PETA tells Paris Hilton pets aren’t accessories


Of all the horrible, horrible things about Paris Hilton (and there are many from which to choose) the worst thing about her is her penchant for collecting animals. And I don’t mean she adopts a lot of unwanted dogs from the pound. Paris pays exorbitant amounts of money for trendy novelty pets which she discards as soon as they are no longer new and trendy to her.

There are tons of reports of Paris’ animal collecting – so many in fact that you might logically believe some of them are untrue. And that may be, but the thing is, she really has bought – or tried to buy – so many animals and done so many ridiculous things in regards to her animals, that it’s impossible to tell. And frankly because she is so incredibly stupid and selfish, I tend to assume the stories are true until proven otherwise. Boyfriend Doug Reinhardt bought her a a $10,000 Pomeranian in Japan. She honest for goodness tried to buy a cheetah. She’s owned a kinkajou and a monkey. The monkey was taken away by authorities because it bit her so many times. And she admitted on Ellen DeGeneres’ show that she has 17 dogs – because they keep having babies.

So it comes as absolutely no surprise that three days after the Daily Mail runs a story about the trendy new “it” pet, micro pigs (somehow the British micro pig is so much cuter a name than the American mini pig), it’s announced that Paris has purchased one of the pigs and will take possession soon. Not surprisingly, PETA has stepped in to chide Paris.

PETA has unleashed a brutal attack against Paris Hilton for buying a pet mini-pig recently, claiming she’s setting a “wretched example” by treating animals like they’re “as disposable as her friends and fiances .”

PETA says of Paris: “The Chihuahuas, ferrets, and kinkajous she’s paraded through her home in the past were not accessories, and pot-bellied pigs aren’t either.”

The good news: Paris told us she doesn’t think she’ll get swine flu because she doesn’t eat pork.

All I can say is, save your breath PETA. I know your heart is in the right place on this one, but Paris is a certifiable sociopath. At least according to the editor of Page Six, who I will forevermore be considered correct in all things, simply for saying this. Paris has been blamed for the epidemic of abandoned Chihuahuas, after she made them the trendy “it” pet without showing any responsibility towards them. In fact a little over a year ago the Puppy Store on Melrose Avenue refused to sell her a pooch. Yay! All I can say is more animal owners, breeders, and shelters should follow their lead. Animals are living, breathing creatures with a right to be treated decently. They are not a Tiffany bracelet. They poop. The have fur balls. You have to really love the buggers to deal with the bad stuff. Paris’ collecting of living creatures is disgusting. I’m sure she’s breaking some kind of city ordinance by now, between all those dogs and God knows what else. I’d be great if some authority would step in.

And just to help her out, I’ll take the micro pig off her hands. I’m currently pet-less, and adore curly tails.

Here are some older pictures of Paris with her menagerie.

    how do we know she doesn’t look after them? maybe she really is an animal person

  2. Praise St. Angie! says:

    rose, there have been too many stories about her mistreatment of her pets…not the least of which was her house staff finding a dead dog in her closet. (one that she allegedly thought was too difficult to train.)

    don’t know how many stories are true, but there are too many to not believe at least some of it.

  3. Firestarter says:

    @Rose- It has been reported by many that she doesn’t take proper care of her pets, this by both friends and family. How can she possibly be taking good care of her zoo? I have cats and dogs and I get to take maybe one 10 day trip per year to visit my family in San Francisco. She is constantly jet setting and partying and if you consider having a maid feed and water them taking care of them, that isn’t taking care of them how they are supposed to be. House pets, like humans, require attention, love and daily care, all of which I can guarantee you, Paris is not doing, when she is rarely at home.

    I usually hate PETA, but on thisd one,I agree. They are not toys or accessories. They are living, breathing creatures!

  4. Obvious says:

    *sigh* I try so hard to like PETA at times like this but i can’t. especially when you realize (at least according to the article on the mini/micro pigs) that they are not pot bellied pigs which grow to a fair size. these stay tiny, around the size of a young pot bellied pig.

    Maybe once PETA gets its facts straight and stop terrifying children and blasting everyone (i’m surprised I didn’t get a letter for not holding a funeral for the moth a vaccumed up the other day) i will continue to despise you-even for blasting PH lie she so heartily deserved.

  5. Rae says:

    Rose, I don’t doubt that she might love her dogs. However, she also needs to be a responsible pet owner. Which includes spaying and neutering. I can’t believe she allows her dogs to breed willy-nilly! She’s a hoarder, plain and simple. I, too, am shocked that the local authorities have not already done something about this.

  6. BitterBetty says:

    Praise St. Angie, if that story is true I hope to god that bitch dies in a fire!

  7. Corina says:

    Honestly the most surprising part of this article to me was that Paris knows that swine relates to pork!

  8. GatsbyGal says:

    Paris is insane. If she were your “average” person, without all her wealth and fame, she’d be that socially inept shut-in who keeps too many dogs in her apartment and who finally gets the cops called on her because her neighbors complain about the stench of crap and rotting puppy carcases.

  9. Amber Smith says:

    Typically I am not fond of PETA, but I do have to agree with them on this issue. For all the good it will do — I doubt Paris will listen.

