Twenty years ago, PETA India was founded on the simple principle that animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way. Our staff, members, and supporters are dedicated to improving life for animals who bear the brunt of human greed and gain. Weve been busy, and the tide is turningSociety is recognising crucial issues such as the way killing animals is killing the planet and that animals are intelligent, sensitive beings who deserve our respect. Here are just some of PETA Indias victories from the last 20 years to prove it: 

Animals Aren't Ours to Experiment On

Animals Aren't Ours to Eat

  • We promoted healthy, animal-, and eco-friendly vegan food by sharing recipes, erecting billboards, offering free vegetarian/vegan starter kits, and distributing samples at demonstrations, festivals, and other events.
  • We conducted groundbreaking investigations of the meat, egg, and dairy industries – including at Mumbai’s Deonar slaughterhouse – revealing systemic abuse, unhygienic and inhumane conditions, and apparent violations of animal protection laws.
  • We created the first-ever landmark video exposé of the Indian meat, egg, and dairy industries, “Glass Walls“, narrated by R Madhavan.
  • We were part of a Supreme Court case against the common illegal treatment of animals during transport and slaughter. In addition to ordering a crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses, the court called on states to set up enforcement committees to monitor the treatment of animals used for meat and leather.
  • We launched nationwide campaigns raising awareness of the fact that animal agriculture causes climate change.
  • We rescued seven camels from execution for Eid al-Adha with help from government officials and local activists.
  • We urged Kullu officials to refuse to grant permission for animal sacrifices.
  • We worked with Shillong police and locals to rescue dogs from slaughter.
