Peter Dinklage asks fans to join him in making kind choices by not hurting animals or asking others to hurt animals for them.
"NY Ink" star and tattoo artist Ami James says that people should "never be silent" for animals in a new ad for PETA.
Animals and the planet depend on us, and actor Maggie Q wants us to know what we can do to help.
Animals are forced to endure the pain of having chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin. Join Dave in buying only cruelty-free products.
Actor Taraji P. Henson wants us to show dogs the unconditional love that they so graciously give us. Make animals a part of your family.

Los Angeles — What do trendy retailer Forever 21, punk band
Anti-Flag, Baltimore Ravens' linebacker and sack king Terrell Suggs, and Taco
Bell have in common? All four—along with scores of other businesses, musicians,
athletes, and others—have gone above and beyond to make the world a better
place for animals and are in the running for a Libby
Award from peta2, PETA's youth division. Now in their seventh
year, the Libby Awards ("Libby" for "liberation," as in
animal liberation) include a record 23 categories, which run the gamut from
Best Vegan-Friendly Restaurant Chain and Most Animal-Friendly Celebrity to Best
Cruelty-Free Hair Product and Best Animal-Friendly Clothing Company.
Forever 21—like others vying for Most Animal-Friendly
Clothing Company—refuses to sell fur. Anti-Flag was featured in a compelling
peta2 poster ad, "Never Be Silent," urging fans to speak out
against injustice, no matter what species the victims are. In the Best
Animal-Friendly Athlete category, Suggs, who gives opposing quarterbacks
nightmares, was so moved by video footage of animals killed for their skin that
he appeared in an ad
for PETA's "Ink, Not Mink" series. And Taco Bell's bean tacos and
burritos, salads, and other meat- and dairy-free options make vegans feel right
"More and more young people are insisting that the food
they eat, the music they listen to, the clothes they wear, and even the sports
figures they root for reflect their strong feelings in favor of animal
rights," says PETA Manager of Youth Marketing Emily Rodriguez. "All
our nominees are winners because they're meeting the demands of kind kids and
helping animals at the same time."
Voting ends on December 17. Winners will be chosen by peta2
based on several factors, including vote count,
and will be announced on December 19. See the contest

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.
