Meet the Animals Behind the Numbers

I wanted to share this really important blog from PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk. Please read, and then take action for these animals and all others.

Stay loud!
-Rachel

WARNING: Graphic Photos.

This blog may shock you, but it is the blunt truth. It’s also a call to action. This is your chance to weigh in for the unloved, the unwanted, and the throw-aways from our convenience-oriented society. I want to ask you to look at some photographs that may haunt you, but they may also prompt you to act.

Kitten
After crawling inside a car engine, this kitten suffered gruesome injuries but was still alive and screaming in pain.
PETA never turns away an animal for being “unadoptable.” Ever. In fact, in our area, as is likely the case in yours, the “no-kill” facility is usually full—full of dogs and cats who have been sitting in cages for months and in some cases years. And that facility, while basking in the light of its “no-kill” pledge, often refers animals to us and to the city pound. We receive calls from desperate people who cannot afford the “no-kill” shelter’s admission fee or can’t cope with its waiting list. We do not turn our back on these animals. Never have, never will. So we take in the animals whom no one wants, and we ease their pain so that they don’t languish unaided or fall into the wrong hands—which often would mean going right back were they came from. We will always be here for animals who need and deserve a kind hand, a loving word, and a peaceful exit from a world that has treated them like trash.

embedded chain
A passerby called PETA after spotting this dog, who had a chain deeply embedded in her neck and reeking of infection.
Last year, PETA did many things: We helped countless dogs and cats in “our own back yard.” Our phenomenal mobile spay-and-neuter clinics sterilized 8,677 animals (562 of whom we picked up for surgery and then took back home in PETA’s Animal Birth Control van). We built and delivered more than 300 sturdy doghouses and delivered about 5,000 bags of straw to warm up cold dogs who were chained or penned outside in all extremes of weather. We provided free veterinary care for animals with infections, wounds, and illnesses. And we did something else that made a difference: Our shelter of last resort took in 2,352 injured, ill, elderly, and unwanted animals for euthanasia. Our Community Animal Project staffers gave each of them love in their final moments, sometimes their first-ever touch of a kind hand, their first kiss, and their first “good boy.”

mange
These two starving, abandoned puppies were suffering from a severe case of demodectic mange covering about 80 percent of their bodies. They were surviving off scraps that neighbors and passersby left for them. A veterinarian recommended immediate euthanasia to end their suffering.
No one feels anything other than crushed to euthanize animals; those who hate euthanasia the most are the truly kind people who are tasked with performing it—people on our staff and in other animal shelters. It’s so easy for some people to turn away, to condemn, or to create the very problem that these brave souls deal with. But they are only cleaning up after the people who neglected those animals; who never showed them a shred of commitment or an ounce of compassion, who thought nothing of crating, penning, or chaining them up with a tractor-trailer chain because it was inconvenient to walk them or secure daycare for them; who didn’t think twice about leaving them behind when their house was foreclosed or dog food became expensive or they left the door open and the dog or cat was hit by a car. Our staff is grateful that people in our community know to call upon us when someone needs to do what’s necessary.

hit by cat
This rat’s guardian came to PETA to have the terminally ill animal euthanized after a local animal shelter turned her away.
The animals who come through PETA’s doors are but a tiny fraction of the estimated 6 to 8 million homeless dogs and cats who are handed over the counter in animal shelters nationwide every year. These animals are abandoned and many are left to languish in cages—waiting, looking up anxiously and hopefully at every person who enters, in the hope that he or she will save them and take them home. A whopping great half of them will be “put to sleep” because that someone never comes (the girl who stopped at the cage and giggled, the man who said, “Isn’t he weird-looking”—they moved on with their lives). The people who are kind enough to hold these animals and stroke their fur as they take their last breath are not to blame for any of it. The blame falls squarely on the shoulders of each person who refuses or “forgets” to have his or her cat or dog sterilized and everyone who has purchased an animal from a pet shop or a breeder instead of adopting from their local shelter.

