What was the best thing about 2011? It was a banner
year for animals in India! Yes, with your support we won many victories. Here's
a quick recap:
After years of
extensive campaigning, we were able save millions of animals from being
tortured each year in the name of science. All India Institute of Medical
agreed to retire to sanctuaries many of the monkeys who were kept in tiny,
cramped cages for many years and made significant improvements in the care of
other animals at its central animal facility in New Delhi. In a groundbreaking
decision, with your help and the pushing of progressive scientists, the
University Grants Commission called for an end to animal dissection and animal
experimentation for university and college zoology and life-sciences courses
The year also brought relief for bulls who
are kicked, punched, jumped on, dragged to the ground and otherwise tormented
in the bloody "sport" of jallikattu. PETA’s
efforts, your letters, e-mails and phone calls, in addition to Hema
Malini's appeal, and the work of other caring groups together led to one
of the biggest victories for bulls in India when the Ministry of Environment
and Forests banned the use of bulls as performing animals. This law also makes
any of kind of bull racing illegal now in India!
Our young animal rights brigade, PETA Youth, tabled at hundreds of colleges, gathering the support of countless passionate students
from all across India and turning them into animal rights activists.
We made headlines in the media for our eye-catching demonstrations,
and innovative methods of animal rights activism.
There are far too many victories, both large and
small, to list them all here, but there is one thing that remains constant through
all our accomplishments: your support. Support our fight for animal rights by making a donation

We hope 2012 will be even better for animals!
