BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

My First Fur-Free Friday

Yes, I have been living under a rock and had never heard of Fur-Free Friday until this year. Luckily, it’s never too late to speak up for animals, so I happily signed up to go to a local protest the day after Thanksgiving with my big bro, Robert. (Did I mention that this was my awesome family’s first Thanksgiving ever without a dead turkey?! Yeah, it was time to celebrate.)

This was my brother’s first PETA protest, and he came out like a champ! We held signs outside a local mall and got a great response from people—lots of honks and waves in support (one from a cute cop, which was my highlight). A young kid and his mom even asked questions from their car at a stoplight, and then they pledged never to buy fur! 😀

Until the day of the protest, Robert hadn’t heard about how animals are kept in cramped, filthy cages on fur farms or how they are sometimes vaginally or anally electrocuted before being skinned alive for their fur. But now that he knows, he’s as anti-fur as I am!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
