Love helping animals? Of course you do, or you wouldn’t be here. But do you ever get the feeling you’re too busy to really make a difference in the lives of animals? If you answered “Yes,” you’re not alone. That’s why, this week, we’re giving you the chance to win your very own copy of The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights: Simple Acts of Kindness to Help Animals in Trouble written by the one and only Ingrid Newkirk. This book is loaded with simple things you can do to make a positive difference in an animal’s life—from looking out for dogs in hot cars to using cruelty-free products to hanging a PETA poster in your school. After reading this book, you’ll never think you’re too busy to make a difference again.

For your chance to win The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights: Simple Acts of Kindness to Help Animals in Trouble, tell us one thing you plan on doing to make a difference in the lives of animals in the comment section below.

    I promise to help any animals that I see on the streets and try and find them a home or a rescueing place that will take them in. I live where there are alot of cats and dogs running around, and I feed them and try to take them back to they’re home and talk to the owners about letting them out. I love animals. Im the only vegatarian in my family and I’m trying to get them into not eating meat. My family adores animals but I would like to show more ways of helping out animals. They’re aren’t many people where I live that care for animals. Im tired of seeing animals in the street and no one caring for them! It makes me mad and I need to change that and by me getting this book it would really mean alot to me and help me. Please :]

    I want to read PETA’s Practical Guide to Animal Rights to help me not only learn about how people help animals, but also so that I, myself, can participate in practicing good animal rights. I want to help animals live the lives that they deserve as living creatures, and to help them avoid mistreatments. I’m interested in helping in all ways possible, to help all animals live happy lives. I’ve always considered a job helping animals as a career, and wanted to help rescue animals and put them in a loving family. This is my opportunity, and I don’t want to pass it up.

    i think an act of animal cruelty is when pet owners let their animals walk around in their driveway, there are many people in the are where i live at who they “trust” their animals to stay in the driveway while leaving their gate open, cars drive up and down my street all day and pets have been accidentally hit by cars, yet the same owners and people let their animals out. this isnt right. and i want to find more ways to help this type of situation and many more.
    thanks,

    I will leave a flier or “What They Never Told You” pamphlets on my seat every time I ride the subway. People are so bored on the subway that they end up reading whatever is there (advertisements, posters, leaflets) and hopefully after reading some PETA literature they’ll actually learn something!

    I think that winning wuld b ea great opportunity for me to learn new ways to help animals that truly need our help. I think animals are like people and they have feelings too but they just dont express them as we do. When you hurt an animal Its like hurting a person….. and . animals deserve respect because there have been animals on this planet many many years before humans. All our live, animals have helped us in one wy or another… for example: horses would HELP people by transporting the to he places they need, Dogs have saved many peoples lives, cats give theyre uncondiional love, birds chear up your morning with their marvelous singing, all these animals are phisicaly very different but there is something they all have in common: they give all they have, all theyre love, theyr help, and what do thy want in return…. for people to give them at leats a little bit of love and affection and they are aways willing to forgive you for whatever you have done. I know that alot of people dont think the same way I doand thats why I think this book cuould help me so much by telling me knew ways to tell people how much animals need our help and our friendship, animals are capable of loving just as much as we can (and a lot more too) . Even if I dont win this book this time, I can always buy it but if I win, I could donate that money to a animal rights gorup and do so many other things for my fellow animal friends. The last thing I want o say is that: I LOVE ANIMALS WITH ALL MY HEART AND I KNOW I CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THEM, BUT ONLY WITH YOUR HELP. i hope I win this book. Thankyou ven if I dont win. youl hear from me soon

    I vow to give animals a voice.
    Talking about animal rights may end up changing someone’s mind, which in turn will save animals. My best friend is a vegetarian because of the peta videos I’ve showed her.
    I vow to cut out dissection.
    There’s no way I’m going to dissect the fetal pig that I believe is on the syllabus. I’ll be wearing my “cut class, not frogs” shirt that I just got from the peta catelog on the day of the dissection.
    I vow to do anything in my power to help animals.
    I believe animals’ lives are no less precious than humans’. They can feel pain and fear. I pledge to help them in any way I can, for the rest of my life.

