PETA Killed 95 Percent of Adoptable Pets in its Care During



This is a rather disturbing story forwarded to me by a vet.


Hypocritical Animal Rights Group's 2008 Disclosures Bring
Pet Death Toll To 21,339


WASHINGTON DC - Today the nonprofit Center for Consumer
Freedom (CCF) published documents online showing that People
for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 95
percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2008.
Despite years of public outrage over its euthanasia program,
the animal rights group kills an average of 5.8 pets every
day at its Norfolk, VA headquarters.


According to public records from the Virginia Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets
last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since
1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands
of PETA workers.


Despite having a $32 million budget, PETA does not operate
an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible
effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill
every year. Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom
petitioned Virginia's State Veterinarian to reclassify PETA
as a slaughterhouse.


CCF Research Director David Martosko said: "PETA hasn't
slowed down its hypocritical killing machine one bit, but it
keeps browbeating the rest of society with a phony 'animal

message. What about the rights of the thousands of dogs,
cats, puppies, and kittens that die in PETA's headquarters


Martosko added: "Since killing pets is A-OK with PETA, why
should anyone listen to their demands about eating meat,
using lab rats for medical research, or taking children to
the circus?"


CCF obtained PETA's "Animal Record" filings since 1998 from
the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services. Members of the public can see these documents at


P.S. Completely disturbing, especially as this appears to be
a factual story.


PETA does a TON of marketing and spends untold sums on
glossy campaigns...perhaps they could spend SOME on Well run
and well funded animal shelters.


My advice: Support your local SPCA, Humane Society or Animal
Shelter ..Do not support PETA
