I love animals. Cats and dogs, even rats, make great pets and companions. They
serve humans in great ways. One of these ways is through research. Numerous
medical breakthroughs have come from animal testing. In the case of taking
animals from shelters to use for testing, only about 25% of dogs and cats are
ever adopted into homes. What happens to the rest? They're euthanized. Why
not let research centers use them for a good cause?
I am so very, very pleased to hear that some peopletruly care for animals.
Animals have taught me a lotand I respect them dearly. I would like to
con-gradulate all the humans who are helping animals -these humans
deserve the highest of honor and res-pect. God Love the animals and all
the humble,good humans.
Cats and Dogs rule!
That's great to hear. I hope it all goes down well, because it deserves to. This
shouldn't be happening anywhere.xx
Post1--The animals which are taken into research labs would be better off being
killed before the people who work in these labs get their hands on them. Do you
have any idea what the students in the labs do to animals? They are not working
to cure anything. Animal research is a big business, and nothing more.Someday the people who have done this to these animals will face justice. If
not in this life, than the next.
I love BYU. Not many left wing loonies there.
The members of PETA need to look at every piece of research that has benefited
medicine and commit to not partake of any of those advances even if it costs
them their lives because that is what they are asking of all of us!
You need to be put into an easy maze with your reward at the end. I doubt any of
you lunatics could remember your way around twice! These animals provide
tremendous research on dementia. But...of course you would not remember to
mention that in your article. And...I am going to eat my turkey...my pet turkey
in the freezer for Thanksgiving! I will let you kknow the result early. It is
There are some people who, for whatever reason, just don't care about animals.
They see animals as nothing more than something to use, abuse, and make lame
jokes about.That's why it's good to know there are some people in
this world looking out for innocent animals.
How about showing the things that the research does for mankind??? How about
the 75% of animals not adopted out from the shelters? Why not invest your time
and money into adopting them and solving the problem? Because you're all
HYPOCRITES who talk but don't walk.
animals, I just care for people more. How many of these "activists" are
studying biology or are premed? These studies help save people's lives, perhaps
your father, your wife, your daughter. Animals should be treated with respect,
and that labs should follow a strict code of ethics. Testing should continue,
as I value human life more than other animals.
It is unfortunate that these people benefit from the very experiments that they
Shanme on you PETA flakes. You are putting and the rats ahead of the good and
benefit of human life. It is one thing to be kind to dog's, cat's, Horses etc.
But when you put desease carrying rats ahead of all mankind, you show very
little intelligence.Get a life. Do something that is turly useful for your
We should treat animals with respect because they are God's creations. But
remember that God gave animals to man to sustain and support man. Horses, oxen,
cattle, have provided transportation and farming manpower since the beginning.
If it were humans, it would be cruel slavery and torture and canniballism. So
we shouldn't exhalt animals to the same level of humans, but we should treat
them with respect and be wise and accountable stewards. As far as research, it
depends on the research. Just using good judgement and ethics should be
guidelines enough. PETA has good intentions but they are too extreme and I
don't like their M.O. On the other hand, animal abuse does exist and the people
responsible should be held accountable.
Nothing good comes out of animal testing laboratories unless you believe in BIG
PHARMA and that your doctor is a GOD, like apparently some of you here do.I am not an animal rights activist, but this testing of animals is just a big
business venture, making it pointless as well as cruel.I certainly do not
take "advantage" of any so-called medical miracle discovered through animal
testing. Natural healing is the REAL miracle.to PETA PEOPLE 10:32:Dementia can be prevented through purely natural means. It is just stupid to
do expensive research on a cure when prevention is possible for everyone. Lets
have enlightenment and not drugs.
It's true, they are not people. However, society is judged on how they treat the
most helpless in their care. I see the need for testing, but I don't see the
need for unnecessary testing. Life is sacred, no matter what form it takes and
I'd like to see testing animals cared for as much as possible.What
I'd like to see for those of you who are so willing to experiment is for you to
volunteer as guinea pigs for these experiments. Then we'd see how long you
would be for this; a little pain and you'd be crying out against it.To Biased: I do adopt my animals from shelters. You're the one who needs to
take a look at yourself. There is a lot of research that can be done
that does not require animal testing. If we use animals, let's use them
carefully and treat them as humanely as possible.
