People for Ethical Treatment of Animals is a well-known
advocacy group that boasts it has helped many animals in this world. It is
highly-acclaimed among pro-animal groups.
However, the New York Times has reported that PETA has
refused to implement a “no-kill” policy in its animal shelter. This has casted
a dark shade over the organization’s impeccable reputation. The newspaper
claims that about 2, 000 dogs and cats are killed every year in the PETA animal
shelter in Norfolk, Virginia. The situation is the same in New York. The
Norfolk facility has placed a record-low 19 animals for adoption in 2012 and
only 24 in 2011. Meanwhile, non-PETA shelters from NYC were able to place an
impressive 90 percent of their animals in adoptive homes.
Animals arrive at the PETA animal shelter in order to
find a better life. Ironically, they end up being euthanized.
A PETA spokesman claimed that many of the animals that
arrive at their shelters are in such poor state of health that euthanasia is
the best available option. However, a shelter with a “no-kill” philosophy
strives to place even those wounded animals in the home of a warm-hearted
family. PETA should follow.
PETA, we urge you to immediately adopt a “no-kill”
policy at all of its animal shelters. If you fail to do this, you will have no
moral right to speak about animal cruelty again.Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in this petition are those of the author (Richard Gibbs) and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of YouSign.org.Do you love animals?
