“People need to know that there is no safe way to dye a dog or any other animal,” a spokesperson from PETA said in an interview.
While our four-legged best friends appear to be happy and energetic when we ask them to do things for us, to go beyond the line and perform acts such as dying them with whatever color we want in the name of pleasuring ourselves is unacceptable and can be considered to be worse than any act an animal is capable of doing. -Kami Media
