|Response from Brian Batista Photography to the Huffington Post concerning the "Journey Home" ad that web hosting company GoDaddy planned to air during Super Bowl Sunday, February 1st, 2015...|
|"I'm almost certain that I will move my websites and services to another provider," said Nashville-based photographer Brian Batista. "As a pet photographer and huge rescue advocate I cannot justify my business being hosted by a company like GoDaddy that would conceive of this type of marketing. The lack of respect for Buddy in the ad is what disturbs me the most, millions of pets die every year because of that simple fact."|
|Tattoos & Rescues alumni Steffen Baldwin of the Animal Cruelty Task Force of Ohio had this to say about the ad...|
"Every year animal are euthanized across America, over 7 million each year because lifetime commitments are seen as disposable commodities, able to be bought, traded and sold like an X Box," says Baldwin.
|"The callous, careless and disposable way these animals are portrayed in the GoDaddy commercial shows everything that's wrong with the puppy industry in less than 60 seconds and minus the rows and rows of stacked cages on top of stacked cages and breeding dogs that are unable to walk on grass after living a life in a crate being bred until they no longer serve a useful purpose to the owner."|
