The lack of genetic diversity caused by inbreeding greatly increases the likelihood that recessive genes, which cause debilitating afflictions, will be passed along to puppies. As a result, roughly one in four purebred dogs suffers from serious congenital defects, such as hypothyroidism, epilepsy, cataracts, allergies, heart disease and hip dysplasia - a disease that can lead to crippling, lameness and painful arthritis.

Celebrating Cruelty-Free Fashion at Mahiki

The idea that fur is springing into fashion again is absurd, even though that's the line the fur trade has tried to sell to reporters for more than a decade. You may see more fur on the catwalk, but that's because fur is so cheap that furriers have resorted to paying designers to use it. Its presence on the catwalk does not reflect what people are wearing on the high street.

Harrods' Pet Kingdom will shut its doors for the last time at the end of the month, ending nearly 100 years of shameful animal exploitation, and here at PETA, we couldn't be happier to hear it. In its time, Harrods has flogged every species of animal for the right price

Abolish Your Meat Habit in 2014

Oprah Winfrey once said that the start of a new year offers "another chance for us to get it right". One way that we can "get it right" in the year ahead - whether our goal is to improve our health, reduce our ecological footprint or help end the exploitation of others - is to stop eating animals.

This Holiday Season, Don't Buy Into Cruelty

If the label says, "angora" or "wool" or "leather", please remember that the garment began as a living being - and leave it on the shelf. The only way to ensure that a piece of clothing (or anything else for that matter) is cruelty-free is to shop animal-free.

A Response to Princess Anne - You Can't Help Horses by Eating Them

Mimi Bekhechi | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK
Mimi Bekhechi

The Princess Royal's argument, which she put forward in a speech to the charity World Horse Welfare, is that people would look after their horses more carefully if they were planning to turn them into steaks and burgers later on. However, in our experience, any animal used for food is much more likely to be treated with disrespect than with respect. Given the regular exposés of mistreated pigs and chickens raised for food, it's absurd to think people would take better care of horses if there were a market for their meat.

When It Comes to Fur, Choose Compassion

Disgraced former MP Mark Oaten attempts to justify the unjustifiable - the cruel killing of animals for their fur - by calling the decision to purchase fur a "personal choice". Some things, of course, are a matter of choice - I still listen to 80s music - some things, however, are simply right or wrong.

It's not just here in the UK that we see a chipping away of personal freedom. The USA has always been proud to consider itself the land of the free, so it is ironic that customer choice seems to have suffered a significant blow in West Hollywood of all places.
