PETA – Finding Homes In Animal Heaven For 95% Of It’s Animals
Time to turn the funding faucet off for this bunch of hypocrites. It is the quickest way to get them to shape up or shut up:
Animal lovers worldwide now have access to more than a decade’s worth of proof that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kills thousands of defenseless pets at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. Since 1998, PETA has opted to “put down” 21,339 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding homes for them.
PETA’s “Animal Record” report for 2008, filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that the animal rights group killed 95 percent of the dogs and cats in its care last year. During all of 2008, PETA found adoptive homes for just seven pets.
Just seven animals — out of the 2,216 it took in.
PETA has a budget of 35 million. Most of it is used to advertise their claim that people who eat or kill animals are “unethical”. Rather than cutting the ad budget to provide for the animals in its own care, it kills them.
Anyone – how expensive would an animal adoption program be to set up and run for a group that supposedly believes that killing animals is “unethical?” And how big of a priority would you think that should be?
It wouldn’t cost that much, and yeah, it should be a top priority, shouldn’t it?
If you give this group one red dime in the future, you’ll simply be contributing to a 95% animal kill ratio for animals in their care while they pompously tell you that eating “sea kittens” is murder.
