                                                         About PETA


                                                   Our Mission Statement

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 2 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.

In a landmark move, a North Carolina grand jury has returned indictments for 14 counts of felony cruelty-to-animals against four individuals, including a supervisor, who worked at Professional Laboratory Research Services (PLRS), which was investigated by PETA last fall. This marks the first time in U.S. history that laboratory workers have faced felony cruelty charges for their abuse of animals in a laboratory and only the second time that experimenters have faced criminal prosecution for cruelty (the first stemmed from PETA's first undercover investigation, the groundbreaking 1981 Silver Spring monkeys case).

Mary Ramsey—who had been employed as a PLRS supervisor—and Jessica Detty were each indicted on five counts, while Christine Clement and Tracy Small were each indicted on two counts. The accused are among those caught on video kicking, throwing, and dragging dogs; hoisting rabbits by their ears and puppies by their throats; violently slamming cats into cages; and screaming obscenities at terrified animals. One of those named is the worker seen on video trying to rip out a cat's claws by violently pulling the animal from the fence onto which he or she clung in fear.

The state charges follow extensive citations, by federal officials for serious violations of animal welfare laws, the lab's closure, and the surrender of nearly 200 dogs and more than 50 cats just a week after we released our findings. We'll keep you updated on the criminal case as it progresses.

Stars go naked for PETA:  


Christian is a committed vegetarian and this is actually her second appearance on a PETA poster, but the first time she's gone completely nude.
In fact, in posing au naturel aged just 19, Christian has become the youngest celebrity (others include Jamelia, Alicia Silverstone, Eva Mendes and Pamela Anderson) to bare her body for the anti-fur campaign group.
The new poster has the lovely Christian leaning against a tree in a gloomy, mist-shrouded forest (not unlike a forest in, say, Washington State, where Twilight is set), with the campaign slogan 'Id rather go naked than wear fur' in a not-dissimilar typeface to that used on the Twilight books, posters etc.
There's a splash of (animal, no doubt) blood thrown in, for good measure.

  Alicia Silverston

Alicia Silverston is vegetarian, but you probably knew that already. The beautiful American actress and former fashion model was raised in a traditional Jewish household, but that didn’t keep her from posing in a PETA campaign: “Like most people, I wasn’t always a vegetarian, but I’ve always loved animals. If you ever have a chance to meet a cow, pig, turkey, or goat, you will see that they are just as cute and funny as your dogs and cats and that they, too, want to live and feel love.” We’d like to feel her love. 

 Eva Mendes
Would you go naked rather than wearing fur? Eva Mendes would and wants you to know it, because she’s really serious about animals. “I look at my beautiful dog and think, “Of course I’d never eat him or skin him for his fur, so why would I be okay with eating a cow or wearing a cheetah?” It’s just not right. It’s a contradiction.” she said to PETA.

 Jodie Marsh

English glamour model and television personality, Jodie Marsh, is trying to teach you that all animals have the same parts as humans do. I’d really love to see the fingers or the shoulders of a fish, but there’s a point to her statement. She posed nude last month on a PETA campaign that is trying to convince people to go vegetarian. “Have a heart, go vegetarian.” What about the breast part of a turkey? Can we see that, too? 

 Sophie Monk

Sophie Monk decided to make people “kick their meat habit” and posed for a PETA campaign that promotes vegetarianism. She’s lying on a bed of crimson chilli peppers and tells you to “Spice Up Your Life. Go Vegetarian.” Will you? Will you, please? 

  Pamela Anderson

So as we all know Pamela Anderson is a spokesperson for PETA and she was planning the unveiling of her new ad until it was banned in Montreal. For some reason local city officials did not let her unveil the ad in the original location calling th ad "sexist."


Paul McCartney ,the vegetarian hero: 

McCartney is listed in Guinness World Records as the "most successful musician and composer in popular music history". Paul and Linda McCartney became outspoken vegetarians and animal-rights activists. They said that their vegetarianism was realised when they happened to see lambs in a field as they ate a meal of lamb. McCartney has also credited the 1942 Disney film Bambi-in which the young deer's mother is shot by a hunter-as the original inspiration for him to take an interest in animal rights. In his first interview after Linda's death, he promised to continue working for animal rights. In a December 2008 interview with Prospect Magazine, McCartney mentioned that he tried to convince the Dalai Lama to become a vegetarian. In a letter to the Dalai Lama, McCartney took issue with Buddhism and meat-eating being considered compatible, saying, "Forgive me for pointing this out, but if you eat animals then there is some suffering somewhere along the line." The Dalai Lama replied to McCartney by saying his doctors advised him to eat meat for health reasons. In the interview McCartney said, "I wrote back saying they were wrong."

Joe says: What to say? Sir Paul talks, people actually listen. Few people alive today have the platform and megaphone that McCartney does. And, he has frequently used it to advocate for animals. Is he vegan or veganish? Hard to tell for sure, though his daughter the fashion designer Stella practices a vegan diet. Interesting that his second wife and ex Heather Mills has become quite the vegan activist and entrepreneur in the UK. See Paul, she isn't all that bad. 

 "Going veggie saves animals and people, protects the environment and is one of the healthiest things you can do", says Paul McCartney, who has undertaken to carry on the battle for a more compassionate world. "Linda became the spokesperson on vegetarianism largely because she had the time available. I'd be off making music somewhere but in fact she was speaking for both of us - for all our family. I really worry that good people around the world might think that we've lost a powerful voice. Well, we have but my voice is there now and I'm trying to use it."
The full-colour leaflet carries recipes by Linda McCartney, details of Viva!'s successful campaigns for animals and a fact section, which begins with the uncompromising statement: "The science is now overwhelming - vegetarians suffer less from a whole string of diseases and they live longer. It is an ideal diet for everyone."
