RICHARD BELZER'S DOG IS AN OCTOMOM

340x.belzercutjpg
Animal activist Richard Belzer, who promotes the adoption of homeless pets and has adopted two dogs of his own, has been accused of being an irresponsible dog owner. His female border collie mix Django was not spayed and according to sources in animal activism, he allowed her to mate with another dog in Central Park. She gave birth to eight puppies recently and now he has to scramble to find homes for them. Keep in mind that thousands of shelter dogs are killed every year because they cannot find homes. His fellow animal lovers are calling the “Law & Order” star a hypocrite and WORSE…

    He AND that other dog owner are irresponsible! Not only does spaying and neutering cut down on unwanted puppies and kittens, it is also better for the health of dogs and cats. Non-neutered and non-spayed dogs and cats are subject to various cancers. This guys is a PUTZ.

    Yeah even Peta kills the dogs that are given to them because they don’t want to SPEND the Millions they receive, on caring for them. They’d rather use some of that change on picket signs and t-shirts.

    This news is meant to distract America from the fact that UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown used the term ‘New World Order’ during his closing remarks at the G20 Summit today.

    PeTA are a bunch of perverts but Belzer is a total douche for not spaying his dog. Just because he can’t produce sperm other males can and his eight pups are the unfortunate result.

    I was told he bought that dog, hypocrite. He should be forced to find homes eight dogs that are about to die in the shelter this week in addition to finding homes for his eight puppies. What a irresponsible hypocrite! How could you be in North Shore Animal Campaign against Pet overpopulation and pro-adoption and make a bone head move like this. SHAME ON YOU RICHARD BELZER.

    Thank you Janet, for posting this! But it’s 5 MILLION, not just thousands of homeless pets who are killed in shelters every year and Richard Belzer is contributing to this killing by being so irresponsible and thoughtless. He should have had his dog spayed, like every intelligent, educated person does. This is really white trash behavior. Each dog he must scramble to find homes for is taking away a second chance at life for a dog in the shelter.
    It truly is hypocritical for him to indulge himself by bringing even more dogs into the world when he touts himself as an animal welfare advocate. I heard North Shore Animal League is severing all ties to him over this PR fiasco. They work very hard bringing America’s attention to the plight of homeless animals and the importance of spaying and neutering your pets to combat the crisis of pet overpopulation.
    There simply are not enough homes for all the dogs who are killed. Having a litter right now during this time of hardship, when so many people are being forced to give up their animals is plain wrong. The shelters are full. He should know better.

    This guy will come and be filmed with his opinion of puppy mills and backyard breeders and then he does what they do. Come on if you want to be a spokesperson for the cause you cannot do what you are fighting against.
    It goes to show he is using the cause to get publicity…just using the plight of the animals so that his celebrity is still in the public eye.
    Disgusting! The poor animals take abuse from people from so all directions. The poor animals are exploited even from some of the people that SAY they care.

    And what rescue org would adopt out a dog without neutering or spaying? Not one. The adoption story is fishy, Detective Shmunch!

    He bought the Octomom dog it is not adopted he only has one rescued dog, he needs to go to the bump room at the shelter immediately and see what his stupid actions cause.

    In an era where advocacy for animals is under the scrutiny of every person out there, for Belzer to do something like this is a damaging blow to the credibility of true animal advocates and rescue groups everywhere. 8 puppies… let’s do the math, if there are 4 dogs euthanized for every one dog born, there are 32 dogs that are dead. Congrats! Are you going to be in a shelter when one of those pups are put down, or maybe all of them? No… you will continue to be an utter disappointment to not only the people that once counted you as an ally, but also to the dogs that you have needlessly brought into this world, and the ones that left it prematurely.

    So true, Walt. There are piles of dead dogs every day thrown into the garbage outside the shelter in NY. Doesn’t he KNOW that? What was he thinking?

    THis is horrifying. He makes me sick. There is nothing worse than a total hypocrite who marches outside of pet stores vowing to shut them down for promoting irresponsible breeding practices, then he lets his own dog have a litter. Wow.

    Geez people. I am an advocate of suicide prevention…of people staying alive. No one gets themelves into an uproar that every 16 minutes a person takes his/her own life. Let’s get some perspective here. Animals are so wonderful and deserve our attention, but please focus for a moment on mental illness and people who are suffering. Be kind to people! (Richard Belzer made a mistake with his dog, get over it.)

    To Kmowone: some people SHOULD commit suicide. Like dick Cheney and Bush. But that’s irrelevant. Mr. Belzer didn’t make a “mistake” as you call it, the dog wasn’t spayed. Why don’t you mouth off on a suicide website or better yet, a mental illness one?
    Geez is right. Take your own advice and focus for a moment. If you can.

    Richard Belzer and his wife need to know that by not spaying their dog and allowing her to have a litter of 8 puppies, they just signed the death sentence for 8 rescue dogs who are sitting in cages in shelters right now, and who will be taken to the gas chamber tomorrow. Having met Richard at our Posh Puppy protest, and hearing him explain to the public on the video we made that day, that adoption is the way to go, I”m dumbfounded as to why he and his wife did this. I hope after reading all these comments they will try to remedy the situation in some way, although I don’t know how that can be done. Maybe he can publicly acknowledge that they made a bad decision and to discourage people from following their terrible example.

