PETA killed almost 90% of the animals handed over to the charity's American shelter

Animal rights charity PETA killed almost 90 per cent of dogs and cats placed in the care of the shelter at its Virginia headquarters last year, it has been revealed today.

The charity, well-known for attention grabbing publicity campaigns such as the 'I'd rather go naked' anti-fur campaign, euthanized 1,647 cats and dogs last year and only placed 19 in new homes according to the data submitted to the Virginia Department for Agriculture and Consumer Services.

PETA told Mail Online that the animals they take in at the center are 'unadoptable', however 89.4 per cent of pets is much higher than their own approximation that half of animals taken to shelters end up being euthanized.

It’s all fake, but the American people, including Republican primary voters in SC and other places, can’t figure anything out.

Several years ago their staff got caught dumping dead animals in a grocery store dumpster.

Ahhh... looks like they killed almost 99% of the animals handed over, if the raw numbers given in the article are accurate.

A few years back some “animal rights activists” released some minks from “captivity” so they could be free. (this happened in college buddy’s home town up north) Only problem was - it was winter, below zero, they didn’t have any burros/nests... Deprived of their heated shelters most died, only a few were recaptured and saved. These people are idiots.

They save them by killing them — out of sight, out of mind, and out of their mind.

they are sick, murdering hypocrites.

this was exposed years ago. the virginia operation of peta. back then their rates were over 95% death of their animals. they go to shelters and were taking adoptable animals and euthanizing them in vans. then dumping bodies in business dumpsters.

too bad the minks didn’t turn on them and attack them. they aren’t known for their gentle dispositions.

People need to realize that these organization have nothing to do with animal welfare or children starving in a foreign country. These are communist front organizations that play on the heart strings of stupid Americans that will give money. These organization in turn use their resources to get Obama and other communist into power. Notice how PETA has ties to Hollywood.

Peta feeds on being the cause de’clebre of the hipster/vegan/homo in crowd. They pounce on up and coming musicians/actresses and ‘ensure their success’. Then they get payback from ad campaigns/propaganda.

Want to end PETA? Make it uncool to ‘like’ them for the mindless young masses. Promote all these occurrences.

Let’s play “Liberal”!
Adolf Schickelgruber Hitler loved dogs, was a vegan and issued an exekutiv order banning the boiling of live lobsters.
People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals, to the contrary, murder household pets entrusted to them.
PETA is worse than the Nazi party!

Well...you have to understand leftists and their culture of death. When it comes to “ethical” and “humane” treatment....

they “”think”” euthansia is the only way to go!

Just wait until they start applying their ‘standards’ to humans here in the USA.

PETA killed almost 90% of the animals

PETA killed over 96% of the animals they retained. Unless there is a guarantee that the cats and dogs that were transferred to another shelter survived, those animals should not be counted as survivors. Their number should just be taken off the top: 1,843 cats and dogs went in. 130 were transferred, leaving 1,713 in PETA's loving care. Of that 1,713, 1,647 were killed, or 96.1%.

But they were killed, you know, ethically.

I don’t understand. If there are more pets than there are pet lovers, what should happen to the surplus? What makes this issue so confusing to everyone? What is Obama’s solution to the Pet Glut?

I don't know how they avoid it exactly, but in the UK they euthanize very few dogs compared to most other countries. They can be kept in shelters for a very long time, and a lot of effort is spent matching socializing the dogs and matching them with prospective owners. Again, I'm not sure, but I think this is done with private funds (RSPCA)

As in.....abortion?

PETA's actions do not surprise me. Once the problem is out of sight, it's out of mind.

PETA is making sure that mass “euthanasia” facilities are up and running at all times.

Ever try to adopt a pet from a shelter? It’s gotten a lot harder. They want home visits, references...like adopting a human, only the human isn’t killed (yet) because nobody is qualified to adopt.

PETA has nothing to do with ethical treatment of animals. It has everything to do with an agenda and raising of funds to make people “feel” like they’re doing something good for animals.

I was sucked into a club in middle school called “Friends of Animals.” Of course I was a friend of animals when I was 12. Our club did very little of anything, but we had a car wash to raise money for the local HSUS shelter. Several years later, I’d read that HSUS killed animals to make room in their shelters, and I felt like I’d been used as a pawn in some game for their garbage shelter. It was about that time that I learned about hunting and how truly humane taking of game really was.

The leftists are all playing a game, and everything is built on a house of cards. At some point it will be understood that everything the left purports to stand up for is truly fake.

That figures. Don’’t think about SPCA either. It’s like Hitler’s death chambers for these poor animals.

The end-game for Socialism is extermination, be it animal or human. Once Obamacare is implemented, expect similar mortality rates.
