PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Germany is an affiliate of PETA US, the largest animal rights organisation in the world. Guided by the motto that animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way, PETA exposes cruelty to animals, informs the public, and advocates for a kind, compassionate and respectful treatment of all animals. The group acts in the tradition of social justice movements and advocates for the end of speciesism – a human-supremacist worldview that justifies the exploitation or exclusion of living beings based solely on their species. They are working towards an end to the exploitation, mistreatment of and discrimination against animals and strive to establish their rights.
