pm

    hat a sad news to see these pets being abandoned and left behind when a disaster strikes. Their owners have run away for their lives, taking with them things that are important to them. However, the pets are not one of them.

    From the news, we can see that many pets in Houston, Texas were abandoned during the flood. Many of them still chained up and left outside the house. They had no roof to protect them from the rain. It must have been very cold. They had no food or water. Some were just soaked in the water.

    We have to always remember the pets are like our own family, just that they cannot speak or talk to express themselves. But they have also negative and positive emotions, they have fear too. If we want to keep a pet, make sure we will take care of them even when they are sick. If we cannot do that, it is better not to keep a pet.

    The few minutes a day we spend on social media creating awareness for animals who cannot speak is purely spiritual and humanistic practice because we are trying to alleviate pain from another sentient beings and that makes us more spiritual, and that makes us more spiritual and more humane.

    This meme is powerful. Who you hang around with and the types of attitude they have is who you will be influenced by many times and who you will become in the future. Look at your friends and the people that always surround you to know who you will become.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article/news. I think we should not leave our pets behind and tied them up during flood or emergency. Because animals also feel pain and suffer, we should take it with us instead of leaving them behind or just abandoned them. Our pets are also part of our family, we should not treat them in this way. We should let them become part of our family. As an owner, another reason we should take them with us is because they are just animals, they can’t rescue themselves, they need us to help them to get food and find way out.

  11. Fong on Oct 15, 2017 at 11:57 am

    The saddest of all are the animals that are kept captive int heir cages or end of their chain or leash. Very heartbreaking. If they are to be left behind due to constrains of their owners’ fleeing, they should be left free to at least fend for themselves. Give them an avenue for survival if nothing else.

    But,all said and done, there are still some very compassionate people around who would go around rescuing these animals whenever they can. There were also many people who went out of their way to make sure their pets were safe and were with the family. These actions put faith back into humanity.

    One should make the effort to make sure that the pets who are like family be brought along with the family. If not, then it would be kinder to just not have pets in the first place as losing pets can be traumatic to children as well as being cruel to the animals.

    I feel humans do not deserve the loyalty that dogs give to their owners.

    Hope many people will learn not to abandon their pets or keep their pets tied up when they are fleeing. I remember watching movies when disaster is about to strike farmers will release their horses and farm animals. Its good there is greater awareness of this in the media about pet owners not taking car of their pets when they leave a disaster zone.

  13. Anne Ong on Sep 30, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    These animals were supposed to leave together and stay safely with their owners during the dire time of emergency but sadly, they were left behind. Its heart breaking after looking through those pictures of pets ,poorly managed by their owners. The pet dogs were left helpless and the owner just saves themselves not realising or forgotten about their pets. Dogs been chained ,kept in their cage or left alone helpless unattended. Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for sharing this article to create more awareness to be more compassionate and caring towards our pets and animals. 🙏

  14. Irene Lim on Sep 25, 2017 at 9:47 pm

    It is certainly inhumane to leave our animals behind tied or caged in a storm or hurricane. How could they escape? How could the owners so unkind and inconsiderate? Surely these animals will be drown and die. When I read about these animals left behind this way my heart goes out to them. It is such an unthinkable act.

  15. Stella Cheang on Sep 24, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    Many human beings, including ourselves, are selfish and only care for ourselves. Especially when it comes to situations that are challenging or pose a threat to our comfort zone. In situations like this, something/someone will have to make way, the one with the least priority is in the inevitable receiving end, most of the time. In this case, the poor pets took the blunt. In some other cases, it could be the ailing parents/old folks/someone.

    It is our selfish mind that causes the selfish act and results in harm, pain and suffering on others. When we learn and practice Dharma, we can follow Guru’s teaching to help us tame this selfishness by always thinking for others, put ourselves in the shoes of others. In this way, no way will be left behind, ever.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this sharing.

