PETA kills over 90% of dogs and cats that it takes in, they don't believe in animal ownership

PETA - People for the "UN" Ethical Treatment of Animals, the same people that parade naked women serving non-meat hotdogs kill over 90% of the dogs and cats brought to their shelters.

They don't want you to own cats or dogs or any animal.

Time for some pay back catsup splatters on their non profit leadership.

I've never agreed 100% with peta

(they've been too radical for me) but it's sad that yet another organization have become total hypocrites.

I've never had a pet that wasn't rescued in some form or another btw.

They remind me of cancer inc. more about self-aggrandisement than doing anything worthwhile.


...follow the money and consider the source (who funds that source) that's accusing PETA. See my post below.

Can't really blame them,

Can't really blame them, there are SOOOOO many cats and dogs that they just can';t take them all. bLame the irresponsible owners who get pets and abandoned too quick...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian... a project of the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF).

The donors to CCF include: Monsanto, Tyson Foods, Outback Steakhouse, Wendy's, Brinker International and Dean Foods.

What a coincidence -- just the very companies that PETA is a threat to.

Follow the money, folks.

Don't Troll Me, Bro

Even if the allegations are true, the worst we can slam them with is being hypocritical.
If this is the case and one simply responds with malintent, then it is not about concern for the lives of these supposed animals; it becomes just a way of ego-stroking into thinking that "They're no better than me for killing animals." Which is just an attempt to justify one's own disrespect towards animals.

I'll decline getting vacuously sucked into mob mentality here, and instead opt to respect life and live as an example of character rather than perverting my words into attacks (starting with being forgiving of any shortcomings of PETA and the author of the original post).

I can't stand their sanctimonious BS. The people who support them won't even feed their pets (what do they call them instead, animal companions or some shit?) real food necessary for optimal health. Vegans who support PETA claim to want the best for their animals then they force their cats and dogs to eat vegan diets because it makes them feel morally superior to everyone else. Cats and dogs are obligate carnivores you morons, you CAN'T feed them friggin' TOFU!

strictly , your opinion.

Dogs can live just as healthy life vegan. Besides if you knew what was REALLY in most dog food you probably wouldnt feed it to them. Cats are strictly carnivorous. Im not going to let you slander a fearless and courageous organization like Peta without a response.

Oh please.

You can spare me the lecture, I don't feed my cats the conventional garbage available at Walmart. They are on a grain free diet with lots of raw offal. Vegans who force their morals onto their pets are SELFISH. They do so only out of concern to satisfy their own conscience and not out of a desire for their pets to thrive. Dogs can survive on a vegetarian diet, but there is a difference between surviving and thriving. If vegans have a crisis of conscience over feeding their pets meat products they shouldn't choose to have carnivorous pets, period. I support HFA, but PETA can fuck off.

{And Im glad you responded} Dog can THRIVE on a vegan diet as long as they have sufficiient protein in there diet.Replacing meats with nuts and grains is the key. True larger dogs need lots of protein and there is natural dogfood you can buy in the store that will do it.Just like children it is easier to get them to eat it if they are puppies its alot harder to get them to switch when they are older. Peta members love there animals they would NEVER force them to do anything that they thought would harm them.

Look at their biology!

A dogs entire digestive tract is designed for a carnivorous diet! If these maniacs aren't forcing their pets to eat a diet that is not natural for them why don't they give the animal the option to choose on its own? Do they ever give the animal the option to eat meat? NO, they structure the pet's diet on what makes THEM feel good. A raw diet is the optimal diet for dogs but these people refuse to feed their dogs ANY raw meat. They FORCE them to eat a bullshit diet composed of foods the animal wasn't naturally designed to eat. You can't get around that fact. It doesn't really matter if the person feels okay about doing it or not, or whether they feel that they aren't doing anything bad. There is no legitimate reason for them to make their pet conform to their moral ideal. I'll say it again, if feeding their pet the diet it is intended to eat conflicts with their morals, get a pet designed to eat a vegetarian diet not a cat or dog. It's selfish, PERIOD!

If you gave your child a choice to eat candy or vegetables which do you think he would choose. Doesnt mean its more healthy for them because they would chose candy.

Seriously, this is your analogy?

So meat to a dog is the same as candy to a human? I didn't say you should empty out your pantry/fridge onto the kitchen floor and let the dog decide what to eat. If given the chance a dog would scarf down chocolate and potentially die, but that's not exactly the same as allowing the dog to eat meat now is it? I said dogs should be, *at the very least*, given the option to eat the food it is *naturally designed to eat*. Are you going to argue that a diet of raw, wholesome meat is not healthy for the dog?

Here again I have to say nonsense

Talk to a vet, as I did, they will tell you its the protein not the meat. And there are better ways to get protein then meat.Dogs are carniverous and omnicarniverous. To say a dog cant survive without meet is like saying humans cant survive without meat.If you want to feed your dog meet thats fine. I feed my dog regular dog food and add dimacious 8 .

