I began working with PETA about nine years ago doing web design, and at times it can be challenging and heart-wrenching having to see footage of undercover investigations in industries that use and abuse animals or to put up with trolling and hate on the internet when I mention where I work. But it is also one of the most rewarding parts of my life. I may not play a large role in this very dedicated, hard working, and compassionate organization, but I am proud to be a small part of an amazing team. The people I work with inspire me every day. The video below shows some of PETA’s accomplishments on behalf of animals in the past year. 2014 marked many strides forward in animal rights, but we still have a long way to go.