  16. Callista on Sep 23, 2017 at 11:04 pm

    Sad to see this situation, but some pet owner tends to forego or forget their pets during a crisis. Bear in mind when we adopt or have a pet is our responsibility to take care and treat them as part of a family members. Don’t ever neglect them because they have feelings like us.
    I’m glad to hear the Florida Department of Health speak up for them.

  17. Samfoonheei on Sep 21, 2017 at 6:41 am

    Its heart breaking after looking through those pictures of pets ,poorly managed by their owners or maybe they thought it will be safe or left them to die in the terrible powerful hurricanes. The pet dogs were left helpless and the owner just saves themselves not realising or forgotten about their pets. Dogs been chained ,kept in their cage or left alone helpless unattended.
    I am glad many people voiced up these issues as pets are human too, pets deserved much better treatment, care ,love and hugs. The owner should have think of a better way instead leaving their pet dogs to suffer. At least free them gave them a chance or put in a higher ground. Leaving them behind in bad times is bad enough then in the first place should not taken the pets in.
    It’s a wonderful news that the authorities concerned are doing more to help those suffering dogs and taking stern actions against those irresponsible owner.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these post and had it shared with my friends .

  18. Edwin Tan on Sep 18, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    I just wondered if those people have time to take photos.. did they help to reduce the animals?

    Lucky the State Law protects the rights of the animals as well. During the disaster, many hotels actually rejected owners with pets.. lucky the law requires those hotels to accept pets in terms of crisis or disasters, and actions will be met to those who do not comply.

    It is really sad to see people abandon their “family” during such trying periods. Animals and pets are also lives… their lives are equally precious. If you cannot take care of your pets during times of crisis.. you should not even have bothered adopting them.

    I am really glad a lot of people are vocal and the government took steps to ensure ALL lives are saved.

    • Edwin Tan on Sep 18, 2017 at 4:16 pm

      rescue* the animals. Not reduce. Sorry for the typo.

  19. Lim Han Nee on Sep 18, 2017 at 3:28 pm

    I am relieved to learn that authorities are taking action against those who leave their pets behind and tied up as they flee the hurricanes.Pets are part of the family and should be treated as family at all times.It is cruel to abandon pets who feel as equally distressed and traumatised as humans in the face of these disasters .Abandoning them and tying them up to face a cruel death is just beyond thought.

    In times like this, compassion must surely play a role if we have even an ounce of feeling in us. Rather than just leave them to die, we should have an instinct of care and kindness to want to take care of them so that they will not suffer unnecessarily nor more than they have to. Wherever we go for reasons of safety, they should be brought along with us.

  20. So Kin Hoe(KISG) on Sep 18, 2017 at 2:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the news with us about the animals that were being left behind during the hurricane evacuation. These animals were supposed to leave together and stay safely with their owners during the dire time of emergency but sadly, they were left behind. Further, some of the dogs were not even released to allow them to look for safer place on their own but being chained to a spot without having any chance of survival when the raining water started to rise. These incidents were totally considered as crimes committed by the respective owners who did not even recognize their pets as part of their family. If those owners do not want to take the responsibility to protect their pets regardless of any situation or condition arises, why the owners want to keep these animals as their pets in the very first place? Those animals that are being abandoned on their own in the middle of the storm, will definitely feel scared, sad and disappointed because animals have emotions like us too. No living being wants to be caught in that situation.

    I hope the authorities will effectively take actions against those people who have abandoned their pets during the hurricane so that it can be a lesson learnt to other pet owners for not repeating the same cruel and selfish act although it should not happen at all.

    May all the animals receive the equal rights and protection from any harm or danger.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  21. Ysng on Sep 18, 2017 at 10:15 am

    Future storm evacuations should include pet handling instruction. Failure to do so could be subject to animal abuse charges. People will be less likely to simply abandond their pets recklessly if they are made aware that it is a crime to do so.

