Virginia Asked to Classify PETA as a Slaughterhouse
Thursday, January 17, 2008
Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit trade group representing the
interests of manufacturers and retailers, formally petitioned the
Commonwealth of Virginia to reclassify PETA as a "slaughterhouse".
official report filed by PETA itself shows that the animal rights group
put to death nearly every dog, cat, and other pet it took in for
adoption in 2006. During that year, the well-known animal rights group
managed to find adoptive homes for just 12 animals. The organization
killed 2,981 of the 3,061 "companion animals" it took in.
According to David Martosko, Research Director for CCF...
is absurd to classify PETA as a 'humane society' when its employees are
slaughtering nearly every companion animal they bring in. PETA has
killed over 17,000 pets since 1998. Given the group's astonishing habit
of killing adoptable dogs and cats with such ruthless efficiency, it's
only fair that the state of Virginia refer to PETA as a slaughterhouse."
petition was directed to Virginia's Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. If approved, the new classification would force PETA
to abide an entirely new set of laws and regulations.
of Consumer Freedom has set PETA in its sights because PETA has
targeted the companies that CCF represents, such as food makers,
department stores, and textile companies.
successful publicity campaigns have been those against the fur
industry, arguing that killing animals for fur is akin to cruelty. Yet
ironically, PETA itself is killing thousands perfectly healthy and
adoptable animals for no better reason than just ideology.
Click on the first PETA name in blue in the first paragraph of the copied and pasted article above. You should go into the petakillsanimals website. There you will be able to read much more and be as horrified as I was.
To sign a petition to have PETA's tax-exemption status removed, when into
this site; www.petakillsanimals.com website click on; 'PETA's Lame Response,'
then on left hand side look for; 'sign the PETA petition.' They have a
great many electronic signatures already, but need as many as they can
get. You can also fill in a form and send the petition to your friends.
I have done a great deal more research, and YES, PETA does kill animals in their care. We must make this more known so that people will not entrust animals to them under the guise of being found a home. Also, animal lovers must stop donating any money to them.

Thank you all for caring, on behalf of the, 'Victims with no Voice'.
If you have any comments, please come into my forum in this site; Forum - Peta topic page open here and let us know what you think...Maybe you've found out something more? Perhaps you are like me and are disgusted that PETA, who is called a Humane Society, can be killing all the animals instead of finding them homes! Just read all the report figures in the 'petakillsanimals' site.....
As this information is true, why isn't it huge television news to educate the public? This would help stop the donations from coming in to such an inhuman society!
