Since 1998, PETA has opted to “put down” 21,339 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding homes for them. Worst of all, they dispose of their animals (some as young as 6 weeks old and healthy) in dumpsters behind malls. Animal lovers worldwide now have access to more than a decade’s worth of proof that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals find it cheaper to euthanize than foster animals.
p.s - PETA does not deny these claims. :(
