Looking to do more for animals?

Volunteering in your community is a great way to spread the word about animal rights. Volunteer at your local animal shelter—most of them welcome volunteers who can help walk dogs, clean cages, and dole out love and attention to needy animals. Walk your neighbor’s dog—all dogs deserve to have exercise and attention, so be a friend to a lonely neighborhood canine.

Cook vegan meals for a local soup kitchen or for someone you know who is stuck at home. Help build doghouses for chained “backyard dogs” in your community, and include dry straw for bedding.

Hold a weekly (socially distant) volunteer party to write letters, or make banners or signs for a demonstration. And show animal rights videos every chance you get. Or stand on a busy street corner (while wearing a PETA face mask) and hand out free PETA literature to passersby. We’ll send you everything that you need and give you tons of great tips and talking points.

You can even make a difference in five minutes or less! For example, give your hairdresser a list of hair-care products from companies that don’t test on animals, or order animal rights books to donate to your local library.
