PETA’S FULL OF SHEETA: PETA Hires Lobbyist to Kill Bill That Would Restrain Their Pet Killing

If you hate PETA you’ll love this post.

The Virginia Senate voted overwhelmingly for a bill that would restrict PETA’s mass killing of dogs and cats at its Norfolk headquarters; but PETA has hired a crack lobbyist in an effort to push for the vote to fail tomorrow in the Virginia House of Delegates.

Senate Bill 1381 would redefine the purpose of a private shelter, requiring these to stress life-saving and adoption. The bill is an effort to thwart PETA’s practice of killing almost every animal surrendered into its care. In 2014, for instance, PETA poisoned over 88% of the dogs and cats taken in.
