People in the South sure don't take care of their animals, that's for sure. It's up to a rag-tag bunch of kind souls to help the helpless.

Someone needs to put a stop to this insane group that calls itself PETA.

I do like rescue dogs, I've adopted an even dozen over the last 40 years. Two of these great friends are in my home right now, basically part of the family and well trained enough to be acceptable in any neighborhood. Adopt a good friend if you have the time and can give it a good and responsible home, folks. These critters have a lot of love to share!

"The AKC brand has been partly hollowed out: Purebred used to mean excellent; now it can as easily mean inbred." With this statement the author has shown a level of ignorance that overshadows any other point. In breeding and line breeding are important to a ANY competitive breeding program.

I am very suprised that the author would waste our time with this thinly veiled Pro-PETA article. All the hard work to put on this show and so much time is given to two PETA protesters? What tripe!

There is a senior citizen in a facility lonely and looking for a friend to talk. There is a child in an economically suppressed environment looking that needs a mentor/tutor. There is a prisoner who is in need of a guiding light to break the cycle. All to say, PETA priorities are out of alignment.