    I promise to take in ANY animal that needs my help, no matter what species, and give them everything they need. No matter what, if stuck in a drainpipe, or trapped in a burning building, if I can help them, I will.

    I will educate and challenge people by making theyre meat philosophy personal, ..therefor driving them to realize the risk, the effect, and the change they can make..by making a one week commitment to enjoying a meat free diet and not just a “side of veggies” like the general is used to.
    :]
    Honestly, its a challenge for both of us.
    It opens the mind to other options.

    I love animals. I think they deserve respect just like people do. I do not eat people and therefore I do not eat animals either. I have been getting very involved in animal rights more recently and I would love a book to help guide me. Right now I am trying to start an animal activist group at my school, so this book would come in handy.
    Peace and love.

    To help animals live unharmed and healthy lives, I vow to visit local animal shelters and volunteer to help out and find homes for the lost and stray pets. I will also get my friends involved and pass out PETA material to my teachers to hang in their rooms and hand them out to students who might not be aware of the cruelty animals go through everyday.

    I made my mom turn vegetarian, it’s been a year and a half. I think that helps, and I try and help the wild animals around here. Many squirrels especially get hurt on the overhead cables and the shelter can’t really help them since they have so many ‘pets’, but they try.

    I promise to keep informing friends and family members to make better choices regarding the health and safety of animals. I have converted 4 people to vegetarianism and am working hard everyday to help everyone see the benefits of being vegetarian and vegan. I also inform them of better choices when buying products so that they buy cruelty free.

    I plan to start a petition for vegan choice lunches at my high school this year. I plan to volunteer a good amount of my spare time at the humane society, when I’m not working. When I have a steady income, I plan to donate monthly to Peta or WWF. Also instead of getting Christmas or birthday presents, I get my family to send the money to the Humane Society. I hand out Peta stickers at my school! :) I gave all my friends lists of cruelty free products that are not only cruelty free but better for you! I got all my teachers to put up Peta signs in their classrooms – “Meats not green!” “I am not a nugget” and wear the stickers! I refuse to dissect in my Health Science class. I introduced the great vegetarian burger to my lunch table! For my birthday on September 8, I am having a vegan barbecue with Yves Hotdogs and burgers! Even their taco meat, and instead of asking for presents, I’ve asked my friends to make a donation to the Humane Society! I advise everyone I know to never purchase animals from pet stores because they are supporting puppy mills! And of course the basics! I promise to never abuse or allow abuse to any living thing! I promise to never purchase fur or suede or leather! I also promise to raise money for the humane society! I promise to never purchase products to which were tested on animals! and I promise to do everything in my power to help innocent animals! And I promise to spread the word!

    To Help animals im going to be somebody.
    im dedicating my life to animals and have since i was old enough to love them.
    I used to eat meat, but when i did it made me feel sick to think about what was happening to the animals before they where killed. After watching jamie oliver, That was it i told myself that i care to much about them, now at home i cook my own meals and as much as it annoys my mum i buy my own food, and now i have stopped wearing animal tested makeup products, and my mum is catching on i told her that when she uses animal tested products she can think about our pets. for the rest of my life i will fight for animals and i will do my best to help others see how i see animal crulty.

    I have a big heart for animals and my heart breaks everytime i see one that is hurt or is in need of help. I cant say how many times I have found homeless dogs or cats just wandering in the neighborhood or in the streets with no one to care for them,no love and as a animal lover and a vegetarian I do my part and take them in,I keep them in my home for a while and if they’re is has been no responce from a owner I take them to my local shelter. I never have nor never will understand how people on this earth can treat animals the way they do,they have no heart or sympathy for these animals,it’s just sick. I hate when im sitting in the car at a store and a dog owner leaves their dog in the car with the windows up,yes the owner may feel it is not my busness but I feel it is by doing both them and they’re pet a favor by not letting it sit their for hours in 90 degree weather and possibly die,they actually sometimes end up thanking me in the end. I promise to continue taking these animals into my home where they will be safe and be shown love and only love,I promise that everytime I see a animal being abused or treated wrong I will do my part and make sure that at the end of the day the animal is in a safe enviroment where it will be taken well cared of and is no longer in posession of the abuser,even if I have to stay up all night,I will do whatever it takes to make sure the animal is in good hands and it’ll stay that way. I have had many pets in the past and have done everything I could to keep them healthy,and let them know that they were loved in my home and would never be treated any different,I treat animals as if I had kids of my own and I am only 17,I promise to take part in my community and do anything I can that will stop animal abuse,even if I am only able to help or save at least one animal,it will only encourage me to continue to save more.

