Yankee boss Randy Levine quits ASPCA

[bloggers note:What took so long?!?]

The ASPCA has been rocked by a series of high-profile board resignations, including Yankees president Randy Levine, after internal disagreements over the direction of the historic humane society.

Directors of American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, founded in 1866, started an exodus because they believe some in the organization are “more focused on social standing than the animals.”

We’re told that board members and longtime animal-welfare advocates who quit recently include Levine, Post columnist Cindy Adams and Marsha Perelman, a former ASPCA board chairman.

Page Six reported that the ASPCA had struggled to find a new president to replace outgoing leader Ed Sayres — despite the $555,824-a-year salary for the job.

A source told us, “The board was unable to settle on a new president for months, because the business people on the board could not agree with others who appeared to be more concerned about what they’ll wear to the annual Bergh Ball,” the group’s annual gala.

On May 2, the ASPCA announced that its senior vice president Matthew Bershadker would take over as president and CEO, which appears to have coincided with some of the board members’ resignations, Perelman had resigned earlier, we’re told.

Levine confirmed his departure and said in a statement, “I love animals, and I remain completely committed to helping animals, but I believe it was time for me to do it through a different vehicle or organization.”

Adams told us, “I love animals, and if it comes to discussing the ASPCA, I will let my dogs do the barking.”

An ASPCA rep said of the departures, “We are grateful for their service and many contributions to the ASPCA over the years,” adding, “The ASPCA’s board unanimously elected Mr. Bershadker, who has led the animal welfare group’s anti-cruelty work around the country . . . His outstanding record speaks for itself.”


Helping animals is not just about cruelty and certainly not about Animal Rights or attacking circuses throughout this country…I realize what the ASPCA stands for but setting people up is NOT exactly preventing anything-it’s illegal…they knew it and participated…as they have in others and just a matter of time for all their defenses to crumble…I believe it’s better to face the music than to continue  when they knew they were wrong so at least I’ll give them that. Way back when…the ASPCA did not start out to do harm but was established for Animal Welfare and NOT what it has become…an Animal Rights Extremists organization -Bye bye Ed Sayres-You will NOT be missed!!! Now we watch to see what the future holds for this weakened organization…

The same applies to HSUS however, it appears that Pacelle will never admit his bad or the bad perpetuated by this Animal Rights Extremists organization…so it seems…


“Once Upon a Time” the Humane Society of the United States was organized for a noble purpose. However, in recent years the Humane Society of the U.S. appears to have lost its way, and has actively demonized so many decent and caring individuals who have anything to do with Animals. Consequently, the fundamental Principles and Rights of Humans that our Forefathers set out in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitutionare being desecrated by those who believe the Rights of Animals are greater than the Rights of Humans. And yet, a review of the words set out in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution reveals no mention of “Animal Rights.”

Human Rights are sacrosanct, as well they should be, and no person and no organization have an absolute right to desecrate the God-Given Rights of Humans. That is why I believe that all who believe in the Guiding Principles of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution need to work in concert to “Right the Unrightable Wrongs” of the Humane Society of the U.S.

Each of us represents the “Power of One.” And each of us has the “Power” to communicate with others, and to share with others how best to “Right the Unrightable Wrongs” of the Humane Society of the U. S. If each of us exercises the “Power of One,” the multiplier effect of our cumulative actions will become an insurmountable force that will ensure that our God-Given Rights are once again restored, revered and protected. Let us all work together as “One” in order to restore the integrity of our Rights as so eloquently summarized by the immortal words of “One Nation, Under God!”

    “Forbes Magazine just published “15 Key Insights From 2011 From 15 Key Thinkers And Writers.” Here’s insight number 8:
    Most people assume that the ASPCA, one of the largest and most well-funded animal-rights groups in the world, who profess to prevent cruelty to animals, would be all for advocating that homeless cats and dogs not be killed at animal shelters. Not so. A big eye opener: The ASPCA has actively fought to prevent cities from establishing no-kill shelters and aggressively fights bills proposed in local city councils that aim to reduce the number of innocent animals being killed. Another shocker? PETA, does too. The true protectors of animals are not the bureaucracy-rich animal rights organizations, but smaller groups and individuals. Nathan Winograd, author of Redemption, and Stanford-law-educated ex-criminal prosecutor and corporate attorney, is the founder of a growing no-kill-shelter movement—and gets my vote for most important intellectual this year. His no-kill actions challenge the status quo by thinking beyond the box. He’s developed a creative and realistic plan that many cities are successfully using to save most of their homeless animals. New York City’s ACC, who murders hundreds of cats and dogs each week needs to reform and implement his ideas.”
