While grassroots advocacy has promoted change, there have been dark forces afoot, masquerading as animal rights organizations and authorities. Not only do they not seek to save the lives of the dogs and cats we love and value, they actually seek to end those lives and worse yet, to make dogs and cats go extinct. PETA may be the acronym for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, but the organization is better described as Pursuing Extinction for Those Animals. Whether you consider yourself an animal advocate, an animal lover or you are just concerned about the power wielded by influence and big money related to animals in our society, you must read "Welcome Home."
If we are ever to overcome the forces in our country which work against our core values related to companion animals, we must be prepared to defend those values while making the best possible decisions for the animals with whom we share our homes and lives - to our mutual benefit.

Winograd also discusses PETA's horrific position on domesticated dogs and cats at length and in great detail. It was a real eye-opener for me and I will never be able to look at PETA the same again, no matter what good they do for animals in other areas.
Of particular interest to me was a wonderful chapter on vegan dogs and cats. The Winograds probably have more experience and have devoted more time thinking through where and how domesticated "pets" fit into AR theory, and this book clearly highlights that. And as with all of their works, this book is more great education on sheltering.
