I volunteer for a no kill shelter and do you know how many of our cats had to be euthanised last year? Zero. They arrive in bad shape according to PETA...yeah yeah, sure. Do you know what's their problem? Adoptions cost time and efforts...and it's not under the spotlight. We are a small self funded group in Italy and we have 100 to 150 cats adopted every year. PETA is being lazy and very cruel.

and how many do you turn away every year? all these healthy pets needs a place to stay first before you can make it a no-kill shelter, but there is no place that big in the world to house all these pets that humans abandon/abuse/neglect, be realistic and start cursing the people that have misstreated these animals in the first place instead of having a go at PETA! 150 cats pr year is less than 0.05% of the cats that needs help in Rome alone.

I also volunteer at a no kill shelter here in Chihuahua Mexico. I am a dog behaviour specialist and i agree with Raffaella, there is no way to justify killing an animal. Most of these sick or ill animals will make a full recovery in less than a year and i speak from experience. It takes time, money, patience and a lot of guts to run a rehabilitation for most animals, but it CAN be done and its worth a shot rather than just giving up on them right away and killing them, beacouse thats what...

Animals lives are just as important as human ones! MURDERERS

PETA may not listen because they're so warped but we must make our voices heard. They need to stop playacting like they're the greatest thing to happen to animalkind when their methods are questionable at best and unethical at worst. PETA, do something about your bad reputation.

Will not sign this. we are very sure that the animals that were euthanized were either ill, or not rehomable. u ever try to rehabilate a pitbull thats been trained to kill? u cant even get insurance! go after the ins comps and the dog fighting!

BULL! Of course they can be rehabilitated. Look on youtube, you will see dozens of videos of this occurring. The second people stop buying from insurance companies that do that, is the second they will stop that too.

I will not sign. I agree with a no kill policy however what happens when those dogs that are up for adoption aren't adopted. Soon there is such a glut of animals waiting for a forever home and it just never comes. If those who have pets would make sure their pets were spay or neutered we wouldn't have to worry.

I know of an animal that stayed at a shelter for a yr. Then, it was adopted to the most loving lady alive. Was it worth that year? That dog seemed to think so. I know many times where that has occurred. Many rescues and shelters don't even use cages anymore. There are many that allow free roam of the animals. It's not like it used to be, but Peta and others want to claim it that way.

I WILL NOT SIGN THIS! You should do your research - look at the pictures of some of the animals that are give to PETA! No faces, no eyes, horrible tumors - ravaged with disease, etc. These are the animals that cannot be helped. DO SOME RESEARCH!

I have Maggie...watch closely: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/douglas-anthony-cooper/peta-so-many-pets-so-litt_b_1607518.html?just_reloaded=1 Read it...the numbers and reality show different. Notice how many times the paper reads, "HEALTHY ADOPTABLE ANIMALS"?

I Have donated to PETA - I was not aware that the organization euthanizes animals they get. What HYPOCRISY! where is the humaness in euthanizing?? I also contribute to another shelter that is NO KILL. Will have to reconsider about further donations to PETA.

I wasn't aware either, and if I recall correctly, my mom told me that she gave my dog to Peta, a long time ago. She stated, "where it would surely find a home." Now, I feel bad, knowing the odds of that occurring were practically nil to none.

They advocate human treatment of animals, sometimes these choices are difficult. God bless all creatures.

So that you can see for yourselves. This is reality, and you can see it for yourself on this site: http://www.petakillsanimals.com/proof It was taken from The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) according to the site.

So, based on these figures, Peta, in 2012, took in 1843 animals, transferred 130 to other shelters (I'm assuming kill shelters,) Adopted 19, and killed 1647 animals. Great job Peta!

Over 10,000 people have signed this petition, so far, Peter. Why? Because people think Ingrid needs to stop KILLING ANIMALS, period. You don't have to agree, but there are an awful lot of us that are in agreement. I wonder how many more will sign the petition. No one is trying to say she's doing something wrong concerning what she does to help animals, but that part has to stop. Why? Because it's not fair to the animals she's taking in, and it's not fair to tell others that she's...

Because it's not fair to the animals she's taking in, and it's not fair to tell others that she's 'protecting' animals, when, in fact, she's doing the opposite to those she puts to sleep..especially the healthy adoptable ones. We are asking that she becomes what she claims to be...a true animal lover...which means, no-kill! 'Real' animal lovers don't kill animals (unless a 'real' vet says they can't make it better for them,) regardless of the reason.

When I said, "that part" has to stop, I was referring to her killing the animals, not the helping part. She should help animals, but killing them is not helping them, in my opinion.

I know of a blind dog, one that a vet said it was kinder to put it down. The dog might disagree, though, since it now sits in the lap of a very kind old lady, daily. It knows where its bowl is and how to go to its potty, and it is loved and cherished and spoiled, daily. Had we listened to the vet, that animal would be dead. Would he be happy? NO, he wouldn't, I also know a lot of older ladies that would love the companionship of a dog or cat. But, there aren't enough homes? No, there are...

No, there are plenty of homes, but if you make the animals INACCESSIBLE to people, you're right, you will never find them homes. Shelters need to extend their hours, become people friendly, take the dogs to fairs, and pet shops, where they can be seen, daily. Create shows that people want to attend, and bring them there, too.
