PETA's Killing Program

We here at CairoScene are animal lovers. But what does PETA do with all that donated money? Kill animals, of course.

If you are a pet lover, then this article is important for you to read, but warning: it will make you nauseous. PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has proven to be quite the hypocrites. One would assume that the organisation would be a safe haven for abandoned animals. This however, couldn't be farther from the truth. In 2011, PETA managed to kill 96% of the animals they took in. In fact, in the last year, PETA has killed 29,426 dogs, cats, rabbits, and other domestic animals, this is according to Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater.

The numbers seem skeptically skewed, but sometimes pictures say more than words, and often numbers that feel distant are brought to front.

Coincidentally, PETA headqurters is on Front Street where these atrocities take place.

PETA truly believes that people have the right to kill animals, but they believe they must do it "humanely." Apparently, that means poisoning them with overdoses of barbiturates. We could understand this if the animals were suffering or terminally ill, but not when they are perfectly healthy. In 2012, 733 dogs entered the PETA building, they killed 602 of them, only 12 of them were adopted. Of the 1,110 cats, 1045 were put to death. Only four were adopted.

Many of the animals lovers who publicly condemn PETA's killing program are met with threats of lawsuit. This is unlikely considering they have would have to disclose what actually happens which is not pretty by any means.

PETA subscribes to the “pitbull policy”. If they had there way, this dog would be killed in every shelter, because it looks like a “pitbull”. According to Ingrid Newkirk, PETA's founders, a growing number of shelters are banning the adoption of pitbulls and calling for their automatic destruction.

If at this point you are super angry and want to see more and read testimonials, we recommend checking out the investigation by Nathan J. Whinograd. It is full with plenty of evidence and sources to check out. The only question is if you know anyone still donating to this killing. If the answer is yes, then it is your duty to open their eyes. If you know someone moving back to Cairo make sure they don't leave their animal friends in unethical hands.
