“Whether you’re looking for the next great treasure to add to your collection or for a fun and unique way to help animals, PETA’s Antiques and Art for Animals event is for you,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “You may find a new family heirloom while you contribute to PETA’s lifesaving work.”

PETA’s motto is that “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way,” and the new PETA Empathy Center is dedicated to teaching the values of justice, respect, understanding, and compassion for all living beings, regardless of race, religion, ability, gender, or species.
