PETA Kills 90% of Cats and Dogs at Virginia Headquarters
Wow, this is a doozie. Data recently reported by PETA reveals that the animal-rights group killed almost 90 percent of dogs and cats in its care at the Virginia headquarters in 2012.
According to documents PETA submitted to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), the organization reported killing 1,647 cats and dogs, 28 other companion animals and 72 wild animals in 2012. PETA only placed 23 animals in adoptive homes. Since 1998, the organization has killed 29,398 animals.
PETA's website boasts of never turning their back on animals that need help, even if the best we can offer them is a peaceful release from an uncaring world.
An article recently posted on Ussportsmen has PETA President Ingrid Newkirk quoted as saying, We could become a no-kill shelter immediately. It means we wouldn't do as much work.
With its $36 million budget, the animal rights group could stop the killing of innocent cats and dogs, but that would mean cutting down on their work of harassing hunters with drones and other ridiculous acts of protest.
Hypocritical much, PETA?
