    The funniest (or saddest thing) is that PETA doesn't oppose abortion - that's the only type of life that PETA doesn't have a problem with being killed.

    They are apparently just peachy with killing animals as well as fetuses.

    But seriously, why would or should People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals give a rat's ass about human fetuses?

People are amazed when Cesar Millan can immediately alter unwanted behavior in dogs. It isn't magic. Instead of reading books about how to rehabilitate animals, people give up and blame the animal for not being able to be rehomed. This is a failure on man's part, not the animals. "Dysfunctional" animals are created by humans. If one knows what they are doing, any animal that doesn't have some medical issue, can be rehabilitated. Yes, there are still too many animals and too few finances and volunteers to save them all, but we could do a helluva lot better.



    mmmmmmm Sea kittens......

Since then, we have adopted a German Shepherd and treat her like a spoiled child lol. People need to realize that, most of the time, their dog will act the way its treated.
    I took a dog to the pound once because it was inconvenient to keep him. I was getting married and found a nice apt for my new bride that didn't take dogs. I thought I was doing the adult thing but in retrospect it was possibly the worst thing I ever did and it still haunts me. Like you I have recently adopted a dog from a kill shelter and she is the sweetest dog you could imagine, it's like at some level they know you saved their life. It doesn't assuage my guilt for taking my other dog to the pound but you can't change what you have done you can only learn from it.

    PETA generally ends up with animals that have been abused. Not those that have lived in a loving environment. Those animals do not have social skills and can not be rehomed so euthanasia is an appropriate solution.

    No-kill shelters are packed solid everywhere. My local government pound contractor kills 85% of the cats they take in INCLUDING highly socialized cats that would make someone a GREAT companion.

    This is MY website - there are no ads - I do this because I give a damn. Advocacy for exceptional cats in imminent danger

    Maybe this will give you a better idea of the horror of what's going on. I think PETA is nuts but I support some of what they do.
    You must not have seen what PETA was doing in Ahoskie, NC. They would routinely stop by local animal shelters and veterinary facilities, pick up puppies and kittens, euthanize them in the back of their van and then dump them in the local town's dumpsters. They got caught on that one, and that little story made national news, happened about 5 years ago.

I did this at a cost of about $300 per cat.

    I was accused by another rescue group of being "Hitler" because I chose only the cats that had the best social skills. My contention was/is that the ones with the best social skills are the ones easiest to ultimately find homes for. There was no way for me to take cats that might take years to socialize, I simply didn't have the resources.

    If you, or anyone, obtains an animal that is damaged and chooses to invest the hundreds of hours and dollars that socialization requires, I salute you. What a noble thing to do. However, I wanted to save as many as practical and I could not practically make the investment of taking a socially damaged animal in priority over a socialized one.

    If you did go to my website, you'll learn that the pound loves to kill animals and does so for the most arbitrary reasons. The ferals have no hope and never even make it to adoption section.

    I'm not sure why I'm defending PETA. Hell, I don't know if I am defending PETA. I'm just saying that I understand there is no possible way to save all the lost and abandoned animals that these disgusting humans keep supplying by not fixing their pets or just leaving them when they move. Add to that the ones whose owners die or are arrested. There are MILLIONS of them.

    I visit and donate to all the active low-kill shelters (no such thing as a no-kill) and the biggest one here has hundreds of cats living in squalor. So, it's a hard call to make sometimes.

    The black one was a feral and it took me years to socialize him. The other 2 are death row cats.
    The black one reminds me of a cat I had a few years back. Poor guy caught Feline Leukemia. Thinner but fur was kinda wild just like that one, 22lb cat that wasnt afraid of anything, named appropriately enough, Trouble.

    Re: Documents: PETA kills more than 95 percent of pets in its care

    Why? Did the shelter (pound) hire PETA to do this? Adopting from the pound here (in LV) costs you $80. Was PETA buying animals for the pleasure of killing them? This really makes no sense - sounds more like and Urban Legend than a plausible reality. I'm not questioning your own veracity, just the story doesn't seem plausible.

    I'm NOT defending PETA and I don't support gratuitous euthanisation. It's just strange that Vets would have all these puppies and kittens laying around and be, like, wow, here comes PETA, lets just give these to them and get them snuffed.

    PuBare (the black cat) is very intelligent. He comes and mumbles when the litter box is dirty, he can open and close any cabinet door and he can speak Japanese (well, not really).

    He's a little shy around new people but he's the Cat Friend that outlasted the last 3 girlfriends. Sweet Pathos.
