5 Spooktacular Ways to Help Animals This Halloween

Scary costumes and tasty treats will always be a part of Halloween. This year, let’s add activism to the tradition! Check out these five easy ways to help animals and still have a scream of a time:

1. Make a statement with your costume. Dress up as a sinister butcher, a creepy Colonel Sanders, an evil Ronald McDonald, or a declawed kitty cat (and be sure to keep leaflets handy!).

2. Be sure to pass out treats that are vegan and include PETA Kids’ stickers.
