The Dedication and Generosity of PETA Members Make Our Work Possible
Vanguard Society members and Augustus Club members like those below serve as the roots of financial support that enable our lifesaving programs to grow stronger.




   Errol Antzis, AUGUSTUS                  CLUB MEMBER
   “I’ve been a PETA member since close to its inception. I believe PETA strikes an excellent balance between dissemination
     of valuable knowledge and promulgating action on behalf of animals. I believe PETA is one of the best in achieving
     results. Being involved in their programs and providing funds to continue their heartfelt work gives me a great sense of
     achievement and accomplishment. I have also planned a bequest to PETA so that they will be able to continue their
     valuable efforts into the future.”

                                      bang for the charitable buck due to its efficiency and the dedication of all its employees, starting with Ingrid Newkirk
                                      and continuing to all levels of office staff. When PETA talks, CEOs and politicians listen!”




   Marie Crandall, VANGUARD                       SOCIETY MEMBER
   “I deeply admire the work of PETA and have worked to support their mission. As an academic trauma surgeon and educator,
    I have written letters and contacted colleagues directly to help decrease the use of animals in medical education, surgical training,
    and research. In addition to advocacy work, I also make yearly donations because I believe PETA has been extraordinarily
    effective at conveying a message of compassion. PETA’s work has helped thousands adopt a healthy, plant-based diet, improved
    understanding, and has engaged people of all generations and backgrounds to help reduce global animal suffering.”
