People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation (PETA UK) is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals.

Like humans, animals are capable of and want to avoid suffering as well as to be free and lead their own lives; therefore, they are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, entertainment, or any other reason.

PETA UK is a leading force for animal protection, with over 1.3 million members and supporters around the world. It aims to inform policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect.

The group works through public education, research, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns. It believes in non-violence and does not advocate or support actions in which anyone, human or non-human, is harmed.

As a member of the PETA International Science Consortium Ltd., PETA UK promotes reliable and relevant regulatory testing approaches that protect human health and the environment while eliminating the use of animals. It works with industry, academics, and regulatory bodies to promote and fund non-animal research methods and regularly submits detailed scientific and policy-driven comments on a wide range of consultations involving animal-protection issues.

The group also has active programmes that aim to prevent animals from being abused for food, clothing, entertainment, or any other purpose. As a result of its work, numerous companies have pledged not to use fur, leather, or other animal-derived materials in their products or made other changes to benefit animals, as have many individuals. It has also provided information to help secure convictions for cruelty-to-animals offences and has driven forward improved animal-protection legislation.
