Ads Explain Why Animals Shouldn't Be Given as Gifts | PETA

Every year shelters are full of little pet puppies and kittens that were given as chrstmas presents to kids who swore and down and to god how much they will ‘take care of it’ and ‘clean up after it’.  Our intentions were good, but in the end it’s the poor animal who ends up neglected, and, even worse, in some shelter waiting its turn to be put to sleep.
