Not counting the pets PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 90 percent of the animals it took in during 2005.
LMAO, here's the key part everyone. Not counting the pets PETA spayed and neutered.
The animals that they spay and neuter are the ones that they know are healthy and can go to good homes. They don't spay/neuter them if they're badly injured or extremely aggresive because they know there is a high chance they will have to be put down.
Plus, if a dog is bleeding his guts out are you going to try and stitch him up first or neuter him? Therefore, the animals that they take in and try to save but die on the operating table, are considered part of that 90% of animals put down. Also, if they take in dogs that could possibly have rabies because of a bad bite the law says that they must put it down unless the owner comes to claim in within a week. Obviously, they are not going to spay or neuter those animals.
So, overall, many animals that come into any shelter or organization are going to have to be euthanized. Those that are going to be euthanized are not spayed or neutered. That happens once an animal is up for adoption or once they have been adopted. So, of the animals that PETA didn't spay or neuter, less than 10% actully survived. Likely, these pets were given to other shelters and were then spayed/neutered there. Or maybe not. Who knows. But my point is that this article is just playing with words. PETA doesn't kill 90% of the animals they take in. You've got to read carefully.
Don't even know how I came across this post, LOL.
