PETA'S DIRTY SECRET, The Slaughterhouse

Over the past several months we have watched PETA and the likes of Paul McCartney, Alicia Silverstone and even Andy Dick dancing around, pointing fingers and chanting slogans and casting shame, telling others what to eat and getting angry about it.
But there is a truth about the tactics of such hypocrites, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has some serious credibility problems.
While becoming hysterical about the "unethical" treatment of animals by restaurant owners, grocers, farmers, scientists, anglers, and shoppers, the group has its own dirty little secret.
PETA kills animals. By the thousands.
From July 1998 through December 2008, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed over 21,000 dogs, cats, and other "companion animals."

PETA has a walk-in freezer to store the dead bodies, and contracts with a Virginia Beach company to cremate them.
Not counting the pets PETA spayed and neutered, the group and it's angel of death program put to death over 90 percent of the animals it took in during the last five years.

The Virginia Beach SPCA, just down the road from PETA’s Norfolk headquarters, manages to adopt out the vast majority of the animals in its care. And it does it on a shoestring budget.

In 2008 alone, PETA received 2,216 animals,
7 were adopted,
2,124 were killed by PETA,
34 were transferred.
This means that PETA killed 95.8 % Killed of Dogs, Cats, Kittens and Puppies
and only 0.32% were adopted out.
Since 1998 here is the grand total:
25,112 animals were received,
3,083 have been adopted,
21,339 were killed by PETA,
446 were transferred.
85.0% of the animals were put to death.
Only 12.28% found homes through PETA.

On its 2002 federal income-tax return, PETA claimed a $9,370 write-off for a walk-in freezer. And during a 2007 criminal trial, a PETA manager (testifying under oath) confirmed that the group uses the freezer to store the bodies of cats, dogs, kittens and puppies.
In 2000, when the Associated Press first noted PETA's death tendencies, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk complained that actually taking care of animals costs more than killing them.

PETA kills animals. Because it has other financial priorities.
PETA rakes in nearly $30 million each year in income, much of it raised from pet owners who think their donations are actually help animals.
Because PETA and groups like them feel free to tell us what we should and shouldn't eat, we just wanted to set the record straight.
This is why these groups have no credibility at all.

PETA'S killing spree of animals is not animal charity in action, it’s a slaughterhouse.
