The images of sad-eyed dogs and filthy kittens flash across the TV screen, especially before, during and after those heart-warming family cable movies, and then there's the plea for money along with a phone number, and for that fast guilt-relieving donation, express credit card use is available.
PETA has no cash flow problem, but the organization's handling of the welfare of animals in its care is grim:
"Despite having a $32 million budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill every year. Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia's State Veterinarian to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse."
On the PETA website there are a lot of cute, fussy and doe-eyed pictures, and PETA focuses on "the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other "pests," and the abuse of backyard dogs." But with PETA words and deeds don't have to mesh.
Organizations exhibiting hypocritical behavior, and money grubbing, must be called on to the carpet:
That's exactly why the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia's State Veterinarian last year to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse.In addition to exposing PETA's hypocritical record of killing defenseless animals, we've been tirelessly publicizing the animal rights group's ties to violent activists, and putting the spotlight on its aggressive and grossly inappropriate message-marketing to children.
All part of PETA's modus operandi, and committed animal lovers should see what the slaughter of house pets really is, and by animal rights standards, it's mass murder.
