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.

(Skeptical? Click here to see the documents.)

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.

The Center for Consumer Freedom is a nonprofit coalition supported by restaurants, food companies, and consumers, working together to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices.

I still agree the Circus is cruel and using animals in the cosmetics industry is also.

But I see why we need to use animals for medical research.

peta says the same thing about zoos, but acredited zoos like the big 4 in NYC (bronx, central, propect park, and queens zoos) and the san dieago zoo, have done more for wild and domestic animals than peta and it supporters have talked about doing. for example the bronx zoo breed bison herds were returned to the wild and played and major part in the reintroduction of bison.

so i dont take petas word on anything.

for example i see nothing wrong with using roaches, slugs, starfish ect. in medical research. they are not "intelligent" and can not feel emotional pain or physical pain.

but i think that pigs, mice, rats, dogs, monkeys or any non human primate should NEVER be used in medical experiments thats would cause any kind of damage to their minds, bodies or well being. but i see nothing wrong with other forms of research, that dont cause temporary damage or ill affects. for example intelligence research.

i perfer to make my own opinion based on research than take these peoples world for it.

PETA are a bunch of annoying media whores who use graphic imagery, nudity, and publicity stunts to mask the fact that they offer no real solutions and actually do little to improve the welfare of animals. The Ann Coulters of animal rights.

^^^ 100% correct. Regardless of the pain or injury, life is irreplaceable as Mrs. Jay-Z would stay. PETA is a joke. Always has been, always will be.

I think the bit about pain is completely wrong, for me a merciful pain free death is vastly preferable to a life of horrorific pain and suffering, for animals and human beings alike.
