Uncompromising Stands on Animal Rights

PETA has always been known for uncompromising, unwavering views on animal rights. We aren’t afraid to make the difficult comparisons, say the unpopular thing, or point out the uncomfortable truth, if it means that animals will benefit.

PETA’s “Uncompromising Stands on Animal Rights” is an overview of what sets PETA apart. Our positions may be controversial, but they are always true to our driving mission: to stop animal abuse worldwide.