    I’m not going to promise that I’ll find loving homes for 1000 stray dogs by the end of this year (even though that would be amazing), but I’m going to make a more realistic promise. I promise to stand up for those who are weaker than me – animals do not have a choice, however I do. I promise to make my life a compassionate one that does not involve supporting any industry that exploits animals. I promise to help out local animal rights supporters and to educate those who have not yet been enlightened. I promise to do whatever I can, whenever I have the opportunity, to help win the fight for a world where animal cruelty is scarce, if not extinct.

    The main reason I have recently become in animal rights is because I have absolutely loved animals, dogs, squirrels, bunnies, and birds ever since I was a child. I’ve decided to pursue a career in animal behavior and veterinary technology and my main priority is the humane treatment of all animals. I am also actively involved in anti-pit bull fighting awareness, and against specific breed regulation laws. I am a pit bull owner myself, and without her, I would have never known how intelligent and loving animals can be, and also their ability to learn and remember information!

    I promise to not only ti not only do one thing to help animals in need but everything and anything in my power by doing everything from reporting animal abuse and neglect. continuing to be a vegetarian and even becoming a vegan. Continuing to take in roosters in need and destined for slaughter. Continuing to volunteer direly needed hours and funds to my local animal shelter to insure that every animal has a loving family that they so much deserve. I will continue to educate anyone who will listen AND those who would rather live in blindness, so that their ignorance no longer causes animal suffering i will boycott any restaurant and or cooperation who contributes to or supports animal suffering. And in closing I will continue to do my best to help any animal in need of my help no mater the cost or inconvenience to myself by not only participating in the acts mentioned above but also by signing any petition that comes my way concerning animal rights.

    In my never-ending mission to help animals, I vow that I will never eat/drink/use any part of any animal, no matter how small. I will never participate/endorse in anything that causes animals pain or suffering. I will tell others the horrors of animal cruelty and encourage them to help animals just as I do. I promise to speak for animals because they can’t speak for themselves. Instead of buying purebred dogs from a pet store, I’ll go to my local animal shelter and save an animal in need. I promise to do everything in my power to help animals for as long as I live :D

    I promise to keep doing everything I can to place animals in good homes and fostering them.
    I promise to keep watching the road and stopping traffic when needed, no matter what creature is in the way (bugs..are kind of out of luck, though =)
    I promise to keep reaching out to friends, and family about ending cruelty to animals.

    what I would do to help animals is I’ll refuse to buy anything that has anything to do with animals. Also if I see ANY type of animal cruelty, I WILL report it. I’ll protest, I’ll do anything to save animals from being tortured/slaughtered for no reason. It’s inhumane and not Natural, and most importantly, WRONG.

    I promise to share information on animal cruelty in factory farms, and with animal testing. I have already been doing so. I am on a year long exchange in Germany, and i have already gotten my hostfamily to eat fake meat, (and they really like it), and i have already convinced one friend here to be vegetarian. all i had to do was show her two videos. One on fatory farming, and one on animal testing, that was the one that made her choose to become a vegetarian. I have been giving out the german PETA site, PETA.de, to my friends at my Gymnasium, and to my host family. They were not aware that the same stuff was happening in Germany as America with the animals. My host brother said, “oh thats only in America” but he was very surpirsed when i showed him the PETA site in german and realized it in happening here as well. I want to help these animals in need, and help others to realize that the animals need this help.

I promise to give animals all the respect they deserve, and I will help animals in all ways possible…i love helping animal and i promise to do anything to help them because many people dont think about them they just see them as animals and thats all…i also made a club with my friends to stop the animal cruelty i have wrote a letter to the china presedent to stop killing the animals for their fur… also its will be really nice to win and because its my birthday today it would be the best birthday gift…….

    My human nature and my moral senses dictate me to help in any possible way any living creature in need: human or animal.
    This implicates to report any animal or human abuse I know or hear about. Yet also to stop and prevent any type of animal or human abuse from happening
    My heart dictates me to; defend, shelter, protect, care for and keep company any living creature that has suffered from; neglect, abuse, exploitation, psychological or physical trauma.

