My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Norfolk, VA, USA
Euthanization is NOT the answer here, I have read many reviews in this section having to do with this controversial topic. I still fail to see why PETA considers this a solution. I currently lead one of the most followed anti-peta pages on facebook, and operate another website on the topic. I will not mention the pages names. PETA preaches fairness and freedom for animals, but has hundreds of thousands put down. They play it off as euthanization when, in fact, it is in cold blood. They tell the public that they do it only in extreme cases when the animal is sick, or when the animal is "unadoptable." The truth behind this is that PETA lies to save face. Many of the animals are put down because (and I am quoting a Peta Rep here) "[they] simply do not have the funds to keep so many animals alive and healthy." Many of the animals brought to PETA are even killed within 24 hours of them arriving at their shelter. In fact, in the year 2008 peta's adopt/kill ratio was about 2000:1. This is an awful organization, and I want to spread the word. Your money is in much better hands if you were to donate to WSPA.
How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
Will you recommend this organization to others?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Your claims are without merit. It is true that PETA states that it does not have the funds to take all of the 4 million dogs and cats who will be euthanized this year (and next). That's why PETA is a leader in promoting spay-neuter and shelter adoptions at a national level, and providing spay-neuter surgeries in the indigent south. While PETA, local animal shelter professionals, and activists are frustrated that some 15,000 animals had to be euthanized in 2011 at the 10 animal shelters that are within 45 minutes of our headquarters, our united work has decreased that sad figure by more than 10,000 in the last 10 years. Since starting our first mobile clinic in 2001, PETA has sterilized more than 87,000 animals, including more than 9,200 in the 2012 fiscal year alone! One local animal shelter compared its intake of puppies to the same period in a previous year and reported that it took in 100 fewer puppies and attributed that decrease almost entirely to PETA’s spay-and-neuter program. Of course when guardians bring their unadoptable (often suffering) animals to PETA the humane thing to do is euthanize them (using the same method veterinarians use with our own beloved cats and dogs when we must say goodbye) immediately not hold them! For the facts on PETA's lifesaving work for animals, see PETASaves.com Finally, how odd that somebody who supposedly cares about animals puts their energies into two "anti-PETA websites." One wonders what your priorities really are.
