PETA Shames Medina Co for No Longer Killing Cats


Allegra, a cat at the Medina Co SPCA, judges your stupidity. Allegra, a cat at the Medina Co SPCA, judges your stupidity.

PETA kills animals – mainly dogs and cats in need of love, temporary sheltering and new homes.  But the organization goes a step further by encouraging and rewarding (with vegan cookie gift baskets) municipalities that threaten to kill pets and shaming those that implement changes designed to eliminate needless killing.

Such is the case with Medina County, Ohio, where officials were pressured by the so-called irresponsible public into finally giving up the gas chamber which they’d been using to kill most of the cats impounded at the shelter.  The county stopped accepting cats and entered into an agreement with the Medina Co SPCA to take over cat sheltering from the county late last year.

  1. I support PETA for never shrinking away from difficult issues, including taking on the heartbreaking work of providing a peaceful, painless, and dignified release through euthanasia for animals who are suffering and have nowhere else to go.

    Most of the animals PETA takes in aren’t the kind of animals people are seeking out for “pets.” They are dogs who are aggressive and unadoptable because they have been kept chained their entire lives; feral cats with contagious diseases; animals who are wracked with cancer; elderly animals who have no quality of life and whose desperate guardians brought them to PETA because they can’t afford to pay a vet to euthanize them; and the list goes on.

    PETA pours its time and money into stopping animal homelessness at its source. Last year alone, they spayed and neutered more than 11,000 dogs and cats at little to no cost to their guardians, preventing countless animals from being born only to end up homeless. They deliver warm, straw-filled doghouses to chained dogs; provide free vet care; educate the public about the need to spay, neuter and adopt through ads and PSAs, and more.
