A Debate on “Pet” Ownership

Dear Colleagues:

In light of the significant response to the debate on eating meat and animal products, Opposing Views decided to have another debate on animal ethics and focused on the institution of “pets.”

I am arguing against the perpetuation of “pet” ownership; the Humane Society of the United States is arguing in favor of it.

I hope that you will stop by, read the entries, and offer your comments.

I am delighted that Opposing Views is taking an interest in animal ethics.
