I too can think of more worthy organizations to support.</div>
</div>
<br>
From "PETA: What do y'all think about them?"<br><br>
This thread is about worthy alternatives to PeTA.<br><br>
The three that readily come to my mind, but in no particular order, are:<br><br>
1) Compassion Over Killing<br><br><a href="http://www.cok.net/" target="_blank">http://www.cok.net/</a><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><b>COK is a nonprofit animal advocacy organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. with an additional office in Los Angeles.</b> Working to end animal abuse since 1995, COK focuses on cruelty to animals in agriculture and promotes vegetarian eating as a way to build a kinder world for all of us, both human and nonhuman. <a href="http://www.cok.net/about/" target="_blank"><i>Learn more about COK and contact us in DC or Los Angeles!</i></a></div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
2) Humane Society of the US<br><br><br><a href="http://www.humanesociety.org/" target="_blank">http://www.humanesociety.org/</a><br><br>
3) Vegan Outreach<br><br><a href="http://www.veganoutreach.org/" target="_blank">http://www.veganoutreach.org/</a>

I highly suggest the HSUS. I have worked with them closely and definetly know they have good intentions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I've never heard of Vegan Outreach until now...thanks for the link!<br><br>
I also like In Defense of Animals. They have some great campaigns. (<a href="http://www.idausa.org" target="_blank">www.idausa.org</a>)

I don't support any charities atm, but when I am earning again I'd like to donate to Dr Hadwen Trust <a href="http://www.drhadwentrust.org/" target="_blank">http://www.drhadwentrust.org/</a> , I haven't looked into them a great deal but it seems to me that whilst boycotting products for cosmetics works, the only real way to change things for animal testing with regards to medicine is to fund people looking for and developing alternate methods.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Also the vegan society, because I think they do a lot of good for people who want to be vegan (or are intrested in it) with regards to good, factual, reliable information and support. Things like the animal free shopper guide, their vitamins and their book on nutrition have helped me stay vegan more than anything else really (apart from myself that is!).<br><br>
Those are the two main animal ones I can think of off the top of my head. I'd also prefer to support numerous other charities that have nothing to do with animals... but I'm not sure that that's what you're after.

<br>
I would like to focus on organizations that would promote the well-being of animals* and/or promote veg*nism but would not have the negative features of PeTA.<br><br>
*I'm not sure whether that is the right phraseology, but I'm not sure how to put it.

^ Gotcha. I figured as much, it just came to mind that I don't only support animal charities. Thanks for giving the links I didn't think to <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

There are a few organisations based in my own country (not worth mentioning to you guys as you wouldn't know them) that are way more worthwhile to me than peta.

Not sure if this counts but BUAV are an organisation that are looking to end Animal testing (on cosmetics and the like) whilst urging companies to use fixed cut off dates in their products. Basically an independant judge on who is truely Cruelty Free.<br><br><a href="http://www.buav.org" target="_blank">www.buav.org</a><br><a href="http://www.gocrueltyfree.org" target="_blank">www.gocrueltyfree.org</a>

Sorry to be so picky, but I think we have gone a little bit overboard with the use of initial-isms.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Animal Aid.<br><br>
I generally just like their shop but they've done protests etc in my local area and they've had good press from that (from the local newspaper) and they're just awesome. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
Oh and Viva!

thank you for this!<br><br>
does anyone know of any good sites geared toward children? My 9 yr old is interested in learning more but I dont want to have her stumble across videos or pictures that are too graphic for her right now...just knowing where her food came from was enough for her to go veggie. I know there is peta kids but i was really hoping there is a good alternate out there! I am going to explore these sites too!

So??<br>
Maybe people didnt know that. I just posted a direct link to it. its called BUAV...thats how they label products they approve...and most organisations tend to use Acronyms...<br>
I really dont see your point :/

^ Yes that's what I was going to say. If .Goth-Alice. had called them the "British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection" I probally wouldn't have made the connection and realised who she meant, because they go by the BUAV, that's how they're known and that's the name they use on products approved by them.
