Win ‘The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights’

Written by Michelle Kretzer | December 9, 2011

This Saturday is International Animal Rights Day, and we’re celebrating by giving away a copy of The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights, a page-turner that’s jam-packed with ways that anyone, anywhere, can make a huge difference for animals.

To enter for a chance to win the book, post a comment telling us what you’ll be doing for animals this Saturday. Here are some suggestions to help get your creative juices flowing:

  • Tell a company that is still abusing animals to get with the times. PETA’s Action Center makes it easy to pick a target or two (or 10).
  • Wear an animal rights T-shirt. If you don’t have one, well, you’ve come to the right place!
  • Clean out your closet and give your leather, wool, and fur to a homeless shelter.
  • Take the Pledge to Be Vegan.
  • Post a video, such as the one showing Ringling trainers who beat elephants, to your Facebook page.
  • Give yourself a makeover with new cruelty-free products and toss out any products you have that were tested on animals.
  • Take a chained dog or a shelter dog for a walk, or give him or her some straw bedding and treats.

A winner will be chosen at random from the animal-friendly comments that are submitted. The contest will end on December 16, and we’ll contact the winner by December 30. Make sure that you read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.

    I found out last week that my friends were planning a fishing trip for this Saturday, so I took the opportunity to show them a path to a kinder world, and managed to convince them that helping innocent animals might be a nicer way to spend a Saturday, rather than harming them. Now everybody is coming to my place for a healthy Saturday lunch; vegan of course 😀

    Bought myself a “Fake for the animals’ sake!” – t-shirt. Can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ve always known, how important work PETA does, along with numerous other organizations, but only now I’m really going to take actions on my part to do something about the evil in this world, too! I’d love to give a new home for an abandoned dog, and I can’t believe how in America people buy dogs like clothes, and when they decide it doesn’t fit, they just give it away, or worse, have it put to sleep. In Finland, we have this problem called “Summer-Cat”, when people take cats in spring, only to discover in autumn that it doesn’t go with the lifestyle anymore. Abandoned dogs aren’t as big problem here as in abroad, thank God for that. Me and my boyfriend are about to have a puppy, and when we finally do, we’re going to give that little guy so much love, that it’ll be the luckiest puppy in the world. Forever.

    Myself and my whole family went vegan about two weeks ago after watching earthlings. Since that time we have gotten rid of any leather wool products and are in the process of re-furnishing our home with animal friendly products.

    I went vegan 7 days ago. It’s been a week and I feel terrific. My wife is now a vegetarian as well (still trying to convince her to give up the eggs) 😉 we donated some money and time to our local no-kill shelter tonight with our babies to teach them the meaning of kindness and compassion to ALL creatures .

    I adopted a sweet corgi Wednesday and today I’m introducing him to a female Chihuahua I’m hoping to adopt. Hopefully they’ll love each other and both sweety-pies will have a new home together this holiday season. I’m also very proud of how wonderfully my daughters are taking good care of him.

    I’m wearing my Peta “love me, don’t eat me” shirt!

    I’m going to go vegan. Been veggie for a while. So now I’m taking the plunge, can’t wait. I’m also trying to arrange some kid of Christmas fundraiser for animals so they can have a christmas too. Also I’m going to the park regurly to feed a little Robin thats recently hatched. He’s doing ok, but just in case.

  • Anna says:

    I’m going to be wearing my peta hoodie and shopping for vegan makeup! I buy cruelty free products, but I want to completely cut out all animal by-products in everything I own!

  • Niki says:

    this Saturday, I’m going to volunteer at my local shelter and also hand out leaflets around town, wearing my ‘flesh is for zombies’ shirt:)

    I WILL BE WALKING SHELTER DOGS! <3 wooo! never knew you could do that! doing it all weekend, and from now on, they deserve to get out of that cage and into the real world <3

  • Louisa Gabriel says:

    My day will start with taking my dog Libby, a rescue dog from a shelter for a run and a game of fetch.  Together we will then take the old bedding and blankets we have collected to the animal shelter to help them stay warm this winter.  Libby loves to visit the shelter and play with the other dogs and is always willing to share her treats with them.  Then it’s on to. Heist as shopping but this year I will be taking PETA literature with me to leave in the sickening fur vault and nordstroms and then take some to leave in some shoe boxes at DSW.  Then I’ll end the day snuggled with Libby checking out the PETA website for new links to tweet and post on Facebook.  I know it’s not a lot but I hope that every little thing I do tomorrow will raise awareness and get at least one more person standing up for animal rights.

    Tengo la posibilidad de escribir algo en uno de los periódicos de mi localidad la Cd. de Durango, Méx. Así que publicaré, dando el crédito correspondiente, el maravilloso MANIFIESTO que fue presentado en la Marcha Silenciosa de Madrid en 2007 por el Día internacional de los Derechos de los Animales,donde 500 mil personas marcharon en silencio llevando una vela en la mano, recordando a los millones de animales que son maltratados. El manifiesto está en Es un texto hermoso que deseo con gran ainco sea leido y deje una reflexión en quienes lo conozcan.

    For the last few weeks, I have been trying to find out how to pressure a certain western themed amusement park into putting an end to the exploitation of horses by retiring the Butterfield Stage Coach ride. Tourists wanting the thrill of uncomfortable old west travel can board the steam locomotive and imagine what that short, uncomfortable ride would have been like if it departed from California and ended in Missouri in the late 19th to early 20th centuries. A trip of over 1,000 miles in the stifling heat of summer or freezing plains winters with only the coal stove in the corner of those wooden cars (yes, they frequently caught fire from the stove). Just like the new tv show, truly Hell On Wheels. At least they did not require horses to pull them.
