Horrible people doing horrible things. Animal rights is one thing, but when you go near borderline terrorist to get things done, then you are no better than the organization that attacked the twin towers.
Peta, i could take it when you attacked the Tanooki suit. but when i eard that you were attacking pokemon, i flipped. i used to think you helped animals. but no. no you do not. you sit around attacking video games, painfully putting down animals, and asking towns to change there names for thanksgiving as to "not offend the turkeys" i used to respect you Peta, and now, every child who owns a pokemon game, and let's not exclude adults, shall we? looks like you have a lot of angry people on your hands Peta. ~Super8Jack1, Pokemon Player and Let's Player P.S. i have NEVER volunteered at Peta in my life.
I have been volunteering with PETA now for 9 years. They do some AMAZING work on behalf of animals and truely make this world a better place. I love and appreciate how much PETA will go out on a limb to advocate issues that other non-profits won't even touch. As an organization, they have some amazing people who work with them and I am honored to be their friends. PETA changed my own life, by first educating me on how to adopt a better diet, and as an activist and a person, PETA has taught me how to stand up for what I believe in and how to also help make the world a better place, for the animals, all of us. I plan on volunteering with them for a long time. Even 9 years after adopting a vegan lifestyle and becoming a volunteer with them advocating about the rights of animals, I STILL learn something new and awesome everytime I read something from their blog, hear about a new campaign they are working hard on, etc. I couldn't imagine life without the team at PETA who every day, strive to make the world a better place.
This is honestly one of the greates organizations to bring awareness to animal rights. In the last two year I have learned more about animal rights then I have with any other organization. They have helped me become vegan, an animal rights activist and educated in everything that is animal rights. I love this organization and all the work they do for animals and I suggest everyone to do the same. Please, keep up the good work and keep saving lives.

PETA have made many people aware of cruelty to animals that does not always get publicity and that people are not aware of. Circus animals, which should be banned anyway, zoo animals and the poor hidden animal victims of the cosmetic industry. They give you the facts, pictures and stories and you can make up your own mind. Nothing they ask of you is unreasonable, all at your own pace and at what you can afford. Please support them in supporting the animals that need help so much.
PETA does what others won't. They put aniamls first. If you want your money to do to helping animals then you want to donate to PETA. Just looked at what the PETA head makes. She only makes 37K. I've left PETA in my will.

PETA is both an incredible and vital organization that I’ am truly grateful for becoming a part of. Not only are they one of the most resourceful animal rights organizations out there but does an excellent job of educating the general public on how to make more conscious decisions and bringing awareness about the harm being done to animals! They go above and beyond from research to undercover investigations, THANK YOU PETA!
I first learned of PETA when I was around 8 years old and went vegetarian. At that time, PETA was really the only good resource out there. With PETA resources at my fingertips as I grew up, I have been able to grow into a full-fledged animal advocate involved in everything from leafleting to letter writing to protesting to fundraising and more! I am grateful to PETA for being the loudest voice out there for animals, and am proud to call myself a supporter.
I have been volunteering for PETA for over two years. They are a great organization, and I have loved every minute. My favorite events have been the Ringling Brother's protests and participating in the Pride Parade. The monthly meetings on the 3rd Sunday in the Oakland office are always informative and fun...and a great chance to taste new vegan treats! Go PETA!
Love them or hate them, they save animals & that is what is important. Every organization and person has different methods & we are not always going to agree with them.
