People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 3 million members and supporters.

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds, and other “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

Internship Duties: 

Here at PETA and the PETA Foundation, you know that we do everything bigger, louder, and better, and that applies to our internship program as well. As an intern, you’ll get to work with (not for) staff members to sharpen your skills as an animal rights activist, help raise awareness about animal rights through public outreach and direct animal care, improve yourself with in-office training and seminars, enjoy delicious vegan lunches, and so much more!

One day, you may be on the road with our campaign staff or helping out peta2 at Warped Tour. The next, you may be helping us research the top vegan-friendly college campuses. Whatever their interests, our interns are right in the mix of it all. Talk about exposure—our interns are able to attend daily brainstorming sessions with PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk and Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman as well as several members of senior staff to discuss the news of the day and how we can get animal rights into the conversation. Your idea could be the next big thing!
