If you were looking at job listings on the HSUS magazine website, saw this one for a PETA policy director and got all excited to apply, you are going to have all the disappoint. First off, you won’t be finding homes for 6 – 8 million animals each year. Possibly 6 or 8 animals, but I wouldn’t count on it. Secondly, your new employer doesn’t actually find homes for homeless pets – they kill them, even going so far as to collect them from shelters and veterinarians in other states. Sometimes they stalk owned pets right there in Virginia, wait until the owners leave for work, then steal the pets for killing. A small percentage of the animals PETA logs in each year get transferred to other facilities which also kill pets but most are killed at the PETA facility or in the van on the way there. And lastly, I sure hope you don’t like pitbulls even a teensy bit. Because awkward.
But at least the tech posting the ad online has a sense of humor, placing it alongside a link to “The Flip Side of Fatigue”.
Alex, I’ll take Places to Work When You Have Zero Fucks Left to Give about Animals.
