- 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
