PETA performs the heartbreaking task of euthanizing animals who are unwanted for one reason or another. Front groups for animal-exploiting industries seize on this aspect of our work to further their agenda.

The TROLLS!

"One of these groups is the disingenuously named Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), which is run by lobbyist Richard Berman and is funded by KFC, Outback Steakhouse, Philip Morris, cattle ranchers, and other companies who cruelly kill millions of healthy animals every year—and who bring them into this world just to kill them. The CCF devotes considerable manpower, time, and money in an attempt to make people who care about animals believe false and misleading information about PETA's work."

Thank you for posting this, Cher. I hope the attackers who have been fueled by the misinformation recently splashed across the media will read every word of this and reconsider a very valuable organization. It's sad that PETA has even been put in the position where they need to defend themselves for the wonderful work that they do. This will definitely be shared widely by me.

Thank you for this, Cher - unless folks have worked with shelters and unwanted animals they cannot know the stress, strain or heartbreak involved.

Yes, PETA was slapped with some bad press. I can't make excuses, nor will I try to defend these stories. What I do know is, animals would be in a far more sorry state without this organization.

From PERSONAL EXPERIENCE....I can attest that PETA LIES! This is my eyewitness experience...hearing them SLANDER some of the most caring people I know....they LIED and I'll never forget it.

I will never give them money again!

Well? You have to use some common sense- you think PETA makes more money from donations and some giant agenda to lie-

or giant corporations which stand to loose billions they profit from exploiting, experimenting on and abusing animals- such as KFC, Outback Steakhouse, Philip Morris, cattle ranchers.

Who makes thousands, and who makes BILLIONS? Who would have more of an "AGENDA"?

Noted and signed...thanks Cher. I am happy to say I'm a PETA member and while I don't always agree with their position on a few issues, I always understand their position. At the end of the day, I believe their agenda, ultimately, is to help animals.

I'm a PETA member and I stand by their organization. As Thomas P has mentioned, they may be a bit extreme when it comes to certain issues, however I believe that they always have the animals best interest at heart and I will continue to donate to them :-)

Thank you Cher & Nyack for this information. I am a Peta member & have heard conflicting info back & forth. The bottom line is, animals need as much help as possible & while this may not be a perfect organization, I know animals are being helped as well. Thanks Sara for sending ~~~

Thanks for sharing this for everyone, Cher. I have been an avid PETA member for a long time and receive their letters and alerts weekly and even in the 'snail mail' with activist participation always in all areas. I will stand by PETA.

I have been a member of PETA for many years. This bad press is unjustified.

I help from time to time and know first hand how heartbreaking shelter life can be how man is so raw and cruel fr jis own selfishness we are a "throw away society" and we need to find a way back to being completely humane and kind towards animals and wildlife and any living thing that won't hurt us with exception of the hateful people in this human race our mission is large but possible
