People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is an organization long known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions. However according to the Center for Consumer Freedom and documents they obtained from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services it appears that the animal rights advocate have killed more than 95% of the pets in their care. PETA, for lack of a better word, is a slaughterhouse!
Sadly, PETA hasn't denied this saying that "it only kills animals due to injury, illness, age, aggression, or because no good homes exist for them. Most of the animals we take in are society’s rejects; aggressive, on death’s door, or somehow unadoptable."
If that is true than how does PETA explain its lack of sufficient animal enclosures to house the number of animals it takes in, and the fact that it kills 84% of the animals they take in - within 24 hours?
Look, I know that there are far too many animals who wind up in shelters on their last legs, but when I hear about staggering percentages - something just doesn't sound right. Perhaps PETA needs to reconsider their advertising budget and ultra liberal agenda and use the monies taken in to actually - care for the animals?
After losing my pet cat last year, I can tell you the loss of my beloved "Schmoozie" is something I haven't been able to shake to this day. Animals become a part of us and the fact that so many have been turned out by owners who either can no longer care for them or other reasons is disturbing enough. But when I hear of an organization who constantly is hawking for donations and giving contributors a false sense of comfort that these unfortunate animals will be given the love and care they deserve - it just sickens me to no end!
Well folks, if you have a heart here is what I suggest you do - support only those organizations and shelters that actually do what they say their stated mission is. I encourage everyone to not support PETA - either directly or indirectly.
Unfortunate pets deserve more than what PETA is offering!
