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...

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 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.

Last I heard, Peta wasn't God and didn't get to choose their fate.
