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

    Documents published online this month show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an organization known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions, killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its care in 2011.The documents, obtained from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, were published online by the Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit organization that runs online campaigns targeting groups that antagonize food producers.Fifteen years’ worth of similar records show that since 1998 PETA has killed more than 27,000 animals at its headquarters in Norfolk, VA.In a February 16 statement, the Center said PETA killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year, finding homes for only 24 pets.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    From what I can tell, it says that we have more animals than society desires.

    What a business for PETA to be in. There are no-kill shelters all over the United States. For PETA to run a shelter that euthanizes family pets is just plain hypocritical. Good God.

    Friggin hypocrites. I hate PETA so bad. One of the most worthless organizations there is. They could be good. I have no issue with an organization that fights for the humane treatment of animals. But when you have a group that goes after the POTUS for slapping a fly? That's ridiculous. These guys have been a joke for LOOOOONG time.

    Of course they do. PETA is a scam and are nothing but a bunch of damned hypocrites. The Penn and Teller show Bull**** did an episode on PETA and that's pretty much all anyone needs to know about that organization.

    You are apparently unaware of PETA's positions. They support it. That would mean that euthanizing animals is not hypocrisy. In fact they have solid reasons why euthanasia is necessary. Animal Rights Uncompromised: Euthanasia | PETA.org

    PETA did not go after the president for swatting a fly. They joked around a bit and made some generic comments about being kind to all animals, and then only when asked by the media. Obama and the Fly, Part Deux | PETA.org

    I am not a fan of PETA since they go too far in some things and their tactics are not what I consider appropriate. However, this thread is the ultimate fail since it requires people to be entirely ignorant of the actual topic. More reading on the topic: Euthanasia | PETA.org

    Until dog and cat overpopulation is brought under control through spaying and neutering, we must prevent the suffering of unwanted animals in the most responsible and humane way possible. Euthanasia, performed properly, is often the most compassionate option.
    The only way to stop the suffering of the innocent victims of companion animal overpopulation is to prevent their births through sterilization efforts. Every last one of the millions of animal deaths at animal shelters and in the streets, alleyways, fields, basements, and back yards that occur every year could be prevented through spaying and neutering. You can help. It's as easy as ABC—animal birth control.
    That is something I can actually agree with. PETA uses the appropriate, noncruel methods approved by the US Humane Society and AMVA.

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

    Cat rescue is what I do. So here is my IMHO about this....

    PETA generally ends up with animals that have been abused. Not those that have lived in a loving environment. Those animals do not have social skills and can not be rehomed so euthanasia is an appropriate solution.

    No-kill shelters are packed solid everywhere. My local government pound contractor kills 85% of the cats they take in INCLUDING highly socialized cats that would make someone a GREAT companion.

    This is MY website - there are no ads - I do this because I give a damn. Advocacy for exceptional cats in imminent danger

    Maybe this will give you a better idea of the horror of what's going on. I think PETA is nuts but I support some of what they do.

    PETA is a pretty messed up bunch. They support criminals like the ALF, who bomb medical laboratories.
