PETA, the “animal rights” organization that supports breed specific bans, and an end to ownership of animals as companions (for more information see the post – PETA’s Pit Bull and Companion Animal Policies) set a new record for 2008. Documents published on the website PETA Kills Animals show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals killed about 95 percent of the pets placed into their care during 2008, which translates into roughly 5-6 animals euthanized each day. The public records available through the VA Department of Agriculture and Consumer services show PETA killed 2,124 pets in 2008, placing only 7 in adoptive homes. Over the past 10 years PETA has slaughtered over 20,000 dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, and other pets.
Maybe instead of brainwashing young children into believing untruths about sea creatures, or guilting animal-loving adults into veganism, PETA should re-evaluate their hypocritical stance on animal treatment, and actually make an effort to place surrendered animals into adoptive homes. I guess a $30+ million dollar a year income is much too limiting to provide appropriate care for animals waiting to be adopted when you are paying celebrities like Pamela Anderson, Alyssa Milano, Joss Stone, Bonnie-Jill Laflin, and Imogen Bailey to strip in your ads.
Despite their blatant attempts at selling sex, PETA is perhaps one of the most un-sexy “activist” organizations in existence. Hiding behind those overpaid celebrity endorsements is an organization that kills 95% of the animals that come through their doors. 95%!! PETA is nothing more than a hypocritical killing machine, casting condescension on the rest of society with a phony ‘animal rights’ messages, all the while senselessly killing adoptable animals. What about the rights of the thousands of dogs, cats, and other pets that die in PETA headquarters?!

PETA might lie, but the numbers do not.
