In my town an old crazy woman died and they had to remove 29 cats from the basement.

Not the kinda cats that are cool either.

Ringshadow: This is old news. PETA is a bunch of raging hypocrites that has stated it's bad to use animal derived medicine while they have insulin dependent VIPs. They've also stated that it'd be better for all pets to be dead than in the hands of caring owners.


This thread has already shown that there are people unaware that the way they run their shelter is vastly different from the way reputable animal shelters are run.

I live in VA. My previous job involved a lot of driving, and everytime I took the highway through Norfolk, I'd roll down the window and flip off their headquarters building as I drove past. I'm not sure how much good this did, but it did make me feel better. I like to imagine that at least one crazed animal lover/killer saw me flipping them off, got to thinking about why someone would hate PETA so damn much, and decide to reevaluate their life.

notto: Yeah, they should keep them in small cages for the rest of their natural lives, that would be the ethical and humane choice, right?

Euthanasia in these circumstances is the ethical and humane choice.  If you don't agree, then go get yourself 10 cats and a few dogs to help out.


congrats you support terrorism and murdering animals because its wrong to treat them to a life of luxury where their biggest worry is whether to sit on the couch or carpet.

but its for their own good.

DeathCipris: karmaceutical: Some people just can't wrap their head around the meaning of "Ethical" I guess.

And by some people I mean some  blithering Fark dimwits.

The PETA morons are indefensible. They protest, quite loudly in fact, that killing animals is wrong for ANY reason, yet they euthanize animals for the same damn reasons the pet shelters they protest. The reason is because it is the only humane thing to do.


What protest would you be talking about, exactly?

meanmutton:

Why does PETA have a 90% euthanasia rate while the rest of the humane societies in Virginia combine for a 10% rate?

Because PETA intake rules and guidelines are more lenient than other shelters.   They will take anything that comes in the door as a surrendered animal or from other shelters.  Not all organizations do that.

the pet population would dwindle down to zero with no viable mating pairs...

I'm okay with this. Enslavement of animals as "pets" is pretty sick on the face of it.

A Google search turns up only a single hit for PETA protesting an animal shelter, and it happened to be one that sold animals to the University of Utah for research and dissection. And that's from peta-sucks.com, so I doubt they were pulling punches.
 
2013-03-21 09:19:49 AM
I suggest PETA should protest itself with dozens of naked women hurling buckets of paint over each other in symbolic protest at this mass murder. Everyone else can call them what they are - attention whoring hypocrites. There are dozens of far more deserving and reputable animal welfare organisations who should receive donations before these clowns.

I always thought this was the State Dept. of Natural Resources responsibility.  Since when do they allow PETA to do this?
 
2013-03-21 09:21:48 AM

AverageAmericanGuy: I'm okay with this. If people would properly spay and neuter their pets, the stray animal population would be a non-issue and people wouldn't end up with litters they didn't want.

Euthanizing the animals may be sad, but the reason for their deaths is because people don't care enough to have a simple procedure carried out on their pets.

It's far better these animals are put down quietly and humanely than to have them die of starvation, used as practice targets, run over by cars, poisoned, or mauled by other animals.


bob barker is that you?

That's quite an interesting hypothesis.  What evidence do you have to back that up?  Are their intake rules such that they ONLY take in severely sick or injured animals?  If so, please feel free to provide some evidence to back up that assertion.

Maybe the animals are injured beyond recovery?  I can't imagine they would euthanize healthy wildlife.
 
2013-03-21 09:23:19 AM

Ennuipoet: What?  Did you expect them to do something humane like care for them?  That would get in the way of making money for PETA!


And when you surrender an animal, they blame you.  Even if you found it stray and knew you couldn't handle another animal.

Sure euthanizing animals may be the most humane choice, but an organization like Peta doing this smacks of hypocrisy. Maybe they should stop spending their money on advocating the end of all pets/zoos/research/meat and instead oh I don't know, use that money to care for unwanted pets?

Peta, we care about animals, unless it costs us money then f them.

TheGreatGazoo: Louisiana_Sitar_Club: I'm going to find a place where they're euthanizing animals close to my house, rummage around in their dumpsters, and make clothes with  the fur from animals they've euthanized.
 That way no animals are killed specifically for their fur.  The animals that are killed don't go to waste.  And since my clothes are made locally, rather than arriving in shipping containers from Asia, I'll be reducing carbon emissions as well as striking a blow to sweat shops and chid labor.  I'll be the greenest muther effer on the block.

