    I adopted a sweet, sweet Aussie-mix from animal control on October 4th. Her human died and other family members didn’t want her. My gain; their loss.

    This story should have all mutts and no purebreds in the pictures. I am not saying purebred dogs are not adopted, but this article would best be represented by pictures of mutts as the focus is adoption. Again, I know pure bred dogs are adopted, but when I see pictures of purebreds, my mind automatically assumes a purchased pet whether it be true or not.

    @Heather Take a look at this page to see PETA’s stance on “pets.”

  • Heather says:

    I thought that PETA did not advocate pets? You have stated before that animals should not be owned. Although when I have a pet I always state that I am their caretakers. The bird advocacy groups that I belong to ask me to not talk about birds with you because they say that you are against people having animals as pets. I am completely confused.
    I currently care for a 6-year-old parrotlet, who was adopted. If I didn’t adopt him, he might not be alive today. If I let him out in the wild he would be killed or die very soon. That would make me sad. Am I violating PETA’s policies? I am sincerely confused.
    Please help me to understand your policies better, and please don’t send me more paper. I like trees, too.

    No. I want to see an end to the exploitation of animals as playthings for human whims. HAPPILY PET FREE FOREVER.

    NO FAIR!!! I volunteer at a 100% NO-KILL shelter as a Feline Adoption Rep and even though my Maine Coon, Abby, is the love of my life – all this cuteness is so darn tempting! Good thing she’s a one-person feline, LOL! My previous joy, Sadie, crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 17 years and we enjoyed 12 wonderful years together! I swear she sent Abby to me since Abby was re-introduced to me again at the shelter only one week after Sadie’s passing. The last time I met Abby, I wanted to take her home, but Sadie was also a one-person cat. I told Abby the last time that if it was meant to be, our lives would cross again. Little did I know that Abby’s human passed around the same time my Sadie passed! Wow…talk about Kizmit!

    Not fair, this questionnaire is loaded with cuteness.