hit by cat
After being hit by a car, this cat suffered a prolapsed eye and serious internal injuries but was still alive when a passerby found her.
PETA is calling on the governors of all 50 states to endorse mandatory spay-and-neuter laws that would require dogs and cats to be sterilized unless their owners purchase an annual breeding permit, the cost of which would fund low-cost spay-and-neuter services. You have a governor, and you may know a state senator or council member—or perhaps you could get to know one. Please join us in this effort, and please recruit everyone you know to do so as well. We will provide language for model legislation, but please, talk to everyone in the dog parks, in the vet’s office, and on the street. Download our posters and fliers and hand them out and pin them up; pick a low-income block and help the people there spay and neuter their animals; and please, go down to city hall or up to the state house and lobby, so that next year the nation’s homeless animal population will be lower. Individual dogs and cats would ask you to do this if they could.

    There are cruel people out there who do these kinds of things to poor defensless animals. Our job as PETA supporters and activists is to get this info. out in public and do our best to help stop this animal cruelty. My bestie Miranda and I are handing out anti-cruelty sticker,fliers,and basically anything else that will get the publics attention. Let’s keep trying our best to make sure that things like these don’t happen ever again to a helpless animal. XD

    My roommates boyfriend and myself were driving home one night, it was really late and there was a dog right in the middle of the road. We almost hit the poor doggy. Luckily we didn’t, so we took her in(: She had no tags, or a collar. We’re pretty sure she’s blind in one eye and totally deaf. We also gave her a name, Ginger. She’s a little boarder collie, and I think she may have been abused by her previous owners. It’s okay though, we’ll make her feel wanted at home and give her lots of attention(: We love her already!

    It really makes me so upset seeing all this, to be honest I couldn’t even look at anymore photos after the first two and then looked at the last.. I’ve been begging my friend to get his black lab neutered because he’s just a puppy but he’s very playful and likes to test his boundaries so he’ll just run away from you playfully and I’m afraid one day he’ll just run into an oncoming car. My friend lives by the beach, too, so the smell of the dead ocean is tempting to him and would make him run away and get hurt or lost. I’m still pressing the issue and I know soon if I keep on it, that my friend will do the right thing because he knows I love that dog and I love my friend too much to go through the heartache of having this happen. That goes for all poor dogs and cats!

    This is just horrifying. It just shows what animals actually do go through, people harm animals and dont think twice about it. If people were ever put into the situations these animals were, they would probably commit suicide due to the amount of pain certain people put them through. I myself worked at a no-kill humane society this summer, I absolutely loved seeing the animals there they were all soo sweet! I feed stray cats who live in my trailor court and they are ever so greatful for it! even some of the feral cats have warmed up and love to be pet on a daily basis, my kitten was from outside as well I caught her one day and wouldnt let her go! Now shes constantly talking to me, she fetches stuffed animals. I dont ever think twice of helping an animal in need, all my animals are strays and homeless animals I had saved from the street.

    I am so f**king hurt, this is beyond wrong. It’s infuriating this type of s*** persists. We’ve GOT to end this type of torture, and even massacre, because that is purely what it is. And we as people like to just pretend like it’s not happening, just for comfort’s sake. Are these animals comfortable? Not. They’re traumatized. How are we, people, any higher than them as a species? Even so, don’t we ALL have the right to our own safety? Our own bodies? Our own lives? We need to take responsibility for the hell we cast them, and fight for these poor significant animals.

    I think that it is wrong to harm animals. I also think that the reason why they abuse animals is because animals can not fight back also i think that these people who do this to these animals are to scared to take there anger out on some one who can fight back. Also these people who do abuse animals need so help or something. They wouldnt like it if someone was beating on them for no reason or not feeding them. How do you think they feel when they get beat and not feed for days.