Generally the incinerate the corpses so they don't spread disease.

Plus the chemicals you would need to use to stabilize the skins would make you decide that this was a bad idea very quickly.


They always poo poo the visionaries.  I expected this.

Smidge204: WTF? They're euthanizing wildlife too?


Yeah, in many cases some of the euthanization guidelines that PETA recommends are not able to be done by people that actually find the animals or for wildlife rehab centers, etc that may have animals that have to be euthanized.

While I'm no fan of PETA's tactics, there's nothing wrong with euthanizing animals in a way that causes them the least amount of distress possible.  Euthanizing animals is not outside their charter.

There is nothing sensational here, move along.

Of course not. It's concern trolling. The people criticizing PETA aren't doing it because they love animals and want to see all euthanasia end; they're doing it because they hate PETA. Frankly, I'm not sure why... with their naked chick campaigns, PETA panders to these idiots, so you'd think they appreciate it.

I don't believe it is hypocritical to believe that Zoo's are degrading to animals while also believing that the humane course of action for ill or discarded pets is euthanasia.

Carn: Well, I assume at least nobody ate them after they were pumped full of death chemicals?  Everybody listen to Bob Barker and get your pets fixed.  Kill shelters suck, but I understand the necessity.


Anyone with sense knows that kill shelters are sometimes necessary.  The problem is that being dropped off at PETA is a death sentence

They aren't a kill shelter, they're a kill factory  and this isn't news.  They've been operating this way for years.

I'll slightly disagree with the hypocrite part.  They're more pure con artists, making money off the ignorant masses that think they're doing something to help poor fluffy when they donate.

TheGreatGazoo: Generally the incinerate the corpses so they don't spread disease

.

Generally, but he's in luck if he's talking about a PETA facility.  They will indeed just toss them in the dumpster.

SwiftFox: National humane organizations have a problem: Either they are the ones like PETA that operate and support animal shelters, which inevitably results in euthanasia for homeless animals that can not be placed with new owners and complaints that they are wasting money with any political work they do, or like the Humane Society of the United States they are organized for advocacy work and run no shelters - which results in complaints they are illegitimate or hypocritical as a humane organization because they run no animal shelters.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't.


No they aren't.  PETA doesn't kill animals that can't be placed, they just kill them all and have done so for decades.

[Citation needed], since your article disagrees with you:
Brown added that it is PETA's normal operating procedure to place dead animals into heavy duty black trash bags. However, those bags were to be properly disposed in a landfill or incinerated at PETA headquarters.

Their basic philosophy is that animals have rights similar to or the same as humans.

When you claim you believe that, and spend your budget protesting other causes while killing animals that you could instead care for?

IMO Peta is a bad thing for animals all in all. Legitimate problems like poor care in some zoos (and I believe for any intelligent animals like dolphins) are ignored by the general public because of fringe behavior from these nut balls.

Here we have the Portage County (Ohio) APL.  They run a no-kill shelter; yes there are such things.

They provide many services to the residents of Portage County--one of which is an "admissions service for those who must give up their pet or turn in an animal".
Their focus is "care and welfare of the abused, abandoned, sick and injured dogs and cats that come through our doors".  As opposed to exploiting animal suffering to generate outrage and contributions.

There are many such organizations--they don't get much press because their purpose is not to glorify their own importance.  If you care about animals or pets in particular and want to really help them, find such an organization in your area and get involved.

If there isn't one locally, contact a distant one and ask them how they did it.  And start one.

There was a news story going around YEARS ago, I mean I think I wasn't even in middle school, that talked about the fact that PETA would go to vets, persuade them to give up healthy animals waiting for adoption, then kill them in a van inside of an hour after that and throw the bodies into dumpsters.

And they were proud of this.

PETA offers free euthanasia service for people who can't afford to take their sick animals to the vet and even for other animal shelters.  What monsters.

Oh yeah, like we're ever going to stop breeding cats & dogs on purpose. The argument for "fixing" pets is to prevent accidental litters that people can't or won't take care of.

OTOH dwindling the human population down to zero or very close to it sounds like a good idea. And I've never had any kids so nobody can accuse me of hypocrisy.
 
2013-03-21 09:48:08 AM
718 of 733 dogs were "surrendered", I'd say abandoned, by their owners (Yo mama next?!)... 12 were adopted...
Two things can be done (besides the whining in this thread):
1. Let's do something about the cause, not the result.
2. Or pay more taxes to have the animals taken care of, so people can buy more puppies and abandon those later.
Neither is popular in this country. Business is everything.