Oh good lord

I'm not going to talk to any of my local vets about proper cat/dog diet. Why? Because it's obvious by their peddling of Science Diet (overpriced garbage) that their primary concern is not with wholesome pet nutrition. I will, however, take the advice of Dr. Karen Becker and Dr. Barbara Royal who are integrative and holistic health veterinarians. They both promote a raw diet for cats and dogs.

Dogs are not both carnivorous and omnivorous. They are carnivorous. A carnivore is animal that "derives its energy and nutrient requirements from a diet consisting mainly or exclusively of animal tissue, whether through predation or scavenging (wiki)". Their biology indicates that they are carnivores:

"To say a dog cant survive without meet is like saying humans cant survive without meat."

I specifically stated in my last response that a dog could survive on a vegan diet, but it is not ideal and it is selfish on the part of the owner to FORCE this on them out of misplaced moral militancy. Not only that, but the statement doesn't make sense. The biology of dogs and humans is entirely different so to suggest that they are equal is absurd.

If someone wants to feed their dog meat it's more than just "fine", it's *natural* and optimal for the dog!

Here's another article for you to consider regarding the implementation of a vegetarian/vegan diet for cats/dogs:

fearless and courageous? LMFA..... DUNCE ALERT.......

Yea thats right fearless and couragous.

They always on the front lines when theres a protest in Dallas they marched in unison with occupy and the r3Volution audit the fed. Plus there good looking to because none of them are overweight because they are vegan. They probalbly do more frontline activism in hour then youve probalbly done in a lifetime Sierra if we had half those girls with us in campaign we might have won.

I guess they didn't read the book

The Little Prince. If you tame, you own it. Humans are responsible for the care of any and all domesticated animals, imo. And like any living creature, survival is priority in their minds.

Wildlife Ownership will Save Wildlife...

its the lack of good ownership that ends up harming both domesticated animals and wildlife animals.

In the State of Oklahoma, all wildlife is 'owned' by the State. Guess what, they are loosing their wildlife.

Green libertarian-ism has the answer... I hope those PETA people google it.

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

Yes, the tragedy of the commons.

Why is it the common Cow never even came close to extinction and the Buffalo was nearly eradicated from existence?

Because the Cow has owners who have an interest in preserving their investment.

When the Buffalo was unowned their was no reason for people not to simply kill as many as they wanted to, it was free and didn't cost them anything.

Private ownership gives people an incentive to preserve them, when was the last time you heard of a rancher machine gunning his herd of cattle?

Now that people can own herds of Buffalo and profit from their use, Buffalo are no longer going extinct, the same has happened with Alligators and other animals.

Penn & Teller did BS episode on PETA

Warning this may be offensiveto some due to launguage. About the last 5 min of the episode, they talk about how PETA bought a walk-in freezer to store youthanized animals

Beep beep boop beep... I am a Paulbot... prepare for liberty and prosperity!

Peta response

This campaign is the work of the deceitfully-named Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), a front group for Philip Morris, Outback Steakhouse, KFC, cattle ranchers, and other animal exploiters who kill millions of animals every year, not out of compassion, but out of greed. These companies are worried about the strides that PETA is making that are changing their industries and compelling them to take animal welfare concerns seriously, so—since they can’t argue with us on the facts of the animal abuse they fund—they hope to scare people away from caring about animals by spending millions on smear ads, mailings and Web sites like this. To learn more about CCF—which USA Today recently opined should rename its Web site ""—please see the following Web sites:





Despite its deceptive intent, we welcome the opportunity that this provides to discuss the animal overpopulation crisis. We are on the front lines of the battle to turn back the tide of unwanted dogs and cats, and we need your help. PETA is on the front lines of the battle to turn back the tide of unwanted dogs and cats. Our caseworkers tirelessly rescue homeless animals from environmental dangers, as well as cruelty and neglect ( They crawl through sewers, poke through junkyards, climb trees, and dodge traffic in order to reach animals in danger. During floods and storms, they are out saving lives at all hours.

Some of the animals we take in are lost companions with loving families who miss them; we are always happy to return such animals to their homes. We have also managed to catch and return some highly elusive animals other agencies had given up on. PETA does not operate a shelter, but—even though we foster many healthy homeless animals that we have rescued in homes (often our own) or take them to shelters to await adoption—the reality is that thousands of adoptable animals are euthanized every day in shelters across America due to the lack of good homes.

Because most area residents take healthy, adoptable animals directly to local shelters, the majority of the animals we receive are extremely sick or injured beings for whom euthanasia is, without a doubt, the most humane option ( To learn about one local instance, please see On another occasion, when a power-line transformer explosion burned a flock of starlings, PETA was the only agency to come to the birds’ aid; if our trained technicians had not been ready to end these starlings’ misery, the injured birds would have suffered in agony for days before finally succumbing to a painful death.

