What does PETA stand for, again?

 

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, you say? More like People Eradicating Thousands of Animals. The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom last week reported that PETA slaughtered fully 95 percent of the stray dogs and cats it “rescued” in 2011. And that’s par for the cat-killing course: Overall, PETA has killed more than 90 percent of the animals it’s taken in since 2005.

 

Bottom line: The organization that claims its members would “rather go naked than wear fur” prefers to kill dogs and cats rather than find homes for them.

Yes, making the effort to find homes for stray pets takes time — of which PETA apparently has precious little. In 2010, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services discovered that fully 84 percent of the strays taken in by PETA were killed within 24 hours. No wonder: The report concluded that PETA’s headquarters “does not contain sufficient animal enclosures to routinely house the number of animals annually reported as taken into custody.” So, off they go to the gas chamber. No surprise, though, that the organization is much more adept at fund-raising than it is at finding homes for kittens and puppies. PETA’s annual budget is $37 million, “most,” it claims, coming from tax-deductible contributions from 2 million members. But that is also considerably supplemented by foundation support: PETA has received some $18.7 million over the last three years from organizations like game-show host Bob Barker’s DJ&T Foundation.

 

Certainly PETA loves the outrageous. Remember when the organization was after the upstate community of Fishkill to change its name to something a tad more ichthyologically sensitive? That pr masterstroke earned it international headlines. And people certainly took note when PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk proclaimed “a rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.” Except now, the dog is dead. Better keep an eye on Junior.

 

 

 

 

Since 1998, PETA went from killing 72.6 % of all the animals it takes in, to 95.9 % in 2011. Sure, it's much cheaper to stuff a gas chamber full of dogs and cats then to care for them and feed them until a home is found.

 

Most pets are killed within 24 hours of being taken in. Read more here:

Guys, Consumer Freedom is run by Richard Branson(sp). If you don't know about him you might want to learn about him before you believe Consumer Freedom. You've been taken in. Not saying PETA is good or bad, just saying believing Richard Branson is always always a mistake.

I don't know what to believe but i am 100% against so many animals being killed, and as i have said before" if you are considering a pet please visit your local shelters because there are good loving animals that are put down because no one gives them a chance" most are not problem animals, these are loving caring animals that desperately need a home.

There's nothing unethical about putting down sick and un-adoptable animals. Every shelter does it. This "outrage" is being pushed by a "grassroots" organization that's a front for the food industry who are upset about PETA and other groups uncovering their factory farming operations.
