Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Way to Go, United Way!

Written by PETA | September 30, 2010

Over the years, we’ve appealed to the United Way to do away with cruel fundraisers such as kiss-a-pig contests, puppy raffles, and greased-pig chases, so we are pleased to see that the charity is getting the message. Check out this cool footrace in which all the participants have two legs instead of four. No animals suffered for this fundraiser!

Remember, you can support our campaigns to get animals out of sports such as horse racing and help all animals suffering around the world by donating to PETA through your workplace giving program. If your company doesn’t participate, ask your human resources department to get on board.

    i wont donate to them because they STILL ARE CLOSED MINDED, they wont support only charities that dont fund animal research. they fund ANYBODY, why?… they cant understand what said?.. are they NUTS. even as far back as polio, they still fund animal research charities. “work on prevention of polio was LONG DELAYED by an erroneous conception of the nature of the human disease based on MISLEADING experimental models of the disease in monkeys” albert sabin, m.d., during a 1984 house subcommittee. ps, visit reform march of INSANITY: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results – albert einstein

    That’s great! I went to a county fair about 5 years ago and they did a greased pig chase. I never saw anything like that until then and I thought it was sad and not fun at all. Of course everyone around me was laughing and having a great time.
