Making Friends With PETA

PETA campaigns to stop animal testing.
Animal Cruelty

More than 1.8 million people support PETA, making it the largest animal rights organization in the world! Find out more about PETA right here.

Fight for Animal Rights

PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It was founded in 1980 by a couple of animal rights activists named Alex Pacheco and Ingrid Newkirk. PETA believes animals have just as many rights as humans, so they're "not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or use for entertainment." That means no meat, no milk, no fur, no wool, no leather, no zoos, no circuses and no medical research using animals!

Say No to Dissection!

PETA has created a school campaign called Cut Out Dissection, which tries to stop animal dissection in the classroom and replace it with more humane ways of learning about biology, like doing alternative research or using computer programs such as virtual dissection. Since some states have laws that give you the right to refuse to dissect, PETA wants you to speak up and just say no to cutting up cats, pigs, frogs, rabbits, fish, mice and other animals.

Celebrity Supporters

PETA has a ton of celebrity backing to help them fight for their cause! Here's just a few of 'em:

Be a PETA Kids Superstar!

It's okay to brag about bein' a superstar, as long as it's in the name of animal rights! If you or someone you know is steppin' up to protect animals, send an email to PETAKids@peta.org to nominate a superstar of the month!

Did You Know?

  • PETA pelted a flour bomb at Paris Hilton for wearing fur!
  • PETA secretly placed the winning bid for an eBay auction that offered fans a chance to dine with Beyonce Knowles. Over sushi, two PETA members confronted her about wearing fur coats and using fur in her clothing line, House of Dereon.

If friends don't treat you  right  They are not your friends. Say that you do not like what has been happening and let them down easy by saying " Hey, look they way that you guys has been treating me has not been great and I do not mean to hurt your feelings but I don't really want to be friends If this will continue. If you stop doing ( whatever they are doing ) Then we can be friends, I am sorry" They probably wont think you are serious so they might keep doing it so then you say "We cant be friends because you kept doing this so Bye".
