    Animal Rights Uncompromised:
    There's No Such Thing as a 'Responsible Breeder'
    Most people know to avoid puppy mills and "backyard" breeders. But many kind individuals fall prey to the picket-fence appeal of so-called "responsible" breeders and fail to recognize that no matter how kindly a breeder treats his or her animals, as long as dogs and cats are dying in animal shelters and pounds because of a lack of homes, no breeding can be considered "responsible."

    All breeders fuel the companion animal overpopulation crisis, and every time someone purchases a puppy or a kitten instead of adopting from an animal shelter, homeless animals lose their chance of finding a home—and will be euthanized. Many breeders don't require every puppy or kitten to be spayed or neutered prior to purchase, so the animals they sell can soon have litters of their own, creating even more animals to fill homes that could have gone to shelter animals—or who will end up in animal shelters or so-called "no-kill" animal warehouses themselves. Simply put, for every puppy or kitten who is deliberately produced by any breeder, a shelter animal dies. Producing animals for sale is a greedy and callous business in a world where there is a critical and chronic shortage of good homes for dogs, cats, and other animals, and the only "responsible breeders" are ones who, upon learning about their contribution to the overpopulation crisis, spay or neuter their animals, and get out of the business altogether.

    Breeding Trouble
    Producing more animals—either to make money or to obtain a certain "look" or characteristic—is also harmful to the animals who are produced by breeding. Dogs and cats don't care whether their physical appearance conforms to a judge's standards, yet they are the ones who suffer the consequences of humans' manipulation. Inbreeding causes painful and life-threatening genetic defects in "purebred" dogs and cats, including crippling hip dysplasia, blindness, deafness, heart defects, skin problems, and epilepsy. Distorting animals for specific physical features also causes severe health problems. The short, pushed-up noses of bulldogs and pugs, for example, can make exercise and even normal breathing difficult for these animals. Dachshunds' long spinal columns often cause back problems, including disk disease.

    Adoption: The Only Compassionate Option
    There is no excuse for breeding or for supporting breeders. If you love animals and are ready to care for a cat or a dog for the rest of the animal's life, please adopt from your local animal shelter, where there are dogs and cats galore—tails wagging and hearts filled with hope, looking out through the cage bars, just waiting to find someone to love. Shelters receive new animals every day, so if you don't find the perfect companion to match your lifestyle on your first visit, keep checking back. When you find your new best friend, you'll be glad that you chose to save a life—and made a new best friend as well.

    If you know anyone who is considering purchasing an animal instead of adopting from a shelter, please forward this article to them, and please consider making a donation today to support PETA's vital work to save lives.

    PETA doesn’t love animals, they hate people.

    What is the Animal rights agenda? Short Answer: to take our animals away.

    I've always thought that PETA is just a bunch of whackos, and this proves it.

    Wesley is intact from when he's been shown. Not to sire a litter and create even more animals to fill homes that should have gone to shelter animals.

    When I was a freshman in college, I went to exactly one Peta meeting. They wanted us all to sneak over to the ag barns (it was a school with an agricultural department) and free all the chickens and cows.

    It's true - PETA's sole purpose in life is to make it so nobody has any "pets" or animals captive period. Personally, PETA needs to be abolished, they do more harm then good imo.

    I'd love to walk into a PETA meeting wearing a big ole fur coat and eating a giant plate of fois gras. Eat that PETA.

    This makes me sooo sad.

    Many people think that people who love animals and fight for animal rights are "weird" and "wacko" and have their priorities confused....

    The fact that a well-known group like PETA confirms those stereotypes in the mind of the general public only serves to efficiently destroy the credibility of advocates who ARE working and fighting for better treatment/increased rights for animals.

    So sad.

    Organizations like PETA do more harm than good to the cause in the long run. Rather than trying to educate people on real issues they simply believe they have to sensationalize everything. They end up preaching to the converted and perhaps patting each other on the back for an inner circle of people that think alike but they hurt the cause in that reasonable people that might be more sympathetic to their overall cause are pushed in the other direction because of their radical stances. It's too bad because the organization does bring up some good points but alot of what they do is washed away in rhetoric.
