People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 95% of the adoptable animals at their Virginia headquarters last year; in other words out of 2050 animals 1965 were euthanized (28 animals were adopted and 31 transferred to other facilities).
According to Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) Senior Research Analyst J. Justin Wilson, the majority of these animals were held less than 24 hours before being killed, giving few people the chance to adopt these animals.
PETA has published guidelines for running a humane shelter. Discovered by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services during an inspection in 2010, 84% of all animals in their shelters were killed within 24 hours. PETA doesn’t meet the established, published guidelines on humane treatment that PETA created!
What did PETA do with their 30 million dollar budget last year? It wasn’t saving animals from slaughter. Your hard earned donated dollars you contributed in good faith wasn’t used to help animals. These millions of dollars were squandered by another ridiculous publicity stunt, attempting to save whales that were denied their 13th Amendment rights, that they were being held as slaves in Sea World, and other ludicrous exploits.
Why were so many animals destroyed? According to PETA spokesperson Daphna Nachminovitch, who is Vice President of PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department, suggested they’d rather see the animals destroyed than have the potential of going to abusive homes. In fact, it was basically pet owner’s fault; until pets are spayed and neutered this atrocity would continue.
The 1965 animals that were killed are only the animals in their Virginia headquarters’ shelter, how many were killed in their other PETA shelters?
This isn’t the first year PETA has killed thousands of animals. It has happened many times in the past. Check out my previous story, more enlightening dealings about PETA, and their dirty little secrets! PETA Death Squad - Kills Thousands of Animals
I am certainly not suggesting, not donating money or your time, to helping animals but PETA is not the answer; PETA is never the answer, at least not for many years. Where do you donate your money, to your no kill local shelters!