    I promise to begin a club at my school that focus on animal rights and humanitarianism. I already spoke with my vegetarian teacher who is more than happy to help if I take the steps as a leader to rally fellow classmates to fight for animals. I have great plans for the club and hope for it to continue, even after I graduate. We will focus on more vegetarian options in the cafeteria, better use of solar energy, and why animals deserve far greater treatment then they currently receive. I promise not to remain silent about the horrors in slaughterhouses. I promise to be the voice of reason. Most of all, I promise to never stop trying to show the world what animal cruelty really is, and look towards a future of animal nurture and not torutre!
    Forever Vegan,

    ever since i was in about 1st grade i had always wanted to be vegetarian and would be one for about a week at a time. but it never really stuck until i watched “meet your meat”. now i have been a vegetarian for 7 months! i feel amazing, and healthy. its really the best thing i have ever done for myself.
    soo heres what i have done/doing/plan to do
    past;
    i have put stickers on absolutely everything. ive filled a couple petitions, handed out petitions, and convinced most of my friends to go vegetarian. ive learned that you can convince someone to go vegetarian in three easy steps. step 1: when you see them eating meat calmly ask “how does your flesh taste?” but its really important to keep a straight face. it makes them squirm and feel guilty
    step 2: order then a vegetarian starter kit. but do not tell then it was from you. they will read how easy it is to be meat free.
    step 3: show them peta undercover videos and presto! youve got yourself a brand new vegetarian!
    present;
    i am in mexico right now, in a place called costa azul. yesterday at the hotels restraunt, me and my mom saw a cat whose fur was mangled and looked like he had never eaten before. earlier today we bought a few cans of cat food, one of which he is hapily munching on right now.
    future;
    what really pulls at my heart is all the animals here that dont have homes. i want to raise a ton of money, come down to different parts of mexico, and spay/neuter all the animals i can find. not by myself, though, dont worry! ill hire a vet(:

    i’m a chef who is vegan and have been vegan with my girlfriend for nearly 5 months. We dont consume any animal products. I cook meat at work, and have been turned down for a job for being a vegan chef.
    Being vegan gives people more knowledge when it comes to the animals and how they are treated within the industry and the inhumane slaughtering effecting the overall product that un educated people wish to consume.
    It is inhumane and disgusting.
    My girlfriend and I will be opening a cafe in the next couple of years that will be VEGAN, everything will be recycled. we will use what mother nature has given us to use with respect.
    We also have rescued 2 kittens that were on the brink of death, they are very loved, we also have recently adopted another cat that was found on the street that no 1 has reported lost. We will always endeavour to adopt and help any animal in need.
    My girlfriend participated in the RSPCA bake at home cupcake day and sold them at her uni!! All proceeds going to the poor animals in need.

Most of the wildlife in the coastal redwood rain forest depends on the Klamath Trinity river for substanence inlcluding bears, Sturgeon, and of course, chinook salmon. But with the river not flowing, toxic algee is growing and causing diseases in salmon and the animals that eat them. I hope i can help protect the the wild life so another fish kill like the one in 2005 caused by these 4 damns will not happan again.
    And did i mention how heart breaking it is to watch these salmon repetedly hit their heads on out dated salmon ladders while trying to get up river to spawn?

I also in the near future want to adopt a piglet and raise her and train her to show people how wonderful pigs are and how incredibly smart they are! I want to have school age children have field trips to see her or I could do presentations at schools or for girl/boy scout groups to plant the seed in young minds that pigs and other farm animals are not much different than our beloved pets such as dogs. I have a pig in mind already! Let’s hope I can get her soon!

    One thing that I promise to continue to do to help animals is to help pets who are being given up online, often to the first person who shows up with the money. I frequent the pets section of the Craigslist in my area, and when I see someone who wants to give up their animal and does not mention a screening process, or basically says that the first person to show up gets their pet, I e-mail them and kindly point out reasons why they should screen potential owners. I suggest to them that they meet the person first and make sure that they know how to properly take care of their pet, and to see how they interact with them. I like to think that I have helped in some way, however small, because it may not occur to some people that not everyone is meant to have pets and not every home they go to will be a loving one.
    I have also temporarily taken in a number of small animals, chinchillas in particular, in order to find them homes, and by doing this I know that I will do all the right things to ensure that they go to a good home. I vow to continue to do this with as many animals as I can comfortably have at a time, and for as many years as possible. I have been a lifelong animal lover and helping just one animal to feel joy makes the effort worth it.

