Animal Advocates is a 100% "green" organization in Los Angeles, California - Mary Cummins


Animal Advocates is a 100% "green" organization in Los Angeles, California - Mary Cummins



Animal Advocates rescues ill, injured and orphaned native wildlife for release back to the wild. Most animals that enter our facilities have been injured or left orphaned due to human activity. We rescue these animals while being a 100% "green" organization. Animal Advocates follows the three main principles to lessen our impact and the impact of others on the environment and animals. Reuse, Reduce, Recycle!

REUSE. Animal Advocates accepts used, damaged pet crates, supplies and cages that would otherwise end up in landfills. All of our large animal enclosures are made from used caging and fencing material. The roofs are made from used roofing materials. We reuse old sweatshirts by turning them into animal beds. We turn damaged dog houses and crates into nest boxes for wildlife.

REDUCE. Animal Advocates accepts unwanted food which reduces food dumped in land fills. We accept leftover food from catering companies. We also accept freezer burned meat, torn/open bags of food, over ripe fruit and vegetables, dropped flowers and other food items that would not be eaten by humans. Not only does the food not end up in landfills but it feeds hungry wildlife in our rehabilitation facility. The donor gets a tax write off and we reduce the amount of food we must buy.

RECYCLE. Animal Advocates is an almost paperless organization. What paper we do use is recycled, so are our ink cartridges. While we try to minimize packaging in what we buy, we make sure everything we do use is recyclable. Every single item that can be recycled is recycled. Any items that we can't find for free online are bought used. We also compost yard trimmings, herbivore poop and any leftover herbivore food which we use in our organic garden which provides food for the wildlife.

These are but a few of our many programs to reuse, reduce and recycle. We drive a gas saving Prius and most of our volunteers are vegan or vegetarian which helps the planet. Every time we reuse, reduce and recycle it prevents usable goods from ending up in landfills, helps the community, environment and saves animals' lives. Because we are a non-profit recognized by the IRS the donor also gets a tax deductible receipt. If you'd like to donate to our organization, please, visit our website or Facebook page.

Blaming cats for bird deaths won't save birds. Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates


Blaming cats for bird deaths won't save birds. Neither will blaming humans. We all must work together.

Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

This is a particularly controversial and heated subject. Some bird, wildlife, environment organizations such as American Bird Conservancy, Audubon would like cats to stay indoors. They state cats kill some birds and this is true. It is also true that humans, wildlife, dogs, other birds also kill birds. Those are the facts.

Cat organizations for some reason think bird, wildlife, environment organizations want to kill all cats. That is blatantly false. I am pro bird, cat, dog, wildlife and environment. I don't want to kill any animal. I'm starting to think this is propaganda so some cat people can dump cats outside and feed them. This debate has become a big "bird people verses cat people" battle when it shouldn't be. We are all pro-animal. Let's first review some facts.

I just received this flyer below in Facebook. It's from Alley Cat Allies. Let me first correct some misinformation. They state "cats have been living outside alongside humans for 10,000 years as a natural part of the ecosystem." This is absolutely false. 

The domestic cat was bred by humans. They are believed to have been descended from a small African wild cat approximately 10,000 years ago. Humans then continued to breed cats for tameness and various physical features. Humans spread the domestic cat all over the entire world. 

"Domestic cats are a major predator of wildlife in the United States killing an estimated 1.4–3.7 billion birds and 6.9–20.7 billion mammals annually. The bulk of the predation the United States is done by 80 million feral and stray cats." Outdoor cats are killing birds and mammals. Many research studies have been done which prove this beyond a shadow of a doubt. As a wildlife rehabilitator we get in many birds and small mammals that have been injured or killed by cats and dogs though mainly cats.  

For some reason cat people think bird, wildlife, environment people want ALL cats killed. That is most certainly false. They actually just want domestic cats to be kept enclosed in a home or sanctuary so they can't kill birds, wildlife or negatively affect the environment. They'd also like to see the outdoor population of feral and tame domestic cats to be reduced over time. 

Domestic cat proponents developed TNR programs to try to control the cat populations. The theory behind the Trap Neuter and Return theory is if you spay and neuter all cats in a colony, their population should be reduced to zero within one generation or approximately seven years. They state the current cats would not allow new cats into the colony. This would be fantastic if it actually worked but it doesn't. TNR only works in a vacuum. Many research studies have shown it does not work in the real world. The problem is implementation.

A proper TNR colony would be a group of cats located away from wildlife areas or sensitive ecosystems and waterways. The colony should be hidden so the public cannot see it. If people see the colony, they will dump un-neutered pets and the population will increase. ALL cats must be spayed and neutered. This is sometimes impossible as some cats are trap shy. The caretaker must clean feces and urine so as not to cause a nuisance. They also must not leave food. They should feed once a day for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes they must remove all food or wildlife will be attracted to the food and cause a nuisance besides spreading disease. All cats must be properly microchipped, vaccinated and receive proper veterinary care. These things don't happen in the real world.

