Here at PETA, we know more than the average bear about animal overpopulation. That's why we
advocate spaying and
neutering your animal companions and why we're also big fans of animal adoption.
Visit our Los Angeles office, and you'll see that most
desktop picture frames hold photos of adopted furry friends. They're members of
our family, and we treat them that way. When it comes to caring for them, one
thing we're guilty of is spoiling them a bit. We love to see our fur kids run,
jump, and tumble with their toys.
To spread the good word about playtime with companion animals,
we asked five PETA employees to share their favorite toy to buy for their
animal. Here's what they had to say.

Christine says … CatIt Style Scratcher
Even though it seems like the more money I spend on toys for
my two cats, the more they lean toward playing with bottle caps and shoe boxes,
I have had a lot of luck with cardboard scratch pads. Most recently, I bought
the Catit Style Scratcher, and my calico, Howdy, LOVES it. Not only does she
scratch it all throughout the day, she also likes napping on its unique shape
(not to mention that it saves my furniture from claw marks).
Sara says … KONG The Beast Rope
Chew Dog Toy
Toys don't last long in my house, and so anything that
remains intact for more than a day is a keeper! This KONG toy is my favorite
because it's indestructible while allowing my dogs to take turns playing
tug-of-war with one another.
Courtney says … Cottontail Cottage With Ramp
The Cottontail Cottage is great for bunnies
because it gives them a lot of options for what they want to do. It has three
levels, so they can pick where they want to snooze, and they can do as much "remodeling"
as they want because the cardboard is safe for them to eat!
Monica says … CatIt Terra Toy Linen
and Rafia Cherries Cat Toy
My cat loves this toy because she can run around and play cat
soccer with it. I like it because it's made with all-natural materials and
Rachelle says … Catnip Bubbles
Um, what's not to love
about catnip bubbles? If you like to see your kitties jumping, playing, and
being super adorable, these do just the trick! And they're fun for you, too.

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.
