Logo for it
On Zoom or popping down to the store? Kenya M. boosts animal rights with a PETA logo tee, lapel pin, or bumper sticker. Gear up at PETA.org/Store.
Be an Animal Rights Influencer
When Emily J. goes to the salon, she makes sure they know why she wants cruelty-free products. Golfer Jim L. posts comments on golfing websites claiming that vegan shoes took two strokes off his game!
People Notice Her Notices
Evelyn W. staples PETA posters to telephone poles and bulletin boards—stock up on activism materials at PETA.org/Literature.
Keep Animals out of Harm’s Way
When Ingrid N. spots birds, raccoons, or other animals eating in the road, she moves their meal to a safer location.
Michelle R. uses her profile pic to convey an animal rights message quick. And when newspapers post breeders’ ads online, she always comments, reminding people to “adopt, don’t shop.”
Instagram ads give Tatiana A. the chance to comment, “Is this vegan?” showing companies that cruelty-free products are in high demand.
When Ethan E. and his family find a treasure while geocaching, they leave PETA leaflets and stickers for the next treasure hunter.
A Tasty Fruit Gives Ants the Boot
A . Rosen evicted uninvited ants by placing some chopped dates on a plate in a corner of her porch. The ants loved their treat and swiftly checked out of her home. She submitted the tip in a letter to her local paper.
A Book Can Help You Make Your Mark
Aimee R. donated Ingrid’s book 250 Vital Things Your Cat Wants You to Know to her kids’ school library—the librarians wanted to read it, too! Chelsea S. asked her public library to order more vegan cookbooks, and they did!
Give Animals Room on Zoom
Elizabeth B. goes to PETA.org/ZoomBackground for free animal-friendly backgrounds.
Calling ‘Cut!’ on Dissection
Yard Sale Jail-Breaker
When Lori K. spies a yard sale, she buys any birdcages, aquariums, or crates that are for sale so no one else can use them to imprison animals.
Clever as a Mouse
Karin B. notes, “Whenever I see a tag on a store shelf where glue traps are supposed to be, they’re never there. Someone must be hiding them so people can’t find and use them.”
YOU Are an Important Piece of the Puzzle
While ordering a puzzle, Kim R. noticed that the company supported Heifer International and two medical charities that experiment on animals. She shared her concerns and PETA’s investigations, and the company stopped supporting all three!
After Kara W. rescued an injured gull in the middle of a busy street, she started to keep a rescue kit in her car. Grab yours at PETA.org/Store.
Putting the ‘E’ in ‘PTA’
When school starts, Imani C. gives her daughter’s new teacher TeachKind’s Share the World curriculum, which makes a great lesson plan for substitutes.