I am frequently called to failed TNR colonies. The caretakers don't neuter all animals due to cost. They instead only feed them. The cat population has increased. Feces, fleas and unwanted wildlife create a public nuisance. Cats need veterinary care and are dying from disease. They are killing birds and wildlife, spreading disease to wildlife. This causes members of the public to petition their city to trap, remove, kill the cats. And this is when the cat people yell foul and go running to politicians with their misinformation. 

TNR does not work in the real world. The only "studies" were anecdotal and written by the colony caretaker. What then is the solution to cat overpopulations and the increased demise of birds and wildlife? Bird, wildlife, environment organizations would like all domestic cats to be kept indoors or enclosed. This is also better for the cat as they are protected from predators, cars, mean people, disease and fights. That is of course impossible to do in large numbers at the moment. A better sterilization method that could permanently sterilize all cats via an oral dose would be ideal. We are getting closer to that every day. I'm sure the cat people also want to humanely reduce the cat population. Cats are being killed in the shelters by the millions every year. Unwanted outdoor cats are being poisoned or shot.

The flyer I received said go to http://www.alleycat.org/SaveTheBirds to learn how to save the birds. Flyer also said "blaming cats won't save the birds. If we want to change the statistics, we have to change our actions." I went to the page and there were no suggestions to solve the problems. It just said that humans kill birds. Humans, wildlife, cats, dogs, other birds ALL kill birds. Bird people aren't asking to kill cats. I hope cat people aren't asking to kill humans. We all must work to solve the problem. I have some suggestions to calm the bird vs cat war. 

Cat people must do everything they can to do a better job with TNR. They should also focus on spay and neuter for all cats. Perhaps they can find a way to build some inexpensive cat sanctuaries and make it easier for people to have cat sanctuaries. More research needs to be done on a one dose permanent sterilant and ways to keep cats from killing birds and wildlife. 

Dog people who have dogs that kill birds and wildlife should not leave dogs unattended outside. If that is not possible, they should make sure they don't have a bird feeder or any plants that birds like to eat. They should not have a bird bath either. They should make sure to secure trash cans, pick up dropped fruit so skunks, opossums, raccoons won't enter their yard. Dogs should be walked on a leash. 

Bird people should continue to find ways to decrease the number of birds killed every year. They have made a glass that birds can see so they won't fly into it and die. They are monitoring pesticides, human development and are working to improve wind power turbines. Everyone is working on climate issues. 

If cat people think that "blaming cats won't save birds," well, blaming humans also won't save birds. Bird, cat, dog, wildlife people must all work on this project together. Bird and cat people would both be happy to humanely reduce the number of cats and outdoor cats. We are on the same team and need to stop the fighting. The fighting is impeding progress.

Bald "chupacabra" squirrels, raccoons, foxes and coyotes. Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates


Bald "chupacabra" squirrels, raccoons, foxes and coyotes. Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates

UPDATE: The finders of the bald raccoon have decided to send the body for taxidermy. They will stuff him and put him on their mantle. Crazy people.

I'm sure you've all heard about the story of the "chupacabra" found in Texas. It is obviously a raccoon with either manage or genetic permanent lack of fur. We here at Animal Advocates frequently get in bald animals such as coyotes, foxes, bobcats, squirrels, opossums and raccoons. All of the bald animals we've taken in were treated, grew back their fur and were released.

Recently I wrote an article about wildlife with manage with photos here.

http://animaladvocateswildliferehabilitation.blogspot.com/2014/03/coyotes-foxes-bobcats-with-mange-in.html

Here is a video I took of a coyote with mange. He's not a chupacabra. This is in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California.



Here is a photo of a raccoon with no fur. It's a raccoon.

Chupacabra hairless bald raccoon mary cummins animal advocates




"Jackie Stock, the woman who found the animal which resembles a raccoon with mange tells TMZ ... she was advised to euthanize the animal because it was suffering.

Stock said after video of the creature went wide Thursday ... PETA started sending her and her husband messages, saying they were upset by the fact that the animal was in captivity and not receiving proper treatment.

She was also told if the animal really was a Chupacabra, it would have sucked the blood out of the goats next door before its capture.  Stock was advised it was most likely a raccoon with mange that was in pain.

Stock adds the animal was never examined or tested to specifically identify it.

She took it to the shelter and was told "it went to sleep very peacefully," adding, "I had gotten attached.  I was calling him Chupie.  He will be missed."

Legally she had to turn the animal over to a wildlife rehabilitator within 48 hours. She didn't. She wanted to keep it as a pet. She said someone told her the animals was suffering in pain because of lack of fur. The only suffering it experienced was being kept in a tiny trap. You can't keep an animal in a trap over 24 hours. She says she took it to the animal shelter and they euthanized it. It's hard to believe her story.

If you find a bald wild animal, take it to a wildlife rehabilitator.
