    So why don't more people know about that going on in Singapore? Wonder why it isn't on the News? Is there some way a petition can be started? I wonder....does Green Peace know about that???

    As I said, I don't really understand the workings of puppy mills that much, only to understand that it is horrible. I wonder why PETA has not actively taken up the cause of puppy mills in the US. Maybe they have, and I just don't know about it. Anyone have any insight into this?

    WOW...I had no idea. All I've ever heard about PETA was the anti fur campaigns. I just couldn't imagine why that would be a bigger deal to them than what is happening in puppy mills, and wondered why they weren't on that bandwagon.

    I've looked at pet store dogs and oohed and aahed over them but I would NEVER buy one. As has been said, it simply perpetuates the use of puppy mills.

    Tibby came from a puppy mill, so I know first hand of some of the emotional issues that they can have. It took quite some time to get the yellow blaze on her chest to turn to its natural white - and to get the smell out of her! She had never touched grass or been allowed to run, plus she had been debarked. And these people were getting $2500 for their puppies.

    It is disgusting to think about, especially since those of us on this board love our own so much. No animal deserves to be brought into the world in a situation like that.

    It's very hard to turn a blind eye to the dogs in a pet store, but we have to learn to do that. We hurt because we love.

    OMG Woodhaven....Just googled PETA, and I am in shock. Thanks for educating me. Horrendous!

    Peta and animal right groups don't want people to own (or eat) animals. They are willing to go to fanatic lengths to force us to stop. BUT -- they euthanize over 80% of the animals put in their "loving" care. They are also behind all the new legislation to make getting pets more difficult.
    The comic book they hand to young children has a picture of a woman with a huge, bloody knife-- positioned over a frantic rabbit. Caption reads"YOUR mom kills animals". They hand these out to young kids.

    What is their reason for not wanting people to own animals, or I guess I mean pets? I can assume the reason they don't want people to own food chain animals.

    They consider it servatude. ROTFLMAO-- who serves whom??? I have had numerous people say if they came back(reincarnated) as an animal-- please let it be one of my dogs.

    That's funny, Sandy, as I've been told the same thing (about wanting to come back as one of my pets). I've requested that when I'm dying no one put my bed over yapping poodles.

    I don't know as much as I should about PETA, but I do know that I don't have respect for them and their ideas. Rather fanatical is how I see them on TV.