    Animals are a part of everyones life, with out them a lot of people would be lonely, they are beings, not toys you can leave around and step on whenever you feel like it. Animals don’t deserve to be abused and left by them selves just because they cannot say what they are feeling, they are smart, like us. People who abuse animals make me sick. They are cute, comforting, etc. They grow close to you, not to be beaten and left abused and tortured, but for a friend. (:

    Everyone of my animals are spayed/neutered. And they were all unwanted or dying before I got them. Now they are happy, healthy, and loved. My 15 year old cat was found in front of Walmart when she was a kitten, I found my 2 year old cat dying of starvation at 7 weeks old in my front yard (both my cats are currently snuggled up to me looking adorable lol), I got my dog at a junkyard, and my horse was given to me because they knew I’d give him a great home. These are my children. I love them with every fiber of my being and I find it difficult to understand how anyone could harm an animal.

    its crazy that people are like that, think they take out anger on animals, because they dont know who else to take it out on. Animals dont have a voice.. we need to be the voice for them Im so happy to know that there are many people on this site who care, just like myself.

    I can’t belive people that work in slaughter homes can come home with blood on there clothes and blood all over them thinking what they have done and how it effects them in there brains.
    What kind of person would just abandon or even leave a embeded chain in a animals neck,It makes me cry everythime but this time i was so angry,

    These photos are horrible. They make me not even wanting to read the text. I love cats and the ones I used to have got injured a lot when they were still alive (they got euthanized this summer), but never this bad.
    I didn’t buy my cats either, they were given to me by people we knew whose cats had had kittens… One of them was always really sick and it cost a lot taking him to the vet several times a year… But I had them for almost ten years. They were adorable. :’)

    Does PETA believe that euthanasia is wrong? I recently HAD to euthanize my beloved rabbit, Joy. You can tell by her name that I loved her DEARLY. She was my little baby, but she’d gotten very very ill with some type of protozoa that some bunnies are born with, but it is rare to find rabbits that get sick from it. Unfortunately, mine did. I did everything I could possibly do to help her get better. For 3 months, I struggled and put her on every kind of antibiotic imaginable to help her. However, she never got any better. She used to be a 4 pound bunny, and when she passed away, she was only 2.5 pounds. She never gained any weight, and the day I had to put her down, she was going cold, and I knew it was only a matter of time until she would die. She was in pain though, and I did not want her to suffer. The veterinarian even cried after it was done, bless her heart. I’ve been crying every day, and I still sit by her cage and just cry and cry. I do have a lock of her fur to put into a locket, (which I obtained AFTER she passed away), and we are burying her in a sweet little casket in the backyard with a headstone and a memorial garden.
    I do not see, after having 7 years with my little Joy, how ANYONE could hurt any animals ever!! When I saw that picture of that poor rat, I couldn’t help but start to cry. I wish I could’ve helped it. I have a very soft spot for rodents, and I hate to see anything happen to them. Animals really are special companions who love you no matter what, and they are a joy and a blessing to everyone.

    I want to tell you about how I got my amazing puppy Rosalie! I did NOT Buy her I found her on my street, some one had abounded her. she was being chased by 3 coyotes. I asked every one in my neighborhood and no one knows who she is! she had some skin conditions. I have had her for about one year. she is a little chihuahua terrier mix and she is one and a half years old. that’s all the vet told us about her. I do not know when her birthday is so I have decided to have her celebrate it on Christmas the same day my other puppy was born.

    I have a comment about my state rep. Michelle Brooks. Her local office helped a dog that was chained ( 3 foot of chain at most) to a pile of misc. junk with no food, shelter or water…in the middle of summer. Call local aspca, they were so slow in helping the dog. Next day got a call from Brooks office saying they were going to do something…with in 2 days the dog was removed.
    OH YEA…the dog was located in town about 30 feet from our the local court.

    While reading through this article, I felt every muscle tense up and tears flow and my fists were clenched tight. This article p*ssed me off so bad. I hate how people turn there backs on animals in need of help, because they “Don’t want the responsibility.” They’re f*cking cowards! That’s all it comes down to.

    This was very hard to look at. I’m fifteen and I cried while reading through this story. Knowing that I have three cats of my own this is just sickening to know that someone could treat animals like this. Just sickening.

    Is that last cat picture necessary?
    I know the point of these are to get people to stand up and take action, but let’s be real, not all homeless cats look that way.
    I would be broken hearted if my child had to see something like this.
    I’m not trying to put anyone down, but this has gone a little too far. I’m sure there are better ways of bringing attention to these situations.

I am sick thinking of the things I see at work, and the stupidity of owners also. I believe there should be a class you have to take before owning animals. Its common sense people, seriously!

