No Pricey Purebreds for Meredith Vieira

Written by PETA | August 6, 2010

This morning’s Today show featured a story about the latest fad dog breed in China—and the astronomical prices people are willing to pay for the dogs—up to $600,000 in some cases. As he was introducing the story, Today host Matt Lauer asked co-host Meredith Vieira how much she would be willing to pay for a dog. “I like to get them from the pound, actually,” she replied.

That’s right! You can’t put a price tag on unconditional love—or on the great feeling you get from saving a life.

    Go Meredith! We need more people on tv to make comments such as meredith’s . I’m sick and tired of hearing people talk about the dogs and cats they purchase. There’s too many animals that are put to death because there’s not enough homes for them and also dogs used for breeding in most cases are seriously mistreated.
