@PWC2, did you read the article you posted?

"Contrary to myth, PETA does not want to confiscate animals who are well cared for and “set them free.” What we want is for the population of dogs and cats to be reduced through spaying and neutering and for people to adopt animals (preferably two so that they can keep each other company when their human companions aren’t home) from pounds or animal shelters—never from pet shops or breeders—thereby reducing suffering in the world." This is what rescues and shelters preach. There is nothing wrong with this at all.

I'm still trying to reconcile it myself. I need to eat, but I do not need a pet. I guess that's where I start. So if I want to stop some animal suffering then I would start there because I don't need pets and a lot of animals are mistreated so that a person can select the one that is cute enough to own. If no one owned a pet a lot less animals would suffer during their lives. Yes, I am aware they would die. Death is part of life. Humans owning animals for companionship doesn't have to happen.

@pwc2 You have shown me the error of my ways. I guess the big smile on my dog's face whenever we do literally anything is a big ol' lie. Going to kick her out today and apologize for oppressing her for years with love, long walks, and rotisserie chicken. PEACE OUT PUPPY ✌🏼

You guys are right, I'll let the dog that suffered in a mill for 9 years just continue to suffer without a home. Dogs definitely don't love their people, that's definitely not scientifically proven.

Tell me how adopting a dog/cat and loving it and giving it the best freaking life possible is unethical? Most dogs and cats wouldn't survive long on their own in the wild. They love companionship. You are insane, PWC2.

@PwC2 and PwC3 are crazy. Dogs have been domesticated over thousands of years. They no longer contain the ability to live independent of humans. You do realized that they would all die off if they weren't pets right? They would literally go extinct...

Some of them I heard have been gossiping about me. Should I reach out to them? This has been weighing heavy on my heart for a long time.
