Jane Lynch Complains About Dog Breeding

If you bought your pet from a store or a breeder, Jane Lynch (known from TV show Glee) just might hunt you down and blame you for murder. As E! report:

The funny lady is urging the USA Network to air a new PETA television PSA during its upcoming coverage of the famed Westminster Dog Show. "Although I played an ambitious dog trainer in Best in Show, in real life I wouldn't go near the Westminster Dog Show because it promotes the breeding of animals even as millions are dying for homes in shelters," Lynch writes in a letter to the network. The PSA shows pet owners walking, playing and riding in cars with dogs that are in body bags, representing the "more than 4 million animals who must be euthanized each year because of a lack of good homes," Lynch also writes. The PSA closes with the question, "If you buy a dog, what will you do with the shelter dog you kill?"


I have a rabbit that I adopted from the animal shelter and had a cat from a breeder, both were love at first sight. So I really don’t care whether someone buy or adopt. In my opinion, the “killers” in this situation are the people who buy pets then dispose them for being “too much hassle” without bothering to find them a good home.

If someone wants to adopt a puppy, go get one. If someone wants to buy a puppy, then go buy one. End of story. People have their own reasons and they’re not “killers “ or “saints” for doing so. Like how someone choose to pay to have sex with a stripper at a club versus a malnutritioned crack whore loitering on the street. Is he a “killer” because he didn’t support the crack whore who is on the verge of her death? Well, prostitutes are already dead on the inside, so I guess that was a bad example.

  1. "If you buy a dog, what will you do with the shelter dog you kill?" - that's such BS. Go after lazy, irresponsible people that don't take care of their pets, not everyone who wants a new puppy (like me!)

    And great stripper/crack whore example :p

  2. I completely agree with you. I bought both of my dogs from breeders and I actually feel kinda guilty about it, so I donate money to the humane society. But I love my puppies and I'm very glad I got them! If Jane Lynch is such an outspoken animal rights person, why does she eat animals? Are only the cute little doggies and kitties worth saving?

  3. I'm on the fence with this issue. After seeing how dogs are bred at puppy farms it really disturbs me. I personally wouldn't buy purebred pets or shop at a pet store but then who will take cre of those animals. I think the bigger problem is people who don't get their animals fixed. I love Jane Lynch on Glee! xo Emily

  4. I mean, in some ways I kinda understand it..its really sad the situation of the sheltered animals...but I dont think is right to call killer to someone just because they didn´t adopt one...its on a persons choice..but then you know there are some human beings with kinda radical points of view

  5. i don't know how i feel about this! i guess i can see what she's saying, but what if you want a pure breed?!? its very hard to find one in the bound. :P

  6. Yeah, calling someone a killer for choosing to buy a pet is a farfetched leap of logic.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Completely agree! She is making quite a leap with that argument...

  8. your example is priceless, haha! but i agree with you - who caresss...I feel like there are way bigger problems she could be harping on about.

  9. Hmm this is a tough issue because there really isn't a right or wrong answer. It is inhumane how animals are bred and cooped up in cages at pet stores, but if no one buys them, then what's going to happen to all of them?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yeah, her reasoning seems quite off to me. Next, she'll be telling people to adopt children, instead of giving birth to their own, to save all the starving kiddies in Africa and Asia. Problems should be solved at their root, i.e. with those abandoning their pets and not the other way round.

  11. I'd rather get a pet from a shelter, but that's just me. Did you hear about the 100 sled dogs that were shot in Whistler because their owner didn't want them anymore? It made me sick to my stomach.

  12. Calling people who don't adopt "Killers" is a little harsh but I get what she's saying. It's hard though, because I've always wanted a Pug, or a Chow Chow, and I would definitely have to get one from a breeder. So does tht make me a bad person? I adopted both my cats, but I think the cat population is far more out of hnad than the dog one. All in all, it's a personal choice I guess.

  13. i'm going to say something, and people aren't going to like it. but i hate peta. not what they stand for, but their methods and how they talk to people. making people feel like shit about themselves isn't going to promote change. educating and raising awareness in a positive way that makes the listener feel informed as opposed to stupid promotes healthy change. anyway. peta can blow me. i love my pup.

  15. i'm sorry but i understand that women even though i never heard of her. Maybe where you live, animals without shelters are not a problem but where I live they are, there are so many. I do believe that pure breed animals are sweet and nice but so is the animal that doesn't have a home the only difference is that he is ''not pure''. I don't think there should be a law, but people should understand that is a great thing to addopt rather than spend fortunes on pure breed and if you take care care of him he will look so beautiful and you will feel like you ''saved a life''.
    There are many people who say that they love animals and make videos visiting animal shelters and cry saying that they feel so sorry for them and after a month they buy a pure breed dog (Take Anna Saconne for example).

  16. Interesting post, thanks for sharing. And I agree with you that the worst ones are those who dispose them for being “too much hassle” .

  17. Sadly we have a lot of pets returned to the SPCA after Christmas once owners realise its not that easy taking care of one.

  18. I don't usually watch glee but i jane lynch as that terror coach right?...

    Oh well am not into pets but ur right everyone has its own reason for buying one or keeping them!

  19. I so agree with you! I hate when people get a pet and then decide they can't handle it and just give it away. Getting a pet is a commitment. If you're going to easily change your mind, then do bother getting one in the first place!

  20. Hmmmm what an interesting topic. Although I'm getting quite distracted by her dress. That's really not a good dress to wear. It is if you want to hide all your curves and create wide hips...

  21. I agree with you. It's the people who don't take of their animals who should be addressed. And kicked in the knee-caps. Not attack the responsible pet owners, no matter if the pet is bought or adopted. I adopted my African Grey & cat... but still have nothing against buying since my other bird comes from a pet store. PETA sometimes takes such extreme stances that they push away people from the main issue which is caring for animals.

  22. I support her cause but that being said...there are some adorable breeds out there. I don't know if you heard what happened to the poor dogs in Whistler...so terrible :(

    On a different note, check out my blog if you want. I am doing a giveaway!

  23. That's just very wrong of her to say that and nobody should ever accuse someone who bought a dog/pet from a pet store or breeder of murder. That's ludicrous. What would she say about people like me who eat meat? That I killed the animal? She's so fucking stupid to make such a hurtful comment like that because we had two family dogs from breeders, I bought a gerbil from a pet store and my guinea pig was adopted from Craigslist. They were all given a loving home with much love. Yes, the reality is animals are put down at shelters but that has little to do with breeders and such. There will always be breeders and animals being sold at pet stores.

  24. I agree with you, her statement was a little too extreme.

  25. I'm back!
    I support PETA's mission, but they lose me when they come out with such outlandish statements. I've never adopted from a shelter, but I've taken in plenty of strays. I bought the dog I have now...maybe I saved him from going to a bad home.

  26. While we're talking about unattainable ideals - In a perfect world there'd be no dogs to adopt in the first place since they'd all have loving homes :\

    I say so long you take proper care of the dog you have, there's nothing wrong with buying a dog at a reputable pet shop.

  27. I support her.. Some people don't know what kind of complication dogs might have complication in the future

  28. I adore animals and I think animal cruelty is horrific. I would love to do anything in my power to protect innocent animals from terrible treatment. However isn't it interesting how some begin to care more about animals than people? I'm sure with her kind of money she could help a lot of starving people, but she chooses to judge us for where we buy our pets?

  29. I agree that people should consider pros and cons before getting a pet be it purebred or shelter. Too many people get them cause they're cute and then abandon them for various reasons. Boo!
