PETA's Hypocrisy

PETA Killed 95 Percent of Adoptable Pets in its Care During 2008
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. Read More

It’s always interesting to see how many animals PETA has killed lately. Just like HSUS, their goal isn’t to help animals, it is to raise money through crisis creation. Actions speak louder than words and these actions pretty clearly demonstrate their hypocritical behavior.

although I appreciate your concern your article is based on false content and propaganda promoted by a website, organization and snake oil salesman called Richard Berman well known for his mission to dis-credit animal rights groups, MADD and other responsible organizations. please check out this website and see for yourself http://www.bermanexposed.org/

when you use this propaganda others know where it comes from and your legitimacy drops to zero....

Finally, something with some tangible facts to show what this association is really like. I hope this story gets spread throughout the newswire. I wouldn't hurt if we all sent this story to an editor or friend.

So Amber, you are saying that the Virginia Department of Agriculture is lying? And your website seems to attack the messenger doesn't it? Can you prove this article isn't accurate?
