Our Mission:

We believe that it’s wrong to hurt animals. They aren’t dinner or clothing or anything else for us to use—they’re individuals who can feel pain and suffer, just like us. YOU hold the power to make a huge difference for them, and we’re here to help you every step of the way. Free for all!

What’s peta2? We are an animal rights group that takes on anyone who abuses animals. From schools that don’t allow the choice not to dissect to fashion designers who won’t drop fur to fast-food giants that refuse to treat their animals right—if cruelty to animals is taking place, you can bet peta2 will be on it.

And not to brag, but we are the largest youth animal rights group in the world—maybe even the universe.* How did we get so big? Here’s a lil’ back-story:

It all started back in the summer of 2002, when PETA was looking to expand its animal rights family. Lo and behold, peta2 was born! On Warped Tour, the bands loved and nurtured peta2 like it was their very own. Soon enough, peta2 was ready to step out into the rest of the world (the World Wide Web, that is) with peta2.com.

Before you could say, “I Am Not a Nugget,” peta2 was at every major music festival, interviewing everyone from Rise Against to Fall Out Boy and winning campaign after campaign for animals. So that brings us right up to the present day, where we’re still fighting the good fight for animals. Here are the top five ways that we do just that:

  1. Advice: We make cruelty-free living super-easy by offering advice from your favorite bands, a helpful community on our message boards, and our guides to show you exactly what to eatwhat to wear, and even what to put on your face!
  2. Street Team: The Street Team is the place to go for campaign updates and any tips that you need on being a better animal rights activist. You can request free stickers and leaflets, and the best part is that you can even get free stuff for keeping us updated on all that you’re doing for animals!
  3. Videos: Whether it’s an undercover investigation or interviews with Silversteinhellogoodbye, or Steve-O, our videos help spread the word about animal rights.
  4. Contests: Want tickets to Warped Tour? We got them. Want peta2’s latest T-shirt? We got that, too.
  5. Free stuff: From free stickers to free DVDs, peta2 will send you whatever you need to get active for animals. For FREE!

Well, that’s about it—peta2 in a nutshell. So check out the rest of the site, join us on Facebook and Twitter, and start helping animals!

P.S. If you have any questions about peta2, all you have to do is ask!
