Fight for Their Rights

Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation or entertainment.

As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. Regardless of your level of activist experience, PETA India can help you make a difference for animals. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter. We are here to help you every step of the way!

Some activists focus on one issue, while others speak out on several different topics. The choice is yours. The important thing is that you do something, not assume that someone else will take care of it. Step in and speak up!

Featured Frequently Asked Question

What rights should animals have?

Animals have the right to equal consideration of their interests. For instance, a dog most certainly has an interest in not having pain inflicted on him or her unnecessarily. We therefore are obliged to take that interest into consideration and respect that right.

However, animals don't always have the same rights as humans because their interests are not always the same as ours and because some rights would be irrelevant to animals' lives. For instance, a dog doesn't have an interest in voting and therefore doesn't have the right to vote, since that right would be as meaningless to a dog as it is to a child.
