these nuts believe it is more merciful to kill an animal than to permit it to be “owned” by a human
there was an expose here in DC some years ago about how the PETA-run shelter euthanized animals before they could be claimed by families that had applied to adopt them. Adopters would apply on the weekend, submit the paperwork, and then come back Monday and the animal was dead

Oh, sure. The word “pet” is no longer permitted in those circles. Last summer I drove across Vermont and noticed that the St. Johnsbury Pet Hospital I drive by has been renamed the Companion Animal Hospital.
I guess it’s OK if a dog and a person live in the same house together, as long as they have equal rights, and neither of them demeans the other.
