Why does PETA work with celebrities who may not support or practice all the activities that PETA advocates?

By taking a stand against even one form of animal abuse or exploitation—and by helping us educate the public about these issues—our celebrity supporters are making a big difference. By helping us publicize the truth about animal suffering, they are helping to save the lives of countless animals. To deny people the chance to speak out against something they believe in, simply because they may not be “all the way there” on all animal rights issues, would be unfair to them and to the animals.
