2008: A Great Year for Animals!

Written by PETA | December 19, 2008

“So, PETA,” you might be asking as the end of the year quickly approaches, “what exactly did y’all do this year? Anything interesting?”

We’re glad you asked, as it just so happens that we’ve put together this video, which just so happens to highlight some of the sweet PETA goings-on from 2008. Watch it and tell us what you think:

“But oh, dear PETA Files,” you might be saying, “I wish I could read more about all the cool stuff I saw in that video.” Well, friends, you have come to the right place!

We at the PETA Files are more than happy to tell you all about how we took to the streets as M&Ms, Trollsens, and naked ladies in the shower. We love telling you about PETA celeb friends, from rather-go-naked Eva, Amanda, and Jenna, to vegetarians Shanna, Mac, and John. Oh, and of course we know everything about doggie- and kitty-loving Fred, Carrie Ann, and Simon as well as horse-defending Kristen, Pink, and Alec. Ya know, not to name-drop or anything.

And don’t worry—we can also tell you all about victories such as the new animal welfare policies for KFC suppliers in Canada, the spay-and-neuter ordinance in Los Angeles,’s promise to go fur-free, the E.U.’s ban on seal fur, and the new regulations for horseracing—not to mention our investigations at a Hormel supplier and Aviagen.

Of course, if you’d rather see more pictures, you can also check out our awesome end-of-year slideshow.

This has been quite the year, wouldn’t you say? What was your favorite PETA moment from 2008?

    This year has been so great for animals and I can’t wait to se what’s going to come in 2009!! I think Ingrid is one of the most incredible people alive! This video was refreshing to watch it’s just a huge relief for me to see all of these victories and to know that we ARE making a difference and we ARE helping animals.

    This is truly a wonderful video! 2008 has been one of the best years in recent memory for animal rights. Much was accomplished but there is still much left for all of us to do. GO PETA!!!!

    This video brought tears to my eyes. This is the type of inspiration that drives me to continue advocating for animal rights. We see so many horrors inflicted upon animals through the year that I need to know that my choices are making a difference. Thank you PETA! Thank everyone who has honored the lives of those who do not have a voice.
