I’m still up in the air about this. I’m leaning more towards the, ‘this is probably true side’ because of PETA members willing to throw animal blood on those wearing fur, leather, ect. I don’t know, it’s conflicting and hurts a little. I understand that all the pets wont be adopted but with a 36million dollar budget, you’d think PETA would concentrate their spending more on a suitable death for the unadopted [after a certain amount of time] instead of littering with stickers for free. Pretty much, what I think it comes down to is this – there is no perfect human, even those who try to do good. There’s always three sides to the story. What PETA says, what the media says and then the TRUTH.
PETA does a lot of good for animals but be advised they do euthanize a very large amount of their intake. 1,877 animals entered PETAs facility out of those only 130 animals were moved to local shelters (kill shelters ) , they euthanized 1,675 of these animals and 43 died miscellaneously. These are VDAC records and are factual . I have supported PETA many years now but i have issues with some of the things they support, for instance i believe with all the donations they get they should open up an actual shelter so more animals can be homed, instead of leaving the burden on local kill shelters, also i am appalled by their support of bsl or the banning of pitbulls.
Hey @RatClaws– the breed of the animals doesn’t always determine their adoptability. (I’ve met tons of pit bulls who are sweet hearts). We’re just against the breeding of any kind of dog when millions of animals are being euthanized in shelters across the country every year because there aren’t enough good homes for them to go to.

@sara-w I understand that a lot of this info is from Richard Berman, but what about the pit bulls? Is it true that they should just be destroyed?? I see the logic, but hey, there’s also logic in killing someone if you look hard enough.. At least if they go to a shelter they have a CHANCE at being placed into a good home. And if it IS true, then I say PETA should be more focused on doing background checks and the like, rather than immediately euthanizing them..
