PETA believes that the California shelter is doing an excellent job, but that there should be more emphasis placed on a “homeless animal tragedy.”
The Non-Profit Organization for the Protection of Animals, also known as PETA, Fought Against the Decision of a California Animal Shelter to Reject Potential Pet Adopters Due to Their Opinions on Gun Control PETA fought against the decision of a California animal shelter to reject potential pet adoptees due PETA was victorious in the battle they fought.
On their website, they declare, “We do not support persons who claim that the 2nd amendment guarantees them the right to own assault weapons.” This stance is contrary to what they believe. They have a policy that states, “We will not adopt a pet to you if your views do not line with ours.”
The shelter stated that if your primary opinion is that teachers should have firearms, there is no possibility that you will be accepted to adopt from them. If you are a foster parent and think that guns should be legal, we will have our dogs and cats picked up if you decide to return them to us. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has issued a warning to the public that individuals who make fraudulent membership claims to the organization run the risk of being sued for fraud.
Catie Cryar, an assistant manager at PETA, was quoted as saying to the media about the shelter, “We know they do fantastic work and are sure that they have the best intentions.” According to Cryar, “But from PETA’s standpoint, because there is a crisis involving homeless animals, what counts is that adopted animals are treated appropriately and cared for.”
