Here's a tidbit from a friend I received and shows PETA's true colors-- Finally someone exposing these hypocrites
Hypocritical Animal Rights Group’s 2008 Disclosures Bring Pet Death Toll To 21,339 WASHINGTON DC – Today the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) published documents online showing that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) killed 95 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2008. Despite years of public outrage over its euthanasia program, the animal rights group kills an average of 5.8 pets every day at its Norfolk, VA headquarters. According to public records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 2,124 pets last year and placed only seven in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 21,339 dogs and cats have died at the hands of PETA workers. Despite having a $32 million budget, PETA does not operate an adoption shelter. PETA employees make no discernible effort to find homes for the thousands of pets they kill every year. Last year, the Center for Consumer Freedom petitioned Virginia’s State Veterinarian to reclassify PETA as a slaughterhouse. CCF Research Director David Martosko said: “PETA hasn’t slowed down its hypocritical killing machine one bit, but it keeps browbeating the rest of society with a phony ‘animal rights’ message. What about the rights of the thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens that die in PETA’s headquarters building?” Martosko added: “Since killing pets is A-OK with PETA, why should anyone listen to their demands about eating meat, using lab rats for medical research, or taking children to the circus?” CCF obtained PETA’s “Animal Record” filings since 1998 from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Members of the public can see these documents at PetaKillsAnimals.com. In addition to exposing PETA’s hypocritical record of killing defenseless animals, the Center for Consumer Freedom has publicized the animal rights group’s ties to violent activists, and shed light on its aggressive message-marketing to children. The Center for Consumer Freedom is a nonprofit coalition supported by restaurants, food companies, and consumers, working together to promote personal responsibility and protect consumer choices.
For media comment, contact our media department at 202-463-7112 ext. 115 ---ALSO---Virginia Asked to Classify PETA as aSlaughterhouse Thursday, January 17, 2008 The Center for Consumer Freedom, a non-profit trade group representing the interests of manufacturers and retailers, formally petitioned the Commonwealth of Virginia to reclassify PETA as a "slaughterhouse" .
An official report filed by PETA itself shows that the animal rights group put to death nearly every dog, cat, and other pet it took in for adoption in 2006. During that year, the well-known animal rights group managed to find adoptive homes for just 12 animals. The organization killed 2,981 of the 3,061 "companion animals" it took in.
According to David Martosko, Research Director for CCF... "It is absurd to classify PETA as a 'humane society' when its employees are slaughtering nearly every companion animal they bring in. PETA has killed over 17,000 pets since 1998. Given the group's astonishing habit of killing adoptable dogs and cats with such ruthless efficiency, it's only fair that the state of Virginia refer to PETA as a slaughterhouse. " CCF's petition was directed to Virginia'sDepartment of Agriculture and Consumer Services. If approved, the new classification would force PETA to abide an entirely new set of laws and regulations.
The Center of Consumer Freedom has set PETA in its sights because PETA has targeted the companies that CCF represents, such as food makers, department stores, and textile companies. PETA's most successful publicity campaigns have been those against the fur industry, arguing that killing animals for fur is akin to cruelty. Yet ironically, PETA itself is killing thousands perfectly healthy and adoptable animals for no better reason than just ideology. Here's a great blog, http://www.petakillsanimals.com/ , for more truth of this murderous organization.
This a great picture taken by a very talented young lady, showing the true nature of pitbulls, thank you. www.stop-bsl.com works very hard at exposing the the criminal organizations (HSUS and PETA and other corrupt local agencies) for what they are and supporting our breed with the help of other responsible owners. Please get involved, do not be afraid to make yourself heard. We as american citizens STILL have our rights and it is up to us to fight to maintain our rights and defend our friends who look at us through a collar.
Wednesday, February 18, 2009 "These dogs would most certainly kill any other dog they could get to." Here's John Goodwin's (HSUS 'dogfighting czar' *blech*) response to the Wilkes County Pitbull killings. It's being posted around the net as pet lovers are still reeling from the events of yesterday:
Those particular fighting dogs in Wilkes County, NC were very, very different than the Vick dogs. Whereas Michael Vick was a pro football player that fought dogs as a hobby, the breeder of these dogs was a globally recognized professional dogfighter. Vick was not a good breeder, and he lost most of his fights. His dogs were a poor representation of true fighting dogs. With the Wilkes County dogs, even the puppies as young as 8 weeks of age where attacking each other and drawing blood. We had to buy new cages to separate litters of young pups.
With the Vick dogs it cost nearly $1 million to “rehab” 49 dogs, and still half of them are in solitary kennel runs, unable to socialize with other dogs. In this case there were 127 dogs, and they are far more aggressive than the Vick dogs.
