    I think a better solution is mass sterilization.

    There'd be far less euthanization.

    By giving them death you care for them?

    There must be a better way, imo.

    Yes, that's true, and the sad reality is that not every abused animal can saved. On the other hand, there are some animals that suffer abuse yet never become aggressive to people and can be safely adopted out nearly immediately.

    You cannot force people to spay/neuter their pets. I think most animal shelters require it of pets they adopt out, which is a good thing. PETA provides mobile spay/neuter clinics for no or low cost.

    I wish their was. I love animals alot. However, animal shelters, especially no kill shelters which are more crowded and have longer stays for animals have big problems with disease and loss of muscle on animals that stay there. It gets to be a very poor quality of life. I have been told(and cannot verify, it is strictly anecdote) that no kill shelters especially have a hard time keeping long t3erm help since it is so depressing for those who work there seeing the animals and what they go through.

    I used to volunteer at a no kill shelter and I still support them financially. What you're saying sounds more like a puppy mill where the people don't give a **** about the animals. That's so not the case, not where I volunteered anyway. Most of the people who volunteered there preferred animals to most people. LOL

    PETA supports pet euthanization. Call this hypocritical in lieu of their core beliefs, but this doesn't violate what they "stand for" if it's a position they support.

    I meant if PETA were to sterilize any of the animals they handle, whether it's through the animal's drinking water or through needle injection.

    It'd be great if people could cheaply buy a sterilization kit, whether a small vial of said chemical w/syringe or whatever, and be able to inject their pets if they want to.

    If there were any loopholes to allow mass-sterilization of cats/dogs, it'd be wise to take advantage of them.

    No no no. That is not what I meant to imply. The people who work at those places are incredible people who deserve more credit than they will ever get. The problem is not with the people, but with the limits in time, space and money.

    I don't know enough on this issue to come up with a definitive stance.

    If PETA has/must euthanize(ed), then that's unfortunate. I've seen how those animals live and it tears at the heartstrings.

    Perhaps if sterilization were to ensue somehow en masse, this problem would diminish.
