Pets are people too, according to PETA, and it seems they’ve learned a great deal from abortion propaganda. If they can’t take care of the animals they claim to care so much about, the only compassionate thing to do is kill them. Just like the abortion supporters who want to prevent an unborn child from growing up in this cold, dark and cruel world. See? That’s what they call “ethical treatment.”
They’ll talk a lot about saving the animals, and they’ll go to ridiculous lengths in their own advertisements to convince people not to wear fur. So, a reasonable person might expect to find PETA shelters filled to the brim with animals and employees working overtime to care for them. But that’s hardly reality.
PETA might use hidden cameras and undercover agents to help make a documentary about the horrific conditions of mass slaughterhouses in order to garner more donations from emotionally naïve individuals and pseudo-philanthropic, public image-obsessed Hollywood actors. And their own motto is, “Animals are not ours to eat, experiment on, or use for entertainment.” But, apparently they are theirs to kill if they can’t take care of them. The truth is, PETA shelters are really nothing more than slaughterhouses themselves.
Since 1998, PETA has slaughtered nearly 30,000 animals. Last year at PETA’s Norfolk, Virginia headquarters, they ended up killing 90% of the animals they took in, or 1,647 cats and dogs. They found homes for only 19. Two years ago, they took in 1,911 felines and canines and killed 95% of them, leaving 24 for whom they found owners. Eighty-four percent of the animals they took in were killed within the first 24 hours of receiving them.
Flush with a $36 million annual budget and the backing of celebrities and Hollywood types, PETA maintains that they have to kill these animals because of their age and aggressive natures. They claim they’re “unadoptable.” So, the vast majority of them are simply slaughtered.
PETA doesn’t even have a sufficient number of animal enclosures to house the number of animals they reportedly take in. They don’t even try to take care of these “poor” and “abused” animals. PETA’s blatant hypocrisy is repulsive. They’re just a money-making venture that profits by playing on people’s emotions.
