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.
Who is peta2?
peta2 is an animal rights group that motivates young people to use their voices for animals. We give people the resources to cut out dissection at their schools and to spread the word about fashion designers who haven't heard that fur is dead. We also stand up to fast-food giants that scald birds to death. If cruelty to animals is taking place, you can bet that peta2 will be there trying to stop it. And the tour crew is hard at work, reaching out at schools and at concerts and other events.
