I am DONE with PETA

I will start by saying that none of this changes my stance on veg*nism. I am still a very passionate vegetarian. I have just learned that PETA has been euthanizing their excess shelter animals and throwing them away in garbage bags. Apparently since 1998, 90% of the animals that have come in to the shelter have been killed.

As an animal rights activist, I am literally sickened at learning of these events. PETA is the face of animal rights, and they are two faced, hypocritical bastards.

Taken from this website:

"A PETA spokeswoman, Kathy Guillermo, said PETA never wanted to get into the business of euthanizing animals. But she said the group couldn't ignore the horrible conditions in animal shelters around Norfolk and in northeastern North Carolina. The group now euthanizes thousands of animals a year.
"Euthanasia is a better alternative to sitting in a stinking pound," Guillermo said."

I disagree with their logic. If they had such an abundance of animals, they needed to do a better job having them adopted rather than killing them. How is it that there are great organizations like that can take in all of these animals and not kill any? They advertise and they run specials and they do EVERYTHING they can to get their animals adopted.

I am so horribly horribly saddened and appalled. PETA will never receive my support again.

Taken from this webpage:

"One Norfolk television station aired a heartbreaking interview with the manager of the supermarket whose dumpster became an impromptu pet cemetery. "They just slung the doors [open] and started throwing dogs ... beautiful cats. I saw a [dead] beagle last week that was pregnant ... last week it was 23 or 24 dogs ... it's happened to us nine times ... they drove straight from there, straight here, and disposed of the dogs in 30 seconds."

Please consider getting your next pet from a no kill animal shelter.

Great post, Dani. Yeah, it's just astounding to me that they could do such a thing and then go out and sell animal rights! Disgusting. Well, I'm sure there are organizations out there that are truly animal friendly. A shame, though, b/c I loved PETA's ad campaigns and stickers! Great marketing, bad morals. :-(

Shelters euthanize 6-8 million dogs and cats every year. Some are "adoptable" but a lot aren't. Working in open admission shelters (where no animals are turned away) is something that opens your eyes to the plight of animals. In many situations euthanizing is the most kind thing to do and is protecting the rights of all dogs and cats by not leaving them in shelters for months at a time. Let's face it there are more animals than their are good homes. By euthanizing we are releasing these animals from a world that doesn't want them and a world where they suffer more than we know. Let's support groups like PETA who have to do society's dirty work and leave our own emotions at the door. We are care about animals for the quality of their lives not to keep a clear conscience. Lets remember these were animals who were going to die horrible deaths in gas boxes and instead were euthanized in the most humane way possible. Look on PETA's website to learn more. Animal rights is not always doing fun things, sometimes it's doing things like euthanizing animals, but it is ALWAYS about doing what is best for the animals.

Why would this surprise you. Peta is NOT an animal rights organization. They are an animal HATE GROUP. Peta is against pet ownership. That doctrine is in their corporate objectives. PETA is not an animal rescue organization. These people want seperation between man and animal totally. NO PETS, NO ZOO's no circuses, no aquariums, no interaction with animals of any kind.
They are not just against hunting, fishing and animal farming. They (Peta) are determined to end pet ownership in our lifetime.
Have you seen the ridiculous laws that PETA and HSUS have been sponsoring in communities like Louisville, Kentucky? The laws are designed to make pet ownership end. ALL animals must be spayed or neutered. Hunting Dogs can not leave the county unless they get NEW shots each time they come back. Animals that harrass other animals can be confiscated on the spot and must be spayed or neutered to get them back. Harrassing includes a dog chasing or BARKING at a squirrel.
DO YOU NOT GET IT.. HSUS and PETA are not your friends.. They want your pets taken away from you and by killing pets they END the cycle of pet ownership.

There's obviously a large spectrum of thought on this topic. What I'll say is this-

I believe that most of these pets ARE in fact adoptable. As a matter of fact, after writing this blog, I went and adopted a dog this weekend. She had been at the shelter longer than any of the other animals there, and she had only been there 1 1/2 months. Every being has the will to live, (most times) regardless of the circumstance.

As for the last post, apparently I DIDN'T GET IT. I took PETA for face value when I became an animal rights activist. I thought they existed to help others learn to respect animals. Yes, I was wrong. I apologize for not being perfect, but I do what I can.

I just saw the documentary on the co-founder of PETA.

What a nut! Sure, watching a wolf being skinned alive is horrific. Those people ought to be ashamed of themselves. However, calling pet ownership exploitative is moronic.

I recently adopted an older cat from a shelter. Since then, I have had substantial vet bills, stress, and have to be at home every evening to force my kitty to take her medicine. Heck, I'm the one being exploited. I consider the cat a gift of love and responsiblity. She was nervous at first, and now kitty follows me around the apartment looking for love.

I think Ms. Newkirk isn't able to truly love anything but attention. She's a mean-spirited, misguided, fool.

Because, PETA disapproves of pet ownership, finding responsible home owners is not the goal of their shelters. I have no problem with the sanctuaries they set up, but their shelters seem to be butcher shops where they feast on self righteousness instead of meat.

Shame on them!

Thank you for your blog posting.

Having spent over 15 years in prison, I'm just glad some "humanitarian" group didn't decide to euthanize me (or have me neutered for that matter!).

Don't feel bad, I didn't get it for along time either. Mainly because PETA seems quite sneaky about hiding what they do and the anti-PETA people are all pro hunters, or breeders whom I also disagree with. It's a hard topic to get real info on. I too am vegan but I would like to know if that PETA spokeslady would prefer death to bad conditions? My guess is she would not. I agree most critters have a drive to survive.

Thank GOD for PETA! Yes they want separation of humans and animals, because that's whats best for the animals. It may not be good for humans, but that's the point, why should our own selfish wants and desires trump another species rights. Sadly, the only way to do what's best for animals is too leave them the hell alone. Exploiting animals for profit or pleasure or even companionship is unethical. If you don't want to see whales kept captive to entertain the moronic masses, you don't go to Seaworld. If you don't want to see millions or dogs and cats euthanized each year, you don't buy a pet. And one conflict I always wonder how pet supporters justify is why are they not concerned about the countless animals slaughtered to feed their pets. There seems to be a lot of picking and choosing going on when it comes to favoring some animals over others. The people who can't understand this point of view, and justify animal exploitation whether it be Seaworld or pet ownership are simply selfish. When you consider the majority of pet owners are meat eaters and are happy for 150 billion animals to be slaughtered each year based on the fact they taste good, they sure to seem to get their knickers in a knot about dogs and cats being euthanised, the whole time remaining unaware by owning a pet they are complicit in the genocide.
