My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Norfolk, VA, USA
I find PETA sickening. I love their cause, but they just aren't doing it right. Most of the dogs they "rescue" have to be put down because they're unable to find them owners. They even attack video game franchises, such as Pokemon, believing that these franchises SUPPORT animal abuse. In the Pokemon games, it's about bonding and growing stronger with your Pokemon, not abusing them. In many of the games, the player opposes evil teams that misuse Pokemon! Children have common sense, they won't begin to pit animals to fight eachother just because some imaginary people from a video game do it. If a child does that, then it's the guardian's at fault, not the video game. Back on topic, PETA also opposes the use of testing products on animals. Yes, it would be nice to not risk the lives of living things to test products, but that isn't the world we live in. Sometimes, you just can't change how things go. What would we test items on? Rocks? Don't get me wrong, I love animals. I have two dogs that were rescued, but, I believe PETA is doing it all wrong.