    Colombia undertaker launches ghostly census

    The enterprising Betancur Funeral Home owner said he began the list a few weeks ago, sending “a team of four funeral parlour workers — properly attired in uniforms — to buildings” around Medellin, 245 kilometers (152 miles) northwest of the capital Bogota.

    “They’ve reported back with 215 ghosts…. Our video and still cameras have captured 23,” he said with pride.

    In 2006, a sculpture of coloured papercutting art – Jiangwa la ma Meixiang qi (Jiangwa leads the horse while Meixiang rides) stood at the newly built Xunyi County Central Cultural Square. This sculpture showcased the great artistic charm of the regional Xunyi style of papercutting. The handcrafted piece originated from a native rural woman, Ku Shulan, who was born and raised in Xunyi County.

    Video games are electronic games played across a variety of different platforms like computers and smart phones. Some research questions I will consider are, ‘What makes video games violent?’, ‘If VVGs are harmful, to what extent are they harmful?’ and ‘Should VVGs face more or less rigorous regulations?’ One of my assumptions is that it is difficult to control variables in order to, with validity, link VVGs effects with harm to society. Another assumption is that the studies into VVGs will primarily focus on any negative influences rather than any positives.

    I will argue that because of how widespread and deep rooted in pop culture VVGs have become, society will inevitably be affected in some way, and therefore some regulation should be strongly considered. Furthermore, we should cautiously approach regulating VVGs as this topic is known to be sensitive to conflicting parties such as parents and children. However, there is a large range of uncontrolled factors in many of the published research studies on VVGs, and it is difficult to generalise many of their conclusions, as harmful to society. Therefore I will argue for the importance of understanding context when we examine VVGs and their effects. My aim in this essay is to highlight some complexities of the arguments surrounding VVGs and attempt to give a broader picture, and educate against the polarising views of hostility and dismissal often shown towards these games.

    This article will be looking at the issue of whether or not violent video games (VVGs) are harmful to society. Read more at http://bit.ly/2JdmUBk

    Now in the European Union (EU), all cosmetic products that are tested on animals are banned! It hasn’t taken full effect, but it has been implemented. The previous ban that was implemented in 2009 to stop animal testing, was also re-enforced so that no animals are allowed to be used even if it is to test on complex health effects such as cancer.

    I am very glad to hear this news… every year, millions of animals die and suffer for being used to test cosmetic products. It is terrible that for beauty, we support products that are tested on animals. There are newer technology that can test these cosmetics without the need of animals. The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) and the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) did a great job in pressuring the whole European Union to ban animal testing for cosmetics even at the risk of jeopardizing the cosmetic industry.

    I hope that the ban on animal testing will be fully implemented to all countries and for the ban to not only cover cosmetics, but for many other products such as in the medical field.

    Countries which are part of the EU are:

    Austria
    Belgium
    Bulgaria
    Cyprus
    Czech Republic
    Denmark
    Estonia
    Finland
    France

    Freedom and Jeff Freedom and I have been together 11 years this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places. She’s my baby.

    When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vet’s office. From then on, I was always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off, and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in. I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also had to tube feed her for weeks.

    This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still couldn’t stand. It got to the point where the decision was made to euthanize her if she couldn’t stand in a week. You know you don’t want to cross that line between torture and rehab, and it looked like death was winning. She was going to be put down that Friday, and I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon. I didn’t want to go to the center that Thursday, because I couldn’t bear the thought of her being euthanized; but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was grinning from ear to ear. I went immediately back to her cage; and there she was, standing on her own, a big beautiful eagle. She was ready to live. I was just about in tears by then. That was a very good day.

    Wonderful Thailand

    We should go on pilgrimage to places where holy beings are known to reside or where great practitioners have engaged in profound practices. These places are vortexes of energy – an area where concentrated energy naturally converges on the planet’s surface.

    Say NO to Elephant-RIDING, say NO to using elephants for human entertainment in Circuises or Tourisms . . .

