Is PETA Killing Pets for the Donation Money?
A Different Kind of PETA Shock Sparks Effort to Revoke Tax Exemption
Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- PETA is used to shocking people with bizarre publicity stunts. However, new information showing that the animal rights group kills thousands of adoptable pets provides a different kind of shock than usual.
The Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) has fired another salvo against the animal rights group. The CCF previously highlighted PETA’s record of killing thousands of animals while hypocritically engaging in protests worldwide against animal cruelty.
The latest public records obtained by the CCF from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services paint a grisly picture. According to the CCF review, in 2008, of the 2,216 adoptable animals PETA took into custody, only seven actually were adopted. A shocking 2,124 were killed. That amounted to a 95.8% kill rate.
PETA also accepts “contributions” for the abandoned animals from individuals that drop them off, so it appear they are just taking them in for the money? – AmmoLand
The CCF has created a new website highlighting the story, PETA Kills Animals. The CCF also seeks to tap into public anger over PETA’s hypocritical animal rights’ agenda by pushing for the group to lose its tax exempt status.
This effort includes an online petition to be forwarded to the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner that urges PETA’s tax exempt status be revoked.
The petition outlines many of PETA’s outrageous stunts and states:
“By repeatedly and continuously giving financial support to individuals and organizations devoted to domestic terrorism, PETA has demonstrated that it is incapable of conducting itself in a manner expected of nonprofit groups receiving federal tax subsidies.”