    I have said this before and i will say it again. Any ****off caught abusing a animal needs to do jail time. Fines are not hurting these people. Put these assholes in jail, they will lose their jobs, respect from family and friends and hopefully someone in jail will teach them a lesson. If this was done to a child all hell would break loose. What makes a animal any different. They can’t defend themselves. Jail is the only solution to put a stop to this.

    These pictures, especially the one of the cat that had been hit by a car, were disturbing and horrible. Imagine all the animals that DON’T get treatment and aren’t recognized that sit in the streets or alleyways or abandoned homes suffering. These animals need help, it’s murder and cruelty if we see and don’t respond.

    Our generation is young and different. Look how far we’ve come. Look at all the technological advances. Look at the diversities in peoples’ styles. Our generation should be the one to change this hatred and these uncaring acts. We have stepped out of our comfort zone and showed the world we can stand up for ourselves. We can stand up for these animals too. These animals sadly don’t have forever to live, but neither do those who commit these acts. They need to be replaced with people who are humane, and sane. When you adopt a pet, Love it. Don’t abuse it. Animals have feelings, too.

    Although I do agree that all of this shit that goes on is immoral, disgusting, and completely disrespectful, in some cases I do think that euthanasia is necessary. Only few though.
    If a dog is missing a leg or a cat is blind, that is absolutely NO excuse to just put it down. Take responsibility for the creatures that you decided to take into your lives, people.
    If your daughter or brother were crippled, would you just metaphorically pull the plug on them as well?
    Seriously, people need to start taking responsibility for other lives and start seeing animals as more than an accessory.

    These pictures make me want to cry. I rescued my cat, Indy, when he was found wandering around when he was only three months old. My dog, Bella, was left in a box with her 6 brothers and sisters at the local humane society. She is part pit bull so it was a while before any of the puppies were adopted. She is the sweetest dog in the world and the only way we could adopt her was after she was spayed. My other cat, Evie, was adopted from New Beginnings Cat Shelter. She was at PetSmart where my brother saw her and fell in love with her. My other brother had adopted a kitten, but she died 4 days later. So me and my mom want to the same place we got Bella and found a beautiful black cat that had spent her entire life (6 months) in a cage. Sally is now healthy and happy with Ryan and she has even figured out how to play fetch.
    Rescue pets are the most loving. When will people figure it out?

    I am from northern ireland and am an assistant to a vet in a small practise. Over here everyone can get their dogs neutered or speyed for £15 through dogs trust and cats £5 through cat protection league. I work as a volunteer going out trapping feral cats for neutering. It is a free service for anyone with colonies of ferals and some people still wont let you do it.
    It makes me very angry that people can be so irresponsible in letting their animals breed when the shelters are already full, to bursting..

    I used to work against animal cruelty, and I still remember a dog with an embedded collar on the neck like the one in the picture. I rescued the dog, and the veterinarian said two more days and the collar would have finished off the dogs airway. It was terrible. Out of all my rescues, that had to be the worse. The dog is now with a lady NEVER to be chained or have a collar on again. It has a fenced in backyard to play in and goes indoors when it wants. I think about that dog a lot of the time. I am disabled now and
    unable to do what I once loved doing, rescuing animals, hope there are lots of others out there
    helping in situations like this. I love animals,
    have several myself, all neutered and well cared for. My husband feeds and cares for them. He loves animals too.

    Just another thing that pisses me off about stupid people, and the government. Spaying and Neutering SHOULD be a law, and animal breeding should be illegal. For every animal bred, an animal on death row is ignored and put down. I’m sick of seeing animals beeing abused, abandoned, and neglected. I had a cat for 18 years, 5 of which he was a diabetic. I’ve never loved a creature so much in my life. He was here before I was born, a stray that my mother took in, and we were here for him till the end. We loved him unconditionally — gave him everything from hugs to kisses, affectionate brushing and attention. Every animal should be treated that way, and we should not stop until we make this dream a reality. Let’s do everything that we can to give animals that are suffering a second chance in the hearts of those who will care for them, and apply pressure on the government until they comply with our demands.

