PETA is the only animal rights organization that is ending the use of animals in laboratories. Other organizations that I have donated to int he past that want to end animal research are simply uneffective, and unable to find creative ways to stop this form of animal abuse. PETA puts undercover investigators into these horrendous labs and is able to prosecute and sometimes, like last year, were able to close one down entirely. If ending the use of animals in testing and research matters to you, then PETA is the organization that DESERVES your hard-earned dollars.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

showing what goes on inside a laboratory these days is very difficult due to the high security but PETA does it and brilliantly educated the rest of us as to the horrors that take place and why animal research must end.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Spend less effort on companion animal issues that so many other animal organizations exclusively focus on and do more of what PETA does best: end animal research, continue the focus of circus cruelty, and end animal intensive farming.

Try to think of any other animal rights group that is as effective as PETA. Personally, I can't. And they walk the talk and target your donations to actual work on the ground - their president earned just $37,000 in 2009 (see Form 909). Just to compare I picked another random animal welfare group IFAW and their CEO earned over $300,000 and from what I have seen this is common.

PETA gets results, period. That's why I have been donating to them for the last 16 years and will keep on giving them as much money as I can afford. I would wish for personal wealth solely to give it to PETA. I am continually impressed by the inventive strategies they deploy to effect change for animal welfare, like becoming stockholders in soulless corporations and gaining entry into their meetings. I have also had the privilege of meeting a number of PETA staff and to a person they are obviously deeply dedicated to their brave calling. They are heroes in my book. This is urgent work and there is no point to playing nice with animal abusers.

PETA has a strong record of "firsts," including getting the first-ever conviction of a vivisector in the US, the first confiscation of abused animals from a lab, and the first US Supreme Court for animals used in experiments. I live on the West Coast and am thrilled to witness the opening of a new LA home, thanks to Bob Barker's extraordinary $2M gift. Partnering with media celebrities is a very effective way of getting attention and raising awareness.

Generously endow their administrative expenses so they can push their work ever farther throughout the world, with competitive salaries and benefits for all staff.

Peta truly changed my life and I will always be in debt to them. I had always been an animal lover with lots of empathy and when i was twelve i found one of their meet your meat videos online and from that moment on i was vegetarian and a peta activist (well, as much as you could be at 12 ). i always participated in animal rights debates in school etc and would proudly put my littel peta stickers everywhere and talk to evefyone about what happens to cows chickens pigs etc. I am now 20 and vegan and even more the acitivist i was then. I owe it all to PETA. They are by far more accessible than any other animal rights organization- they have an amazing talent in the way they reach out to all generations, young and old - they have cutesy slogans and campaigns that bring attention to serious issues, and then they also have those fucking great in your face, attention-demanding tactics that dont let people escape the current animal issues that have become out reality even in 2010..I got the great opportunity to go on a peta campaign tour a few weeks ago, but had to cancel due to an acting job. Everyone i talked with wereextremely warm and gracious and i was so honored to even get the chance to travel with them. PETA is by far my favorite organization, their victiories are tremendous and theyce certainly made me a better person.

PETA has been incredible to work with and I constantly feel honored to be giving to such an important cause. They always keep me in the loop on the groundbreaking victories for animals, which makes me feel like my money is being spent directly to further the cause, and are helping me organize protests and demonstrations in my area. Sometimes animal cruelty just feels like such an overwhelming issue, but the staff at PETA have always been there to help me take one step at a time to make this a more cruelty-free world and I'm so grateful for their help. The demonstrations/protests I've attended that PETA has organized have always been so professional and empowering. Overall, I am so proud to be a PETA member!!!

I give money specifically to the organizations' investigations fund, and I'm kept in the loop on their incredible investigations and huge victories as an outcome, which makes me feel like I have a direct part in saving animals.

Ingrid Newkirk barely takes enough salary to survive living in Washington. My sister volunteered for them and reported that the staff work very hard towards preventing cruelty to animals. This is where I put most of my money.
