Over the years, we’ve appealed to the United Way to do away with cruel fundraisers such as kiss-a-pig contests, puppy raffles, and greased-pig chases, so we are pleased to see that the charity is getting the message.

Remember, you can support our campaigns to get animals out of sports such as horse racing and help all animals suffering around the world by donating to PETA through your workplace giving program. If your company doesn’t participate, ask your human resources department to get on board.
