About Peta

Peta Beliefs

Peta believes animals aren't ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, abuse, or exploit. Most Peta members are vegetarians but you don't have to be a vegetarian to join. They dont eat animals because they are into the welfare of animals. Peta members also dont wear anything that was made from animals that have been abused to get their fur or pelt. They are against experimentation because its not natural for animals to be caged against their will and tested on. Animals aren't actors either they shouldn't be forced to perform silly confusing tricks for our entertainment. PETA is currently protesting NBC's show animal practice

Mission Statement

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.
