Exactly! In fact there is one near where I live that won't put an animal down at all. If they don't get adopted they just keep the animal as one of their own pets. It's a small farm and work strictly from donations.

In my county there are approximately 4,000 cats and dogs euthanized at the local shelter in any given 12-month period. Exactly how many animals is this local shelter prepared to keep as one of their own pets?

I understand that many people have an aversion to euthanizing healthy dogs and cats. But anyone who believes that it is not necessary is unaware of the scope of the pet overpopulation problem in the U.S.

The real solution is to spay and neuter most dogs and cats except for responsible purebred breeders. Eventually this would bring the pet population down to the same number as the available homes.

From what I read about the Norfolk PETA, spaying and neutering is one area where they have done an outstanding job. According to the documentation linked by your source they spayed or neutered several times as many animals as they euthanized.

I would still like to know the circumstances under which the animals that they euthanized were released to them.

Their records indicate that there are other agencies in the area that are placing animals for adoption. So is it possible that the animals that they receive for reasons other than spaying or neutering have already been declared unadoptable before PETA receives them? There is simply not enough information given here or at any source that I have found so far to make that determination.

As if anyone needed proof that these people are "certifiable"...
Here's the "will" of the PETA leader...

Quote:
1. Upon my death, it is my wish that my body be used in a manner that draws attention to needless animal suffering and exploitation. To accomplish this, I direct that my body be donated to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), 501 Front Street, Norfolk, Virginia 23510, to be used in whatever manner it chooses in order to accomplish the specified purpose, with the hope that most of my body will be put to use in the United States, with parts also dispatched to awaken the public consciousness of governments and citizens in the United Kingdom, where I was born, in India, my beloved childhood home, and in Canada, Germany, and France.

2. While the final decision as to the use of my body remains with PETA, I make the following suggested directions:

a. That the “meat” of my body, or a portion thereof, be used for a human barbecue, to remind the world that the meat of a corpse is all flesh, regardless of whether it comes from a human being or another animal, and that flesh foods are not needed;

b. That my skin, or a portion thereof, be removed and made into leather products, such as purses, to remind the world that human skin and the skin of other animals is the same and that neither is “fabric” nor needed, and that some skin be tacked up outside the Indian Leather Fair each year to serve as a reminder of the government’s need to abate the suffering of Indian bullocks who, after a life of extreme and involuntary servitude, as I have seen firsthand, are exported all over the world in this form;

c. That in remembrance of the elephant-foot umbrella stands and tiger rugs I saw, as a child, offered for sale by merchants at Connaught Place in Delhi, my feet be removed and umbrella stands or other ornamentation be made from them, as a reminder of the depravity of killing innocent animals, such as elephants, in order that we might use their body parts for household items and decorations;

....
PETA: Ingrid Newkirk's Unique Will

I just can't post the rest.
It's at the web-site if anybody wants to see the "thoroughness" of this crazy woman.

But you're missing the point of WHO is doing the euthanizing...

And person with common sense knows it's disappointing necessary...and when a local shelter does it, they come out and tell us it's a dissapointing necessity...

But this is PETA...and organization (supposedly) dedicated to SAVING animals...

You may think abortion is a necessity, too, and when Planned Parenthood performs them, you see nothing wrong...

But what if they were being performed by the priests St. Paul's cathedral?...I bet your jaw would drop and you'd be amazed at the hypocracy...

THAT is the point of showing PETA's actions...

But what agency does more to protect animals in this country? What animal rights group does the right support? I know you don't like PETA. And like the U.N. I see that you are almost joyfull when you find a story that shows someone being hypacritical. But what organization do you support to defend animals from mistreatment and abuse?

I do not see euthanasia as outside PETA's mission as I understand it. Evidently, neither do they. Humane and Animal Welfare societies all over the U.S. perform euthanasia on a regular basis.

I still would like to know the circumstances surrounding the acquisition of and decision to euthanize these animals. And I am not prepared to jump to any sort of judgment -- either pro or con -- without that information.
