PETA Still Doggin' Paris and Britney

7/27/2007 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The folks at PETA are howling mad at Paris and Brit Brit over their recent purchases of ... wait for it ... MORE LITTLE DOGS!
Paris Hilton, Britney Spears
TMZ has obtained an email PETA sent to the ex-con/socialite AND the pop-star-turned-crazy-chick:

Dear Paris and Britney,

So, you have popped into a pet store to pick up some more doggie arm candy. Your impulse purchases of dogs encourage others to follow suit, no matter how ill-equipped they are to provide a decade or more of care for a little dog who has feelings and needs and who requires patience, veterinary care, and stimulation other than nightclub music and bar laughter. Also, for every pet store puppy purchased, a pound puppy dies (and a breeder -- probably somewhere in Arkansas or Missouri -- is rewarded for adding yet another litter to the pet overpopulation crisis). A California bill that would have required most dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered-and therefore would have helped reduce the taxpayer burden for disposing of (killing) homeless animals-was recently defeated by greedy breeders. Perhaps you and other vacuous stars need to tattoo "Don't buy while pound pups die" on your foreheads to remind each other of that home truth.

Very truly yours,

Ingrid E. Newkirk, President
PETA


*****
The "Very truly yours" was a nice touch! PETA may have a point ... Paris loves her new Chihuahua so much, she hasn't even named it yet.

what a joke - peta has the worst track record with pets in the world. ingrid newkirk needs to have "inhumane f**kbag" tattooed on her forehead! while i will admit that they are right - buying animals from pet stores is not helping the shelters&they are typically very ill and very rarely ready to be taken from their mothers - but peta off all organizations has no place to be opening their hypocritcal mouths! i agree with you all- lets remember the pictures and other evidence showing peta workers dumping carcasses in a dumpster.

but wait - they got away with that because there is still no one in this country willing to show that they have bigger balls than newkirks - no one has bothered to try and stop her - and as long as there are stars, pam & pink...etc, that support her she'll never get what is coming to her.

how sad- tmz you are the best - please don't give this quack job organization another minute of your time.

Umm, PETA is apparently not very educated on the animals they try and protect so vigorously. It’s PROVEN that dogs DO NOT have feelings.

Retards.

Dear PETA,

Last time I check the pound problems and homeless dogs didn't inclue a 4,000 dollar puppie that celbrities bought. Why don't you try to write your anonymous letters to state legislature and city officals; which, would be more valuable of your obvious endless time and actually make a differene as opposed to writting celbrities who are not even going to read your letter. Obviously those repsonsible for your oranization prefer to get therir organization read about on celbrity gossip pages rather than actually saving a dogs life...I also highly doubt that celebrities contribute to unwanted puppy mills and people abandoning their pets in the street of LA furthering the overcrowding of pounds.

That is such an unprofessional letter written by PETA. How dare them make a rude statement to something they know nothing about. No one knows the real reasons they bought their pets. They may breed them and have buyers (another words the new puppies from their new dogs will not go to the pound). They can't expect celebrities to buy all the dogs at the pound. Its a shame those dogs go to the pound, but they are not responsible for other peoples actions, only their own. It's like saying, "don't buy fancy food, save the money and spend it on generics from the grocery store because people are starving in the world." Let people make the choices they want for their lives and their dogs. I am not a fan of Paris or Britney, but at least give credit where it is due. PETA is unprofessional and looking for fame for vanity reasons. Why can't the PETA go adopt all the puppies ready to be killed? Hypocrits!

Ban stupid humans, not dogs    

Shelly, I have nothing against GOOD breeders. They are doing so to better the breed. You know how many purebreds have certain genetic health issues (bad hips, bad eyes, seizures, etc)? Well, GOOD breeders carefully screen their breeding stock to produce puppies that don't have these issues. Sadly, pet stores buy from puppy mills and shady breeders, who are only in it to make a buck. And in order to make the most money possible they aren't screening for genetic issues or in the case of puppy mills, they keep their stock in substandard conditions - just enough to keep them alive, but they keep pumping puppies out until their poor little bodies just give out on them.

And to the person (LuvTMZ, #20) who said celebrities will not get a mixed breed from the pound, that's not entirely true. Many celebs are very passionate about animal rescue. But even if they want to pay thousands for a purebred, they could at least be supporting good breeders who are in it for the right reason, as I explained above.

So sad that these dogs come from puppy mills. Horrible conditions and then they end up with the likes of Paris and Brit who use them as fashion accesories. Poor little creatures. It shouldn't be allowed. These two tramps can't even take care of themselves. PETA where are you?

I completely agree with with PETA on this; with all the dogs that need homes in shelters, they shouldn't be purchasing them through pet stores.
However, as I vegetarian for 15 years and a transitioning vegan, I have to say that I absolutely despise PETA. They are f'en hypocrites.

LISTEN TO THIS ABOUT PETA'S DOUBLE STANDARD:
PETA HAS KILLED MORE THAN 10,000 ANIMALS FROM 1998 TO 2003. "In 2003, PETA euthanized over 85 percent of the animals it took in," said a press release from the lobby, "finding adoptive homes for just 14 percent. By comparison, the Norfolk (Va.) SPCA found adoptive homes for 73 percent of its animals and Virginia Beach SPCA adopted out 66 percent."

AND LISTEN TO THIS ABOUT PETA'S PRESIDENT AND CO-FOUNDER:
A 2003 New Yorker profile included PETA top dog Ingrid Newkirk's story of how she became involved in animal rights after a shelter put down stray kittens she brought there. So she went to work for an animal shelter in the 1970s, where, she explained, "I would go to work early, before anyone got there, and I would just kill the animals myself. Because I couldn't stand to let them go through (other workers abusing the animals.) I MUST HAVE KILLED THOUSANDS OF THEM, sometimes dozens every day."

As much as I hate PETA, they've got a point. They treat the dogs like just another accessory!