    Since I became a vegetarian I haven’t stopped helping animals. I read articles, I learn how to cook delicious vegetarian meals, I constantly share with others the many benefits of being a vegetarian, I am always buying PETA material to be better prepared, I only buy organic products that are cruelty-free, I always make my voice be heard whenever I see wrong being done to animals, I converted my mega-carnivore husband and he is now a vegetarian too and now we go together to animal shelters in our area to help. I will always be grateful from the heart if I win anything (especially since I never have); nevertheless, I will continue my fight against animal cruelty, I will continue buying PETA material that assists me in this cause, and I will continue to do all I can to help animals in any way I can until the day I die.

I catch turtles and small alligators with hooks in their mouth and take them out. I advertise against ringling bros. and other animal cruelty companies with shirts I wear. I save ducklings that can’t get out of a man-made lake by my house by moving them and their mom to a lake where they have a better chance of surviving. My friends and I go to KFC to protest.

    I try everyday to consider all the living creatures that live around me. I never deliberately kill anything even to the smallest insect. My mum taught me a long time ago one very important lesson in life which has stayed with me ever since – everything has a right to live on this earth not just us humans. I dismay of and struggle everyday with the unnecessary cruelty that exists in our world against other human beings and the equally worthy creatures who have every right to live here as well. I despair of all the countless acts of unspeakable horror against mankind and animals, that i and others have to witness on a worldwide scale which makes me unable to sleep at night. I take an active stand on the rights of the helpless and the creatures without a voice and take the abuse for being passionate about this. I do what i can and stand up for what i believe in no matter how humble and insignificant i am. I hope that i somehow make a difference…………..:)

    I am switching from a vegetarian to a vegan and only use truly cruelty free products! I also don’t participate in the animal dissections that my classes require and turn in an extensive lab report instead!

    I will always help animals, even if they are sitting on the street. And also see if there is animal cruelty anywhere I live. I’d like to help out more.

    I promise to go to the Animal Rescue that I volunteer at once a week even more often than I go to make sure that these animals are in tip-top shape. I also plan to write letters to fur farms in New England to tell them what they are doing is wrong and cruel!

    I plan on taking in any stray animals that I find on the road or anywhere, and also reporting the authorities when I discover particular instances involving animal abuse.

    i promise to only use cruelty free items, if i get any for my girlfriend, or friends, or myself. I promise to give animals all the respect they deserve, and I will help animals in ALL ways possible. I already protested infront of KFC once before, it worked out great, and I felt as if I was complete. I promise to do whatever I can to help put a stop to animal cruelty!

    I am in the pre-vet/animal science program at my school. Anytime we have scheduled dissections I always suggest alternatives, such as virtual dissection, and my teacher is planning to do one for the next dissection! In class discussions I am always giving comments to make people think about the most humane way to d things in this field.

    As a committee member on the Vegetarian Student Society at my university, I plan on alerting as many students as possible during freshers’ week events to the suffering that animals still endure to this day, whether they are used for meat production, animal by-products and even wool etc. I’ll hold a stall for our society and try to reach out to as many of the university’s new students as possible… fight for change!!

    I promise to do my best to try to change as many minds as possible. You see I dont think that all people just dont care what happens to animals but I have spoken to people who tell me that they dont care. I think if they seen the videos and the pictures they would see that it really happens and its not just an abstract thing they see on the telly.

    TO help animals more effectively I promise to start using the Socratic method to effectively start a conversation and make people I converse with see that they already believe what I beleive to be true, and do it in a peaceful way so as not to offend anybody but also to clearly get a message across about living a vegan lifestyle!!!
    ( I’ve learned that people need to hear a message 7 times for it to stick, and I promise to keep preaching the message until it sticks!)

