The PETA you know and love

PETA (pronounced like pita, but much less useful) folks don't like you to know this:

PETA’s “Animal Record” report for 2008, filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that the animal rights group killed 95 percent of the dogs and cats in its care last year. During all of 2008, PETA found adoptive homes for just seven pets.

Just seven animals -- out of the 2,216 it took in. PETA just broke its own record.
One may argue that placement of animals is always a difficult task, but shouldn't these numbers make PETA creeps a bit more humble, if anything?
