PETA Killed 95 Percent of Adoptable Pets in its Care During 2008
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 rights’ message. What about the rights of the thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens that die in PETA’s headquarters building?”

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 PetaKillsAnimals.com.

In addition to exposing PETA’s hypocritical record of killing defenseless animals, the Center for Consumer Freedom has publicized the animal rights group’s ties to violent activists, and shed light on its aggressive message-marketing to children.

The Center for Consumer Freedom is a nonprofit coalition supported by restaurants, food companies, and consumers, working together to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices.

The people at PETA hate animals. They don't want people to eat them, wear their skins or fur or keep them as pets. Their ultimate agenda is to eliminate all association between people and animals.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 646094

I used to be a PETA member and was very vocal about the mistreatment of animals for many years. I still really care about animals and feel really sorry for them and think our treatment of them is one of the weakest points of our civilization.

But I think you summed it up nicely, PETA won't acknowledge that animals and people are capable of having a beautiful and mutually beneficial relationship.

I think when you train animals to their highest level of achievement, for instance horses in dressage at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, you give them a great gift of increasing the meaning and quality of their life.

Anyone who could look at a tradition like that and see abuse, cruelty and exploitation, has pieces missing, in my opinion.

However I sure wish there were more examples to point to of the highest level of interaction between animals and man. Animals like to have something to do! They get bored and benefit from training, like the performing SuperDogs which are all owned by individuals, in private homes.

I can't stand confinement farming and the way slaughterhouses and shipping conditions are today. I have been a vegetarian since I was a kid, but not a vegan. Who knows I might eat meat if things were done a lot differently than they are.

 Quoting: Turtles Know 560375

If they don't operate a shelter (which they should - they should have a chain of no-kill shelters and free spay neuter clinics with that kind of budget) then how do all those animals end up at their headquarters? Do people dump them?

If people dump them there and haven't stopped in all these years, then why doesn't PETA make some move to accomodate it and open a shelter, or fund someone else's shelter?

It would suck to have thousands of unwanted animals dumped on your doorstep, but if anyone ever "asked for it", PETA certainly did.

Their refusal to take responsibility is ugly . . .

They certainly have the funds to set up no-kill shelters, but I think like one of the posters said, they want no relationship between people and animals.

Seems like an oxymoron to call themselves ethical and then killing animals.

I am no fan of PETA, but that article sounds like bullshit to me. Just about anything from a corporate front group like Center for Consumer Freedom should be assumed to be filled with half-truths and distortions. That is what they get paid for - why would you expect them to tell the truth?

Do you have any FACTUAL references for this that were NOT written by high paid propagandists? Any idea of the context of this bullshit? No - of course not. They strung together a series of words that they knew would get you to react - and you played right along. Thus, we see the reason for the state of things in this country. They know exactly how to manipulate us - and too few of us know how to see through it.

I realize it can be fun to spread lies other people were paid to make you believe, but in the end, it just makes you look like a fool.

Sorry.
