Review for People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals, Norfolk, VA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

They have millions of dollars in budget. Yet, they spend it on lame campaigns and their stupid time making video game parodies on Mario, Poke' Mon, Cooking with Mama, etc. Also, they like to euthanize a majority of cats and dogs. I know they have a page of why they euthanize, and show severely ill animals, but of course they're not gonna mention the healthy animals that get put down. Oh, but they protest against kill shelters, but what gives them the right to kill off the animals then? PETA is a bunch of BS. Go spend time on actually helping animals instead of throwing money away with garbage campaigns and stupid parody flash games that butcher peoples childhood.

What you call "kill" shelters PETA and the shelter community term "open admission" shelters because they accept all animals, unlike turn-away (so-called "no kill" shelters). PETA promotes open admission shelters. PETA runs three mobile spay-and-neuter clinics, serving low-income residents in Virginia and North Carolina. The clinics offer free and low-cost sterilization surgeries as well as other services, such as flea and tick treatments, vaccinations, and deworming. Since starting its first mobile clinic in 2001, PETA has sterilized more than 85,000 animals, including more than 11,000 in the 2011 fiscal year alone. One local animal shelter compared its intake of puppies to the same period in a previous year and reported that it took in 100 fewer puppies and attributed that decrease almost entirely to PETA’s spay-and-neuter program. Clearly, PETA is helping to reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats. PETA has also freed Ben the bear from his dismal conditions, brought about replacement of crude animal tests with modern non-animal methods, and otherwise made landmark changes that help animals, as noted at http://www.peta.org/about/victories/default.aspx
