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...

They say there aren't enough homes for animals. This is a FALSEHOOD that has been passed around year after year. Take a look at the numbers yourselves: According to the stats listed on US CENSUS RECORDS, table 2-1
Occupied
housing units
105,842,000 Total Number of Households in U.S.

Tenure

72,238,000 Owner occupied
68.3 Percent of all occupied
33,604,000 Renter occupied

What does this mean? According to PETA, we don't have enough houses to take in animals, because 6 - 8,000,000 animals each year, walk into shelters. Really? According to the above numbers, we have PLENTY OF HOMES AVAILABLE! Start finding them and filling them with the love that only animals can bring, PETA! It's time to stop using the old EXCUSES and really get to work, like other shelters and rescues. By the way, the numbers I used are from 2010 (last stats recorded) and even more homes and people exist now. So, GET TO WORK, for REAL!

wtf do these numbers have to do with anything? not everyone on your census wants a dog, can afford a dog, particularly a dog with God knows what issues! You are seriously in la la land!

I hope my donations to you are not paying for what you are doing in killing these animals. I am stopping my donations.

What's the point of rescuing them to kill them later? I never understood that.

I agree, it needs to stop. All the shelters need to become NO KILL. It's the only way, and people need to stop BREEDING them. Fix them so they can't and poof. Charge people to breed, and watch how fast it ceases. Charge them enormous amounts for each puppy sold, as a tax, and poof...it will end the breeding which, will in turn, reduce the population of them.

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.

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"?
