PETA Opines On Animal Breeding

Lending her support to Verlyn Klinkenborg's comments of July 30, PETA director of Domestic Animals and Wildlife Rescue & Information Daphna Nachminovitch had this to say about the value of breeding animals [emphasis mine]:

"Given the current dire shortage of homes, no breeding is responsible. Every time someone buys a puppy or kitten from a breeder, a shelter animal loses its chance at a home and pays with its life. Breeders kill shelter animals’ chances to find good homes."
Also deadly to shelter pets? PETA!

Looks like PETA is taking care of the animal over-population and making it safe for breeding to continue! ;-)