In addition, PETA provides free euthanasia services for local residents who have very sick, critically injured, or geriatric companions but can’t afford to take them to a veterinarian. One family, lacking money for vet care and transportation, turned to us for help for their cat, who had barely crawled back home after being mauled by a pack of dogs. We were able to help by giving the cat a peaceful end to her intense pain.

We also began offering our services to shelters in North Carolina in 2000, after PETA was contacted by a police officer who was distressed by conditions in a county pound. North Carolina has the second-highest kill rate per capita in the country—35 animals killed annually for every 1,000 residents—and most do not die a humane death. When we step in to properly euthanize animals (at no cost to the participating shelters) as we do in this instance, our involvement prevents animals from being shot to death with a .22 caliber firearm, gassed to death in an rusty metal box, or injected with a paralytic that causes slow suffocation without loss of consciousness. It prevents their suffering for weeks on end from disease and illness, or worse. We know from bitter experience that for homeless animals—even those in some shelters—there is such a thing as a fate worse than death. To learn more about the conditions that led to our involvement in North Carolina and about some of the many improvements we’ve been able to make, please visit We also hope you will read this recent editorial that sheds more light on the issue of animals suffering in pounds near the North Carolina and Virginia border:

We wish that there were other acceptable options available. We cannot bring the majority of these animals back to Virginia for placement—the same issues regarding adoptability of injured, sick, or old animals exist everywhere, and “open-admission” shelters, which never turn their backs on any animal (unlike so-called “no-kill” shelters, which turn many animals away) are already unable to cope with the overpopulation of animals. There simply are not enough homes for them. Using Virginia shelters also means that there would be fewer homes for animals already in Virginia adoption facilities.

Some might argue that the solution to this crisis of overpopulation of so many unwanted animals is to open sanctuaries. But the sad reality is that the math doesn’t add up. There is not enough money available to us or anyone to build enough sanctuaries or organize enough animal-adoption programs to keep up with the number of unwanted animals, particularly those animals deemed “undesirable” because of their infirmities, age, or behavior. Abandoning domesticated animals to fend for themselves would be irresponsible, of course, but to keep them in cages or pens for a lifetime is no more humane for homeless dogs and cats than it is for animals in laboratories or circuses. To learn more about "no-kill" sanctuaries, see and

Putting all our resources into kenneling unwanted animals would also do nothing to stop the flow of more and more unwanteds. The source of the problem—trying to prevent the births of unwanted animals—is where money and efforts need to go. PETA runs a mobile spay/neuter clinic ( seven days a week, focusing much of our work in disadvantaged neighborhoods, where we offer free and low-cost surgeries and other services such as flea/tick treatments and worming. In the last year, we have sterilized thousands of dogs and cats—many free of charge and all others at well below our own costs. Support for this program is much needed, as you can imagine.

We hope you understand that it is heart-wrenching for those of us at PETA and at shelters across the country who care deeply for animals to have to hold animals in our arms and take their lives because there is nowhere decent for them to go. Those who truly seek to make a difference for animals understand that it is necessary to do the right thing—even when it's unpleasant—rather than supporting false "solutions" simply because they make us feel less uncomfortable. PETA has always spoken openly about euthanasia on our Web site and in our publications, and—although we understand that it is upsetting to think about—euthanasia will continue to be necessary in this imperfect world until people prevent dogs and cats from bringing new litters into the world and as long as people hide their heads in the sand and leave the dirty work to others.

We hope this has shed some light on our policies, and our work. To learn more about what PETA is doing for companion animals and how you can help, please see the following Web sites:

The PETA Staff

This Convinces Me More Than Anything

that the majority of people on DP are working for corporations and the government. I can't believe that so many "normal" people are this against animal welfare unless they have an agenda. DP has been infiltrated. I feared as much.


I feel your pain skippy.

The original poster received his information from a very deceitful radio host.Who is working for the same greedy corporations that are using this campaign to smear PETA.I just thought I would post this to set the record straight.Having met a number of of PETA members personally at Dallas Occupy did not find them to be left wing wackos. I found the to be very caring compassionate people who wanted to promote the healthy vegan lifestyle and were just as passionate about there cause to try to prevent animal cruelty as we are about ours. I found this quality very admirable.So many times I have tried to promote a bridge building threads between the left and right and most of the the time I am met with hostility and distrust. { On both sides I might add}. When will people realize that "powers that be" wants us to remain hostile and divided.If you look at my ratings you will be able to see that I am probably the most unpopular poster on this site.But I am not going to give up I am not going give in because when you do give up they will win and you should'nt either.So if it is any consolation to you, If there is only one person who stands up with you and tells you that I respect your beliefs and I sympathize with your cause then it is me.So please dont LEAVE I will be very lonely without you.

fuck peta.

Go to hell PETA


They were caught killing

dogs and cats in the back of vans off the streets and then dumping them in trash bins around Virginia.
