Positivity Vs Negativity...

 

HI EVERYONE,

I AM THE ADMINISTRATOR OF THIS PAGE, ANIMAL LOVERS ARUBA. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO REMIND YOU ALL THAT THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO THE ANIMALS OF ARUBA. IT IS A PLACE FOR POSITIVITY AND NOT NEGATIVE COMMENTS. WE WILL NOT TOLERATE CYBER BULLYING OR DEROGATORY COMMENTS. THIS JUST DETRACTS AWAY FROM WHAT OUR COMMON GOAL ON THIS PAGE IS... RAISING AWARENESS AND FINDING A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM WE ARE FACING IN ARUBA REGARDING OUR ANIMALS. WE APPRECIATE THAT EVERYONE HAS AN OPINION BUT WE DO NOT APPRECIATE IT WHEN THAT OPINION IS MEANT TO HURT OR HARM SOMEONE ELSE. THIS IS NEGATIVE ENERGY THAT WE CAN ALL DO WITHOUT. THERE ARE MANY MANY MANY ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANISATIONS WORKING TIRELESSLY EACH DAY ON THE ISLAND TO SAVE AND RESCUE THE ANIMALS. THESE AMAZING SELFLESS HUMAN BEINGS, REGARDLESS OF WHICH ORGANISATION THEY VOLUNTEER WITH, SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE THE TIME NOR ENERGY TO RESPOND AND DEAL WITH THE COMMENTS FROM A MINORITY GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO APPEAR TO BE ON SOME KIND OF “MISSION” TO RUIN THE REPUTATION AND DESTROY THEIR GOOD WORK. 

 

5 + 4 = 9   

6 + 3 = 9   

8 + 1 = 9

YOU SEE WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT METHODS OF COMING UP WITH THE SAME ANSWER AND THIS APPLIES TO EACH RESCUE ORGANIZATION IN ARUBA. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT ONE IS RIGHT AND ONE IS WRONG. WE ALL JUST HAVE A DIFFERENT WAY OF REACHING THE SAME GOAL.

WHICH IS TO ERADICATE THE OVER-POPULATION OF DOGS IN ARUBA. EDUCATE THE PEOPLE ON ANIMAL WELFARE AND TO TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO BE RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERS AND THE BENEFITS OF A SPAY AND NEUTER PROGRAM ETC. 

 

WE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ALREADY A FACEBOOK PAGE “DEDICATED” TO CRITIZING, BULLYING AND BAD-MOUTHING SOME OF THE RESCUE ORGANISATIONS IN ARUBA... SO MY SUGGESTION IS THAT YOU KEEP THOSE NEGATIVE COMMENTS ON THAT PAGE AND NOT ON ANIMAL LOVERS ARUBA FACEBOOK PAGE. 

IT IS TIME CONSUMING TO MODERATE THE GOOD, POSITIVE AND HAPPY COMMENTS THAT WE RECEIVE EACH DAY ON THIS PAGE... WE CERTAINLY DO NOT HAVE THE TIME TO MODERATE THE NEGATIVE ONES. 

AND IF YOU ARE EXPECTING A RESPONSE FROM THE ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANISATIONS THEN YOU PROBABLY WILL NOT GET ONE.... WHY?.... BECAUSE THEY ARE BUSY.... RESCUING THE ANIMALS IN ARUBA... TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS CRAZY WORLD WE LIVE IN... TRYING TO BE A VOICE FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES... TRYING TO CHANGE ARUBA, ONE ANIMAL AT A TIME. 

 

IF YOU SUPPORT A PARTICULAR ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANISATION THEN PLEASE CONTINUE TO DO SO... YOUR SUPPORT IS ALWAYS MUCH NEEDED AND DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. HAVING SAID THAT, USE YOUR POSITIVE EVERGY FOR THEM AND NOT YOUR NEGATIVE ENERGY AGAINST THOSE RESCUE GROUPS THAT YOU DO NOT SUPPORT. IT REALLY DOES NOT HELP THE ANIMALS ONE BIT. HONESTLY, IT REALLY DOESN’T.

WE ARE ALL ADULTS... AND BULLYING IS CHILDISH BEHAVIOUR THAT IS REALLY NOT NECESSARY AND MOST DEFINITELY NOT WELCOMED HERE. 

 

IT IS A FACT THAT THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT RESCUE GROUPS ON THIS ISLAND... EACH ONE WITH IT’S OWN STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES, SPECIALISING IN DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF SAVING THE ANIMALS. SOME RESCUE CATS, SOME RESCUE DOGS, SOME ADOPT THEM LOCALLY ON THE ISLAND, SOME ADOPT THEM OVERSEAS OFF THE ISLAND... ULTIMATELY THEY ARE ALL WORKING TOWARDS THE SAME COMMON GOAL. THAT DOES NOT MEAN ONE IS RIGHT AND ONE IS WRONG. THE FACT THAT THERE ARE SO MANY SMALL GROUPS OF WONDERFUL, KIND AND CARING ANIMAL LOVERS STRIVING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ARUBA SHOULD BE A FACT THAT IS WELCOMED WITH OPEN ARMS... THIS TINY ISLAND HAS A MASSIVE CRISIS THAT CANNOT BE TACKLED BY ONE SMALL TEAM OF HUMANS ALONE.... IT NEEDS AN ARMY OF PEOPLE…. 

 

A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THIS IS WHEN ANIMAL BALANCE CAME TO ARUBA TO DO OPERATION CUNUCU... A MASS SPAY AND NEUTER CAMPAIGN... IF YOU HAPPENED TO BE THERE THEN YOU WOULD OF SEEN THAT MANY OF THE VARIOUS ORGANISATIONS WERE THERE.... WORKING TOGETHER.... AS ONE TEAM!!!!! 

AND LOOK AT WHAT A SUCCESS THAT WAS.... IT WAS A HUGE MILESTONE FOR THE ANIMALS OF ARUBA.

ALMOST 400 DOGS FROM THE DUMP AND THE STREETS WERE STERILISED IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK.

!!!WOW!!!

NOW THAT IS CERTAINLY “TEAM WORK MAKING THE DREAM WORK”.

LET US ALL KEEP THIS IN MIND.... THE ANIMALS... THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT! LET’S KEEP OUR COMMENTS, OPINIONS AND ENERGY POSITIVE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES OF OUR ANIMALS HERE IN ARUBA.
