This review is from: The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights: Simple Acts of Kindness to Help Animals in Trouble (Paperback)
In these difficult times, it's easy to get wrapped up in our own problems, but as PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk points out in The PETA Practical Guide to Animal Rights, it's important to remember that other species are facing their own hardships--which are often much worse than ours--every day.
For example, dogs are called "man's best friend," but many are kept chained in lonely backyards 24 hours a day, with nothing to do but pace the dirt, pant through sweltering summer days, and long for a friend. Elephants and chimpanzees are beaten and chained for humans' "entertainment." Pigs, cows, and chickens are treated like meat, milk, and egg machines--crammed together by the hundreds on filthy factory farms and deprived of everything that makes their life enjoyable, even the feel of grass under their feet or the sun on their backs.
This comprehensive guide to animal rights provides concise, straightforward information about how animals suffer in the entertainment, clothing, food, experimentation, and "pet" industries; compelling stories; fascinating facts about animals; simple steps to take to stop cruelty; and frequently asked questions, which will prepare both new and seasoned activists to be the most effective animal rights advocates they can be.
It's empowering to know that in these times when so much seems beyond our control, each of us can stop animals' suffering through our daily choices, such as eating veggie burgers and buying products that aren't tested on animals. This book will make you want to change the world for animals!

PETA also wants to ban all animal ownership. No pets of any kind, no farm animals, no programs to save endangered species, nothing. When PETA is involved in a "rescue" operation of animals, those animals are put down, not rehomed or given a second chance at life. They are destroyed so they can't be abused again. That makes a lot of sense doesn't it. Look deeper into what PETA wants and it will scare the hell out of you. A world with no interaction with animals. SAD.
