The Exam Room at PETA’s Headquarters — 9 Comments

  1. PETA have a reputation for stealing companion animals to kill. See Cathy Keiko on Twitter for some serious history on this

    PETA have also taken in companion animals at their mobile cinics, reassuring the relinquishing stewards that the cat/dog would be rehomed. Then, out back, killing the poor animal immediately.

    These events have been well documented but PETA are on a mission to stop any human having a companion of another species. They behave as if they are a law unto themselves.

    They need to concentrate on eye catching campaigns promoting humaneness, kindness, responsible stewardship and stay the hell away from all non human life.

    Their CEO Ingrid Newkirk had a pet rabbit that, in interview, she said she would happily kill the rabbit herself.

    Hard core idealists might make good campaigners, but they rarely make even halfway decent carers.

  2. When I post information about a worthy Peta project on my page, I never fail to hear from someone regarding the kill policy of Peta. I explain that I agree with much of what they do, but that they are terribly misguided regarding the keeping of cat pets, or how to deal with ferals. Quite often these people are not what I would call passionate animal lovers, and I feel like they are hurling a “gotcha” at me… or so they think.

  3. Nobody is good at everything. PETA is good at the big picture — investigations with broad implications, large-scale advocacy, etc. They are not good with sheltering, which requires focus on the individual animal. They should not be in the business of running an animal shelter, pure and simple.

    • They have some good, but their views on pets are pretty extremist – they don’t want domestic animals and they are open about it.
      For that reason, they should keep to advocacy and leave cats to Alley Cat Allies and rescues that do far better job.
      Oh, and shall we also mention that they promote vegan food for cats which IMHO is cat abuse.

    • Marianna – “not being good at everything” doesn’t justify killing kittens and cats without even trying to adopt them out. If they don’t have resources for that, they should leave this job to rescues and feral cat organizations like Alley Cat Allies.

      • I was trying to be tactful — I don’t understand why they try to do sheltering. There’s plenty of animal work of all kinds to go around, & each kind should be done by those who are passionate about it.