Animals can not speak ,they only have they owners ,who can help them, who can
speakloud for their rights.
Yea, dementia can be prevented through purely natural means...like falling over
dead before you hit 50! Do your research about the human brain. You people who
think everything can be healed with "natural" remedies, are the reason we see
cancer patients wait until they are terminal, because they took the advice from
some know-little holistic healer hooked on herbs, instead of getting early
treatment. Talk to a survivor.
How about testing the brain power of the owners who have animals which end up at
the shelter? Or, you can take the person who walks their dog past my lawn
everyday. When it craps, the owner suddenly has some beautiful sunset to gaze at
in the opposite direction, before walking away. There are some great animal
lovers and owners...but here in Utah there are a lot of idiots buying pets for
the wrong reason and they are often irresponsible. Just this morning a woman was
walking her yellow lab through City Creek. It crapped and she waited for all
cars to pass then just started her jog. If you confront a person like this
woman, they are abusive and defensive...even while breaking the law. We are
turning into a big city without a clue how to manage these problems. If bad
owners were fined...enough...there would be plenty of money to feed and house
all of the homeless pets. Bad owners are the problem..Test what little brain
they might have.
You people from PETA do realize that these animals are taken from kennels and
will be put down anyway, right?And you do realize that the medical
procedures and tests done on their bodies helps, oh....I don't know....people
LIKE YOU with improved medical procedures and abilities to help YOU live longer,
happier lives?You do realize that animals were made to bless the
lives of people and not the other way around, don't you?If not I've
just found the reason behind your foolishness....
I am an omnivore. There, I said it. I eat plants, and I eat animals. Just
like animals do. Animals eat animals:Cats eat animals.Dogs
eat animals.Rats eat animals.So, if I eat an animal I am no
worse than the animals peta worships.Plants are alive. They respond
to their environment:Flowers open when the sun comes up.Grass
moves from east to west following the sun.They also brighten our
day, put a smile on our face, make our world more livable and beautiful. I've
seen plants tattooed on people.Perhaps plants are sentient, too.I propose that peta stop eating plants as well as animals.
The video doesn't lie. Anyone who watches the undercover video knows that this
isn't science, this is cruelty.
So testing chemicals on animals?? um what if those chemicals kill the animals?
have you thought of that? animals have feelings to. So stop killing them. im
against animal cruelty. I love deers, dogs,cats,rats, ANY ANIMAL! so stop. you
guys are being dumb!!! i'll make a difference. if you guys don't.
Why would you test chemicals on animals? Why not care for the animal? Hey, i
love animals and I say that they should not be tested. Animals have feelings and
they dislike being used as a sample or holder for chemicals. Protest!!!!
People Eating Tasty Animals!!!!!!
What I think people are failing to notice is that this photo of a cat has been
photoshopped - there was a photo of "Robert" (The cat's name) on their site
recently that suddenly had eyes. Most of the time the photo they have used his
eyes have been badly painted over (you can see some of the yellow. It's not the first time that PETA has manipulated footage - there has been
video where they claim a monkey is begging for water, but the photo still
clearly shows a full bottle within easy reach. They claim Odessa sold cats to
Texas Tech University, producing a receipt that not only has missing
information, but uses a Midland Zip code as the address of said shelter (not to
mention that Lubbock is nearly 3 hours away from Odessa and has a shelter of its
own).Now, true animal cruelty I want to see get stopped; however,
PETA's producing misleading information. You want this stopped? - You MUST start
giving unedited footage - and all of it. That's the only way people will believe
you guys instead of thinking it's another publicity stunt.
people who test on animals should be tested on them selves. I think they should
be killed if they treat animals badly, animals havent done a thing to you and
all they want from you is love and respect and people in labs cant even do that.
ANIMALS HAVE FEELINGS!!!! SO LEAVE THEM ALONE!!!!!!!!
I think it is horrible that is happening to these animals. Please stop the
torture!! This is terrible that humans are doing this to animals. I am so
disappointed in the human race!!!! May you all suffer the way you are making
these animals suffer. Don't you see they are suffering?? Shame on YOU!!!!!!
