I don't like Peta for multiple reasons myself... They don't try to adopt out the animals they 'rescue'. Last year, from government records, they only adopted out a total of 7 animals out of a little over 2,000. They get around, what was it... 7 million? Ish dollars a year on budget, and spend it on big freezers for dead bodies and cremating services. They donate money to federally convicted arsonists groups, who have burned down research labs among other things. The co-founder lady Newkirk took away a few blind people's seeing eye dogs. The list goes on... The lady's 'motto' is to rid of milk, eggs, fur, etc etc including pet ownership... In short she doesn't want ANY animals around. So their pet rescue mission statement is completely out of place. = / Sadly many people do still believe in them.

I've never liked PETA... ever. I guess they are protesting the use of exotic animals in the Kraft commercials...are you kidding me? Some people have too much time on their hands or sniffed too many sharpies. Just my two cents.

A Dog looks up to a man,
A cat looks down on a man,
But a patient horse looks a man in the eye and sees him as an equal

I said crack heads Country. It was a figure of speech not meant to be taken literally. Country likes to cause trouble : )

I think some people like to call names then back pedal about it.

I don't think she back pedaled about the name calling.
I think she clarified the name calling.
