They weren't born in that cage.

If you or I were to "euthanize" an animal, we would be fined, or possibly jailed for it.

It's ok for them to though... because it's just business

i bet if the owners who took them in, if they knew they was to be put down a lot would of left with their pets. also why is it ok for them to kill animal?. coz its a problem and there are too many. originally these animals was wild. we have a population crisis globally we don't go round killing homeless humans with euthanasia can you imagine the uproar? so why is it ok to kill innocent healthy animals its them same thing in my eyes.

I had read this info about a year and a half ago, so of course I wrote them. I was blown away, there was no denial! I can probably pull up the email to quote verbatim but it cam down to, it is cruel to let an animal "survive" in a less than optimal environment. They think they are angelic for giving sweet mercy and killing them. There are some very good people out there giving money to what they BEIEVE is a good really is false advertising.
I wish more people knew....

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.

A project like that i imagine would cost to much money and would reduce the profits made up at the top at PETA.

The top ranking people over at PETA do not live in average houses and do not drive in average second hand cars just because they run a charity organization, they live in luxury because of their charity organization.
There are no true charities , not by a long shot.

Disturbing topic... One thing that always catches my attention is lack of an mention of species other than canine/feline. How many rabbits, ferrets, mice, rats, gerbils, hamsters, and other small mammals were euthanized? Most animal shelters primary focus is on larger mammals dogs/cats, and very few resources are devoted to helping other species of animals that are popular pets/companions. I realize that there are a few non-profit shelters devoted to some of these types of animals, however, the truth is, that all too often these animals are released into parks or dropped off in a cage at some shelter's doorstep without a note/food/water (I've seen this many times and it disgusts me that people treat these creatures as disposable objects). This usually spells doom for the creature.

I love dogs and cats, I always have. I consider myself an animal lover, but there is something about the small mammals that seem to be overlooked and forgotten that tugs my heart-strings the most. Please try to remember that there are other animals that, due to whatever circumstance, deserve and need our care and compassion.just as much as dogs and cats do.

They only placed 19 in new homes?

Our local Pet Smart places more pets in homes in a single weekend!

It is time for Peta to rethink its use of shock-tactics, recruiting scantily lettuce-clad celebrities, and start investing more resources to handling its ever increasing traffic of animals.

PETA also reached out to officials, but not to help save the animals.


If they are becoming resource-stretched, reaching out to other like-minded community-centred groups would lead to greater efficiency and more lives saved. This would also start a grassroots movement in selected communities and promote realistic strategies any community could adopt to safeguard its animal/pet population.

Yes this is exactly how this looks like. Because death is so much better as a solution and it's so "humane".
Funny thing is, the alleged "feral" cats in major cities are probably living a pretty "ok" life. Cats are domesticated animals, they are used to live with and near-by humans, they can do pretty well even when they are stray,

I say that because I live in a tiny town in Spain and there are plenty of stray cats, it's always the same cats I see for several years already. So I know they must be doing 'ok', at least as opposed to those cats who (in the US) are caught and killed two days later where PETA would claim it's "more humane" as opposed to letting them live, even under "not so optimal" circumstances. looks like as if PETA is against TNR (trapping them, neutering them and then releasing them) and would rather just euthanize them because it's so "humane" in their twisted mind.
