    This is why I refuse to send money to any crisis or cause. Corruption is rampant with the money donated. Me sending canned goods and a few cases of water to the hurricane Katrina victims went a lot further than those who sent out a $50 check.

    I will be honest and say that I am not much of an animal person. I have had a few pets, but just don't have any ambition right now to have one. As I said, I have no problems with any org. putting down these animals in a humane way. people sending all this money to them, or anyone and then them taking this money then putting down the animals is corrupt, and scandalous. People should send pet food and other essential items used for pet care rather than sending money.

    I like donating time, but I could not do it working with animals. I get way too attached way too quick.

    Caution Re: Documents: PETA kills more than 95 percent of pets in its care

    Guys, maybe we should cut PETA a bit of slack:

    In my first year working at a grossly substandard animal shelter in Maryland, I forced myself to go in early to euthanize dogs by holding them in my arms and gently helping them escape an uncaring world without trauma or pain and to spare them from being stabbed haphazardly—while they were fully conscious, terrified and aware—in the general vicinity of their hearts with needles blunt from reuse and left to thrash on the floor until they finally died by the callous people who would arrive later to do the job.

    I always wonder how anyone cannot recognize that there is a world of difference between painlessly euthanizing animals out of compassion—aged, injured, sick, and dying animals whose guardians can't afford euthanasia, for instance—as PETA does, and causing them to suffer terror, pain, and a prolonged death while struggling to survive on the streets, at the hands of untrained and uncaring "technicians," or animal abusers.

    I'm with you brother. I am very, very hesitant to send money to any organization. The only place that gets my money is my church. I treat these organizations like homeless people. I will buy a homeless guy a huge meal, take him into Wal-Mart to buy clothes, into the grocery store if need be, but he's not getting a red cent of actual money. I just don't know where its gonna go.

    Forgive me if I'm skeptical bro. These animals should have been put down, I agree. However, 95% of the animals in their care don't look like this I'm sure. Further, I am not going to trust an organization with as radical a background as PETA. Their track record hurts their credibility IMO.

    Again, not a problem with putting these animals down. They should be put down. Any vet will do the same and just as quickly and humanely. Peta absorbing huge donations and then taking these animals to a vet or a vet working on behalf of them to do so but people thinking that Peta is going to be saving a majority of the animals it takes in. There are people who work for or are a member of Peta in high rank who are taking that money and not using it where it is meant to go.

    Just to repeat guys, PETA does not run animal shelters that I can find out. They do not take in healthy animals.

    Just throwing it out there guys, and I'm guilty too. Lets stop replying with quote on those pictures. Everyone got the point, there's no need for us to keep recycling them.

    I will look into that as well. However, if that is true, their vets are taking the easy way out on 95% of their patients. Basically what we're saying is that PETA can't find a vet that can get over a .5 in 10 ratio of rescues to euthanizations. Where did their vets get their licenses, Wal-Mart on Black Friday?

    Doesn't PETA also protest at dog shows? Protesting against responsible animal lovers. If they really wanted to help dogs they'd be in Amish country near the puppy mills. But, I guess that's kind of low-profile and too much trouble.
