    Ingrid Newkirk

    Animal rights activist Ingrid Newkirk has said many times "animals are not ours to eat, nor ours to wear,not ours to experiment (on) and not ours for entertainment or any other explotive purpose." Researched from website: http://www.peta.org The co-founder and president of PETA (People for the Etheical Treatment of Animals) told Michael Specter of "The New Yorker" of her actions while bringing abandon kittens to an animal shelter early in her association with animals.Ingrid chose animal related work after seeing the conditions the animals were living in those areas.She shockingly admitted going into the shelter when no one was there and killing a thousand animals so they would not suffer mal treatment according to http://www.wikipedia.org under PETA. Animal advocate Nathan Winograd posts on his blog on 3/16/2011 some shocking facts. Please visit:

    Location Stats

    PETA headquarters is located at 501 Front Street Norfork,Virginia 23501 Phone:757-622-7382 Email: info@peta.org The PETA Humane Society accepts companion animals relinquished by individuals. Some of these people were expecting some of those animals to be adopted out to another person. In fact the majority of those are euthanized according to the mandatory reporting at the location in Virginia. Local newspapapers and reporters have found people who have given interviews over 7 years stating their companion pet was expected to be given another home and not euthanized when they relinquished it to PETA. Your local research can find archived information in 2007 and other years giving you names of real people this happened to that gave their pet to PETA to find a new home only to be shocked their pet was euthanized.

This means they are a tax exempt organization, however all their information remains public through open documents available at the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. There are statistics at the online animal reporting site.

    Euthansia

    People for Ethical Treatment of Animals does not support a "NO KILL" policy through the Humane Society organization type they claim. This in effect means that if PETA does not put forth the effort to find homes for animals delivered to them, their decision can be euthansia. Few wild animals are released back to their habitat, while more than six times the animals taken in are euthanized which is verified by reports online at the site offered above. Dog and Cat euthansia is a greater percentage of killing than wild animals at the PETA Humane Society, see the shocking info for yourself. For a summary see:
    http://www.petakillsanimals.com/petasdirtysecret.cfm dated 3/22/2011 with PDF attachment for verification. A quick statement of over 25,000 animals have been euthanized since 1998 a completely shocking 95% of all dogs and cats in the PETA Humane Society are killed.

    Campaigns

    Being an animal activist group,PETA's shocking campaigns have been planned out by hired people, volunteers as well as PETA employees. HRH Queen Elizabeth, Ministry of Defense (MOD) were approached when she visited Canada in 7/2010. PETA individuals requested the Queen stop using bear fur for the head pieces on her guards at the Palace in England. She permitted a substitute to be offered in place,but found it unacceptable. It is not unusual for scantily clothed women and sometimes men to pose bringing shocking PETA messages to public by standers. Some of the campaigns from the east coast to the west coast have been violent ones causing bodily harm as well as property damage that have been connected to PETA. Those have been highlighted in local state court documents if you want to research PETA affiliation with explosive results to citizens. Through cunning lawyering, Ingrid herself has been in court, paid fines and left the judicial system to return to her position in PETA.




Final Thoughts

A good resource before donating to any organization is Charity Navigator listed below in supporting links.Please donate to your local "No Kill" shelter so all the money goes to help animals and not to unknown areas.
See "snakesmom" on LM5 site to read how she has given you lots of smart information about dogs and cats that she has researched so well.The more we are aware of horrible animal statistics, the sooner we will do something about changing life for companion pets.

    I love that you took the time to research this thoroughly! I never trusted PETA due to some local shinnigans they've pulled. I didn't know it went this deep!

  • TigerStripes 9/16/2011 Flag This Comment

    Great points that most don't know. I can't stand PETA and applaud your list to open other peoples eyes about this organization that most do not know.

  • HandymanBob 4/16/2011 Flag This Comment

    I did not know the details about PETA but have always known there were negative things about them. Thanks for pointing them out! H5

  • Apalmer001 3/27/2011 Flag This Comment

    I am glad you wrote this article because of the fact that they are not following a no kill policy bothers me. They are basically fundraising, too lazy to work for the money they get to adopt out animals and supposedly kill them mercifully. There is nothing merciful about being put down. Glad you are writing about something you are so passionate about, people need to know. H5

  • tracysmith159 3/25/2011 Flag This Comment

    WOW.

  • jseven 3/23/2011 Flag This Comment

    I have long thought a LOT of this shocking information about PETA myself. This is a wonderfully researched list and I hope the next time anyone thinks they are helping animals by cutting a check to PETA that they research it and read this. H5! :)