    Elephants that ”work” in Thailand and other tourist destinations have to go through a ritual called phajaan, or “crush”. It begins with the baby elephants (usually three to four years old) being taken from their mothers and placed in a small, wooden pen. To get them securely in the pen, these babies are beaten with bamboo, sticks with nails attached to the tip and bull hooks. Once in place, the crush lasts for roughly a week. During this time, they are beaten, bludgeoned, have hooks attached to their sensitive ears, and are deprived of food and water as well as sleep, all in the name of breaking ties with their mothers and becoming domesticated. While in the crush, through the infliction of pain, they learn how to accept riders, do circus tricks and paint. This is designed to break the animal’s spirit which it certainly achieves, often taking its sanity too.

    Used for centuries to domesticate wild elephants, this torture training method is still accepted as the only viable training method for elephant handlers and is used in almost every elephant attraction in Thailand.And, once they have their souls stomped out, they are simply vessels entertaining people. They are chained. They don’t eat enough.

    Like humans, elephants have the capability to form relationships and have emotions. But, not the elephants working for the tourists.

    People who visit Thailand — and other countries with elephant tourism — don’t realize the damage they cause these elephants when they support trekking camps, go to circuses or buy the paintings done by these creatures. Without knowing, they send a clear message to the elephant tourism industry that shows they support the torture these animals go through early in their life, as well as the horrific conditions they live in as cogs in the tourism wheel. Please never support this horrible practice, never ride an elephant. (Andres Grijalva)

    A female humpback whale had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.



    This is her story of giving gratitude.

    A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her… a very dangerous proposition.

    One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

    They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

    When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

    The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

    May you be so fortunate …

    To be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

    And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this documentary of the oracle. I know of people taking trance of local deities or gods in Taoist tradition but I didn’t know Tibetan Buddhism has specially trained people taking trance of Buddhas.

    Since we cannot see or communicate with Buddhas directly, oracle becomes the best medium to connect us with Buddhas. The advice given by oracle who is taking trance of an enlightened being is definitely for our benefit as this is the motivation of a Buddha.

    We are lucky to have Rinpoche who introduced to us the Dorje Shugden oracle. We can go to Kechara Forest Retreat to pay homage to Dorje Shugden oracle statue if we don’t have the merits to have an audience with the oracle in person.

    After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from:It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!

    Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. (http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/burlington_county_times_news/fda-some-chicken-may-have-small-amount-of-arsenic/article_0ecc5758-91f7-11e0-a572-001a4bcf6878.html)

    Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickens ended up in their meat. The fairy-tale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim… it’s just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

    But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (http://www.grist.org/food-safety/2011-06-08-fda-admits-supermarket-chickens-test-positive-for-arsenic). And what’s the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years? Pfizer, of course — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children.

    Animals in the wild have to continually contend with the expansion of human civilization. Certain wild animals have learned to coexist and even thrive in urban settings, pigeons and raccoons being obvious examples.

    Well, subway goers in Moscow are becoming familiar with stray dogs. These dogs have become accustomed to using the subway system as a means to travel across Moscow, even managing to catch a nap along the way. The dogs hop on in the morning and travel to the city center where they spend the day begging for scraps. At the end of the day they get back on the subway and travel to the suburbs where they sleep in relative safety.

    The dogs have become experts at judging the length of time they need to stay on the train, and seem to work together to ensure that they exit the subway at the right stop.

    Scientists believe this phenomenon began after the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, and Russia’s new capitalists moved industrial complexes from the city center to the suburbs.

    Dr Andrei Poiarkov, of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, said: “These complexes were used by homeless dogs as shelters, so the dogs had to move together with their houses. Because the best scavenging for food is in the city center, the dogs had to learn how to travel on the subway – to get to the center in the morning, then back home in the evening, just like people.”

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

It’s a good opportunity to know so many social heroes in different fields. Everyone is playing their important part in making this world a better place. From environment to animal extinction to hunger problems. We would like to applaud all the Kechara heroes for playing their part exceptionally well. ~ Vivian @ Kechara Soup Kitchen
