The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have interests in leading their own lives; therefore, they are not ours to use – for food, clothing, experimentation, entertainment or any other reason. PETA and our affiliates around the world educate policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect.

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?
• Animals Are Not Ours to Eat
• Animals Are Not Ours to Wear
• Animals Are Not Ours to Experiment On
• Animals Are Not Ours to Use for Entertainment
• Animals Are Not Ours to Abuse in Any Way

PETA works through public education, research, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement and protest campaigns. PETA believes in non-violence and does not advocate or support actions in which anyone, human or non-human, is harmed. PETA is a charitable organisation that works to educate the public about the horrors of cruelty to animals through peaceful means.

Depending on context, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation may be referred to as the “PETA Foundation”, “PETA UK”, or “PETA.” References to any campaign activities that occurred prior to October 2009 refer to activities undertaken by PETA Europe.

Q Which payment types do you accept?

We accept PayPal, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners Club JCB, Maestro, Visa and Visa debit, and Direct Debit payments.

Q Can I make a donation in honour or in memory of someone?

Yes, we gratefully accept donations of any amount made in honour or in memory of a special human being or a beloved animal.

Should you wish to make a gift in memory of a departed friend, family member, or animal companion, our True Friends Memorials programme will honour and preserve the memory of the special animals who were your true friends as well as of those individuals who were true friends to animals.

Memorial donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. We will, at your request, also send a notification of the memorial gift to a family member or other individual designated by you.

PETA US also provides the opportunity to create a free online memorial page via its True Friends Memorials site.

Q Does PETA accept stock donations?

Yes, donating stock is an easy, wonderful way to help fund PETA’s programmes to end animal suffering. For more information on the benefits of donating stock, please contact us.

Q How much of my money will go directly towards helping animals as opposed to going towards administrative and other non-programme costs?

PETA ranks very high among non-profits when it comes to the efficient use of funds. We undergo an independent financial audit each year. In fiscal year 2019, more than 80% of our funding went directly to programmes to help animals.

Q Why does PETA encourage people to donate fur garments?

By getting fur out of people’s wardrobes, we also help get it off the streets and provide a way for former fur-wearers who have had a change of heart to turn something negative into something positive. We use the furs that are donated to us to create informative displays and demonstrations to spread the word that millions of fur-bearing animals are cruelly killed every year to produce fur garments.

To donate a fur garment, please post it to our office at the following address:

Attn: Fur Campaign Department
PETA Foundation
PO Box 70315

If you know what type of fur it is, please enclose a note specifying this when you send your donation.

Q How can I get more involved with PETA’s work?

If you’re interested in becoming more active in animal rights and helping us with our vital work, you can join our Action Team mailing list and we’ll keep you up to date on our campaigns and other issues. One of the most effective ways to support our work is by making a donation.
