Five acres of land at Keystone Lake under the Oklahoma skies has been donated to all Pet Owners. Five acres in the very center of the United States given to us; a home to focus on the very center of the problem.
Pet Food has killed and sickened countless thousands of Pets over the past years.
They all mattered to someone.
Earlier, we blogged about the Menu Foods debacle which sickened and killed thousands of dogs and cats.
From the 2007 melamine pet food recall alone, some estimates are as high as 300,000 U.S. and Canadian pets became sick, died, or are still fighting kidney disease. Countless thousands more pets have become sick from recalls or silent recalls of tainted pet food since.
No laws have changed, no lawsuits have been settled, none responsible have been jailed. No one has told us how many died or remains sick; no one tells us how many continue to become sick and/or die from new recalls. Today, with numerous silent recalls (pet foods being removed from store shelves without an official public recall) we barely even know the partial truth of pet food risks. Many pet foods continue to import inferior ingredients, continue to violate Federal Food Safety Laws, continue killing and sickening pets. Pet Owners have written letters to Congress, begged pet loving Celebrities, pleaded with Federal Officials for change. Time and time again we’ve been ignored.
One pet family decided enough was enough.
If the FDA, Congress, and irresponsible Pet Food Companies wanted to continue to turn a blind eye to the cold truth that hundreds of thousands of pets have become sick and/or died and continue to become sick and die because of a pet food, this family was going to make sure not one pet would ever be forgotten; nor why they died.
Vindication is ours. As you read this Vindication is being sculpted by the donors into flowering gardens with handmade stones lining the cascading pathways. Careful selections of flowers are being chosen; flowers will bloom both day and night. At the very front of our land will be 16 handmade stones circled into the pathway beginning. These 16 stones signify the 16 “official” pets that died at Menu Foods testing laboratory long before the deadliest recall in world history was announced.
From the Remembered 16 Circle will be pathways that cascade over our land. Each stone lining each pathway will be handmade and personalized with the name of a pet killed or sickened by pet food. Each innocent victim will be remembered. Thousands of pets – each with their own personalized pathway stone will be honored here.
These compassionate and generous people understood that we needed to be unified on solid ground. They understood that no one has ever counted the dead and sick pets; the powerful want this information to be kept silent. As well, they understood that the numbers – the massive numbers of pets that pet food has destroyed – should be known to all. Each singular pet death or illness destroyed a family, yet each singular pet death or illness was dismissed by those responsible. Individually these crushed families were/are powerless to protect further pets. The Vindication project is gathering the names, the thousands and thousands of pets sickened or killed by a pet food. Then, the serious reality will be undeniable to all concerned. Because of Vindication, the power will be given to the Pets.
