PETA - Expose Abuse. Rescue Animals. Investigations & Rescue Fund. What if investigating animal abuse were illegal?
Nudge - Nudge was rescued from an animal hoarder as the result of a recent PETA undercover investigation. But if pending legislation in Iowa and other states becomes law and spreads as it threatens to, there may be no relief for abused animals like her. Join PETA's Investigations & Rescue Fund! Dear Anne,

An undercover investigation helped saved Nudge's life.

For six months, a PETA investigator documented widespread abuse and neglect at a South Carolina "sanctuary." In February, soon after our shocking investigation was made public, a judge ordered some 240 cats housed in filthy conditions at the facility to be seized and given the veterinary care that they needed. Nudge was one of those cats.

But imagine if Nudge and the other animals had never been seized—not because they were fine and dandy but because the abuse could not be investigated. Right now, state legislators in the U.S. are considering such a ban on PETA's ability to get the goods on cruel operations that abuse animals. Legislators are working to enact new laws that could prevent undercover investigations like this one from ever happening—and potentially put undercover investigators like PETA's behind bars!

PETA's painstakingly difficult undercover investigative work is one the most important aspect of our efforts in behalf of victimized animals. We've set up a special program, the Investigations & Rescue Fund, to allow our dedicated members to support this work with a monthly gift.

Please join this fight. Help us make more rescues like Nudge's possible by becoming a monthly supporter of PETA's Investigations & Rescue Fund right now.

From Florida to Iowa to Minnesota, lawmakers have spent recent weeks debating so-called "anti-filming laws." These cunning bills are being sold under the guise of preventing anyone from "interfering with an animal facility or crop operation," yet they have little to nothing to do with protecting either animals or workers. That is evident by the fact that the bills are strongly supported by some of the same industries—including operators of factory farms, puppy mills, and animal testing laboratories—responsible for many of the horrifying abuses of animals that PETA undercover investigators have exposed many times, forcing operators to change practices, spend money, and fire workers.

For example, Iowa is the largest pork-producing state in the nation, and its factory farms are no stranger to cruelty-to-animals exposés. In 2008, a PETA undercover investigation of an Iowa factory farm that supplied pigs to Hormel Foods revealed that workers were beating pigs with metal rods, sexually abusing them with canes, and more. This case was so shocking that even pork industry officials had to publicly condemn the abuse, and the investigation eventually lead to the state's first-ever convictions for abuse or neglect of factory-farmed pigs.

But if these new bills are enacted, investigators seeking to expose abuses like those we documented on that Iowa farm could face arrest, stiff fines, and even jail time, and their evidence of wrongdoing would never see the light of day. These laws are designed to shroud animal abuse in secrecy and hide from the public the horrors that animals are subjected to behind the closed doors of factory farms and similar facilities.

By becoming a monthly supporter of PETA's Investigations & Rescue Fund today, you'll provide us with the reliable resources that we need to continue our groundbreaking undercover investigative work—even when faced with these new legislative challenges. Your Investigations & Rescue Fund gift will be charged at the same time each month, and you can change or cancel your donation at any time.

For the sake animals like Nudge—who would no doubt still be suffering were it not for PETA investigators—please support the Investigations & Rescue Fund with your gift right now.

Kind regards,
Ingrid E. Newkirk

P.S. We need your help to stand up to attempts to hide animal abuse behind "anti-filming" legislation. Won't you support our work to expose—and stop—animal abuse wherever and whenever it occurs by becoming a monthly Investigations & Rescue Fund donor today?
