I am really impressed with the work PETA does to help animals. They are really on the ground getting things done. They also have an amazing website with so many cruelty free resources.
I use the information from PETA all the time when I am talking with people about the treatment of animals and veganism. I believe the undercover investigations are absolutely essential to the end of factory farming and slaughter. I have met several of the staff over the years and am very impressed with their knowledge and dedication.
I have used Peta's website for years as a resource for all things vegan. It is one of the most comprehensive resources I have found. I recently began volunteering as a mentor and the staff there have been incredibly friendly and supportive.
Compassionate people working for a great cause! Everybody has been welcoming, supportive and helpful in my affiliation with this organization.
I like that they're always willing to provide you with the needed tools, materials to get the desired job done, not like others organizations that I've had problem getting material for a campaign.
Unlike many other animal protection charities, that limit their involvement to some core issues, PETA takes every issue that impacts animals seriously. This is the one organization that responds every, single time. Staff is knowledgeable and serious.
Peta is one of the best organizations out there
Engaged on top of it
Educating the youth
Always in discovery about what is cutting edge way to help animals
I am glad that Peta exists
A needed addition to this miserable world full of gloom
I cannot possibly speak more highly of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). My husband and I have been involved with PETA and its activities from a donor perspective for many years and we are continually impressed and grateful for how PETA is always on the "front lines" for animals. While there are many wonderful animal rights organizations, PETA is the only one we are aware of that responds to such a multitude of diverse needs; from imprisoned orcas to bears held captive in roadside zoos to exploited elephants in India, abused farm animals and so much more, PETA is always there to lead the way in fighting for these animals' rights and freedoms and to light the way in creating massive positive change. PETA is led by the most ethical, passionate, dedicated animal rights activists we can imagine, and we are proud to play a small part in their successes.
PETA has become the number one nonprofit to whom I send monies monthly. They work incessantly to relieve lifelong misery that animals endure. PETA conducts undercover videos and organizes member protests to publicize animal cruelty in all its forms. PETA asks members to e-mail, write letters, make phone calls, and utilize social media to contact businesses and corporations who are responsible for harm to animals. PETA encourages members to contact elected officials about inhumanity shown to living, feeling beings. They educate constantly about animal intelligence, normal animal nature, and the abuse meted out to millions of these sensitive beings. Alternatives are publicized by PETA to the use of millions of animals in labs and that these cruel experiments do not produce relatable results in humans. PETA promotes the use of human simulators for research and even purchases them for various institutions.
In my view, there needs to be something akin to a Nobel Prize given to Ingrid Newkirk, PETA's founder and president, who has dedicated her life to the humane treatment of animals.
PETA does for the animals what no other organization can do!! So grateful for their work. So glad be one of many supporting this group with our resources.
People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals is transparent, honest and communicates with its members and donors equally. If you read their annual report, you will see that over 80 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to help save animals. Co founded by a woman, for over 38 years this organization has a dedicated mission to making this world a better place for all. I highly recommend going to https://www.peta.org/and see for yourself their amazing work. Download the app so you can save animals with just a touch of a button. PETA makes it easy to be kind : )
Peta is always willing to help any animal in need. And they will always help you immediately!
One of their employees jumped into a canal to save a duck that was entangled in netting.
Their volunteers rescued a pigeon that was hanging upside down at the top of a tree, having had his leg caught in the branch.
They told a young schoolgirl to "follow her heart "when she didn't want to dissect a frog. She cried and her teacher gave the frog. The frog was later released in a beautiful country stream where he lived happily ever after! They are the most compassionate people on the planet. And they deserve credit for saving many many lives.
The staff at PETA and founder Ingrid Newkirk are the most courageous people I've ever met. No animal is too small or too large to protect! They are available 24/7 to help the animals and will never let them down or the people who reach out for help. They are strong and determined and work with great professionalism. I've received calls from PETA asking for help in my city, to: rescue a pigeon stuck high in a tree and a mouse stuck in a glue trap. The list goes on. Not only are they strong in the USA but around the world. They've rescued animals who've fallen into deep wells in India, street dogs who've had no one there to protect them. Right now, they are rescuing animals from the floods in Louisiana. Their motto says it all - "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment or abuse in any way." I've never been more proud to support such an exceptional organization. They have my deepest respect and admiration. May they go on forever until not one animal is suffering. Thank you, PETA!!
My problem with PETA involves the local work they do rounding up and euthanizing stray pets. They are responsible for the killing of thousands of dogs and cats either directly in the back of vans or by delivering these pets to local high kill shelters. Most recently there have been stories of these animals being killed and loaded into dumpsters. They also are against TNR for feral cat colonies. They seem to prefer to kill dogs and cats without blinking an eye as if to say it's better to be dead than rehomed or taken to a reputable rescue. They certainly have the money to start their own no kill shelters and low cost spay programs. I acknowledge that they do some good work, but I won't give them another dime of my money!
PETA fieldworkers in Virginia and North Carolina are working hard to abate animal overpopulation, neglect, and homelessness. PETA has spent more than $2 million a year on this 24/7 work and our lifesaving mobile spay/neuter clinics, preventing the births of thousands upon thousands of dogs and cats. Detailed information, with heartbreaking case studies and heartwarming rescue stories, can be found at http://investigations.peta.org/petas-rescue-team/ and http://features.peta.org/petasaves/. It might surprise you to know that PETA's mobile veterinary clinics spayed or neutered more than 570 feral cats last year. Some of the most misleading information spread about PETA is the work of the deceitfully named “Center for Consumer Freedom” (CCF), a front group for animal exploiters; see http://www.ConsumerDeception.com
PETA's persistent, intelligent, courageous work on behalf of animals has been and continues to be of benefit to human animals as well. The awareness raised by their undercover work and collaboration with media and others has helped raise the health of humans, while saving and improving the lives of so many innocent, precious animals.
We learn about the benefits of being vegan, which in turn helps make a more compassionate planet for all.
Five years ago, I was an uninformed animal lover who wanted to help animals in need. I knew of PETA through its campaign ads but didn't know much about its inner workings, or how PETA compared to other animal rights/welfare organizations. I was in graduate school at Stanford University and ended up writing a 100 page thesis titled "Ingrid Newkirk and Her Critics." (Newkirk is the co-founder and President of PETA.) After thorough evaluation, I found PETA to be by far the most effective animal rights group. It has helped persuade more people around the world to treat animals with compassion than any other organization. I know I do the most good for suffering animals when I donate to PETA.
I've been a PETA member for over 25 years. It was thanks to PETA that I went vegan two decades ago, after reading the heartbreaking story of the "downed cow" in a PETA magazine. I have taken more stray cats and dogs than I can count on both hands to PETA's low-cost spay-neuter clinic over the years--it is an invaluable resource to the community that has prevented an incalculable amount of suffering. I have also called PETA's 24-hour emergency hotline several times, a service that no other national animal-protection organization offers, at least not to my knowledge. They will help any animal, large or small--they once helped me with a rat who'd been hit by a car and a pigeon who'd been poisoned. These are animals that very few people care about, but PETA does.
We have been greatly impressed with the commitment and success that the
People at PETA have exhibited over a long period of time. These are clearly people
are dedicated to helping the helpless in our world and we are proud to be
contributing members of this organization.
