More On Pet Keeping

After our thorough talk during section last night about anthropomorphism and pet keeping, I was interested in other thoughts/arguments on this topic. I found an article on PETA's view on pet keeping and thought their argument had some very good points.

  1. While I agree with a lot of what PETA says in your provided link, the reality of PETA's business is not as pure as they portray it to be. In the first paragraph, PETA makes this statement "as a result, millions of unwanted animals are destroyed every year as 'surplus,'" apparently condemning the practice. However, PETA has been known to systematically kill the pets it "rescues" within days. Always take corporate statements with a grain of salt. Below are some articles detailing said activity.