  10. Lindsay says:

    Rose – she doesn’t take care of them, Animal Control has stepped in a few times. She has her pets for awhile, gets bored, then gives them away.
    - The cages for the kinkajou and monkey were not sufficent to meet their needs (no one should own monkeys anyway… I’m glad it repeatedly bit her until it was taken from her.)
    - LA authorities stepped in and wrote her up for the number of dogs she had and she “took them to a ranch.”
    - A magazine reporter went to her house for an interview and wrote there were rows of dog kennels stacked 3 or 4 on top of one another, that they probably were in for an extended period while she was shopping, partying, and being a “business woman.”
    - She gets rid of them so fast, except Tinkerbell she had her for a while but ended up giving her away too. I do think she loved that dog but was ignorant about the care a Chihuahua, especially a “tea cup / runt”, needs.
    -Isn’t home enough to give all those animals enough attention.
    - She takes her dogs out in inappropriate purses rather than dog carriers and exposed quite a few Chihuahuas to stressful situations and environment and flashing lights and constant camera flashes. Which is bad for almost any animal but Chihuahuas are anxious dogs prone to seizures and shaking when stressed.
    - Lost a few because she was careless

    The list goes on and on of non rumor criticisms from PETA and veterinarians, which is why she was denied a puppy by the pet store.

    Not to mention the rumor that has followed her for years that her chihuahuas would be forgotten, get shut in her closet for days, and die on more than one occasion.

    She doesn’t care about the animals, common sense, or the rules. She tried to buy a cheetah! She has repeated this behavior for years. When people step in she pays the fine and does what they ask. Then goes out and does the same thing again. She is spoiled, stupid, and feels entitled to whatever she wants regardless of the welfare of the animals.

    They should do what they do to animal hoarders and make her give up the animals she has and get a court order banning her from getting any new pets for years.

    Firestarter: I hear you. We’re going away for Thanksgiving week, and finding someone trustworthy to look after all our critters while we’re away is a horrendous effort. No wonder we never go anywhere. (Ps: I’m also from SF, originally.)

    As for Paris, she’s a self-entitled whore who will never truly “get” how much we all despise her, which is probably the most infuriating aspect to all of this.

  12. lanette says:

    PETA is the reason i eat more meat.

  13. Praise St. Angie! says:

    Lindsay, nice post.

    I knew about some of that but jeez louise some of that other stuff is MESSED UP.

  14. TwinkleToes says:

    Awww. The dogs don’t realize you’re ugly just like people who are ugly.

  15. Buzzaroo says:

    Thank god she hasn’t been knocked up yet, that’s all I can say.

  16. Charity is Chic says:

    Now if only they could tell some of these celebrity moms that their children aren’t accessories either.

  17. Firestarter says:

    Fat Elvis- I know. finding someone is terrible. I have a couple who will come by for the cats once per day, but I have to board my pups, since I cannot have them cooped up all day. I hate leaving my pets, and that is the trouble with having multiples, they are like kids and reduce your freedom greatly!

    Yay SF natives!

  18. fizXgirl314 says:

    Is it really wrong that I want a micro pig of my own? gawd, I really want one like NOW! how fucking adorable!!!

  19. MonicaBee says:

    I also have SEVERAL pets (i.e., 5 dogs, 6 cats & a ferret!), but I am fortunate that my brother loves my pets and will stay here with them when I have to leave. One of my dogs has become “special needs” recently and CANNOT be left alone for more than a couple of hours at a time. If I go away for more than a day or so, I will normally spend at least an hour crying before I leave. I wish I could take them all with me.

    I normally LOATHE PeTA, but I found their comments rather amusing and spot on. I kind of wonder how PH has gotten away with this animal neglect for as long as she has. Then I remember who she is (nobody, IMO) and still, nothing makes sense. LOL

    My little 18 year old sister gave me Paris Hilton perfume for XMas last year. It is still in its original box, in a bag somewhere in my spare room. I’ve not touched it, although I’m sure it smells lovely. It’s on principle, I guess.

  20. Bete says:

    I’m not a big PETA fan. They’re usually oppressive, but this time they have gotten their example right. Paris Hilton is just a beastly brat in need of a brain transplant.

  21. Jazz says:

    I usually dislike PETA but my dislike of Paris Hilton is greater so I’ve got to agree with them here.

  22. Praise St. Angie! says:

    to MonicaBee…I’d bet that it doesn’t smell lovely…

    I was waiting for a friend in CVS and decided to check out the perfumes they carry. Just for giggles, I decided to take a whiff of one of hers, and I literally gagged.

    it smells like the cheapest (class, not price) perfume that you could buy…cloying and just…well, cheap. Think “designer imposters” combined with some ammonia.

    granted, that was only one of her scents, but it reeked.

  23. Kathie says:

    Say what you will about Peta they step up to the plate and take the heat for the weird things they do and say. Nice comment lanette, really? Peta is the reason you eat more meat? How sad that you let an organization run your life that way. They need to remove all animals from Paris’s care period and there needs to be an injunction against her getting any more.

  24. bollywoodhunk says:

    but she love only on animals or human i know her fault so she is not connect with renalt…..

  25. Laurel says:

    Why hasn’t animal control gone to her step by now? She should have to go to court to see if she’s even fit to keep the animals she has, let alone a new mini pig! This is total BS, instead of pointing fingers and talking about it, someone take action! Of course, I personally can’t do anything, but her said “friends and family” who are aware should do something, or just the authorities see to it.

  26. Jasmine says:

    These animals will have a fantastic life. Living with a billionaire? Who wouldn’t want too. So what if she dresses them up in outfits and carry’s them in bags? Chihuahua’s love attention and if she was such a bad owner don’t you think her dogs would be malnourished and scrappy? All I can say is if I was a chihuahua, I’d sure like to be hers.

    And p.s people, Read more about PETA before supporting them. They kill thousends of dogs a day for no reason.

  27. Pisces80 says:

    Rose – you are either very naive or very hopeful. Lindsay great post. Normally PETA gets on my nerves because sometimes they get a point across by being too in your face (I have a Shih Tzu who is the love of my life), but they are ‘on it’ in this particular instance – someone with an attention span this short, should NOT be allowed to have any more pets; period!

    Do you guys think Lady Gaga is a good singer?

    The one time I actually agree with PETA..
