I have always questioned the methods and message PETA projects in the media. Ideology is easily transformed to the excessively zealous, and zealots are dangerously single minded and wreak of self importance.

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...

Jonas Spartali: check out No Kill Nation - this plan has worked in 6 large U.S. cities to date with 500 communities this year alone beginning the plan. It is possible! In the US, they claim pet overpopulation but all of these cities were able to save anywhere from 90-98% of the animals coming in. What these kill shelters don't tell you is the stats on the demand for these animals. But, the shelters have to work together with Rescues to do it. It can be done, people just move away from the...

What these kill shelters don't tell you is the stats on the demand for these animals. But, the shelters have to work together with Rescues to do it. It can be done, people just move away from the old mindset, believing in the possibility and giving it a fair shot! What is there to lose besides the death of millions of animals?!?

Why don't they get in touch with Best Friends and ask them to take the animals off their hands? Best Friends accept ALL animals in their sanctuary and take care of them until they find a forever home for them. If animals are not adopted they stay at the sanctuary and no one harms them. It is their home.
