They could be so much more effective if they put that money into teaching people how to read and communicate with cats, dogs, and other domesticated animals. 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.
    While the problem of animals that cannot be fully rehabilitated is a human made problem, it is true that many animals that where abused simply cannot be completely made safe, and sometimes safe seeming rescue animals can turn violent when some trigger happens. The cost and risk make full scale rehabilitation of abused animals unfeasible. It's sad, but it is true. It's like nokill shelters vs traditional shelters. While nokill shelters are a great idea, they are simply not practical as a replacement to traditional shelters. Nokill shelters fill up, and many animals spend a lifetime in small cages stacked floor to ceiling with other stressed animals, and are expensive to maintain.

    The thing with PETA is also true with many other groups. They simply don't allow common sense to enter the equation. They do some good things, working to control feral animal populations, providing humane euthanasia to animal shelters that do not have the facilities nor training, low/no cost, mobile spay/neuter programs and educating people on the problems of overpopulation and need for spay/neuter. I even agree with some of their efforts into humane treatment of experimental animals. It's too bad they did not stop there, and it is too bad they use inappropriate tactics.

    It is easy to condemn PETA out of hand. However, like many such organizations, they do some good, and they do some not so good. Things are not so black and white alot of the time as we would like to think.

    Yet Cesar Millan manages to have a pack of 30+ dogs that were deemed "hopeless". It is possible. Of course, those dogs can't be with just anyone. You have to know what you are doing and have to be the pack leader at all times.

    Which means it is not a widespread solution.

    Look, I love animals, and I am saddened at the thought of euthenizing animals. I would love to see the people who abused them euthenized first. However, sometimes it is just the least bad solution in a world with limited resources and too many animals.

    That pretty much sums it up, IMO. There will always be stupid people making stupid judgements with their pets. For the life of me, I will never understand why some people get a dog then tie them outside 24/7. Or the idiots who don't spay or neuter. A guy at work posts an ad on our intranet site every six months or so with an offer of free kittens. I got so fed up with him I replied from a personal email address and told him to get his ****ing cat fixed. I have little doubt that many of those kitten end up at the HS eventually.

    Like I said, people are stupid, and as long as we have stupid people, many animals will suffer. Some can be rehabilitated and saved, but that takes a great deal of time, money and effort. Unfortunately, many animal organizations are spread way too thin.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Saved.

    How about this little fella? He was dumped, on the side of the road. Had we taken him to PETA, he'd have a 5% chance to not be fertilizer. Instead he's living the good life with a caring family. (no kill shelter for the win)

    How about this guy?

    Attachment 67122961

    He went to a large dog no kill group, he's now living the good life as ranch dog.

    And of course, Wyatt (he's the blonde one)
    Attachment 67122962

    Dumped on a county road near Abilene, now living with us (Knox is my pom).

    Everyone of these dogs
    (and the poor skunk) would stand a good chance of being "ethically" killed by PETA. But what do you care? They do it "humanly" so it's OK.

    Oh, there is another, I don't have his pic at the moment, a huskie my wife rescued, he was in such bad shape when we found him he pissed blood all over the back of the car. He's alive, and well today with a loving family.

    **** PETA.
    And that's absolutely amazing. I wish every pet could have a great home.

    Now lets talk about reality. Lets say every year you had 2000 dogs and cats dropped off and you had a limited budget for vet checkups, space for kennels to hold them etc... with your best effort you could adopt out 24 of those dogs a year. Lets say you just do a bang up job and Peta does a horrible job adopting out dogs. You manage to adopt out 500 of the 2000 dogs and cats every year. Are you just going to keep on collecting 1500 pets every year? It's unmanageable. It's aweful but true. Even the best no kill shelters that my wife and I have worked with take in maybe 30-50 dogs a year, because they can't find homes for all the ones they already are taking care of. If they had 2000 animals dropped off every year, they would just have to turn them down and they'd end up going to a kill shelter anyways.

    I can't get mad at PETA because some humans don't take their responsibility of caring for their animals seriously. I doubt they enjoy having to euthanize animals, but there really is no better option when you get that many every year.

    What I think people should do is take responsibility and spay/neuter their pets.
    Isn't PETA against that?
