Hi everyone, I havent been on in a while, the site looks great. Anyway i was wondering if anyone read the article about PETA in this months edition of the Best Friends? Not sure if this is new or old or even talked about on this site (sorry if im re posting ). The article talks about how PETA rounds up homeless cats and dogs and destroys them...???
I've heard about it. I don't read many magazines or anything like that; mostly the internet. There was a huge thing on them lying about spaying/neutering adoptable animals, saying they actually ended up killing thousands of them instead.
The organization's views on animal rights upset me so much, I only pay attention to them when something is happening like what's been said on this subject, or something similar. Any of their extremist campaigns I just try to ignore, as does most of the non-PeTA population, luckily!
Dogs cannot sin; that is a privilege exclusively for humans.
Didn't read that exact article, but have heard about it. I have also heard of them taking dogs from shelters and destroying them as well( because somehow that is more humane than the dog having a chance at a home).
I do not agree at all with PETA. I do not think that the "ethical treatment of animals" involves taking tons of adoptable dogs and euthanizing them simply because they have no home. Wouldn't be better if they made/sponsored some sort of no-kill shelter so those dogs they kill and dump can find loving homes? No, I bet those dogs would much rather be dead than with a person who loves them. (insert your own degree of sarcasm there!)

It was in the news quite a bit last year (I think it was). I think Peta is one of those organziations that started OUT with the best of intentions and took a seriously wrong turn somewhere along the line. There are whackos in most any large group I guess, but pets and pet ownership can bring out the best and the worst in people. It would seem that in Peta's case, it's the later, rather than the former case.
