      Here's a new debate topic - animal rights v.
      animal welfare. Excuse me if it's already been taken.
      I'm just bored and need something to do. Personally,
      I support animal welfare. I think groups like PETA
      and HSUS definately need to sort out some problems -
      don't think I that I think adopting animals and
      everything is wrong, because I adopted a dog from our local
      shelter last Feb., but look at the statistics (found from
      <a href=http://littlegems.hypermart.net/1/ARA.html target=new>http://littlegems.hypermart.net/1/ARA.html</a>) - PETA sent Rodney Coronado's "support
      committee", the guy who bombed the animal research place,
      $45,200, which is 15 times as much as they donate to
      animal shelters every year. Less than .03% ($5,000)of
      PETA's $13.4 million dollar budget was given to shelter
      spay/neuter programs in the US. 90% of PETA's donation money
      was spent on it's new satellite offices in Germany.
      HSUS does not operate a single shelter, even though
      they have a 40 million dollar budget.That's enough to
      operate at least one good shelter in every state, plus
      they'd have enough money left over to feed, spay,
      neuter, and save the lives of thousands of dogs and cats
      every year. But they did manage to pay it's president
      and vice president a combined amount of $446,882.
      Something seems a little fishy, maybe they're really not
      devoted to animal rights, just lots of $?<br>Whitewolf
