Our readers also had great insight into the Animal Rights vs. Animal Welfare issue as defined by the Animal Rights Activists.
says animals have rights but it has no shelter facility and
does not re-home dogs and cats, yet claims they are
for Animal Welfare. It appears to me that they abuse
their own philosophy, in which case they are just Animal
Rights hypocrites with big funds.”
"Animal Rights is but a wolf in
sheep's clothing. There are laws in every state
that provide for animal welfare. This is nothing but a
political ruse to steal away human rights."
"PETA and other “Animal Rights” groups say we should have
no captive animals. They should all be free. They want
to ban all breeding until the shelters are empty. How
are they going to accomplish no-breeding if all the animals are
running free? Talk about an overpopulation problem! Give the Animal
Rights activists a big stupid sign."
“Animal Rights” supporters want no pet ownership, no
captive animals. No research animals to save human
lives. So what they really
want is unsupervised, indiscriminate, mass breeding?
Just think, Service and Therapy Animals are carefully
bred for specific reasons. Under that awful political movement, they would all be gone."
"We are not guardians, nor are we stewards. We are
responsible pet owners who provide food, shelter, love
and companionship to our animals. In return they give us
boundless love, protection, and the same companionship
that we give them."
"Animal Rights whackos think there should be no captive animals,
for pets, meat, milk, or any use. Animal Welfare feels
all animals should be treated humanely, regardless of
"Animals are not humans, therefore they have no human
rights despite what the cleverly-named “animal rights”
groups espouse. Animals do not have the
right to run free as advocated by PETA and other AR
activists. Running free would spread unchecked disease
to the human population."
“Animal Rights believes no one being should own or
control another, all companion and working animals
should be freed from our influence. In short no one
should have pets. Animal Welfare advocates believe any
animals in our care should be treated humanely."
"PETA people and other animal rights groups are just
seeking attention at the expense of animal owners."
