This is why PETA stands for Please Educate These A**Holes.

Via the Washington Times (h/t Weasel Zippers):

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals puts to sleep an estimated 2,000 dogs and cats each year, a new report finds.

The New York Times found that the animal rights group kills far more each year than it places for adoption. Last year, only 19 were adopted from its shelter; the year before, it was 24.

The statistic comes as no-kill shelters around the nation have made great gains in adoptions. In New York alone, for instance, the kill statistic for sheltered animals fell from 31,701 in 2003 to 8,252 in 2012 —  meaning that more and more animals are being placed in homes rather than euthanized, Newser reported.

But PETA’s shelters haven’t made such great strides in the no-kill trend.

The fact that PETA kills 105x as many animals as they save doesn’t stop them from grandstanding for just about any living creature.  A few years ago, the group complained about the President’s “execution” of a fly, even sending Obama a device that would humanely capture the pesky insect should a similar situation arise.
