Jenelle Evans is back in the news again, this time regarding her mistreatment of dogs on Teen Mom 2 and her response to critics of said animal abuse.

Seriously. Girl cannot go a week without some new controversy.

Concerned viewers saw her dogs - specifically Nathan Griffith's dog Moogan - basically living in their own filth on a recent Teen Mom 2 episode.

Seeing Jenelle drag Nathan's dog by the collar and lock him in a crate with her own dog, cramming them in so tight that they could barely move?

It was hard to stomach. Some people even stole her dog recently, claiming they were protecting the animal; they were arrested and face criminal charges.

Thievery aside, fans took to Twitter to express concern. Even PETA got involved, writing an open letter encouraging Jenelle to find a new home for the dogs.

"Please understand that dogs are not toys or amusements or possessions just to have around," the group wrote. "They are full of feelings and needs, just as you are."

"You may not have realized that keeping dogs crated for long periods of time deprives them of everything that is natural and important to them."

"When you scream at them, it clearly frightens and upsets them."

"We urge you to be strong and do what's right," they told Jenelle Evans, urging her to "please immediately make the commitment to finding them a new, suitable home."

Instead of being "punished and yelled at for relieving themselves," PETA adds, dogs deserve to be treated as valued family members, not inconveniences in a busy life."

Jenelle seemed concerned and sincere in sitting down with MTV and said she regretted her dog-related actions, which looked pretty bad on TV.

She didn't take kindly to PETA's letter, though.

She's been re-tweeting supportive messages from fans, basically saying she didn't do anything wrong, and sending the above Geico-themed meme directly to PETA.

Keep it classy, girl. Always keep it classy.
