Are you for or against PETA?
"Perhaps the most sickening aspect of PETA's assault on the No Kill movement is that it blocks groups from rescuing animals in high-kill shelters. Winograd's model legislation makes it illegal to kill a shelter animal unless "rescue groups have been contacted and are not willing to save the animal."
"Winograd succeeded with the legislation in California: "Before this, only about 12,000 animals were being transferred from shelters to rescue groups statewide per year. That number now stands at almost 60,000.
"But when we tried to pass a similar law in Florida last year, PETA fought against it and won."
Think about this. You have rescuers ready and willing to save animals from certain death in a shelter, and PETA is fighting to deny them access."