    I promise to talk to my school administrators and see if we can get more vegetarian choices in the lunch menu. (every day i eat salad). If I see an animal trapped in a hot car, I will go inside the building and give them a description of the car, and have them come on the loud speaker and have the owner of that car come to the front of the store, where I would ask her to roll down her windows for the animal. And politely ask her to leave her animals at home if it was a hot day and she would be leaving her car. Naturally, I will report every cruel animal act I ever saw, no matter how small. And I would make a big deal out of it until the issue was solved and I could be sure the animal was safe. I have stickers all over my locker, binder, walls in my room, door, cell phone, i have them everywhere..so I know that a lot of people will see them. I even put some of the “animal testing breaks hearts” around my school, some on the bulletin boards, some in the halls, lunchroom, and even a stack of them in the office for students to take. naturally, Im vegetarian and am on my way to being vegan and have influenced many people to do the same! I refuse to buy any products what so ever that arent cruelty free.

    I have been a vegan for about 6 months now, and before that I was a vegetarian for a long while. I love animals! That is why I recently got a new job at a NO KILL animal shelter in Nebraksa called “Hearts united for animals”. http://www.hua.org They speacialize in taking in abused and abandoned dogs, and cats, but will take in any animal if it needs a new and better home.
    Every few months or so we go to puppy mills and rescue the animals that are trapped in these hellish places. We’ve drove all the way to texas before to save these sweet beings. Last month we rescued 107 dogs from the Omaha area. Soon after volenteers from soixe falls, SD came down and took some dogs up there to live do to the fact that we didn’t have enough room for them.
    And tonight when I go to work we are bringing in 37 new dogs. So I get the pleasure of working with helpless animals that are now in a better place.
    We also picket at certain events if they involve animal abuse. Like the local rodeos, and circus. We also have picketed outside of a court house while someone was on trial for killing 23 dogs. She was found guilty.
    I would love to win this book so I can further my knowledge on this subject I very much want to be able to share with others. It’s an awesome feeling knowing that when I’m on my way to work, I’m working to make the lives of the beings worth living. You can’t describe the feeling unless you really experience it yourself.

    If i were to ever see cruelty beign done to animals right in my face i would immediatly take them out of that situation because no one deserves to suffer.
    I will also sign as much petitions as I possibly can to make a difference even if it is a little difference. I won’t just sign petitions I will take action such as protests, handing out leaflets to let the public know when there is cruelty being done.
    I will not let anything bad happen to an animal as long as I’m around.

    Last night, I actually took in a lost/stray dog and now I am in the process of locating his owner. If I don’t find his owner I will not take him to the shelter, I am planning on keeping him…and he can have a forever home with me and my bf. ;) it’s kinda bittersweet. we shall see what the outcome is.

    I promise to always help an animal in need. If I ever see an act of cruelty towards an animal, I vow that I won’t let it go by unnoticed. No animals deserve to be hurt, and no one should just go on their way when an animal is in need.
    Go PETA!

    I’ve been cooking vegan meals for my family/friends and they’ve been cutting meat out of their diet because of their realization that vegan food isn’t “tasteless” :).
    I also make it a point to bring stray wandering animals to shelters.

    I am just a security officer at a local hospital in Oklahoma City. I have seen more dogs trapped inside cars while their guardian goes inside to either visit a sick loved one or to get treatments themselves. I immediately go to the vehicle, obtain their information and locate the owner of the vehicle. We have even had fellow officers take care of the animals by walking, feeding and watering these poor dogs, and in some cases have taken them home. I have reviewed the animal rights laws in Oklahoma. Sadly animals can be left in a vehicle if the temperature isn’t over 85 degrees, the windows are cracked and water is available. 85 degrees inside a car with no air conditioning can become dangerous or fatal. My goal is to research the law more and find out how to make changes to save dogs from arrogant and ignorant owners!

    One thing I will do to make a difference in the lives of animals is to visit them in animal shelters and interact with them. My local animal shelter actually encourages people to come over and play frisbee and other games with the dogs and pet the cats as with all the other animals living there. Daily social interaction is hard to give to each animal and he/she is often bored sitting in a cage and only being let out when there is time. There is often not enough volunteers to provide individual attention to the many animals in the shelter! Doing this one small thing, just playing with them once a week will improve and make a difference in their lives!

    I’ve already done this a few times.
