PETA Killed 95 Percent of Adoptable Pets in its Care During 2008

Hypocritical Animal Rights Group’s 2008 Disclosures Bring Pet Death Toll To 21,339

WASHINGTON DC – Today the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) published documents online showing that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 95 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2008. Despite years of public outrage over its euthanasia program, the animal rights group kills an average of 5.8 pets every day at its Norfolk, VA headquarters.

According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers.

Despite having a $32 million budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill every year. Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia’s State Veterinarian to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse.

CCF Research Director David Martosko said: “PETA hasn’t slowed down its hypocritical killing machine one bit, but it keeps browbeating the rest of society with a phony ‘animal rights’ message. What about the rights of the thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens that die in PETA’s headquarters building?”

Martosko added: “Since killing pets is A-OK with PETA, why should anyone listen to their demands about eating meat, using lab rats for medical research, or taking children to the circus?”

CCF obtained PETA’s “Animal Record” filings since 1998 from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Members of the public can see these documents at PetaKillsAnimals.com.

In addition to exposing PETA’s hypocritical record of killing defenseless animals, the Center for Consumer Freedom has publicized the animal rights group’s ties to violent activists, and shed light on its aggressive message-marketing to children.

PETA has been doing this for years. Yet the media continues to regard these nutbag artists of self-promotion as THE animal rights group of consequence. Penn & Teller did a show on PETA a few years back chronicling this same thing.

ASPCA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>PeTA

PeTA has killed more pets in the past month than a certain NFL QB did in his entire lifetime.

I completely agree there. I still say the idea of PETA is almost noble, the reality of it is a politically driven whore of an organization who lost touch with reality long, long ago.

I don't remember too many PETA lovers on here. I'm an animal lover who hates PETA.

As such, I'm not surprised by this news in the least.

As Kicker said, **** PETA.

...that's because there weren't many here.. there were some including myself that said PeTA is right on some subjects but they're wrong on many others. (IE do we really need to torture animals in the name of fashion?) I think some confuse people that have and care about animals with those that support PeTA, which would be akin to saying that if you're aFalcons fans you must also support Vick.. it simply isn't true.

I will have you know that I want the animals that went into making my crotchless leather pants to have been killed in the most painless, humane way possible

They've been doing this for years. The kill ratios of their shelters have always been higher than the kill ratios of actual animal shelters.

In fact a few years ago, a few PETA employees got busted for driving around an "animal adoption van", but after people gave them their pets for adoption they just killed them all in the van and threw them into a ditch.

Neither, which is way it would be hypocritical of me to judge Michael Vick

Nobody asked you to, the laws of our country did it for you, the act of killing a dog through electrocution may not be any different, but the illegal gambling aspect is very different. There's also the whole issue of livestock being raised for the sole purpose of food and dogs being pets by our cultural standards, don't like it? Move to China.

So true. People don't take cows jogging or have a guard cow to protect them. Cows are food.

Only because they are one of the few animals that we can easily walk into a slaughterhouse, same with chickens. Ever eat horse meat? :D

No, I have not. It seems as if humans (American anyway) make pets out of animals they can train such as cats, dogs, horses and such. Animals that are not good for training, chickens, cows, and pigs become food. I like it.
