On June 15, 2013, it will be eight years
since the real PETA was revealed to the world. I am talking, of course, about the Piggly Wiggly Dumpster Incident
and subsequent trial. Since learning the painful truth about how an organization claiming to work on behalf of the rights of animals instead perverts
the definitions of ‘rights’, ‘ethical’, and ‘animal shelter’ by seeking out and killing thousands of healthy and treatable pets every year, I have done what I can to spread the word
, in hope that the more voices raised against this perversion, the sooner it would come to an end.
You have the power to put an end to it by granting the petition filed by the No Kill Advocacy Center, and I implore you to do so. Your state’s own shelter statistics reporting webpage
shows that many of Virginia’s shelters and rescues are capable of great things and save many lives (and on budgets a tiny fraction of PETA’s). Your own findings
in your site visit of almost two years ago show that PETA does not even have proper facilities nor the inclination to house and adopt out pets. Some of Virginia’s open-admission animal control shelters save an impressive 90% or more of the animals they take in and more are working towards that admirable and achievable goal. PETA, with its wealth, national reach, and claim to be a leading voice for animal rights, should be leading the way in saving the lives of lost and homeless pets, yet it uses its wealth and its platform to fight against
saving these animals and seeing them into new homes. They are perverts. To them a shelter designation is nothing else but a license to kill. Please take their license to kill away.
Sure, they’ll make a ruckus about it, but so what? The shouts of joy from real animal lovers across the country and around the globe will drown it out.
