Why don`t they just leave the animals alone instead of rounding them up and executing them.
animals have survived for millions of years without mans intrusions or intervention they will survive just fine for millions of more years if we just leave them alone.
who gave us the right to decide that it is better to execute the animals rather than just let them live in the wild like they have been doing for millions of years? if we can`t share the planet with other species then maybe we are the ones that should be executed.
Why have we decided that the only animals that have a right to live are the animals that we keep as pets or are controlled by us in some way?

I don't like the fact PETA turned into a two faced back stabbing animal *****.

This sort of thing makes me mad, especially when charities go sour.

I don't think that there are many people out there who have time for pets, or afford pets, or even are able to adopt one.

What I would do is this:

Give people the opportunity to sponsor a pet and get a tax credit for your charitable donation. You will receive a monthly thank you card from your sponsored pet with a paw stamp

PETA has done great work in getting stricter animal testing regulations, public awareness on the fur trade and the horrors that encompass it, as well as factory farming.

And I'm not even a vegetarian or PETA member, they do good work with what they are all about.

I'm not very easy to get tricked into believing propaganda, most animal shelters euthanize, and if they don't it's a life sentence for those dogs/cats in prison. it's cruel to keep an animal in a cage for the test of its life or years until they are adopted. It's more ethical to euthanize them in my opinion.

And btw this story is so old. It comes out like every 3 years. People go along with it like lambs every few years.

Just a note: 1647 dogs/cats euthanized and only 19 placed in new homes is 1.15%, which means over 98% are euthanized, not the 89.4% claimed in original OP.

I do not know the details nor do I fully trust the source but suffice to say that if you're simply letting cats and dogs procreate will certainly lead to further problems. They should have spayed, neutered and cared for them but that doesn't mean they could.

Points of interest in this thread:

No one should own more pets than they can care for, which isn't much at all.
There should be strict background checks when adopting a pet.
Pets are not toys, they shouldn't be handed out as gifts or bought whimsically to children.
And if you're adopting and don't plan to spay or neuter then you're just as much to blame for the overpopulation of pets in the world and the need to kill thousands every year.

In any case, even if that is a very sad number it hardly compares to the 100,000 cows that are murdered each day for the over consumption of meat in the US alone.

This does not surprise me one bit. People need to start adopting pets. And if you do adopt or get a pet and you are not going to be breeding then they should be spayed or neutered. People also need to realise pets are for life.

I agree with what other members have said in this thread....it's insane the amount of hoops you need to jump through and how expensive it is to adopt a pet, especially since the majority are "put to sleep" anyways.

We have two dogs and two cats, all rescued animals, the newest little boy kitty I found abandoned in a parking lot. I was amazed at the amount of paperwork and questions we had to answer the last time we adopted a dog from the animal shelter, it took over a week for them to "accept" us and to bring our girl home. I don't remember the exact cost, but I know it was over $100 dollars., that was 10 yrs. ago and Bonnie is still with us.

I absolutely agree that a pet is big responsibility, we love our animal babies, they are members of our family. I just find it rather disingenuous that many of these " business's" make it so hard to adopt an animal, yet put such a high % down.

If the true intent was to save animals, any animal that is slated to be put down should be given away free, but they don't do that because the animals have become a commodity.....it kind of reminds me of when I worked in a grocery store years ago, they would throw away sooo much perfectly good food, baked goods especially, rather then give it to charity or even employees...company policy....you could get fired if you took home a day old cake you were asked to throw in the trash....very wasteful.....

I know animals are an entirely different thing then food, but just seems to me if one day a month they had a day you could adopt animals for free that they planned to put down anyways, alot more animals would find homes. Sadly, I guess "buisness is buisness"....very sad......

We might as well kill people that are poor or don't have homes, as they are going to be spreading diseases and, "over running the place", population needs to be controlled you know.

One thing about the ASPCA and PETA and all of those groups that really irritates me is the amount of junk mail you receive if you donate to them. A couple of $20 donations to the ASPCA has gotten me a lifetime supply of return address labels and piles upon piles of junk mail. What a waste of paper, not to mention it's donation money that is paying for all this unwanted junk mail. They share your name and address with all kinds of animal charities. These letters often include horrifying pictures of tortured animals to try to depress me into donating more. I get something in the mail asking me for money every other day on average, and it has been months now! A little bit of googling has further made me decide to never donate to these charities again. The higher ups of these "charities" make ALOT of money! If they truly cared, they would not pay themselves such ridiculous salaries. It's something like one half of one percent of donations actually get to the shelters. In the future, I will donate directly to my local shelter.

most rescued pets do usually get put to sleep.

I can see the logic of better never being born at all in this case...

the plight of pets in other countries is even worse.

there's too much suffering in this world.

Idealism to that extreme is a luxury we wouldn't have if we're having to carry a gun out the door just to insure we don't get chased down sometime throughout our day by dogs. There are areas in this world, for at least brief periods, where dog populations in particular HAVE and do get totally out of hand and people aren't considered something to fear all that much.

It gets real ugly...and the stuff to spoil appetites. Suffice it to say, I'd much much prefer educating the Bubba's and well meaning people alike that spay and neutering is the only logical alternative to putting down untold number of domestic type animals daily. It's a tragedy. It really is...such a simple thing to prevent such a bad necessity.

It's just that, it IS a necessity, IMO. The only thing worse than fertile pets breeding in people's backyards is to see them breeding as feral animals in the "wild" of our cities and towns.

Well, you could leave the rescued animal that couldn't be rehabilitated, in some sort of national park, or maybe just a plain old forest, and the survival instinct should kick in and the animal should learn how to survive by itself, so there are quite a few alternatives to just killing the animal.

Definitely better than killing them.

I often wonder why it is a bad thing for cats to live in the wild. It is not like they attack people. They can feed themselves as well. Another thing is cats live much shorter lives in the wild. The average life span of a free cat is 6 to 7 years. Why can squirells and chipmunks run free but cats cannot?

Bloody murders, we should be throwing fur over them in protest.

You make such an important point, and the more I learn and think about this it really makes me mad and very sad for the animals...


I watch alot less tv these days, and when I do it's probably History Channel, Animal Plant, Cooking and Design Shows, and "chick flick" orientated movies and shows...lol...I still Love Little House on the Prarie....


What I have noticed is that these channels are bombarded with commercials to give to different children and animal rescue groups...heart wrenching commercials....anyone with a heart is gonna pull out thier checkbook...right?

It's so disgusting that so much money is raised through these "scams" by good hearted people that really do want to help...and if my Mom gives me another tote bag nobody wants or needs because she donated to a charity.....sigh...what a waste of money......

Hey..here's a plan...instead of wasting money on T-shirts, junk mail, magazines....and God...the tote bag....Spay the rescued animals, give them thier shots, and make it easy for people to adopt them...what's sad is the people actually caring for these animals probably really care.....


I can't even begin to think of all the children that could have a better life if the donations by good hearted people weren't paying for the CEO's and Co, gang of thieves extravagant lifestyles, and actually was being used to help them....I agree with you we can and need to help on a local level...don't give a dime to these people......

What if Red Cross and PETA teamed up? They could feed the cats and dogs to the homeless. That would prevent the animals from being abused, and it would feed the needy.

Good idea right?!