    I am an animal rights person but what I really hate is the automatic attacking and denigrating of people without knowing the entire story. Maybe his dog can’t tolerate anesthesia or some other reason for not having been spayed. Maybe he is usually a very responsible owner who was unaware the dog was in heat due to a silent heat which can often happen. while I am dismayed that there are yet more pups to find homes for, I am much more dismayed at the disgusting attitude that people are spewing towards a very vocal advocate for adoption. This is why I am not a member of PETA (but I support the HSUS).. most members are far too fundamental in thought and too quick to inflict character damage.

    Beth,
    Even if the dog couldn’t tolerate an operation, have you ever heard of a leash? If you are an “animal rights person” as you say you are, then why are you defending having pups and not spaying or neutering? Maybe you should read some of the HSUS (you support them, right?) reading materials, brochures, web site, etc. Or maybe you are having a silent heat yourself and can’t think straight.

  21. By BethNYC

    There you go insulting. Thank you for making my point. Of course I support and encourage s/n at every chance I get. I also understand and respect that there are people who are actually responsible intact dog owners. If he didn’t know the dog was in heat then he wouldn’t have to be concerned about the leash. But as we don’t know the true story and this is all hearsay, I choose not to denigrate someone who speaks out and gives his time for animals. It isn’t against the law to not s/n and the last I checked this was still a choice in this country. You’re are a fundamentalist and I don’t support fundamentalists of any kind.

    Belzer has been a great proponent of adoption and shelter animals. I would like to hear his side before crucifying him. Like BETHNYC said, perhaps there is a reason the dog was not spayed/neutered.
    And fyi, dogs are allowed off-leash in Central Park before 9am and after 8pm so he was doing nothing wrong there.
    As one who fosters homeless animals, it is nothing short of tragic to hear a litter of dogs has been born in a city inundated with homeless animals. But Ricahrd Belzer has been very good to the homeless animal community – I must give him the benefit of the doubt before maligning him.

    he goes to the protests and get his ass on t.v. he just wanted some good press obviously, a REAL animal activist would never of let thisi happen or if it did happen would of gotten the dog spayed immediately after discovering the dog was pregnant, THERE IS NO EXCUSE!!!!!!! i will not watch his show anymore…
    BOYCOTT LAW AND ORDER!!!!!!!!!! what an ass…

    Ummm…where does it say he got the dog from a rescue? Want an intact dog from a shelter? Come to Los Angeles and get one from the “largest adoption agency in the country”~(recently fired former General Manager Ed Boks).

    Most of the dogs from the L.A. shelters come in healthy and immediately get sick due to poor kennel procedures. In fact, the second largest city in America has a shelter system with absolutely no operations or procedures manual. Doubt me? Call them and ask. This results in hundreds (more?) of animals being adopted and sent to their new homes without being spayed or neutered. You can’t put a dog with a respiratory infection under anesthesia for surgery, so the spay/neuter is “deferred.” There is no system in place to follow up to see if you actually altered the animal…so come and get your breeding stock, right here in L.A.!

    Belz, you’re an idiot. The last time I saw you was parked on the sidewalk in front of Posh Puppy Mill(formerly of Beverly Hills)who were run out of business by activists like you and Carole Davis. Yep. There you were protesting puppy mills and advocating for adopting — not buying. You fooled me.

    So you let your dog run around Central Park without a leash? Maybe you were in a dog park. Then you saw a dog with balls mount your fertile female and let them at it. While I think there will be no problem handing off 8 celebrity puppies, here’s what I’d like to see, Belzer:

    The sterilization certificates for each and every one of those puppies! You’re going to track these dogs and show us the proof that you want to redeem yourself with the animal community by taking responsibility for your idiocy, right?

    Maybe this was on purpose. Maybe Belzer wants off the hundreds of mailing lists. Maybe he is short of cash and needed to become a fire escape breeder to make ends meet.

    Or maybe he’s just a hypocritcal idiot. You pick.

    Wow. I can’t believe we protested outside of Posh Puppy in Beverly Hills with that jackass. Way to practice what you preach, Belzer. I’m embarrassed.

    “He should be forced to find homes eight dogs that are about to die in the shelter this week in addition to finding homes for his eight puppies.”
    I think that is an excellent idea, Harry!

    how does anyone know he let his dog off leash.. maybe someone else let their male off and that dog made a bee line for Belzer’s dog.. if they got stuck, nothing you can do about that. As for aborting, not everyone will do that… Everyone is posting as if they know exactly what happened and are throwing a human being under the bus for hearsay. what happened to innocent until proven guilty. all you know is the titillating little piece above and the most disgusting venom comes spewing. He has been extraordinarily supportive of the animal community. where is the compassion or benefit of the doubt for someone who has worked hard for the same goals as we all have (i am involved in a small breed rescue and sometime foster home when possible and I pay for s/n for people who are unable to where possible) I hope none of you ever makes a mistake. don’t know how you’d live with yourself.

    What an IRRESPONSIBLE jerk! Who doesn’t have their animals FIXED immediately? To allow an animal to mate and CREATE MORE ANIMALS? To claim that he promotes animal welfare? What a comic boob!! He PRETENDED to be an animal welfare advocate, but is actually a publicity HOUND! An insincere JERK!

    This guy is either an a-hole of epic proportions, or he is merely tolerating his c*nt of a wife who also wears FUR and allows her dog to kill many cats. If it’s all her, she needs to be dumped as unceremoniously as the animals at the shelter, and/or Belzer needs to grow a pair.

    What about the female dog? Why did it’s owner take her to the park when it was in heat? Why hadn’t she been “fixed”. How was Belzer to know a dog in heat would be where he was walking his dog?

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
