PETA's Secret Slaughter of Kittens, Puppies: Is this what celebrities want to be seen endorsing?

WARNING: Disturbing images in this OP!

PETA, (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) publicly claims to represent the best interest of animals -- indeed their "ethical treatment." They have a very heart-rending appeal on their website, www.peta.org, for the rehousing of Olivia, a rescued cat in Virginia.

Poor little Olivia was a 5-pound skeleton with fur when a man found her wandering outside the warehouse where he works, just a few miles from PETA's headquarters at the Sam Simon Center in Norfolk, Virginia. She was suffering from an apparent sinus infection, which had caused her cheeks to balloon to the point that her eyes were just slits and she could barely see. On top of that, she was so weakened and anemic from prolonged, severe malnutrition that she was only a day or two away from needing a blood transfusion.
All well and laudable. Or is it actually, given what has been revealed about their treatment of cats in the US? The PETA headquarters is on the aptly named Front Street. While claiming to be an animal rights organization, PETA does not believe animals have a right to live. Instead, it believes that people have a right to kill them, as long as the killing is done "humanely," which PETA interprets to mean poisoning them with an overdose of barbiturates.



Last year, 733 dogs entered this building. They killed 602 of them. Only 12 were adopted. Also in 2012, they impounded 1,110 cats. 1,045 were put to death. Seven of them were adopted. They also took in 34 other companion animals, such as rabbits, of which 28 were put to death. Only four were adopted.

The treatment of animals in their care is quite shocking:


A puppy dying of parvovirus in the Houston shelter is not given anything soft to lie on as she urinates all over herself. Here she sits, unable to keep her head up, alone in a cold, barren stainless steel cage without receiving necessary veterinary care. Other shelters have a better than 90% rate of saving dogs with parvovirus.





An Ahsokie Police Detective dressed in a hazmat suit prepares to bury a puppy killed by PETA. This puppy and dozens of other animals including cats and kittens were found by police throughout June of 2005 after PETA employees dumped them in a garbage bin in North Carolina.






The PETA field killing kit found by police in the back of the PETA death van in Ahsokie, North Carolina.





A supermarket dumpster full of garbage bags. When police officers looked inside, they found the bodies of dead animals -- animals killed by PETA. PETA described these animals as "adorable" and "perfect." A veterinarian who naively gave PETA some of the animals, thinking they would find them homes, and examined the dead bodies of others, testified that they were "healthy" and "adoptable."



Interestingly, PETA have admitted that they do not believe all animals have a right to life.
In a postcard sent to Nathan Winograd, a HuffPost columnist, they tacitly admit this:



The right to life is the most fundamental of all rights. It is fundamental because without it, no other "rights" are possible. How can animals be guaranteed the right to food, water, shelter and protection, when those things can be taken away by killing them?
Lots more on this link. But the final paras sum it up:

These pictures reveal the truth about PETA, a reality that is deeply at odds with the public's perception of that organization as a radical animal rights group. In practice, PETA is the functional equivalent of a slaughterhouse, while their efforts to undermine the lifesaving work of animal lovers throughout the country continually derail urgently needed reforms that would further the rights of our nation's homeless dogs and cats.

By defending regressive and cruel shelters and sheltering policies that mandate killing, by calling for the death of certain groups of animals entering shelters and by injecting thousands of animals with a fatal dose of poison every year, these actions are not only inconsistent with the mission of an animal rights organization, they are the antithesis of one. Only one question remains: Why is anyone still donating to PETA?

So, do celebrities who endorse PETA to prove their "right on" credentials need to take a step back?

Do you support PETA, have you given money to them?

I love animals and support dog rescue but there was always something cultish about PETA. And anyone who wants to ban fishing is off my radar!

If you dig through their site they do admit that they are against animals beingkept as pets and don’t believe that animals created through breathing (where humans have interfered) should even exist at all. The founder of PETA also formerly worked euthanizing strays. This is an old story.

I assume you mean "created through breeding"?

It is not really an old story, not when their public stance and image nets them in excess of $35 million dollars per annum in the US and countless more world wide.

I've never heard any of this, and I adhere to their shopping list (ie cosmetic list) all the time.
I must admit I thought it had gotten very, I dunno, fundamentalist. Companies that had always been given the clear had disappeared - not into being shamed on the blacklist, but just disappeared off any list.

Quality OP.
Interesting stuff indeed.
I find their fanaticism disturbing and have always thought that they were hiding just how extreme their views on animal welfare is.
This is inexplicable behaviour from an organisation that purports to have animal welfare at the apex of their concerns.
Or maybe not so inexplicable; exactly what do people think will happen to all the cows, pigs, sheep, chickens etc that couldn't survive outside of human care if we do give up meat?
Wholesale slaughter or cruelly let them be whittled down by nature's methods: starvation, disease, wild dogs (no pets remember) etc?

Spare a thought for a poor Italian plumber named Mario.
And the poor Pokemons.
How long before they go after Ribser and The Furbs?


PETA did not disclose in its statement how many actual, living, breathing animals died waiting for rescue while the organization spent its time and money campaigning against fiction.

Whoops, yeah breeding.

I’ll dig out a short video someone sent me on this a wile back and post it later. Their belief is that any animal created through human intervention is a mistake and should be culled.

They paint themselves differently in the media and spin their ideas to appeal to a wider audience. They usually will criticise someone of animal cruelty for publicity without stating their own views.

Huzzah!

I was saying "bunch of arseholes" for years now. Honestly. I have alibis.

All aggressive marketing with celebrities wanting to be seen to be right on.
