Every week, PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department receives hundreds of calls and e-mails (nearly 4,000 this year so far!) nationwide from people who are desperate for help with an animal emergency. From backyard dogs to injured wildlife, PETA never turns its back on an animal in need, and our cruelty caseworkers and emergency response team work around the clock (sometimes literally!) to help the animals who need it the most.
Check out just a few of the animals PETA helped in the last week alone:
Passion (Enfield, North Carolina)
Coco (Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina)
Seal Pups (Huntington Beach, California)
Olivia (Norfolk, Virginia)
Stray Puppy (Los Angeles, California)
Coco (Union City, New Jersey)
Although these kinds of stories rarely make headlines, PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department helps thousands of animals like these every single year.
If you know of an animal in an emergency situation—injured, ill, abused, stray, etc.—speak up! Your help could mean the difference between life and death for an animal in need. Please take the time to learn:
