Fight to Stop PETA’s Killing Grows

What You Can Do To Help
My website http://www.whyPETAkills.org which describes PETA’s recent theft and killing of Maya–a happy and healthy dog–from her home was trending on Reddit yesterday, hitting the No. 4 spot last night.
Reddit reports about 174 million monthly visits. Combined with the 5.1 million page views about PETA on my Facebook page this past week, as well as news stories around the country including television news stations and newspapers like the New York Post, the Huffington Post, and Gannett papers across the country, more and more people are learning the truth.
In response to growing public outcry over Maya’s illegal killing, the Attorney General of Virginia just announced he is opening up an Animal Protection Unit to oversee the prosecution of these kinds of cases. You can watch the news report about this development by clicking here.
Tragically, Maya was not the only one to fall victim to PETA’s campaign of companion animal extermination. In 2014, PETA took in 1,605 cats in 2014 and killed 1,536 (a kill rate of 96%). They transferred another 43 to kill shelters. If they were killed or displaced others who were killed, that would put the cat kill rate as high as 98%. They found homes for only 16, an adoption rate of 1%.
PETA also took in 1,021 dogs of which they killed 788 (a kill rate of 77%). Another 210 were transferred to kill shelters. Like the cats, if they were killed or displaced others who were killed, the dog death rate would also be as high as 98%. Only 23 were adopted.
What is being done to protect animals from PETA? And what can you do?
■As noted, the Virginia Attorney General has opened an animal protection unit to prosecute cases like the theft and killing of Maya.
■The Virginia legislature is considering a bill which would require PETA to find homes for animals, rather than just kill them. SB 1381 passed the Senate and will now be taken up by the House. If you live in Virginia, please contact your House Member and urge a “Yes” vote. If you do not live in Virginia, please share this with those who do.
■The No Kill Advocacy Center has filed a petition for rulemaking asking for more transparency in agencies licensed as “private shelters” like PETA. Such a rule change will protect families in Virginia, protect animals, and assist state regulators in monitoring the activities of its licensees like PETA, and thus prevent them from getting away with “murder.” Yesterday, I received a letter from the Commissioner of the Virginia Dept. of Agriculture & Consumer Services (VDACS) informing me that she has directed staff to pursue the petition. Virginians will have a chance to comment in favor of the rule change beginning Feb. 23.
■The No Kill Advocacy Center has also filed a petition with VDACS to revoke PETA’s status as a shelter today.
■Share, share, share. PETA took in nearly $52,000,000 from unsuspecting donors last year who never could have imagined that the money they sent PETA to save animals would be used to slaughter them instead.
PLEASE REMEMBER: IF YOU LIVE IN VIRGINIA CONTACT YOUR HOUSE MEMBER AND URGE A “YES” VOTE ON SB 1381.
IF YOU DON’T LIVE IN VIRGINIA, PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO DOES.
Together we can stop PETA’s mass murder of Pets!
Why PETA Kills
In the last 12 years, PETA has killed 31,250 companion animals. While PETA claims the animals it takes in and kills are “unadoptable,” this is a lie. It is a lie because employees have admitted it is a lie. They have described 8 week old, 10…
