"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares."
Always reblog this. A lot of the animals they kill (and they kill over 95% of the animals they take in at their Virginia Headquarters) are killed within 24 hours. Not nearly enough time to deem whether an animal is adoptable or not. They even bought a giant fridge to store the corpses!
PETA is a corporation. Not a charity. Less than 1% of their 32 Million+ annual budget actually goes to directly helping animals. Most of it is spent making sexist/racist/ domestic abuse supporting commercials that won’t even air on television, giving bail outs to convicted arsonists and criminals, hiring/supporting any celebrity that claims to be vegetarian for five minutes, creating campaigns to target children (“Your mom kills animals”), fruitless lawsuits like suing Sea World for violating the constitution, and most recently, making porn. I fail to see how that fucking helps animals.
PETA does not give a shit about animals.
Plus, these assholes have the gall to insult Steve Irwin.
I looked this up guys and it’s legit. please signal boost!
PETA has never been about helping animals. It’s always been about the destruction of the domestic pet. PETA believes that having animals as pets is an abomination. They would rather see every domestic animal on earth put down, rather than help and educate people on looking after them.
The founder of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, has some seriously fucked up views on the way animals are treated. She grew up in New Delhi, where she worked with her mother in a leper colony and home for unwed mothers. She saw some pretty heinous shit in regards to animal abuse, because it was New Delhi in the early 60s. Being exposed to that sort of awful stuff as a kid sort of screws up your perception of the rest of the world. Deep down, she still thinks that everyone in the world treats animals like the starving populace of 1960’s New Delhi. She honestly believes that every pet in the world would be better off dead in their care, than alive with anyone else, because there’s a chance they might get abused.
The scariest part is, PETA honestly believes it’s doing the right thing.
