47. Yes but name one organization that has done more for all animals?

It was because of PETA literature in the late 80's that I went vegetarian--some people are interested in that sort of education.

Meanwhile, while people are complaining about their outrageous campaigns, they are quietly making sure that fast food restaurants use only animals that are treated humanely in their deaths. They work quietly making sure that KFC in Canada is using chickens that aren't pumped full of steroids and antibiotics. They provide humane ways of euthanasia to shelters that put animals into a box, run a hose from the tailpipe of a truck to the box and gas them with carbon monoxide. They were the only organization that attempted and did rescue pitbulls after Katrina. They build doghouses and give free straw to chained dogs. They do lots of good stuff you never hear about.

But I agree that their outrageousness tends to turn a lot of people off. I'm not a fan myself but I can also recognize the good they do and am happy that someone is out there trying to do it. And frankly, when the FBI illegally investigates a non-profit organization (such as they did with PETA), I tend to stand with them a bit more.
