Let’s be real: Animal abuse is f#cked up. And sadly, there is a LOT of it going on. Sometimes, it can seem impossible to change things, but we’re here to tell you that you CAN make a difference!

Need proof? Dig these awesome ads starring peta2’s 2013 Cutest Vegan Alive contest winners!

Cutest Vegan Alive 2013 contest winner Chloe


Teenage Georgia peach Chloe went vegan after watching “Glass Walls.” She then went on to start an animal rights club at her high school and attend PETA protests against fur and Ringling Bros.

As secretary of her high school class, she persuaded her classmates to move their prom out of an aquarium. It took a little convincing, but Chloe didn’t give up and her fellow classmates had a change of and moved the dance to an animal-friendly location. peta2 thanks you for helping fishies, Chloe!

Fun facts: Chloe is related to a Nobel Peace Prize winner, and her fave foods are lasagne and tofu veggie fajitas. Yum!


My greatest hope is that I will leave the world having made a positive impact.


peta2 cutest vegan alive 2013 contestU.S. Army infantry soldier Alexander first thought twice about eating animals when he heard a line from Finding Nemo: “Fish are friends, not food.” Two weeks later, he was horrified to see a worker kick a chicken at a farm, and his journey to vegan eating began.

Alexander’s come a long way since then—he shares his vegan meals with his “battle buddies” on base, and some of them are even considering going vegetarian!

He creates YouTube videos about cruelty to animals, donates to animal-related causes, and can cook up a storm! Tomato-smothered chickpeas with Tofurky sausage is his specialty. Noms!

Fun fact: This dude s spicy food and can speak Japanese! Hmm, a smart guy who cares about animals and can cook? Swoon!

Peace is my dream.

See, you’re not alone! We can ALL help animals—yes, YOU! Every vegan saves more than 100 animals a year just by not eating them. Chloe and Alexander did it, and so can you!

Feeling inspired yet? Wanna see some more rad kids who are standing up for animals? Check out this year’s Cutest Vegan Alive finalists, then vote for your two faves to help peta2 decide who we should crown as this year’s winners!
