PETA: Springing into action
When you discover how cruelly many animals are treated, how thoroughly they are exploited and how greatly they suffer at our hands, you often feel paralyzed.
The depth of their misery seems so huge and what you can do seems so small. It’s an understandable reaction. Yet, if you’ve ever felt that way, then we have a few words for you! The Animal Rights Weekend Warrior
is the perfect companion for those who want to do something but can’t commit themselves full-time to it. In fifty-two handy cards, you can become a year-round activist carrying out simple yet practical tasks that can make a difference.
A Primer on Animal Rights
and Speaking Out for Animals
offer practical and inspirational ways for you to help the animals. Primer
uncovers the facts about six dimensions of animal cruelty: agriculture, hunting, experimentation and science, entertainment, wildlife, and companion animals, and allows you to choose your area of interest, while Speaking Out
profiles the many people who have decided to rescue animals and have succeeded in making their lives better. Beauty without the Beasts
offers perhaps the simplest way you can stop being cruel, by not wearing animals in order to make yourself look beautiful, while Cats and Dogs Are People, Too

Last, but not least, you'll always feel encouraged in your activities after you've read The Longest Struggle
