Our battle is not against the many, but the few: those with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. This includes failing shelter directors, uncaring bureaucrats, and the large, national organizations which defend them. It is time to educate the media and the public that there is a better way.

What’s up with all the colored peeps again? Why would you do this to an animal? I would not like it if someone dyed my fur and treated me like a toy. Animals are not toys for human children. We are real living, feeling beings (just like you). We have the ability to feel pain, joy, and fear (just like you). We have interests and are individuals (just like you). We are all animals of the earth. Please respect us enough not to dye our fur and feathers for your human pleasures.
I don’t normally trash most animal advocate groups. However that’s not what PETA is. I’m not quite sure what part of “PETA KILLS ANIMALS” that it’s followers just don’t seem to understand. PETA seems to think there should be no companion animals, and that animals are better off dead than living with humans. I don’t agree with that philosophy. It just doesn’t work for me on so many levels. Two of the most important reasons are that it sets up this continuous killing cycle that we are now seeing in these so-called shelters today, and the fact is people and animals need the love and companionship they get from each other. I think as a society we could do a better job at solving this problem if not for the greed factor that’s involved. I’m sure we can come up with better, more compassionate ways to solve this problem other than this continuous killing cycle we’re stuck in. Seriously, if this is the best, most creative solution that we (as a supposedly intelligent species) can do for our animals, than there is probably little hope for any of us.
Maybe instead of teaching fear, hatred, intolerance, greed, and over breeding of ourselves and our animals, we should teach love, compassion and how to live in balance with our natural surroundings.