The “misleading claims” have come from a couple of individuals that never saw these dogs, and choose to throw stones on the internet. I saw these dogs, and in fact handled many of them while they were being evaluated. These dogs would most certainly kill any other dog they could get to.
It is very sad that people are also missing the bigger story, that our work has shut down one of the top breeders of fighting dogs in the United States. Dogfighters are seeing their hero’s go to prison. This is having an effect, and many dogfighters are leaving that world behind as they recognize the cost of doing business is too great. HSUS is the only organization in the United States that has an entire campaign that works full time on animal fighting issues.
I support pit bull rescue, but there has to be a group that goes farther and hits at the root of the problem. That is what we are doing by putting leaders in the dogfighting criminal underworld out of business.
Lastly, Wilkes County euthanizes 3,000 healthy, adoptable animals a year simply because there are not enough good homes opening their doors to these needy animals. I find it disturbing that the groups clamoring for media attention over these 127 dogs raise no fuss, and offer no assistance, for the other 3,000 dogs put down in that county each year.

Saturday, September 6, 2008 HSUS Dogfight Czar Goodwin Lies About New York
It ain't necessarily so if it comes from the Humane Society of the United States
Hint for journalism students: take those HSUS press releases for what they're worth. Jack shit.
Goodwin, HSUS's "issues expert" on dogfighting has just one mission: get HSUS propaganda in front of the public. That's what he's paid to do, and that's what he does. All day, everyday.
Nothing but propaganda from the Humane Society of the United States
The media had better wise up and start checking the "facts" HSUS and their "Issues Expert" John Goodwin feeds them. This could get embarassing.
Take the pickle Metro -- which styles itself as the "world's largest global newspaper" now finds itself in.
Metro, a long, long way from the Wall Street Journal and a publication whose finances are shaky at best, got royally snookered by Goodwin and HSUS earlier this week.
Or maybe it was a simple cash transaction -- money paid out by HSUS for media placement in a financially-stressed, third rate publication?
To quote Metro's story on how New York is the "capital of dogfighting"--
"For 30 years, the Sporting Dog Journal, the central organ of the dog-fighting world, came out of New York. “It had 6,000 subscribers and ran 120 pages a month, with several hundred detailed fight reports,” Goodwin said."
Metro reports old "news" like it happened yesterday
Get a clue, Metro. The publisher of the Sporting Dog Journal was busted five years ago on dogfight-related charges. Back in 2003.
Friccione went to prison. Despite the "weak" laws in New York.
Expertise from books
The Metro article then passes on Goodwin's titillating rendition of what an organized dogfight entails. But don't mistake his description for expertise. You can get the same thing from one of Richard Stratton's books -- available via Amazon.com -- if you're really in to that kind of stuff. Did Goodwin get his "expert knowledge" from a book?
I think the facination with gruesome dogfight material in some circles -- particularly some "rescue" groups -- is similar to porn addiction. Some people get their rocks off in the sickest ways.
Which makes publications like "Metro" -- and John Goodwin -- panderers.
Just make shit up: "NY is the dogfight capital of the country" ?
Not according to the ASPCA, its not. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is charged with animal cruelty law -- including laws against dogfighting --enforcement in New York City says. . .
"Organized dog fighting in New York City does not appear to be prevalent, and the ASPCA rarely sees arrests for such activity."
Fake "dogfight crisis" based on no information
The ASPCA also comments that. . .
"Currently, there are no reliable statistics [that address the prevalence of dog fighting state -by-state]. This is an underground, illegal activity so it is almost impossible to get accurate information about its prevalence."
So other than its own press release, what kind of information did HSUS and Goodwin base themselves on? Huh?
Imagine of CNN got wind of all of this. How humiliating for Metro.
Controlling the news: HSUS's bevy of friendly bloggers
Patrick Kwan, HSUS's New York State Director, emailed the Metro story link out to his list of friendly bloggers. And they dutifully put the story out there.
Hey, in a world where a lot of people can't distinguish between a blog and a news article, why not?
Another internet "truth" successfully created.
John Goodwn is an expert. An expert liar.
Unless you want to dance to a tune piped out by convicted terrorist, employed by an animal extremist organization which despite all its propaganda does not operate a single animal shelter, check the facts before you believe a word of what John Goodwin says.
You're in for a big surprise.

Have something coming up on this but can't say what just yet. After the evidence is received I can update. But if anyone has cases (AZ, TX, NY, LA, GA, etc etc) where dogs were killed or seized w/no charges, we are interested. This crap (killing) needs to be stopped.
