Help a Bear—Donate Today!

In nature, bears like Nanook and Tutter don’t ride bicycles, do handstands, or balance on balls. Circuses that use bears and other animals condemn them to terrifying and cruel training methods and cramped living conditions—breaking their spirits.

Bears desperately need the help of compassionate people like you. Your donation to PETA today will help power crucial campaigns to stop the abuse of bears and other animals used for entertainment.

PETA entities have more than 9 million members and supporters globally, and PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world.

We are a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation funded almost exclusively by the contributions of individual donors like you. Your gift is an investment in our work, which is why we strive to use our funds in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible. In 2020, over 82% of our operating expenses went directly to our programs fighting animal exploitation.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved.

For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?

—Ingrid E. Newkirk, PETA President and co-author of Animalkind