    For every person out there who buys a dog from a breeder or a pet store, one is euthanized at an animal shelter. There is just not enough homes for these loveable animals and all it takes is to spay and neuter your animals. I have 3 dogs all from the shelter who are so LOVEABLE and I feel like they appreciate me because I rescued them from death.

    I will never understand how people can be so cruel to some of God’s most vulnerable creations.How anyone can see an animal in pain and do nothing,or abandon an animal is unbelivable to me.I have an indoor cat,Missy,who I adopted from a Vet’s office ten years when she had just been weaned from the mother cat.At least the person who could not care for the cat’s kittens (Missy has two siblings who were also adopted)was compassionate enough to ask a Vet to find homes for the kittens.I’ve also adopted two stray cats,Tabby and Smokey, who are indoor/outdoor cats because they looked like they were starving and I didn’t have the heart not to start feeding them.Anyone who neglects,abandons or is in some other way cruel to animals has absolutely no heart at all.

    He said just bring your kids here and I will show them the miracle of death.
    This coming from a shelter worker at a shelter that killed many more than they saved at the direction of the board of directors who wanted to keep the costs down.

I want to do a even bigger research or smth, as my graduating paper next year. (I don´t know if you know, what a graduating paper is. It like a paper or task I have to do, and then present, so I could finish school.) Can anyone tell me where I could get even more information about this topic? you can e-mail me at lahenz@hotmail.com
    PS! I think I will have quite disturbing dreams tonight. ‘cos the pictures, yeah, they are really cruel.

    These pictures are absolutely horrifying. I am actually sitting in my colleges’ library and I am holding back the tears. These images though, do raise awareness to animal homelessness. We all need to help any animal in ANY way that we can, whether it be picking them up and adopting them or simply taking them to an animal shelter for safety and care. I mean, what could be more important than saving the life of an innocent animal?

    this is awful, whoever has the brutal cold heart to hurt an animal and not help it afterwards, has some serious issues and is on my s**t list.

    so sad that people are not spaying/neutering their pets and that people are still buying animals, instead of adopting!!! Like these pictures are so disturbing but true.

    Oh.My.Gawd. Why would anybody want to do this to poor innocent animals. Really, whoever does this kind of crap is sick and I personally don`t think that they deserve to live.On the other hand i think the animals should live. I mean you don`t see the animals go out and torture people.And we shouldn`t do that to them.Its sick.gross.and demening to all animals.

    i adopt and find a homes for a dog a month. And i dont get dogs nor buy dogs from breeders i almost barferd on that last video. I am against the gas chambers but humane euthanazia is best for some. I hate seeing animals in pain and sadly death is better than being beat,fough,starved,and abused for the rest of their lives death is the most humane thing for some animals i wish EVERYONE ON EARTH could stop abuse in all forms animals abuse,child,domestic abuse !!! ERRRRRRRR

    This is very hard to look at. I had a cat when I was 5, his name was harley and he was hit by a car, we had found him and took him home and nursed him back to health. He died this year at 11 years old. But he did live a long life! I can’t stand to see animals suffering like that!

    My beautiful dog’s face pops into my head when i looked at these.
    I saved my Dog. She was being abused, so my aunt and I went to their house and offered to take her off of their hands. They were glad to be rid of her. Now she is my whole world, I love her more than anything else.

    I live in the UK where the PDSA offers very cheap spaying/neutering but even then people don’t use the service because they think they’ll be able to sell off unwanted puppies and kittens, much more education is needed.

    this is so ridiculously sad, and why no-kill shelters aren’t the solution to the MASSIVE amount of animals roaming around homeless.

    their own animals are F****

    I just rescued a puppy from the side of the road, she HAD a bad case of worms, but they are almost gone, the sign said “FREE PUPPIES”, and she was in a trash bucket, in the sun, with no food, and her blanket was SOAKED with poop. I took her to the vet, got wormer and some Eukanuba, and shes happy and grateful as can be. She is a chow pitbull mix, which is awesome, since I already own another pitt rescue, which loves the new baby, and they have such a bad rep, but they are really good, loyal, smart and high energy dogs.
