NORFOLK - In 2011, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals killed 96 percent of the animals in its care, according to documents from the Virginia Department of Agriculture.
Of the 2,050 animals PETA took in last year, 1,965 were euthanized, according to the records, which were obtained and published online by the non-profit Center for Consumer Freedom. Only 28 pets were adopted out, and 34 were transferred to other animal groups, the documents revealed.
Since 1998, PETA put down more than 27,000 animals at its Norfolk headquarters, the records showed. The majority of the pets euthanized over the years were cats and dogs surrendered by their owners.
A PETA spokesperson said the organization would rather give animals "a painless death" than risk putting them in a situation where they would be abused, neglected, or sold for research, in an interview last year with Newsweek.
Another representative said most animals taken in by PETA are "somehow unadoptable," according to a report by The Daily Caller.
The Center for Consumer Freedom posted the documents from the Department of Agriculture on its website, PETAKillsAnimals.com.
