See Who Inspires PETA and PETA Foundation Staffers Every Day

PETA and the PETA Foundation’s offices are always buzzing with energy. The passion and enthusiasm of our employees are rivaled only by the energy of the animals who accompany them to the office! Both PETA and the PETA Foundation are looking for smart, compassionate, hard-working people to join our teams, and you might have just the skills we need. Take a look at the positions we have available, but in the meantime, here’s a peek at our offices from the animals’ point of view!

Sam Simon Center (Norfolk, Virginia)

Marshall, Brandi, and Bubbles came to Norfolk in August of 2010 from the New Orleans area, following the BP oil spill. Pamela Anderson funded their rescue. They have become the beloved feline residents of the Sam Simon Center. Bubbles’ expertise is in intercepting tossed balls of paper, while Brandi proudly carries around a rubber lizard. And although Marshall is missing a leg, that doesn’t stop him from playing “King of the Castle” with the other two on their multistory cat tree.

Oakland, California, Office

You’ve probably heard of PETA by now since it’s the largest animal rights organization in the world, but you might not know about the PETA Foundation. In short, it’s the organization that helps PETA function. Departments like IT, Development, and Interactive Media are all part of the PETA Foundation. PETA and the PETA Foundation are two separate organizations, but we work very closely together, and one couldn’t exist without the other.
