With the passing of Paul Newman, animals and the people who care about them have lost a dedicated friend and advocate.
Beyond his work as an actor, Newman's companies—Newman's Own and Newman's Own Organics—placed a particular emphasis on minimizing the suffering of animals. PETA's shopping guide at VegCooking.com features a dozen Newman's Own products that don't include animal-derived ingredients. Newman's Own Organics also introduced a line of foods for dogs and cats that benefit animals in more ways than one: The products are not tested on animals, and the profits from the sales are donated to animal protection organizations.
To pay tribute to this extraordinary man, let us carry on his tradition of showing kindness and compassion to all beings every day.
Welcome to Day 7 of the Michael Vick dogfighting indictment. PETA is still being inundated with calls and emails about the case, and we’re still working round the clock to make sure that the NFL and Vick’s sponsors send a real message to fans about the cruelty of dogfighting, rather than just sitting around to see what will happen next. I’ll have some more updates for you in a little while, but in the meantime, here are some great photos from today’s PETA demonstration outside Falcons HQ. You can be certain that there’s more where that came from.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
