A fantastic animal right's organisation, encouraging people to become vegetarian or vegan, improving the quality of their lives and saving animals lives.
They don't support violence, and the people who poured paint on fur wearers were extremist members who PETA looked down on.
They are not against pets, they are against breeders, as for every pet you buy from a breeder, one in a pound must die.
PETA claims to have never killed animals, unless for the shelters, as it is not possible or ethical to keep a vast majority of pets in an adoption shelter for long.
PETA rocks, always has and always will.
It is currently the largest animal rights organisation in the world, so it must be doing something right.
PETA, saving animals and exposing cruelty to them since 1980.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Maybe they DO care more about animals than humans. But its only because humans have the voice, and power to defend themselves, animals are completely defenseless. If you disagree with their intentions, you're supporting animal abuse.
Meat is EXTREMELY unhealthy for you. Causing all kinds of fatal diseases. Cancer, E. Coli & Osteoporosis just to name a few. Eat meat if you want, but don't abuse a defenseless animal. Peta is ridiculous, yet well intentioned. But that doesnt make it ok.

an organization created by people who love animals enough to stand up for them. peta2 is a website and you can go there to research more. peta helps people to become vegetarians and learn more about the cruelty of animals, and how they should be treated better because like us animals CAN feel.

Something people like to bash on urbandictionary because they don't have the willpower nor the mercy to become vegan/vegetarian.
Joe was fat and loved fried chicken. He didn't have the willpower to stop eatin fried chicken so to make himself feel better instead of joining PETA he wrote a mean definition about PETA on urbandictionary. Now he feels better about eating fried chicken and he will continue to eat it until he dies in a few days from heart disease.

A group of people who, though sometimes wrong and extreme, will be the ones laughing when they're 100 years old and most others, mainly meat-eaters, have died of obesity, heart attacks and strokes.
(80 years from now)

Vegan 1: Hey, remember that smartass who said that, just to teach us a lesson, he was going to eat 3 animals for every animal we refused to?

Vegan 2: Oh, you mean Meaty McCarnivore? Yeah...he died the same day.

Vegan 1: Excellent!

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

A warm-hearted and caring animal rights organization.
Very misunderstood, they beleive in total animal liberation, PETA beleives that animals should have rights just as humans, and that using animal flesh or products for food or any other use is immoral and cruel. In an ideal world pets would still exist, but they would be seen as our companions as opposed to our property.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

A pissed-off animal rights group that is sick of the needless death and suffering of animals and those who are indifferent to it. Because of their passion and extreme methods, they have been labeled as terrorists, attention whores, and losers.

They're not my ideal animal rights group (and no, I don't give a shit whether you believe me or not) and their methods can be ridiculous at times, but at least they're passionate about their cause.
PETA and Ingrid Newkirk are upset about the Kentucky Derby and current affairs with horse racing.
