PETA Videos: Animal Rights Television?
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but videos this powerful can leave you speechless and ready to take action. Every day, we hear from people telling us that a PETA video inspired them go vegan or make other kind choices. Check out some of the animal-friendly videos that have been seen billions of times—they just might change your life.
Whether exposing the highly secretive ostrich-slaughter industry, animals' suffering at pet store dealers, dogs bludgeoned and killed for leather, bears beaten to perform tricks for the circus, or psychologically distressed baby monkeys, PETA never backs down when an animal needs help. Our investigative videos have been viewed millions of times and have resulted in victories for animals everywhere.
Celebs ? PETA
Beginning in 1989 with the iconic rock band?The Go-Go's, PETA changed the face of celebrity activism. Using celebrity influence was nothing new, but having famous people literally expose themselves in the most vulnerable way created a campaign that was hard for both the media and the public to ignore. From our "Rather Go Naked" to "Ink, Not Mink" campaigns and from the sexy to the sweet, celebs everywhere use their voices and their bodies to help animals, and these videos show it all.
PETA has helped rescue countless animals, large and small, from horrid conditions. In recent years, more than 55 bears living in squalor at roadside zoos and seven formerly solitary chimpanzees were given a chance to lead a happy life in a reputable sanctuary. We've rescued hundreds of neglected dogs, cats, and other companion animals and are on the scene when natural disasters hit, helping reunite animals with their families. Watch these videos with a box of tissues nearby.
If there's one thing PETA is no stranger to, it's spreading a cruelty-free message with sex appeal. Some ads deemed too racy for public consumption get banned, but lucky for you, we've got them right here. You might want to watch some of these on the sly. ;)
Sometimes practical, sometimes over-the-top, PETA's recipe videos are the perfect resource when you can't decide what to make for dinner or just want to prove that there's a way to make anything vegan. An easy mac 'n' "cheese" recipe? Got it. How about a meat-free corn dog wrapped in French fries? Yup, we've got that, too.
“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
