Each night too many cats are put on death row. These cats are not put on death row by Action For Earth, but, mainly by government bodies. And, surprisingly enough, animal charities themselves.
It is usually the most well known, well respected and well funded animal charities which put cats (dogs and other animals) on death row. Or, kills them.
It is surprisingly common that the most well known animal charities tar themselves with the brush of killing pets who are; homeless, disabled or sick. PETA is probably the most well known animal charity, who campaigns publicly that it is against the killing of animals. Yet, it is not. PETA publicly states that they are in favour of killing pets who are homeless, arguing that no kill shelters are worse. This comes from a charity who receives around $60 million annually. An amount which could save the majority of animals that it kills.
They are not very transparent on the nature of their euthanasia policies. Silent are there social media accounts on the matter. Probably because there would be a backlash against them. And there funds would decline. Can these charities truly champion for animals when behind the scenes death is such a common feature. Euthanize, the short term easy solution, rather than putting the funds and the efforts into solving the problem long term.
To euthanize these pets is not only immoral, it simply doesn't work. If it did, then decades of killing homeless pets would have worked by now. It hasn't. Advocating that a kill-policy works for homeless pets is like a hamster running around a wheel, the wheel is moving, but it's not going anywhere. While major animal charities such as PETA, campaign against no-kill shelters, they actually just encourage kill shelters and people to dump their pets in kill shelters.
If animal charities are to be taken seriously as a champion for animals and animal rights, then, they must practice what they preach. Meaning, saving cats on death row. If they do not, then how can they perused people to stop eating meat? They can't. Because commonly you see on articles is that 'If PETA can kill pets, then why can't I eat animals which have been killed for food?'
