PETA's Preposterous Solicitation
Gini Denninger | November 2011
I will not
contribute to PETA since PETA equates me with those that
commit atrocities on animals.
I am very aware
of PETA's closed mind to people like me who breed and show dogs. But I
have done animal rescue my whole life, and I do not exclude mix-breeds. I will not turn away from an animal in need.
to what PETA espouses, my dogs are not enslaved, if anything I am
their slave. Most dogs at shows enjoy being there. Those that do not
like to show are placed in pet homes. Take the time and really watch
dogs at a show and see for yourselves how many of the dogs are
enjoying their time there. I know not all breeders are like me. I
hate puppy mills as much as you do. As a breeder I resent being
lumped with them by you.
really upsets me is I do not see PETA using it's clout or money to
help animals that REALLY need help, like all the animals being
buried alive in Asian countries due to disease! Where was PETA then?
Why did it not create a huge campaign to get people outraged and
where were your lobbyists with the legislators? I believe you did
nothing to help these poor animals that suffered deaths as
horrendous as the animals being skinned alive. Where will PETA be in
the future when it happens again. Will you finally act, or just keep
being a money making organization with cushy offices???
I and many
people have come to see PETA not as an organization that REALLY
cares about animals, but as a money-machine with the higher-ups
making large salaries dependent on collecting money from people who
want to do good and think by sending money they are. I feel PETA has
been ineffective in the capacity of animal stewardship because of
it's attitude towards people who genuinely love animals and show
their dedication to animals by actually having daily interaction
with them. I wish those that contributed to your fancy solicitations
would know the truth, that you would deny them their cherished pets.
If they knew, your organization would be through. Or, would finally
come to do what it originally set out to do; to seek ethical
treatment for all animals, not elimination of large numbers of
people that you vilify, dog & cat breeders, horse fanciers etc.
could have been your biggest allies. They are more vocal, effective
and active in causes that help animals than the average person. This
is because they actually LOVE animals and being with them. I and
many others like me would be right there with you and would welcome
a large organization as yours to work with, to help stop animals
dying these horrible deaths. But instead you lump us with those that
are so cruel. How naive and stupid are you? Or is it that your
intentions are not what you claim...to help animals that really need
your help??? I doubt my dogs need your help, why don't you
concentrate solely on where animals desperately need help... like
those poor animals that were buried alive without a shout-out from
maybe review your intentions. I know you think all dogs and cats
should be loose (without owners). Lets see how long before the
majority of animals would die because they do not have the skills to
survive. I have come to believe the ultimate goal of PETA is to rid
the world of all pets. No more
will people be allowed to have animals in their care - or have pets
to comfort them. Well good luck. And in the
meantime, those animals that could use our united front to help them
will continue to live in horrible conditions and to die horrible
deaths, because your organization will not rethink some of their
stances. What could have been an unstoppable united front of animal
lovers is a fractured mess that accomplishes a fraction of what
could be done.
