The History of Peta

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) was founded




Following a year of vigorous campaigning, NASA cancels plans for a $1.75 million study in which dozens of squirrel monkeys would have been exposed to a harmful dose of radiation.

PETA conducts an undercover investigation exposing the suffering of the Silver Spring monkeys in a Maryland research facility, resulting in the first-ever police raid on a laboratory.

All car-crash tests on animals stop worldwide following PETA’s hard-hitting campaign against General Motors’ use of live pigs and ferrets in crash tests.


After 35 years of PETA protests against cruelty to elephants in circuses, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced that in response to growing public concern over “how the animals are treated,” it will end elephant performances by 2018. PETA also caught Ringling’s abuse on video and released to the world a former Ringling trainer’s photos of the circus’s violent baby-elephant training.
