Since 1998, PETA has opted to “put down” 23,640 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding homes for them.
I believe in treating animals ethically, but I still hunt and enjoy eating meat. I don’t kill wild game for sport. To me it is nourishment for me and my family. It is also a method of animal conservation. Without hunting, animal populations would increase and bring an increase in starvation to the same animals.
Domesticated animals cannot survive without their human counterparts and people who believe otherwise are foolish. Dogs and cats have been domesticated for thousands of years and depend on humans for their survival.
I also do not have a problem with animals being used for research as long as it is ethical. We would not be as medically advanced as we are without these animals. Cures for many diseases would not have been found and people would not have the hope that they carry every day of being able to beat disease and live better lives.
How is it okay to put healthy adoptable animals down instead of adopting them out to good homes? So much for animal welfare; it’s obvious they just care about money to line their pockets and advertise the wrong doing of pet owners and hunters with no understanding whatsoever about true animal welfare and conservation.
