If I could give 0 then I would!

I dont even know if it interests anyone but I still would like to tell you how disappointed I am in PETA. they claim that they want to help animals but i guess when a report is not prestige enough to eventually get coverage for people will just be ignored. I reported a case of animal neglect and cruelty twice and both times ended up being IGNORED by the person at PETA after a few initial emails. I asked for help and submitted and entire report with pictures, names, times and other evidence. After I was told it needs more recent information I met up with a neighbor of the family concerned with the abuse to their dog IMMEDIATELY and provided the PETA contact that I had been talking to with all the information.I NEVER RECEIVED A REPLY! THE NEIGHBOR WAS NEVER CALLED! I asked for an update on the case I NEVER RECEIVED AN ANSWER. and this is already the second time this had happened. At least they should have the decency to admit that a case is not important or glamorous enough to deal with it. Shame on them for claiming they want to help all animals and then when someone gives you a lead just ignoring the people that want to help!Extremely unprofessional and disappointing!

I wish I could support them because they are good about some things but think they are too extreme. I can not support an organization that feels that dogs that are forced into dog fighting can not be rehabilitated and should be put to sleep! Even if some cannot be adopted out I cannot agree with putting them to sleep when it’s not their fault they were forced to fight and abused! They are beyond extreme with their causes and I cannot get down with that!

Any company that helps animals is ok in my book. I think some of their advertisements with naked people in them are a bit much but I'm sure that they do not care what I think. I just think they could get their point across in some other way with clothes on....

This is a terrible organization and we do not work or partner with them ever. They are highly unethical and have very dubious business practices. Your money is much better spent at your local animal shelter, the humane society or ASPCA

I’m all for animals rights, but this organization goes way too far to garner people’s support. Their advertising is downright abusive and doesn’t leave a pleasant taste in anyone’s mouth. I don’t agree with their values and wish they would accomplish their goals in a more peaceful way.

Peta tends to get a bad reputation as an organization because of some of their radical acts. I like their core value but not to their extremes. I believe its right to speak up against mistreating animals.

This is such an amazing organization. They make such a difference in peoples lives. I am so glad that Influenster includes charities in their website so people can express how appreciative they are for the people involved. Overall great organization!

I used to really support Peta and even watch their videos when I was a young teen. I even stopped eating meat for awhile and tried to be a Vegetarian yeah not my thing, I love and respect animals, but I don't believe half the crap PETA says is true! I went on their website to look at Cruelty Free products and half of the ones on their I know for a matter of fact are tested on animals so their info is incorrect which is disappointing. I also dont like they they make people who do eat meat feel so crappy, it is extremely for someone who has eaten meat their entire life to just stop or even try to transition. I tried and almost collapsed one day at school because I didnt know what I was doing and that is not really PETA's fault but in a way it is because while watching that video they said how mean it is for someone to consume so they do make you feel terrible. Their campaign should not shame people on their personal choices but just provide facts and credible info instead.

I have mixed feelings about PETA, some positive and some negative which is why I give it 3 stars.
My positive is that it is an amazing cause and a problem that needs to be fixed in regards to animal cruelty, etc.... But the way I have seen them go about promoting the cause is way to negative, there are much better ways to get the point across than throwing fake blood on themselves. The other totally inappropriate action I saw was PETA protesting infront of a circus I was taking my son to (he was maybe 6 or 7) at the time and the protesters were yelling the word "Pedifile" and other harsh words with let alone my child there but lots of children going into the circus!

Did anyone else see the horrific article going around about what PETA did to a families dog? I wont go into details because I don't want to spread rumors but does anyone feel as if it was true??

I herd a lot of bad things about Peta, like it's just a scam or something. Who can back up that they ARE a good company & actually care about animals.
