Become a PETA Member and save animals' skins
Please become a PETA member today and help us save even more animals lives in 2011. -- Join Now! Dear ,

A baby harp seal lies sleepily on the ice after a long swim in Canada's frigid coastal waters. Just 8 weeks old, she is too young to understand the danger as a sealer approaches, club in hand. Her bright black eyes are questioning as the sealer swings his heavy club down on top of her head, crushing her skull. Stunned but alive, she feels incredible pain as the skin is torn from her body. Bloody and broken, she is left to die slowly in agony.

Animals from Canada to China to Australia to the U.S. are being exploited and killed for their skin. Will you help us stop the suffering of these and other animals by becoming a PETA member right now?

PETA's 2011 New Member Drive is in full swing, and thousands of compassionate individuals just like you are committing to our fight to save animals. Won't you join them as PETA's newest member?

The annual slaughter of Canada's harp seals is the largest massacre of marine mammals on Earth. Each year, tens of thousands of gentle harp seals are shot or bludgeoned to death. Most of them are slaughtered before they are 3 months old, and many are killed in front of other terrified seals.

Similarly gruesome scenes take place everywhere animals are slaughtered for their skin. On Chinese fur farms, dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals are ripped from their filthy, cramped cages and beaten with pipes and fists before being skinned alive. These hellish farms make up the largest source of fur imported into the U.S.

In Australia, lambs are pinned into metal braces as skin and flesh is cut from their backsides with gardening shears, leaving bloody, open wounds that often become infested with maggots. Their wool is sold all around the world, and in their final days, they are sent to poorly regulated slaughterhouses in the Middle East and Africa.

We cannot allow these animals to continue to suffer so terribly and die so badly for people's vanity. Please become a PETA member today and support PETA's lifesaving work for all animals. Your PETA membership includes a complimentary subscription to our lively quarterly magazine, Animal Times, as well as other member-exclusive benefits, the most important being the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to save animals through your gift.

Through the dedication of PETA's more than 2 million members and supporters, people like you, we are winning the fight against fur. The international market for seal fur is disappearing, and polls show that a majority of Canadians want this abomination to end. PETA has mobilized hundreds of thousands of people to speak out against the horrors of the Chinese fur trade. The Chinese government has responded to this growing international pressure by introducing draft legislation for the country's first-ever animal protection law.

Through our groundbreaking undercover investigations and eye-opening campaigns, we've convinced a growing number of designers and retailers not to use or sell fur—and have persuaded millions of consumers not to buy it. And at the very end of the year, President Obama signed the Truth in Fur Labeling Act, which ensures that people will no longer be sold "faux fur" that actually came from a living, feeling animal.

Make no mistake about it—this cruel industry is dying. In 2011, we can move closer to the day when no animal is caged and killed for "fashion." But we can't keep up the fight without your support. Please don't wait—become a PETA member for 2011 online right now.

For all the animals whose skins we can save this year, thank you for your continued partnership and generous support.

Kind regards,

Ingrid E. Newkirk

P.S. PETA is the largest and most effective animal rights organization in the world. It is also the best—and often only—hope for animals who are threatened by the fur and exotic-skins industries. But we cannot accomplish anything for animals without your help. Please become a member today.
