With more than 2 million members and supporters, PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world. Every day, PETA works to end animal abuse on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We do this through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
PETA campaigns, demonstrations, and negotiations have led many big retailers, such as Liz Claiborne, Calvin Klein, and Polo Ralph Lauren, to become completely fur-free.
PETA is there for companion animals whenever and wherever they need us. We handle hundreds of cruelty-to-animals cases each month, and we work to fight companion-animal overpopulation through ad campaigns and by providing over 50,000 free and reduced-cost spay and neuter surgeries.
PETA scientists and researches are working around the clock to end horrific government and corporate animal experiments and to develop and certify safer and more effective non-animal methods and resources.
PETA investigations have revealed horrific treatment of animals in circuses, zoos, rodeos, and other forms of animal abuse in the name of entertainment. The fact is, animals do not naturally ride bicycles, stand on their heads, balance on balls, or jump through rings of fire. To force them to perform these confusing and physically uncomfortable tricks, trainers use whips, tight collars, muzzles, electric prods, and sharp metal bullhooks, and the animals are chained or confined to cages for their entire lives. PETA campaigners are constantly educating the public and working to end these cruelties.
PETA conducts undercover investigations of industries that exploit animals and releases footage of workers abusing and neglecting animals. PETA’s factory-farm investigations have not only spread awareness to the public but also helped to pressure cooperate heavyweights, like Burger King and Safeway, to adopt better standards that will reduce the suffering of millions of chickens, pigs, and other animals every year.
Whether we’re winning industry-changing reforms for animals languishing on factory farms, convincing designers and consumers to help stop the bloody fur trade, or fighting to end horrific abuses to animals behind closed laboratory doors, PETA’s work for animals gets results and saves lives.
But we cannot do this work without the support of generous donors like you. Please consider helping the animals today. Animals are still too often the least protected yet the most abused souls in this world. Billions of animals are suffering right now, their cries unheard, lingering in agony and loneliness. There’s still a lot of work to be done, and we can assure you that your compassionate gift will go exactly where it’s supposed to: helping make this world a kinder place for animals around the world.
Thank you from all of us at PETA and on behalf of all the animals for whom we advocate.
