Our colleagues at PETA US have come up with an ad that visualises just what eggs really are: chicken menstruation. It is a thought that makes us cringe, but chicken periods are exactly what you’re eating every time you fry, scramble or bake with eggs. We’ll spare you the full ad, but we’ve included a censored version below. If you are brave enough, visit PETA US’ website to see the full version.

As well as being gross, eggs are cruel. Birds suffer crippling leg injuries from standing … Read more.
Just in time for Easter, Playboy and cover model Sheridyn Fisher is showing her love for rabbits – and “rabbit food” – by wearing only strategically placed lettuce leaves in a new ad for PETA, which encourages everyone to show compassion for bunnies and other animals by embracing vegetarian meals. In the ad, the lettuce bikini–clad Fisher gives herself lettuce leaf “bunny ears” and grins above the words, “Be a Bunny’s Honey. Go Vegetarian.”
“Easter is the perfect time to help bunnies – and pigs, chickens, cows and other animals – simply … Read more.
With Crufts so close, we’ve released a hard-hitting, old-fashioned–style “freak show” ad which activists will hand out to visitors attending the event. The ad shines the spotlight on a fact that the Kennel Club would rather keep quiet: that many of the most popular breeds of dogs have been bred for looks instead of health, welfare and temperament.
A 2008 BBC documentary Pedigree Dogs Exposed, investigated the health and welfare issues facing pedigree dogs and caused the RSPCA to withdraw its support of Crufts and the BBC to cancel its longstanding … Read more.
How would children feel if Spot and Fluffy were stuffed and roasted for Christmas? That’s what we’re asking this holiday season with a new billboard that shows an animal who’s a cross between a dog and a turkey. We decided to run the billboard near Manchester schools in the hope that it will spark a dialogue between kids and their parents.
“Kids love animals, and if they thought about how turkeys feel pain and fear just as dogs and cats do, they’d trade in their drumsticks for a veggie roast in a … Read more.
If, like us, you love The Twilight Saga, you’re already all geared up for the latest serving of vampire mania, Breaking Dawn – Part 1, due to hit cinema screens this weekend.
Despite their characters’ dead hearts, many of the smouldering Twilight stars have a warm heart for animals. The newest member to appear in a PETA ad is hunky werewolf Booboo Stewart (aka “Seth Clearwater“).
Stewart wants you to know that buying an animal from a breeder or pet shop means killing the chances of animals … Read more.
Crouched in a cage wearing a leopard-print bodysuit next to the words “Wild Animals Belong in the Wild. Boycott Zoos”, Bollywood beauty Jiah Khan stars in a brand-new ad for PETA to spread the word that animals suffer in captivity.
“Actors choose to entertain, but animals locked away in zoos are given no choice”, says Jiah. “All strong-willed beings treasure their freedom above all else, and that applies to tigers, elephants, bears, monkeys and other animals too.”
Jiah Khan for PETA
Captive wild animals, including those born in captivity, retain the very … Read more.
A new ad from PETA – in which Spanish-born celebrity Elen Rivas appears nude and “bleeding” from the banderillas stuck in her back next to the words “The Naked Truth: Bullfighting Is Cruel” – has been deemed too racy to run in Traveller, easyJet’s in-flight magazine. We’d hoped to reach British tourists with the message about boycotting bullfighting when they visit Spain, but the magazine’s publishers have ruled that although they sympathise with the cause, they cannot run the artwork because of the graphic nature of the images and the nudity … Read more.
Animals winning at Cannes? Yes, they can. Check out this clever ad campaign from PETA Asia-Pacific and top ad firm McCann Erickson Singapore that just snagged a Silver Award for creative excellence at the Cannes International Festival Outdoor Awards.
The ads offer designer shoes, belts, and handbags at “unbelievable prices.” When curious smart phone users scan over the barcodes on the poster to get more information, the shoppers see Joaquin Phoenix’s exposé of the exotic skins trade or Pamela Anderson’s video about the horrors of the leather industry. The ads were … Read more.
With Crufts starting in just a few short days, we’ve had an illuminated bus shelter ad placed in Birmingham’s city centre, which won’t have dog breeders wagging their tails. The ad shows a small dog cowering under the barrel of a gun and reads, “Boycott Breeders or the Mutt Gets It. Don’t Kill Shelter Dogs’ Chances. Adopt. Never Buy”.
The point of our ad? That when people buy a dog or a cat from a breeder, they rob animals in shelters of the chance at a loving home … and the breeder pockets … Read more.
Chicago electro-rapper Kid Sister is getting rave reviews for her debut album, Ultraviolet. She’s been described as everything from the “saviour of female hip-hop” to the “hip-hop messiah” and is generally considered to be one of the coolest people on the planet. It’s only natural then that not only is she anti-fur, she’s also a big PETA supporter.
Kid Sister posed for this PETA ad because she knows that the fur industry is responsible for the horrific abuse of animals and that refusing to wear fur should be a “no-brainer”.
In addition … Read more.
