What do Jack Daniel’s, IBM, Gucci, and Forever 21 have in common? PETA’s top news for July

Published by Zachary Toliver.

When PETA wins for animals, we win hard. In July, Jack Daniel’s finally dropped its sponsorship of the deadly Iditarod race following PETA protests outside its offices and over 186,000 e-mails sent by our supporters. PetSmart managers pleaded guilty to cruelty-to-animals charges following a scathing PETA exposé, and we even persuaded the globally renowned luxury brand Gucci to ban angora wool.

Those victories—made possible because of supporters like you—were huge. Can you believe that they’re just a taste of everything that we accomplished last month? Check out more of our top victories for animals in July:
