    Do you honestly think I'm trying to defend PETA? I couldn't give a flying **** what they do.
    But the way you responded to Redress obviously indicated you have a serious problem with people disagreeing with you.

    I prefer the ASPCA and Humane Society myself. PETA does not as best I can tell run shelters, but they also do not as I can best tell think euthanasia is preferable to finding homes for pets. Further, PETA runs low and no cost spay/neuter programs which help work on the overpopulation issue.

    Every day, PETA's fieldworkers help abused and neglected dogs—many of them pit bulls nowadays and many of them forced to live their lives on chains heavy enough to tow an 18-wheeler—by providing them with food; clean water; lightweight tie-outs; deworming medicine; flea, tick, and fly-strike prevention; free veterinary care; sturdy wooden doghouses stuffed with straw bedding; and love.

    I remember a NatGeo special about some of Michael Vick's pitbulls taken to Dog Town. The wisdom was that they were just too abused to ever be good family pets and the expectation was that they would just live out their lives at Dog Town. After months of care and rehab, thought, some of those dogs were able to be adopted out, even surprising several of the volunteers there.
    Some abused animals can be socialized, but it is a painfully long, expensive process.

    Well boffo for them. Your stance isn't that PETA is doing something right, you're trying to deflect negatives from an organization with the proper political ideology to yours. That's all your post was. Defending political brothers, nothing more.
    PETA is a horrible organization that says "Do as we say, not as we do".

    **** them, and **** anyone defending those ****heads.
    So different reactions to different things are different. The fact you have yet to show where PETA is wrong or inconsistant in euthenizing animals shows that one of us is using this for politics, and it ain't me.

    If PETA didn't euthanize animals, there'd be too many to take care of.

    What I think people should do is take responsibility and spay/neuter their pets.

    I remember reading of a group that believes keeping companion animals is making "slaves" of them. I tried finding it the comment but I couldn't, so maybe it wasn't PETA. You can tell, from the links below, though, that they don't think having domestic animals, even well treated ones, is a great thing. They also don't have much use for no kill shelters.

    I feel like it's only hypocritical if one takes PETA seriously. PETA's main objective seems to be to sabotage the pro-animal movement. Kind of like Fred Phelps in that way. So if that is their objective, it's not really hypocritical.

    It does seem a bit hypocritical of PETA. They champion animal rights and care for animals, yet they euthanize thousands.

    Can they really have it both ways and expect to not come under fire?

    Yeah, like I have said, I am not a supporter of PETA. They go over the top and your first link is a good example of that. I do agree with them on nokill shelters. They create more problems than they solve and I find euthenasia preferable to a lifetime in small cages packed in a room with other stressed animals. It's one of those value judgements some will diagree with and I don't have a problem with the disagreement, it's purely a judgement call kinda thing.

    The idea is that euthenization is preferable to the alternative. Their stance does not make then any less a "champion" for animal rights and care for animals. In their opinion, and it's a very defensible position, they are providing the best care possible for those animals.
