Documents published online this month show that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an organization known for its uncompromising animal-rights positions, killed more than 95 percent of the pets in its care in 2011. . . . In a February 16 statement, the Center said PETA killed 1,911 cats and dogs last year, finding homes for only 24 pets.
Kovich also determined that PETA employees kill 84 percent of the animals in their custody within 24 hours of receiving them.

What is PETA doing? What is their purpose, and how can they go so directly opposite to what they publicly proclaim?

st wonder why so many people, celebrities or not, follow them blindly, support them, help them and think it's awesome what they do. But then again, same counts for Scientology and numerous other shady, money-hungry organisations.
If you say you're taking care of animals, don't lie about it, put your money into taking care of animals. If you know you're going to kill the vast majority of them in the first day you have them, don't take them in. Let somebody do it who cares.
Would any organisation be acceptable to you? Anything? What would it take to be a mere "animal organisation" ? I don't see what else you can do.
What are you doing? How many animals have you sheltered and tried to find homes for? How about donating to FEMA, and perhaps then they could afford to house animals longer?
Nah you just want an excuse to demonize them.
One cat I picked up was stranded on the median of a highway which was in the middle of a very aggressive demonstration. I just opened the car door, swooped up the cat, and threw it into the back seat. "Thunderpaws" was a favorite of mine for years. And no I don't want to demonize PETA, I thought my motivation was clear from the title and my writing. Of course, you have every right to believe I'm lying, but I don't know why you would. I AM disappointed and saddened.
I've had four cats and a dog. They've all been picked up off the street or from shelters.
Unlike local animal shelters, PETA doesn't even bother trying to find homes for these pets. All of them are killed within a few hours. In fact, PETA has gone through several area vets, and they refused to euthanize healthy animals. Finally PETA constructed their own facilities for this practice.
PETA's mission statement, written by that group's leader Ingrid Newkirk states "We believe that animals have an intrinsic worth of their own".
which circles back to ... if there is a will, there is always a way.
County Commission approved a no-kill resolution by a unanimous vote! This resolution is historic because it is the first such resolution in any city or county in Florida. --- snip --- What’s happening in Manatee County is inspiring because for so long people have said that no-kill is not possible in Florida. Manatee County is proving that no-kill is possible in Florida, and that it starts as an act of will.
