It is finally the
beginning of the end for the horrific cat hell known as "Caboodle Ranch,
Inc." (Caboodle)—a disgusting, crowded, disease-ridden no-kill "rescue
sanctuary" in Madison County, Fla.—that has long been the subject of
complaints to PETA's office.
Today, thanks to
evidence gathered by a five-month-long PETA undercover investigation, the
cats are being seized and taken to safety.
Video footage and
photos taken by PETA's investigator show cats suffering from upper-respiratory

comes at a critical time for homeless and unwanted animals in Florida. A dangerous bill is currently making its
way through Florida's legislature. Animal shelters would be forced to hand over
animals to self-proclaimed, unregulated animal "rescues" like
Caboodle if the misleading "Animal Rescue Act" (S.B. 818 and H.B. 597)
becomes law. PETA is calling on the bill's sponsors to withdraw the legislation
without delay. Won't you please help us?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
