Happy Button Day!

Published by PETA.

You know you love animals—and you want everyone else to know it too. For the millions of us who aren’t “Furries,” there’s no more obvious way to display your love, admiration and respect for animals than to accessorize your bag with buttons or to place a pin on your pleather lapel.

Help us celebrate Button Day by voting for your favorite PETA button—and then help animals by ordering one—or a dozen—today.
