In 2006 PeTA Killed 97% of "Companion Animals"

January 10, 2008 - Centre Daily Times reports: "Virginia's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), reports that the average euthanasia rate for humane societies in the state was just 34.7 percent in 2006. PETA killed 97.4 percent of the animals it took in. The organization filed its 2006 report this month, nine months after the VDACS deadline of March 31, 2007." Isn't that a surprising kill rate for an organization that presents itself as being for ethical treatment of animals?

At PeTA Kills Animals, Tim Miller reports: "PETA rakes in nearly $30 million each year in income, much of it raised from pet owners who think their donations actually help animals." There are statistics at this site which show the killing trend.
In 2000, when the Associated Press first noted PETA's Kervorkian-esque tendencies, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk complained that actually taking care of animals costs more than killing them. "We could become a no-kill shelter immediately," she admitted. (from PeTA Kills Animals)
I highly recommend the Pet-Law site as a source of education about how Animal Rights activists turn their confusion loose upon our society via poorly written and unneeded laws. I'm on several related forums and due to other life pressures now, am finding it very difficult to keep up with the tsunami of bad legislation being pushed around the country. Subscribing multiples of these lists can mean over a megabyte of mail on a weekly basis, that's how bad it is. Most of us are unaware of these activities in our own communities til it is passed as law and it's too late to react. However, I highly recommend that everyone join a local one just to get shaken into awareness of what you don't know is happening. If you think your elected representatives are watching out for you, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise as they push penalty fees of hundreds of dollars on you and their constituents for what they thought was initally a 'good idea' supported by the mainstream.

I noticed PetConnection had a discussion on a spay neuter paper that I posted a link for earlier. I think the paper does a good job bringing light to the fact that spay/neuter issues, especially pediatric surgery is a mixed bag, however, the paper assumed some givens as always true that were not all that accurate either. The discussion however goes into more detail than I have time for but check out the discussion to get more detail.

No on California AB 1634
"California Healthy Pets Act"
Choosing a 'feel good' perky name for a bill perpetuates the GRAND deception
