It’s been said that fashion is a reflection of your attitude and personality – that it can be a representation of your worldview. Wearing cruelty-free clothing is the fashion-forward way to show the world that you’re compassionate towards animals.
Many PETA-approved fashion labels have made the commitment to sell only clothes, shoes and accessories that contain no leather, fur, wool, skins, exotic skins or any other animal-derived fabric. But you don’t have to limit yourself to buying your threads from … Read more.
It’s been reported recently that in some supermarkets, milk is being sold cheaper per litre than bottled water. Yet as prices plummet, compassionate people should remember that, as always, cows are the ones truly feeling the “squeeze” in the dairy industry.
Treated by farmers as machines, cows on dairy farms are pushed beyond their physical limits to produce unnaturally high quantities of milk, often resulting in lameness, exhaustion and a painful udder infection known as mastitis. A cow mother loves her baby just as we humans love ours, yet hers are … Read more.
Animals Australia Reveals Unspeakable Abuse of Cows and Sheep
In an extensive new investigation of the Australian live-export industry – which exports up to 4 million sheep and cattle per year – Animals Australia has revealed countless atrocities to animals who are shipped from Australia to Gaza, Jordan, Kuwait and Malaysia for the annual “festival of sacrifice” in October.
Video footage and photos show how exporters make a killing by supplying animals to notorious meat markets and unregulated abattoirs. Some animals are even set upon and killed in the streets.

They say an image is worth a thousand words, which is why our friends over at PETA Australia came up with a striking Banksy-inspired visual to drive home the fate of animals in the live-export industry:
The photos are kind of cute – that is, until you remember that they represent the thousands of real sheep and cows who are crammed onto ships and endure a terrifying journey that can last for days or even weeks before eventually arriving at their destination: a slaughterhouse in the Middle East where they will be … Read more.
We have some sad news to report: plans to build a massive dairy farm in Wales that would inflict misery on 1,000 cows at a time have just been approved by a government minister.
Back in 2010, farmer Fraser Jones submitted an application to dramatically expand his dairy farm in the village of Welshpool, Powys. The application was vehemently opposed by local residents, groups such as the National Trust for Wales and thousands of PETA supporters, including actor Owain Yeoman. It was rejected by Powys County Council, and after … Read more.
Irish beauty, TV star, former Miss World and daughter of iconic singer Chris de Burgh, Rosanna Davison can now add a new title to her list of accolades – advocate for animals. The long-time vegan has just appealed to Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, to end Ireland’s cruel export of live animals.
Rosanna may be accustomed to the jet-setting lifestyle, but there’s one type of international travel that she’s dead against: transporting frightened cows from Waterford to Tripoli in a gruelling and highly stressful 10-day boat trip to a Libyan abattoir. … Read more.
Actor, producer and mother Emily Deschanel makes no bones about her beliefs – as a committed vegan, she’s totally appalled by the cruelty of the dairy industry. She stars as forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan in hit US crime drama Bones, but in PETA’s brand-new video, it’s the horror of factory farming that she’s investigating.
Watch her behind-the-scenes exposé of how cows raised for milk are treated:
As a mum, Emily explains that she doesn’t want to participate in the suffering of other mothers. The idea of having your child stolen … Read more.
Mums are awesome. But while you’re showing yours how much you love her on Mother’s Day – or, if you’re a mother yourself, enjoying some well-earned appreciation – it’s worth remembering that animals are often parents, too. Just like us, other animals have strong maternal instincts, feel instant love for their children and want to watch them grow up. But in the farming industry, they rarely get the chance: their babies are snatched away from them, never to be seen again.
Here’s a little more info about what it’s like to be … Read more.
On Tuesday, the police and food standards inspectors raided a UK abattoir and meat processing firm to find out if they had been passing meat from horses off as beef – the latest development in the ongoing British horsemeat scandal, which has affected major retailers from Tesco to Burger King.
While the authorities have yet to reach a verdict about these particular facilities, at every slaughterhouse in Britain atrocities go on every day that would turn most people’s stomachs.
From being strung up by their legs and given repeated electric shocks to … Read more.
PETA supporters greeted members of the Powys County Council as they arrived at the town hall in Welshpool to discuss a proposal to expand Leighton Farm into an industrialised dairy farm with 1,000 cows. They were there to tell council members that if they want to keep pollution and the abuse of animals out of Powys, they’ll immediately vote down this proposal.
Dairy factory farms deny cows everything that’s natural and important to them and relegate them to a life of suffering and an early death. The cows are forced to … Read more.
