"I thought the whole point of animal protection and rights is to keep the animal safe (but not obliterate them in the process)."That's what most people think. That is not, however, what PETA stands for. They believe that the "institution" of pet ownership and of domestication is imoral and should be eliminated. They support the banning of breeding dogs and of owning pitbulls, because they believe that humans do not have right to exercise ownership over other living beings. They think having a pet is wrong. Bottom line.
"Are there truly people now running PETA that believe it is better to kill all the animals who MIGHT have a bad outcome instead of working to save them and produce the best outcome possible?" Yes! Not only people running it now, but the founder of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk, has said just that. They believe that the 90%+ kill rate at their "shelter" is necessary because dogs are better off dead than being forced into what they believe is slavery- being owned by a human. They honestly think they are freeing dogs from an unjust and terrible life sleeping on someone's couch because they believe it is slavery.

PG County is a dump for many reasons, and county commissioners and power-hungry bureaucrats seem to think that they can solve its problems by just shooing away all the pesky "other people" (you know, THOSE people, the people we don't want in our community, the type of people who own pit bulls). The way dogs look is not the problem- the dogs aren't the ones committing muggings and rapes, the dogs aren't responsible for the desolation and urban sprawl, it's not the dog's fault that, even with a high-end state college in the county, no one wants to go there because it's a pit.

@wnkwnkndgndg People have run screaming from all of the boxers my parents have owned at least once because "OMG IT'S A PITBULL!!!!" People have also done that to their Boston Terrier.

The reason many people- shelters, veterinary offices, groomers, etc.- do not label dogs as "general mixes," or "Heinz 57" is because the software they use simply does not have that option- they are forced to attempt to identify a breed. They have to pick something, anything, and a dog is stuck with a label, more or less for the rest of its life. It's ridiculous.
