Don’t Get a Dog!

Written by PETA | October 26, 2007

Much as it hurts my pride to get scooped by The Dog Blog on a topic, I’m man enough to admit when I’ve been beaten to the punch. PETA’s resident dog blogger, KP, just posted a great entry about a series of ads put out by the Southern Hope Humane Society in Georgia. The campaign, called “Don’t Get a Dog,” has the simple message that if you can’t take care of an animal, you shouldn’t frickin’ have one. It’s nothing short of tragic that this point isn’t immediately obvious to some people, but I’ve seen enough dogs chained in backyards or crated inside someone’s house that I’m very aware of just how important these ads are. Good stuff, Southern Hope.

    I work at an SPCA and I think posters are amazing so many people are blinded by the ‘I want a dogcatbirdetc’ yes there is nothing wrong with owning an animal but that includes feeding it vet bills make sure it has love etc. I would rather have someone surreder their animal and fess up to the fact they can’t care for it and have it in our shelter then turn out like those poor creatures….dogs just want to love their families and they will no matter how shitty someone treats them and we shoudl take that lover for granted. It’s not a right to live with an animal it’s a privilage to have such an amazing creature as a dog or any animal teach you the way it sees the world and love you the way only an animal can love and trust….
