Attention, jobseekers: As unemployment in the U.S. rises to levels close to those of the Great Depression, we want you to know that there is plenty of work to be done to stop cruelty to animals and end speciesism, and we encourage you to apply.

You don’t have to wear a lettuce bikini or use a bullhorn to work for PETA—although we certainly wouldn’t stop you from doing those things. At PETA, investigating “wet markets,” sending members of Congress custom toilet paper to urge them to help wipe out animal experiments, shooting an anti-speciesism ad with a Hollywood star, and getting tigers out of roadside zoos such as the one run by “Joe Exotic” are all in a day’s work.

PETA rescued Mo (shown here) and 38 other tigers, three bears, two baboons, and two chimpanzees from Tiger King villain Joe Exotic’s compound. All 46 animals are now thriving at reputable sanctuaries.

We’re looking for kind, smart, committed people to fill a wide variety of positions at the Sam Simon Center, our headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia; at the Bob Barker Building, our Los Angeles office; or via telecommuting.

Save Animals Like It's Your Job

We’re seeking attorneys to join Corporate Counsel magazine’s Best Legal Department of 2017—the team that forced SeaWorld’s hand to end orca breeding, scored the first-ever convictions for “crush” videos, and has rescued countless animals from abusive exhibitors.

PETA is hiring investigators to conduct the kind of exposés that led to the decimation of the angora industry, the end of circuses, and the closure of animal testing facilities such as Professional Laboratory and Research Services (along with the surrender of its 250 dogs and cats).

We also need fieldworkers to help improve conditions for chained dogs by delivering free, sturdy doghouses and food to them as well as transporting them to our low- to no-cost mobile veterinary clinics or to an adoption facility.

Our fieldworkers aren’t letting COVID-19 stop them from helping animals—so they’re taking every precaution recommended by health authorities while giving animals the attention and care they desperately need.

In Los Angeles, we’re also hiring an operations assistant, a social media coordinator, and a content producer. At our Norfolk headquarters, we plan to hire an accounting specialist, a veterinarian, and an evidence analyst. Interested in working remotely? We’re in search of a horseracing specialist, a press coordinator, and others. Click on the link below for the complete list of open opportunities:
