DOA: PETA Kills More Than 95% Of Pets In Care

DOA: PETA Kills More Than 95% Of Pets In Care
PETA

You'd think that any stray or unwanted pet that found its way to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia would have dodged the needle when it comes to meeting an untimely end to life.


The opposite couldn't be more true however.



Documents from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services were recently published by the Center for Consumer Freedom and show of the 1,992 animals received by PETA in 2011, only 24 were successfully adopted (1.21 percent), while 1,911 (95 percent) were killed.

Similar documents dating back to 1998 show that 27,751 animals have been killed by PETA or 87 percent of all the animals received at its headquarters.


And they apparently don't waste time in killing the animals. An inspector from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) examined the records from a two-month window that showed of the 290 animals brought to the shelter during that time span, 245 were killed within 24 hours.


"PETA hasn't slowed down its slaughterhouse operation," said Rick Berman, CCF's executive director. "It appears PETA is more concerned with funding its media and advertising antics than finding suitable homes for these dogs and cats."

The non-profit organization is well-known the world over for its expensive and outlandish celebrity ad campaigns that extoll the virtuous life of the vegan and has placed the hunting and fishing communities in its crosshairs for obvious reasons.
