PETA is rounding up healthy community cats and kittens and taking them to the police-run pound to be killed.
Yesterday, I reported how PETA is trying to kill pit bulls in shelters across the country. Now they are trying to ensure that “feral” cats continue to be killed in New York.
Washington, D.C. is not only considering a plan to round up and kill thousands of cats, but it is proposing a wholesale slaughter of geese and other animals, as well as trees and plants. On September 18, a City Council committee will take the issue up and my letter, written on behalf of the No Kill Advocacy Center, opposing the plan is here.
PETA has once again shown its true colors, this time aligning itself with a hunting organization in order to promote the round up and killing of community cats.
If we reformed shelters, SNR wouldn’t be the first choice for socialized community cats: redemption and adoption would be. It would and should, however, remain the last, because killing should never be a choice at all.
