PETA says, “Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have interests in leading their own lives, therefore they are not ours to use, for experimentation, food, clothing, entertainment or any other reason”.

Some reasons or rumours why people hate PETA

  • They don’t believe people should have pets.

That is breeding animals to be kept and regarding them as pets. But the fact is PETA does not oppose people who are kind to animals or pets who treat well with food, care, love at home.

  • They are against animal breeders.

PETA is absolutely opposed to all breeding up to dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, because they aren’t enough homes for them. But the fact is they are against breeders who breed animals for their selfishness or for experimentation.

  • They don’t believe zoos should exist.

PETA says, even in the best zoos, under best condition, a lifetime of captivity is no life at all for wild animals. But the only effective and sustainable way to help endangered species is to protect their natural habitat, but the massively expensive breeding program of zoos divert money from genuine conservation projects.
