: people for the ethical treatment of animals.
PETA was founded by Ingrid Newkirk and Alex Pacheco. Peta's first case was the Silver Spring Monkey Case in 1981. It resulted in the first arrest and criminal conviction of an animal experimenter in the U.S. Every year, with the help of people's donations, PETA is able to secure victories for animals.
Every day in countries around the world, animals are suffering and fighting for their lives. They are mutilated and confined to tiny cages so that we can kill them and eat them.
They are burned, blinded, poisoned, and cut up alive in the name of “science”.
A way to help is to donate or pledge to go vegan on their website. www.peta.org
