PETA's uncompromising stand on animal rights is what sets us apart and makes us so effective at fighting cruelty to animals. Through undercover investigations, animal rescue, demonstrations, youth outreach, and much more, we speak up for animals and uphold our mission:
PETA exposes the secrets guarded desperately by factory farmers—namely, that if they treated dogs the way they treat farmed animals, they would make Michael Vick look like St. Francis of Assisi.

PETA envisions and works toward a day when only cruelty-free materials are used in the fashion industry instead of skin, wool, and feathers ripped from animals' bodies. Here are some examples of our achievements in the past year:
No one else combines scientific expertise with media savvy, grassroots activism, and mastery of social media as effectively as PETA does to replace the use of animals in laboratories. Here are some examples of our achievements in the past year:

PETA's cruelty caseworkers are on call 24 hours a day to ensure that animal abusers are brought to justice and that their animal victims are rushed to safety.

We are confident that not a day went by in 2013 that a young person somewhere didn't have a life-changing revelation as a result of the work of PETA's Youth Outreach Division, peta2. From giving classroom presentations in elementary and middle schools to helping college students successfully petition for more vegan options on campus, peta2 teaches hundreds of thousands of young people every year how to create a kinder world for animals. Here are some examples of our achievements in the past year:
See some of the many victories that we've won for animals—victories that wouldn't have been possible without our 3 million members and supporters, who have helped PETA's work for animal rights around the world.
