"From July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs, cats and other 'companion animals' Â– at its Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters. That's more than five defenseless animals every day. Not counting the dogs and cats PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 85 percent of the animals it took in during 2003 alone. And its angel-of-death pattern shows no sign of changing."Five a day. I don't eat that many animals a day, but PETA thinks I'M the one being cruel?
Of course, PETA has an answer, if you ask them. (PETA's response in italics)

"[M]ost of the animals we receive are broken beings for whom euthanasia is, without a doubt, the most humane option."PetaKillsAnimals quotes an SPCA director thusly
PETA kills 85 percent of the animals it takes in, and finds adoptive homes for just 14 percent. By contrast, the Norfolk SPCA, whose shelter is located less than 4 miles from PETA's headquarters, found adoptive homes for 73 percent of its animals in 2003. ItÂ’s rather hard to believe that the animals entrusted to PETA are any more likely to be Â“broken beings.Â”
I often receive phone calls from frantic people who have surrendered their pets to PETA with the understanding that PETA will "find them a good home." Many of them are led to believe that the animals will be taken to a nearby shelter. Little do they know that the pets are killed in the PETA van before they even pull away from the pet owner's home Â… PETA refuses to surrender animals they obtain to area shelters for rehoming. If only the celebrity "deep-pocket" donors on the west coast knew that their donations were going to kill adoptable cats and dogs here in Norfolk.
I admit, I don't like PETA. They are, in a word, nuts. But I never thought they were hypocritical nuts. The word needs to get out about this.
