Tired of giving your family and friends
neckties, candles, and pairs of gloves every year? Most of us already have
overstuffed closets, and really, how much cinnamon aroma can one take? This
year, think outside the tie box and give a PETA Present.
Make your friends and family all warm
inside by letting them "deliver" comfort to a cold, lonely "outdoor dog" this winter,
help save a rabbit from losing
his or her fur for a collar, or help get an animal released
from a laboratory. Or make personalized gifts—just
choose the campaign that you are most passionate about and specify what you
would like your donation to be used for.
Your gift recipients will receive an
e-card on the date that you choose to let them know that they have helped an
animal in need, and if you need to make use of all those tie boxes, you can
print out the description of the gift to put under the tree.
It's the season for
tidings of comfort and joy—and we can help make it a little bit more
comfortable and joyous for animals, too. Thank you!

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
