Review for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Norfolk, VA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I think people who are so quick to jump on the PETA bandwagon need to take a step back and look at this group through less jaded eyes. It sounds like such a sure fire group of wonderful people, guys who are in it for the sake of the animals and their rights. But when you look at it from a different light, there's a lot more sinister stuff going on in here. They are in full support of the entire elimination of all pit bull species, for starters. Now, I do understand the enigma that surrounds this breed, but for a group that so vehemently supports animal rights, where is the reasoning behind trying to eliminate one? In fact, if one looks into it, there hasn't been a group this extreme and disconnected with reality and the issues that need to be addressed for a long time. They harass people for drinking milk, they compare people who eat chicken to murderers. To the people that are sending out so much money in favor of this group, I strongly suggest you actually look into all of what they are involved in and how your money you are giving to them is being used. This is not the same group their tear jerking commercials seem to indicate

Nathan, Given that 8 million dogs and cats will enter shelters, and some 4 million will be euthanized, and that millions more die painfully on the streets, it is somewhat bizarre that you are concerned about the elimination of pit bulls (a breed, not a species) when they are among the highest percentage of homeless dogs. PETA does not believe that every pit bull should be euthanized; we do, however, staunchly advocate a ban on the breeding of pit bulls (in fact, breeding any dogs should be illegal—millions must be put to death in animal shelters every year because of the tragic overpopulation crisis). We have come to this conclusion because of the work that we do—and will continue to do—to protect, defend, and improve the lives of pit bulls who are still being victimized, including dogs like Rikus, who was cowering in his doghouse with a hole exposing muscle and bone in one of his arms and whose face was swollen to the size of a melon, and 31-pound Asia, who was chained by a 14-pound rusty chain in a barren yard without food—a skeleton with skin stretched over it, in terrible pain and barely able to move (please see for her story). As for dairy and chicken, PETA does ask consumers to look at the usually-hidden cruelty of the meat and dairy industries. See for what one PETA undercover investigation revealed in 2012. Cruelty to animals is extreme!


Review for The Wildcat Sanctuary, Sandstone, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently sponsored a serval named Mesa with the sanctuary. I have been getting emails sent to me that specifically give me updates on how she's doing with her enclosure mates and what she did with her recent enrichment. It's a lot of fun being involved in something you care about. Also, any non profit group that is able to with just one picture, convince me to give them $250 for a feline sponsorship is also going to get a five star review. Can't wait until I get to go there, and it is definitely in my book of potential careers
