PETA-likes Protest Paris and Brit

8/2/2007 5:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dressed as pop dog carriers Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, PETA protesters took to the streets of Hollywood today to cast light on the problems caused by buying pets through a breeder. But really, when you dispatch people dressed up as those two, no one really cares what your cause is!


According to PETA, for every dog or cat purchased from a breeder or pet store, another dog or cat on death row at an animal shelter must be killed. At the rate Paris and Britney are going, there won't be any pets left for the rest of us! Arf, y'all!

"Forget jail or rehab," PETA Director Daphna Nachminovitch says. "These selfish stars should do a stint in an animal shelter." Hopefully, they've already had all their shots.

What do those protestors think happens to dogs in pet stores that aren't bought? They're sent to shelters and put down if they're not taken to a home from there, just like any shelter dog. ALL dogs deserve loving homes!

If pets were spayed and neutered and not left stray the pounds would not be so full of unwanted animals. In China these animals would be eaten or made into clothing. Peta needs to choose better examples of the mistreament of animals. Brit's and Paris's animals will be better treated than most of the children on the earth!

I am so sick of PETA.. I completely sympathize with there cause, but buying a cat or dog is a personal choice.. Not everyone wants a dog or cat who is at a pound. As cruel as it may seem, most of the animals in shelters are not house broken or have bad temperments.. Thses celebs can afford there tiny dogs, let the rest of us buy the pound puppies.. Besides, I don't think anyone in there right mind wants to follow in either Paris or Britney's foot steps..

whatever    

Who cares whose buying the dogs as long as they can take care of them and give them a good home. Why are they protesting celebrities? Where does PETA get off judging these people. The Cookoos are PETA not people that are buying and caring for their animals.

I'm an animal lover and do whatever I can for the welfare of pets (I adopted THREE rescue dogs) but I'm SICK of PETA and their terrorism. So what if people get dogs from breeders? Sure it would be great to get a pet from a shelter, but trust me, they are a bit more work because you have to undo the damage that was done by someone else.

Leave these girls alone--at least they HAVE pets.

Celeb News by E!    

PETA Jr. spokesperson, Channing Estell of Oxford, Alabama has stated that this attack on Brit and Paris is simply a way to get peoples attention and let the public know that our organization takes what we stand for seriousely and will use whatever methods we have to to get that attention...within reason, of course. Channing Estell, who at 14 years old is already a well known JR. advocate of many causes, said, "We are not targeting these two girls, we are simply using the publicity that both of them have created for themselves to further our cause." Furthermore Estell states, "the stupid stunts pulled by these girls is way above and beyond any media negativity that our use of their likenesses will ever get them...if they cared about that they would have both stoped how they behave long ago."

LET ME JUST ADD ~ PETA SUCKS!

They are a joke to everyone, and you're right, mary anne, "They make all animal lovers and rescuers look like idiotic zealots."

I respect what you're doing, fostering animals, nice and low-key.
