It's not like PETA wants to perpetuate the slavery that is house pets.

But lately the protester is being protested; PETA has become the No. 1 target among supporters of no-kill shelters.

Paging Grumpy Cat, Grumpy Cat required in PETA thread, ASAP.

I have known many PETA members: they tend to also believe in 9/11 conspiracies, chem trails, and are anti-vaxers. Verily no greater a brain trust exists than in PETA.

These are people who, if their children had a disease which was 100% curable with a drug that was animal-tested, they would let their kid die. I am sure there are sane members of PETA. I have yet to meet one.

Knowing what PETA people are like they probably consider it executing collaborators.

We are currently fostering a momma cat and her five three week(ish) old kittens.  She was an underweight stray that had her kittens outside and was not doing very well at the shelter.  She was so afraid of people when we brought her home just 12 days ago, she would likely have been on PETA's abused cat kill list. So I'm not getting a kick...

/She's gaining weight and just in the last day or two, lets us pet her, and her kittens...

Please, please good people, do you know how badly feeding and caring for all those animals would cut into PeTA's salaries?  Let us be reasonable, now!

How many PETA members' hides would it take to make a snazzy 'bomber' jacket for my German shepherd to wear? And could we make PETA pizzles for him to chew on?
 
2013-07-07 04:41:13 PM  
If PETA is for it, there's a very good chance I'm against it. Stopping the fur trade is pretty much the only thing I can think of off the top of my head that I'd agree with.
 
2013-07-07 04:43:55 PM  
This just shows yet again that if you really do care about and want to help animals, you shouldn't give your money to PETA.  Not only do they not help animals in many cases like this, you'll be supporting a bunch of other idiocy as well.
 
2013-07-07 04:44:56 PM  
I find it hard to believe that there are people who actually still think that PETA (or HSUS for that matter) actually care about animals and not just about advancing an extremist cause

PETA actually supports kill shelters and has made statements that they are in support of them as long as they kill in a humane way. So it seems like they are at least practicing what they preach.

"It's a humane exit from a world that's treated them like garbage," said Ms. Nachminovitch, a vegan who does not use animal products. "It's very sad, but in these cases, it's the best we can hope for."

That says it all.  It's not about animals, it's about themselves and their anthro-self-loathing.  Better to be dead than to attempt to improve.

Meh.  They'd have killed my dog in KY rather than shipping her to MA where we found her (she found us?) and have had her part of the family for the past 4 years.  fark PETA.

At a time when the major animal protection groups have moved to a "no kill" shelter model, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals remains a holdout, confounding some and incensing others who know the organization as a very vocal advocacy group that does not believe animals should be killed for food, fur coats or leather goods.


/Taking the time to find people to adopt, and deal with them, takes employees. And time. Both cost money. Easier to just kill the animals. Profit..its all about the green.

To be fair, that's the part of PETA I actually like.

Also the no fur thing but PETA aint the only one against that.

I assume you donate significant time and money to your local shelter like all the other people who say dumb things like that?

know how I know you have no idea what a no kill shelter is? Or read the article.

For the record, PETA has nothing to do with the animal rights movement. They are a welfare organization, and they even fail at that. Animal rights == not using animals outside of necessity, not treating animals like property. Animal welfare == bigger cages. The difference is like being against beating children, or giving kudos to child beaters as long as it's done "humanely". They do a great job though confusing the public and raking in cash from bleeding hearts who don't do their research on them.

PETA is a classic cult. They exist for one primary function: to take money from useful idiots.

The hot naked chicks who do much of their dirty work doesn't exactly convince people that blondes aren't dumb.
