Y’see, they’re not required to report animals turned over to them for the purpose of humane euthanasia, so their “why we kill” explanation is complete bullshit. They’re required by the state to report animals turned over to them FOR THE PURPOSE OF ADOPTION, which is the paperwork they have to file with the state of VA every year, which is where these numbers come from. PETA is, quite simply, lying. A 95% kill rate puts them among the worst shelters in the nation. Any shelter would euthanize an animal so badly wounded it was in agony with no chance of recovery - that’s not newsworthy. When you’re claiming that 95% of your intake falls into that category, that’s… bullshit. Best analysis of the numbers here.
