(ANIMAL SHELTERS) Animal lovers across the U.S.—including a large number of PETA supporters—are undoubtedly outraged to hear about the shockingly high euthanasia rates, yet simultaneously low adoption numbers at PETA’s animal shelter in Norfolk, Virginia. Still, PETA defends their euthanasia policy, claiming they accept animals regardless of their condition, while referring to their facility as a “shelter of last resort.” It’s clear PETA does not embrace the growing no-kill movement as optimistically as many other animal welfare groups, including the ASPCA. Read on for more details on the no-kill movement and PETA’s procedures at the links below. — Global Animal

  1. I agree that they make animal lovers look unhinged- I am just tired of articles that mislead about their euthanasia statistics. AND I believe that this no-kill movement and their main mantra "pet overpopulation is a myth" is the most dangerous thing ever to happen to shelter/rescue efforts. I also believe that they are in cahoots with breeders and Berman http://bermanexposed.org/
